I hope everyone has had a great week!
Tucker and I have been enjoying our walks around one of the big beautiful Boise parks downtown that's opened to off leash dogs only during the winter. You can see from Tuck's big smile how much he loves it! After a splash in the icy river and tossing the ball around he took a snooze on his bed, while I snuggled up on the sofa this afternoon to share some Friday Finds with you.
This little chair bought at auction by Angie from Knick Of Time really speaks to my farmhouse design aesthetic. I love the aged patina of the original wood finish and the grain sack-covered seat that Angie made and stenciled to cover the old damaged caning.
At Practically Perfect Home Lisa raided her husband's office for this little nightstand to paint. I admire how some (very talented) people can experiment with paint as they work and come up with such happy endings!
Zefi at Junk 4 Joy made this rusty old crown (that isn't old at all) from a new tin can. I MUST have one (or ten) of these!
Julie's husband over at EAB Designs disappeared into his shop for a while to design and make her this handy wooden pom pom making tool. That's just so romantic (as in a crafty woman, hey girl, kind of romantic.) I'm pretty sure I could bury myself in pom poms, and my husband wouldn't notice!
At Shabby Love Melissa made these little cement stars with an industrial vibe. I think they're so cute in this wooden basket, and I can picture them in many different vignettes. Hop on over to Melissa's blog to see how to make them, a super fun project!
Only Gail from My Repurposed Life could work her magic on an old dresser and come up with this absolutely adorable and practical children's Lego table. The top of the table opens for storage, as well as the little benches that tuck underneath. SO creative!
Jody and Stan always have something pretty going on at Rooted In Thyme. Jody thought up some wonderful kitchen garden baskets to make for her friends. Isn't this the best gift idea?
Garden Gate eNotes shows how to use milk jugs as mini green houses for sprouting spring seedlings, even in the snow. I'll be giving this money-saving tip a try!
I think I moaned out loud when I saw Yvonne's slow cooker braised short ribs over at Stone Gable. These look SO delicious, and wait till you see how easy they are to make!
If you like cinnamon rolls and cheesecake, hold onto your hat for this Friday Find! Winnie at Something Sweet has shared a wonderful recipe for cheesecake with cinnamon dough balls. Oh my!
That wraps up today's finds. I hope you have a great weekend!
