About Me

I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

I would like to try my hand at carpentry...

   If you knew me you would laugh...not a handy andy am I..   I posted a picture a few days back of bed
made out of wood, for flowers.. And I am trying to figure out how to make one..I don't want new lumber, want it to look a bit weathered.. I have an old dresser drawer in the garage, salvaged for the handles perhaps I could use that?  It is a cute little project if I could pull it off.

   I think after lunch I will go out to garage and get that drawer and see what I can come up with... all you crafty creative ladies out there are such an inspiration....

Your idea sounds great to me. I think we learn best by doing. It's a cute idea too! Keep us posted! Hope you have a sunshine filled day perfect for doing "carpentry work"

I'm with the others who've commented. Pallets and your dresser drawer would be perfect for your garden 'bed'. I'd use the drawer for the main bed, tall square columns or nearly square in shape, for the bed posts, and flat slats from the pallets as the head board and base board. It sounds so cute, I wish I could do it, too!
