A Fun Shovel Handle Junk Tray & Country Sampler Gardens Magazine

I found this fluted edge farm tray at a garage sale several years ago.

I was thinking planter, but I found an even more fun use for it!

Garage Sale Wall Cabinet Upcycle With Milk Paint & Stencils

I purchased this rustic wooden wall cabinet at a garage sale last spring.

I paid $5 for it.

Even though it looks old, it's not.  

It's marked on the bottom 1995 and Jack Morten, Shawnee, PA.

Hobby Lobby Easter Egg Yard Stake Farmhouse Style Repurpose

Handpainted Target Shiplap Egg Decor
When I saw Susan from the Homeroad blog's Target Easter egg project,  I remembered that I purchased one kind of like it at Hobby Lobby!

If you pick up a Target egg and want to make Susan's "Easter Blessings" egg, click on the link above.  It's perfect hanging in a wreath!

 This is my wooden Hobby Lobby egg.  

It's marked as an Easter Craft Yard Stake.  It's marked $2.99, (not on sale).

A Fun & Easy Buffalo Check Tea Towel Stenciled Sign

I purchased this buffalo check tea towel at Hobby Lobby (Spring Shop #5895214) earlier this spring.  It's 16" x 26".

I ironed the wrinkles out of it before I began my project.

I am kind of our family historian.  I have worked on family histories, and I have a lot of old family photos.  Very few of them are in picture frames.

 This Grater/Slaw Clutter with Rub On Transfers project above is one of my recent photo display blog posts.  

Below are many more of my upcycled/repurposed photo display projects!

Re-purposed Farmhouse Style Drawer Shelf


 I found this old drawer at a local consignment shop.   

I think I paid $5 for it.

Drawer Front Farmshouse Stenciled Wall Hook Board #oldsignstencils
 I repurposed the drawer front into this farmhouse style wall hook board.  Details for that project can be found HERE.

Here's what I did with the rest of the drawer...

Stenciled Easter Egg Pickup Truck Sign

I purchased a set of four paper stencils from Joann Fabrics Online about a month ago.  

I think I paid $8.99 plus shipping.

Fun Farmhouse Decor with Old Sign Stencils


 I purchased this plain little stool at the thrift shop.

It's first makeover was HERE.

Now that I don't decorate for Easter anymore, I sanded the top with my Ryobi Compact Corner Cat Detail Sander  and gave it makeover number 2!

Beautiful Upcycled Books with Dixie Belle Paint & Iron Orchid Decor Transfers

 Books are always in abundant supply at the thrift shops!  In fact, one of the local thrifts sell hardcover books at 25 cents each.  

For this project, I tried to get older books, and three that would look great stacked.

Small Vintage Coffee Table Up-cycle In Navy & Houndstooth


 I purchased this small, vintage, coffee/tea table at a garage sale.

The glass framed serving tray on top just rests on top of the table with small rubber feet.


 This is the table without the tray.  

I imagine the little tray set with bone china teacups and saucers back in the day, and maybe a silver coffee or teapot.

Nowadays, this little table with serving tray does not belong in our informal life styles.

We drink our Keurig coffee in a big mug, a travel mug or a paper cup with lid.

See what I did with this sweet little table...
