I've been seeing DIY chandelier and light fixtures all over Pinterest so I finally decided to dive and (hopefully) make a tad bit more simplified version of what I have seen out there.

The possibilities are endless.

I know what you're thinking: "Oh great, another Christmas ornament wreath tutorial," BUT my tutorial comes with a twist! I made my wreath one-handed. That's right, a glue gun in one hand and a cocktail in the other. Hazardous, perhaps, but my point is if you prefer your projects to be rather quick and effortless...so much so that you can slam down a shot of tequila while working on it, then read on my friend...
So many times when my husband and I get a dinner out alone, we talk about bills, work and the daily grind. This year for Valentine's Day, I thought I would plan a dinner in and make some conversation stones so that we talk about other things than what is going on day to day.
Air vent covers aren’t built for looks. At least the builder-basic ones aren’t.We had a standard white cover on our air exchange vent in the basement.When the wall was white and it was mostly used for storage, I didn’t notice or care very much:
Making special presents is something I love to do. As it was our wedding anniversary coming up I decided to make something nice for my husband instead of buying a present in the shop. I always try and go with the tradition and this year it was 7 years - copper & wool traditionally. I decided to make a wooden sign with carved personal details and some copper detailing.
Decoupage is a traditional paper craft – the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts. The word decoupage comes from the French verb decouper, ‘to cut out’. It was in the 17th century that the craft reached its height of popularity with aristocrats, noble ladies as well as the more humble practitioners trying out the art of decoupage. Today, decoupage remains a popular craft with far reaching variations and many crafters’ use decoupage to add dimension to their work.Lets look at an up cycling project today using this versatile technique.

My friend (and if you read any of my other posts you know exactly 'which friend' I'm talking about) had a dresser in her bedroom. I wanted it. Like bad.She had tried to find me one like it, but I ended up with 'Gerard' (Garage Garbage finds new life) instead. While Gerard turned out wonderful, he still was not a good fit for what I needed in my bathroom. Too dark (and handsome LOL), too short , too wide and not near enough storage... sigh.Several weeks later she happens to find another dresser that matches the rest of her bedroom suite... aaaannnndddd I got the other dresser that I really wanted! Got in my truck and chanted 'mine, mine ALL mine!' just about all the way there! I really felt the need to call her 'My Precious' as I was about as obsessed as Gollum was with his ring!Hmmm I adore making over furniture, I may have a problem ...LOL
