Bar Stool Makeover

Share Button

Why do you bring this stuff home? Have you ever heard that from a family member? Because they were inexpensive,  and I can do something with them. THAT’s why. I love a project and these stools were perfect.   They were found at a local thrift store for 10.00 each and I have had them stored away…

You can never have enough junk….or can you?  When you have to rent a storage building, I think you have to face it.  You may be a hoarder.  I have collected lots of “treasures” over the years.  Some for my use, and others to stock various booths I have had, and to take to garden shows…

Watermelon Mason Jars

  There are a lot of neat mason jar crafts out there, but it’s really not my thing….until now.  As I was looking around pinterest, I saw a number of watermelon jars.   To me, watermelons  signal the first days of summer and I thought they would look great on my deck that I am redecorating…
