Farmhouse Wood Tote DIY

Farmhouse Wood Tote DIY Sometimes when you sell handmade items and have one item that sells really well, it can be both a blessing … and I won’t say a curse, but kind of close.

Farmer’s Market Farmhouse Style Decor | 3 Easy Projects  Before getting full-time jobs, all three of my sons spent their summers earning money selling fresh produce at our local farmer’s market. It turned them into produce “snobs” because

Hot Chocolate Recipe DIY Chalkboard and Cocoa Bar

My family has been craving hot cocoa, but rather than buy packs at the grocery store, or the even more expensive version from Starbucks, I decided to display a homemade hot chocolate recipe on a pallet frame chalkboard. I plan to make a batch of the homemade mix for each of my kids and attach the recipe card to it. Here’s how I made the hot chocolate recipe chalkboard: I cut pallet wood into two 29″ lengths and two shorter 18″ lengths. I attached the two {Read More}

how to make farmhouse picket fence wall hooks

If you’ve got about an hour to spare, today I’m going to show you how to make farmhouse style picket fence wall hooks that can be used to display home decor, like hanging mason jars, or use as a coat, hat, or apron rack.

Well, a few days ago, I shared a little wooden crate I had upcycled to look like an old produce shipping crate. It has the words, “Sweet Harvest Produce Co.” lettered on the side, but that lettering was only part of my newest Vintage Sign Stencil design, so I’m {Read More}

DIY Farmhouse Chalkboard with Rustic Wooden Frame

I have a big empty space on my kitchen wall, just above our antique stove. I don’t do empty spaces.  I’ve never been a minimalist. I haven’t left the space empty intentionally, but every time I make something and hang it there, then list it in my shop – it has sold quickly.  It makes for great sales, but not for a pretty kitchen. I didn’t want to spend much money, so I designed a farmhouse style rustic wooden frame chalkboard. It’s an easy project that requires very basic {Read More}

Sidewalk Chalkboard from Wooden Folding Chairs

How to turn a wooden folding chair into a standing chalkboard.
