Upcycling a Wire Bread Basket into Vintage Farmhouse Decor

Upcycling a Wire Bread Basket into Vintage Farmhouse Decor

I struck thrifter’s gold the other day (or, more like thrifter’s silver) when I spotted a wire bread basket on the Goodwill shelves. In fact, I spotted SEVERAL wire bread baskets. They were perfectly tarnished (i.e., patina!) and in need of a new purpose in life. As I studied the collection of wire baskets, I pondered the idea of transforming them into vintage farmhouse decor.

Windmill Decor using Ceiling Fan Blades

Windmill Decor using Ceiling Fan Blades

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 The first order of business was replacing the outdated squeaky ceiling fan.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 saved the ceiling fan blades for a project- of course! I had this idea for transforming them into windmill decor or a half windmill wall decor.Read more ›

30+ Upcycling Ideas and Projects for Farmhouse Decor

DIY Table Lamp from Architectural Salvage: Porch Baluster

DIY Table Lamp from Architectural Salvage: Porch 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 ›

Rustic Planter with a Galvanized Bucket and Antique Brass Faucet

Rustic Planter with a Galvanized Bucket and Antique Brass Faucet

I first noticed bucket and faucet planters at a high-end garden shop while on a shopping trip years ago. As charming as it was, though, the price was a little steep. I had a sneaking suspicion, however, that I could recreate the same look with a galvanized bucket and an antique brass faucet. I just needed to find the right pieces for my soon-to-be rustic planter / metal planter.Read more ›
