Welcome to my first ever Frugal Friday! Times are hard, for everyone . Even when the cash flow is low you can still create for little, to no, money. This week I had a pile of scrap wood from another project I was working on.
Even if you don’t have spare pieces laying around they are super affordable , at only $1 a piece , pick one up next time you are at your favorite home improvement store .
For Christmas my oldest son got a VERY special room make-over, I will reveal that later. Afterwords , I was left with lots of scrap pieces of wood . Since, I have moved on to making over my youngest sons room. Heading towards the finish line, I needed a little something special to complete his room.
His room, without being too “theme-y” , has a very rustic feel. I started with cute little sheets
and added lots of “boy stuff” and “stuff that goes” related things and came up with this rustic highway sign to round it all out.
I secured all of the scrap pieces together with intentions of creating a squared off piece. I ended up liking the random rustic-ness of all the mismatched pieces.
With a quick route 66 shape and theme with the addition of our name, I have a cute little piece for my sons brand new room. This cost $0 and took me 5 minutes to create. The black outline and details were simply created with a sharpie marker. Easy enough , eh?
Be sure to come back next week and I will show you the rest of this space.
