Farmhouse Mini Towel Ladder Using Wood Lattice Trellis

For a long time I’ve wanted a farmhouse mini towel ladder, and they seemed fairly simple to make. But I just never got around to it. I even almost bought this one or this one on Etsy. Both were under $20, but I still didn’t get one. Then one day I was scouting Facebook Marketplace and saw someone selling five wood lattice trellises. I figured if the price was low enough, I could use them in various spots in my {Read More}

St. Charles Missouri Day Trip

St. Charles Missouri Day Trip Anyone else doing a staycation this year? My husband started a new job, so no traveling for us this summer, other than  a day trip here and there, which is fine.  I really need to just relax and refocus anyway. Guess I’m long overdue to just kick back for a spell. My daughter and I started doing day trips last month. We went to the  Saint Louis Zoo.  We plan to go back and see {Read More}

Waste Not Wednesday: Wood Riser & Bird Feeder + A Question

DIY Wood Riser & Bird Feeder: Waste Not Wednesday  I  hoard wood scraps. There, I said it. It might be a sickness. 🙂 At least I’m in good company because my husband does too. My husband built some wood stairs for a door in our bedroom that leads outside. There were a few pieces of thick wood left over. Hating to see it used for firewood, I put on my thinking cap to find something useful to do with it. {Read More}

Farmhouse Wood Tray Thrift Store Makeover

Farmhouse Wood Tray Thrift Store Makeover Several months ago, I shared some thrift store finds and one of them was this wood tray. For the most part it was in good condition.  Just scuffed up and dirty. The wood just wasn’t my style.  Not bad, but just too dark for the farmhouse style I love. So it was definitely going to get a makeover. Let me show you what I did. I wiped off the dust and used my spray {Read More}

Pallet Frame Farmhouse Chalkboard

Pallet Frame Farmhouse Chalkboard Several years ago, I made a pallet wood frame chalkboard. Tutorial HERE. It was mainly used to put flowers in jar I had attached. The chalkboard and wood frame were intentionally left rough when I originally made it. It wasn’t intended to be used as a chalkboard. But I wanted to give it a makeover like you’d see in an old grocery store. This time, I wanted it as smooth as possible. The frame was sanded {Read More}
