Rustic & Vintage Styled Tray

I love to watch the TV show “Fixer Upper, and their inspiring ideas to use inside and out. The vintage, rustic, and farmhouse looking pieces gives us that loving, traditional, and nostalgic look from out past, making a house into a home.

So when I seen this rustic and vintage styled Family Tray it reminded me of one of those pieces I often see on Fixer Upper.

This Family Tray is big (28″ x 21″) as you can see in this picture! 

It is white distressed, and the message on it reads, Family, love, joy, peace and hope. There are so many ways to use this tray, such as on a table as a centerpiece!

Or how about on a coffee table or ottoman!

Or even on a mantel it looks pretty!

Such a fun piece to add that vintage farmhouse look into your home, and with a message of love! You will be sure to treasure this for years to come!

Where will you put the Family Tray in your house?

Retro Caddy

There are so many ways to use a caddy! I have several all around my house, and this retro one will be next! It is called the Gather Together Kitchen Caddy  but can be used so many ways other than in the kitchen! It measures 101/2″W × 7″D × 5″T, is metal, and the message on the tag on it reads, Gather Together.


It works great to use  this caddy as a collect all on the countertop, to hold greeting cards and other desk top items, on the bathroom to hold beauty supplies, or as a caddy with fun birthday plates, cups, and silverware!

It also works great to create a gift basket, hold coloring books and pencil colors, as a centerpiece with flowers, or candles!

Tea Towel Wall Decor

Do you love to create DIY pieces for your home, or to give as a gift? If so this is such an easy and fun way to make a meaningful wall decor item. With 2 designs to choose from, you can add a scripture message in your dining room or kitchen, or a loving welcoming message in your entry way or living room.

Mary & Martha has 2 tea towels that are designed by Linday Letters that can be used for this project. The Love & Grace Tea Towel or Acts 2:46 Tea Towel. Both of these are available for only $22.

Next I purchased a 20×24 canvas frame. I have found these for as low as low as $5 each in local hobby stores or online sites. In this picture I found a buy on get one free which was $9 apiece. Either way you are making a big picture for less than $40 (with towel shipping and tax), not too bad!

frame

First I ironed the towel so it had no creases in it, laid it face down and centered the canvas on top of it. With thumb tacks I pushed the towel to the back of the wooden frame. Then I could flip it over and see if was centered. Adjust it as needed, and when is exactly where you want it, with a staple gun attached and secured the sides and corners of the towel to the wooden part of the frame.

frame 2

It was so easy! And for approx. $40 made a wonderful gift! So… means I had gotten 2 frames, I got another towel, so I could have a new picture for my home too! What do you think? Do you like it?
