Easy DIY Signs and a Painting Tip

Easy DIY Signs and Pennant Banner Ideas I love living in the country, but sometimes it gets kind of lonely. Since my husband was gone all week, rather than just binge-watch shows on Netflix or talk to our dog, I decided to do something more constructive.

Farmhouse Christmas Tree Farm Repurposed Drawer

How to Create Farmhouse Christmas Decor from an Old Drawer After finishing the repurposed Christmas cabinet door, I moved on to another repurposing project. This time, a drawer for Christmas. I’ve been busy clearing out unused stuff, donating a lot and repurposing or upcycling what I can. It came from one of these small sets of drawers that I was given six years ago.  I added glass knobs to them and had one in my guest room. The other one {Read More}

Farmhouse Christmas Cabinet Door Sign

Rustic Farmhouse Christmas Cabinet Door Sign I know, it’s insanely early to be thinking about Christmas. But craft stores are already discounting fall items and bringing in Christmas decor, so that tells me I need to start stocking my Etsy shop with Christmas items too.  That’s why you will be seeing Christmas projects popping up here on the blog.

Fall Farmhouse Pumpkin Patch Pallet Box

Make your own rustic and adorable Fall Farmhouse Pumpkin Patch Pallet Box to use as a centerpiece, coffee table decor, or for a party decoration!   Now that we’re over halfway through August, it’s a good time to start removing summer decor and switching it out for some fall farmhouse decor.

Cheese Cloche Upcycled Into Mini Pumpkin Patch

There are certain things that I always find at thrift stores.  Nearly every time I go, I find a cheese cloche or dome tray. What do you call them? After pondering what to do with one I found several months ago, I finally knew what I would do with it. A centerpiece for fall or winter. And I set out to do just that!

Small Side Table Upcyled In Black and White Buffalo Check

Small Side Table Upcyled in Black and White Buffalo Check Do you ever buy furniture at thrift stores or yard sales?  I don’t often, but when I found  a pair of these small side tables at a thrift store for $15 for the set, I couldn’t pass them up.

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}
