Or in my case, pallet wood. I found a stack of pallets lying by the dumpster at our local garden store and went inside to ask if I could have them. They said sure. I’m sure they were just as glad to get rid of […]
Truth, right? The beauty of this beautiful world, especially America – is that we can be whatever we want. This is something that we teach our kids every day beginning when they are just a toddler and we ask them what they want to be […]

I have decided that there are three types of materials I primarily like to work with: wood, metal and glass. I’ve been collecting ideas for crafty projects on Pinterest made with all three. Check out my boards if you want some inspiration! Crafty with Wood […]
I found this fantastic vintage sewing machine base at a little picker’s heaven store near Ardmore, AL. It’s just a little ways down the road from the guy who has a building full of stuff I mentioned earlier. I’m not even sure if the place has a name, but it’s right on Highway 53 north of Huntsville. If you want to go just drive up 53 and look on the right for a tiny building with a TON of stuff out front.
I think the sewing machine base was $30 and in really good shape considering it was sitting out front only covered by a tarp to protect it from the weather. Inside the store I found the metal drawers for $5 each. I spray painted the sewing machine base a bronze color and then spray painted each of the drawers a different pastel shade. I also added a chipboard label to the fronts of the drawers.
