How to make a wooden wall sconce-fixer upper style

Remember the left over pre-fab white bead board from the back of the farmhouse church pew?

 

 

Yep, we found a way to use the last of it.

I have wanted to make something I can hang these Mason jar holders on for quite a while, but to date have just incorporated them on the dining table, porch etc…

So when we saw these metal hooks at the store recently, they made me think of the chippy white Mason jar holders, and well, the rest is another DIY that used everything we already had on hand sans the hooks.

 

 

What I really love about a project like this is

  1. I did not have to buy very many supplies
  2. I was able to use leftovers from a previous project
  3. I had enough Diet Pepsi on hand to complete the project without running to the store (WIN!!!)

The pew that eluded me, for so long.

Was finally mine.

Yep, I have been BEYOND excited to complete this before and after and share it with you! [Read more…]
