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.

Do you ever wonder what you should have your eye out for while garage sailing or in thrift stores? In my typical jaunts a must for me is to spy anything wooden. When it’s made from wood, it can be altered to your heart’s content and can be transformed with some DIY fun. Check out this wooden doll cradle I found on one of my latest adventures.

It’s handmade from pine and looks sturdy enough from the pictures, but I had to tell my kids to leave it be until I worked on it. It was wobbly and not very safe for a small child. But…if you look at it, you’ll see it’s in the the raw. Perfect for a little mama & daughter project, wouldn’t you say? Read more

Antique Lyre Coffee Table Rescued & Restored

Back a month or so ago, I shared how I went to scope out some items being sold off by a young couple that recently bought a downtown vacant building.

I’ve said it before, but the wood section of the thrift store is a gold mine. You can recreate wood a dozen times over and it still looks good. Here is my ragamuffin group in their ugly stages – a footstool, a shelf, a wall decor piece, and some sort of cubby. Read more
