Making a Hudson Bay Wool Blanket Out of Felt

Making a Hudson Bay Wool Blanket Out of Felt

As many of you know, my in-laws have a gorgeous cabin in the North Georgia mountains. Their cabin Christmas tree is always decked out in cabin style, with ornaments that celebrate fly fishing. And I always thought that an ornament that looked like a mini version of a Hudson Bay wool blanket would fit right in.Read more ›

Upcycling a Vintage Canteen with a Flannel Shirt

Upcycling a Vintage Canteen with a Flannel Shirt

Even though my book is completely and utterly finished (and at the printer as we speak), I’m STILL thinking up ways to craft with flannel. And this project started when I spotted a vintage canteen that a vintage-selling friend had posted on her Instagram page.Read more ›

Winter Cabin and Rustic Chic Decor

Winter Cabin and Rustic Chic Decor

“Thrift the Look” is one of my favorite challenges that I do as a blogger. If you’re new to my blog, then “Thrift the Look” is when I take a gorgeous photo of a home decor style and recreate it with items from the thrift store and upcycling when necessary. Today, the theme is Cabin decor; but more specifically for me, I’m working on decor for a winter cabin with a touch of rustic chic.Read more ›

Camping Decor Inspired by a Hudson Bay Wool Blanket

Camping Decor Inspired by a Hudson Bay Wool Blanket

The first time I posted a Hudson Bay Wool Blanket–inspired project, I thought of it solely as fall or winter decor. Those classic HBC blankets are made of wool, after all, right? But, a few of my readers commented that the stripes actually reminded them of summer camp. So, I decided to revisit the same idea to create some camping decor to use during the summer months.Read more ›

Making a First Aid Cabinet for the Garage

Making a First Aid Cabinet for the Garage

Ok- so, in the interest of full disclosure, I fully intended this project to be my Product Test Drive post for this month. BUT, things didn’t exactly go as planned. So, I’m putting that product “on ice”…which has a double meaning. Why? Because my plans for this wooden medicine cabinet were to transform it into a first aid cabinet for the garageRead more ›

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 one of the north Georgia cabin rentals that my in-laws own.Read more ›

Log Cabin Birdhouse from a Vintage Coin Bank

It’s been a while since I created a bird project for our yard. So, I decided to combine this year’s Log Cabin theme with an outdoors project. Since we always have nesting wrens and chickadees at our house, I had a log cabin birdhouse idea that I just couldn’t shake.Read more ›
