I am falling into the birdcage love, especially the antique ones. I decided to add a beautiful birdcage graphic to a plate stand I made.

I amaze myself. Not because I did anything amazing, but because I decided not to paint this piece. Are you amazed? I usually paint everything. There are lots of reasons to paint a piece. Lots of pieces I come across just have to be painted. Some just look better painted, and I love painted furniture.
I picked up this chair this past weekend at an estate sale. It was in great condition except for the cushions. That is an easy fix.

Happy beginning of the week! I try my best to add scripture to our daily lives. I have a chalkboard in my kitchen I write a weekly Bible verse or one of the 10 commandments on. This is a great reminder for my family and it helps to teach my kids some verses that are worth memorizing.
I wanted to make some actual verse of the week boards and here is what I came up with.

There is just something about this Bible quote that touches me. I have an ornament with this on it and I love putting it in the front of the tree every year. It is a perfect quote to go with a photo display. We are all so thankful for our children, it fits perfectly.
"Every good and perfect gift is from above." James 1:17
I took the end of a table I had cut off to make this sign. The other section of the table was used for this two tone dresser.
I painted it white with primer and paint. I then printed off this Bible verse and traced it onto the board. Painted over the trace marks with black paint.

I have a few of these headboards and crib parts still so I decided this winter to try to build them all. I won't post them all, but I thought I would show you this one.
The first bench I made from the end of a crib turned out great so I knew I would make it again.
I won't go into all the details on this one since I did a very thorough tutorial on the first one.
