Howdy all! It’s slowly but surely warming up here…just a tad. And it’s been sunny. I’ll take it!!
A few weeks ago I was honored to be asked to join in on the Creating with the Stars challenge over at East Coast Creative. I was partnered up with a blogger who would be completing the projects and I was there (virtually anyway) to offer support and ideas.
Well, my blogger was a rock star – probably because her name is Sarah. ;) She blogs over at While They Snooze…love that title.
Allow me to brag on her and her projects a bit, won’t you? The first week she knocked it out of the park with a project that started with a tire. Yep, a big, heavy tire:
She found it on the side of the road and found a use for it – I love the way her mind works!
Her and her hubby made a base out of plywood, then cut out some legs with a jigsaw as well:
They created a top with the plywood so it could actually be used as a table:
After that was done it was time to hide the tire. You didn’t think she was keeping it, right? ;)
It involved lots and lots of rope:
Who would ever think that was a tire under there? And it’s the perfect height and size for next to a chair. Totally funky and fun and pretty much free! (The whole tutorial is up at ECC here.)
I think her next project was my favorite one for the challenge – she was inspired by plate art from Anthropologie that was…get ready for this -- $7,500. Choke.
She made her own with 30 dollar store plates and a few other supplies:
I know, brilliant, right?
She hung each plate, making sure each line was level:
Then she used a projector to get an image up on the wall and large enough to trace with a Sharpie:
Amazing! It really came out beautifully:
