Make Your Own 'Something Blue' Louboutin's Wedding Shoes :)

Turn Little Red Wagons Into This Cool Bar Cart :)

Beautifully Designed By David Hillegas
Remove wheels and axles from three wagons of roughly the same size. For the bottom shelf, attach galvanized floor flanges on the inside four corners with nuts and bolts. Mount casters to underside. For the middle shelf, attach two floor flanges (one on the inside, one on the bottom) in all four corners with nuts and bolts. For the top shelf, attach galvanized floor flanges on the bottom four corners with nuts and bolts. Next, use screws and Liquid Nails to adhere wooden dowels (ours were cut to one-foot lengths) to center of the flanges to build one unified structure. (For additional support, attach wire cross braces between the shelves.)

Turn A Rock Into A Cute House For Your Front Yard Or Garden :)


Rocks are like fingerprints–no two are exactly alike–which makes them a great art base. Patty Donathan, a prolific rock painter, claims the most ideal rocks have been weathered well and tumbled and rounded by a water source like a river, creek, lake or ocean. Look for rocks on beaches, dry lake or river beds. However, always be aware of your surroundings. Taking rocks and stones from state and national parks is forbidden. Don’t let this be a deterrent to rock painting as a whole. Rocks are everywhere, and looking for them is half the fun. If the rocks are dirty, clean them with warm soapy water. Scrub them lightly with an old toothbrush, rinse them in cool water and pat them dry with an old towel.


Paint with inexpensive brushes. Depending upon the hardness or softness of the rock, the surface will wear down a brush quickly, making expensive brushes a waste. Look for brushes that are durable and have long bristles that hold a lot of paint. Consider buying a stiff brush with a wood handle. They are generally inexpensive and work well when painting on rock.

Selecting paint

Acrylic paints have improved through the years, and finding quality paint is not as difficult as it was in years past. According to Lin Wellford, a professional rock painter, if the plan is to showcase your art outdoors, use an acrylic patio paint. Patio paints are formulated specifically to weather well in the elements and are designed for porous surfaces like rock, clay pots and stepping stones. If you plan to display your art inside, any acrylic paint will work. The consistency of the paint should be neither too thick nor too thin. Add small amounts of water to thick paint until it reaches a good painting consistency. Practice painting thin lines on scrap paper or newspaper to check your paint’s texture and thickness.


There are a multitude of sealers to choose from. Choosing the most effective acrylic sealer will ensure the art piece lasts a lifetime. The use of an acrylic spray gloss enriches colors and provides satisfactory protection if kept indoors. Choose a spar urethane sealer if the finished rock painting will be displayed outdoors. Although spar urethane is used primarily for wood, it also works well as an outdoor paint protector for rock paintings. Spar resists cracking, peeling and yellowing and protects against water, sun damage and salt air.
