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!!!].

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Rustic Sign

I’ve been loving rustic signs! …I wanted one really bad! Note: The paint and Varathane used for this sign were provided by Rust-Oleum but all opinions are my own. PROGRESS: To date, we’ve painted the walls, added trim to the window, completed a countertop transformation, added a tile backsplash, painted the cabinet knobs, installed a […]

Dining Room Light Fixture Makeover {Stripping Down}

What do you do when you are on a tight budget but the light fixture (as-is) is just not cutting it? You start stripping it down… I’ve been looking for a good “before” picture of this light fixture; and I think this [picture above] is the best I’ve got (taken mid way through the Dining […]

A Holiday Dining Room Makeover ~ Room Reveal

The Dining Room Makeover is finally here…it’s been a long time coming (and just in time for the holidays)!

So lets recap… […]

DIY Noel Sign for $5!

I’ve made quite a few of these signs lately for the shop. This idea came together when I saw the “Noel, Joy and Merry” wood cut-outs at the Target dollar section for $3 each! Next, pair it with a $2 door from Habitat and paint away! A little white paint to freshen up the door, […]

DIY Wood Slice Table

I’m in love. Since the first time I saw hairpin legs, I have loved them. I didn’t purchase my hairpin legs from Modern Urban Metals, but they display this style nicely in their picture above. ************************* We recently had an overgrown cherry tree removed from our yard. It was huge, branches resting on our roof, […]

DIY Pallet Sign

At my house, you’ll see a trend…we like to incorporate the word “hope” into our decor. Like many projects, I started this project with no specific details in mind; except that I knew I wanted a pallet sign. I had a pallet that I took apart and decided to just start and see what would […]
