DIY Wreath

January 7, 2016 at 11:41 am (Projects) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

Winter makes me a little stir crazy. Luckily Pinterest has many many cures for that! Enter my new wreath project. Bonus: I love a project that has quick and easy payoff!😉

I picked up a wire wreath form at Joann craft store for a few dollars. I also grabbed a remnant of burgundy fabric and a pack of colored leaf print fabric squares. I cut tons and tons and tons of fabric strips about 5 inches long. Then I tied the oodles of strips in knots around the wire wreath form.  I also added some strips of burlap to give a rustic look. Simple.

Here is a close up of my strips of fabric.

I also painted a wood letter T to hang in the center if I choose.

And for the winter season I hung a seasons greetings basket in the center that I already had. Cute, no?:)

Yellow Chair Love

Maybe it’s because yellow is so pretty. Or maybe it’s because I am already itching for spring. Either way, I am loving these bits of yellow…

Little Key Project

April 28, 2015 at 10:58 am (Uncategorized)

I love a good project. Even more so, I love a good quick project. So when I saw a photo on Pinterest of old keys bent into hooks I got an idea…

I love keys and have been collecting random ones since I was a kid. My oh-so-amazing man fired and bent 8 keys for me. He also had a piece of pine wood with bark. He burnt the wood and then helped me hang the keys and seal the whole thing. Now we have a rack for hanging all of our many keys! It turned out so cute and rustic!

Coffee Table Fix Up

December 14, 2014 at 2:30 pm (Projects) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

It’s taken me over a year. But it’s finally done. I have a coffee table that I love, finally.

Before:

Perfect shape to hold lots of treasures,  but outdated color and in rough shape.

I sanded the table and then painted I’m gray (shock!) And then roughed it up. The top got a coat of a darker gray, and the whole table was finished with paste wax to protect it.  I had to fix the drawer, but ended up keeping the old knobs. What do you think?

New Old Dresser

December 13, 2014 at 8:35 am (Projects) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This old house has plenty of character, but really lacks storage.  I get by because no one is using the spare bedroom currently, so outgrown baby items, my vacuum, and luggage all live in there. The bathroom, however,  is still in desperate need of storage. I still use my old quilt rack to hang towels. I love this, but not so much when towels have to be stacked 7 high because there is no cupboard for the extras. So, I set out to buy a large old dresser to refinish, in hopes that it could serve as storage in the bathroom.

I started with this guy for $40 on a garage sale:

image

Great vintage bones, ugly paint job. So I  sanded, patched one spot, and painted him gray.

image

He was already looking gorgeous. Then I added some charcoal tinted furniture paste wax.

image

I was loving it. The hardest part was picking hardware. I didn’t want the hardware to pull too much attention, so I ended up choosing twisted iron pulls that reminded me of the Threshers, and little black knobs for the top. Now he’s finished and gorgeous. Oh, and one more dilemma. Do I really put it in the barhroom, or do I give it to Brantley as he transitions to his big boy furniture? OR, do I sell it?😉
