Flea Find: Old Wooden Ladder

Yet another flea market find from a few months ago, finally being put to good use... 

beacause, in my mind, if there's a crocheted blanket attached to it, you know something's right.

It's coming together, guys...it's coming together.

Wednesday Redo: Altered Thrift Art

One of the beauties of thrifting, is never knowing what you'll find. I love that.
Maybe you'll find exactly what you're looking for...or maybe you'll end up making it your own...
I'm still in love with Gram's nursery art from the thrift store...but how cool is THIS!?!?!?

You can find more like this particular piece HERE.

an IKEA hack

 ...which also happens to be my very first.

Surely you've seen this light...
Well, as much as I loved it in black, I really wanted a color...something bold and bright!

So I went for it.

And man, am I glad I did...

I've still got a ways before revealing the whole room to you, but here's a start.

A thrifted frame...

can always be put to good use.

If you remember, Grady and I took a trip to the Wine Country back in October.  Usually on our trips I like to bring back a bold piece of art...and, although I found a few things in San Franscisco, I was devastated that I never found anything in the Sonoma/Napa area.

Luckily, I took a ton of pictures. :)
This one was one of my favorites.  It was taken at Lambert Bridge, a to die for winery in Healdsburg.

After a little tweaking in Photoshop, I printed it out and stuck it in this old, $2 thrifted frame.

There's always a use for a thrifted frame.

Wednesday Redo: Stenciled Chair

I've gotta admit, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have thought of this...
So, thank goodness there are people out there that do!

Check out the whole tutorial over at a little bite of EVERYTHING.

Dressed and Ready.

I had a second to fill the shelves this weekend...although I do apologize, it was cloudy and rainy all weekend, so my pictures could have been better. 
(I should have waited, but I was much too impatient.)

The Newest Addition...

I wish I had a fabulous tutorial to share with you...
with detailed pictures and a complete how-to...
but I have none of those.
Wood work isn't and probably never will be in my cards.

Instead, I have Pop.
I guess you haven't met Pop before (that's him in the green, by the way).
Despite the incredible pieces of furniture he's created, he's always been pretty modest about his carpentry skills.
But, if you ask me...

a picture is worth a thousand words.
