How to Make a Rustic Farmhouse Wooden Drawer Centerpiece Tray Out of Pallet Wood

Over my years of being a junker, yard saler, and flea market shopper, a lot of old wooden drawers have passed through my house.  Each one was different, but I loved them all. There was the big wooden drawer that I turned into a farmhouse cabinet. There were the drawers that I turned into storage shelves for craft supplies. And the really messed up drawers that got repurposed into fabulous wall bins. And the one I turned into a shelf {Read More}

Walking On Sunshine Spring Cleaning

My oldest son’s fiance is coming to visit this weekend, so I needed to dig in and get started on my spring cleaning. I don’t deep clean often enough, but company is a great motivator!

Farmhouse Style DIY Decor Made with Salvaged Wood

A farmhouse wooden swing shelf, plus a collection of 13 DIY decor projects all made from salvaged wood. A few years ago, I made an Old-Fashioned Swing out of salvaged wood. On cool summer mornings when the birds are chirping, it’s the most relaxing thing in the world to pretend I’m a kid again, without a care in the world, and swing to my heart’s content. PIN IT! I looked out my front door at it a few days ago, and {Read More}

How to Build a Farmhouse Rustic Handled Wooden Crate from Pallet Wood

My husband recently restocked our supply of pallets, and I knew exactly what I wanted to make with one of them – a rustic handled wooden crate!

New Farmhouse Kitchen Decor and Vintage Finds in the Shop

When I first started blogging, my main occupation was a “picker.” Back then, I attended at least one auction every week, and during the summer months I often went to several each week. It wasn’t uncommon for me to fill up the back of our pickup truck from just one auction with vintage pieces that I’d bring home to clean up and sell or salvaged junk that I’d repurpose into something new and sell through my online shop. Things changed {Read More}

How to Make Simple Farmhouse Decorative Pillows, a Few Tips & a New Video

In my opinion, some words should be eliminated from the English language.  “Throw pillows” is one of them, and only “decorative pillows” should be allowed. Let’s think about it.  The word decorative is an adjective.  It’s a harmless adjective that describes things. But the word throw?  That’s a verb.      And my family takes their verbs seriously.

Spring Flowers Apothecary Jars with Refreshed Printable Labels

Buying myself a bouquet of spring flowers is right up there with getting my nails done or treating myself to lunch. As the L’Oreal commercial says, I buy them, “because I’m worth it.” 🙂 Flowers make me happy.  They look beautiful and they smell great. I never buy bouquets that come in the basic glass jars.  There are far too many of them sitting on thrift store shelves already (but they make great toilet brush holders). Instead, I like to make {Read More}

It should be no surprise that I adore farmhouse blogs. I have one of my own, and I follow many others that I love and admire. Today I thought I’d share some of my favorite farmhouse pinners on Pinterest. I didn’t choose any big business pinners, like Country Living or Joanna Gaines, although I love both. Instead I focused on bloggers who started out just like me … with a love for farmhouse style who wanted to bring that style {Read More}

Quick Fixer Upper Project | Lazy Susan Gets a Farmhouse Style Feed Sack Makeover

I was cruising down the road, listening to the oldies station when Barbara Mandrell came on singing “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool.” If I had a personal theme song, that would be it.

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Make a Farmhouse Barn Quilt Block Sign with Step-by-Step Tutorial

Do you remember when I wanted a barn quilt, but I soaked in my bathtub while my son drew all the painting lines for me? And do you remember the time I had to patch 100 screw holes in my kitchen because I had drilled so many screws into the walls? Both of those stories illustrate something I’m embarrassed to admit …      I can be kind of lazy. But sometimes laziness pays off when I figure out an easier way {Read More}
