Cabinet Doors Repurposed into Dairy Signs

Where has the time gone.
This past week has flown by, but it always does when you are at the beach!!!
My husband surprised me with an unexpected blessing.
He was asked to deliver a car to Fort Myers Beach, Florida.
We were only responsible for our food and lodging,
they were covering gas, a rental car and paying him for his time driving down and back!
We couldn't pass up the opportunity and so we were off.
It was a long drive, but sooo worth it!
This beach girl was back in her element!
We were able to spend a lot of time walking and relaxing along Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva Island.
We enjoyed great meals at waterfront restaurants and soaked up as much sunshine and warmth as we could before heading home to more freezing temps.
Now we're back home and back to working on projects.
The project I decided to work on first was repurposing two old kitchen cabinet doors.
I picked them up at a Habitat Restore in Blue Ridge, Georgia
a couple weeks ago, while visiting my mom.
They started off looking like this.

Branding and More Burlap Wreaths

Projects haven't been a top priority this week.
Branding has.
This has been on my mind for quite some time and I'm finally working on it.
I've been making sure that my blog, Etsy shop and my social media accounts have a cohesive look.
I've also designed my business cards and ordered them.
I still need to design thank you cards and I'd love to get a stamp with my logo on it and a few other items that I want to include in my Etsy packages.
Here's a peek at my business cards.
The front is pretty simple.
The back has all of the pertinent info on it.

Red Repurposed Cabinet Door Chalkboard

Last week I mentioned that I had been in a red and black mood the week before.
This is the last project that I completed that week that I wanted to share with you.
It is a cabinet door that I picked up at a Habitat Restore.
It was just an unfinished wood door frame with a hole for a knob.

Barb Wire and Horseshoe Wreath

I am very blessed to be great friends with my mom.
She lives about three hours from me in western North Carolina.
I was able to spend two days with her last week and
like always, I came home with goodies.
Two barb wire wreaths were some of the goodies from this trip.
Some time ago, my brother had been visiting with her
and was helping my dad with some of the fencing.
There was some old rusty barb wire they tore down and didn't need,
so rather than disposing of it, he rolled it into wreaths for her.

Spring Daffodil Watering Can Centerpiece

Here in South Carolina we have been super blessed with warmer temps these last few days.
It definitely makes it feel like Spring,
especially when daffodils are blooming everywhere.
I brought a little spring indoors today by creating a centerpiece
using daffodils, a rustic wood tray and a few thrifted watering cans.
I found this set of three cute watering cans last fall
and purchased them to use this spring.

Headboard Repurposed into Bon Appetit Sign

Last week I mentioned that I had been on a red and black kick.
Today, I want to share one of the red projects I finished.
This sign started out as part of a headboard.

Springtime Floral Wreath in Galvanized Container

I've finished up a couple more of those projects that I had started last week.
I seem to have been on a red and black kick.
I'll be sharing those projects soon, but not today.
Today I wanted to share a little more Spring inspiration!

I'm a sucker for anything galvanized,
so when I found these containers for 80% off last summer I grabbed four of them.

Burlap Easter Spring Wreath with Nest and Eggs

I was so inspired last week by the burlap wreaths that Sharon
from Elizabeth & Co. created that I had to make one!
Sharon has been nicknamed "The Queen of Wreaths"
and if you check out her blog you will see why.
I just happened to see her Spring wreath post a few hours before I was heading to Michaels.
Talk about perfect timing!
