In this post I will show you how to get a vintage finish on painted furniture. There are several applications that you could use to achieve an antique look, however there is one that i find to be the easiest.
I make lots of DIY signs for my home. But when you are squeezed for wall space, it's really nice if those signs can actually DO something other than just look pretty, am I right?In some cases, I'll create signs on top of bulletin boards because that's useful! Or add hooks to hang things.But this round, I wanted to create a way to hide some woodworking tools in the kitchen behind some art...Here's the pretty fix, that's MUCH more productive!
The rattan furniture trend is out in full force and I am 100% on board with it. Rattan chairs, headboards, and bags, I’ll take one of each please! One of my favorite designs is the rattan mirror, so I decided to recreate the style with materials that I already had on hand. Instead of using actual rattan, I used macrame cord and mimicked the style, and I love it!Watch the video above to see how you can easily make your own, or keep reading for step by step instructions. Enjoy!
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
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’m so in love with my new seating area on my patio. In fact, I’m sitting out here now, enjoying the shade from my giant maple tree and listening to the birds singing all around me. My neighbors on the other side of my fence have a cedar privacy hedge and the birds just love to sit in the cedars and sing their little hearts out.I wanted to share a simple little craft that I just made for out here on my patio and what better place to write about it than on the patio, looking at the crafts I made!
Can I tell y’all how much I love to create cutesy crafts? These super sweet and kinda sassy Patriotic Clay Pot Love Bugs went together in just about 30 minutes with simple supplies from Dollar Tree (and my craft stash)! Get the kiddos involved and then have some family fun time, being creative.
Find the easy steps to make a sugar scrub that’s fragrant and pretty too. Ready to gift or use in just five minutes!
UPGRADE YOUR OLD AND THRIFTED VASES TO AN EARTHY BOHO LOOK Got old, dated, or ugly vases? I have a solution for you!

I realized the other day when organizing my holiday decor, that I only had a sad little box of patriotic decorations. I decided that I needed to add some more red, white & blue decor. Here I will show you how I turned a pair of American Flag Swim Trunks into an easy DIY USA sign.
I’m so excited as I write this, I have asked my hubby for years to help me make one of these. I’ve saved windows I’ve picked from the side of the road. Some of these I’ve had 10 years. I promise I’m not a hoarder, Okay I might be of old chippy items! But can you blame me? Don’t really answer that!
I recently acquired an end table from my mother-in-law's home. It was from my husband's father's mother. The end table was in the garage collecting dust for years since she passed in the early 2000s. It was unique in style and had many decorative accents that I thought would be a great DIY chalk paint project I could try with Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue chalk paint. Check out how I updated this old and not loved piece.
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:)
I have been seeing those pretty wood beaded mirrors all over and loving them.Being Mrs. Frugal I decided to take a round mirror that I’ve had for a couple of years and these wood bead halves and simply make my own! I can't get over how simple this project was to do and how effective it is.Take a look at how I did this so easily. I'd love to know if you give this a try too!
(This post was written in collaboration with H Potter but all thoughts and opinions are my own.) Are you looking for planting ideas for a window box? Wait until you see how to plant flowers in these GORGEOUS window boxes.When I first saw these stainless steel window boxes with an antique copper finish, it was love at first sight.I mean…wow!And I have to tell you, they are even more beautiful in person than they are online.About H PotterH Potter sells absolutely gorgeous garden decor and accessories. I’ve received a few items from them, and these copper window boxes might be my favorite because they added lots of character to my garden shed.H Potter is a family-owned business that has been accenting homes and gardens nationwide for over 20 years with distinctive items that can be used indoors and out.Their product line includes terrariums, lanterns, trellises, window boxes, planters, and torches, handmade by artisans using high-quality materials from stainless steel to copper to hand-blown glass.And let me tell you, from my experience, they are built to last and are just gorgeous!
I was asked by a friend if I could give a small vanity she was given a makeover. It was not in the best of shape and was missing the mirror and a knob for one of the drawers.I knew I had some chalk paint in my workshop that would be suitable for this vanity. She did not want anything fancy, so this project is not as unique as other projects you will find on my website. My idea was to paint the vanity using chalk paint and I would add some wallpaper to the drawers as a feature.
One of my very first yard projects was to create a planter bed and then my husband and I made pathway adjacent to it. Our plan for the backyard was to create a deck at one end of the path. However, our plan changed and now we are breaking down the path! Of course I can't just toss the Irish Moss I had planted between pavers. I will transplant them to the front yard and show you how!
I had this armoire in my one bedroom at the cabin and the brown was not working. It had been years and I was putting it off. Call it lazy, or just not inspired, but either way I didn't want to tackle it till now.I'm so glad I did!First step that everyone knows, wash it down and prepare for sanding.
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!
It's spring and I'm eager to work in my flower beds!! One of the projects on my to do list is to make a trellis for my Rose bush to climb on. Every year my Rose bush produces long runs and they always end up going behind the deck or up the foundation headed for the siding.I normally end up cutting the runs off and its a never ending cycle all summer long. So this year I will be able to use my new trellis and hopefully enjoy more blooms!This trellis also would be amazing for a veggie garden as well!
Hanging a rug as wall art is an excellent way to cover a large area of wall in your home with a new texture, I love that instead of another hard surface on the wall like framed art it can add some softness to the walls & sometimes in a less expensive way if you aren’t hanging anything precious. I recently found this rug for $5 (at 5 below) & knew I had the perfect place for it…and you can probably already tell it wasn’t going on the ground! I put a plan together to hang this rug as wall art & it worked out so perfectly that I had to share it with y’all because I just love sharing a good DIY ( you can see them all here).
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.
The weather is starting to get so pretty here in Alabama & that means I do absolutely everything possible outside.Last year I transformed our patio into an oasis, perfect for dinning & entertaining.The only thing missing was the soft glow of candlelight.And outdoor candles look extra glamorous in lanterns.
