The Junk Drunk Link Party No. 6

Happy Junk Drunk Link Party! So how about a junk makeover?  Hooray! I found this vintage school house chalk board at a thrift shop and hurtled over people and furniture to get to it first.  I knew exactly how I wanted to use it as soon as I saw it. I really like the green chalkboard color…

Grudge Match Final Round: Me versus My Project

I got up early again on Sunday, Day Two and Round 67 by this time, and with my coffee in hand, I stared bleary eyed at my two sets of table legs and table top.  I took a big swig from my coffee cup and looked at my sets of table legs.  One cross piece…
