Repurposed Chair Side Table

repurposed chair table

Hi there, MRL friends!  It's Angie from Knick of Time.  Gail doesn't know it, but the project I have to share with you is in response to a comment Gail left on my blog.  I had turned the back of a chair into a chalkboard and Gail asked what I planned to do with the seat base of the chair.  I hadn't thought that far yet, and it was still sitting in my driveway where I'd cut the back from the base, but I decided to figure it out so I could answer her question! :) … [Read more...]

Porch Sign


Who doesn’t love hanging out on the porch with friends, family and a cold drink?  I know I love sitting outdoors when the weather permits visiting with neighbors.  Recently my neighbor’s niece asked me to make her a porch sign. Her son saw one on Pinterest and she loved it. I think it originated from a former Etsy shop. I’m going to show you how I made this sign for her. I use my Silhouette Portrait to make stencils for signs several days a week. I’ve developed my own way of doing this, and if … [Read more...]

Catch a Catch Can 223


It’s Thursday, time for Catch as Catch Can.  However, I’m sad to say that my weekly party is going to take a hiatus.  It’s time for me to mix things up a bit.  At one time I tried to scale back to once or twice a month and the interaction went way down. I am featuring some great projects from last week, to give them their due, but there will not be a linkup tonight. Until the party starts back up, I invite you to share your projects on MRL Facebook’s #SundayShareDay each Sunday morning. … [Read more...]
