Using hardware, frames, wood, and knobs!

Honestly everyone likes something that is a little different right!  With some great knobs Tara and I came up with some cool ways to use them.  For this project we took our scrap wood, paint, burlap, tiny nails, a close pin and of coarse pick a fun knob!  Be sure to use the sticky spray to make sure the burlap lays down flat.  Drill a hole for your knob.  Nail the burlap down to keep it in place.  Use the glue gun for the close pin!  WOW ~ So awesome right!

I used a Paris clock like knob!  FUN!

This next project is so simple it is silly!  So find an old door from your kitchen,  a thrift store, salvage store, the dump, ect...PAINT it a fun color!  Then find some fun knobs and drill a couple of holes and install your knobs.  Find a frame and use spray paint of what ever color you prefer and be sure to take out the glass.  Use wood glue and press firmly on the door.  Then lastly take a close pin and glue gun it to the door as well!  Now how easy and cute is this!
Lets go ladies ~ surprise your husband and friends with something cool you put together.

Hi everyone!  My name is Maggie and  I have just joined Tara's blog Urban Hoot!  I was going to start with her last year but was caught up in a lot of other stuff and never got around to this awesome fun until this fall!  We decided it was time to start taking our passion to the next level.  So we started buying furniture, making some unique projects, and I started going to craft stores.  Something I never would have guessed myself ever enjoying!  I do though...a lot.  So much so that I don't remember having this much fun in a while.  Today we went to Hobby Lobby.  Have you ever been there?  It is like a super Walmart BUT all craft stuff!  If Tara wouldn't have been there I would have been in full panic!  But she was there so I was able to navigate through at a pretty good pace and find some cool stuff.  Here is a few pics of what we found!

So many fabrics to choose from!
