Mountain Cabin Brochure Holder

Mountain Cabin Brochure Holder

A funny, but true story- I picked up this heavy wooden magazine holder two years ago. I didn’t know what I’d end up doing to or with it, but it was so heavy and well-made that I couldn’t pass it up. But, it sat in our garage for all that time…and I was just about ready to put it in our donation pile. Right before I had given up hope, though, I posted it in a fun upcycling group on Facebook and asked for DIY ideas. One of the other members said that she’d use it in her lake house to hold brochures for renters, and I had a HUGE “Duh!” moment. This would be PERFECT for the cabin in Blue Ridge!Read more ›

From Bank to Birdhouse: A Log Cabin for the Birds

It’s been a while since I created a bird project for our yard…so I decided to combine this year’s “Cabin” theme with an outdoors project. Since we always have nesting wrens and chickadees at our house, I wanted to make them a new, alternative abode.Read more ›

Hudson’s Bay Inspired Winter Décor

Hudson’s Bay Inspired Winter Décor

The colorful stripes of a Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket are burned into my childhood memory, thanks to a great-uncle in Canada. He had gifted one to my parents as a wedding gift, and it came in awfully handy during the classic Chicago winters of my childhood. And while the blanket itself is long gone, I was able to purchase an amazing tote bag using one that had been repurposed! Read more ›

Hook, Line, and Sink-Oar: A Coat Rack

Hook, Line, and Sink-Oar: A Coat Rack

I’ve hinted at it on Facebook…and again in my Best of 2016 post- the idea of cabin-themed projects this year. My in-laws built a GORGEOUS cabin in the North Georgia mountains (and it’s available to rent!)- which means I get to add a new facet to my blog! Whether decorative, functional, or both, I will periodically do cabin-themed projects…and when the cabin is done and ready, I’ll be sure to start including links and pictures so you can see it!Read more ›

Here we are- in JANUARY- with the holidays behind us and a new year before us.

So, I decided to revisit an old favorite- flannel- with a new project…and it just so happens to be my January contribution to The Good Life blog, as well.Read more ›
