A Kitchen Cart Gets Repurposed Into A Unique Rolling Wine Bar

I did some Estate Sale Shopping in search for some fun and different Engagement Party Decor! I knew a rolling cart would be useful but I needed to change it up a bit and give it life! Bright paint, vintage rakes, chalkboard paint... yup, this might just do the trick!

I'm So Ready For Time In The Garden —Are You?

Lately I've posted DIY & pallet wood projects, repurposing stuff, vintage updo's and a few spring flowers but... Spring fever has made me think of well, more SPRING! I thought I'd share a few of my favorite garden blooms and, who knows, maybe it will get you excited about spring time flowers and summer sunshine. I know I can't wait to get out there and get my hands dirty in that garden soil!

RUSTIC & REPURPOSED DIY Bathroom Hand Towel Holder

Having several vintage farmhouse and barn handles to pick from... I always knew I would find something to do with them all. During our recent remodel of our little powder room, I figured out how to use one of my old handles. It fit in perfectly with the rustic theme we were going for.

vintage rustic diy wedding decor, Wedding Favors filled with Coffee


I made a lot of eclectic wedding signs and props for my son's wedding and reception. Some pieces were vintage items I bought at Estate Sales, some were repurposed into something totally different. I wanted to show you a few ideas you could use at a wedding, engagement party, birthday party, etc. Of course you may have to change the wording on your own signs but... this may give you a few fun ideas - Go ahead, get creative!

HELLO SPRING! I'm in the Garden

Happy 1st day of Spring! Yippie Hooray! Hands down, my favorite time of year. I choose to ignore that it’s 31 degrees and everything is still snow covered. Somewhere under that white slushy stuff are my crocuses, tulips and daffodils. These are just a few of my favorite things...

REPURPOSED Kitchen Cabinets - Don't Toss Your Old Ones!

When we bought our "Fixer Upper" house, priority was to upgrade the kitchen. I was excited about this project and just as excited, (well almost), to repurpose the existing cabinets. They were perfectly good cabinets and there was no way we were tossing them out. Here's what we decided to do with them!

5 Minute DIY WINE RACK Burlap Sign

Ha, guess I’m in some kind of a burlap sign kind of a mood. After making the “lather, rinse, repeat” bathroom sign, I thought of my little pallet wood wine rack. It felt a little bland so, what better than a burlap rustic sign! I’ve been planning a do-over to my mini bar cart anyway. Think I’ll start with my wine rack above the mini bar. This took me all of 5 minutes

About meSo... I’m a mom, a wife, an auntie and a nana! Hubby and I own a gourmet coffee and espresso wholesale business and I also have my rustic ETSY shop. I have a nice little workshop in our home and another great workspace outside.
I’m 50(ish) years old, married, have a 29 yr. old son and a sweetie pie grand-daughter! I love being outside, working in my gardens and doing projects around the yard. Many summer evenings are reserved for hubby time on the patio with cocktails, apps (the food kind) and much needed unwind time.
I love sharing some of my DIY and repurposing ideas. On my blog, I show some of my past projects and newer ones! My projects are easy affordable ones that pretty much anyone can do. I always keep it simple and I love to repurpose my own stuff!
