The Cob Box Book Case {Revamped Family Heirloom}
This is the story of a cob box. Two months ago, I didn't know there was a special "cob box" in our family, let alone what one even was! I happened upon this magnificent chippy old wood crate while digging through the treasures in my Aunt Linda's shed last t...
I happened upon this magnificent chippy old wood crate while digging through the treasures in my Aunt Linda's shed last time I was in Iowa. I also got locked in panic mode when I climbed into their old trailer to get this baby out and awoke a large opossum. I nearly wet myself being stuck in ...

Hinges and Handles and Chalkboard Paint! {Repurposed Cupboard Door}
When my sister bought a big old fixer upper (yes, it must run in the family!), her and her husband completely gutted the old kitchen.  I inherited a few of the awesome old vintage cupboard doors.  I love the rustic black wood handles on them! Now I know I r...

The Two Tone (former) Sewing Cabinet

Oh my GOODNESS I was bummed out when my little boy brought me this favorite pair of shorts and said he tore a big hole in the behind of them. My patching abilities are not too swell so I decided to take a different route. Cuz ya know, I can't just throw something away. It's not in me!

Repurposed Headboard {Winging Projects!}

This place that I get so sidetracked at! I'd go to the pole barn to get something and end up wandering through a different building where I'd come across a gorgeous old table propped upped in a dark cobweb-filled corner. Or a stack of crates in the upstairs of the "apple storage shed".

The Shabby Harlequin Chair
I think this post speaks for itself so I'm going to use few words.   I'm one of those "super extrovert" people one day, and "somewhat introvert" the next day. And since yesterday was one of those "extro" days, I don't feel like being wordy today! :) Almost-...
I'm a fancy shmancy, country bumpkin hick, obsessed with rummaging through garage sales to produce a dramatic "BEFORE AND AFTER". Sorry, not alot of detailed tutorials, since usually I don't know what on earth I'm doing! I'm a wife, mother of three precious munchkins, and live with paint under ...
