One of the Facebook pages I follow always posts pictures of Cardinals eating from feeders made from a cup, saucer/small plates & chain. I decided I wanted to make my own. I went to Goodwill & found a couple cups, but got bread plates instead of saucers, as they gave more space for the bird seed. I made my feeder, but while I was in the process of it, I decided that I liked the way it would look on a wall, then thought I'd put one of my battery-powered tea lightset in it. I loved it. I have 2 different patterned ones, and went back to get more plates & cups today.
The old fluorescent lights in the kitchen were not only ugly, but they burned out. So we wanted to get the ceiling to match the "Old Farm Kitchen" appearance that we are striving to accomplish in the kitchen

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.
Every since I made the first set of concrete lamps, I have been asked to produce another. This time it had to be easier to make, had to be larger, and with the option of placing it outdoors. After brainstorming here is the attempt of improvement. Check out the video for more details.
This Project was inspired by a light I saw on pinterestcalled rings of Saturn. I wanted to put my own twiston it by using segmentation. I have always beeninterested in wood segmentation and the projects thatyou can make with it. This project is inexpensive andrequires very little tools. All your friends will be soimpressed when you start making things using thisnew skill you are gonna learn here. One thing I wantyou to take away from this video is that you don'tneed to spend hours building a fancy jig for your tablesaw to do perfect segmentation projects and I amgoing to show you how right now. so lets get started.https://youtu.be/aEiH4d_TOhc
I'm excited to share the possibilities that can come from simple hand tools. I made this lamp by hand and no power tools except a drill. I did it as a challenge. I was glad I took the challenge on, because this was a learning curve for me as well. It was a very slow and tedious process. If you have power tools and wish to make this lamp then you'll know which power tools to use. For viewers with less tools be sure to watch the video to get more info on the build. Find all the material used at the end.

After searching for a new medicine cabinet and not finding any of quality or reasonable price, I decided to just give mine a facelift. I measured the mirror door and went to a craft store and bought an open back picture frame for $25. I removed the door and once properly aligned, I secured the mirror to the frame with metal mirror holders and frame screws. I had to buy the screws separately because the screws that came with the metal holders were too long. I then ran strong adhesive glue all around the edge of the mirror and let dry for around 6 hours. Once dry I reattached the door and voila, it looks like a brand new medicine cabinet. Next up, getting rid of that awful light above it.......baby steps. ;)
I am an avid repurposer and love when my customers think outside of the box. This Idea blew the box up!
One day I was talking with one of my paint customers and she wanted something for her cats to climb on to get to her big window.
I had the vision of putting photos of my husband and I from our wedding. We've been married 24 yrs next month. Married at the rip age of 17 and 19 yrs old. Our road hasn't been easy (who's is?) and we have danced through many minefields over our lifetime. Which brings me to the lyrics on the mirror. Lyrics from our song, "Dancing in the Minefields" by Andrew Peterson. It's the most beautiful song that describes our ups and downs over the last 24 yrs. No matter what life threw at us, we clung to the promise of forgiveness, grace and unconditional love.
Sooooo now that you understand my heart behind this piece...lets get to the fun part!
It's a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. The hand carved details are just gorgeous.
We are currently remodeling our major bathroom. Our home is 97 years old and through the 35 years that we have lived here we have done many projects to make changes. We have a set of French doors that we took down many years back. They have been stuck away in a storage closet. I have always wanted to do something with the set or just one of them. During our bathroom project, we removed a wall with the intention of replacing with something more attractive. As I was contemplating what to replace the old wall with I remembered the French doors. So, I asked my husband, who does a lot of the carpentry work for me if he thought that was a feasible idea. So plans are set in motion and we get busy. It was my intent to use as much of the antique parts and pieces that we have saved through the years and that is exactly what we did. The paint was the only thing that we had to purchase. The project took longer than we intended because the weather (snow and cold temperatures) brought everything to a standstill.
All items for this project are available at the Dollar Tree except the Mod Podge. This is an easy project to add an Autumn focal point to your home that doesn't look 'homemade'. Making several of these candles would be perfect as a centerpiece for your Fall table. Happy Creating everyone!
If you're looking for a cute, unique way to consolidate your children's snacks and toys in their overnight bag this is the perfect little DIY project for you. If you have older littles, this would be a great weekend project to do together over a cold glass of milk and some homemade cookies.
