Reclaimed wood toolbox and coasters for coffee lovers

Homestead Blend Coffee tote-1925

A few years back, my brother and I were chatting about what made the perfect gift for someone who has everything. His advise? Consumable. And how true is that? No extra clutter to be had once it’s gone! My mom loved to eat out, so for many years, she received a gift certificate to her fav […]

In preparation for The Olde Farmhouse vintage market, I’ve been playing with the old fence wood I collected a while back. Remember the lottery win post HERE? First I needed to find it a home.

I woke up to a very nice surprise today. Remember yesterday’s post on being gifted by others? What timing! Just this AM, friend Kelly dropped this toolbox off by my front door. She found it at a garage sale, and being that it reminded her of me, it was brought my way. I had to run into town […]

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 7.00.45 PM

It’s been said I don’t ‘do colour’ in my house. And I’d have to agree. Between my monotone’d salvage farmhouse styled bathroom and rustic bedroom, there’s virtually no colour. Well, adding colour is pretty easy AND painless with just a little paint! And I’m happy to say, making this old sign toolbox side table to store […]
