Junk Wood Christmas Centerpiece

The before picture for this project has a funny story to go along with it.  Katie--who blogs at Creatively Living--spotted this wood sticking out of a garbage pile while she was on a family jog.  She convinced her husband to help her load it onto the back of their stroller so she could haul it home.  What a sight!

Tree Trunk to Chalkboard

Megan's grandmother had these pieces of wood in her garage leftover from where she had a tree cut down.  Megan, who blogs at Megan Brooke Handmade, was pretty sure she could turn them into something fabulous.  So, with Grandma's permission, she took a few home.
