In 2016, I became an AVID stenciler! I stenciled signs like this "coffee sign" above three re-purposed coffeepot planters. See the details HERE.
I also made a flower market sign on spindles. See that post HERE.
I stenciled on a wooden ironing board top and added hooks HERE. I up-cycled an old dresser for my daughter with paint and stencils HERE.
I stenciled a "Pantry" stool HERE, and upcycled an old sign with a "Laundry" stencil HERE. Most of my great stencils were from the professional designs of Funky Junk Interiors/Old Sign Stencils.
I even used "Ski Lodge" stencils and vintage skis for an outdoor Christmas vignette HERE. Stencils showed up everywhere. Stencils sure add fun and a farmhouse vibe to my indoor and outdoor vignettes.
Another fun project in my Best of 2016 project group is a "Chick Starter" graphic from the Graphics Fairy Mod Podged onto a galvanized container. See the details HERE. Adding a Sempervivum (hen) to the pot is an intentional garden pun!
My first junk garden project of 2016 was this window frame that I transformed into a rustic window box. See the project details HERE. Before becoming a window box for the garden this old window frame was part of a Winter Wonderland mantel HERE.

In 2016, I continued up-cycling and re-purposing cutting boards like this cutting board/wall pocket that works for utensils, Christmas greenery or cookbooks too. See the details HERE.
I always have picture frames on hand from rummage sales and thrift shops. Frame Christmas tree details are HERE.
I want to thank everyone who follows or visits my blog from time to time to see my gardens and up-cycling and re-purposing projects! Hope to see you in 2017!
