From the Workshop

Doll chair cookbook rackA few finished pieces from my workshop. Best cool find this week was a vintage oak youth chair in sound condition…  just needed a little sprucing up. It’s perfect for what it’s intended, but also can be a real eye catching decor piece for the country inspired home. 

Here’s the perfect example of what I mean about using a vintage piece as a decor piece. What a unique way to display cookbooks!

Below are before and after pics of my vintage thrift store find. Used chalk paint, dark wax, and a ton of buffing.

Signs can be a creative challenge, but sometimes it’s all about the hardware that gives a simple saying just the right flair. Hanger is an old piece of wire found in our shed. Lettering and corner flowers are painted in acrylics. A few berries tied to wire with raffia adds the perfect touch.
