Hall Table Repurposed Dresser

I have a new project to share with you today. It’s a hall table (sofa table) made out of a dresser. Do you remember last month when Mindi shared her blue dresser made into a bench? We were actually working on the same kind of project without even knowing it. You know I love cutting up furniture. Although this one wasn’t really too hard, it was a little harder than I expected. Here’s how it all started . . . I picked up this $10 dresser at a yard sale last Fall. I didn’t really have a … [Read more...]

gates and arbor | DIY Picket Fence

It’s been a while since I’ve shared an update with you on the fence. We had a couple of snow storms, and some very cold weather, so we took a little time off.  We have made some great progress lately  with the gates and the arbor (pergola).  It’s very exciting, and I can honestly say I’ve been doing a little happy dance lately.   Before the snow storms came, Rodney worked hard on cutting and routing a bunch of 1x’s for the post caps.     Over the weekend, I was … [Read more...]

DIY Farmhouse Wooden Shutters

Hey there!  It's Angie from Knick of Time, here to share a new tutorial for DIY farmhouse wooden shutters. When we finished our entryway remodel a few weeks ago, and I wasn't sure what I wanted on the windows, so I made some temporary drop cloth curtains for privacy until I made up my mind.  Later I realized that wooden shutters would tie in really well with the barn door cabinet my husband had built into the wall, and they would be easy and really inexpensive to make - easy enough for even a … [Read more...]

recent finds | Cabin Fever

I suppose since I can’t really work on projects that the next best thing is to go junk shopping.  Over the weekend I visited my favorite Vendors’ Village.  I suppose many people have some cabin fever because they were really busy.   I barely got the haul in my car. I should have taken a picture of all of the stuff on the flat cart. Another photo op missed!   These finials were stuck back in a dark corner and I almost missed them! There were nine of them, for one dollar … [Read more...]
