Pumpkin Sign Fall Décor from a Repurposed Wooden Paper Plate Holder

Sometimes, I find a potential project piece while thrifting and I have NO IDEA what it even is. That was what happened recently, when I stumbled across this oddly shaped wooden rack. So, I posted it on my Facebook page and asked for help identifying it. Within moments, dozens of people happily informed me that it was a paper plate holder!Read more ›

Every year, I always try and come up with one good red/white/blue project to post around July 4th– sometimes, the ideas come hot and heavy and I don’t have enough time to post them all! But then there are other years, like this year, where I struggle to find the passion to create one, given everything that’s currently going on.

Mountain Cabin Brochure Holder

A funny, but true story- I picked up this heavy wooden magazine holder two years ago. I didn’t know what I’d end up doing to or with it, but it was so heavy and well-made that I couldn’t pass it up. But, it sat in our garage for all that time…and I was just about ready to put it in our donation pile. Right before I had given up hope, though, I posted it in a fun upcycling group on Facebook and asked for DIY ideas. One of the other members said that she’d use it in her lake house to hold brochures for renters, and I had a HUGE “Duh!” moment. This would be PERFECT for the cabin in Blue Ridge!Read more ›

Barn Style Farm Sign (and Baby Goat Day!)

While on a recent Junkin’ Journey, I found a salvaged cabinet door that just screamed BARN! Even though I wasn’t sure what I’d ultimately do with it, it was just so unique and special that I nabbed it immediately. I was, however, sure of one thing- whatever I did with it, it would have *something* to do with a farm.Read more ›
