This project is meant to be a tutorial for making your own art supplies at a minimal cost. And so we begin by making Mom Podge (I'm coining that phrase, as I've never seen it before). Mom Podge is very versatile and is generally used as a media for decoupage, and/or gluing a paper product to some other product, such as glass, porcelain, baskets, metal, etc.
We all have blank walls that could use a little wall art. Unfortunately we are not all artists so today we're going to show you how to easily paint your own canvas wall art using a .
I love the holidays as well as the scents of the holidays. I also love to make up little inexpensive gifts to give to my family and friends. I've got an awesome little yummy smelling project that fits both of these categories and I'm going to tell you how I did it so you'll be able to make some and give as gifts too.
We just moved into our home a few months ago and it definitely needed some updating. We decided to start in the kitchen with new appliances. Black stainless beauties 😍 That's when we really noticed how "80's" our kitchen cabinets were! They were in good shape, just wrong color. So we decided to just paint them! The hinges were terribly dirty with a film over them and brass colored. So here's a step by step how I quickly cleaned them and then painted them to match the black stainless appliances....
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.

You can paint almost anything with this wonder paint, and the best part there is no sanding or stripping involved. For my latest project, I was lucky enough to partner with the folks over at Annie Sloan Unfolded to makeover an amazing antique settee with my favorite paint.
So I had these creamy off white chairs in our Living Room. The Chairs were about 23 years old. We sat in our Living Room on the big Holidays when guest were over. So the chairs were in great shape, as they were hardly ever used. Other then a couple of stains on the arm rest and one chair cushion. I figured what did I have to lose?? I did not like the color of them anyway.

I confess I am a textile addict. Last year I found myself toting a crappy old sheet to the beach or to the park and this year I decided to do something about it! I had seen a couple of pictures floating around online of ice dyed pieces and thought it would give a nice finish to some linen fabric to make a light and easy carry-along blanket or throw. The ice and the dye really do all the crazy work for this easy and addictive dye technique.
We just finished this build where we started with a basic Ana White bench plan and modified it for our needs. I (Steph) have been wanting to build a privacy screen for some time to cover the patch of my yard that I can see into my neighbors backyard. We finally made it happen and even better we made it into a bench so it has multiple functions!
