Southwestern Spindle Side Tables

spindle-table-legs

  I’m prepping for Market Days this Saturday, and needed a few more pieces to fill up the booth. I had some 15″ wood rounds I bought from Lowe’s ages ago, hoping to use them for the Tractor Seat Stools. I didn’t need them then, but they sure are looking great now!   All it …

Reclaimed Railroad Tie Outdoor Coffee Table

reclaimed-tie-top

After putting the porch on the back burner for several months, one night we finally kicked ourselves into gear and made a coffee table. The rustic look fits in well with the vibe we have going on out here.   We had all the materials on hand, but they’re not too hard to source. You …

Wedding Guest Book: Modified Fancy X Bench

wedding-x-bench

  I was honored this past March to be Matron of Honor in one of my best friend’s wedding, and as a gift to the happy couple I made them a guest book bench. I wanted this one to look extra special. I started out with Ana White’s Fancy X Bench plans and made a …

Laundry Platform with Rolling Drawers

rolling-drawers-under-pedestal

  While I love my high-efficiency laundry machines, they aren’t that easy on the back. I’ve seen several versions of DIY pedestals for them, but didn’t really see what I was looking for. I didn’t want open storage for baskets as I thought that would set them up just a bit too high. And while …

Rustic Cover for an Old Mini Fridge for $25

tall-tractor-stools

  Let’s face it, mini refrigerators are ugly. Especially those from the college years that are covered in old stickers and permanent marker, which was the case with our little porch fridge. My husband actually won it at a house party in college, and it saved us later on when our big refrigerator went out …

Reclaimed Wall Mirrors

tongue-and-groove-mirror

I’m pretty bad about cycling through furniture and decor. I used to have a large IKEA wall mirror, but I sold it when we moved to our Corkwood house and didn’t have a place for it. I’ve done this a lot, sold things I couldn’t find a use for at the moment, then kicked myself …

Cedar Gallery Ledges for Books and Animals

cedar-ledges

  The nursery has a strange little inset wall next to the closet, a wall that was absolutely perfect for some of Ana’s $10 Gallery Ledges! I chose to do these in cedar, not only because they match the trim, but mainly because I didn’t feel like painting pine shelves. I’m at the point where the …

Old Table, New Leaf : Updating My Dining Area

warm-industrial-dining-room

A few weeks ago, you may remember me posting some updated kitchen/dining/living room photos along with asking some advice on my current dining set. I’d purchased the set at a consignment shop and painted it and reupholstered the seats. I loved it, without a doubt. But I wasn’t too sure I was in love with …

Rustic Ladder Photo Display

rustic-ladder-killerbdesigns

Hey guys! Miss me yet? I’ve been running around like crazy getting projects done for the house and nursery. Nesting has hit me in full force pretty early, and I’m determined to have the whole house “finished” by the time baby Caroline arrives this October. Honestly at this rate I bet I’ll be done before …

Farm Style Corrugated Tin Closet Doors with PureBond

corrugated-tin-doors

Do you remember Charlie’s Chalkboard French Style Closet Doors? Well I used the same method for the nursery closet, but decided to give it a barn-style twist! Since my theme is “Farm Fresh” I wanted a trough-like or barn feel for the doors. I found these sheets of corrugated tin at Home Depot and they …

X Base Pedestal Table from Ana White

x-table

A few weeks ago, my sister mentioned that she wanted to upgrade her hand-me-down round oak table she’d had since she graduated college. She wanted a “real” table that she picked herself, but the ones in stores were insanely expensive and nothing she was really looking for. So I offered to build her a table …

The Un-Built-In Desk: Or How to Put a Desktop on End Tables and Make It Look Awesome

pegboard-organization

So, remember when I talked about making Charlie’s Chalkboard Closet Doors, and I mentioned I had a lot of scrap material left from the PureBond sheets? After cutting down the door pieces, I had two sections that were about 15″ wide and eight feet long. When we were brainstorming ideas for the guest/playroom, Jacob said …

Chalkboard French-Style Closet Doors

french-style-chalkboard-doors

In preparation for Charlie’s little sister this fall, we are getting her big girl room ready for sleeping in. One of the last tasks (other than bolting all the furniture to the walls because I’m a paranoid freak) was to add some closet doors. Originally I hadn’t planned on any. Then one day while admiring …

Rolling Modern Porch Gate

rolling-patio-gate

Well after four thousand, five hundred and sixty-five arguments on execution (as in, how to implement rather than offing each other – though I’m sure it crossed both our minds at some point!) we *finally* have a rolling gate for our back porch! It’s so amazing to be able to shut this sucker off and …

QLine Finishing Oils and Another Striped Bench

striped-bench-details

Have you heard of QLine Finishing Oils? They recently contacted me to see if I’d like to try them out. To quote the product description, “Uno is a natural impregnation oil product made of vegetable oil and natural resin.  Used for staining and sealing wood floors, furniture and woodwork.  Uno hardens in the wood similar …

Saltbox Chicken Coop, Run, and Planter

coop-step18

Keeping chickens has recently benefitted from a huge resurgence. It’s not just a farm thing anymore, many people are choosing to raise chickens for eggs and meat in urban and suburban areas too. Recently I was browsing a major retailer’s website for furniture ideas and saw a beautifully designed coop, run and planter, all-in-one! But …

Modern Porch Railing: A How-To (kinda)

porch-steps

With the weather warming up (at least in some parts of the globe!) we were getting antsy to move away from all the indoor stuff and start working outside. I’ve seen these amazing modern style railings in magazines and online, and knew it would be perfect for us! It had the right style, rustic yet …

Slim 6 Cube Bookcase: A How-To

A friend of mine is expecting her first baby next month, and I asked her if she needed any furniture for the nursery. She asked for an Expedit style bookcase, very slim lined and white. She sent over the dimensions of the space, and I got to work! I started with a sheet of Purebond, …

Rustic Tractor Seat Bar Stools

tractor-seat-stools

Back when we were brainstorming ideas for the house, I knew I wanted tractor seat stools for the island. But I had absolutely no idea how to get there. While I focused my energy on getting the kitchen installed, trim up, and all that other important stuff, my dad was busy figuring out how to …

Reclaimed Wood Industrial Vanity

reclaimed-vanity

When we were brainstorming ideas for our master bathroom vanity, I wanted something a little out of the ordinary. Wish so much storage in our double medicine cabinet, we didn’t need a lot of concealed space for all the junk that usually gets tossed into a bathroom cabinet. In fact, that was one thing that …
