some of my favorite finds....

New Bun Feet

This is going to be a 2 part project... 
at least....

First, I found these awesome, very old, oak bed parts on the side of the road.... 

I swear...
I don't make this up, 
people throw out great stuff!
... my husband was with me, 
he didn't want to stop but I won.

Very, very, old and awesome but all I really want is the parts...


especially these spindle tops...

(and rest assured those headboard and footboard pieces will be showing up as awesome signs one of these days...)


I have this big project I want to do....
It has to do with painting kitchen cabinets.

Not all of them mind you, in my kitchen that 
is way too big of a job for me.

I have this desk area that I want to 
make look like a built-in hutch.

And here is where the bed comes in...

I chopped off the top of the bed spindles and made bun feet.


You can see that my cabinets are in desperate need of paint and now the bun feet are too!


I also attached corbels to each side of the desk top...


And this is where I'm leaving you...

When this project is finished, 
I'll post the finished product...

Ladder Craft Organizer

You may remember the old ladder that I 
jammed into the back of my car...

Here's more...


The piece I hadn't used yet made a great 
craft organizer... 


I began by "sewing" on the chicken wire using 
jute twine with a large needle I made out of wire...

Each shelf has a special use...


A magnetic washboard...


Clip on memos...


Rusty metal spikes are wedged in between the shelves to act as ribbon holders...


A basket for "stuff"...
(or cute numbers)


And a bar across the top of the shelf hangs hooks for whatever you want to hang....
(maybe even a rusty bicycle chain in the shape of a heart)


All together it makes an awesome junky 
organizer and is perfect on the big wall in my

Dutch Boy Paint

I was contacted by Dutch Boy Paints 
to do a post on their paint....

source

This is the first time I'm testing a product for a 
company and I decided to give it a try....

 First we chose a room that needed painting...

That would be my daughter's room, the very bright pink is a hand-me-down color from her older sister... 

Kerry is the third sister to occupy this room!





Very bright pink!





Kerry picked the color....
she chose Soft Terrain 

source


After patching, priming and preparing the walls, 
we got busy painting....




Ok, so really my husband painted...
(someone had to take the pictures)





 According to Jim...
the paint went on very smoothly, 
evenly and quickly
"It was good paint to work with."

Now bear with us because Kerry's
decorating isn't finished yet... 

 



 She's earning money for her new room decor...




The best part is the Dutch Boy Paint, 
the color is gorgeous!



Kerry is very happy to have her new room!
Thank you Dutch Boy,
we love the paint!

Driftwood Towel Hooks

The towel bar in my daughter's bathroom didn't work...




Let me just preface this post by saying that I have 
not 1 but...



 teenaged daughters 
sharing the same bathroom!

Not only was I not a fan of the shiny silver...


but the towel bar didn't work...

For some reason, 
none of the girls could hang up a towel!
Hard to believe I know.



 Ever!
It must be a design flaw in the towel bar.

So I'm going to try something new...


 I removed the old towel bar by turning these little screws...

Then I removed the backing plate...


After adding hooks to a beautiful piece of driftwood I've 
been saving for years...


I screwed it to the wall with very long screws...




And with any luck at all...



 This towel holder is going to work!
Do you hear me girls????
