Stained weathered wood

If you like the rustic look but your piece doesn't lend itself to the traditional grey seen typically with barn wood, then this might be the answer. This weathered wood has been washed and dry stained with a brown stain.

Vintage Music Mat

The mat in this frame is made of vintage music that is dry mounted to the mat board. This would be great for music certificates.

Halloween Fall Display

Birdhouses, signs, coffee table and flower pot, tomato
and the leaves are all 'Made in Chin'.
Pumpkin and corn not quite Chin but locally grown.

Outdoor side table.

I made this side table the same height as a TV table 
so we can eat on the deck but not in our laps.

same table in green.

Deck cabinet

New top, new bottom, new colour, new baskets.

Rusty Nail Signs

The name of this collection comes from the fact that 
whenever possible we add a rusty nail to the weathered wood sign.

Painted Country Quilt Rack

 quilts, blankets, towels, whatever!

Magazine Holder

 This project is built from construction waste
 then weathered with steel wool in vinegar.

Add some brown vinyl lettering and magazines and voila!!
This piece would look really cute painted in antique white
 for a painted country look.

Shabby Frames + Vintage Wallpaper

I added some vintage wallpaper to the shabby frames. These can be left as is or the wallpaper can serve as a mat if you add your own photo or print.

Farmhouse Table

This table is 7' x 3' and has seated 12. The top is made from reclaimed rough fir and the legs are from reclaimed shipping wood.

There is no stain on the top, just varnish.

Chippy Paint Chair

Chippy paint chairs are the perfect example of renewing something old and then making it old again. This one has been painted dark brown first and then an antique white. Then sanded and scraped to create the shabby look.

Apple Crates for Storage

I like the idea of vintage apple crates for storage, however they are getting hard to find and when you find them they are pretty beaten up. More like battered chic than shabby chic. So I decided to build one myself. This is the first one and I would make some changes to the next. First the bottom is too heavy and second I figured out after the fact how to quickly make the handles.
So I made it big enough to store papers.... or

carry apples to the donkeys!
