Laundry Room Sign Stenciled on Salvaged Wood Shelf

Well, hello 2017.  It’s so nice to meet you! If you’ve followed Knick of Time during the last year, you know that 2016 was a kinda’ rotten year for our family.  So I hope the door smacked it in the rear on its way out! 🙂 Between losing my mother-in-law in January, losing my dad in March, and my mom getting diagnosed with cancer in the midst of all that, getting inspired to work on projects was hard to do.

Make a Hanging Rustic Storage Crate, or Three!

Make Hanging Rustic Storage Crate The farmers have been out getting their fields ready for planting in my neck of the woods, and the other day I was thinking about a talk I had with my dad just a few days before he passed away. He was becoming increasingly confused, but one morning he was fairly alert, and I wanted to engage him as much as I could while it lasted.
