Free is always good...

So when I stopped by my local lumber yard to 
see what I could find... I was overjoyed to find out
that they give away free molding samples!

Yep... FREE.

This piece caught my eye right away...

It came with it's own chalk ledge....

I cut the 10" sample in half and painted each one 
an awesome retro green found in the oops paint at 
Home Depot.

I taped off a spot in the center to paint with
chalkboard paint then added a couple of beads at the
top for a finial.

For the stand on the back I went with my traditional
junk find turned functional...

Repurposing at it's finest!

A rusty lamp piece and an old belt buckle worked perfectly!

Always keeping my eyes open for the possibilities and
never pass up FREE!
