Imagine all the gardening tools lumped in the corner, propped up on each other with a mound of dirt - that's what this corner looked like. So thus the reorganization of the gardening tools. We decided to mount the 4" PVC pipe up off the floor so that we can periodically sweep. I also wanted a larger area to store the large handled implements. The PVC pipe was cut into 20" lengths and screwed to each other as well as to the 1x4 treated lumber. The back top 1x4 is longer that the bottom one on the wall because we wanted it mounted to the studs.

I had this antique lingerie chest for a few months and when i first saw it, i fell in love! The dainty legs, many drawers and the detailed konbs made this piece move to the top of my project list! I really wanted this one to be unique. I decided to do a design on the drawer fronts and keep it very feminine.
I have a very easy DIY rustic Christmas ornament craft idea to show you. All you need is to print out the image I have created, and turn it into a rustic Christmas ornament that you make yourself! It's so easy that you can have the kids make these and even use them as gifts for their teachers or grandparents!
We needed a mailbox for the farm – and wanted it to match the barn and surroundings. After looking on-line and in stores over the past few months – we realized anything unique was well over $125 to $150.00. We decided to continue the recycle, re-use and re-purpose theme and build one ourselves out of a few pieces of left over scrap lumber and a pallet.
Utilizing the scrap we had on hand – our total cost was under $13. But even if one had to purchase the couple of 2x boards needed for the project, you would still be under $25 to build.

Greetings ! If you are following these posts, you know that I am in the middle of making a gnome village which I'm building into my entertainment stand. It's taking a little longer than I expected because I keep changing it up and adding things! 😊 I began with a bonfire and bridge and continued from there. In this post, I made three little items to go into the village; a mailbox, ladder and sign. After this, it's time to put it all together! (that is, unless I come up with, yet another, project for the village 😊) ANYWAY, the materials I used for this project are: a wine cork, several small branch/sticks, small pieces of thin wood (balsa) , moss, left over paint, 2 small rocks, scrap Styrofoam, tacky glue, xacto knife, Sharpe markers (thin) and a paint brush.

A few years ago a bought a real fixer. Over the years I totally gutted it and opened up the living room,dining room and kitchen. It was nice but opening up the space left the 8 ft ceiling looking boring. Structurally I couldn’t raise the ceiling. But I still wanted to add some interest to the ceiling and better define the spaces.
I don't know about you, but I love decorating with birch bark and birch branches for Christmas. It is so beautiful and textured; perfect for the neutrals of farmhouse decor and perfect to set off green and red if you like more traditional decor.
