This is a project that I have had on my to-do list for a long time. It’s been done a lot, and maybe you’ve even done one yourself. I’m giving you lots of tips on the build and the painting, so you will want to hop over to the blog to see the transformation.
A project today from Angie . . . How to make a simple and charming rope shelf with just one pallet wood board, rope and a drill. This is an easy project for the beginner.
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!
Happy Valentines Day! Have you hugged your sweetie today? I have! Who is MY sweetie? My Miss Lulu Mae. I told her Happy Valentines Day very first thing this morning, and she just wagged her tail. Speaking of Lulu Mae, she’s having a little issue with her leg. Her little knee keeps popping out. The…
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!
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.
This month I have been cleaning things out and getting organized. I just made a super cute Desk Organizer out of fence wood scraps, crib slats and left over chicken wire. It is great to keep my taxes and bills from getting lost! I am excited to share a simple picture tutorial so you can make your own!
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!
