Every year we receive beautiful Christmas cards from friends and family that just lay in a stack on the counter. This year I wanted a simple, seasonal way to display them. I created a "tree" on my wall using just jute rope and sticks.
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.
For holiday wall decor, I wanted to make something unique and special. I got a bunch of old dock boards from our neighborhood park that were severely weathered to make this with. I had the idea to paint them with white acrylic craft paint to make them look like birch trees. It is crazy to think this stack of weathered dock boards…
Call me crazy, but I have always wanted to paint a living room rug! I spent a few months keeping an eye out for a 9' x 12' secondhand rug.

Earlier this summer, my sister opened a maternity store in a space that was once a beauty salon. When she renovated, the space she wanted my help the most with was the kids play area.

One of my most popular posts ever was my modern stair baluster makeover back in 2016. My friend Savanna was aware of this transformation in my home and subsequently asked me to help her revamp her stair railing as well. Our DIY stair railing safety redo was more about bringing her balustrade up to code and making it safe for her little children. I felt compelled to help her so Savanna could feel confident this fix was a DIY opportunity instead of something she needed to spend hundreds hiring out.
I've seen a lot of different methods to writing on wood signs, but mine has to be my favorite. I do not have a printer, so most methods I have seen will not work for me (graphite paper, press and trace, cut out and adhere letters, etc). But I do have a projector....
Hey everyone! Melissa from Welcome to the Woods here :) I built a beautiful farmhouse console table that was easy to put together with mostly 2 x 4's and leftover lumber.
