Do you have outlets in strange places? Or a phone jack hanging in the middle of the wall like I do? Well, here's my simple solution for disguising mine! Hanging these metal baskets
allowed me to camouflage the phone jack and make the phone blend in. My only regret is not doing this sooner! You can seem more awesome ideas for hiding unsightly fixtures on my blog by clicking the link below! ~Vanessa
I've always wanted a potting bench and when I found this one last year at Big Lots my potting bench dreams came true! The problem is that now it looks so pretty all dressed up with mason
jars and a vintage galvanized bucket and cute little wooden boxes that I can hardly stand the thought of getting it all dirty. I know I must actually put it to good use (you know that whole form meets function thing) and that it is very handy for doing actual potting. But, sometimes I wish it could just stay like this forever! ~Vanessa #MayGarden
I love a good makeover story and this Wayfair mirror makeover is no exception! I took on the Wayfair/HomeTalk #DIYChallenge by
transforming a sweet and simple mirror into a coastal beach beauty!
With the addition of rope and seashells this mirror makeover couldn't be easier! The most difficult part is sitting for a few hours gluing rope around and around in circles. The key is to keep your rope tight and even, trimming it off at the end and then looping back around with a new row.
After rope is applied, attach starfish using hot glue. Heavily coat shelf ledge with mod podge and layer with sea shell filler. Allow to dry. Visit me over on the blog for even more photos of this "mirror Cinderella story!"

Our downstairs bathroom has come a long way! From dated and boring to updated with a touch of French Country charm. Damask wallpaper, a burlap vanity skirt, bead board, new faucet,
mirror, light fixture and more! And all done without breaking the bank. Even something as simple as changing out the handle on the toilet can give big impact. I hope you enjoy taking the tour of my French Country Bathroom! Or is it Country French? ~Vanessa
to make an easy wreath for spring and summer! Just add them to a grapevine wreath, fill with faux flowers and Spanish moss and hang! I have a super sunny porch so real plants are out of the question...but that might work for you. Wouldn't it be pretty filled with succulents? Find a complete tutorial on my blog.
