Lidded crate office desk with pipe Open sign

read

I think I’m going to call this lidded crate my lucky lidded crate. It’s come in so handy and useful for so many projects over the years! And apparently, counting. You may remember it as part of a storage wall gallery. Then it became a garden-themed entry desk. And today… it’s a full fledged mini […]

Pallet wood office desk with large sign and rustic benches

read

I recently made some fun junk-styled changes to my pallet wood sawhorse office.  Since this spot is in the heart of my kitchen / open concept upstairs, it needs constant gutting and cleaning. Why I have an office for all to see is still beyond me… Who am I kidding… I just like WIDE OPEN […]

Summer patio revamp with a reclaimed wood farm table
