How to Make a Cabinet Door Magnet Board

DIY Cabinet Door Magnet Board See my question and be sure to comment with your great ideas at the end of this post! 🙂 A week or so ago I made my repurposed cabinet door sign for my kitchen, but I still had the other door for the cabinet left.  I didn’t want to put it in my workshop, because I knew it would become buried with hundreds of other things in there, so I figured I’d better make something {Read More}

How to Make an Old Farmhouse Sign On New Wood

How to Make an Old Farmhouse Sign on New Wood I forgot to ask the gal who took care of our animals while we were on vacation to water our flowers.  The ones planted in the ground held up basically fine, but the flowers in hanging planters didn’t fair so well. 🙁 Since the flowers in my guest house window box were some that died and I didn’t want to replant them until fall,

Handmade United States Patriotic Decor | Creative Ideas from Sea to Shining Sea!

Handmade United States Patriotic Decor There are thousands of wonderful things about this time of year, but one of my favorites is fireflies.  I remember running around in our yard, filling up an empty mayonnaise jar until the jar glowed like a miniature night sky.

Turn Old Junk into Fabulous Farmhouse Decor

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

Magnolia Market Style Farmhouse Serving Plank

As much as I’d love to visit  Magnolia Market, I don’t see that happening in the near future, but I did some online “window  shopping” and spotted a few things I love. One of them is their Farmhouse Serving Plank. I love that it can be used to serve food, but can also be used as a table centerpiece. It’s actually similar to the rustic table centerpiece I made  and used in the autumn (seen here) and at Christmas (seen {Read More}

Reclaimed Wood for My Spring Entryway

Whenever possible, I always choose reclaimed wood over brand new wood, because I want the aged and weathered look, so when given the chance to get some reclaimed wood for free – you can bet I’ll take it! Remember that chippy weathered photo backdrop I shared a few weeks ago?  Well, that photo was the top of my mom’s old picnic table, and she told me I could keep it (yippee!!), so my husband took it all apart and we transported {Read More}

Ushering in Autumn Mantel and Wood Slice Letters

Did you know that autumn, winter, spring and summer all have 1 thing in common, aside from being seasons?  Can you guess what it is? They all have 6 letters in them! So, who cares, right? Wrong! You can get double duty out of the project I’m sharing today, because I made some wood slice letters to display as part of my autumn mantel decor, and since wood slices have 2 sides, you can put the letters for one season {Read More}

Farmhouse Friday #15 – Salvaged Wood Projects

Ohhhh… salvaged wood… Love songs should be written about you, stars should be named after you, tools should fight over the chance to be used on you,  Farmhouse Friday themes should be chosen in your honor … …Oh wait, that IS this week’s theme! 🙂 Whether it came from a barn, pallets or picket fences, we LOVE salvaged wood, don’t we? (you ARE shaking your head, “yes” right?) It has patina that is truly swoon-worthy, and its uses are limitless, so let’s take a look at {Read More}

Bugs, Grease, and an Antique Cutting Board

Old barns have the best stuff  in them, and there was a fair amount of stuff  in our barn when we bought our house. At first glance,  you wouldn’t have thought there was anything really worth keeping, but that’s what makes a barn a good mine – you have to dig for the good stuff, and you have to be willing to look beyond layers of dirt and, creepy crawlies, and spider webs. One of the things we uncovered was an old wooden crate. {Read More}
