I went out to a few yard sales this past weekend and was not finding much. I stumbled upon a sale that had a blanket with miscellaneous items on it at the end of the driveway. A sign said everything on the blanket was FREE! On this blanket I found this plastic folder full of Highlights magazines from the 1970's. I didn't think twice before taking it home with me.
They are all in immaculate condition. As a Canadian these are part of my childhood memories. I am so pleased with this find!
I recently found this old single window in my parents garage. We were doing some spring clean up and found it at the back of the garage. I instantly knew I wanted to make it into a chalkboard. I then picked up this triple pane window for $5 bucks. The middle piece of glass was missing but I knew I could make it lovely.
Before: a good cleaning is needed!
Before: missing a piece of glass in the middle.
I caulked around the back of the glass as it was really loose and rattling.
After: I painted the glass with chalkboard paint. The middle section I made into a magnetic message board and covered it with fabric.
After: chalkboard paint and some white for the trim.
