rustic fresh coffee sign

I have a confession. Up until 2 days ago… I had this snowflake hanging coffee mug station behind my stove. This was part of my Christmas tour! Egads guys. Maybe I should have left it and just said I was 6 months early… Well, I caught it accidentally in an instagram story not long ago […]

30 minute chippy wood kitchen island revamp

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.

Shiplap styled BAKERY kitchen sign
