I purchased this antique dresser from a friend who lives down the street from me. Isn’t she a beauty? The mirror was in excellent shape, no scratches or anything, which is very rare.
This shutter comes to me from my good friend and neighbor Anita who is sadly moving. She had a couple shutters and 2 old cabinet doors displayed on her walls for years but her new house is lacking in wall space. She thought maybe I could put them to good use. Gladly.But now I find out that the shutters were taken off her family home years ago…they have sentimental value and they have a cool aged patina. I can’t keep her family heirloom but I could repurpose it and give it to her oldest son who just happens to be getting married. And just in case they don’t like heirlooms or shabby chic, I’m giving cash too :).
My mum gave me a bag of her old wool sweaters to repurpose and upcycle. Lucky for me my mum loves to wear bright colors. So I ended up with a bag of sweaters in lovely pinks, reds, and purples.I had recently made a very popular no-sew denim rug out of waistbands (click here), so this time I thought I'd have a go at a no sew sweater rug.
Spring has been a long time coming this year. Yesterday was -10 degrees Celsius, today it is +17 degrees! That's mother nature for ya. But enough already!. I love my patio furniture set and I have had it for many years. It is still in great condition but really doesn't suit my personality. I seen these patio cushions last year and fell in love with all the bright colors but it wasn't in my budget. This year browsing my Canadian Tire store there were the cushions that I fell in love with last year and they were on clearance. Definitely fate! I took this as a sign I was meant to have them. So began my makeover.

We recently installed a couple of Ring Outdoor Security Cameras at Steph's house as part of our participation in The Home Depot's smart home campaign.These cameras are battery operated, meaning we could install them away from a power source. This gave us a lot more flexibility in their placement.We decided to put them where they could "see" Steph's house rather than "see" out away from it.Take a look at what we did, and how we gave them a bit of camouflage in the form of a birdhouse "slipcover."

The Holiday decorating season is approaching rapidly and here at Gilbert Marketplace, we are so excited! Today I'll be using some scrap wood I have around to make these beautiful snowmen.

We had this room off of our garage that didn't have the best of access. This was an ideal spot for an entertainment type room (man cave if you asked my husband) but before we could consider that, we needed to give it easier access from the house. The good news is that this room had a couple of windows and one of those windows would make the perfect spot for a door. Job half done, right? Click here to see this and similar DIY tutorials. To convert this window into an exterior door, here are the steps we took. If this isn't something you are comfortable with, always seek the advice of a professional.
I have always wanted an old antique bedroom set and stay on the lookout for one that is affordable. My limit was $250 and I had been keeping my eye out on local swap shop sites and Craigslist. Low and behold I found the bed and a dresser for $200. The ads pictures looked like it was in decent shape and stated that it really did not need a lot of work just a few minor things. Not! When I went to pick it up my husband was a flat out “No”, this is just junk, it would require way to much money, time, and work to bring it back to original. I refused to leave it, I paid the lady as my husband turned red and looked about ready to leave me there with the bedset. We started loading and as we did pieces began to crack and break and I cringed inside hoping it wasn’t a wasted $200. I got it home and accessed the damage. I had to do a lot of reinforcements on the headboard because of its height. There was a lot of detail that had to be replicated with wood filler and trim. The footboard was cracked and the marble tops to the dresser were cracked. I started pricing what it was going to be to bring this back to original and decided that it was just not doable. I pondered on leaving it in storage until I had the time and money. I had come up with something else. My home is very rustic/Farmhouse so painting it would work. I know a lot of people cringe when they see old pieces painted but sometimes that is the only solution. So I began tediously repairing the bed and replacing the marble tops on the dresser with wood.
I have eczema on my hand, and most bulk soaps in stores make it worse. I have to take my own soap with me when I go to the store. Rather than dealing with a liquid that can spill or a bar soap that can get messy, I make single use soaps. Since it's fall, I decided to use silk fall leaves to make soaps.
Steph has a tub that she only uses for storage, never bathing! It's a great place for storing bathroom essentials, but it's an eyesore.She came up with an idea to hide the storage without damaging the tub or limiting it's intended use.Head to 3:33 in the above video to see the Fast DIY project.
