Magnolia Market Style Farmhouse Serving Plank

As much as I’d love to visit  Magnolia Market, I don’t see that happening in the near future, but I did some online “window  shopping” and spotted a few things I love. One of them is their Farmhouse Serving Plank. I love that it can be used to serve food, but can also be used as a table centerpiece. It’s actually similar to the rustic table centerpiece I made  and used in the autumn (seen here) and at Christmas (seen {Read More}

Reclaimed Wood for My Spring Entryway

Whenever possible, I always choose reclaimed wood over brand new wood, because I want the aged and weathered look, so when given the chance to get some reclaimed wood for free – you can bet I’ll take it! Remember that chippy weathered photo backdrop I shared a few weeks ago?  Well, that photo was the top of my mom’s old picnic table, and she told me I could keep it (yippee!!), so my husband took it all apart and we transported {Read More}

Ushering in Autumn Mantel and Wood Slice Letters

Did you know that autumn, winter, spring and summer all have 1 thing in common, aside from being seasons?  Can you guess what it is? They all have 6 letters in them! So, who cares, right? Wrong! You can get double duty out of the project I’m sharing today, because I made some wood slice letters to display as part of my autumn mantel decor, and since wood slices have 2 sides, you can put the letters for one season {Read More}

Farmhouse Friday #15 – Salvaged Wood Projects

Ohhhh… salvaged wood… Love songs should be written about you, stars should be named after you, tools should fight over the chance to be used on you,  Farmhouse Friday themes should be chosen in your honor … …Oh wait, that IS this week’s theme! 🙂 Whether it came from a barn, pallets or picket fences, we LOVE salvaged wood, don’t we? (you ARE shaking your head, “yes” right?) It has patina that is truly swoon-worthy, and its uses are limitless, so let’s take a look at {Read More}

Bugs, Grease, and an Antique Cutting Board

Old barns have the best stuff  in them, and there was a fair amount of stuff  in our barn when we bought our house. At first glance,  you wouldn’t have thought there was anything really worth keeping, but that’s what makes a barn a good mine – you have to dig for the good stuff, and you have to be willing to look beyond layers of dirt and, creepy crawlies, and spider webs. One of the things we uncovered was an old wooden crate. {Read More}

Tabletop Industrial Cart

One thing often leads to another, but in my case, it can lead to another, and another, and another. Do you remember the little clementine box that I turned into a vintage style crate? Recently I added some vintage style signage  to it, and I loved it even more. Well, I set that little crate on my kitchen shelf, and as I looked at it, it made me think of something I would really, really, really love to have… an old industrial cart.  I {Read More}

DIY Framed Vintage Seed Bag

Do you remember that big blank space I had over my antique kitchen stove… that space I filled with a rustic framed chalkboard?  Well, I did it again – I sold the chalkboard and ended up with a big blank space once again.  It wasn’t any big deal though, and I planned to make another one of those chalkboards, but then I found this old feed bag that I’ve had for several years.  Instead of making a frame for a chalkboard, I {Read More}

DIY Rustic Farmhouse Peg Rack

Suppose your family has a bajillion coats, hats and dog leashes (like mine)… and suppose those coats, hats and dog leashes have taken over every single wall hook in the house (like mine)… and suppose you have pretty things you want to hang up to display, because the aforementioned coats, hats and dog leashes are hogging all the space… What do you do? I’ll tell you what you do, you make your OWN place to hang your pretties… and you {Read More}

Pallet Wood Bathtub Table

I’m a die-hard bathtub soaker, and always have been.  If I had to guess, I’d say that at least 75% of my blog posts have been written while soaking in my bathtub.  It’s the one place in the house where I don’t get distracted by people, the tv, or the phone, so I can concentrate, and relax at the same time. A bathtub table is a must for me, and I’ve had several of them over the years.  Both were made my {Read More}

Salvaged Drawer Front Farm Sign

I really want to start spring cleaning, so I committed last week that I would either repurpose all the salvaged wood and supplies that have been cluttering up my entryway, or I would carry them out to my workshop.  I’m happy to report that I was able to use most of them in new projects, and very few needed to be returned to the workshop. I plan to limit the number of projects I work on at a time, so my house doesn’t get {Read More}
