My First Makeunder: DIY Library Card Catalog

My First Makeunder: DIY Library Card Catalog

Y’all know I love me some spray paint…or any paint, for that matter. And usually when I work on a thrift store piece, it involves ADDING paint- but not this time. On one of my typical thrifting adventures, I found this mini chest of drawers. I didn’t really fancy the painted fruit “still life” that covered it, but I DID fancy the hypothesis that I could undo the paint job and make it more my style.Read more ›

Bread Basket Weaving- Farmhouse Style

Bread Basket Weaving- Farmhouse Style

Sometimes you go thrifting and find absolutely nothing…but then other times, your cart simply isn’t big enough for the bounty. Maybe the latter part is a slight exaggeration, but I did feel like I struck thrifter’s gold the other day. Or maybe thrifter’s silver is more like it! Because, my friends- someone cleaned out their grandmother’s (or mother’s) silver bread basket collection and dropped them off at the ole’ Goodwill.Read more ›

Upcycling Alchemy: Turning Fiber Baskets into “Metal”

Upcycling Alchemy: Turning Fiber Baskets into “Metal”

Ok, I have to admit- after the exciting results from my DIY Windmill Project, I became obsessed with the spray paint I used. And so, while this newest project isn’t exactly complicated- it’s one of those “DUH!” projects that is ridiculously simple, but warrants a post nonetheless.Read more ›

Revamped Ceiling Fan Blades, Farmhouse-Style

Revamped Ceiling Fan Blades, Farmhouse-Style

Mr. Seasongoods and I are slowly (and I mean SLOWLY) giving our home office a face lift. The first order of business was replacing the outdated squeaky ceiling fan…and when we did so, I, OF COURSE, saved the ceiling fan blades for a project. I had a farmhouse-style idea that seemed a little crazy…but had a lot of potential.Read more ›

Fake It ‘Til You Make… Grain Sack Sachets

Fake It ‘Til You Make… Grain Sack Sachets

Vintage French grain sacks are SO desirable…and therefore pricey if you’re lucky enough to even find one. But that quintessential look- either the offset stripes in red & blue, or faded print/text- can be replicated with some crafty ingenuity. So, I headed out to the thrift store with a defined agenda- find something in the linens section that could pass as linen/burlap/grain sack material.Read more ›

Shotgun!: Country Living Fair 2016 (Lebanon, Tennessee)

Shotgun!: Country Living Fair 2016 (Lebanon, Tennessee)

A couple of years ago, I attended my first Country Living Fair in Atlanta and just had a terrific time. If you’ve never been to a CLF before, here’s what you need to know: they are HUGE events and it’s impossible to see everything in one day…and the booths are amazing, so you’ll be plunking down some hard-earned dollars for unique treasures that you just may never find again. So when I had the chance to attend this year’s Fair in Lebanon, Tennessee (just outside of Nashville), I jumped at the chance!Read more ›
