Decorating a Hobby Lobby Wooden Christmas Tree Cutout



Pallet and reclaimed wood Christmas trees are all over Pinterest.

But what if you can't or don't want to find old wood, cut it up and nail together a tree?  Buy a small wooden tree at Hobby Lobby.

Like taking a reproduction rug beater...

Stenciled Wooden Clothes Hanger Wall Decor


Do you pick up wooden hangers at garage sales?  I do.

 I purchased 3 hangers for 50 cents at a recent sale. I prefer hangers with hotels or dry cleaners advertising stamps on them.

A Primitive Country Garage Sale Table Makeover


This primitive country table was one of my June garage sale finds.

I paid $5 for the table.

A Shipping Crate Stenciled Throw Pillow

This shipping crate stamp stencil from *Old Sign Stencils is rapidly becoming one of my favorites!

I thought I would use it on a few plain crates, but instead I'm finding I love the stamps with some color.

Easy Stenciled Fall Decor With A Crate and Fence Board


 I found this little wooden crate at a recent garage sale for $5.

Crates are really popular here, even without advertising, so I didn't think $5 was a bad price.

It was fairly dirty.  I scrubbed it outdoors with a bucket of hot soapy Dawn dish soap water and a scrub brush.  I also used some Krud Kutter Kitchen Degreaser Spray on some oily spots.

I let the crate air dry outdoors.

A Damask Garage Sale End Table Upcycle

 This oak end table was one of my August garage sale finds.

It was in decent shape.  A rather boxy shape and squarish legs, with an inlaid pattern on the top.  

I paid $10 for it.  

I don't think it was an expensive piece of furniture.  Not solid oak for sure.  It seemed to have a pretty thin oak veneer.

Thrift Shop Single Egg Poacher Repurpose Project

I found this object at our local thrift shop recently, (we are down to one) for $2.  Do you know what it is?

I thought it probably had something to do with eggs, but I wasn't sure.  I looked it up on Ebay and Etsy.  

Sure enough, both sites had some listed.  Most sellers called them a vintage single egg poacher.

Upcycled Drawer Succulent Planter

 I found this little divided, wooden drawer with knob at a local antiques/consignment shop for $5.

After a scrubbing with hot soapy water, I gave the little drawer a makeover.

A Colonel Mustard Shipping Crate Table with Old Sign Stencils

 This bright blue crate was on of my June garage sale finds.

It was $2.

 The crate was bright orange, before it was bright blue.
