vintage bar stool gets makeover

Vintage Bar Stool Gets Makeover

We've had this bar stool for so long. We found it at a yard sale for $2. The guy we bought it from had no idea why we'd even want it. I guess some people don't see the potential for a makeover? I love taking old beat up things and making them pretty again, its fun to me! Of course some may say that by the looks of its makeover, I beat it up again, but now its fitting into my farmhouse decor a little better than in its former state.

I've got another simple craft for you! There is a bit of a catch though, you'll need a cutting machine to make this craft, but no worries if you don't have one because you can find MANY Etsy shops that cut vinyl for you. (Visit our blog for the link tot he Etsy shops)I've previously made one of these Happy Thanksgiving Platters in the past, you can click right here to see that one!

Fence Picket A/C Unit Cover

EDITED TO ADD: Thank you all for your concern of our unit not being able to breath. We have had our a/c man over to check it out and he says it has plenty of room to breath and he approves of the cover. :)
Do you have an ugly air conditioning unit sitting in your yard? Yes? We did too, but now we have an awesome cover up for it! We used some old wooden fence pickets to create a more eye pleasing surround for our ugly old unit. Please come on over to our blog and see how we put it together for very little money!

Fence Picket Pumpkin

I'm still using up the free fence pickets I told you about right HERE. What I've got to show you today is another one of those really fun and easy projects that I love to do. Guess what? The best part is, it was FREE for me to make because I just used scraps of wood we had on hand! I actually made this little cutie all by myself with no help from my honey, its that easy! :)I used some left over pieces of fence pickets but you could also use pallet boards as well. My pumpkin only has two panels, but I think it would look cute with more, and smaller panels too.
