I added a privacy wall by framing up one side of the gazebo and adding pine tongue and groove. Not only does it create privacy but it's the perfect place for mounting a t.v. and giving the gazebo a room-like cozy feel and blocking the wind. Add a floating shelf and some plants... don't forget the fireplace and s'mores.Note: we used left over 2x4 for framing the wall (from a previous project). But, you could definitely use 2x3 which would be cheaper and yet still suitable.

Using plastic spoons for crafts is nothing new, but it's something that I hadn't done, so I thought I'd give it a try. Making flowers seemed like a good first time spoon craft for me. They are easy to put together and I've got several ideas in mind for using them in my spring time decor.
During the pandemic more and more people converted that extra bedroom to a home office. My friend was in the same boat where here extra bedroom was "featured" I bit more often on zoom calls and wanted to update her home office. The great thing about this transformation is that, when she stops using it as a home office It looks just as good as an extra bedroom
Here we go again, I am making over another thrift store find! This candle holder is one of those items I bought because it was only $1.00 and I knew someday I would do something with it! Well, someday was like YEARS later HAHA! I had kind of forgotten about it and I also wasn’t set on what I wanted to do with it, so it got pushed to the side. The other day I was organizing some of my craft stash and had it all piled and one thing sitting next to another and it all fell into place….I am not sure if that happens to you, but it does to me! All. The. Time! This came out better than anything I had envisioned for this candle holder! Come join me while for this thrifted candle holder makeover!
One of my least favorite chores has to be cleaning out the bathtub. It’s so awkward to reach into and scrub clean all of the surfaces. I’m not crazy about using smelly harsh chemicals and most natural cleaners that I had tried just didn’t cut it or required a fair amount of hard scrubbing. Well a few years ago I stumbled upon this method by doing some of my own experimenting, and I have been cleaning my bathtub this way ever since. All you need is three simple ingredients that you most likely already have at home. Read below to find out what my secret is to get the cleanest bathtub... with zero scrubbing required!

After painting the interior of my She Shed/Craft Shack it was time for me to work on the outside. When the shed initially was delivered, I had it placed at the very back of the property. Every project I would have to trudge all the way back there at least 10 times to get tools and supplies. Needless to say, that got old... QUICK. Major changes were in order for this little shed’s location and exterior! Here is how I did it for less than $200!
I finally got around to doing something about my curtains. I found these at the thrift store years ago and gave them a makeover, but was ready for a change. We moved the furniture around in my room and we now have a fireplace under the window. The fireplace will be getting a makeover soon also, so any ideas are welcome! I wanted curtains that would close over the fireplace and that’s when these DIY Romantic Ruffle Curtains were created!

On another one of my thrifting trips to Second Chance Thrift Store, which seems to be daily lately. I found this super cute little tray, it was plain and boring but I had an idea! Right before I stopped at the thrift store I was at Ocean State Job Lots (a discount store here on the East Coast) and I found these Patriotic paper placemats, it had 4 different Patriotic designs. I had never even heard of such a thing, how did I not know about paper placemats?! They are so fun and can be used for so many things! Did you know about them? I knew that I wanted to add one of these placemats to my thrifted tray! Let’s get started on this DIY thrifted flag tray!
I have the perfect way for you to use up some of your old game pieces! With just a few supplies, I made these DIY Rock Garden Markers and they turned out adorable.

You know those inspiration pictures you see and you just have to have it or build it? That was to is project for me. I’m a plant lover and I had the perfect window for several plants but no room to have them. A plant ladder to hang plants off of was the perfect solution. This inspiration picture is everything, especially the dogs!
I grabbed some extra wood that I had and everything I could think of that was red, white and blue. Let's see if we can make some cute things from all of this mess.
My sister asked if I would be able to make her a pallet daybed for her entertainment area. She wanted the daybed to be big enough for 2 people to sit comfortably on and wanted it to be sturdy. Her entertainment area is sheltered but when we get heavy rain it does get wet. That is why she chose to have the daybed made from pallets.
I’ve spotted a few articles on the internet about how to make your own reusable sponges, so I thought I’d whip up a few for myself and try them out. I’m always looking for clever eco-friendly alternatives to household cleaners and supplies. Regular kitchen sponges are made from polyurethane foam, which is harmful to the environment, and they also harbor bacteria. These reusable sponges are a healthier choice and can be tossed in the wash when dirty. I also discovered they are easy to make and work like a charm! (Affiliate links included for your convenience.

I didn’t intend to start this project. I am in the middle of so many others, but I am afflicted or gifted, depending on how you look at it, with trasho-distracto-imagination-disorder.
