Barn Wood Photo Display

Barn Wood Photo Display

We got the opportunity to take some photos and collect some planks from a family barn that was being torn down, so it seemed like a great opportunity to make something fun for our kin who own the barn. This was the result, along with some fun photos from the day.    

Antique White Chest of Drawers with Turquoise Accents

Antique White Chest of Drawers with Turquoise Accents

This great antique chest of drawers came to us recently, originally made (we believe) in 1907 in Kansas City.  One cool characteristic of this chest is that is has wooden casters.  Don’t come by a lot of those these days. Kenzie removed several layers and colors of paint from the piece before preparing for the new paint job.

During the Chest of Drawers project Kenzie uncovered some really cool looking drawer pulls. After polishing them up she found they didn’t really fit the project she was working on but has saved them back to be used on a future project.  Check out great these have turned out. As they were when we got them: One of many cleanings Cleaned up Close ups

Cable Spool Wall Clock

We had a fairly large wall that needed a decoration, and a clock seemed like a sensible addition and fun project, so Kenzie set to the task of finding a way to create a big one.  Her canvas: part of an old electrical wire spool.
