How Not to Give a Folding Chair a Makeover

I woke up yesterday morning on a mission. I was going to march straight out to my workshop, grab the first piece of junk I laid eyes on, and do something amazing with it. I wouldn’t look at Facebook or check my email first. Junk first – Facebook later. That WAS the plan…

Door Salvage Mercantile Sign

I don’t even remember where I got this door panel, but I discovered it one day out in my workshop, and I knew I wanted to turn it into a sign. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to put on it, so I went searching for inspiration for long, large signs, and found several ideas I loved, like this Meat Market sign via Country Living (but seriously, isn’t the whole room incredible?!) And I’ve always loved this Tourists sign that {Read More}

The Great Outdoors + Arrows Stencil Designs!

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. I recruited my niece and nephew to assist me, and gave them a {Read More}

The Sexiest Man Alive and a North Pole Sign

When riding in the car with a teenager, conversations can be all over the map.  One minute my son will be talking about a video game, the next minute we’re discussing the Jackson 5, because we heard them on an oldies radio station. Today, our conversation swerved toward People’s “Sexiest Man Alive”. #WeirdConversationToHaveWithTeenageSon

Make a Santa Inspired Pallet Wood Christmas Tray

Mr. Claus has been a wee bit jealous that I’ve made a lot of projects dedicated to his wife, so it was time to give give the jolly old guy some attention too, with a pallet wood Christmas tray.  I wouldn’t want to get on his naughty list!

DIY Vintage Railroad Sign

Do you recall my ordeal last year getting our yearly family photos taken – the ones that required my family and I to jump on and off of railroad tracks, fake smile and give me grief? Well, as much as I would have loved to replay that scenario again this year – I totally forgot!  I usually shoot our family photos right before one of my college kids returns to school, but I didn’t even think about it until we {Read More}

Autumn Moments Coat Rack Sign

It’s still a little over a month before Autumn officially arrives, but we took our middle son back to his college over the weekend, and that means that summer is basically over for my family and we’ll get back to our usual schedules and work now.  I’m sad summer is coming to an end, but I do love autumn. It’s a season so rich with wonderful smells, beautiful sights and yummy things to eat. When you think of autumn, what images immediately {Read More}
