DIY 2×4 Bench

It’s once again time for the Power Tool Challenge Team to share project made with power tools.  Last month our theme was “Repurposed / Upcycled” and I shared a tennis racket table.  This month the theme is “Patios and Porches” and for it I’m sharing how to make a DIY 2×4 bench.   Mr. SP […]

Window Wall Decor with Vintage Magazine Covers

I think it is safe to say that just about everyone is currently loving farmhouse style.  Farmhouse style might make you think of the style made popular by Chip and JoAnna by way of their show, Fixer Upper, or you might be like me and when you think of farmhouse style think of your grandmother’s […]

DIY Bird Feeder Using a Vintage Snack Set

This week has been spring break and I’ve spent my time getting my home and garden ready for spring.  In celebration of spring, I’m teaming up with some blogging friends to share spring decor with you today.  Instead of sharing spring decor inside, I’m sharing how I’m decorating my flower beds outside with DIY bird […]

My Magazine Feature!

Vintage Teacher’s Desk Makeover

It’s time for another round of Themed Furniture Makeover Day.  Once a month a group of blogging friends challenge each other to makeover a piece of furniture using a theme; this month’s theme is black.  For a long while I was stumped for a project for this theme and then I happened across a vintage […]

Pierced Wood Candle Holder for Halloween

I really enjoy coming up with a project to match each month’s theme.  For August the theme was jigsaw and I made dog shaped sign for my classroom door.  My poor […]
