In the Midwest, it finally feels like fall. I actually wore a jacket this weekend. I feel like that deserves a moment of silence.
So, I’m in official fall mode. If it’s still 1000 degrees where you live, I have two options for you:
- Fly to visit us in Illinois. (Bring a jacket.)
- Grab a Pumpkin Spice latte and drink it inside your car with the A/C blasting. Then make a rustic wheelbarrow and fill it with pumpkins.
Both are viable options.
Over the weekend, I worked on tweaking more of our fall decorations – including finishing own version of the rustic wheelbarrow from Home Depot DIH Workshops. (Register for free right now to learn to make your own.)
It’s the cutest little thing – and it is so simple to make using a pre-made crate from Home Depot. So you can have it together in less than an hour.
I stained mine using a mix of Walnut and Gray stains from Miniwax. And then, I added a little personalization with a stencil and paint.
It’s the perfect spot for blankets on the porch.
And, as if that wasn’t enough – it works great as a planter in the garden. I tried it both places and love it both ways.
I may just have to make a second wheelbarrow this week to have one in both places.

And don’t miss this DIH Workshop on Thursday. You can register for free to attend a workshop at your local Home Depot – register and learn more about local workshops online. You can learn how to build décor projects, how to make easy home repairs and how to operate tools through demonstrations and step-by-step instructions. (And the kid workshops are also awesome.)
Thanks to The Home Depot for sponsoring this post and partnering on this project.
