I’m back live! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday! We spent time up in Appleton visiting Brenton’s family and down in Kenosha with my family. It was Tristan’s first Christmas, so we had a great time opening presents and playing with his new toys. With a few extra days off work, we also had time to work on some Pinterest projects.
For the longest time I’ve wanted to create something that holds my race medals and bibs for my half marathons.
This project was very easy. I got the wood from Hobby Lobby for $2.99. Then I painted the wood a slate blue and distressed it with steel wool. I also painted some clothes pins to hold the bibs. Finally, I bought the hangers for the medals at Menards for a buck or two. Voilà! For more race medal hanger ideas, see my running page on Pinterest.
The next project I did was completely girly and I love it! It’s a DIY necklace holder with knobs you would find at Anthrolpologie.
Instead of spending $8-12 for Anthropologie knobs, I only spent $2 per knob at Hobby Lobby. This really saved me money on this project. I think the whole necklace hanger cost me about $13 (the wood was scrap but we bought a small container of paint to distress the wood).
