Rustic crate decor

This table needed a makeover.

I decided to paint it a nice beachy blue. 

I sewed a nice accent piece (to combine all the colours of the room together) and placed it atop the table.

Here comes the old crate with lots of character!

Add a few Frenchy finds and ta-dah!






Christmas believe sign

I finished this little runner today. I bought the wooden flags at Walmart for less than $7.00 dollars! The other side of the flags say the word 'Autumn'. Two projects with one purchase!

The following photo shows the priming stage.

Next came the colour stage...

Finally the stencilling stage was finished and the pretty runner got hung.




Rustic buoy ornaments

I was contemplating having someone trim some dowels into the shape of buoys, but then I noticed this! Yup, old styrofoam packaging material.

I realized I could trim this into buoys without having to use power tools. I held the piece firmly with one hand, and sliced the rest with just a bread knife. I cut them into rectangular blocks and trimmed the ends afterwards.

I poked some skewers for handles (which made it easier to paint the buoys) and primed the buoys. This top photo shows them drying.

Trim and pant the buoy handles. Add an eye hook and run some twine through and voila!




A handmade Christmas

From the painted mirror, to the shell wreath, to the sconces and most of my Christmas tree ornaments... I've had a 'hand' in them all!
