DIY Picket Fence Inspired Baby Gate

Welcome back friends.  We have way more gates in our house than any normal house should have.  But this house wasn’t built for children.  We have had one of those “cheapy” gates from Walmart or Target up on the doorway going from the kitchen into our laundry room/stairway to the basement.  I worked so hard […]

Repurposing A Wooden Chicken Nester For The Porch

It’s no secret that we moved to a farm, got chickens and try to consider ourselves small town, country livin’ folk.  AND it’s no secret that I love the old farm/country type stuff.  So, when my mother-in-law found this wooden chicken nester, she gave me first dibs and knew I would probably take it and […]

Rustic Shelves Using Barn Wood

As a mother, we often try and do the right things to keep ourselves ahead of the game.  Get stuff packed up and cleaned up the night before, makes LOTS of To-do lists, set out clothes the night before, plan to bring a purse full of wipes just in case and the list goes on and […]

Chunky Chalkboard/Magnetic Board

I was out shopping around at a local hardware store, and my eye caught this wood.  It was rustic and the cuts weren’t straight.  My kind of rustic!!  So I had to go back a week later and take another look.  It was still pretty, so I bought a few pieces.  Not sure for what […]

Refinished Incubator With An Oil Finish

A few months back, I picked up this old worn out Incubator.  It had some serious potential!!  Other than the legs being chewed up a little, it was in great shape.  My idea??  What a great coffee table, right!? I’m still trying out other finishes on pieces of furniture.  I’ve never tried an oil finish.  […]

Unique Shelf with Crates

I have to say I’m pretty excited about this project!!  Awhile ago, while browsing pictures online somewhere, I came across a picture of a living room.  In the corner it had a shelf type thingy and it had a few tiers on it.  Crates were not used to make it but it sure gave me […]
