Nate Burkes And The Real Housewives-- Help You With Your Wedding

Can Nate Burkes help you with your wedding? Well he hasn't started Nate Burkes Wedding yet, but as I watched his show today I realized how many of his projects you could easily adapt to DIY wedding projects.  Or projects his guests have done that would be fabulous for your wedding day.  Today Jess and Monica, the creative minds behind the website "The Real Housewives of Bucks County" were on his show today.  (Love it when I see someone local featured on a national show)

Several of their projects wowed me, but my favorite was made of some reclaimed barnwood art.  (Love people who repurpose!). But I digress. Jess and Monica took some real barnwood from a barn in Pennsylvania and turned it into a beautiful piece of hand painted artwork. After they painted the design on the wood they sealed it with some polyurethane.  Each piece is as different as the wood it's on and the design painted on it.  You can go to their web site and read their tutorial or head to their Etsy Shop called RealHousewivesofBC. (good news! permission to post their photo (see above), but if you want to see the rest of their creative projects be sure to visit their Etsy store above.)
