Hey guys! So, I’m currently in Atlanta right now for the Haven Conference. I’m so excited to be here with GMC & I’m honored to be speaking on Instagram. You know how much I love Instagram & so I’m excited to share my passion for it here at the blogging conference. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to get all the updates on the conference. Ok. On to today’s post. Once in a while Mr. LMB will go out in the garage & create something amazing. I was in the house cleaning the other day & he called me outside to look at something. He had taken some croquet mallets that I had found while out junkin’ & he turned them into an amazing piece of art. Whenever I see his creative side come out it make me fall in love with him all over again. I took some photos of the croquet mallet art in our living room quickly before I jumped on the plane just to show you guys. He didn’t take any progress photos, but sometimes when creating you don’t want to stop to take any pictures. The sun was setting in our house so the lighting wasn’t that great, but here is how it turned out..
He stapled some boards together that were leftover from our dining room table [tutorial on that coming soon!} He then stenciled words on the pallet [W M Croquet Club 1934] Just knowing what he wrote on their is so fun to see inside his brain & how he thinks. He then put the croquet mallets on the boards using wire. That’s it. & now some croquet mallets that were missing the other part of the croquet set now have a new purpose.
This croquet mallet art would look so great in summer decor, on a mantel, in a playroom, by a pool, on a porch, basically anywhere. After just editing the photos just now I kind of wish I had gotten better ones of it, but I think you get the idea. Let me know what you think of the art in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram. xx
