Creative Chalkboard

Start looking for your old kitchen or bathroom cabinet doors. Typically they are already finished and the prep is very simple.....Look in antique stores in your community. The Peddlers Mall in Lexington is a great start, also, look at your local Good Will stores and your local habitat for humanity stores called Re-Store. Have fun Shopping!!!!!!!!!

Hello All,
Welcome to our new blog about crafting and creating new and great items for your home.  We both love to find old items and turn them into something new and useful.  Everyone has talent and can be a gifted re-creater.  You must expand your mind, learn to look at things in a different light, and know the resources that are available to you to start a project. 
We will walk through many projects and give detailed descriptions of how to re purpose them into something new and the best places to find items to redo.  Hope you enjoy everything and please feel free to comment and ask questions.  We will post other items too, that pertaining to the arts, we love Christmas paintings that are simple to do and even host "Painting Parties" at times, to help new artists create masterpieces to give as gifts or keep for themselves. 

Here is our first project...........A vintage suitcase found at a local antique mall for $5.00.....Can you envision what our project will be?  Have fun and be creative and we will post the finished project with descriptions and costs of building a luxury item.
