Talk of the Town #77 features a fun table made from a drawer, a jewelry display, bar stool makeover, reclaimed bench, and how to make bottle cap magnets. Our featured blogger is Quinn from Dad, What’s 4 Dinner. I hope you find something to inspire you to do a project this weekend.
Here’s a redo of a redo! It doesn’t happen often, but this is an old project I did in 2009, and now I’ve updated it and gave it a new look. It was a nightstand, then a t.v. stand, now it’s a small chest great for a guest room OR a coffee station in a small kitchen.
What a lovely planter we have to share with you today. A hanging planter that is made from cedar scraps. Leave it to Mindi to make something so darn cute out of scraps. This would look oh so pretty on my DIY Picket fence! So funny how Mindi and I think alike. I have been toying with something very similar, but couldn’t quite figure out how to make it work….
I am so excited to share this month’s Power Tool Challenge project. The theme was Summer Fun, and I DID struggle with trying to figure out WHAT to make. But when I figured it out, I ran with it and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! I made a portable diy pallet bar. It’s so easy to set up, store and transport for on-the-go parties and functions. I did a little video so you can see exactly how easy it sets up.
I picked up a $5 vintage drawer and with a scrap piece of wood, paint and glaze, it’s now ideal for a small wall shelf, or a shelf to rest on a console or library table. I found a new glaze and I’m loving it so much, I can’t stop using it.
Fun features for Talk of the Town #76. I hope you find something to inspire you. If not from the features, maybe from your hosts.
I’m joining a couple of friends today hosting a craft stuff giveaway! All this stuff is up for grabs to one lucky winner. It’s easy to enter and you will also be able to enter to win from two of my friends, they each are having fabulous giveaways of their own on their sites.
A $5 chippy chair planter? Yep, this project was so easy, and I love how it looks. The chippy chair got a quick white wash paint makeover and it was ready to display my pretty Boston fern. Hop over to see more chair planter ideas.
Talk of the Town #75. Painting fabric, Bean Wall Art, Outdoor Side Table, Embroidery Hoop Terrarium, and a Farmhouse Flower Vase . Our featured blogger is Tricia from Simplicity in the South. Which feature do you think I chose?
I can be such a procrastinator. I have had this drawer in one place or another for years. I painted it from black to white last year, but still didn’t do anything but move it around the garage. Finally I finished it. You’ll get the details on this and see many more repurposed drawer ideas to inspire you when you hop over.
It’s rare for me-but two items in this month’s recent finds post have already been blogged about. Yep, you’ve already seen the completed projects before I’ve even shared where I picked them up. I hope you hop over to check out the rest of my great finds from May.
Originally priced at $20 this whiskey barrel lid was a steal at $4. It needed some TLC, repairs and sealing. Now it makes a real statement piece for a home bar or the bourbon lover. The brand is Stitzel Weller, poured right here in Louisville, KY back in 1961.
Talk of the Town 74 is live! I love all the features this week, well-maybe not the recipe because I don’t cook. But all the DIY projects could easily be my pick. Which is your favorite feature?
I am now a member of a maker space-called Maker 13 in Jeffersonville Indiana. I have taken several classes. I’m sharing how I made a maple and cherry wood cheese board. It was much easier than I ever thought it would be and I used a planer for the first time ever. I’m excited to tell you all about this new experience. I hope you enjoy reading about my new cheese board.
I found a $1 antique oval picture frame at Vendors’ Village (where my booth is located). It was in rough shape, but I knew it was worth a buck. It got put aside until I finished my latest hall tree and I was wishing I had the perfect wreath to hang on it. I didn’t, so I redid the oval frame into a chalkboard instead. I hope you learn something from this short tutorial.
