First, you take some old discarded windows from a job site and distress, paint and
distress some more to achieve the desired look. Then you get a family photo enlarged as an engineering print to fit the chosen window. Use cardstock and the Cricut to produce a long held family motto. Take some old fence boards and make a farmhouse looking shutter and put it all together! "Family is forever" is front and center in our kitchen to remind us everyday of what is truly important!

DAWN DAVIS I'm sure your picture is beautiful. What a sweet friend to do that for you!
The rest of the details on our kitchen table makeover! Our table was much loved and well used (think pencil art) and needed an update badly. My husband and son sanded it to its bare bones and then my painter husband went to work figuring out how to get the look we wanted with the table we had. All the details are on the blog!
to make an easy wreath for spring and summer! Just add them to a grapevine wreath, fill with faux flowers and Spanish moss and hang! I have a super sunny porch so real plants are out of the question...but that might work for you. Wouldn't it be pretty filled with succulents? Find a complete tutorial on my blog.

Debbie, this is so cute! I have a bunch of pots leftover from my daughter's 16th birthday
party years ago (I used them for candle holders). Love it!
My large antique alarm clock collection and other vintage finds were the inspiration for my craft room/office. Needing a place to create and store all of my crafting materials, I used
second-hand furniture that I painted, a pair of IKEA bookcases, DIY electrical conduit drapery rod, hand-made draperies and other cost-saving elements to turn this room into my little slice of crafting heaven without spending a lot!
