I feel like so many of my craft projects start out the same. I will be out for a walk on our farm and find some old piece of “junk” and get inspired to turn it into a funky home decor project or fun yard art.I found an old bike wheel out in the junk pile on our property and asked my mother in law if I could use it. I brought it back to our house where it sat on the front porch for a few days. My husband saw it and asked why there was a bike wheel sitting on the front porch.“Oh that,” I replied. “I’m going to make it into a wreath”. I quickly realized how crazy this sounded and continued to explain. “I know that sounds really weird, but I promise it will be really cool looking”My husband didn’t even bat an eyelash. At this point he’s so used to my weird projects he just nodded. “Oh I’m sure it will.” I guess the people in my life are used to my recycled craft shenanigans.The only difficult part of this project is removing the tire from the wheel and even that isn’t very hard.
How many of you have to go rooting through your utensil drawer just to find measuring cups and spoons when you're cooking? And how many of you constantly have to look up conversions on your phone while your hands are covered in flour and gunk? I know I've had these issues a time or two, so this Kitchen Conversion Chart is perfect for my kitchen cabinet -- this way I have all I need in one spot and I don't have to go searching for things while I'm cooking.
My sun porch is a multipurpose room at my house. First and foremost, it is my grandkid's domain when they are visiting. When I entertain, it is my overflow room. We often eat our meals out there, and it's the best place in the house to hear the rain falling. I wanted it to look better than it did and I needed storage for blankets, toys and games. I stain-painted the walls green to give it some color, pulled up the rugs and put down a vinyl floor, and then I got to work on the built-in seating. I have never built anything on my own before, but I have helped out and paid close attention to my dad when he did things. This was my first...from design to completion - even the striped pillows. I was most excited to see how sturdy it turned out...I hope I don't tire of it because it's not going anywhere.
October is here and it is time for me to get my fall decorating done! It is now or never! I really wanted to do something a little different around my front door this year. I wanted something full and lush to welcome guests to my home this fall.

If you like rustic decor the way that I like rustic decor, you are going to love this! When I saw someone was selling 100 year old beams from a barn they had dismantled my heart jumped and my brain started turning. I wanted to do something at my new lake house fixer upper with one of these beams, but what?

I used up all the oyster sauce the last time I cooked and as I was about to throw it in the recycling bin, I figured it had a really nice form. So I placed it aside first and when I was ready to work on some DIY, I repurposed this sleek looking bottle.
I’m pretty sure you have some nice looking bottle of sauce in your pantry, so when you use up all the contents do not throw it just yet, give this diy a try.
