Repurposed Headboard Bench

I am SO excited how this project turned out. I had been looking for a bench with storage for my front door. Same old story…everything was either blah or way too expensive. I saw a headboard repurposed into a bench on Pinterest, so I summoned up the determination/motivation to make one myself. I searched for a…

Corbel Entryway Table

I made a corbel table! I first saw this Shanty-2-Chic DIY Console table that I thought was adorable and knew I wanted to do something similar for my entryway. At Shanty-2-Chic, she uses pre-made turned dining table legs. While searching for my own to buy, I found these corbels at Architectural Depot. I decided to go down my…

Mudroom Hooks

This was a really easy project that I made for my mudroom that has been awesome for hanging lots of coats during our crappy Michigan winters. I searched for something to buy but nothing was big enough and everything to was too expensive. Project time! I found a piece of wood in my basement that the…

Repurposed Shot Bag Pillow

I love antique packaging because the logos, typography, colors and illustrations are so beautiful. I have a whole section dedicated to it in my Etsy store. They used to make canvas bags for many things such as shot, grain/feed, flour, money, military uses, hardware supplies, and more. Canvas is an easy material to repurpose if you have basic sewing…

Indoor Basketball Hoop

We had a large empty wall in the boys’ playroom. I thought briefly about making a big bulletin board to hang their drawings, but thought they’d have much more fun with a basketball hoop! I wanted to make my own backboard, I just needed to find a used hoop. I hopped on Craigslist and found one…

All You Need Is Love Artwork

The Beatles song “All You Need Is Love” is the song that played during the recessional of my wedding ceremony so it holds an extra special place in my heart. I knew I wanted to create a wall art typography piece in my living room with the song quote. I was walking through Menards just…

Mason Jar Centerpiece

I met a man who wanted to get rid of 100+ antique mason jars that had been sitting in his barn for years and years. I brought them home and had a (not) fun time cleaning them all. I was planning on re-selling them, but of course I wanted to keep some for myself. They…

Rubber Mat Wall Art

This was a project I found on pinterest and copied almost exactly. The step-by-step tutorial is here. You take 1″ x  12″ x 6 foot lumber, cut it down to 3 foot sections, stain it, place a rubber mat on top as a stencil and spray paint it! So easy! I originally made two sets…

Letterpress Coffee Table

I am obsessed with antique letterpress type. I first became interested in college while sitting through one of my graphic design history classes. They used to hand place these moveable-type blocks in printing presses to create newspapers, books, posters, etc. I started buying and selling the type for my online Etsy store and it ended up…

Pallet Artwork

I ship a LOT of packages because of my online Etsy store. Once a year I place a giant order of shipping supplies (cardboard boxes, packing paper, tape, etc) with Uline. This year the order was so large a UPS semi truck showed up at the end of my driveway, and everything was banded together…
