Wood Pig Chalkboard Makeover

I noticed a vintage wood pig wall hanging at an estate sale and
I immediately thought it would make a cute chalkboard,
so I bought it.

Repurposed Bed Spring Projects

Recently I decided to tackle taking apart the springs of  an old mattress.
If you've never done this before, take my word, it is quite a bit of work.
The springs were rusty, so in addition to taking them apart,
 I also wire brushed them to clean off the surface rust before making a few projects with them.

Thrift Store Finds turned into Kitchen Farm Table

It all started when I found two rush seat chairs at a thrift store.
They were in great condition and really didn't need any work.
However, I couldn't leave well enough alone.
I thought they would look cute painted white with a wood top table with white legs.

NOEL Letters from Scrap Wood and a Grapevine Wreath

A friend asked me if I could use a few small grapevine wreaths that she was getting rid of.
They had some decorations on them and I figured I could make something out of them, 
so I said yes.
They've been hanging out in my craft stash for a while now 
and I finally decided what I could use them for.
They would be perfect as the "O" in a word.

Cutting Board Repurposed into Ipad Stand

When I ran across two cutting boards at a thrift store recently, Susan came to mind.
Susan from Homeroad.
She has a fun blog with a ton of great inspiration.
This project is a copycat.
It is an Ipad stand made from a cutting board and a Scrabble game tile holder.
You have to check Susans versions out here. I just love them.

Old Porch Post Repurposed into Coat Rack

Last year, while visiting my parents, I noticed that they had a few salvaged porch posts in their barn.
I immediately had a vision for one of them, but it took me a while to act on it.
I pictured it with iron shelf brackets added to the bottom, so that it would stand upright
and iron hooks added to the top to create a coat rack.
I also pictured the coat rack being painted white.
The vintage market that we did earlier this month had a shabby white, turquoise and pink theme to it 
and this coat rack that I had been thinking about for quite some time was going to fit our theme perfectly!

Vintage Jello Tins and Molding Candle Holder

I'm still working on getting unpacked and organized from the Vintage Market that my mom
 and I shared a booth at this past Saturday.
It was such a beautiful day and a lot of people came out to enjoy it and do some shopping.
We were super busy all day and very thankful for each person who took time to browse our booth.
Click here to see our booth.
We worked on numerous projects to get ready for the market and this is one of them.
It is a candle holder made from a piece of salvaged wood molding and vintage jello tins.

Cabinet Door Repurposed into Mason Jar Wall Vase

During a recent trip to a thrift store,
I picked up 4 matching cabinet doors.
 
I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do with them at first.
I was thinking I would make a sign of some sort,
but because of how small the middle portion of the doors are
 I decided to turn them into wall vases.
