Here is the finished product, I will try to do a step by step here soon ! Here is the link if you would like to purchase this one of a kind upcycled shoulder bag

Love this picture

The  week  before my surgery he wanted  to take  me out , a surprise  he said. We went  to the  Swinging bridge restaurant in  Paint Bank .On the  way  back  we  stopped  at  a pull off to look around. I just  happened to be taking  a picture  of this  beautiful  tree and totally overlooked  him  standing  there. When I went  back  and  looked  at  it  I loved  seeing  him  standing  there  like  that. I was  going  to crop him  out lol so  I'd have  the  picture  of  the  tree but no way, I love  it !

Easy DIY log bench

Well this was a easy DIY project ! I had surgery last  week  at Wake Forest  and  today my husband wanted  me to come  outside because he had a surprise  for me. The weeks leading  up to my surgery we had  been  clearly our land  of some  trees. I had  told  my husband  that  I wanted  to  make some log benches for our outdoor soirees, but with  my surgery I kinda put it on the back burner. Today when  he wanted  me to come outside he told  me that  he had made  me something. I was greatly  surprised,  he had made  me a log bench !! It was so simple,  he took a log about  4 foot long and cut it long ways down the  middle.For the  legs he cut two stumps the  same height and notched  the  tops in a "rounded" V so the log bench would  sit right down  in there.  The bench top was screwed in & when  I heal up i will  be putting a coat of polyurethane  on it . In total this  project cost us $0 ! (Pay no attention to the log in front of the  bench he is working on another project lol) 

Please note our cute baby fainting goat modeling on the  bench lol

Easy DIY curtains from sheets

I needed  some  curtains  but  as always  I couldn't  spend a fortune,  so I got crafty ! I bought two  black twin sized flat sheets. I cut a slit in each  end of the  sheet that  has the wide fold ... ( I don't  know  if  that  made sense lol ) but I did  take  a picture  so  you  could  see ! I cut a slit just big enough  to  put the  rod through.  After cutting the  slit just slide in the curtain  rod , hang and  you're  done  !  These  are  great  if  you  need  curtains  for  a wide window , it's way  cheaper  then  buying curtains.  Two twin size sheets cover  a window up to 132 inches wide , they  are 96 inches long. If they  are  a little  long  just hang them  higher,  it will  make  the  room  look  bigger  or just let  them  pool up on the  floor ! In total  this  DIY project cost me $12 ( 5 for the two sheets and  2 for the  rods ) Good luck :)

DIY coat rack -Old lumber into a coat rack

Well recently  my teenage son (who does blacksmithing ) made some  hand forged hooks . I went  to  my scrap lumber pile and  found  a old  board & cut it to  the  size  I wanted. I screwed  on the  hooks and  made a beautiful  rustic looking coat rack. I will  be posting  some  of the  coat racks on etsy ( 2Kraftychics is the  shop ) I also found  some  scrap lumber and  made some  other  coat racks. I painted them  with some  paint  I had  on  hand. You  could  easily  make  these  with  old knobs or hooks.They  are  a easy DIY  project  that  is  also  budget friendly !
