DIY Numbered Dresser Makeover

DIY Numbered Dresser Makeover

When we built our first house, we had walk-in closets in every bedroom, with plenty of built-in drawer and hanging space, thus eliminating the need for dressers.  A few years down the road, that is no longer the case, so I found myself needing to find dressers for every one of our bedrooms before we moved…

Easy DIY Wall Hooks

We don’t have a lot of wall space at Old Salt Farm.  Lots of windows and an open floor plan contribute to it, plus we have several barn doors throughout the house eat up some of the wall space we do have.  I love the look of foyer tables in the entry area, but because…

DIY Framed Wood Farmhouse Sign

From the moment the kitchen at Old Salt Farm started taking shape, I knew exactly what I wanted to go over the windows–a Farmhouse Sign. I even knew exactly how I wanted it to look– a wooden frame for contrast against the white walls, and a classic plain font.  In the weeks before we moved…

Easy DIY Numbered Crates

It has been a whirlwind of a week.  It had come down to the wire, and last last Thursday we still didn’t know if we were going to be able to move in to Old Salt Farm that weekend. The house was finished, but there had been a huge delay getting water to the property,…

Bloom Where You’re Planted Prints: 5×7, 8×10, 11×14

We’ve lived in three states in three years with major cross-country moves involved each time, and there’s been a lot of uprooting and replanting. It can be difficult to start over, and each of us has experienced “growing” pains along the way. With another move to our new house coming up this summer, one of our family’s…

Easy wood Christmas sign

You might be surprised to hear this, but one of the hardest parts of being in this little apartment and not having any of our things is not the cramped quarters (which I’ve actually come to appreciate in many ways), but rather not being able to build and create and make stuff!!  With no tools here, and no home to decorate, my list is getting longer and longer by the day. It’s what I love to do, so when I get any small opportunity to make something, no matter how simple, I’m a happy happy girl!

I decided I needed a little something to go above the chalkboard window in the family room to add a pop of color and a little bit of Christmas to the whole space, especially after my cute husband took on the big, bad, storage unit and tried to find our ornaments and decor, but couldn’t.  I created a simple but adorable wood Christmas sign that’s perfect above a doorway, window, or shelf, and I absolutely love it!

Striped mason jar soap pump…perfect for Halloween!

Did you know there is a super easy way to make and adorable mason jar soap pump?  I’ve made them in the past using vintage jars and soap pumps cut from plastic soap dispensers, and I love them still, but this way is just SO easy.  You can use a plain jar, which is always a classic choice, but I thought a fun black & white striped version would be perfect for Halloween!
