Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Caddy & Bakeware Storage

Magazine racks are a pretty common sight at thrift stores, aren’t they? I’ve certainly seen my fair share of them, and have even repurposed them before. So, I really had no intentions of upcycling another magazine rack so soon…but upon spotting this behemoth on a thrifting adventure a few weeks back, well…I simply couldn’t say no. With it’s tall straight sides and the desperate need for a makeover, it just screamed “kitchen caddy” to me because it was perfect for holding bakeware.Read more ›

Primitive Decor with an Old Washboard Turned Farmhouse Frame

Whenever I stumble upon an antiques mall that has a “Clearance Section” I am like a heat-seeking missile with one goal in mind- to find a broken vintage treasure (on the cheap!) to become my next repurposing project. And so, when my eyes fell upon this old washboard that was missing the actual washboard, I knew it was a moment of crafting kismet. It screamed primitive decor to me and I wanted to upcycle it into farmhouse wall decor.Read more ›
