Aqua Blue....Turquoise....very similar colors....sometimes I think the color terms are interchangeable. I'm calling this makeover aqua blue. Sometimes I have small furniture pieces and
lots of small things like frames and I plan to paint them all the same color. So I just have a fun few hours and paint all of them at once!! It's a real time saver to do it that way. I painted all these pieces in just a few hours in my carport.
I'm doing a makeover on my screen porch and I'm doing it on a shoestring budget! The screen porch was built last year over a part of our existing deck and the floors were less than
pretty. When pricing everything I wanted to do on the porch with almost no money, I decided to stain the floors in a semi-transparent white. When I got the stain on, I wasn't thrilled so I experimented with wiping a little of the stain off to give them a distressed look. Here's what I came up with! This isn't for everybody, some of you guys might not like it-I understand, but I'm happy and I spent only $33.00 at Home Depot for the stain!
Don't underestimate the butterfly – it's more than just a pretty garden addition! There are 561 known butterfly species in the United States and Canada, all of which pollinate your
flowers. Encourage butterflies to visit your yard and pollinate your plants by making a butterfly feeder. It's easy!

Note: Some evidence suggests dyes may have negative health effects on humming birds. If you have humming birds in your region, we suggest making this sugar solon without dyes and making your jar extra colorful, instead!
I love how versatile Mod Podge is. I've used it on metal, wood and plastic, but never on glass...until now. I found some printable labels and made these vintage-looking apothecary jars
out of spice jars to store bathroom items to keep by the sink. It was an easy and inexpensive way to add cute and colorful storage for our guest bathroom. The link to the printable labels and full tutorial can be found in the link below.
I don't like to sew. In fact, I avoid it at all cost. But there are those times when you just simply can't find exactly what you are looking for or when you find it you don't want to
shell out the big bucks! This led me recently to making these Drop Cloth Chair Skirts for my dining room and I'm really loving how they turned out. And since I used leftover drop cloths this project was absolutely FREE. My favorite kind of all! Full tutorial on my blog. ~Vanessa
I was thrilled to do a project using graphics from the Graphics Fairy and have it featured on the DIY Graphics Fairy site.
We started with a buffet that had been repaired over its lifetime and was not living up to its potential.
After sanding and painting with homemade chalk paint I hand painted a bee motif using a projector as a guide then we waxed it and married it to a beautiful mirror we had to create a server for our dining room. I would love to know what you think...To see the whole guest post and learn about the process... just click on the link!
