Halloween Mantel with Crows on a Gate

Well, let me tell you, I was thinking on posting today a Fall mantel, and that's what I first began working on when I saw these pieces of wood in my garage (Picture below left). Those two pieces are the remnants of a

Halloween - Thanksgiving Banner

The project today came to life just after finishing my last post ---> the drawer that was turned into a basket, you can check that project right HERE.
Since my basket was inspired by those old berry picking baskets, big handle and all, as soon as I finished with all the painting and was ready to take the final pictures, I began looking for berry baskets to place in the basket for the photo shoot. I went to my closest grocery stores but couldn't find any. :(

A Repurposed Drawer

One more item lingering in the garage was this drawer, it was a desk's middle drawer, the two towers of drawers on each side of the desk is another project I'm working on.

Fall Hutch

Don't you all love free stuff? I sure do! I love to scan Craiglist for free stuff around my area, I don't like to go too far away from where I live unless is something so great or something I need badly. So, last week when I saw the ad for these free baskets my three main points were marked!

Something I like/need... Checked 
Close to where I live... Checked 
Works with my schedule... Checked

DIY - Wire Spool Desk Organizer

I hope you all have had a great holiday weekend!
I was working things in the garage and while in all that cleaning and organizing, I decided to begin doing something with all these spools, they're taking up a good chunk of space.  :/

Make an Easy Tablecloth for any Occasion

It looks like I'm on a train with wooden spools!
They follow me. Wherever I am, there they are, or so it looks like.

A couple of week ago I went to Hancock Fabrics, I was bringing my daughter to meet some friends and since it was very close to this store, I decided to get in. As usual, I immediately headed to the back of the store for the clearance section.

Fall Decor with DIY Fall Signs

I've been very slowly cleaning up the garage, bringing the tools back to where they belong which is good, because I finally found one measuring tape I really like, I've been looking for it for months! It's the only one I have that gives me the measurements on the fractional read, 1/8 -1/4 -3/8-1/2.... I still get confused figuring out if 3/8 is bigger than 3/4 or is it the other way around?! Anyways, I found it and I'm happy.
