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}

Pallet Wood Bathtub Table

I’m a die-hard bathtub soaker, and always have been.  If I had to guess, I’d say that at least 75% of my blog posts have been written while soaking in my bathtub.  It’s the one place in the house where I don’t get distracted by people, the tv, or the phone, so I can concentrate, and relax at the same time. A bathtub table is a must for me, and I’ve had several of them over the years.  Both were made my {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}

Pretty Kitties, a Crate Disguise, and a $100 Visa Card Giveaway

Our two cats have a knack for photo bombing when I’m taking pictures for the blog or my Etsy shop.  Last week, I was working on a project, and I turned around to grab my camera off the counter behind me.  By the time I turned back around, there was already a cat making herself comfy right next to my project.  They do this constantly! While I officially introduce them to you today, I’m also going to talk about another kind of bombing {Read More}

My Dream Barn Door … in mini version

I’m not a super “wanty” person (is that a word?) but I want a barn door in my house     …and I want one bad. What does it matter that we really don’t have any space to put one? I’m still holding out the hope that somehow I can talk my husband into making one. I’ll figure out the little details, like where we’d install it … later. While I patiently wait for him to agree with me that we {Read More}

Sweet and Simple Wood Scrap Wall Hook

During the summer, when I taught a “junk art” class at church summer camp, I taught the kids how to make a Nail Head Initial Art (seen here).  I pre-cut the wood pieces before class, and the kids stained the wood, and did the nail art.    A few days ago, I discovered a piece of that wood that I used as a sample.  Since it was already stained, I figured I should make a quick project with it, rather than add it {Read More}

DIY Lavender sign

Ever since I started dreaming of the future lavender harvest I hope to have, thoughts of lavender keep creeping into my mind, so I had to do something lavenderish (spell check says that isn’t a word – it should be!)  I’m going to think positive that I’ll have lots of lovely lavender soon, but in the meantime, I made a new lavender sign for my obsession. I grabbed an old board in my stash, and put a light coat of light {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}

Salvaged Wood Organization Station

I used to be super duper organized when it came to mundane tasks…like paying bills, meal planning, and Christmas and grocery shopping. Used.  To.  Be. ~ On Dec. 26th every year, I started my new Christmas shopping list, so whenever the kids mentioned something they wanted, I added it to the list, and scouted for bargains throughout the year.  When I purchased something on the list, I changed the typed item into bold print, so I knew I had purchased {Read More}
