I like rustic decor and it seems to be a bit of a trend all over. That may be why I do fairly decent at my craft shows, for being a no-name crafter that is.
Sometimes I can get my hubby to show a little enthusiasm too. Especially if I can convince him that what I need him to do is simple.
He helped me out a lot with the memo boards & chalkboards. So I showed him what I thought was a simple project, but proved to be a little more laborious than I anticipated, but he/we got'er done!
I was going to post the picture here of the inspiration piece, but I'm having problems getting it to post no matter how I try.
So here's our black painted version, which has graphics added to it, where the other one was just plain dark blue.
Sorry about the poor photo quality, but it's been so gloomy & rainy all week, that I had to use my flash and I still couldn't get the photo editing program to help me create the money shot.
But in these shots I wanted to show how it works great for Keurig coffee pod storage, boxed or not.
And this a close-up of the graphic I used, which is the same one I made for the wooden grain scoop I decorated too.
I put it in my craft show this past weekend, but it didn't sell. I sort of followed my hubby's advise on the price, but I think it was too high. Actually, he wanted it to be priced even higher, but I disagreed with that one for sure! I've done enough shows in our area to have a better idea of what the threshold is for people in our area. I'm not saying that no one would ever pay his asking price, but it's just gonna a take a while to find the right person, but I don't want to hang onto it that long. LOL!
It may not be the perfect solution for everyone, but it does work.
