~back to school~{almost}

 Tomorrow I am heading into Ruffles and Rust Square to re-do my booth in a "back to school" theme.
I am so excited! I have been busy working on projects and am so happy with how they are turning out!
Today I am diving into my supply of vintage yardsticks and creating with them.
I thought I'd show you a few clever ideas I found here.
 I have made these coat racks myself as teacher gifts before, they were a big hit!
 Here is a unique drawer pull idea and check out those stairs leading to a work room!
 I'm going to do something a little more simple, maybe something like this container....
I'll be sure to take photos of my space when it is done!

Great ideas!!!! We used yardsticks to create a chair rail and baseboards in our booth. Can't believe it's already to time for back to school!

How cute! One of my favorite little sewing shops has a countertop made out of yardsticks. Cute post.

That means I'll be heading to your booth early this week! Love what you are doing there! My home is filled with your beautiful creations!

Those are so much fun Melaine!! But I'd have a hard time actually using those beautiful old sticks in a project...don't know why, but it's one thing I can't repurpose into something else! Can't wait to see what else you come up with though! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I love the drawers idea! I'm redoing my sons room in retro cowboy and a old brown dresser with those pulls would be amazing
