We have a pretty big counter area and lots of cabinets. The lighting has always been difficult. We have thought about under cabinet lighting, but I thought the cords would drive me nuts! I like organized mess.Then one night the solution came to me... white duct tape to hide the cords. Tape them to the white bottoms of cabinets.ordered under cabinet lights from Amazon (a coupon blog I follow showed some on sale at a great price)...
I purchased this antique dresser from a friend who lives down the street from me. Isn’t she a beauty? The mirror was in excellent shape, no scratches or anything, which is very rare.
If you were one of the 15 million that viewed our video on how to make a concrete pumpkin two years ago, you probably have your own pumpkin that is in need of a little attention.We have several concrete pumpkins which we have left in the Florida elements for two years. They were in need of cleaning and new paint.Instead of just painting them, we decided to give our 'happy' pumpkins a little 'creepy' makeover with a little more concrete and paint. You'll find the tutorial in our Workshop Wednesday show above.You can watch the entire thing, but you can also fast forward to 3:35 to watch just the tutorial.
I’m a fish guy. My wife thinks it’s weird and when I say it like that, I have to admit that it does sound a bit odd! For the last 15 years, I’ve wanted to have a koi pond in my yard, but haven’t been able to because we were renters for the first 10 years of our marriage - and most people frown on digging a big hole in their yard and filling it with water. 5 years ago we bought our first house with plenty of property, BUT there wasn’t a place to put a pond where it could be enjoyed. Luckily that all changed as we removed the decks that came with the house and opted for a smaller cement patio. Now was my time to draw up my plans for a koi pond. I marked out an area and convinced my wife that it would be a centerpiece (that isn’t anywhere near the center)…and she approved! After getting the concrete patio poured, I didn’t waste any time digging into the pond project - literally.
Your guests will think you spent thousands on this wall treatment. And that would be perfectly fine with me. :)

I love upcycling my old jeans and use them to make, pillows, quilts, wall organizers and even upholster chairs.
I often end up with lots of small scrap pieces of denim from these projects. Instead of throwing away these scraps, I used them to make some cute padded denim hearts.
These hearts look great hung up in a garland but also make a really sweet key chain/ring that would make a lovely little Valentine's gift.
Update: My teen was scrolling through my pics and came across these and she exclaimed, ”What is that!” I replied that it was marble painting. She excitedly said, “I want to marble paint!!!!” And there you have it, this is the ultimate teen craft. You‘re welcome! 😉 A year ago, I used one of these glass votive holders for a glass bead project and it turned out to be one of my favorite projects ever. Lately, I have been feeling like I have been having a creative block in organizing and decorating in general. When this happens to me, I find that the best way to overcome this is to perform some “creative“ exercises. Very similar to when singers and actors perform exercises before performing. To many people it may seem silly but to me, it can just open my mind to think differently. Since these glass votives are less than a dollar, they are perfect to perform one of these creative exercises on.
WHEN it comes to adding details to a living room or bedroom setting, you want to make sure that you are not only decorating, but you are also making a statement. If you have a bright and minimal room that is missing that pop of color, this easy DIY pom-pom accent pillow will help bring some more flare to your space and show off your fun side.Plug in your glue gun and let it heat. Begin by lining up the fabric to one side of the pillow and hot glue each corner to the pillow. Follow along with the rest of the edges so the fabric is fully aligned with the pillow, and ensure that all edges are glued on. Let cool.
