DIY-Re-Purposing a Door Panel into a Coat Hanger

  Happy Friday!!!  If you’ve been following for awhile-you might remember when I did a  makeover for my office.  There were a few DIY projects in that makeover-including one where I re-purposed  the top half of an old bi-fold door.  Well, at the time, I really didn’t have any use for bottom half,  so they…

Re-purposing a vintage shutter

Hello-sweet friends!!!  Before I share my tale about finding a functional purpose for an old shutter I found on the farm-I have to give you an update on our beautiful grandson!!!   First off-the bad news…after speaking to Max’s pediatrician, we all determined that it was best if this grandma put aside her ENORMOUS excitement,…

Christmas Wall Art

Let me start by saying how much I envy those folks who were born with the crafty gene!  How wonderful it must be-to pick up a pair of scissors, a sheet of a construction paper, and glue stick, and within minutes, create a masterpiece!!! Take my daughter in law, for example…. When the Good Lord…

Speaking of projects…….. I suppose you…

No Sew Outdoor Cushion Covers
