Projects .....

I decided to post some of the projects that have kept me busy lately! I love wood crafts as most of you already know. I love coming up with new ideas!

New picture wall hanger for girls room:


(This picture wasn't staged either. I looked out the window and this is what I saw, so I grabbed my camera~ I think it is so precious!)

New Sofa table for my front room:





My Sisters Ali and Hanna both have made sofa tables, so I decided to try my hand at it too! So I drew up a sketch and designed this table! I love how it turned out! Plus more decorating space ~ Bonus!!



New Huge wall frame for above my fireplace:


(Now I just need pictures to fill it!)

Wood crafts are my release and my outlet! It is something I enjoy and am always on the look out to try new things or design something new!! If any of you have any ideas or a place you go for ideas let me know! :) Enjoy!!

Ooh--I love the sofas table, Bon! Though, if it were at my house, it would be covered with back issues of magazines, random books, and some Star Wars figurines . . . despite my best efforts to decorate. But in a way, that is decorating . . . I call it Noveau Kids.

I'll have to send you some 8x10 pictures of myself to put in those frames. I have hundreds of glamorous shots to choose from--the hardest part for you will be deciding which three to put in! Maybe you could rotate them with your seasonal decor??? You'll probably get sick of telling people that it's really a picture of your favorite sister, and not some supermodel, though.

Ah, the price I pay to be gorgeous . . .

Bon those look awesome! You did such a good job on the sofa table. And the frames turned out awesome. You are so talented and I love that you don't care if I steal your ideas!

I loved the sofa table when I saw it. Bonnie, seriously... you have some talent girl. If I had anymore room in my house for furniture, I would pay you to make me one. You're going to have to show me how you made the picture frames though. I think Dusty has all of the tools, I just never have experimented. It's fun bumping into you now and again. Hope your kitty gets lookin' better! :)

Your sister Becca cracks me up!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your table and the picture frames are perfect!!! Add both of those to my list of things I want you to help me make! You are amazingly awesome!
So.... What are the chances of you coming for the class reunion? Maybe if you make it, we can get together one night and do crafty stuff and chat!

You are so crafty! I can't believe you made those things. Around here I make requests to Hondo & he builds what I say. I did get a skill saw for Christmas though and need some ideas to try it out. Let me know. Your crafts are amazing- good job.

I love all of your projects, will you come do my house?! Becca's comment made me smile because even after 20+ years, she is still the same! I bet your house is looking amazing, I need your talents to rub off on me!!

Bonnie - you are so talented! I am happy to find another person from High School. The joys of blogging!

Question - are you related to any Bunnells in San Diego? I know quite a few in Carlsbad, where I've lived for nearly 10 years. Karen and Roy Bunnell? And their many children?

Anyway, thought it was worth asking!

Hope you are well!

Hey Bon, I just wanted to say "Hi!" Your blog is looking lovely as always. Do you want to update mine, because I just don't have the time or the patience to figure it all out. The crafts look great as always. I did do a little update on my blog, but I need to put some pictures of Calista. She is such a big girl now. You won't believe it. Check it out when you have a chance. Darla

SO, ummm, when is this crafting night get together you keep talking about? Because I seriously love that frame for above your fireplace. Don't do it while I am gone, or you'll be sorry! Nice table! I'm impressed with the design- good job!
