Farmhouse Kitchen Canisters DIY Style

There’s no doubt that we all have those projects that go sour and we’d rather not mention. Am I right? Ya know, the “just-donate-it-to-the-thrift-store-while-in-super-sleuth-mode” kinda project. I will be the first to confess I’ve given away projects I would have rather thrown in a lake. So, for some reason I felt bad for this set found at the thrift store.  Hang with me as I turn them into a fun set of farmhouse kitchen canisters. yahoo!

Upcycled Jar Hangers ~ DIY Decor

Many times I get asked how do I find ways to decorate my home on a budget. Well, the answer is pretty simple…I do it myself. I know not everyone is able to do the same, but if you are able, you should – it’s fun! Take for instance this little pile of goodies. I grabbed a couple of empty pickle jars from my recycling bin, and a few wood scraps from my stash. My goal is to turn them into upcycled jar hangers.

One of the things that happens around my house is how I will find scraps tossed in our burn box from JC working on projects that I would NEVER throw out. Big surprise, eh? haha. He recently did an amazing job building our custom kitchen range hood using some hand-carved woodwork I found from an 1800’s home. Those wood scraps above were remnants from his build that caused me to literally eeeked out loud when Read more

Farmhouse Benches with Grain Sack Stripe

When I head to the thrift store and see country blue and geese with hearts, I instantly have a flashback to 1980’s. My mom definitely added that kind of style to her decor at one point. It’s cute, but totally not my style. My last thrifting visit produced this haul and looked like someone cleaned house. For the next few projects I’m going to be transitioning these pieces into a farmhouse state. Today is all about those country blue benches becoming farmhouse benches.

Farmhouse Kitchen Storage Cubby

Gotta love it when friends and family enjoy what you do and even encourage you in your love of #trashure. haha. I mean that. Who else do I know that receives someone else’s junk and gets to play with it? It’s a challenge I welcome, even though at times I want to turn it down because of stash overload. In the case of this shelf below, I felt sorry for it. My dad brought it to me and I just had to give it a shot. Let me show you how I rebuilt it into farmhouse kitchen storage.

Repurposed Cutting Boards ~ DIY Fun

One of the classic pieces used in farmhouse style is the wooden cutting boards, particularly antique ones. However, modern day style cutting boards still get used and wore out, but maybe aren’t quite in a good state to use in your decor. Today, I’d like to show how I gave these repurposed cutting boards a whole new lease on life. Let’s get our DIY on, shall we? {{high five}}
