Thank you! I fell into this totally by accident - I asked my friend's brother to cut me some slices if wood from a tree he was cutting up. I painted them for Christmas ornaments, and they were a hit at the craft consignment store.


Then he showed up one day with the planks and I was clueless as to what to do with them. I looked at things on Pinterest, and then these were born!

Thank you! When I got those planks I had no idea what to do with them. I looked through Pinterest, got an idea, and went with it!
