I like sign text to breathe, and one board […]

Pretend for a moment, you live in a rambling old farmhouse. The kitchen cupboards are imperfect. White, chipped, and some hinges may even squeak. The countertops are reclaimed wood. Imperfectly perfect. The floors underfoot are black and white checked linoleum tiles, classic, striking. And in the corner of the room, sits this quaint little reclaimed wood message […]

This is one of those projects where you slap something together as things come to mind, not paying all that much attention to detail, because it’s not like you are going to BLOG ABOUT IT. Heh.  Well… after my haul from the flea market on the weekend, I needed a place for all my rusty hinges […]
