Talk of the Town #60 is live! Great features to isnpire you, even in the kitchen! Which feature do you think I chose? By the way, are you some of the fortunate folks enjoying the warmer than normal temperatures? I am, and I’ve been busy working in the shop (aka driveway).
I love making hall trees. I think a green hall tree was one of my very first projects. This one was made from an old door and a dreadful orange shelf/nightstand. I’m so pleased how it turned out. I’ll show you how I removed all evidence of the doorknob! Do click to see the transformation!
I have an easy project to share with you today! I love using reclaimed wood for outdoor projects. Sometimes I just make stuff up as I go along, and learn better ways to do things, that is the case with this project. The next rustic ladder plant display I make will be a little different.
This month’s power tool challenge was “favorite tool”. Although the jigsaw is not my very favorite tool, I think it might be the best option for a beginner’s first saw! You’ll be inspired by all the projects from my friends as well as this easy diy cutting board!

A new writing desk hutch made from a vintage sewing cabinet and a repurposed furniture drawer! There was some trial and error trying to find “just” the right drawer, and a few hiccups along the way, but in the end, I love how this turned out and I think the Naval color is perfect with the cubbies.
This easy project can be completed fast and frugally. This is the easiest idea ever for turning a cutting board into an iPad holder that has a chalkboard. With some hooks on the back, it’s a chalkboard key rack! So many possibilities for using a thrift store cutting board!
This chest was actually sitting beside a dumpster waiting to be hauled. I rescued it and used old suitcase handles, etc. to give it a different look. GET HERE TO SEE PROJECT DETAILS Suitcase Chest submitted by Mac Caldwell
Cheap & Easy! That’s what I love! 🙂 Today’s project is both of those. A plain door mat from Home Depot for less than $5 is easily customized with spray paint-even in the dead of winter. I love this color, and it really dresses up this plain rug.
Talk of the Town #58 is filled with great projects, including some awesome Valentine’s ideas. I’m always amazed at the great ideas you share with us each week. You inspire me!
I have wanted to make some drop cloth curtains for a very long time. When I got the Iron Orchid Designs roller stamps, I knew they would be the perfect addition for my curtains. Incredibly easy, and a beautiful look= a win/win situation! Easy project-hop over to see just how easy!
When it’s too cold outside to work on projects, what’s a girl to do? Go shopping, of course! Thrift shopping is sort of like my therapy. I like browsing and dreaming about what things “could become”. I hope you like looking at my recent junkin’ finds. I’d love to hear your ideas of projects for all these great items.
The results are in of the 2017 Survey! I learned so much and I’m already in the process of making a lot of changes. Many changes to make the site better and more user friendly. I’ve also made changes for email subscribers. Bonus! I updated my mobile theme-so it’s going to look different-more like the desktop version. I hope you enjoy reading some comments, and love the new changes coming!
