I don’t do much Valentine decorating, but today I’m sharing not one, not two, not even three, but four easy DIY Valentine Decor projects! I’m participating in a blog hop with several other creative bloggers.  Our theme this month is Valentine’s Day.

Spring Wreath Farmhouse Frame DIY

In this post: A Spring Wreath Farmhouse Frame Easily create this Spring Wreath Farmhouse Frame using inexpensive supplies.  It’s rustic, yet elegant, and the neutral color looks beautiful year-round. I used to make a lot of book page canvas wall art that I sold in my Etsy shop and I still had several 16″ x 20″ stretched canvases left over.  Once the canvas is removed, you have an inexpensive frame to use.  I have a few that I had already removed the canvas {Read More}

Hello friends!  I hope your January has been a good one so far.  I can’t believe February is just around the corner. Valentine ideas are in full swing and we are featuring a few this week.  Here are our wonderful features from last week.

Sewing Machine Table Repurposed Magnetic Message Board

This is on old project that I made and posted several years ago.  The photos had disappeared when I did an update, so I reloaded them and decided to share it again since I know many may not have seen it the first time.

Here are the sections of the magazine that my projects were featured in. Below are my large barn quilt block stencils featured on wood wall decor.  You can see how I made them HERE. {Read More}

Farmhouse Metal Kitchen Wall Bins

In this post: Farmhouse Metal Kitchen Wall Bins I’ve had these  farmhouse wall bins hanging in my living room for four years seen HERE. We replaced our thermostat with a Nest thermostat last year leaving screw holes and chunk out of the wallpaper. This year we’ll cover the Bible Page Wallpaper in the living room with tongue and groove wood like we have in the kitchen and bathroom so the wall bins needed to come down.

Talk of the Town #157

Can we all agree that winter stinks? 🙂 If it weren’t for Christmas, I would happily skip this season altogether. We got dumped on with about 10″ of snow last weekend.  It was beautiful, but on top all that, my husband, son, and I have been sick.  BLAH!

Home Key Hook | Home Is Where You Hang Your Keys

In this post: A Home Key Hook because Home Is Where You Hang Your Keys A few months ago, my husband asked if I would make a key hook.  That was a very reasonable request since he hangs his keys with the measuring spoons and I go on a goose chase to find where I put mine. I was in the midst of my 15 Days of Chalking projects, so I didn’t have time to do it just then.  But then {Read More}
