MY LATEST VIDEOS

These fun label/place holders are quick, easy and so cheap!  They are a great way to dress up a table and make it look like you went to a lot of workWinking smile

Here’s how you can easily make your own:

2 by 4

Purchase 1 2×4 @ 8ft. long from your local hardware store.

cut blocks

This is the perfect saw for this project.  It is inexpensive and easy to use ~ great start if you are new to wood working!

 

Rustoleum heirloom white

I painted my blocks with a VERY favorite, Rust-Oleum Heirloom White spray paint (2 coats).

 

distress edges

I use 80-grit sand paper in my 3M sanding block to distress the edges.

 

stain edges

After distressing, I follow-up with one coat of Rust-Oleum Early American Stain.  Apply a small amount with a foam brush and wipe away after 5 minutes.  (Tip:  stain will get all over the blocks when you wipe away and that is even better!)

card holders

These are the card holders I purchased and I love them!  I have ordered them several times for previous projects!

Now for the labelsWinking smile

printables

These are so versatile and could be used all around the houseSmile

    You always have the best posts. It’s actually things you will use (even in several different areas or ways) and not just stuff that will find it’s way to the garage. Merry Christmas!
