Two For One Hook Racks



Hey there y'all, today I wanted to share another hook rack that was created from some old fence pieces, scrap corrugated metal, a piece of plywood and a few big buck hooks.




It was a pretty simple project to complete. I just cut 2 fence pieces to size for the ends and added another two pieces of pickets to fill in the gaps for the top and bottom.




The metal just required a little trimming to a smaller size and was tucked under the fence. All was then screwed to the plywood to secure it. I did paint the fence white and then distressed.



By adding two large hooks it became a functional piece perfect for a farmhouse cabin.




The best part was I used the scrap pieces for another small hook rack that is a little beachy.







Two projects for the mostly free price of one, you gotta love that!

Visitors Parking Mechanic Bench



Well it's been a long while since my last post but I'm happy to be sharing one of my latest projects today.




It started out as a  mechanics creeper bench. By adding 2x4's for legs, pieces of old closet shelf as support braces and 2 Visitors Parking signs it became a functional bench.



I added 2 pieces of wide wood to the top to create the seat and filled in the gap with a scrap piece of black metal. This matches the brace pieces.



The parking signs were added to each end and make the bench more stable and solid.
I just sanded down the wood areas and applied several coats of Poly.



This turned into the perfect bench for your man-cave, garage or Visitors Space.






Leaving the wheels attached gives it a piece of originality.




I hope to be posting more often and as always,

Thanks for stopping by

Mid - Century Desk Makeover


Hey Ya'll.. I'm sharing a quick make over project from a recent curbside find. It always amazes me what people will just put to the curb. I guess that's good for us though to create easy and mostly free makeovers.


This is the cutest mid - century designed desk made by Sears.It was in great shape with sturdy legs and clean drawers. The label was still on the back ( no photo).

Here is the new and improved version.



It just got a good cleaning and then I primed all the surfaces that were going to be painted. I chose to make the color bright and fun. This is Ocean Mist in gloss by Rust - Oleum. 




I did leave the top original just to give the desk a protected surface that was original.




The legs were just cleaned along with the hardware and put back on.




This was a easy, quick and almost free project. With just a can of spray paint and a little time you can give a throw away piece of furniture a second life.

What have you made over from the curb lately?



Thanks for stopping by,

Old Door Hook Hanger


Hey Ya'll ! It's been awhile since my last post but I am determined to more active with sharing what I have been up to this year. First up is a entrance hook hanger made from a piece of an old door.


Can you see all that chippy goodness? This was the top half of an old door that I got from a flea market.
I turned the door horizontal and added 2 banister pieces with old roofing nails.This gave the door more support.



The middle was a little to plain for me so I added a "Blessing" sign that I had.




A few hooks on the bottom and this project was complete.



I love how this turned out and it was really simple to complete.



I did add a hanger to the back of the door. 

Just a few more pictures.







The best part is how quickly this SOLD at Vintage Living Marketplace.
It went to a new home the first day I had it at the shop!



Until next time.

Thanks for stopping by,
