This leads me to my latest craft. (On a side note, I will not ever be using that word going forward. I'll be calling it 'handmade stuff' for now until I come up with something better, and I'm open to suggestions.) So I've mentioned before how hard it is to find cool stuff for your front door. I'm still on that quest. And honestly, I still haven't seen anything that is just perfect. So I had an idea to make something. I'm not sure how I feel about it. Does it belong in a store called Karrie's Kountry Kraft Shack? Be honest with me people. PLEASE... tell me what you think. I'm undecided. I'm not really drawn to anything that would use the word "shabby" in it's description. Is it too crafty? Have I just spent hours on something that has no use?
Maybe I could just give my front door a really nice paint job, and be done with it. That way I wouldn't have to spend so much time Photoshopping out the cracks and bumps out of these pictures!
A side note to my burlap-crafting-friends (if I still have any after this post): Did you know that black burlap turns a lovely shade of coral when bleached? I really wanted a grey burlap, and thought I'd try to bleach it. It quickly turned a beautiful burnt orange. I left it in there to see what would happen, and after a few minutes it was coral. I hung it up to dry, and where the bleach collected and the bottom, it turned a really pretty pink. You can see it in the bottom left side of this pic.
