Updated Small Crate

Updated Small Crate

This was a simple project that didn't take long to complete. My friend gave me the small crate and said, "do something with it". It sat in the garage for a few weeks before I decided what to do with it. Then it became this:

Stool becomes Plant Stand

Stool Becomes Plant Stand

I found a stool that someone threw out. Of course I had to pick it up. It sat in my garage for quiet some time before we moved and I was close to getting rid of it, but choose to put it in the new garage. 

So the other day, as I was cleaning in the garage, I found the stool and thought I could finally fix it and make a plant stand out of it.

DIY Garage Tire Rack

DIY Garage Tire Rack

When we were in Vermont earlier this month, my son was trying to clean up his garage for winter. He had 8 snow tires that were taking up too much space and asked what can we do with them.We tossed around some ideas and then I looked on Pinterest and saw a hanging tire rack and he said, yes, that works.

Now all my hubby had to do was figure out how to make it and he did.

Updated Rocking Chairs

Updated Rocking Chairs

When we purchased our new home, they left two rocking chairs on the front porch.  The chairs were sturdy so we kept them. However, they did not go with the new paint color of the house.

Kitchen Makeover - Part 4 Final

Sorry, it has been awhile since my last installment of my kitchen makeover. I want to share the completed kitchen and how much it cost. 

The kitchen is finally done, almost. A couple of things still need to be done, but for now that's OK. For some reason, hubby is OK with almost done. "I will get to it", is his statement. Oh me!

Chalk Painting a Laminate Side Table

Normally, I work with wood pieces that I either stain or paint. However, I found this side table which is not beautiful or even good wood, but solid and somehow it called to me. Maybe because it was so cheap - $1.

At first, I wasn't sure what to do with it since it was laminate. I have used a lot of chalk paint on pieces, so thought why not? What harm could it do?

How to Unify Mismatched Drawer Pulls!

Do you have  mismatched drawer pulls lying around?

Does it seem like you never have the right number of them when you need them for a project?

I hear you because that was exactly my situation for my cabinet doors in the barn. Last week I showed you the new cabinets and granite in place. If you missed that, you can see all the problems I had with that here.

Doily Dresser Scarf

I realize that I am posting another doily project but as I said before, I love doilies. This particular project was done last fall and you saw some of it on the side table in my spare bedroom. I wanted to show you how I made it.

I have seen this done with doilies stitched together by themselves, but I wanted to put a based with mine. So I started with a piece of a lace curtain. I cut it the size of the top of my nightstand.

Here is the backside of the topper. Once I had the base cut, I began to place doilies on the lace.

I didn't fill in all areas. I did add various pieces of lace on top of the doilies. Once I liked the layout, I began to stitch the pieces down. I just stitched them on.

Although I liked the look, I wanted more, so I added lace pieces down the sides of the top.

I pinned all the pieces of lace to the top and then stitched them on my sewing machine. Still not enough, I add a piece of lace over these to make it look more finished.

I love how it turned out and it looks great on the night stand.

This project was a great way to use up some of those doilies I collect and all of the lace pieces I have in my stash.

A Floppy Valentine

Some of you might remember that by the end of the 1980s, the 5¼-inch disks had been superseded by the 3½-inch disks for computers. By the mid-1990s, the 5¼-inch drives had virtually disappeared, as the 3½-inch disk became the predominant floppy disk. The advantages of the 3½-inch disk were its smaller size and its plastic case, which provided better protection from dirt and other environmental risks.

Simple LOVE Sign

Many of you have been posting wonderful Valentine's Day ideas. I am not doing too much this year since I will be out of town during that time. I have some decorations from last year, but wanted something new. While cleaning in the garage, I came across these old rulers and this board. Just maybe?

Spice rack goes to school

While visiting my daughter in LA, we stopped by her school (she teaches 5th grade). I was checking out her classroom and noticed a spice rack. She had purchased it at a garage sale, but her house had a built in spice rack. What to do with it?

Heart Vase Holder

Memorial weekend is ready to begin and we are trying to get the deck ready for company and cookouts. Why is it that we always seem to finally finish those projects that we have been putting off until right before we are supposed to have company? I don't know about you, but I seem to do that a lot. It gives me that extra push I needed.

As we started to prepare for cleaning the deck, as usual, I wanted to add some additional decor and this heart vase holder was one of them.

Beadboard Valentine

 Last  week as I was cleaning out my barn, I found many small pieces of wood trim. If you saw My Unordinary Valentine, you know that I used the trim pieces to make that valentine. I found a piece of bead board that we used in the bathroom. My husband cut this piece wrong and we were going to throw it out, but I thought it might make another valentine for the front door at our other house. This one is a more traditional valentine.
