Hello all you craft-crazy-Craft-O-Maniac-readers, (say that fast 5 times!). I’m Bliss and I blog over at BlissRanch. I’m pretty tickled to have something featured here with Jen one of the crafting queens in blogland. I stop here for inspiration, so to have her fancy something I made enough to invite me over, well lets just say my head got a little too big for my hat to fit nice.
|Dino The TV
Our family room got an update at Christmas. A new television that takes up the width of allotted space and replaces a big ‘ol dinosaur of a tv.
The dino was built in with a cabinet above it, housing more junk than you can shake a stick at. And I’m a short stick. I couldn’t reach to do more than pop in a cd, if I could find or reach the cd in the first place.
When the old tv cabinet left, it also left an empty space above the new tv. Light pours in this area till the sun leaves the sky – makes for a bright happy space (hard to take photos in). After Christmas the tv sat on a toy box for a few months till I ordered a hanging bracket for the wall. Then the project just sort of stopped waiting for further inspiration.
My husband, who I call Brawn, (because I’m the brains of the operation and he’s the muscle) decided to use the old wood from the tall cabinet to make a short cabinet and do a poured concrete top with a rough edge for a rustic look.
That’s his style. Rough & Rustic.

He stained the concrete with acid stain in some earthy colors and dabbed some on the edges.
I was a lucky duck recipient of the Pass It On Project.
then cut it apart between each sign.
Like a puzzle we could line it all back up once the first piece was nailed to the wall,
by matching the taped spot with the piece above.
