My husband painted the toilet gold. For some reason he has always had a fantasy about owning a gold toilet. Why? Because he's weird. While my daughter and I were out of town in California last week he decided to give the toilet the Midas touch. I've decided to call it "Trump Toilet" Here are the instructions on how to gild your toilet and make yourself a solid gold throne fit for a king. All you need is sandpaper, waterproof primer and gold spray paint. Crown optional.
The holidays are a special time of year for many people. No matter where you live, chances are people are decorating for whichever holiday they are celebrating! I made a pretty cool piece of holiday yard decor using a large piece of PVC pipe and a few accessories!
So I was visiting my mom and saw she had kept all the clear glass vases the flowers came in over the years from the florist. So I decided to paint them. Not a new idea on this website, but I do have a few tips that might help someone trying for the first time.
Before this house, I’d never lived anywhere that had a real mudroom. And although our mudroom is small, I just love it - especially since we've recently revamped it.The first issue we tackled was shoe storage (which, let's face it, you can never have enough of).We started with an ugly little shelving unit that came with our house. Apparently, the old owners didn't want to take it.And actually it fits perfectly between the back door and the mudroom's north wall.
These charred wood candle holders are incredibly easy to make, but they make a big statement in your fall decor!

Every morning I when I walk my dog, Toby, I pass a tree that shreds the cutest littlest pinecones. I can't help but stop and pick a few up and pocket them.I have used a couple of these pinecones in the past with some cute upcycled Christmas cloches I made (see here). I decided to use these pinecones in a totally different way and make a lovely fall/Christmas decoration for my mantle.
My daughter's school had a Trunk or Treat for the 2nd time this year. Each class had a book theme, ours was The Cat in the Hat. I had a great time doing it and most of all seeing it come together.I think anyone can use these great ideas for a birthday party as well.... or even classroom decor. Hope you enjoy.

For many years we have an ikea tv unit, in a beech effect MDF, but sometimes, much as I hate waste I grow to strongly dislike an item. Over the years my taste for interior decor has changed. Modern televisions are growing in size so the search for a new to us tv unit led to considering repurposing a coffee table.
Being a dancer, I love the Nutcracker! My neighbor down the street has these Terra Cotta soldiers that they put out every Christmas and I love them. I decided I was going to make my own and add a twist - make mine a Flower Pot Nutcracker solider! You can see more of my crazy creations here

I love it when people ask me if I can make them something that I’ve never made before. I hardly ever think I can’t make that. Instead, I think how can I make that? Case in point: my friend Beth asked if I could make her a cork board. I’ve never made a cork board before but of course I said yes!Beth has a successful career in the fashion industry and she needed somewhere to pin up samples and orders at her desk. She had been taping things to the wall behind her desk which resulted in the paint slowly chipping away (not quite the inspiring workplace view she was hoping for).
