So hiding in the corner of this estate sale was a vintage wooden ironing board. After a few minutes of haggling, the seller was worn down and let it go for $20. I had some idea of what I wanted to do but researched what ideas Hometalk and Pinterest might have. Bunches. With Christmas fast approaching I narrowed my search to Santa. Here is my version.
This is a an easy way to make a bed skirt without having to sew. I have made them in the past and used elastic and was not really satisfied with the results and using the sheet between the mattress and box springs is a pain in the back to put onto the bed. The elastic idea was difficult to wash since it was a very long item that tangled in the washer and dryer. This idea is short valances that are easy to wash.
Have you too noticed the farmhouse clock craze of late?Well, I couldn't just stand by and watch it all happen!So I dug through my scrap wood and junk pile stash, dreaming up a way to create my own take on a clock... with no working clock parts in stock I might add.The result is a fun take on a classic... you'll soon see what I mean. Who wants to be on time anyway?!Here's how I made this:
I love simple and fast projects! So when it came time for me to do something with this sad excuse of a clock I wanted just that. You see I was looking to lighten up the decor in that room and the black face of the clock was just too... well, black!
I wanted to give my family a space to hang out, watch the sunset and give my husband a nice little nook to write.

Today I am sharing an easy method to refurbish wood furniture without sanding or stripping the old finish. The dresser I am working on is from the early 1900's and is in very rough shape.
Wanted tree to have more than just lights and ornaments. A friend suggested spraying pine cones for filler, I liked th idea if adding pine cones but decided to use white wax and acrylic glitter paint rather than spraying them with spray paint or snow.
I hate stripping. It is messy, time consuming and to be effective, it usually involves harsh chemical products.If you also hate it, you will like this tutorial. I will show you how I re-stained the top of this buffet without stripping or sanding it down using gel stain.
My friends at Burlap Fabric sent me some beautiful red ticking stripe fabric. I knew the fabric would be perfect for a Christmas DIY! But if you’ve been around for a bit, you know that sewing is something I do not do. It’s not that I don’t want to. It’s just that I never learned how so I am so intimidated by it. I hope to learn one day, but today is not that day.So, I started thinking up some ideas for fabric that didn’t require sewing and the thought of a Christmas rag wreath hit me. I remembered that I had some left over drop cloth from my DIY bedskirt, so I grabbed that to add in as well.
