Don't you love the look of mudroom cubbies?! Unfortunately, I don't have a great mudroom to fit the cubbies in, but the garage worked great for what I needed to organize my children's things. My garage is officially a mess so it needs some organization! The measurements will depend on how many cubbies you want and how tall you want it to be. My cabinet measures 6 feet tall x 4 feet wide. Here's how to build your own!
The Holiday decorating season is approaching rapidly and here at Gilbert Marketplace, we are so excited! Today I'll be using some scrap wood I have around to make these beautiful snowmen. Think: recycled wood, and farmhouse style holiday decor. It's my favorite and I'm sharing lots of projects this month- if you're feeling crafty and want to make some gifts follow me!
Cutting up pallets and turning them into custom home decor has been the norm around my house. Recently, I decided I wanted to hang a couple pictures of my kids in my dining room and thought what better way to display their pictures than in rustic pallet frames.
About a month or so ago, we swapped a couple rooms on the first floor of our house (former playroom became office, former wasted space room became playroom). The new playroom was off the front entry, and had a large opening that we needed to barricade. French doors would have been a great solution EXCEPT they are pricey, and I didn't really want to close the room off entirely. And to buy a gate for that width?? Forget it! So expensive, and I really didn't even like the smaller ones we already had.
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
We were in desperate need of extra storage in our teeny, tiny guest bath. The single vintage shelf was simply not enough. A fan of all things industrial, we used metal plumbing fixtures and glass to create three simple shelves. Triple the storage space!

Pallets are awesome. They are cheap, even free, and have an aesthetic that works with any decor from super-modern to shabby chic, to country farmhouse. The idea of reusing this abundantly available source of lumber, and keeping them out of the landfills is also appealing.
The down side to pallets is that they are ridiculously difficult to tear apart or reuse if you don’t have the right kind of tools. So here are the must have tools to work with pallets, if you want to play with pallets without hurting yourself or others.
This past weekend we decided to change our master bedroom from a stark white bedroom with no personality, to a room that now feels cozy and warm simply by adding wall boards by Weaber Lumber to our wall. Check out the blog for before and after pics!
Some vintage quilts are in gorgeous shape and can still be used on a bed...but then there are others that are falling to pieces! When I found one at a thrift store...that was gorgeous in spots but disintegrating in others, I decided to salvage what I could...and here is the first project I made!
