"R" is for Round 2: Paint & I'm Out

My short stint as a contestant on Creating With the Stars is over.

The project I created for Round 2 is this family refreshments station:

The boxes are made entirely from scrap plywood and copper pipes the previous owner of our home had left in the basement.

I'm feeling a little deflated but honored to have participated and challenged in a new way, it has definitely changed how I look at design and styling.
Thank you to everyone who voted and supported the contest.

I also made the sign above the station out of wood scraps.

I will share the full tutorials on both the boxes and how I constructed the station and the sign in the coming weeks.

Until then back to my regular projects. :)

A huge thank you to my star Beckie from Infarrantly Creative, I couldn't have asked for a better mentor and partner.  She helped me see things in a new light, especially in regards to styling and pushed me to really create a finished look.  I'm forever grateful to Beckie for all her time (and texts!)
