My Mom gave me this old mailbox that she used to store her garden tools. We put it on a post and placed it near our garden so that the tools are within reach and protected. I though my mom had a great idea for storage and thought I’d share this idea.

For an upcoming golf outing supporting our girls and boys high school basketball teams, each family is asked to donate a $50 basket for the silent auction. I saw this idea on Pinterest. I purchased a large frame at Michaels for $10 on sale and $40 worth of scratch off lottery tickets. Hope people bid on it!

This is the 3rd time that I have refinished this coffee table. My neighbor was throwing it away. I painted it. Stenciled it, repainted it. I saw on Pinterest where you could add 1 by 4 boards to the top and give it a farmhouse look. I really like the way it turned out.
This is how it looked when I started.
I purchased 7 boards from Lowes's for about $2.00 a piece and cut them to desired lengths.
I glued them on top with wood glue. Screwed them in from the bottom, gave it a coat of dark walnut stain and then put a coat of polyurethane on top.

This Easter, I am honoring Grandma Malone by making her Amish sugar cookies. Sprinkle your cookies before baking with your choice of color. I chose bright yellow.
Here is the recipe and the cookies are delicious!
