Ranger U

I'm applying to Ranger U again this year. I am VERY excited and hope I am selected! You guys know what a Tim fan I am and today's post is dedicated to showing a representative sample of my work for my application.

Tim, if you're viewing this, thanks for considering me and I'd love to learn from you and Claudine & Suze in June. My peeps here in the Rocky Mountains hope so, too; they are eager to come to classes and play with all things Ranger!

Ribbon Cabinet

I bought this tall narrow piece at a flea market. I'm not sure what its original purpose was, but I thought it was perfect to use as a cabinet to display ribbon spools in the store! I painted it black and distressed the edges.

It was a plain pine piece with 10 wooden drawer pulls. I took off the knobs and replaced them with 10 different drawer pulls. It gives it a really fun, whimsical look.

Here's the cabinet open with a spool of ribbon inside. I can't wait to get it in the store and fill it with lots of colorful ribbon!
