Over Fall Break, I did a handful of projects to keep me busy and entertained!

Originally, I planned to just make ONE wreath with deer antlers and add fresh pine and my blue Mason jars to this antique RC crate. After after my wheels began turning and I rummaged through my Mema’s barn, I got the inspiration to make more and my project list kept growing! I made all the wreaths with a touch of natural and fresh decor found in family and friends backyards!!

I also turned this picture frame + jewelry cabinet into a front chalkboard. I’d like to paint the frame white, but it is very hard for paint to stick to laminate!


Another project I actually began before Fall break, is this stained wooden stump. It has a lot of character, with knots and ridges, which is why it didn’t end up getting split into firewood! I eyed it in my Grandaddy’s shop and called dibs on it, then stained it with a medium, dark stain and emphasized the knots and ridges to make them really stand out.

Eventually it will be a side table beside my peacock chair that I’m not finished with yet. It is a fan peacock chair that has been painted black since I was in 5th grade, and I’m transforming it to white. It’s getting there- just not enough hours in the day! I’ve had a lot of sore muscles in my day, but never would I imagine a sore FOREARM from spray paint! Needless to say, painting a wicker piece black to white is hardwork!
