But my favorite and dearest to my heart is knowing Jesus took all that pain for us just to give us everlasting life. And all we have to do is call on him, how amazing is that! Everlasting Love is what that is!! It truly overwhelms me.
So however you are celebrating this Easter, I hope you know you are truly loved!!!
When I find an incredible product I can’t help but share it with you all. And this organizer is amazing. It is not only super functional but pretty too.
I have tried making my own command center from some ideas I seen on Pinterest, It didn’t look so good. So when I found this I was blown away. I can hang the pails on it to hold all my paint brushes. No more searching everywhere because the jar fell over.
Organization is key.
I cant tell you how efficient this has made my weeks. I now have my menu in one place, not a hundred. My to do’s are pinned to the corkboard and any appointments are written down for both of us to see. Can you tell I’m excited!
And guess what they are having a great sale!

Yay!! Spring is officially here. It is supposed to be warmer this week with a lot of rain in Michigan. And then cold again. so there will still be projects to do inside. My first one is this Goodwill bench transformation.
I bought this bench from the thrift store that had little blue and white ducks across the top. I knew it had potential. I debated bleaching the wood but was afraid the ducks would not come out.
So I sanded it down real good and cleaned it with a degreaser. I could feel grime on it.
I painted it with milk paint I had received from Vintage Rose and Grace Etsy shop. I loved this paint it covered perfectly and sanded off in all the perfect areas I wanted it too. You can click on her name to take you to her shop. There are so many beautiful colors. I’ll definitely be using this again.
I then put an exterior poly on it because when it eventually gets nice her in Michigan I hope to set it out on my porch and put a plant on it. You can see another project here
Here is the before and after:
I couldn’t help but think this little bench is like me, God just keeps working on me daily as I continue to look up to Him for guidance, and working to transform me into what He needs me to be.
Today I am Going to Share with you Five Planters I have Found for my Porch and Deck.
I know before long we will be outside planting all the flowers. Maybe your lucky enough to already be doing that. Here in Michigan we have a little bit to go yet but I want to be ready. These all look beautiful while serving a purpose and if you have prime shipping on Amazon that is even better! Still they are a great price for the product you are getting. Just click on the photos to see the product description.
Love this white one above both of these would be great for veggie planting too.
The one above would be great for my lettuce bed and is raised so it would be so much easier on my back.
I am thinking of getting two of the one above for by my porch steps.
And because I love a classic white.
I love these copper look a likes and they come in a set of two for a great price.
Now to make a decision!
Disclosure: I make a small amount if you buy from the provided links. Thank you so much for your support it means the world.
I’m not sure if that’s the right title. But I am going to call it that. I have wanted one of these cubby things for a long time. I have seen them at antique store but they are so expensive. Then I was going to buy one from Hobby Lobby. As I was considering it my hubby said “why don’t we just make one and then it will be real wood” he is so smart!
We bought 1×6 lumber and a sheet of 1/4″ luan. We cut the pieces to the size I wanted. Mine is 30″ 26″ after making the box we cut the middle pieces for the cubby tops and bottoms. We used the chop saw to make a cut into the middle boards so the luan pieces would slide right in. The top and bottom boards only need a cut into one side.
Above we added our trim pieces to the fronts of shelves to add a ledge. Then we cut luan into our slider pieces. We decided to sand and stain everything first before putting it all together. After that we used the nail gun to nail it all together. Then I added these gold metal drawer tabs.Just click on the photo to see more.
I hope you like this DIY! If you have any questions feel free to ask.
I definitely am, It has been unusually warm here the last few days and I can’t get enough of it.
I am joining some other bloggers today on Wednesday the tenth to show you a craft I did on the tenth for ten dollars or under. This is something I love to decorate out for the different seasons. And I promise very easy to make.
I call it repurposed can planter, clever huh? 🙂 Not really but it is all I could come up with. I used a reclaimed piece of wood from our barn, You could use a new piece and paint or stain it. Whatever fits your style of decor. You can see it decorated a little differently here.
First if you have a hardwood board like I have you would want to pre drill holes where you need them.
Then drill a hole towards the top of your pails. I have used just regular tomato cans for this project before too and just painted them. Then screw your pails into your board. and decorate however you wish. I added Lambs Ear and a blush pink Peony I found at Walmart.
I hope you enjoyed this DIY and if you make a version of it let me know. I would love to see it.
Today I am joining some other bloggers featuring their upcycle diys. Thank you to Terrie for getting us all together. And if your here you came from Michelle’s beautiful blog.
My upcycle is an old crate I had that I wanted to use as a tray. it had quite a bit of paint splattered on it. In fact when I bought if from an older gentlemen at the flea market, the look my hubby gave me! Well, he was a sweet old man and I have a soft spot when they are selling at a flea market I attribute that to my grandpa when I was younger. He was a junker before junking was cool and would sell his amazing junk at the local flea market. I remember most his line of old bottles all different colors. Cobalt blue, mint green, aqua they were all so beautiful to me even back then. So see its in my veins!!!
Sorry got off on a rabbit trail. Back to my old paint spattered crate.
I gave it a coat of milk paint, love this stuff it sands off in all the right places so easily.
Then I just started adding in what reminds me of Spring:
Vintage plant markers
Vintage bunnies that were my father in laws when he was a youngster (makes me sound old)
And greenery, a live plant in an old terra cotta pot.
Now to have some vintage seed packets would have made this amazing, but I don’t insert, sigh.
