Flower Shop Rusty Metal Farmhouse Bucket Makeover

Visiting a flower shop in the dead of winter is a bit like crashing a slumber party full of preteen girls when they first discover makeup. If a little color is a good thing, surely every shade on the color wheel must be better. We’ve all been there, right?

Vintage Bench Makeover & Boring Blog Post Titles

Vintage Bench Makeover. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz … I know that’s the most boring blog post title in the world, right? I kinda miss the good old days before I knew  it was important to include very specific words if you wanted Google to find your blog post. Basically, forget everything you ever learned in school about writing an interesting title, because Google won’t find it.  Google Smoogle What I really wanted to title today’s post is The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the {Read More}

If I asked you to name one piece of decor in your home that not only looks great, but is functional as well, what would your answer be?  #1 on my list has to be totes. They are hard-working and can be used in any room in the house, from the bathroom, to the kitchen, to the craft room – even the garage. You can buy vintage totes, upcycle a thrift store tote, or make them from scratch. My favorite {Read More}

Easy DIY Farmhouse Style Paint Finish

If you love the old farmhouse look, I’ve got a super easy way to achieve it with an easy DIY paint finish that is so simple to do… and it’s as pretty as supermodel Cindy Crawford’s mole! 🙂 It’s a great way to transform thrift store and yard sale finds that either look outdated, or have potential, but are a bit more battered than you’d like.

Cheese Dome Upcycle + Grade School Flashback

I’m a sucker for glass cloches, so a few weeks ago when I spotted this little cheese dome at a thrift store, I had to buy it.  How could I pass up such a cute little glass top and pretty wood base?  But there was one thing about it that I just didn’t like…

Tea Kettle on a Tea Kettle … What??

My mom has a cast iron tea kettle that I was admiring at her house, and have been hoping I might find a similar one, but something lucky happened, so I got one (sort of), but didn’t have to buy it. Clear as mud, right? Let me explain…

The Farmer in the Dell and a Farmhouse Cabinet

Do you remember the old children’s song, The Farmer in the Dell”, how the farmer takes a wife and the wife takes the child and the child takes the cow, and so on, until you get to the cheese, and the cheese stands alone? Well, for whatever totally random reason, writing this post reminded me of that poem, because one thing led to another and another and another.  At the end, you’ll see what “stands alone”, like the cheese did {Read More}

Has the “thrift” Gone Out of Thrift Stores?

I used to be a die-hard thrift store shopper, but over the last year or so, I’ve discovered that unless you are looking for used clothes, paperback books or ugly dishes, thrift stores are starting to hike up the prices on many things.  Normally you expect to pay more at thrift stores than you would at a garage sale, but he prices were still very reasonable and affordable, but isn’t always the case these days. For example I used to buy vintage {Read More}

Repurposed Drafting Tool Photo Display

Remember when the world wide web was still a novelty, and the joke getting forwarded through email said something to the effect of “you’ve reached the end of the internet?” Truthfully, I sorta freaked out the first time I got one of those emails.  I was just started to grasp just how amazing the internet was, and discovering that I could search for absolutely anything, and I’d find something on the web about it. I remember being so relieved to {Read More}

Milk and Cream Co. Sign on Stool and Chalkboard

It’s been more than 2 years ago since I made my first Milk and Cream Co. sign. Since I only had 1 antique window like that, I started making them on glass photo frames. And they sold, and they sold, and they sold, and to date I’ve made almost 50 more of them! Finally I realized that since other people love the design as much as I do, it was time to make make it available as a reusable stencil so anyone {Read More}
