recipe holder

It's a cutie!... This is what I did...

I purchased a 1x8x4 at Lowes and a large square dowel...

I also purchased a small craft circle...

My first step was to cut the dowel. I cut it about 11" long. I then used my Gorilla Glue Epoxy to attach the dowel to my wood circle.

I then cut my 1x8 10" long. I used the epoxy to attach the 1x8 piece to the front of the dowel.

Then I let it dry a bit...

I used my drill to put a hole in the top for the finial.

And here is was ready for paint!!!

I painted that with Rustoleum American Accents Heirloom White spray paint. After that was dry I started working on the next step.

I decided to shanty the edges up a bit with my sander and a bit of Minwax Dark Walnut stain...

I then added a bit of Ralph Lauren Smoke Glaze... You guys know the routine!!

I found this galvanized roof flashing at Lowe's...

I cut a piece just a bit smaller than the plaque I attached to the dowel.

I then used my epoxy again to attach the metal to the plaque to the wood piece. I added a silver nail in each
corner for a bit of shanty-ness!!

Now for my magnets... I used the same super cute Fleur-de-lis wood pieces that Ash used on a previous procect. I painted and glzed them the same and then used some Gorilla Glue to attach the magnets.

All finished... Now it just needs a great recipe...
