Easter Cross made from Repurposed Materials

Earlier this week, I showed you my farmhouse metal art that came from repurposing a couple of quirky thrift store finds. At that time, I promised I would show you what I did with the other antique table leg I had left of a set. Here is my stash for today that I’m going to turn into an Easter cross (since the glorious holiday is fast-approaching), and because it’s Power Tool Challenge time! Woot! Check out the end of the post for my blogger friend’s projects too.

DIY Tiered Stand from Repurposed Junk

You know I have a stash of trashure and I have been trying to make more room around here by creating more of the things I have had planned in my head. For instance, I have had a collection of wood turnings, pie pans, and cake pans since summer and have been waiting for the time to put them to use. Today, I want to show you how to make a DIY tiered stand using repurposed materials because it’s Power Tool Challenge time. Yay!

I mean, who doesn’t love to have extra storage for their collections, fruits and veggies, and whatever you’d love to have off your surfaces cluttering up space? Just so you know, there are several tutorials out in Blogland. Some that use dishes, bowls, and so much more. I don’t plant to reinvent the wheel here, but you can check those out on my Pinterest pin board.

DIY: Reclaimed Wood Fall Harvest Sign

Fall is just around the corner and it’s one of my favorite seasons. For me, living in farm country, it means harvest time! All the wonders of creation performing their grand finale and we get to reap the benefit of such splendor. There’s nothing like a cup of hot cider on a cool fall evening, a hearty pile of pumpkins, or a long hayride with our loved ones. That’s what I envisioned when deciding what to create for this month’s Power Tool Challenge. (there’s all sorts of DIY goodies for you at the bottom of this post!) Here is my treat to you, a fall harvest sign.
