I collected a lot of fence wood from curbside when we lived in the Panhandle of Florida. Hurricanes play heck with fencing along with everything else. When we moved back to our home in
Tennessee I loaded that fence wood and all my other junk finds into the moving truck just like it was precious furniture! It's almost all gone now. I made some beach signs with some of it and they turned out great. You can view all the details on my website post.
In our previous home, we didn't have a nice laundry room. It was tiny and stuck in our master bedroom. To help sell our home, we decided to ad a laundry/mudroom inside our two car garage.
It led into our kitchen. We also had a two car detached garage, so there was still plenty of room to park our cars.
We built a small room to hold our washer and dryer, and my husband also built a custom shoe storage bench and coat hangers. I LOVED the shoe storage bench. My four boys would lift up the bench seat and put their shoes in their "box." Best thing we ever did! Hope to do the same thing in our new house some day!
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!
