Throwback Thursday: Home Decor and Project Guides

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

For this Throwback Thursday, we’ve rounded up three blog posts that are related to the upkeep of our homes, both indoors and out. Spring and early summer are great times to take stock of things that need repairing, replacing or revitalizing, and we hope these guides will help you check things off that list or give you ideas for future projects.

Thursday’s Theme: Renovations

A list of six things to keep in mind while preparing for a home renovation project, working on a renovation project, and ways to make sure any unwanted furnishings don’t go to waste.

Thursday’s Theme: Deck Safety

Spending time on the deck or a porch (especially with family and friends) is a highlight of spring and summer. First, though, you should make sure your deck or porch is still as safe as it was when it was first built. This blog post offers some suggestions for what to inspect and what to replace, if necessary.

Do you have any handy tips or guides you use every year when the weather starts warming up? Share with us in the comments, and we wish you well with all the projects you take on this year!

Weekly Spotlight: Garden Stakes Under $50

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

April is Garden Month, so every Weekly Spotlight throughout the month of April will be dedicated to garden decor you can find at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. We hope you see something (or a few things!) you like and are able to make your garden as beautiful as can be. First up: Garden stakes under $50.

The heavy-duty iron Garden Stake is simple yet versatile. Its curved hook is perfect for hanging plants, lanterns, wind chimes and other garden decor throughout your yard.

This Rusted Sun Garden Stake offers primitive appeal and sunny charm in your garden or in a flower bed (there are eight more complementary styles to choose from, too!).

Our Terracotta Bird Rain Gauge can be staked into the ground or in a flower pot. Besides adding sophistication to your outdoor living spaces, this outdoor home accent will tell you how much rain has fallen outside.

Beehive Rabbit Garden Stake | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopIron Bird Flag Stake is a customer favorite, and offers a couple different functions in addition to being a stylish accent for your yard. The extend arm can hold a decorative garden flag, the leaf next to the bird can be filled with birdseed or you can let rainwater pool inside to make a little bird bath.

New in our Spring 2018 catalog, the Beehive Rabbit Garden Stake is one of the most decorative garden stakes we offer. The metal surface is treated to withstand outdoor elements and sunshine, and offers a cheerful welcome, especially when placed next to a front door or porch.

End Note: When shopping for any garden stake that will be serving double or triple duty by holding a potted plant or bird seed (like the first Garden Stake and our Iron Bird Flag Stake), we recommend looking at those with double bottom prongs to ensure stability in the ground.
