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 […]

9 – Stacking reclaimed wood for airflow, and hiding stuff with a faux chest

read

Vision watching a cartoon. All these looney tune characters are trying to stuff an itty bitty building full with heaps of reclaimed wood. So they toss huge bundles over their shoulders, and darting at road runner speed, they huff and they puff and they PUSH the stuff in. Upon impact, the wildly bulging building separates at the seams for just […]

Old signs with rustic crates mini entryway

read

Due to all my deep cleaning, purging and painting of late, I’ve been eyeing up my front entry. It’s in desperate need of a new, fresh look. After mulling things over, I decided to try a ‘test run’, or mini version of my brainstorm in the photo studio. Every entry could use a place to […]
