Three creative wood coatracks you can make yourself!!

I don’t know about you all, but I’m so obsessed with the unexpected. When it comes to hanging up coats, I love finding unique and interesting ways to hang up our clothes and coats.

1. Unique door knob coat hanger

This remains one of my favorite projects I’ve ever done and I still use this in my bedroom. You should totally try it! Click the link for the directions.

2. Reclaimed wood coat rack

You can easily make this one with a reclaimed board, some hooks and some paint. Most of us have an old board around. Make this one.

3. Built in coat tree

I wish so much that I had “stages” pictures and directions for this. My dad did this for me shortly before he died. I do know he made it entirely from 1x4s and nails. I love this so much.

I hope these ideas spark your creativity! If you use any of these ideas, please share it with me!

Free printable Friday: Valentines on my Mind!

Happy Friday! Can you believe it’s February? This year is going by quickly and I can’t say I’m sad about it. So, to celebrate, here are two free printables for you. This year I’m focused on God’s definition of love and 1 Corinthians 13. I thought I’d base my freebies on that verse.

And here is one with the passage of Scripture from 1 Corinthians 13:8-12.

I hope you love these new free prints! In case you want to print them and frame them, I’d recommend printing no larger than 8×10. I like to use a print shop like Staples Copy and Print for mine. Just right click and save to your device!

And have an amazing week! We will see you Monday.

DIY Shabby Chic Lampshade

My youngest daughter wanted a pretty new lamp for her bedroom. We tried to find something that would fit her boho- themed room without breaking the bank, but we couldn’t.

But did you know lampshades are incredibly easy to DIY? All you need to make this one is some ribbon and a hot glue gun.

We found this ribbon at the Wal of Marts.

Then, get your hot glue gun and glue the ribbon to your shade however you want. I put a drop of glue every inch on this one and it has held just fine.

I really love how it turned out. A lot of people have thought it was high end.

Plus, my kiddo is happy and that’s all that really matters, right?

Tune in next week for some more really cute crafts for girls’ crafts.

Thrift store remakes: how to make a faux ironstone planter

I absolutely love thrift stores. While some people see them as a junk store filled with other people’s useless castoffs, I see it as a treasure hunt. One man’s trash really is another person’s treasure.

I love to shop resale stores and thrift stores to find gently used clothes for my family, but I also love finding unique treasures and projects. Recently, I’ve been on an ironstone kick. I love how it looks but I don’t love the price. You can fake it fairly easily.

I spotted this Christmas planter not long after I arrived at the store. I loved the size and shape of it.

I used two coats of antique white spray paint to make it look like ironstone and I loved how it turned out.

I even used it in a fall display with a mum and some pumpkins.

I also sprayed this pitcher to make it look like ironstone too.

What are your recent thrift store remakes?
