Spice Drawer Apothecary Cabinet Makeover

Just wanted to share a spice drawer cabinet that I madeover this week.
I thought it would be fun to change it up a bit and do two colors.

Repurposed Old Wood Crate and Clothes Hanger into a Spring Caddy

A dirty old wood crate spoke to me at a flea market last year and I took it home.
I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I liked it.
I like it even better now.
 The idea hit me last week to add a vintage clothes hanger to the crate to turn it into a caddy
and I already had the perfect vintage hanger!

Handmade Burlap Wreaths and My First Spring Festival

Well, tomorrow is the big day!
I'll be hosting a booth at a Spring festival, at a local antique mall.
I've been busy preparing for it this week
and wanted to share a few of the wreaths that I made for the festival.

Cabinet Doors Repurposed into Dairy Signs

Where has the time gone.
This past week has flown by, but it always does when you are at the beach!!!
My husband surprised me with an unexpected blessing.
He was asked to deliver a car to Fort Myers Beach, Florida.
We were only responsible for our food and lodging,
they were covering gas, a rental car and paying him for his time driving down and back!
We couldn't pass up the opportunity and so we were off.
It was a long drive, but sooo worth it!
This beach girl was back in her element!
We were able to spend a lot of time walking and relaxing along Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva Island.
We enjoyed great meals at waterfront restaurants and soaked up as much sunshine and warmth as we could before heading home to more freezing temps.
Now we're back home and back to working on projects.
The project I decided to work on first was repurposing two old kitchen cabinet doors.
I picked them up at a Habitat Restore in Blue Ridge, Georgia
a couple weeks ago, while visiting my mom.
They started off looking like this.

Branding and More Burlap Wreaths

Projects haven't been a top priority this week.
Branding has.
This has been on my mind for quite some time and I'm finally working on it.
I've been making sure that my blog, Etsy shop and my social media accounts have a cohesive look.
I've also designed my business cards and ordered them.
I still need to design thank you cards and I'd love to get a stamp with my logo on it and a few other items that I want to include in my Etsy packages.
Here's a peek at my business cards.
The front is pretty simple.
The back has all of the pertinent info on it.

Red Repurposed Cabinet Door Chalkboard

Last week I mentioned that I had been in a red and black mood the week before.
This is the last project that I completed that week that I wanted to share with you.
It is a cabinet door that I picked up at a Habitat Restore.
It was just an unfinished wood door frame with a hole for a knob.

Barb Wire and Horseshoe Wreath

I am very blessed to be great friends with my mom.
She lives about three hours from me in western North Carolina.
I was able to spend two days with her last week and
like always, I came home with goodies.
Two barb wire wreaths were some of the goodies from this trip.
Some time ago, my brother had been visiting with her
and was helping my dad with some of the fencing.
There was some old rusty barb wire they tore down and didn't need,
so rather than disposing of it, he rolled it into wreaths for her.

Spring Daffodil Watering Can Centerpiece

Here in South Carolina we have been super blessed with warmer temps these last few days.
It definitely makes it feel like Spring,
especially when daffodils are blooming everywhere.
I brought a little spring indoors today by creating a centerpiece
using daffodils, a rustic wood tray and a few thrifted watering cans.
I found this set of three cute watering cans last fall
and purchased them to use this spring.
