Faux industrial cart coffee crate side table

read

This next year, I plan to ‘upgrade’ a few key pieces of furniture that I’ve made over the years, to give them more of a ‘grown up industrial edge’. Yes. I want my junk to grow up. Just a little. For one, while my pallet wood TV media stand is still standing strong, I’d love to […]

Tree farm themed Christmas front porch

read

One day, I dream of having a big, wonderful farmhouse front porch that’s easy to capture in pictures. Until then,welcome one and all, to my skinny little front overhang with the most challenging photo taking angles in the land! Not only is there a little tree in the way, the three brick posts holding the roof are plunked down […]

Christmas tree in an Antiques crate

read

While I’ve been busy downsizing the amount of stuff in my home, one thing has still remained that seems to follow me from room to room. This big ‘ol black distressed box / crate / trunk with rope handles thing has great bones! It even has a lid attached. I’ve been using it lately for […]

Pallet wood You Cut Tree Farm Christmas sign

read

Slow as molasses is about the best description I can come up with in regards to my Christmas decorating. I got started on my mantel, however with a major monsoon going on outside (that’s my shopping centre for all things green), the branches would have to wait. The delay proved to be good I suppose. The […]

Scrap wood buffalo check and snowflake Christmas ornaments

read

Over the years, I’ve managed to diminish my Christmas box stash down to two boxes. One with lights and a few ornaments, and the other with a few faux wreaths. That’s it. In some ways, I need a major kudos for letting go of so. much. stuff! And in other ways, well, let’s just say, I scold […]

Super festive Christmas and winter directional signs

read

I have always ALWAYS loved the look of a multi-directional sign. Whether it’s on a ski hill or while vacationing, I’ve always admired how neat a bunch of signs all in one spot actually look. Especially if you are a signaholic type… So I decided to try my hand at making the idea myself. I gathered […]

Buffalo check and Plaid placemats for a fall or everyday table

read

I really do love my big metal kitchen island that also doubles as a table. And I also really love my pallet wood sawhorse office desk where a kitchen table would normally go.  All that works in this house. It really does. However I secretly miss having a kitchen table at times. I’m picturing a big […]

Stencil a reversible Christmas and Fall Buffalo Check Cabin Pillow

read

Imagine ALL your all season home decor items having the ability to magically morph into full out fall or Christmas with the snap of your fingers.  Wouldn’t it be amazing to get rid of the big boxes of Christmas we only use 1 month out of the entire year? Only to use things we use every day instead? Yes… why yes it […]

Welcome Fall quirky reclaimed wood pumpkin sign

read

This summer when I painted my front door Bayberry green, I was soooo looking forward to playing with fall and Christmas decor against it! It’s such a lovely natural moss green tone that just seems to go with anything. Nature never fails as inspiration, does it? So blame this project on my 2nd Starbucks pumpkin […]

White-white walls with revamped kitchen crate shelves

read

When I first painted my house after the main renos, a really nice tone called Bamboo Beach by Cloverdale Paint (in Canada) covered every. single. wall. All of them. I really did love the colour… until I didn’t. As time went on I just desired something fresher. On went the search of the perfect greige! […]
