My Favorite things off amazon

Wednesday, March 24, 2021

These farmhouse towels are a great price, and you get so many. I am in love with the simple pattern and softness. 

This steam vac has changed my life.

These shelves are so fun to decorate and change up and they are half price right now.

Tired of your throws, I changed mine out with these covers 
I just ordered 3 sets of these and am very happy with the finish.

Who doesn't love a boxwood wreath? These are a great price
These scales are so in right now. The price on this one is definitely worth splurging for one.

And I can not forget my favorite floor tiles. Floorpops 

This pillow is long and so well made. Love it on my bed.

 I hope this helps you make your home more personal and gives you the confidence to try something new.

Don't let fear of trying something hold you back. It's okay to make mistakes along the way, that's how we learn what we don't like.

When I use a product I do try to link it for you and if you decide to purchase the product I am affiliated with some of those companies. Its the only way to offset the time it takes building my how tos for decorating and DIY.

I am in no way asking you to click and purchase any items but it makes it easier for all the info to be on one site. Many different stores carry the products I use. But the links I provide is where I had purchased.

I hope that helps you make your home more personal and gives you the confidence to try something new.

Pallet board clock Pottery Barn Knock off

Monday, March 8, 2021

This was one of my favorite DIY art. I turned an old pallet into a rustic clock. I did this project about 10 years ago. So sadly I don't have the step by step directions with pics but I still really love this old world clock.

I had seen this old world type clock at Pottery Barn. It wasn't an actual working clock just for d├ęcor. It was so long ago I can't find the images to even show you.
I Had received a shipment on a pallet, I was so excited to use the pallet board for this project.
I started pulling off nails and disassembling the pallet so I could have just the boards.

I laid all the boards flat and attached three boards across the back to secure the wood. I used old roofing nails to give it a more rustic look.

I then stained the boards in a black stain. I roughed it up a little with sandpaper to really give it the old rustic look.

Now this was before I had a projector or knew how to transfer letters so I would up printing the roman numbers and tracing around them in chalk. The labor of love...
Once I had the outline I was able to paint in the numbers with a small brush and white paint. I went over the entire clock with a brown stain to really give it the aged look.
