Ornament Palooza | Christmas in High Gear

Halloween 2016 is down in the books, Thanksgiving is up next, and Christmas will be here before you know it.  So I thought we could look back at each ornament made by 31 different bloggers, including myself in October. I have lots of Christmas projects and decor planned, so I’ve got to get busy working on them all.  I plan to share them throughout November, so you have plenty of time to make any that inspire you. This is my {Read More}

Wagon Wheel Farmhouse Christmas Candle Chandelier

I’ve got an upcycled wagon wheel project to show you today.  But first can I whine a little? Yesterday was one of those no good, very bad, everything-seemed-to-go-wrong days. It started out great. The sun was shining, the weather was warm, and I woke up raring to get to work …               … and then I slammed my finger in a door.

Weekending: 100 Screw Holes Later and Fall Window Box Update

I did something really dumb, and now I have to pay for it. If you do the crime, you must do the time, as they say. Believe me, I regret my crime and wish I had been smarter. My crime?  It was putting screw holes into the wood walls in my kitchen. Not just a few holes.  I made loads of them. Every time I showed you a photo like this … or this … or this … I put more holes {Read More}

Fighting Over a Rusty Dustpan {a repurposed fall wreath}

I never, ever, ever in a million years thought my husband and I would argue about a rusty dustpan. Let me rephrase that. I never thought we’d ever argue about which one of us owns a rusty dustpan. He usually makes smart mouth comments about most of the rusty junk I’ve hauled home, so when I carried a totally rusted old dustpan into the kitchen and plopped it on the table to repurpose into an alternative fall wreath, I never dreamed it would {Read More}

Weekending | Room Reset and a Rusty Pitchfork

This week has been a Longgggg one. Seriously. My teenage son got his first real job, which is a huge “hip hurray,” but he doesn’t have his driver’s license yet.  So you know what that means?

Barn Wood Candle {Easy Tin Can Project}

Every time I go on a road trip, I pass so many old barns that are falling down, and it kills me to see all that amazing barn wood just rotting away, especially since I could think of hundreds of projects to use it on. Well, I was in the craft store a few days ago and found some amazing scrapbook paper made to look like old barn wood. … Had to have it!

I had to find a fun way to use some of it, so a rusty junk repurposed headboard was born.  And my entryway was the perfect place to hang it.
