I removed the fabric center of the tray and repainted the wood frame in my favorite jadeite green color. Then I cut an assortment of painted yardsticks to fit into the wood frame, glued them and then nailed glacier points to hold them securely. TaDa! Perfect to hold an assortment of sewing notions or block pieces beside my sewing machine. I love it!

I like to think of this as my Grandma and Grandpa B's block because they used to raise all sorts of chickens, pheasants and other birds, and they grew a huge vegetable garden with lots of flowers (the snapdragons were my favorites!). So I added flowers and birds in this block for them.
And here is my Haystack block:
Stop back by in a few days and I'll share some more DIY upcycled projects I've been working on.
