Farmhouse Hutch with Vintage Green Pottery

The Christmas décor has been put away and it’s time to decorate for winter. I loved displaying my vintage punch bowl collection along with my vintage Santa boots on my farmhouse hutch for Christmas. After putting these things away, I wanted to use this hutch to display another collection, this time some of my vintage […]

Ammunition Crate Table

I’m joining my Power Tool Challenge Team gals for another fun challenge.  This month our theme is modify and I turned a cold war era ammunition crate into a side table.     Why did I choose this project?  Well, there happened to be a stack of these ammunition crates in our basement and I […]

Mid-Century Yard Sale Finds

Over Labor Day weekend I happened upon two yard sales and found some great things! I haven’t been to many yard sales this season because we’ve spent nearly every weekend at the lake and not in town where yard sales are plentiful. Our morning lake routine includes driving to Smith Mountain Lake State Park to […]

Antique Post Card Display

I love using the antique post cards that I mostly inherited as a part of my decor.  Over the years Mr. SP and I have collected many post cards from Lynchburg and Central Virginia but we’ve never displayed them so that they could be enjoyed.  I’m joining my Farmhouse Friends group to share my antique […]

Pedestal Bowl Makeover – Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge

It’s time for another thrift store makeover!  For this month’s Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge I made over a wooden pedestal bowl that I found at Goodwill.  After showing this piece to some friends at school, we all agreed that it is from the 70’s and its two most common uses were for a nut bowl […]

Vintage Ladle Upcycle – Farmhouse Style

My farmhouse friends and I are back with another round of farmhouse inspired projects. Farmhouse style can be interpreted many ways and I loved the projects shared last month.  If you missed last month, I shared how I used a vintage window from Black Dog Salvage to frame Popular Science and Popular Mechanics magazine covers […]

Vintage Monday – 1938 Wedding Shower Presents

Back in April I started a new series, Vintage Monday, where I share vintage things that I’ve inherited, purchased, or like especially.  The last  Vintage Monday I shared a vintage egg crate used for shipping eggs from the farm to family in Washington, DC.  Today I am sharing some of my grandmother’s 1938 wedding shower […]

Guest Room Decor at Smith Mountain Lake

Earlier this week I shared the window wall art that I made for a guest room at our Smith Mountain Lake home.  Today I’m sharing the rest of that bedroom’s decor. This guest room will primarily be used by my father-in-law, a retired engineer and veteran.  The room’s theme is Americana and I’ve tried to […]

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 […]

Three Tiered Shelf Makeover

A few months ago we purchased some vintage things from the estate sale of a former neighbor.  One item that I purchased with the intent of putting in my shop was a three tiered wooden shelf.  Now that I’ve given this shelf a makeover, I’ve decided that instead of selling it, I will keep it […]
