Scrap Wood Phone Caddy

I haven't been doing too much lately since I've just wrapped up some big projects that I started working on during the Holidays. I have been targeting areas that just need a fresh look or different accents added. One of those areas is where the telephone is located. Since our house is a mix of old and new construction, the footprint here on the first floor just doesn't make sense and neither does the location of the phone. I'm not a phone type of person, therefore  I keep it located on the counter so I don't have to stay on the phone for hours talking to anybody. I like to keep calls short , sweet and to the point. I thought I would give it fresh look with some access to paper and pencils for the calls that need notes and numbers.

Bathroom floor tile in Black

I'm almost finished with bathroom no. 2,  which is another 1/2 bath in our home. It's more for our son to use because it's the closest one to his room. I wasn't sure of using black tile in a bathroom , but I honestly love it now. Most people  tend to choose lighter and neutral shades of color to play it safe, but I took a walk over to the darker side and it looks great.

Snow, Snow Go Away !

It seems like it's been snowing here in MA every 3rd day. I don't mind the snow since I love being outdoors all year , but it's the clean up that is the downside. It takes  me approx. 7-8 hours to clean up around our property. I have to snow blow driveway which is roughly 150'. It's a lot of shoveling and after a total of 50 +  inches this season , it's safe to say I quit.

Rustic and Rusty Hearts

Hello . While it was snowing heavily the other day , I was dreading to have to go outside to snow blow ,  shovel , and roof rake again, I decided to sit and watch the  snow from the window. I made a strong cup of coffee and sat at the table to make some hearts. I added an old chippy painted window to the wall and it needed some accents.

Valentine's Day gifts for nursery school kids

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.  I made some quick and easy gifts for our son to hand out in school to his classmates. I figured I would do something not pertaining to food or candy since some kids have food allergies. I saw this on Pinterest but I put my own twist to it.
It probably took me an hour or so to do.

DIY Chalkboard

Hello Everyone, I thought I would show you how to make a chalkboard really simple. No paint required.
Our son has been learning to write his name in school this year. I thought  the chalkboard would be a great gift to his teachers to say  thank you  and sign his name for  Valentines' Day . I made three of them for his two teachers and one for myself.

Love signs

A while back I made some signs on some scrap wood. They all say LOVE and what a perfect time to show you them.

I used the same stencil on some of them and painted them different colors. They  will probably  end up in my shop for sale but for now they are just with the rest of the signs I've painted.

Scrap wood Heart

The other day when I finished making chalkboard gifts for my son's teachers for Valentine's day ,  I had a small pile of scrap 1 by 2's leftover.  The way  they were piled on the floor kind of looked like a heart so I went with it.  I only had to make a few cuts since most of the pieces were already at 45 degree angles.

Craft Table in 15 seconds

Hello  I want to share with you this great Christmas present I received this year. I am always looking for that extra   work space  when I am working on a project. I start my projects in the garage and before you know it , I 'm in the house and  I have the kitchen counter and table loaded with either tools or paint . I got this amazing fold up table made by Keter.  I do have a work bench on wheels that I built last year with a vice mounted to it and peg board for small tools. Unfortunately, I always have junk loaded on it that shouldn't be there.

The table comes with 2 clamps that you can use mounted on the table or separate.  It has a bottom shelf  for extra space for tools. It's great, the legs have an adjustment for height , press 2 buttons and the table will open and you can be set up in 15 seconds.

The best part of the table is the large handle to carry it from one place to another to have an instant work space in any room. I can carry it around like a very large suitcase. Yes, it folds up flat for a convenient storage. It measures approx. 34.5 inches by 22 inches by 4.5 inches when it's closed up flat. If  you are like me and always needing some more work space then you would like this table.
