A little history behind my latest creation. I went with my friend Susan to a little boutique in my town called The Dirt Road. As soon as I walked through the door, I was inspired at what I saw sitting on the table before me. The first thing that came to my mind was, “Heck, I could make that from one of the old guitars I have upstairs.” Therefore, I did. The photo below is of the wooden jack-o-lantern that inspired me.
We just completed a makeover on a home near Nashville, Tennessee with Lowe's. It was a chance to give a home a fresh new look for spring after a very harsh winter.
The home owner was wanting to add new shutters to their windows, so we built them some board and batten shutters.
Making some basic 2x4s look old with some paint and stencils, I created my very own vertical garden for planting hens and chicks (succulents). Once the frame fill out I'll have a living work of art! Full details of the project are on my blog Inspired by Charm: http://www.inspiredbycharm.com/2012/04/outdoor-shelves-part-two-framed-hens.html
After living in our beach cottage for four months I STILL haven’t organized our master closet. Last week, as I was walking down the isles of Target I got an idea of repurposing a curtain rod. When we moved into this home, we “downsized” about 1000 square feet from our old home.

Have ever wanted to build a piece of furniture with reclaimed wood? Then priced out the cost of reclaimed wood? No THANK YOU! I am going to show you how to make a potion for aging new wood.

Every once in a while it's fun to take on an uncomplicated project. When we were gifted a piece of 30 year old redwood board, we realized it would make the perfect industrial shelf for Steph's bedroom.

This is the perfect dream desk for anyone looking to save space in a stylish fashion. This is a wall mounted with a few built-in items. Starting with the back panel this is mounted to the wall with the French cleat system and wrapped with RF LED strip controlled by a remote. To the left corner, there’s a drink holder. In the middle section of the desk, there is an integrated power outlet with two USB port. To the right of that, there’s a small desk grommet to pass wires through giving the desk a clean look. As a way to stay wire-free, there is a hidden wireless charger. The bottom is removable so if any electronics ever fail you can easily replace it. Last but not least the desk is designed as a two-part system to easily break down and transport.
I love to use tin around our home. It's an easy way to add rustic charterer to a door, bar, or wall. What's ideal is finding some good weathered pieces. But that's not always an option.
