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 The first order of business was replacing the outdated squeaky ceiling fan…and when we did so, I, OF COURSE, saved the ceiling fan blades for a project.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 ›

Goodwill Blogging: From Cutting Board to Trendy Tray

Goodwill Blogging: From Cutting Board to Trendy Tray

November is here and Thanksgiving is right around the corner! It’s also time to reveal the latest project I created for The Good Life Blog , which is the DIY/Fashion/Upcycling blog affiliated with my local Goodwill stores. But since my own blog is a chronicle of everything I make, I also post these monthly projects here.

Anyway, with the holidays on my mind, I wanted to create something decorative but also functional for entertaining guests. But I’m not too keen on spending a lot of money right before Christmas. So, what’s an upcycling girl to do? Go to Goodwill of course! With home décor on my mind, I spied this beat up kitchen cutting board on the shelf during a recent thrifting adventure.

Gardening Garb Clip Board

Gardening Garb Clip Board

I will be the first to admit that this project is pretty darn simple. But it evolved from a very real need- actually, a *few* very real needs. First, I was in my crafting room and emerged determined to use up some of my supplies…and second, I have a TERRIBLE habit of ripping off my gardening gloves in the garage, tossing them about, and then having a devil of a time finding them again.

So here we are- with a simple, but hopefully very useful project using salvaged wood, vintage clothespins, and some picture hanging wire.Read more ›

DIY Table Lamp from Architectural Salvage: Baluster

DIY Table Lamp from Architectural Salvage: Baluster

Many moons ago, I had spotted some gorgeous- and I mean STUNNING- lamps at a highfalutin antiques shop in Cashiers, North Carolina. Constructed from old porch balusters (the spindle’s more robust cousin), they were striking…and strikingly expensive. I went from defeated to determined, though, when Jon whispered to me in the shop, “We can make those.”Read more ›

Fancified Feed Sack

Fancified Feed Sack

All of my vintage-loving friends have a special affinity for old linens…whether it’s cute embroidered hand towels, pretty crocheted doilies, or colorfully kitsch tablecloths, we always paw through them in shops. The same goes for old grain, feed, and flour sacks- cotton, linen, or burlap, we just seem to love them all.

I have to give credit where credit is due, and Country Living magazine came up with this first. I fell in love with this project the moment I saw it, and I knew it was a craft I needed to attempt. Our dining room needs more wall décor, and an embroidered feed sack (or 2) would be fitting (dining room…feed sack…) and quirky.Read more ›
