Rustic Wooden Crates from Old Drawers

Rustic Wooden Crates from Old Drawers

This is one of those ideas that has been rattling around in my head for a while, and I’ve finally set aside time to give it a go. See, last year, I repurposed an old drawer into a potting bench and endeavored to recreate the look of an old fruit crate with wood stain. It was at that moment that I wondered if I could upcycle some old drawers (of a slightly different shape) into rustic wooden crates for easy farmhouse decor.Read more ›

Upcycling a Wicker Picnic Basket into a Magazine Box for Christmas Magazines

Upcycling a Wicker Picnic Basket into a Magazine Box for Christmas Magazines

This, my friends, is what I like to call a “Post-Christmas Christmas Project”, if that makes any sense. It all started with this wicker picnic basket that I found on a thrift store shelf. I thought it had the cutest shape (like a small suitcase) and I chuckled over how dainty it seemed…compared to normal picnic baskets. It was, in fact, not much larger than a magazine (length- and width-wise, not depth-wise). And that’s when I decided it would be PERFECT for my endless collection of Christmas magazines.

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 ›

Farm Sign and Country Wall Decor on a Cabinet Door

While on a Junkin’ Journey to Blue Ridge, GA, I found a cabinet door / cupboard door that just screamed BARN! It would be perfect for upcycling into a farm sign or country wall decor, give how much it resembled a red barn. So, I snapped it up and brought it home with me. Read more ›

Loose Leaf Tea Strainers as Christmas Ornaments

Loose Leaf Tea Strainers as Christmas Ornaments

Over my thrifting and vintage-shopping adventures, I had accumulated a handful of loose lea tea strainers in different shapes and sizes. For whatever reason, I couldn’t stop buying them, especially when I’d spot one that was yet a different shape.Read more ›

Outdoor Wall Decor for a Tool Shed with Hex Signs

Outdoor Wall Decor for a Tool Shed with Hex Signs

Funny story…so, while I was out thrifting one day, I came across these two hex signs (Pennsylvania Dutch folk art). I didn’t actually know the term “hex signs” at the time, but I snapped them up with the intention of reselling them. But then I had a thought…What if I upcycled these into barn-inspired outdoor wall decor for our tool shed? Read more ›

Suet Feeder in a Coffee Mug

Suet Feeder in a Coffee Mug

I love to feed the wild birds in my yard all year long, especially during the cold winter months. So I decided to make a suet feeder that would keep them fat, happy, and healthy through the cold winter. And to keep it extra interesting (and very Sadie-esque), I decided to try my hand at making homemade bird suet that I would pour in a coffee mug.

Fall Table Runner with Flannel Shirts and Lace Ribbon

Fall Table Runner with Flannel Shirts and Lace Ribbon

Back in early Spring when I created my Dyed Doily Table Runner, I was already envisioning an autumn version- with doilies dyed to look like chrysanthemums. AND, I even bought some vintage doilies that had orange and gold hues for the Fall table runner. I was *convinced* that that was the plan. But as time marched on, I started envisioning a cozier version – one that used flannel shirts and lace ribbon.Read more ›

Coastal Wall Decor from a Thrift Store Book

Coastal Wall Decor from a Thrift Store Book

A thrift store book and a collage photo frame (or multi photo frame) aren’t typically related or even found near each other in your average thrift store. But, I decided to combine the two into one easy project that anyone can do. And even though my result was coastal wall decor, the theme and style could change depending on the book you use!
