Who else had a rocking horse growing up? My brother and I had a red one and boy did we travel some miles (well pretend miles) with lots of giggles along the way! So when this guy became available at a local online Garage sale, I was instantly taken back to these fun times with […]
Like with most things that I come across they are dated and looking a little sad and worn. Part of the joy of doing what I do is being able to take these pieces and give them a nice fresh new look so that they can then be used again. With that said I’m sharing how […]
Sharing a super quick idea on how to give dated Thrift Store Napkin Rings a fresh new look. I recently found a set of wooden Napkin Rings at my local Thrift Store and I saw some potential in them and that they could once again be used as what they once were!
.We have lived in our house for nearly 4 years and the front porch was one of those areas that I was always going to get to but never did!! It kind of had things thrown on there in no order or style for hubby and me to enjoy. So the day came for our much needed front porch […]
When I’m out on my Thrift shop runs I am always on the look out for different things that I can paint or do something to and give nice new farmhouse look. Some days I come home with lots and others not so much but that’s part of of the fun I say! Today I wanted […]
This is the first time that I have used a drop cloth in one of my projects and it was SO fun that I decided to make 2 DIY Drop Cloth Projects instead. You may remember the Farmhouse Drawer Caddy that I recently made out of a old dresser drawers and legs? Well, one of the projects that I […]
A little while ago now I bought a sweet dressing table to give a little Raggedy Bits makeover and unfortunately during the bringing it home process 2 out of the legs snapped off 🙁 . After a little bit of an investigation, I had found that the legs had been glued back on and were already broken! So […]
A friend of mine was having a little Spring clean and asked me if I could do anything with a quilt rack. As soon as she showed me the cogs in my brain were churning away! The structure was sound but it had a few scratches and water marks, which were all easily fixed. If you’ve been […]
This would have to be one of my most favourite Farmhouse projects yet. I’m seeing more and more of these sweet signs whilst out shopping and drool every time I see them! So to save myself from further drooling incidents I thought I would try and make myself one. There’s a nice spot right above […]
With Easter upon us, I wanted to add a Vintage Sieve Easter Wreath to my final touches of decorating! Using bits and pieces that I already had in my craft stash I had so much fun making this simple wreath.
There’s something about numbers and creating little vignette’s around my home that I just love! My kids think that I have need them around so I don’t forget how to count! Kids huh?!? Sharing some simple ways using numbers to decorate around your home to add some numbered farmhouse charm!
It’s one of those really proud moments when you are asked to be a part of someone’s special day with something that you love doing! That was the case for me when a very lovely couple on New Year’s Eve just past, asked me to provide them with a lemonade stand and 6 Vintage Games on […]
Whilst I love this old Letter/Bill holder with the old cars on the front with all its bumps and lumps, it was in desperate need of a spruce up. So with some left over Paper Bag that I used on my Paper Bag Side Table, I set about to give this cool organisational piece a new Paper Bag […]
(Photo via www.kmart.com.au) I had been eyeing off this cute little Test Tube Vase from Kmart for a while! Once I bought them home I just couldn’t help myself and had to have a Farmhouse Test Tube Vase Tinker!
It truly is so hard to believe that 2015 is coming to an end in only a couple of days now! I’m sitting here scratching my head asking myself……”Where did that all time go ??” Even though I have learnt so much and had so much fun this past year there is plenty more to […]
