DIY Rustic Carrots from Upcycled Furniture Legs

Spring is just around the corner and I am so excited to see the signs of life in my garden beds. I know some of you already have full blooming, or are even headed into winter on the other side of the world. However, here in Ohio, we are just starting to see buds and smiling cold-weather blooms, like crocus pop out. Today, I’m going to take this misfit bunch of furniture legs and turn then into some spring-like DIY rustic carrots. (giveaway alert!)

There’s a story behind this loot. My friend, Mandy, sent me a picture asking if I wanted these wood turnings and legs. Me…”come to mama.” Right?? I mean, who would turn this down?

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.

Most might see a pile of trash, but this would-be junk is perfect for my vision. In this “mess” is a vintage cake pan, a piece of pallet wood, and crib rail spindles. Same as in my last project, I use my drill to
