Off to the farm

Hurray! We're going to the farm this weekend! Can't wait! Need to take care of a few things while we're there. No. 1 on the list is to have the exterminator come out and treat for scorpions again. I do NOT like them coming into the house. I know I'm in the country, people (it's what everyone keeps telling me), but I don't have to put up with stingy things creeping around. ugh. So, I'm glad the bug man will be out to squirt his magic dust around. :)
Just posting this picture is making my skin crawl!

Of course, it's time to decorate for Fall so that's also on my to do list.  I've been dragging out all my Fall decor to see what I have and want to take:

Pile of stuff!

Then there's the new pieces I've been working on:

new wreath and burlap covered pumpkins

And the thrifted makeovers - like my kitchen clock. It was just plain metal so I used a Sharpie to draw on it and added the sweet phrase:
Good Will find - paid $1.99! Drew cups on with pencil to start with

Then outlined with a Sharpie

Added details and a cute saying! Ready to hang in the B Farm kitchen

And I've gotten my mom's bedroom furniture ready to stain. The bed frame needed to be reglued so Mr. B did that the last time we were there.

Thank you, Bruce!

 I'm using a blue wood stain as I want the grain of the wood to show and blue was Mom's favorite color! t's going to be beautiful. I've already done the stool for the vanity. Here's a sneak peek:

Same fabric as curtains

Can't wait to show off where it's all going! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. It's so fun to pull out fall stuff, isn't it? I'm your newest follower. I wanted to thank you for stopping by Posed Perfection today and leaving me a sweet comment about the Psalm 46 post. It is something we will all struggle with as our lives become more entwined in the age of ipods, iphones, ipads, etc. Thanks again for visiting. I hope you have a blessed week!

  3. OH I like that blue stain! It will be perfect for the bed.

  4. Karen,
    Thanks for the kind comment. Got the bed done this weekend and it looks fabulous! Looking forward to revealing the whole room when done.
