Make my lemonade. My Rainy Days. Natural Branch Coasters. Making a set of coasters from a fallen tree will allow the beauty of that wood to live on and tell the story in its rings.

Natural Branch Coasters

This project goes perfectly with the Branch Coat Rack I made a few months ago. It was a sad day when the largest, oldest tree on my street was hacked down and unceremoniously chucked into construction waste bins. The 50’ Western Red Cedar still had a lot of good years left but got in the way of developers’ dollar signs and no amount of reasoning could sway them. Neighbours came to say goodbye, walking through the wreckage, collecting a memento or two; tears were shed. It’s amazing the impact a tree can have and the sense of loss for one treated with so little respect. I collected a few thick branches to turn into sets of coasters that I will pass onto neighbours who remember their kids climbing those same limbs, many, many years ago.

The project is simple but it will take some time to cut and sand each piece. Materials: Directions: 1. 2. 3.

Lately we’ve been getting more requests for furniture DIY projects.

salvaged barnwood headboard

Luckily this awesome tutorial from Sarah Torrence of 508 Restoration & Design for a salvaged barnwood headboard landed in my inbox, and was just too pretty to pass up. Due to their size and the amount of use they receive, headboards can be intimidating, even if the form is fairly straightforward. Sarah had demystified the process and given us a great starter project for anyone looking to give their bedroom a bit of that rustic, organic feel a perfect quick and easy refresh for fall. Thank you so much for sharing, Sarah! —Kate Read the full how-to after the jump! This project was born because we needed a headboard, we already had some fantastic oak barn wood and we were ready to build something that was meaningful to us.
