Custom Signs and Vintage Decor On the Workbench & In the Shop

This is just a quick post to show you the new signs I’ve recently made that are in my shop now. I’m now taking special orders for custom signs in 22 different color options. First up is one that is the same design as the Dollar Tree pizza pan tray I made last month. That tray was painted white with the graphics in red. This sign is in a midnight sky blue color on a wood box frame. Every mom {Read More}

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. A few years ago, I brought home an antique sewing machine on a stand from an auction.  The stand was badly damaged and one of the drawers was missing, but I could see a lot of {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. After a while you stop noticing {Read More}

Jack O’ Lantern Halloween Treat Bucket from an Old Bucket

Jack-o’-lantern Halloween Treat Bucket I’ve avoided my workshop (AKA “junk shop” for so long I’d forgotten about some treasures hidden in the abyss.  This, my friends, is one of those hidden treasures.

Farmhouse Christmas Wreath from Toddler Overalls

DIY Farmhouse Christmas Wreath from Toddler Overalls Ever since I made my first overalls wall pocket more than four years ago, I’ve become hooked on making them.  Not only are they an adorable way to store things, but they make really cute alternative wreaths too.  I used a hot glue gun on my first one and the second one was sewn (seen here).  I wanted to make a farmhouse Christmas wreath, so this time I’m including the easy sewing tutorial.

Repurposed Antique Flour Bin Farmhouse Accent Table

Repurposed Antique Flour Bin Farmhouse Accent Table One of the things I miss most about my mother-in-law is how she would revert from English to Spanish whenever she used terms of endearment.  She referred to my sons as “Mijo” and my daughter as “Mija” (my son and my daughter), and when she felt sorry for one of them, usually when one of them was in trouble, she would say, “pobrecita” (poor dear). Last month I went to an elderly woman’s yard {Read More}

How to Make a Cabinet Door Magnet Board

DIY Cabinet Door Magnet Board See my question and be sure to comment with your great ideas at the end of this post! 🙂 A week or so ago I made my repurposed cabinet door sign for my kitchen, but I still had the other door for the cabinet left.  I didn’t want to put it in my workshop, because I knew it would become buried with hundreds of other things in there, so I figured I’d better make something {Read More}

More Farmhouse Style Tiered Stands

Farmhouse Style Tiered Stands Well, hello, tiered stands – I’ve missed you! It’s been a very long time since I’ve worked on any farmhouse style tiered stands. I love making them and have missed working on them, but I ran very low on my supply of bowls and spindles.  I finally built up enough supplies in my stash and my husband jumped in and helped me work on four new ones, since I’m still feeling a bit weak from when {Read More}
