Wild West Puppet Theater for Kids

This one was first posted over at Crafts Unleashed but I thought I would share it here in case you missed it.  My wild west puppet theater for kids is the perfect way to spend a rainy day.  A few supplies and you can be on your way to a fun theater full of imagination.  Plus this is a small project that can be easily stored when not in use.  I always worry about storing those huge puppet theaters when the kids are not playing with them.  Lets turn a dreary rainy day into a day filled with smiles and laughter.

Rustic Gold Centerpiece

I had this idea to cover barn wood with some metallic gold paint.  It turned out awesome.  But I just couldn’t stop there.  This rustic gold centerpiece was the result.  Use this for a dinner party or even for Thanksgiving.  A few bottles and some barn wood can become this rustic beauty in just a few minutes.  This post is a part of my design team status with DecoArt.  I am compensated for my participation however all projects and opinions are my own.
