Simple Summer Wreath

I’m most definitely no wreath expert, but I play one online.    I made a yarn wreath for the holidays and liked it so when spring came around, I thought, hey why not make one for the summer too.  So I picked out my favorite flower, the simple yellow daisy, and yarn to match and got to work.  It’s really a very simple wreath, as I [...]

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superhero Letters!

I recently created some hand painted letters in a superhero theme.  It was a really fun project, and I’m currently working on two new ones of Flash and Green Lantern.  I’ll add photos of those as well once complete. These are meant to hang on a wall, but they could rest on a shelf.  I used 9″ letters that were 1/2 inch thick, [...]

Operation Cut Door in Half

…and let the light in! We have a tri-level house and on the bottom floor is our laundry room and half guest bathroom.  You have to go through the bathroom to get to the laundry room and the only window is in the laundry room, so I wanted to be able to keep that door open to let sunlight in to the bath and to our downstairs living room.  [...]

Bathroom Facelift

So a few weeks ago I decided I was going to use the rest of the gray paint from the playroom project in September to paint our guest bathroom.  The cabinet was already black, so gray seemed like a great color choice, and I had just enough!  Some of the mini-projects to the facelift were: Paint Countertop w/Rustoleum Countertop coating (see image [...]

DIY Earring Holder

I made this a few years ago so I don’t have a step by step, but it’s VERY EASY!  All you need is an empty frame, screen and hot glue.  I used an old frame I had, just took out the glass.  You can do the same, or find one at a thrift store, or online.  The screen I picked up at Lowes, but you can get that a lot of places too.  I [...]

Living Room Makeover

Lots of PHOTOS BELOW! If you follow this blog at all, you know that almost three years ago we bought a new (old) house. It was built in 1963 and hadn’t been updated much. Since we’ve moved in, I’ve been slowly updating the house.The first project was the living room. As you can see there were old shelves on the fireplace, and the [...]

Kitchen Before & After

Here is our kitchen when we moved in, and here is our kitchen now…It was yellow for a short time as well, but I couldn’t take it anymore after two years so it recently turned into brown There is a sneak peak below of what color yellow it was. Take a look and you’ll understand why after two years I was going to go crazy, or change [...]

Giant Ruler Growth Chart – DIY

So when we moved into our house in the garage on the wall is where the family before us marked the growth of their children.  When re-painting the garage, it gave me a sad feeling that the history on the wall was about to disappear forever.   It made me hope that they had gotten some good photos of it to save forever. A few months later, our [...]
