Here is a little something I made from leftover 2 x 3's. I got some inspiration from my girlfriend, Ashley, who made her mama's some cute pumpkins! ( Ill post that picture as soon as she sends me one... ASH!!)
So here they are..
I made a pair for myself, and a pair for my mom. She needs some fall inspiration by her front door. So why not make her some?! Perfect gift for the holidays or a just cause, and perfect for fall decor! I am in love with fall decor, hence the decor tutorials!
Ok.. So you wanna know how to make these?
Seriously took me... hmmm... and hour total.. dry time included!
Ok.. here it is.
I cut scrap 2 x 3s I had leftover from a previous project. I just started cutting. How ever wide or tall, depending on the orientation you want your pumpkin to stand. Measure them out to the size you want and cut. I cut to make four blocks for mine, and I had some smaller pieces for a small pumpkin and made that one with 3. So you can totally customize this project for your measurements.
|Cut and Sanded. Wiped down.|
|Paint is called Pumpkin Orange. Stain is for later|
|Spray your blocks. 2 coats. Front and back.|
|I distressed mine a little with an electric sander.|
|My BFF, Gorilla wood glue. Glue them together. I waited about 10 mins but they are secure after 30, and fully dry after 24 hrs.|
You will have to wait for another post to see the transformation of this nightstand to an end table bookcase! Love it!
Here is another picture of the ones for my mom.
|I spray painted all the blocks with the pumpkin orange, and I wanted a white one, so I sprayed heirloom white over that. The orange came through perfectly after the distressing step! Love it!|
I just may be making myself a larger white one for outside!?!
