Greetings friends!

How’s your fall season shaping up so far?

I’ve started to do some fall cleanup outdoors, but also worked on a project! I meant to decorate for fall, but this happened instead…

This past week I shared one of my absolute favorite TV tray makeovers ever, that has rustic written all over it! Literally…

Wood crate TV trays makeover with Funky Junk's Old Sign Stencils

A plain TV tray was instantly turned into what resembles a wood crate end, and all it took was  a couple of wood strips and a crate-styled stencil!

Isn’t it sharp?! This is also one of the newer stencils that have been recently released, so it was fun to put it into action! This stencil was inspired by an actual antique crate, so it was fun to get that look into my livingroom!

Other than that, some Christmas stencil designs are coming along! One of my most visited posts at the moment is THIS pallet Christmas tree sign tutorial, so I am going to create something similar this year as well! Stay tuned…

So until then, let’s get on with the party by visiting these super creative upcycled project features from last week’s party…
