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

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.

Christmas Stockings Old Wooden Ladder Hanger

Well, if our new little cat was a child, she’d be THAT child. Don’t let looks deceive you. She looks sweet now, but you don’t know what she’s put me through today. I was trying to {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}

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.
