Everyday Fall " DIY "

Fall is a season for warmth and cozy living

I have been doing some DIY projects

and adding a bit of " rustic " charm...

I used an old wood card table top

that I found missing its legs

and framed it with reclaimed

2 x 4 's to create a mix against our chandelier...

Finished this project with some black chalkboard paint!

Two days of hard work was worth

the end result of this 

Rustic Farm Style dining table

I created this with the following...

A salvaged old wood panel door

old wood canopy poles

legs were made from an old gate posts

and table was framed with the wood slats

from the gate door itself.

Then waxed and coated with polyurethane.
What a beautiful feast to be served
on this table that seats eight...


Lastly I did two quick projects

using an old chair found curbside along with

an unwanted wood console table...

 I painted and sanded the frame

of the chair with a pale gray

and recovered with a spare linen panel.

The table I sanded and painted with

a mix of white and pale gray...

For those of you who have not yet

had a chance to order the Fall issue

the link is located on the 

top right of my blog.

Melinda Reyes is a talent beyond words

and has put together such a breathtaking

Fall issue of her magazine...

Blessed to be among the

my favorite lovelies in blog land this week.

I just read your story at Must Love Junk. I commented there that I am guilty of often being a "looker" and not a "reader". I had no idea that I was missing heartfelt words when I only looked at your beautiful photos. I will be reading now.
