Make Your Own Breadboard

Make Your Own Breadboard

  Today I want to show you how to make your own breadboard!  Really, there’s nothing quite like a real vintage bread board. They hold so much character from use and the wear of time. You can find bread boards at antique shops, estate sales and auctions, and on Etsy. A larger sized bread board […]

Embellished Glass Bottles with Vintage Flair

Embellished Glass Bottles with Vintage Flair

I’ve wanted some new embellished glass bottles for home decor, but they’re more fun to make than buy.  Plus you can decorate them exactly how you want without having to run to a dozen different stores looking for the perfect style.  I started by buying a couple of bottles from Hobby Lobby during a half […]

DIY Rust

DIY Rust

DIY Rust! Now my husband would say “Are you stark raving mad? Who in their right mind would willingly rust metal” Of course, living in a beach house down by the sea, rust is often more of an aggravation for us. Everything metal, both inside and outside rusts. . . think light bulbs, door hardware, […]

Chippy Solar Chandelier

This week, my hubby and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.  By today’s standards…that’s considered a long time.  I guess being married to that long…you sort of get pretty relaxed, and sometimes forget to be romantic.  Many years ago, we found a chandelier in an old abandoned house.  Even then, I had a strange […]

I decided to go with somewhat of a Sunshine theme in there since yellow is my favorite color and so cheery on the many gray […]

Little Bit of Honey Sign

Little Bit of Honey Sign

At a recent farm market event, my daughter was tempted to buy a cute Honey 4 Sale sign she saw, but I talked her out of it by promising to make one for her. I started with a plain old wooden cutting board that I bought at Goodwill for one dollar. I started by painting […]

Re-Purposed Fire Pit Stand

Re-Purposed Fire Pit Stand

Tucked away in our back yard, I’ve been hiding this:   It’s an old fire pit stand.  The fire bowl used to sit on top of it until we wore a hole right through it. My husband was all set to throw it out to the curb but I just couldn’t do it. The little […]
