I have an easy, 5 minute project for you today. It’s for some glass jars that I picked up at a thrift store. They’re very basic, and I bet you can pick them up at any yard sale or thrift shop in the area… but I decided they were a little boring. I like the […]
I have been wanting to replace the little secretary desk by our front door for a long time. I knew I probably wanted a book case and had my eye out for one that was just the right size. Ding-ding-ding! We have a winner! I love how this beachy bookcase makeover turned out! Last […]
I was going to do an April Fool’s post today, but that just seemed like to much work, so I thought I’d share this super easy tip for re-vamping a few ornate planters I had. This is the latest in my vow to work through my pot addiction… a shabby chic flower pot make over. […]
I don’t usually do much to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day, and this year with Easter coming along 2 weeks later, I really didn’t want to put much effort (or money) into it. So how about this? A quick and easy St. Patty’s project using weeds and rocks from your yard. Can’t get much cheaper […]
This was such a quick and easy project that I forgot to take photos along the way! I use champagne buckets as planters or floral containers all the time. They’re simple metal containers that I abuse until they look like this… Sometimes I leave them like this for a vintage-y look, but other times I […]
Happy Friday! I am waking up in the rainy and gorgeous Portland, Oregon area today! While I’m off visiting friends, I wanted to share a Quickie-Make-Over with you. I hope it isn’t blasphemous to refer to any nativity as a crappy nativity, but that’s kind of what this one from the Dollar Store started out […]
If you’re like me, you love photos of your friends and family around you. If you’re like my husband, you complain that you can’t move around the house for fear of knocking over row after row of framed photos like so many dominoes. Compromise! Practicality wins out, except during the month of December. I bring […]
I love to change up my mantel for the seasons. A way to do this quickly is to decorate using items that are easily interchangeable or are reversible. Double sided artwork and a little spray paint can make it happen in just a few minutes.
Last year, Sandra from Sawdust & Paper Scraps made a very cool Halloween candelabra, and I really, really wanted to make one too, but didn’t get around to it. (I met Sandra at The Haven Conference last June, and I must confess I have quite the Girl Crush on her… she is awesome!) Sandra’s is a fab tutorial on […]
These black and white pumpkin topiaries are an easy to make project. All you need are a few items from the Dollar Store and some paint! The ravens holding up the Halloween banner make the project extra fun. Check out the easy tutorial.
