Get the Look of Reclaimed Barn Wood in Minutes | Weathered Wood Finish Product Review

Magnetic Farmhouse Style Tin Can Planters

Magnetic Farmhouse Style Tin Can Planters While we were staying at my mom’s house for my niece’s wedding a few weeks ago, I just “happened” to notice something that caught my eye on her pantry shelves.  Stuck between cans of green beans and tomato sauce were two pairs of eyes that were calling out to me.

How to Age Gracefully (Using Antiquing Wax on Thrift Store Finds)
