Turn an old cabinet door and bread pan into a farmhouse style indoor kitchen herb garden and drying rack. PLUS a Roundup of Repurposed DIY Planter Ideas I don’t have an outdoor herb garden, other than some mint that has spread all over the side of my house, but I keep several pots on my kitchen window sill. I wanted to find a way to get them off the window sill to make cleaning it easier, and so was born {Read More}

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

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}

Simple Christmas Candle Centerpiece

This year the topic of discussion at our Thanksgiving table was all things wedding related. Wedding dates, wedding venues, and wedding colors. One of my sons is engaged, another son is planning to get engaged soon, and so is my niece. I’m overjoyed. Truly. But between bites of turkey and mashed potatoes, my mind was seeing dollar signs lined up like a slot machine. I knew I’d need to tighten my budget’s belt now for all those wedding expenses we will {Read More}

Wagon Wheel Farmhouse Christmas Candle Chandelier

I’ve got an upcycled wagon wheel project to show you today.  But first can I whine a little? Yesterday was one of those no good, very bad, everything-seemed-to-go-wrong days. It started out great. The sun was shining, the weather was warm, and I woke up raring to get to work …               … and then I slammed my finger in a door.

Fighting Over a Rusty Dustpan {a repurposed fall wreath}

I never, ever, ever in a million years thought my husband and I would argue about a rusty dustpan. Let me rephrase that. I never thought we’d ever argue about which one of us owns a rusty dustpan. He usually makes smart mouth comments about most of the rusty junk I’ve hauled home, so when I carried a totally rusted old dustpan into the kitchen and plopped it on the table to repurpose into an alternative fall wreath, I never dreamed it would {Read More}

Rusty Junk Coat Rack on a Repurposed Headboard

After I did some budget decorating for fall in my entryway last month, I didn’t expect to do anything else in that room … at least until Christmas.  But I was gifted a box full of rusty junk, and I couldn’t help myself. I had to find a fun way to use some of it, so a rusty junk repurposed headboard was born.  And my entryway was the perfect place to hang it.

Military Trunk Makeover and Word to the Wise

I’m gonna start by admitting that this military trunk was one of my dumbest purchases ever. WAY dumb. For starters, I bought it when I was in New Mexico back in June. Who buys a big wood trunk while traveling and would have to pack it in a vehicle full of people and luggage? Well, that would be me.  What was I thinking? I also had no need whatsoever of a military trunk.  None. The other reason it was a dumb purchase is {Read More}

Sunflowers in Junk to Cheer Me Up

Well, my weekend plans took a nosedive, but sunflowers came to my rescue. I was feeling kind of down in the dumps, because my daughter and I had planned to go camping,  and I was looking forward to stepping away from all my projects and unplugging from the computer. But rain was predicted, so I had to find a new plan.
