Why I’m Obsessed with Flea Markets, and Why You Should Be Too! (Check out the newest additions to The Project Pile!)

Have you ever been to a flea market before?! If not, then you totally need to go! Even if you’re not that much into finding pieces of furniture to flip, there’s almost always something for everyone! Car parts, furniture, antiques, collectibles, toys, and usually lots and lots of junk… Sometimes items jump right out at you, and other times you may have to sift through, but if you wonder around enough, you’re sure to find something!

This weekend I was able to spend my whole Saturday at one of my favorite flea markets, back in my hometown, the Annual Stirling Agricultural Society Flea Market, which is always held on the first weekend of May. Continue reading

Easy DIY String of Wooden Beads (My amazing thrift store find!)

Lately, I have been seeing large strings of wooden beads all over in different home décor settings… At first I wasn’t one hundred percent sure about them, but the more I saw them, the more I fell in love and appreciated them!

Last week when I was out treasure hunting/thrifting, I happened upon a great find! A big bag of large wooden beads! I thought, oh my goodness, I bet I could just string these guys together, and voila! I would have my very own string of wooden beads! Continue reading

Spring on the Farm and some Pretty Photos!

Spring has finally sprung on the farm! Although I’m a real snow-lover, as most of you know, I’ve been waiting and waiting for spring on the farm!

The last time we were down, we ended up having a real weird streak of weather and it turned out being negative twenty-four degrees while we were there! Like, what the heck?!!

This last weekend when we were down, however, ended up being just gorgeous! The Easter bunny even came for a visit!

One of my favorite things to do when I’m at the farm is to explore and take photos while I’m doing it! Continue reading

10 DIY Amazing Twine Projects (that you need to try, right now!)

Does anyone else have a slight obsession with twine, lately?! I love it! You can basically take any object, one that you don’t especially care for, wrap it in twine, and get a whole new look! It’s really like one of the easiest and least expensive décor hacks out there…

Did you know that twine is actually composed of two or more smaller strands that are individually twisted, and then twisted together, to make a larger strand.

I actually just had a flashback to my childhood years, and I think my fascination with twine may have all started when I was young and to keep busy while my parents were working in the fields on the farm, I would twist and braid pieces of bailer-twine… (And that’s how it all started?!)

How to make a pretty set of Hooks with Authentic Barn Board

I collected a few pieces of beautiful, authentic barn board some time ago from my parents’ farm and it took me a really long time to figure out what to do with them…

One ended up as a sign to use in pictures for my sister’s gorgeous old-world-style wedding.

I used another piece to make my DIY painted flower box. (Which you can check out right, here!)

That left me with one final piece from the farm, and after a while, I finally came up with the perfect idea – a pretty set of hooks… you know, for hanging stuff! Like hats and purses… or even Christmas stockings! Continue reading
