A few weeks ago while junking I came across this vintage school desk just discarded on the side of the road. I knew I had to save it, but I had no idea it was going to turn into this gem!
Hands down my favorite Christmas decoration to date! The reindeer was inspired by the urge to have one on my porch and not wanting to pay the horrific prices everywhere I looked. Plus I am pretty sure it looks way better than the see through light up ones
Do you ever look at a product and just know it is screaming to be turned into something else? This little crate I found at the thrift store was one of those! Some wood, wax and rusty wire turned him into something beyond adorable!
Yard sales and thrift stores are my favorite places in the world. Last summer I found this chair that was in rough shape, but I knew it had potential. I joined the challenge, grabbed my chalk paint, and got to work!
A while back my grandparents gave me this hunk of junk. They know better than to throw things away when they have me around to fix them and refurbish them...or just create something entirely new with them like I do in my shop.
Anyway, this side table has been my Grandfathers night stand for as long as I can remember. It has been chewed up and spit out and was in horrible condition. The edges were all chipped and the particle board was showing and looked like cotton coming out in places. I am guessing it got wet from my Grandfathers breathing machine.
But I gladly took it back to my shop. Then I let it sit there for a while just pondering what I was going to do to it. I really don't like fake wood, but it was still salvageable so I stopped putting it off and got to work.
Spring is ALMOST here and I dont know about you but all I can think about is that saying "spring has sprung and I'm so excited I wet my plants". I swear it makes me chuckle every time I see it! So today I am bringing you a fun Easter/Spring project to help you get so excited that you can wet your plants too!
I love using moss on projects and covering just about anything is fun. Today I am going to show you a super simple way to cover ANYTHING in moss without the mess. Well, maybe still messy, just not as bad as the bags or sheets of thick moss.
I have been seeing these string art creations all over blog land and I knew I had to make one, but I learned a valuable lesson! In the end using the string, nails, upcycled board (it came from a house that was built in the 1800's and was a shelf in the closet!) and glass glitter turned out beautiful! I am even giving it away on my blog!! Make sure you stop by and enter to win!
The other day I was in the mood to create something fun and beautiful for our home. Something that would represent the love we have in our home for each other, and something that would not only work to decorate for Valentines day but all year round.
I love being creative and learning new things. Join me and get crafty!
