building a reclaimed wood garden fence-003

  There is nothing quite like an unplanned project. Because no planning appears to work best in these parts! So thanks to my lack of due diligence, I’m taking you waaaay back to the garden shed and fence project that was started last summer. As a refresher… Here’s Part 1 where we first cleaned up. Welcome back […]

Rustic vacation directional signs in an old window

read

I really should have called this project  the ‘I can’t make up my mind ‘ directional signs, because boy did this project take a few hundred U-turns! It all started with a wooden window frame some time ago. This is the window found from the trip to the Alexandria bridge where I found that surprise […]

What is it about chalkboards?! I love the look of one, even though I don’t really desire to write on one with chalk! Anyone try the chalk pens yet? I’ve yet to but sure want to. I think I love them because they help anchor a room feature so well. And if painted black, look […]

A message for those fearing to be different

read

When I first started blogging, well before the art of repurposing became ‘a thing’, the ideas that popped into my head were… unique. Maybe even forbidden in the ‘real world of decorating’. I didn’t even know how to swing a power tool back then. Yet, because I desired to decorate my newly renovated home without […]

Rustic winter decorating with black, white and wood

read

To winter decorate or not to winter decorate… That was a real question for a while. Traditionally, once Christmas is a wrap, I like to take everything down and pull the decorating back to bare bones to enjoy the empty sparce look for a spell. However, once I started undecorating the Christmas tree, I stopped. […]
