What A Ride 2018 Was! Let’s Recap!

2018-12-18T20:46:14+00:00

Happy holidays, folks!  I hope the season is finding you will with at least most of your sanity in tact!  I just finished my last order for the year and will get to spend the next couple weeks doing nothing.  Yeah, right.  I can’t leave well enough alone so I’m sure I’ll find myself getting [...]

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 [...]

DIY Wood Lath Wall

2018-09-12T11:28:49+00:00

So, I have this very angle-y hallway.  It’s actually one of the things that sold me on this house.  I like things that are different and unique. Even though I like it, it’s proven to be a bit difficult to decorate.  I have one wall that has stumped me the whole time I have lived [...]

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 [...]

DIY Lumber Cart for Small Spaces

2018-04-04T02:40:53+00:00

Who’s ready for another installment of the Shop Upgrade Series??  I don’t know about you, but I know my shop is.  Possibly the biggest hurdle in shop organization is lumber and scrap storage.  It’s slowly taking over my shop and every time I try to clean it out, I want to keep it all.  You [...]

Shop Upgrade Series – DIY Scrap Wood Push Block

2018-02-06T23:26:38+00:00

It’s time for another installment of the Shop Upgrade Series!  I promise this one is quick and easy.  Like, I surprised myself how fast it went.  I was watching stories on Instagram one day and saw Tim at Woodward Builds (I promise I’m not going to copy him for every upgrade! Ha!) had posted a [...]

DIY Reusable Stencil for Under $1

2018-02-05T03:16:10+00:00

Recently a friend asked me if I could make him a stencil to help him paint stars on his flags and he wanted it to be reusable.  I knew I had the cut file and I could make a stencil but I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to make one that was reusable.  [...]

Easy Faux Iron Pipe Side Table

2017-08-27T23:47:31+00:00

In my post about 30 ways to upgrade your shop, I talked about the saw horses I put new boards on and how I was going to use the old boards on a new project. I considered many different projects to use them on but ultimately decided on an industrial style side table.  I wanted [...]

DIY Herringbone Brick Tile

2017-08-21T23:29:55+00:00

In the last post, I showed you how I updated my small laundry room. The update with the biggest impact was by far my herringbone brick tile floor.  You guys, I’m absolutely in love with this floor!  I did this project 100% by myself and you can too.  Tiling can be very intimidating but it [...]
