Good Pickin’s!

My husband and I went to a neighborhood garage sale over the weekend and I managed to fill the back of my vehicle in a little over an hour.  People were out in droves, but fortunately, most people weren’t looking for the kind of things I had my eye out for. I’m always looking for porcelain stuff, and rusty stuff, industrial stuff,  and sitting stuff, chippy, sweet stuff old wood and wheels stuff, Army green stuff, salvage stuff, zinc stuff, {Read More}

My Boy – Senior Graduation Photos

I apologize in advance for this post.  If you are sick of seeing photos of my kids, I’m going to subject with more of them today.  My middle son is graduating from our homeschool, and being the thrifty mom that I am, I always take their senior photos.  I am not a portrait photographer at all (or any real photographer at all), but we both were really happy with some of the shots we got, and with so many pretty {Read More}

Coat Racks, Greeting Cards & Playing with Picmonkey…one thing leads to another

This week I’ve been busy cleaning and organizing my workshop, which had become a mammoth disaster during the winter.  The funny thing about cleaning my workshop, is I kept getting sidetracked when I came across things I wanted to work on.  I think I need a little fun in between the drudgery of cleaning to keep me motivated.  Anyway, I came across a super old piece of pine baseboard that had  wonderfully aged pale buttercream-colored paint on it.  Three coat {Read More}

Homemade Chalk Style Paint Pie Safe

Last year we bought an old RV.  It needs some work to get it running well, but we hope to do a little traveling in it.  I’m also hoping to make it look pretty – as if I need another remodeling project. Inside the RV was this little pine cabinet.  It was cute, but bland.  It reminds me of a pie safe. I whipped up a batch of homemade chalk style paint.  I used turquoise on the outside and bright {Read More}

Masculine Milk Paint Makeover

For the last several months, I’ve been on the lookout for an old dresser, desk, or cabinet, or anything similar that is about hip high.  Don’t ask me why I didn’t take a careful look around my own home, because I had the very thing I needed already – it was just buried under other junk in my outbuilding.  Let that be a lesson to me, to shop my own shed first, before shopping elsewhere. I bought this old desk {Read More}
