I don't know about you, but I've always wanted to learn how to put together beautiful arrangements. Of course - without spending tons of money on flowers or florists. I recently took a flower arranging class and I'm sharing what I learned!
We just had to replace our glass screen door with a new sheet of plexi. Our landscaper accidentally hit it with a rock, while using the weedeater & it shattered the entire thing. Luckily my husband opened the door after it shattered, but the crash & aftermath has been quite the mess. We're still finding glass in the tracks & it's in our flower beds. But the landscaper wouldn't replace the whole door- just the glass. He was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Harvey & is just now moving back into his home. I unfortunately had to touch up the door paint, where shards of glass chipped into it.
I’ve done really good with curbing my “buy-and-hoard” tendencies at the thrift store. But when you find thrifted pathway lights like these, and then upcycle them into fall-inspired DIY lanterns, I have a renewed appreciation of my “buy-and-hoard” ways.
I bought these old path walkway lights many months ago from the thrift store.
I gasped when I found them because I knew how amazing they could be once you get past the dirt and discoloration. They turned into great upcycled Fall-inspired lanterns!...

I bought this vase on sale at Walmart for $2.29 but although I loved it shape , it really did not show when it was put into my room. It is not great for holding flowers but I wanted it. So I decided it should be stained glassed... And it was planned to all be done with Elmer's glue, a float medium and acrylic paint plus three artist paint brushes and a couple of felt pens. .. alas I needed my acrylic paint markers too!
We take a look at a wonderful DIY project by Memphis, TN Stockist, Stephanie Jones of Me & Mrs. Jones. She shares how she took a regular canvas drop cloth and gave it some stenciled style and color with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. She says: “I wanted to add a little softness, warmth & boho pizazz to a less-than-lovely window at our studio.”
