Treasures from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore

Last weekend I met up with my lovely, crafty BFF Irina from Frameworq. We connected at the North Vancouver Habitat for Humanity ReStore. That place is filled to the brim with upcycling possibilities! I really liked this chair... For $12 I was super tempted to buy it but I am one girl who does not need another chair.

Here's old chains perfect for an upcycling project. Not sure what but I have no doubt someone could restyle them into something pretty awesome.

And here's where my $2 went... Bag handles for $1.50 and an old clipboard for $0.50. Now that I'm in that whole macrame thang I bet I can whip up a swanky bag with the handles.

And what to do to refresh the clipboard? I want to hang it and clip either a photo or funky card to it.

I thought I could add a stencil to it using Sharpies or gel pens. Or add a coat of chalkboard paint. We shall see!

Today's to do list includes final bits for the book - I get to see the lay out tomorrow. WOW!! Crazy to think it's nearly done and ready for printing. Then I'll be crafting a bit and coming up with easy projects for upcoming Crafternoons.
