Quick Projects

Small changes and additions to small thrifted and garage sale items. 

Used CeCe Caldwell chalk-clay paint, Fusion Heirloom paint, Rustoleum blackboard paint, 'words' small stencil, painters tape and small stencil brush, all handy in my kitchen/work area.

Finished clip board, rice container and (not) Bird Feeder (see lower in page).

Taped, painted and ready to seal the finish with chalk.

After each project dried I rubbed white chalk over all surfaces and rubbed off again.

Here is the whoops - its not a bird seed dispenser, its a Rabbit Feeder.

Two metal leaky containers and some stencilled words made two garden art pieces.

Perked up a little bird house.

Small quick projects, some practical, some to add to the garden.


  1. How creative you are! Love all of your ideas.


  2. Such cute projects. You have inspired me!

  3. Very cute projects! I've not used the CeCe Caldwell paints, just Annie Sloan. It's on my list of things to try though!

  4. Those smalls are the moneymakers, aren't they? Nice work, Joy!

  5. Love the cute ideas! I usually make my own chalky paint. It's really easy!! :) Thanks for sharing at Dishing It & Digging It!

  6. I have some things I am itching to stencil if LIFE ever slows down!!
    Love how you do things like these!

  7. Joy, I love quick projects and by adding a little paint and stencils you can really make small things look new or fresh in no time! I like all of your updates, but the little rabbit feeder is my favourite!

  8. I love the bird feeder idea! So cute :)

  9. That rabbit feeder is an adorable find! And I like the birdhouse/home, too. Until I owned a booth I did not appreciate the benefit of quick projects! Your's are cute!

  10. What great projects, Joy! Thanks for linking them up at Talk of the Town - I pinned it to the Knick of Time party board!


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
