Turn Old Junk into Fabulous Farmhouse Decor

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5

The end of the year is a time of reflection, and while digging through the mountain of junk in my workshop earlier this week, I started reflecting on some of my favorite farmhouse projects that I’ve made out of castoffs that others call junk. This isn’t an exhaustive list, but I’ve broken it down into projects made with three types of junk that I love to work with. METAL JUNK

Farm Fresh Milk New Stencil Design

Would you think I’m a grouch if I said I’ll be a bit relieved when Christmas is over and things get back to normal (or as normal as things ever get in my house)? I love Christmas.  I really and truly do. I’ve tried to wish every bell ringer and cashier I see a “Merry Christmas,” I baked (and ate) a ton of chocolate kiss cookies rolled in sugar sprinkles, I put fresh evergreens in every nook and cranny in my house, and {Read More}

Evergreen & Antiques Free Christmas Decorating

Last year I bought a beautiful evergreen garland to hang in our entryway. I draped it around the doorway between the entryway and kitchen, and walking under it reminded me of walking through the field of pine trees my dad planted at my childhood home.  The garland had that amazing freshcut evergreen aroma; it looked beautiful and I absolutely loved it … … for about two days.

Glowing Mason Jar Luminaries DIY Christmas Tote

When I was a little girl, one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time was to lie underneath the Christmas tree and stare up at the glowing colored lights. Nine times out of ten, I’d drift off to sleep lying there, while visions of kiss cookies and Christmas presents danced in my head. I’m too big to get under the tree now, so I came up with two easier ways to enjoy Christmas lights around the house. Remember {Read More}

Christmas Stockings Old Wooden Ladder Hanger

I must be listening to the wrong radio stations, because I’ve barely heard any Christmas music this week. Hello …      It is December, right? I thought it would be fun to have our own family Christmas family sing-along. It sounded like great fun to me so I led off singing “We Need a Little Christmas,” but when I got to the “candles in the window and carols at the spinet” part, I looked around and realized my family had {Read More}
