Wedding ~ Seating Tag Frame

6:00:00 AM

My daughter's wedding is one month from today so for this week at least my mind will be on wedding projects...

I hope you enjoy a little diversion from my usual posts...

My daughter had her eye on a frame she saw on Pinterest.... 
She wanted it for the seating tags at her wedding.


Together we made a table top version that will be just perfect...

My workshop... just a pile of tools on an old door in a 
corner of the basement...

We drew out a design and ran to Home Depot for wood, screws, 
L-brackets and jute....

Sorry the pictures are kind of bad and so was the lighting!

She measured, I cut, she held and I drilled and screwed...

 We had some great laughs... especially when her fiance called and she explained that she was in the basement with her Mother and power tools while her Father was upstairs cooking dinner.... 

LOL! Around here, that's how we roll.

A quick coat of stain came next...

and then we drilled holes into the wooden sides, we ran jute from side to side to make a "clothes line" to hold the seating tags....

 It turned out just as we had hoped!

We added one more cross piece to the 
bottom to keep it square....

The next step will be their names hand-painted on the 
top piece of wood...

Something like this maybe....
The guests names are on the front and the table numbers on the back.

A great mother-daughter project for her DIY wedding!

I wonder what we can use this for when the wedding is over???
