I’m a sentimental sap, with silly attachment to things. I made a landscape timber solar light for my yard out of 25 year old landscape timbers that had my initials carved into it by my husband. As we become grandparents, it’s important to remember that we raised a wonderful daughter who is married and raising a sweet son of their own!
How to make an easy Americana Flag out of wooden garden stakes. This easy project is great to do with the kids for any patriotic holiday.
Junk is my life! Sometimes that junk can seem overwhelming when you let it get out of hand. I’ve been trying to take back my storage areas and workshops a little at a time.

I’m sharing a great collection of spring themed wood projects that you can make this weekend. So many fabulous DIY projects from women just like you, your mom or sister. We women have the power to do these projects, and the step by step directions are available for all of them allowing you the ability to make any of them.
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.
If you know me well at all, you know how much I enjoy shopping at Home Depot. I call it my happy place. I love to just run in and get what I need, but even more than that–browsing the aisles looking for new ways to use their items sparks my creativity. So imagine how thrilled I am to be working with them to promote this month’s DIH Harvest Yard Sign workshop!
I’ve been wanting to make a ONE pallet project. This month’s Power Tool Challenge was the perfect opportunity to do so. I made an easy potting table out of a wooden pallet I got from a neighbor. This is a fairly easy project with minimal cuts.
I’m always looking for inspiration for projects, everywhere I go. On my daily walks with Lulu Mae I pass a neighbor’s house and have long admired a wooden slat bench on their porch. I thought for a long time that I would make one out of a couple of chairs. BUT! Then I got those great reclaimed wooden slats from a neighbor . . .
It’s time for August’s Power Tool Challenge. This month’s theme is Use Unconventional Materials. I used fabric! Other projects include pipes and more! You’ll love all the new ideas. I love my new DIY Drop Cloth Hammock!
The Power Tool Challenge Team is back this month with fabulous, creative weekend garden projects to inspire you. Some are similar and a few are very different, but all are very creative. Be sure to hop over to see all the details on the blog.
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.
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.
For this month’s power tool challenge the theme is outdoor/patio. I use a pocket hose for watering plants and flowers on my patio and I’m tired of it laying on the ground. I decided this was the perfect nudge I needed to fix this problem. I hope you enjoy seeing my project and those of my friends’ taking part in this challenge.
After building the DIY picket fence last year, I’ve been wanting to make a new covering for the porch swing. It was in the plans last year, but it never happened. We made the pergola/arbor to look like the one that covers the front gate. It’s been years since I’ve really enjoyed this swing-I look forward to getting back out there and relaxing.
Angie is so lucky to have access to great farmhouse items to repurpose. In today’s project she will show you how to use an old farmhouse water pump as yard decor! How clever and creative. Have you ever seen a farmhouse water pump?

Can you spy cabinet doors in this simple bench? I boxed in two doors for each support. This was a fun and easy project that can be done in a couple of hours. Extra seating that could even double as a coffee table? Won’t you click the picture to see how it all came together? I think you’ll be surprised how easy it is.
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.
