Old Tools Wall Hooks

I’ve only been to a handful of yard sales this year, but I hit a gold mine at the very first one I went to in the spring  It was my idea of a gold mine anyway! There was a whole table full of old tools and I bought every one of them – and a tool box as well.  The more worn out a tool is, the more likely I am to get it cheap, and the less likely {Read More}

I’m a Proud Little Algae Eater

Standing in front of a great big aquarium at the pet store, a strange analogy popped into my head. Auction-goers are a lot like fish in an aquarium. Fish?      Yes, fish.  Let me explain. Aquariums usually have 3 types of fish in them, and auctions usually have 3 types of bidders.

Barn Door Bedroom Hooks

I rarely check Craigs List, but I got lucky one of the few times I did check it last year.  I’m not sure if this was a small barn door, or a heavy barn gate, but I was so glad it was still available when I called about it.  There were actually several to choose from, so I bought this one, plus another one that I used as a headboard in our shed-turned-guestroom. I thought I might use this one as a {Read More}

Vintage Style Storage in Antique Trunk

Normally when we travel, I can’t wait to hit every single antique store, thrift shop, and yard sale we drive by, but I was ridiculously well-behaved when we traveled to and from New Mexico last week.  I didn’t go to a single yard sale, and only stopped at a handful of antique stores, and from those stores, I only bought a few things. I seriously amazed myself at my self-discipline, because I found several really cool things, and had carried {Read More}

DIY Rustic Farmhouse Peg Rack

Suppose your family has a bajillion coats, hats and dog leashes (like mine)… and suppose those coats, hats and dog leashes have taken over every single wall hook in the house (like mine)… and suppose you have pretty things you want to hang up to display, because the aforementioned coats, hats and dog leashes are hogging all the space… What do you do? I’ll tell you what you do, you make your OWN place to hang your pretties… and you {Read More}

Salvaged Drawer Front Farm Sign

I really want to start spring cleaning, so I committed last week that I would either repurpose all the salvaged wood and supplies that have been cluttering up my entryway, or I would carry them out to my workshop.  I’m happy to report that I was able to use most of them in new projects, and very few needed to be returned to the workshop. I plan to limit the number of projects I work on at a time, so my house doesn’t get {Read More}

A Fresh New Batch of Farmhouse Signs

The problem with being a multi-tasker, is sometimes I have WAY too many projects going on at one time, and before I know it, they’ve overtaken my house. I’d be mortified if anyone dropped in unexpectedly right now, so I’m on a mission to get projects finished from all the pieces I’ve drug into my house – before the week is over. Anything that isn’t done before this week is up, is getting taken back out to my workshop.  I hate to {Read More}

Clementine Crate Makeover

I love projects that don’t cost me a cent, are easy, and end up being so pretty, I’m left wondering why I didn’t make them a long time ago.  This is one of those projects!  I’ve had this clementine crate for over 3 years now.  It was filled with fruit, which I used when I was styling my kitchen for the photos in my kitchen remodel post (seen HERE).  It was torture for my kids not to eat the fruit {Read More}
