Small Shelf Coat Rack

I made this cute little twin headboard bench by cutting up the foot board. When I did that I had the piece in the blue rectangle left over—well, actually I had a pair of them.   To make this small shelf, I dug out a piece of molding from my stash and got to work measuring, sawing and drilling pocket holes with my Kreg Jig. After all of that, I snatched up a scrap 1x4 to make the shelf portion of this project securing it with Gorilla Wood Glue and my nail gun.   I painted it … [Read more...]

Welcome Sign Shutter Porch Decor

  Easy porch decor and a stenciled welcome sign.   Last month while I was cutting some shutter (bi-fold door) door projects on my compound miter saw, this piece fell off the saw and busted. I picked up the pieces and started putting it back together, one.slat.at.a.time.  It was very tedious.  As I neared the bottom, I decided that it was long enough and proceeded to put the larger piece in place with my Ryobi nail gun and Gorilla Wood glue. That sort of left some ends … [Read more...]

Easy Rustic Frame 3 ways

I am so excited too share these easy rustic frame projects with you. You know I love easy, rustic projects that use up bits and pieces. I have a lot of old fencing that isn’t prime quality for my Etsy shop signs.

It seriously doesn’t get better than this. I sure hope they are well received at Glendale Crossing Days. … [Read more...]

  I haven’t really been looking for stuff lately. I meant to go to some yard sales over the weekend to look for some beds, but I didn’t get around to it. While on my way to do some shopping for an upcoming Homeright post I saw a church yard sale and made a quick stop. … [Read more...]

Milk Bottle Caps Art

Happy Friday, everyone!  It's Angie, dropping in from Knick of Time, with a new project for you. If you're familiar with my blog, you know my home is farmhouse style, and I've been adding some pops of color in my all white kitchen.  I have an ever growing collection of old milk bottle caps that I love, but had never done anything with.  I turned them into kitchen wall art that serves a extra purpose, which you'll see as well!  It's a quick and easy project, which is an added bonus! … [Read more...]

Headboard Wall Shelf

Have you ever seen a project that you just have to try to make? I have seen this headboard wall shelf project over and over again on Pinterest.  I suppose I see it a lot because I’m always doing headboard searches. I pinned it years ago, but it wasn’t until I actually started on this project that I finally “clicked” on the pin. The pin leads to an Etsy shop, but I’m not even sure it’s the right link. (you’ll see the inspiration piece at the bottom of this post) … [Read more...]
