Repurpose Design Series- Barn Wood Cross

  Welcome to another Repurpose Design Series Reveal Day! DSC_0979 I decided not to purchase anything at all for this week’s transformation. So, I headed to the barn and found some reclaimed wood that we got from an old building on family land. DSC_0964 My husband helped me turn it into a cross. DSC_0965 I painted it in Annie Sloan pure white and distressed it with fine sand paper. DSC_0967 To add a little interest, I added twine around the middle. DSC_0968 It looks nice hanging on the wall. DSC_0970 I just left the twine long in the back to make a loop to hang it from. DSC_0975 As a variation, I decided to hang some lemon thyme from the cross. DSC_0976 Oh the possibilities with reclaimed barn wood! What did you transform for $20 or less this week? All of the entries are amazing so far!

    I love this. I liked the chippy original paint too. It looks lovely on your wall.

    I used to make crosses like this out Of driftwood i found on the beach and would tie the twine leaving it long in back for hanging also. That was 20 yrs ago. I need to make them again.
