9 Themed Furniture Makeovers { DIY Projects }

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Thursday is our themed furniture makeover day !

This month’s theme is “words or letters”.

Jen, Girl in the Garage, and I started the themed tour in January.

The first month there were only the two of us.

Now we have 15 to 20 bloggers sharing projects each month.

I have my project completed for Thursday and I love it!

Sometimes I’m not to sure about a piece but this one is fun…can’t wait to share it.

Rustic Barnwood Birdhouse { Junk Find }

Monday, October 20th, 2014

The stars finally aligned and everything is right with my world.

Yep, I made it to My Favorite Junk Shop over the weekend.

Between rainy weather, a sick grandchild, a grandchild on Fall break, and college classes, I missed a few weeks of junk shopping.

It’s an addiction…really.

Do you know what I mean?

I know you do……that’s why I’m taking you on the trip with me…..

This industrial cart was really cool. I love the wood and the large wheels.

The local catfish restaurant [I love fried catfish} has several of these on display.
