I happen to adore rustic wood! So part of my summer plans was to incorporate more rustic wood touches to warm up the outdoor spaces.One place that needed immediate attention was a little walkway that leads from the driveway to the front yard. I had thrown a few cement walking stones in place last summer, but not only did they lack personality, the area was a mess. Time for a total redo and something super creative this round!Gathering some reclaimed wood I had in my stash along with some fun garden-themed stencils, here's the delightful result!And it couldn't have been easier to do! Here's what I did:
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!
It's no secret bold metallic walls are back in style. You see it in luxury hotels, high-end offices and now in residential homes.Metallic wallpaper seems to be the biggest trend for contemporary and modern homes in 2019.But, did you know that you can get the same cosmopolitan look for a quarter of the price of wallpaper?

My very large master bedroom ceiling just seemed plain to me. Being an artist by nature, I simply saw a new "canvas" in order to add art. And how cool might it be, to wake up each morning to an awesome design looking down at me?
Hey friends! I’ve got a quick wall stencil tutorial for you today (aka, a FAUX WALLPAPER tutorial)! This is a fun project and can be done on both smooth and textured walls. I will say, if you have textured walls, your stencil will NOT be perfect, so keep that in mind. It’s just nearly impossible to get super crisp lines when there is texture, as you will inevitably have some bleed through. That said, y’all know I’m a fan of IMperfections, so no way were our textured walls getting in my way. Many stencil companies specifically advise against stenciling on textured walls because of the possibility of bleeds,so just be aware you’ll have more touch ups to take care of if your walls are textured. But don’t let that advice scare you away! I promise this wall stencil tutorial will have you convinced that stencils look great on textured walls, too (because just look at mine – LOVE)!What I love most about stenciling a wall is that it is completely customizable and far less expensive than wallpaper. You also can reuse your stencil for other projects, so you get way more bang for your buck. And of course, I'd love to see you over on my blog for more fun tutorials and some subscriber only tip sheets!
I've seen painted floors online and thought they were so creative. Why not paint- if you already hate the floor, and want to replace it someday anyway? So that's the story with this floor.
In our pool house bathroom, the floor tiles were bland and dated with dirty grout. Since I have never done this before, I wanted to experiment on a bathroom floor that wasn't a primary one - master bedroom, for example. Though a bit time consuming I am extremely happy with the results. To see more about our historic property, click here.

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!

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!

If you like organic fertilizers to make your plants even happier, check out this easy fertilizer based on yeast. Yeasts are single-celled fungi, they are everywhere in nature and can perform many ecological functions, like breaking down dead plant tissue and encouraging root growth.Yeast fertilizer can be used for indoor plants, outdoor plants and can be your best friend to grow your tomatoes this summer.Today, I will talk about how to use the yeast fertilizer for indoor plants and I will also leave some links for how to fertilize your outdoor plants and how to grow tomatoes using this technique.Bonus: Yeast is also good for compost.

Mix the yeast into all parts of the pile and make sure that the 'dry browns' in the pile are good and moist.
