Favorite Projects 2013

December 30, 2013 by 11 Comments

Like many of you I’m taking a moment to reflect on favorite projects of 2013.  The year went by way too fast if you ask me.  I shared with you about replacing our fence early in 2013  and hubby and I got creative on re-purposing the old boards.  Wood-working is truly a hobby of his and he will enjoy it even more after his retirement in a year or two  (hint hint). Oh, yes there will be more reclaimed wood projects in 2014, trust me on this.


In March 2013 I shared about the Reclaimed Wood Tray….this was a fun project, the tray adds lots of rustic and vintage charm whether it is placed on the coffee table or out on the patio table.

The weather turned warmer and a Potting Bench was just what I needed to get started on gardening projects and spring planting.

I love this box, it is so versatile…I have used it over and over again …I blogged about the Fall Centerpiece here. The ideas for more creative ways to use weathered fence wood just kept coming.

Finally, this  box came in handy in November,  it’s also made out of fence board, I stained it first, then had a change of heart and painted it, filled it with fall goodies  and it became our simple Thanksgiving centerpiece.

I’m getting excited about the new year and a new surge of creativity. How about you?  I sure hope you will join me and keep me company as we embark on new blogging adventures in 2014.
