Get Your Farmhouse Style On: 8 Ways to Use Bottle Drying Racks

I truly love farmhouse style. I think it goes well with my love of junk vintage. A great example of farmhouse style is the bottle drying rack. And if it's vintage and/or French, well, that's even better. I got mine out recently (spring cleaning and redecorating and all) and then I perused Pinterest for inspiration. I even created a Pinterest board dedicated to them. I was just fascinated with all the different ways you can decorate with them.

How To Build Your Own Fire Pit For Less Than $75!

Spring is finally here and summer is rapidly approaching. So now is the perfect time to create an awesome outdoor fire pit that you, your family and friends will enjoy for many months to come. I know there are many ways to build a fire pit and we are by no means experts. The way we did it may not be the way for you. That being said, after going through the process, we thought we'd share some tips on how Mr. CBD and chickadee number three went about building it.

CanvasPop Photo Canvas Giveaway!

I love photo canvases. There's something about the 3-D-edness of it all. Yes, 
3-D-edness is a real word. To me, photo canvases just seem to "pop" a bit
more than a regular framed photo hanging flat on your wall.

Easter Decorating with Wheat Grass and Other Natural Elements

Easter Decorating with Natural Elements

I haven't done much in the way of Easter decorating this year, probably
because we still have things in boxes from when the house was on the
market. I did find a few decorations to place around the house, but right
now my favorite Easter decoration is the mossy basket I recently put
together. You can read about how I did that here.

One nice thing about Easter decorating is that it lends itself to the use of
natural elements such as moss, bird's nests, eggs, fresh flowers and wheat grass, just
to name a few. Most of us already have these items and can put them to
use right away whenever the Easter decorating spirit strikes us.

Easy DIY Mossy Easter Basket

Easy DIY Mossy Easter Basket

I've been loving on those Pottery Barn moss-covered Easter baskets for the
past few years and, well, I decided that it's finally time to do something about
it. So I went to my local Hobby Lobby (with coupon of course) and picked up
a bag of moss.

After seeing my Ballard Designs knock-off dog toy storage bin, the kind folks
at Hometalk asked me to curate a pet supply storage board for them. And since
37% - 47% of all American households have dogs, while 30% - 37% have cats,
I thought a round-up of pet storage ideas might come in handy!

Here's my Ballard knock-off that I stenciled myself. It's perfect for
storing Riley's  toys when she's not using them.

And I really love this vintage crate turned cat food storage
container from Gypsy Barn.

A while back I promised that I'd post about my thrift store finds once a week.
While I certainly haven't done it once a week, I am at least trying to catch up.
Just a few finds today but I am really happy with them, for a number of reasons
I'll explain below.
