I Made You Something......



It’s a picture frame.   It’s my favorite color.  It’s distressed.  I hope you like it.      

OK so I only made one of you something I wish I could make something for every one but you know how it is. 




This giveaway is my way of saying THANK YOU for following my little blog!!   I passed the 300 follower mark this month, Whoot!  I appreciate every one of you, every comment, and I love being able to visit your blogs and peak into your life.  I find inspiration every day.  I am blown away at how kind this blog world is. 



Here's the low down on how I made it.  I started with an old scratched up picture frame then added some bead board using my chopsaw to miter the corners.  I cut the tung of the beadboard off with the table saw then finished it off with some simple trim. 


Painted my fav blue, distressed and glazed with dark stain.



Working with wood and powertools is my favorite kind of project so I thought this was a fitting.  It was alot of fun for me to make escpecially since it will go to one of my awesome readers.  

To enter all you have to do is be a follower of this blog and leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite season is.  You can tell me why too but that's not required it would just be fun.



I will draw the winner on Wednesday September 7th.  (Must be in US or Canada to win)

Thank you again for following!

  10. I love the fall. I like it to be cool at night and in the morning and then glorious during the day. I love decorating the mantle with freshly cut hops and my crow collection.

  13. I do follow you and enjoy your projects and design ascetics. Lovely frame. Summer is full of colour and bright ideas but then winter is nesting and resting time and projects. Spring is cool and kinda 'let's get started' but fall is whoa, almost finished outside time. Hmm, I like them all and I'm glad to experience the changes.

  19. Fall...hands down. I love the crisp smell in the chilly air and the watercolor scenery as nature settles in for a long winter's nap. I am reminded to slow down, enjoy, and be ready for the newness of life that is to come.

  20. Mimi,
    Fall is my favorite season. It's a season of such beautiful color, crisp days and nights! If I win the frame, It will be a gift to my husband with a photograph of our beautiful Chocolate Lab, Shelby. The frame would be perfect on the ledge in our dining room! Happy Weekend!

  21. Congratulations on passing the 300 mark, Mimi! I haven't commented much here but I subscribe by email and I'm consistently wowed by how talented and resourceful you are. That pretty little frame is a perfect example of that. :)

    My favorite is coming up...fall! I love the cooler evenings, the change of the leaves and firing up our wood stove to heat the house. And decorating, of course!

  22. love your blog. My fav season is fall. I always hate the hot hot summer of Texas and Fall is my saving grace. I am finally able to sleep again. I need cold to relax and so I'm so tense and sleep deprived during the summer.
