This project has been years in the making, and sadly it is still not finished. I have to add one more door to the radio record cabinet.

I have a really easy window project for you today. I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest for my fireplace. This is sort of like a fireplace screen to use when you’re not building fires. In my case, my fireplace is no longer a working fireplace.
I fixed an old wooden ladder up and painted it with my Finish Max. It makes the perfect outdoor plant stand for a garden or patio. I decorated it with some succulents and other plants. Topping it off with some inexpensive outdoor decor from local dollar stores. All in all, this makes for a very frugal project!
As a lover of wind chimes and one that doesn’t like to throw things away, of course I decided to save this old gal. Some wind chimes need a little more work than others, but I can’t imagine me ever throwing one out instead of repairing it. Do you have an old wind chime that needs some TLC?

It’s time for the Power Tool Challenge project for May. This month’s theme is Pallets. I used pallet boards to make a table, but actually staged/styled it as a coffee station or coffee bar. It’s sofa table height, and you could easily make it to be a kitchen island or outdoor serving station. The possibilities are endless with this type of pallet board table!
I have a fun Spring project to share with you today. I made this to share for the Power Tool Challenge group–the theme was Spring. I used reclaimed stair stringers to make a 3 tiered plant stand. I purposely made it to look old. It’s actually made of mostly new lumber.
