Nest for All Seasons on Oct 11, 2013very cool!
So, I had a pair of nightstands that were destined for the dump. I kept them around for several years with the intention of throwing them out but for some reason I just couldn't part with them. I finally made the decision to give them a second chance!
I love to upcycle and reuse old maps, they are very affordable craft paper. There are so many fun things you can do with them. One of the most popular things I've made with them is beautiful roses (see here).This time I've used my old maps to create some beautiful moths for fun faux taxidermy wall art. You can give these as a gift if you use a map of somewhere special.

I recently gave our very vanilla military housing powder bath a makeover with "washi tape wallpaper." We moved into our temporary military housing about 2 months ago and began setting up house but we are desperate for color and character in our very neutral home. We will only be residing in our home for 6 months so anything we use to decorate must be very removable! I have been on the lookout for temporary wallpaper and there are some great options out there- but at $60 for 2 square feet I'm just not willing to commit to the price for a six month stay. So, in the end I decided to make my own wall treatment with washi tape.
I am so excited to share these DIY hexagon shelves that I’ve been in love with & have seen all over the internet but anything I could buy wasn’t deep enough for me. I wanted to be able to stick 6″ pots into each nook, so I came up with the idea of these oversized hexagon shelves so I’d have an excuse to buy more plants! LOL

They must have been MASSIVELY mass produced. These lovely cut glass luncheon plates with matching cups were, at one time, the standard for serving “a light lunch” at baby showers, wedding showers, church meetings, bridge clubs and other hosted “Ladies who Lunch” events.
Today I’m sharing how to make a plate wreath. Before I begin getting into the details I’m going to share how this project began. As a rule, I make an effort to use pieces in our home that are sentimental. Because I have a collection of antique tea cups from my grandmothers. I am deciding how to display them in our home. I’m currently in the beginning phase of deciding the best way to display these. After thinking for a bit using the saucers came to mind and that’s how to make a plate wreath began.Of course I didn’t want to damage or harm these specials pieces. My grandmothers found these pieces out antiquing on weekends. Also a few of these are from my mom’s own collection. You can imagine these pieces are especially important to me mostly the pieces from my mom. My mom and I were extremely close. Anyway I can keep a piece of her around me I work to make it happen. So I came up with the idea of of sharing how to make a plate wreath. Because I do want to be careful with these special pieces this took some planning and thought.How To Make A Plate WreathFirst of all, a wreath form is needed. I did have to take a look around for the best one. Luckily, I did stumble upon a 16″ gold mesh hoop wreath at Michael’s. Because of the mesh I knew this would give me stability to make a plate wreath. After getting this home I did decide to spray paint both sides with Rust Oleum Chalked Paint in Linen White. Let dry.
I have no idea what made me decide to make a wreath with a tail, or shaped this way, but I just didn’t want to do the same old thing. I kind of think this wreath was a cross between a wreath and a swag.I would love to have you stop by my blog , Celebrate & Decorate for more details as well as sign up for my latest creations, posts, recipes, exclusives, and more...
Have you struggled with how to clean your patio cushions? I have got you covered.Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner.That means lots and lots of time on the outdoor patio.Who wants to sit on a dirty, mildewed patio cushion?Not me!And, I don’t want to buy new cushions either.We have had our outdoor patio furniture for 4 years. I love our patio set. However, it is constantly covered in dirt and grime because we live in a constant construction zone.One day, in the near future, there will be an end to this construction. But, I will not be buying new patio furniture.And, right now, on the weekends when the construction equipment is parked, we still love to sit on the patio - in spite of the filth.But, I still don’t want to sit in the filth.Here is the method I have found to clean my cushions that I have found to work fabulously! Even on white cushions. My method will also get rid of any pollen and mildew. And, it will help delay mildew build up if your cushions sit directly out in the elements. The best part - I am betting you already have most of the supplies needed on hand.Supplies5 gallon bucket1/2 cup granular Tide1/2 cup BoraxWater1/2 cup vinegarLint free rag or clothwater hose with jet spray nozzleDirectionsPlace the Tide, Borax, and vinegar in the 5 gallon bucket.Add the vinegar.Using your water hose, gently fill the bucket with water. (You do not have to be exact).The mixture will foam up so don’t turn the water on full blast.Using a lint free rag, sponge the mixture onto your cushions and pillows liberally.Use a scrub brush to work on any stains.After generously soaking the entire cushion, place them in the sun for 15 minutes.After the first 15 minutes, flip them and repeat the process for another 15 minutes.Next, turn your hose sprayer to jet and spray the cushions with water until no suds run out.Flip the cushions on their side, zipper side down and allow the cushions to dry completely. It should not take more than an hour or two for them to dry on a sunny day.You are now ready to enjoy your just like new patio cushions the entire season.
This Dollar Tree Patriotic Straw Vase is one of the easiest DIY’s EVER. Last year I made this patriotic wreath (which was also super easy) using Dollar Tree paper straws and this year I decided to try decorating a Dollar Tree vase using the same straws.
I've never been brave enough to repaint my kitchen cabinets (they're dark but only a few years old). However, an opportunity recently presented itself when I inherited some free cabinets from a neighbor.The plastic laminate was peeling in places but the cabinets themselves were in excellent shape. They'd be great for storing power tools and project supplies in the garage. Plus, did I mention they were free?Here's how they looked on the listing...

Happy May friends! I say this VERY tentatively but I think Spring might just be here – like all the way here, finally!!! Our cozy living series is back for another month with some springspiration for you. I truly hope that Spring has sprung where you are too?
I love to transform unwanted and damaged items of a vintage nature by breathing new life into them and when I saw this piece of slate on a string in local charity shop thought it would be a great item to be decorated and be durable for the garden .
I always HATED my kitchen cabinets. First, they were 42" high, and I am short. My bottom cabinets were full. But I could reach and use only 2 shelves in the upper cabinets. The other 2 shelves in each wall cabinet were empty. Second, the wall cabinets were narrow, 11 inches deep. My dinner plates would not fit. My plate racks would not fit either. My storage containers and jars would not fit. Why did I need the wall cabinets?
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.
This post just a follow up on our office place. The built in finished completely (finally handles came in) Beautiful so it did worth the wait (black walnut and gold). As I mentioned in my earlier post we had a nook which probably meant for a built in but it was too small to execute it. So after much consideration I just wanted a built in bench with additional storage and pillows. Easy enough and not to blow the budget( purchased wood before the lumber price increase) Kept the same paint color as the built in same top as the desk (white oak) and after getting prices on a custom made bench cushion decided to make it by myself.Anyway,here are some pictures.P.S I wanted shiplap to the beck of the wall but it wasn't in the budget and might do it down the road or not:)
So if you have solar lights, then no doubt at some point and time they developed that white hazy film over the panel. I have tried several hacks, the toothpaste, WD40, vinegar, nail polish remover...you get my drift. Some worked temporarily, others not at all. I finally found a product that works with little effort.
This project was so much fun to make! I love anything Patriotic/Americana, and what is more Patriotic than Uncle Sam?! I had some wood laying around from other projects, so I thought I would put together a Uncle Sam Porch Sitter. He turned out AMAZING!
