Everyone needs a square pumpkin, or 4

Written by Jessica Chaffins

Did I mention I love the fall?!?! Well I kept seeing all these pins on Pinterest for all kinds of pumpkins made from lumber….sooo again I raided my husband’s scrap pile and found some good pieces to make me some of my own pumpkins.  These are just on a smaller scale (largest one is a 5 x 5 piece of wood) for me to have inside on a table top.

My husband and I had a small intimate wedding with only immediate family and a few close friends.

Well here I go again….as I am sure you will learn, I do not have the privilege of having enough storage space (but really what mom thinks she does), so why not have something that will be useful (hopefully) as well as visually appealing. One luxury that I do have, is plenty of wall space. So last year I used my some of my cast iron cookware as my kitchen decor. I love all the character within the wood, now I want to continue in my dining room with the similar idea.

After taking a few measurements of what room I had to play with, I knew I had plenty of room to get a 5-6 bottle rack to work. So I raided my husband’s lumber stash to see what I could find to brainstorm with. After a little while I decided on these pieces and how I preferred for it to look.
