There's something about a chunky craftsman window/door trim that makes my heart melt. I think it's the perfect way to add character to any space, but especially those faux farmhouse spaces like our builder grade ranch. The builder left us with a less than desirable trim, so updating the windows with a chunkier trim really gave this area some va-va-voom! This tutorial is fairly simple and only requires the most basic of tools. Check out the tutorial below and visit my post for the full step-by-step

Backyard ponds are truly the jewel of the water feature lifestyle. They contain all the parts of a balanced ecosystem pond--plants, fish, rocks and gravel, and a biological filtration and circulation system. With all parts of the ecosystem in balance, this kind of Koi pond requires very little maintenance from the owner to maintain crystal-clear water that is a healthy environment for Koi and other pond fish.
What's more soothing, peaceful, & calming than that of a babbling Brook or running stream? How can I put that inside? & ooohhh I'd love to walk barefoot in it, even if only in my mind & memories. Some if you may remember a few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to get an outdoor garden Vase & Bowl Fountain for really good price. Hhhmmm, why wait all Winter long & til next Spring to put it up & enjoy it? Ive always wanted a fountain i could watch & hear when relaxing in my garden or on the patio or porch. Nice & larger ones seemed so expensive, I couldn't justify that expense. However, when I found this one, I just had to have it. Instantly the cogs of my brain started turning at breakneck speed & I knew just exactly what I wanted to do with it & where I wanted to put it.

Most thermostats are hidden in a hall way or other inconspicuous place. Mine just happens to be placed on a bare wall that sticks out like a sore thumb. Its placement kept me from hanging art on the wall without making it off centered. I seen these metal racks at Ross for under $20 and it sparked an idea to finally hide my thermostat.***NOTE: By using the wire shelves, venting is not disturbed. The knick knacks are placed adjacent to the full plastic thermostat cover being sure not to obstruct any airflow patterns. This was well thought out to ensure there would be no disturbance to the performance of the equipment. ***
A few years ago, we bought my husband’s childhood home. We’ve been working our way room by room renovating and Dre modeling our house into a home. We have a 15 foot wide stone fireplace in our living room. The fireplace was dark, gray, and dirty looking. Even after cleaning the stone with TSP, it still looked dull, worn and dirty. I had mentioned to my husband that I would like to paint the stone. He objected. Then, one day he says, “You know, if you want to paint the stone fireplace, I’d be okay with that.” It took me two seconds to jump on that project.
This accent wall would be perfect in your living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom - the possibilities are endless!To purchase the materials to make this wall REAL brick was going to be around $800. That’s a lot for an accent wall, considering we made a board and batten wall for basically no cost.Because I didn’t want to spend $800, and I wanted the option to be able to remove whatever we put up, I decided faux brick was the way to go.What to know the best part?It only cost $75!(The panels were $75, we had all of the other materials.)MATERIALS:Faux brick panelsDrywall mudDrywall scraperPaint / waterNail gunCircular sawJigsaw
I have 3 boys and they all have a bad habit of swinging chairs on to 2 legs. Often it ends up with one of them swinging back too far and landing on the floor. Occasionally the strain is just too much for the chair and a leg snaps. Instead of throwing away the latest kitchen chair casualty. I decided to upcycle it into some unique kitchen storage just like I did with my awesome bathroom storage unit (see it here).
