I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to participate in the latest Blogger Challenge! For our fall challenge, we used glass apothecary jars and crafted or styled them any way we chose to reflect the fall theme. I went straight for the paint - and something a little unexpected - to create these textured old world style canisters, that I absolutely love!
Around this time of year, it's become a tradition to come up with an alternative Christmas tree idea. This year is no exception!The inspiration for this year's tree is from a visit to Epcot at Walt Disney World. Steph took the boat ride in the Land Pavilion and saw their version of a ladder tree, which became the model for ours. Take a look at how it came together!
A few years ago a bought a real fixer. Over the years I totally gutted it and opened up the living room,dining room and kitchen. It was nice but opening up the space left the 8 ft ceiling looking boring. Structurally I couldn’t raise the ceiling. But I still wanted to add some interest to the ceiling and better define the spaces.
I love the look of lanterns in outdoor decorating, but the cost to buy them can get quite pricey, and most do not come with lights and I of course wanted both. I decided to make my own, lights and all. The cost , $12.00 to make two lanterns I can use year round in my outdoor decor!

My home was built in 1978 and we have been doing some updating. I had very cheap walnut stained door trim and my windows only had sills. The baseboards were all walnut stained too. All the flooring is now either tile or laminate wood. Goodbye lime green/rust carpet and harvest gold lino! When we added new trim we did not have a lot of money to spend on molding so we used 1 x 4 pine lumber.
I love all things Craftsman Style, so I built my own Window Trim for our basement! It's hard but if I can do this, anyone can!
I live in a small 2 bedroom home and with that being said I took the smaller bedroom and made a walk in closet so I always needed somewhere for my grand- Munchkins to sleep when they come over. .. and I always wanted a Country Cottage!
Got any pickle jars lying around? Don't toss them before you see these great DIY's!To begin, take off the label by soaking the pickle jar in a sink full of warm water & add 1 cup of vinegar. After the labels are off wash with dish soap to make sure the jar is clean.
Hey Renters! Or homeowners who change their minds a lot (shout out). Or remodelers on a budget. You’ve seen gorgeous photos of beautiful bathroom mirrors with fancy frames, right? And you want one, right? But you can’t afford to take down that builder-grade mirror and replace it with one that costs more than a year’s worth of electric bills? I feel you. My bathroom has a giant, cheap-o, plain jane mirror just stuck on the wall like the builder spent his last dollar of the budget at McDonalds on a big mac.
Have on old chair you don't want anymore? Before tossing it out you might want to consider repurposing it into a shelf! A ladder back chair makes for a perfect towel holder, while the seat works as a great storage space! This chair turned shelf works great in a bathroom or kitchen and can be made with a few quick steps! By simply cutting the chair a bit and adding some hanging hooks, you can create a fun and unique shelf!We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

I had the hardest time this year deciding on Christmas gifts to give my grandparents and my boss this last year. They all like when I make them something, but I didn’t know what in the world they would like me to make and didn’t want to fill their homes with useless junk they feel obligated to keep because I made it for them. Been there, done that before. You guys do not want to see what I gave people a few years ago for Christmas. SO embarrassing. It was in my early DIY years….
So, anyway, last minute (like seriously three days before Christmas), I decided to make them wooden lanterns.
I spent almost my entire Christmas break (every spare moment I had) in the shop whipping these up. It was a fun (yet time consuming) project (because you have to let all the wood glue dry after every step). ...
