Pallet Angels

Welcome back!  Thanksgiving flew by (Hope you had a great one) and it's December already - time for a Christmas project!
I've seen some primitive angels on Pinterest, but I wasn't crazy about the wings, so I decided to design my own.  I drew and cut-out my patterns, then got to work with my jigsaw.  
All of the pieces were sanded, painted and distressed.  Screws were used to attach the wings and the angels were done.
As I looked at them, I felt they were missing something, so I added a pearl halo.

A quick and easy project for Christmas...not sure where they're going yet, but I'm sure I'll figure it out.

  1. Cute rustic angels, good job,love your wings. Good thing you can draw what you need. The pearl halos are pretty touch.
    Have been making ornaments for gifts since we got paid one day before Thanksgiving and won't get paid again (SS) til 2 days after Christmas. Hard time of year to have 5 weeks between paydays.
    Also been working on decorating our small living room and little in other rooms mostly with home made decorations.
    Mr. Furry made good sized pallet back drop for a reindeer I got at $tree.Put some faux pine garland around outside edges and called it good. Put on top of shutter shelf and it's a good focal point decoration. The reindeer is silver glittered.
    Had been trying to decide what to do with it and this afternoon idea came to me, had stained back drop light gray few days ago. Made another one which will make a tree on with ornaments for our daughter''s home.
    Needing to come up with home made gifts makes a person use their creativity.
    Have wonderful week

How To Decoupage Dresser Drawers - With Napkins!

Welcome back!  Last week you saw a garage sale dresser transformed with paint and decoupaged napkins.  If you missed it, click here

Today I have a little tutorial showing how it was done.  Let's get started, shall we?

The drawers were sanded down to bare wood and the edges were painted black to match the rest of the dresser.  The napkins were found at the Dollar Store.
Notice they are 2-ply napkins?  You only need one, so separate those layers! Iron the one-layer.  It helps when you are ready to lay it down on the wet decoupage medium.   Since the napkins were not wide enough to cover the entire drawer, I was going to have to piece them together.  These napkins also had a very definite pattern that was going to need matching, so it was time for some measuring.  I found the middle of the drawer and matched it to the middle of the napkin.  Then I marked the edges of the napkin on the edge of the drawer with chalk.  See the white (chalk) dot? There are actually two of them as guides for …

All-Natural Weed Killer - That Works!

Summer is finally here!  The flowers are blooming, the grass is growing, and so are the weeds!

So many times I hear people ask how to kill weeds without harmful chemicals.  Here is my solution:
I start with a 24 ounce spray bottle and cover the bottom with salt.  I held it up to the light so you could see how much salt I use...since I don't measure it! Then, I fill it up with vinegar and add a few drops of dish soap.  Any brand will do since it just helps the solution stick to the leaves.  Shake it up and don't forget to label the bottle. The only thing left to do is spray the weeds.  As you can see, I got this one good and wet. Two hours later... Isn't that amazing?   I've been using this solution for years and it's never let me down.  One thing I will tell you, though, it seems to work better on a sunny day.   Do you have a 'go-to' weed killer?  Be sure to tell us about it in the comments.  As, always, thanks for stopping by and Happy Father's Day to all the …

The Water-Logged China Cabinet

Here's the back story on this piece... The storage unit we rented was in an old factory and they were cleaning-out.  When we arrived with the movers (same company) I spotted the china cabinet that had been left out in the rain for a loooong time.  It was warped, split, peeling, and had no glass.  Since I'm an idiot...ahem, love a challenge, I offered to buy it.  The owner told me to take it - no charge.  He also gave me the maple table for free.  If you missed that makeover, click HERE.  Since I had no room for the china cabinet, it sat there until we moved into the new Cottage.  
The china cabinet made it as far as the back porch and as soon as we were 'settled' aka: had a functional kitchen and bathroom, I got to work. The original plan was to reglue the veneer and try to add stain to blend in what was missing.  That plan was tossed aside as soon as I realized the extent of the water damage.  Take a closer look:

The more sanding I did, the more veneer came off. It was s…
