5 Inexpensive Scrap Wood Projects

2018-11-20T21:10:42+00:00

Well, week three is behind me and the toughest week is ahead of me.  Had I not done this when there are so many sales and whatnot, it probably wouldn’t be that hard at all.  We’ll just have to see what I can’t live without come Friday. Let’s recap week three, shall we? I finally [...]

Mini Side Table from Three Boards

2018-10-16T19:49:50+00:00

Have you seen those side tables that slide under the front or side of a couch so you can set drinks and stuff on them without taking up all the space of a full end table?  I really like them.  Maybe it’s just laziness but it’s pretty handy to not have to constantly lean over [...]

Rustic Towel Hook

2018-10-02T23:44:49+00:00

Isn’t it funny how one project often leads to another?  Okay, I’ll admit, sometimes it’s not so funny once you get down to the work.  But ideas are great!  The last project I shared with you spurred a new one that was never even on the radar. Remember the last project? With the new wall [...]

A Look Back – August 2018

2018-08-28T22:01:35+00:00

We’re one month closer to a new year!  It’s hard to believe were inching in on Fall.  Like always, August was full of projects.  There weren’t any fun life events this month to speak of so we’ll jump in to what I accomplished over the month in the world of 7MD. First, let’s start out [...]

No Fail DIY Vintage Distressed Painted Sign

2018-07-30T22:21:07+00:00

I love the look of a perfectly distressed wood sign.  The chippy paint, the aging, and the dents and dings – I want them all.  I’ve seen so many different tutorials on how to distress a wood sign but none of them really worked for me.  Through some trial and error, I’ve found an easy, [...]

Installing Designer Peel & Stick Tile

2018-06-27T02:34:46+00:00

I live in a plain ol’ builder basic house.  While I typically find builder basic quite boring, it makes for a sort of blank canvas to get creative.  For quite some time, I’ve been trying to think of ways I could update my bathrooms without investing too much money.  This home is not my forever [...]

Whew!  I haven’t been as busy as I was in May in a loooong  time!  I was pushing hard to get all of my own projects done for the 7MD Curb Appeal Month and getting them shared with you.  I’ll tell you what, though, I love how my home looks from the front now.  Now [...]

How to Build A Herringbone Storage Bench

2018-05-16T23:12:20+00:00

In case you thought I was one of those people who always have a plan mapped out and get my work done ahead of time, you would be wrong.  When I hatched the hairbrained scheme to do a curb appeal month, I really only had a couple projects in mind.  And since May this year [...]

DIY Shaker Style Shutters

2018-05-04T15:03:49+00:00

*I was provided paint from DecoArt for this project.  Although they provided the paint free of charge, all opinions are my own. For years I’ve looked at the front of my house just trying to think of what I could do to give it some life.  It’s not in disrepair but it is pretty dang [...]

DIY Shiplap Address Sign

2018-05-02T01:18:20+00:00

It’s getting warmer outside and that makes me want to get out and do all the projects to spruce up around the house that I’ve been planning all winter.  In case you all forgot, I am a huge planner.  There may not always be much execution of said plans but the plans are made.  This [...]
