Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

This project, my friends, was driven entirely by my obsession with one of Funky Junk Interiors’ most recent stencils. She created a Buffalo check stencil for her Old Sign Stencil Shop (affiliate link) and I have been dying to try it out. I decided to create some Buffalo check decor on a wood tray from the thrift store using her stencil. I thought it would be lovely as rustic cabin decor to use for my autumn decorating!Read more ›

Brochure Stand and Mountain Cabin Decor

Brochure Stand and Mountain Cabin Decor

This magazine rack was a thrift store find that came home with me, even though I had no plan in mind. But it was heavy and sturdy (i.e., good quality) and seemed like it was a blank canvas for a future project. It finally dawned on me that it would be PERFECT as a brochure stand in a mountain cabin that my in-laws used to own.Read more ›

Painting Hudson’s Bay Stripes on Plain White Dishes

A Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket with its iconic stripes was a mainstay in my childhood home. And while I don’t have that blanket anymore, I had a burning desire to recreate that same look. Upcycling thrift store pieces seemed like the easiest way to do so. Namely, I wondered if I could paint some plain white dishes with Hudson’s Bay stripes.

Upcycling a Boat Oar as a Nautical Coat Rack

I’ve hinted at it on Facebook and here on the blog that I would start focusing on cabin-themed projects this year. My in-laws built a GORGEOUS cabin in the North Georgia mountains, which means I get to add a new facet to my blog! And I’m kicking off that trend with this boat oar or wood paddle that I recently acquired. It was the perfect size to upcycle into a nautical coat rack for the cabin. Read more ›

It’s hard to believe, but it was way back in March of this year when I spotted a vintage snow shoe on the wall of a local shop. Even though I was in full Spring mode at the time, I snapped it up with an idea for a rustic Christmas wreath in my mind.
