Backyard Decor. A great touch to any landscaping project, especially for fences and deck areas, is to hang colorful, vintage beverage bottles and old license plates. For this rustic fence we also threw in an old rusty handsaw and shovel. The final product is an eye-catching display that creates a cool vibe in our fire pit seating area. It’s a great conversation piece too.

Fire Pit. S’mores go great by a campfire out in the wilderness, and they go even better at the fire pit right outside your back door.  The heavy lifting of pavers and wheelbarrow loads of filler dirt pay off in the long run. Not only will you enjoy tons of s’mores, but also great conversations around this permanent addition to your deck area.

Water Feature. It’s amazing how simple, yet creative, you can get with a small fountain pump, a water pale, some metal pipe, and a water spicket. Adds a nice trickle to your outdoor atmosphere.

Hanging Flower Jar. This simple and quick build is a great way to liven up a room. A couple of pallet boards, wire, metal strap, and a mason jar. Oh, and some fresh flowers and water of course!

Repurposed Vintage As Gift Wrap. I picked this vintage Pyrex refrigerator container and button for $9 to gift some earrings in. With some cardboard scraps and hot glue you've got something much better than a gift bag and tissue that'd be thrown away!

Water Fall. Nothing brings serenity to your outdoor sitting area like a water fall! Get creative with building the perfect eye-catcher for that corner of the yard that’s unappealing or a waste of space.

Repurposed Vintage Guestbook. We wanted a guestbook for the guest room in our house to log visitors who stayed with us. One vintage Woolworth Stores mini-notebook, some simple design work and printing, and presto!
