DIY Serving Tray in 20 Minutes

I needed a serving tray, pronto! I typically gravitate toward the rustic, farm house sorta style so I started rummaging through my garage for scrap wood [scrap wood = FREE!!!]. I found this piece and it was a pretty decent size, it fit a coffee cup and a few other little things…so hey, I figured […]

Brighten Your Way Into Spring with Chesapeake Bay Candle

Thank you to Chesapeake Bay Candle for sponsoring today’s post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. It’s be a very rainy, cold winter!

Apollo Box, celebrate the act of discovery

~ Apollo Box ~ I’m pretty sure my favorite thing to do is get up before anyone else and have my morning coffee. Doesn’t that sound nice? It does to me. Fresh ground coffee {the smell, yum} and a warm cup! Solitude. The Yami Coffee Grinder and Mugr Coffee Mug displayed in this post were […]

Amazingly Chippy Dresser with Old Fashioned Milk Paint

Didn’t this dresser turn out amazingly chippy?! The paint used was provided by the Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company, the my high opinions of it are all my own. I really do love milk paint!

Kitchen Story It’s been nearly 2 years since we purchased our home. I feel like we’ve been doing a great job putting our personal touch (on nearly every square inch) of the house; but now it’s time for the kitchen! Oh, the kitchen is the last big eye sore and I cannot wait! The counter […]

How To Make Junk Cool: Upcycled Coat Rack

With all the projects I have been making for the shop, Holly and I thought it would be fun to host a couple series in 2017. One being “How to Make Junk Cool” and the other “Before and Afters”. With dresser makeovers and chair upholstering, a tutorial seems redundant and unnecessary, but it’s still fun […]
