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 ›

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 ›

Book Decor with Flannel Shirts for Cozy Home Decor

I think it’s high time I create another flannel project, don’t you? The weather is finally feeling like Fall and I am craving all the cozy plaid.

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 ›

Creating a Brochure Holder as Mountain Cabin Decor

Creating a Brochure Holder as 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 holder / brochure stand in my in-laws’ cabin in North Georgia. Not only would it be functional for their rental property, but I could transform it into mountain cabin decor / lodge decor at the same time. Read more ›

DIY Cabin Decor with Hudson Bay Stripes on Plain White Dishes

DIY Cabin Decor with Hudson Bay Stripes on Plain White Dishes

A Hudson 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 Bay stripes.

Upcycling a Boat Oar as a Nautical Coat Rack

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 got from Maliasmark. It was the perfect size to upcycle into a nautical coat rack for the cabin. Read more ›

Vintage Snow Shoe as a Rustic Christmas Wreath

Vintage Snow Shoe as a Rustic Christmas Wreath

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.
