British Inspired Teen Bedroom Makeover

Whenever I’m giving a room a makeover, I’m always flying by the seat of my pants, with only a general idea of the look I’m going for.  I figure it out as I go, and as I root through my house and workshop to see what I have to work with, but this time it was a doozy. You see, a few weeks ago, I decided to give our bedroom a makeover.  We haven’t done a single thing to it, since {Read More}

Guest Cottage Room Reveal {in an Old Farmhouse Shed}

It’s finally finished!  We started this project in July of last year, and I was overly optimistic, and thought my new guest cottage room / photo studio would be done by the end of September.  Ha!  Well, at least it was completed before the end of September this year.  It was worth the wait though, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. To give you an idea of the work that went into this room, you have to {Read More}

Salvaged Wood Display Shelf

Yawn…I must be getting old, because I used to work on projects until the wee hours of the morning, but lately I can barely keep my eyes open until 10.  I’m hoping once the daylight starts lasting longer, I’ll have more energy, because I am a night owl by nature, and can’t seem to accomplish much lately.  That has absolutely nothing to do with today’s post, it just explains to you why if you notice me posting less frequently, it’s because {Read More}

The Making of an Antique Cupboard

Before I say anything else about today’s post, I want to thank to my husband.  Without him, I wouldn’t be sharing what I’m sharing with you today.  He helps me bring my plans and visions to reality and I truly couldn’t do it without him.  I don’t say it often enough, but I appreciate not only all the work he does for me, but his willingness to even tackle the projects I throw at him at all.  I really believe there {Read More}

A Little More Milk & Cream

Lest you think I finally got bored of using the Milk and Cream Co. image on things…I haven’t.  I was just waiting for the right piece to use it on. When I hung my new/repurposed Primitive Wall Cupboard in my kitchen, I hung it where this paper towel holder/shelf previously had been.  It seemed perfect for the Milk & Cream graphic. I wanted to do it as a transfer, rather than using a stencil, so that the shadow border would {Read More}

DIY Primitive Cabinet from a Repurposed Wooden Crate and Frame

I love it when you make something and it turns out exactly as you envisioned it.  I’ve been wanting to make a primitive style wall cupboard for awhile.  I wanted something that I could openly display things inside, and wanted to use metal mesh I already had on hand inside the door. I didn’t want to buy new wood to do it.  I knew it would cost less to wait until I came across something old and cheap and would {Read More}

Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel – A Room with a View

I didn’t plan to show you my farmhouse kitchen remodel until Friday, because I had a lot of photos to go through before posting about it, but my mom is going on a camping trip today and she wasn’t too happy when she found out she wouldn’t get to see my kitchen until she got home late Sunday night. I stayed up until the wee hours this morning finishing this post for you, Mom – I hope you like it {Read More}

When Plan “A” Fails

I just finished this open cupboard. It looked really old to start with. I mean really old.  I showed it to you a few days ago, looking like this. Tons of chippy paint, tons of bugs and dirt and tons of scars. I totally loved the pumpkin orange paint, and wanted to just clean it up, and distress it a little more, but two sides of it weren’t painted (which I didn’t even notice until I got it home), so {Read More}
