Valentines Day Decorations with Vintage Valentines & Antique Rug Beater

Valentines Day Decorations with Vintage Valentines & Antique Rug Beater

So…Valentine’s Day isn’t much of a holiday in our house, truth be told. We’re pretty lovely-dovey all the time (I know, go ahead and roll your eyes) and I NEVER decorate for it. But…I had a Valentines Day decorations idea rattling around in my head that just wouldn’t quit. AND it involved something I’d never repurposed or upcycled before: an antique, heart-shaped rug beater.  Read more ›

Wood Clip Board for Garage Storage or Shed Organization

Wood Clip Board for Garage Storage or Shed Organization

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a TERRIBLE habit of losing my gardening gloves. After some yard work, I’d come into the garage, rip off my gloves, and fling them wherever I could before going inside. It has led to countless trips to the hardware store to buy new gloves – wasteful in money, time, and well…gloves!

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 ›

Shabby Chic Wall Decor with Lace Doilies

Shabby Chic Wall Decor with Lace Doilies

Long before I even started my blog, I found the most amazing panel from a wooden door. It was covered in layers of chippy paint. I used it’s beauty to inspire the painted bedroom furniture we now own. AND, it inspired the shabby chic wall decor / window pane decor that would ultimately kick off my upcycling blog. I know it sounds crazy, but it is the absolute truth.Read more ›
