Give Thanks Entry

I really cannot take credit for any of this project. Last month I had plans to visit my BFF Stef around her birthday. She suggested we go shopping at the outlet mall.

A few days before our planned shopping trip, Stef emailed me this photo from Better Homes & Gardens. She mentioned that she had been reading my blog and realised I wasn't spending money in October. She came up with this inexpensive project for us to tackle and it only cost $2 to create.

We started with some old closet doors. Stef happened to have four of these on hand. I suppose you could have the friendly Lowes employees cut some plywood for you if you do not have any laying around.

Stef is a real woman and she knows how to use power tools. She taught me some new skills. Look at me removing those hinges!

We used rollers to paint the doors with Stef's leftover kitchen paint. After figuring out our word placement, we traced paper letters from Microsoft Word onto the doors.

Stef found the paint in the 'oops section,' so it only cost a dollar. She even has plenty of Cheese Whiz hued paint for future projects. I added a few leaves to make my giant give thanks proclamation even more festive.

Thanks Stef for the great idea and lots of fun!
