A discovery of some old wooden trail markers led to re-purposing them into these cute and campy useful household trays. They’re sure to be a hit any time you bring them out.
To make your own, search for any thick old wooden signs or boards that fit your style. Then choose sturdy handles – new or old, either will do – and screws for affixing them to your wooden sign/board.
Here’s what to do:
1. Thoroughly clean the sign with a scrub brush and warm sudsy water.
2. Let dry. Sand any rough spots if necessary.
3. Place the handles on the sign, marking the holes for the screws with a pencil. Remove the handles and drill-start the holes for the screws.
4. Reposition the handles and screw them on.
IT'S ME, SERENA!
In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
