April in Review

Can you believe it’s May 1st? C-R-A-Z-Y!

Just in case you missed anything, here is April in review!

I kicked off the month with my 3rd $30 Thursday project, a Spoon & Pallet Hook Rack:

Then, I built a fabric wrapped frame with things that were laying around.

After that, I decided to give our mudroom bench another makeover.

I also shared my home on A Woman’s Haven.

Then I put my stash of cardboard to good use and made cardboard numbers for our mudroom coat rack.

I scored big time at the thrift store with my new headboard and footboard… PB Style!

I also put my sewing machine to work and made this a-dorable grain sack inspired burlap pouch.

Then, I decided it would be fun for YOU to ask me questions for an upcoming “About Me: Q & A” post.

I added this lovely sunburst stick wreath to our powder bathroom…

We finally finished our new PB style metal & wood side table for the laundry room.

After having a major crush on boxwood wreaths, I now have my very own!

To end the month, and to keep with sprucing up our mudroom, I made a PB inspired sign, farm style!

I love each and every one of them! What’s your favorite project?

I’m already looking forward to May… and this week brings another edition of $30 Thursday, which is tomorrow!

See you then!

Lovely comments so far...

  1. I can’t believe it’s May already either :-) You’ve done so much! so many great projects! :-) I’m sure May will be a big and fun month for you as well Shayna! can’t wait to read tomorrow’s post “$30 Thursday”!!!

  2. I love all of the projects but my favorite has to be that beautiful bed !!! I’ve been married 42 years and we’ve always “fixed up” furniture finds, etc. I wouldn’t trade our things for any showroom furniture anywhere.

    Great job. Keep those wonderful ideas coming.
