Halloween Recycled Candy Containers


Woohoo, I've been busy sanding and painting the table and chairs I showed you on my last post. Thanks so much for all your kind comments and advice on how to remove all the layers or varnish and lacquer from the old table. I'm almost ready to begin working on that table.

Today's project is an up-cycle, which means it's free if you happen to have the supplies around your house. I used the last two spools that were still in the garage. I already used one of the spools as a desk organizer and two more were used on my Halloween mantel.

DIY Floating Shelves on Hometalk

Floating shelves always intrigued me, their minimalist look was something that spoke to me and made me bring them to my own home.

One of my first projects, about four years ago, even before I started this blog, was to build a floating shelf  to be placed above the television set. It took me some time to create it, the cuts were not perfect, I still remember lots of
