Re-Purposed Rustic Cabinet Doors



Junkin season is under way! I'm itching to hit those garage sales! Bring on Spring!

I had scored a cabinet at a garage sale for a whopping $1! Yes a $1! (sorry I dont have a pic)
I loved the rustic look of the doors, and maybe that's why I didn't hesitate to grab this. Like they always say "One mans junk is another mans treasure".

Over the holidays I had quite of few people ask me to create something for gifts for them to give. So, as I was looking around my Imagination Station aka Garage for materials to "create" something, there was this lonely forgotten cabinet in the corner.

I took the doors off and attached a hanging wire to the back.
These doors came exactly how you see them. The glass was still in tact! So I painted their family name on the window and...

VOILA!!
A one of a kind Rustic Family Wall Decor!




These one of a kind pieces were a HIT!!!
Just too bad I don't have more of them. 
So never disregard an old cabinet, there are many possibilities!

DIY Chicken Wire Basket- Vintage Knockoff



If you have ever shopped for "Vintage Baskets"? You better be prepared to spend some moolah!! 

I have been searching when I go on my "Junkin" Adventures, and just can't see myself paying the $$ they want for em. Call me cheap I guess! LOL SO...I decided I've got some chicken wire in the garage, and I gonna figure out how to make one!! 

First I had to figure out something to help make/keep the shape. So as I was cruising around my local Dollar Tree I seen these Cooling Racks...2 for a $1!!! Can't beat that HUH??!! Perfect for the job!

Spring Cleaning & Organizational Tips



Spring is in the air!! Almost time to open those windows...let some fresh air circulate throughout your home! Ahhhh....Love this time of year! I really want to be outta the house on these beautiful days, working on some new projects but we all know it's about that time......SPRING CLEANING!
Some get excited about this, and others dread it! I guess I'm caught in between, maybe it depends on the day. Although I did re-organize the garage this last weekend. And maybe that's partly because I had to make room for new junk that I got!! LOL
On last weeks DIY Sunday Showcase, there were some great link ups shared by you bloggers to help get you in the mood!

DIY Firemans Prayer Sign


If you know a fireman or fire woman...you've probably read this poem. I guess just knowing what these brave people choose do everyday...WOW! It really takes a special person to risk it all just to save a stranger. 

A friend of mine wanted this poem to hang on their wall. And she really wanted it to be unique looking.

Making the most of your (small) space


Personal space is important—it’s the one place we can be ourselves. It’s a small piece of the biosphere that reflects us; a mirror for our thoughts, dreams, and opinions. If your chunk of the world is especially cozy, choosing your décor wisely becomes essential. Small areas can easily look cluttered just because of the way that the eye perceives spatial orientation. I’ve come up with my top five tips to help you maximize your cramped space—enjoy!
