Best of Organized Clutter 2016

Fun in the Garden with Coffeepots
In 2016, I became an AVID stenciler!  I stenciled signs like this "coffee sign" above three re-purposed coffeepot planters.  See the details HERE.

Garden Sign with Spindle Legs
I also made a flower market sign on spindles.  See that post HERE.

Stenciled Ironstone Plates
I stenciled on plates HERE.  I also stenciled on window screens HERE and HERE.  And on windows HERE.

Repurposed Ironing Board Coat Hooks
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.

Laundry Room & Pantry Stencil Projects
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. 

Vintage Ski Themed Holiday Decor
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.

Mod Podge Chick Starter Pot
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!

Rustic Junk Garden Window Box
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.

Cutting Board Wall Pocket
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.

Picture Frame Christmas Tree
I always have picture frames on hand from rummage sales and thrift shops. Frame Christmas tree details are HERE.
