Summer patio revamp with a reclaimed wood farm table

read

I can’t believe I’m actually sitting on a newly painted, AND clean patio, compared to just one short week ago! It must have been all that rest we took this summer. I knew once home I’d be antsy to get productive, but I had no idea I’d be doing this! And that just goes to […]

Revamped hallway old sign coat hooks entry

read

It all started when reader Sandy said she wanted to meet up with me. How cool! “Do you want to meet at the local restaurant… the house…?” “HOUSE! But please don’t pick up or anything.” Heh. That would be a little like saying to someone there’s no need for a plate to serve up dinner. […]

Mantel decorating with a reclaimed scrap wood window box

read

When we were in Hawaii last summer, we went to this little town called Paia, in Maui. It wears a true hippy vibe, with patchwork buildings, tall looming rustic trees, with plenty of dreadlocks and bare toes for good measure. So when I whipped up this little window box, it yelled BOHO! Or maybe it […]

2×4 industrial kitchen phone station shelf

read

This little 2×4 industrial shelf was all thanks to a challenge… and one very messy kitchen counter! I have a small kitchen, with half of the countertop devoted to my day planner and calendar. But it was always a mess. Basically put, I needed a more organized spot for my dayplanner binder. Forgive me for […]

A super simple reclaimed wood old sign paint shelf

read

On my continued Crap to Clean before Spring quest, today I’m taking you downstairs to my paint studio. Confession… I have not been reading my KonMari book (post HERE) like I should.  But that’s because I haven’t caught up to her suggestions yet. Goodness… I need a year off of life to do this thing […]

Lovin’ this reclaimed wood Love rope sign

read

It’s been a LONG time since I whipped up something to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I’ve created these salvaged junk hearts awhile back, but I was overdue on something new. What can I say… I was inspired by the given theme of junk valentines at this weekend’s salvaged junk link party, so I wanted to play too! But, boy […]

Shiplap styled BAKERY kitchen sign

read

I dream of a farmhouse kitchen, filled with the Heavenly scent of fresh, homemade baking. It reminds me of my Grandma’s house. She made homemade bread nearly every single day. Best stuff ever. My mom was an avid baker too! She’d make something special every single Saturday night, usually her delicious crumb cake. Great memory! So… what happened […]

Scrooge-less reclaimed wood Christmas tree and star

read

I’m embarrassed to admit, I can’t remember the last time I decorated outdoors for Christmas. Much of that has to do with the front door and side windows needing paint. And the concrete needing work. And the whole outside needing… a good farmhouse experience. Or something. Or a pretty for sale sign on the front yard would work […]
