I love Halloween! Not the scary haunted houses or movies, because I'm a big chicken with a huge imagination- which is not a good combo. But the dressing up, fun parties, decorations and of course the candy!! And since we don't want to scare the children around here ;) I stick to more fun decorations at our house for Halloween. So this year I made these cute and easy mummy mason jar guys to decorate our foyer table with. They are adorable, and so easy to make it's scary!!
So years ago I saw a coffee table that had a mosaic wood pattern that slowly transitioned from a darker wood to a lighter wood. It’ been stuck in my mind ever since, there's just something about that style that I find so cool and attractive. I also happened to need a set of new nightstands. I decided this was an oppurtunity to finally try and recreate that coffee table I saw years ago, but put my own twist on it!What a project this was. Let me tell you, this probably took me close to a month to finish. I was only working on it in my spare time on weekends and after work, since my day job has been really busy lately. Definitely one of my longest projects, but totally worth it! I’m really happy with how it all turned out!If you like this build and my photography check out my Instagram.

I had some canvas wall pictures that I tried to paint over to give a new look. It just wasn’t doing it for me so I decided to try something else. I love the look of burlap and had some leftover from my cafe curtains. My husband got me a Cricut to make my own designs. So here is my makeover of some much needed canvas art. Hope you enjoy.
After getting locked out of my house once, I vowed NEVER AGAIN! So I combined two trendy DIYs- stepping stones and mosaics- and added a secret key hider underneath.

Making fun things for the garden is one of my favourite things to so so I decided to create some repurposed garden flowers using thrifted strainer steamers.
Squirrels love bird seed and if they get into your bird feeder they will empty it in a day! It becomes too expensive! The gears started turning and got me thinking about how I could build a diy bird feeder that only birds could enter but still be a nice addition to look at in the garden.
No matter the season, the thrift store always has treasures just waiting to be found! I especially love shopping during gardening season though because the possibilities for planters and garden decor abound. All it takes is a little patience and a wide-open imagination.
Today, we wanted to show you how we dealt with our unsightly hose in front of our office. The obvious solution was to grab a brand spankin’ new hose from the local hardware store, but how do we keep the new hose from following down the same path of entanglement and muck? We knew that one of those plastic wheels would help us make things tidy, but we SO did not want that eye sore to compound the injury that our air conditioner was already creating. Nope. We wanted somethin’ purdy! Since we have been playing around with so many pipe and copper projects, we felt like it was the natural choice for materials. Besides, copper has THE BEST patina when exposed to the elements. Watching it transform slowly over the years from an orangey metal to a bright teal is absolutely amazing! Get ready for some functional garden art!Original Blog PostPhoto Cred: Anya McInroy
I had an old plastic resin Birdbath that I was tired of painting year after year and wanted something different. I seen an old lamp base one day when I was out browsing the thrift stores and instantly I knew what I was going to use it for, and the rest as they say is history!

I had found this old forgotten toolbox at a garage sale and just knew I had to have it, even tho I didn't know what I was going to do with it at the time. When I got home, I scoured the internet for inspiration. I saw a picture of a toolbox on the wall that was used to store books. Well, the only walls in my home that are empty are in the bathroom and the lightbulb went off! So here is the easy and quick project I did using that old forgotten toolbox.
