If you follow along with The Project Pile on Facebook, you may have seen the beautiful fluffy and poofy burlap wreath that I shared the other day, that my good friend, (Courtenay from over at The Creek Line House) made and posted about… Gorgeous!
This was my inspiration, or rather motivation, to finally get my butt into gear and whip up the burlap rag wreath that I had been hoping to devise long before now!
So yesterday, I finally got my act together and came up with this really beautiful, yet really easy and fast wreath to make! Continue reading →
Raise your hand if you are one of those crazy people like me, who loves a good kitchen faucet! Whether I am visiting someone’s home or strolling down the aisle of the local DIY store, I am always checking out the faucets!
Personally, I have always loved the looks of the old farmhouse style faucets… And the really nice thing about technology these days, is that we can now get these beautiful farmhouse/antique looking faucets, with all of the convenient functionality of the modern day faucet! It’s totally the best of both worlds! Yah!Continue reading →
Have you started getting ready for fall yet?! I have… I just can’t help it! Fall is like, um, the most amazing decor season of all!
A few years ago, is when I actually created these three fall burlap printables. They have just been sitting idle on my computer, doing nothing, ever since then! I thought of them the other day and decided to try and track them down, and see if I still liked them… and I totally did!Continue reading →
Last summer my husband and I decided to upgrade our boat for something a little more kid friendly, so we ended up purchasing a really deep boat with a cuddy… Perfect for the kids, as well as fishing in those bigger waves that can sometimes pop up out of no where on the great lakes!
The boat that we purchased was not brand new, but totally new to us! In fact, this boat is actually a 1998… But it still looks pretty darn good, right?! When we launched our boat for the very first time, at a local boat launch, someone actually came up to us and said “Wow, that’s a really nice boat… It’s brand new, right?!”Continue reading →

Today we are talking all about benches! If you were able to tune in earlier this month, you may have caught my post on my DIY bench made from a head-board and foot-board…
I found this bed set at a thrift store for about fifteen dollars, over two years ago, in hopes of making a bench out of it… But with life and stuff (working, momming, snowmobiling and fishing), it just sat around in The Project Pile, for practically, forever. Well until this month, that is!
I finally dug the bones for that bench out and had at’er! I was so happy and excited with how it turned out, I kind of feel like I want to make another one, and another one… and another one!
That’s how I decided to take a look at some other bloggers’ ideas and projects, and let me tell you, there really are a lot of neat DIY benches out there!
It was a little bit tough, but I was able to narrow down all of these great ideas to my top ten favorite. Some are so pretty, some are so eclectic, some are rustic, and some are fancy… Basically, what I’m trying to say is, that there is a bench for everyone on this list, no matter what your tastes are!Continue reading →
This year just happens to be Canada’s 150th birthday — Can you believe it?! I really wanted to create something special in order to celebrate this year. I wanted to devise something that would look a little on the rustic side, and also look just as old as Canada, itself…Continue reading →
I recently had the opportunity to join a new blogging group called Furniture Refresh! Each month, we get to take an old piece of furniture and breath new life into it using different products and techniques! This month, our mission was to stain a piece of furniture.
This is my first project with the Furniture Refresh group, so I’m really excited to share it with you all! Continue reading →
This year, I really wanted to make our porch into the perfect relaxation/hang-out space for our family. In order to do this, I decided that we needed a bench so that we would have more room for everyone to sit. So I headed out to The Project Pile… Did some digging… And this is what I found!Continue reading →
