The only one that is attached is the bottom one, and that is to the bun feet. This way I can use all three for storage.

In my quest to make my garden pretty this year, I have a bunch of fun projects I want to complete. I am taking you all with me on my garden decorating journey! I made the Garden Stepping Stones, and the Garden Flower Stake. They came out so cute! Today we are going to make a super cute clay pot garden gnome.Follow along and make one for your yard too!
Couldn’t resist making one more fun piece for my garden before getting on to things I should probably really be doing. 🙂I’d like to attract more birds, and thought a small feeder in the garden would help.An old metal chicken feeder has been hanging in my garage for several years now, so why not put it to use.
I found a vintage suitcase at a garage sale and loved the character it had, but on it's own it had no functionality. In order to make the suitcase into something more practical, I used the legs off of a broken mid century table, and attached them to the suitcase to make a side table. It is the perfect piece to use as my new nightstand, and it only took an hour! Be sure to check out the blog post for more details on how to make your own suitcase side table and a complete budget breakdown!
I have seen a few vintage suitcase projects on Pinterest, and was always envious because I could never find one in our small town. When my daughter moved into her new house I saw this one in the garage ready to go into the bin. My crafty little heart went into over drive thinking what I was going to make with it. This suitcase table was the result.
I have an obsession with anything antique and sometimes get carried away when acquiring one particular item. A few years ago that item was suitcases, I couldn't get enough of old suitcases. Well, the obsession is over and now I'm left with a lot of suitcases.
I was given an old warped tea cart that was in many pieces. The large wheels and push handle were not on it anymore and the sides and top were warped from being left out in the weather. The rest of the cart was in great condition and I just couldn’t let it go to the dump.
I was given this hall table/sofa table quite some time ago. It was plain, made up of mostly MDF, and it just wasn't speaking to me. After scrolling through one of my many furniture groups, I was inspired! I saw this gorgeous vanity where the artist applied appliques going partially up the legs. I wanted to play off of that! Make it look as tho vines and flowers were growing up the piece.This is how I turned an entryway table into a one of a kind work of art ❤️I completely forgot to take a before photo, but Pinterest came to my rescue! The pictured unfinished piece is almost exactly what mine looked like before I got my hands on it 😉
Do you have limited space in a room or just like a more minimal look? In my tiny living room, I found that we just didn't have the extra space for end tables. To remedy the space issue without sacrificing convenience I opted for C tables. Built on wheels, these tables can nest against the ends of your couch, follow you to your favorite place to cozy up or even double as a work surface to hold your laptop.
I can get these cable spools for free from our utility company and every time I saw one of them, I just knew I could make something cool out of it. I just wasn't sure what that would be. So I loaded a couple of them into my truck, stored them in the backyard and waited for the creative juices to start flowing! My husband and I are converting some spare space in our home to a wine room and we needed a small table to hold a glass of wine or two and maybe some appetizers. I didn't have a lot of space, so it had to be on the smaller side. Enter the cable spool.
‘Could’ what, you ask? Could become a much better version of himself 😊 Meet Percival. He was a very old, tired, plain and inexpensive side table, who’s inner self screamed vibrant and sassy! My neighbor, and good friend, had him between two chairs on her little cute screened in porch where she would sit and reflect, and Percival would have the honor of holding her coffee. I had recently refinished an old cabinet that belonged to her(it was from her grandmother) and she wanted a small project to give it a try herself. So, she brought it to my work shop (aka basement lol). I told her I would walk her through the steps to make him wonderful, but that “she” would need to do the work. We disassembled, cleaned, and sanded him and she got one coat of paint on the top section, and there he sat………….for 6 months…. See, she had gotten engaged and was planning her wedding and had no time for herself…So apparently, I had lied. About the part that “she would need to do the work”… I couldn’t help myself. Every time I went to start another project, Percival would throw up his little hands and say "choose me, choose me... !" and I'd say , sorry bud, you are gonna have to talk to your mom about that and he give me that little pout.I just could not look at that sad face any longer. He's so proud of himself right now... Percy, get that smirk off your face!
They must have been MASSIVELY mass produced. These lovely cut glass luncheon plates with matching cups were, at one time, the standard for serving “a light lunch” at baby showers, wedding showers, church meetings, bridge clubs and other hosted “Ladies who Lunch” events.
I love to transform unwanted and damaged items of a vintage nature by breathing new life into them and when I saw this piece of slate on a string in local charity shop thought it would be a great item to be decorated and be durable for the garden .
Come on over and learn how to make these DIY Shabby Chic Frames. Use dollar store frames to make these beautiful floral frames!Hi there!

Hey there! I’m not sure if any of you also suffer with terribly sensitive skin, but this is one of the cleaning product hacks I have found that tremendously help my sensitive skin! Home made laundry detergent, and a fairly natural one at that! I love this detergent! I’ve been using it for almost a year! I work out daily, my husband works on Diesel engines, and we have a six year old, and dogs... stains, smells, and grime run deep in our laundry, and this detergent tackles it all! 3 simple, easy to find ingredients and some optional essential oils, and you have a powerful, natural, cleaner that can tackle the biggest messes and smells! I’ll also throw in a few other natural cleaning extras along the way!
I am so excited to share these DIY hexagon shelves that I’ve been in love with & have seen all over the internet but anything I could buy wasn’t deep enough for me. I wanted to be able to stick 6″ pots into each nook, so I came up with the idea of these oversized hexagon shelves so I’d have an excuse to buy more plants! LOL
Is spring cleaning and organization still happening? I was super happy to get this cabinet organized. I started realizing that with cabinets, items get tossed to the back and are never seen..which means never used and it's hard to know what you really have. The solution was to create pull-out drawers so every item in the cabinet was accounted for.To see how these hold up, or for other DIY ideas, make sure to check out my Instagram.
In this post I will show you how to get a vintage finish on painted furniture. There are several applications that you could use to achieve an antique look, however there is one that i find to be the easiest.
Guys, since forever I’ve wanted a potting bench! Some girls want diamonds… fancy clothing but not I (truthfully I won’t turn my nose up at that stuff – HA)! But, seriously I love to putter and create so much, give me some vintage misfits and a few tools and I’m very happy creating all the things! Like this potting bench, I simply LOVE the way it’s turned out – some (I won’t name names) thought I had lost my mind – and maybe I have a bit… haha! But – now it’s his favourite thing on the porch! Ain’t that the way?
I love a good refresh and I love it even more when I can pull off a quick inexpensive project. I gave my front porch a whole new look using paint! Paint is one of the cheapest, easiest, most impactful ways to change your home.
Raised garden beds seem to be the in thing in gardening these days and there are lots of options out there to purchase but they are pricey . A 4x4 bed averages around $50, and let's face it that's not alot of space for a garden. My mom wanted to expand her raised bed this year and after searching for decent size ones and not finding any reasonably priced I decided to make my own. I remembered seeing roofing panels a lifetime ago when you could actually go into a store... Still not open here in Ontario Canada. Anyhow at the time I thought that would make an awesome raised bed. So I did some online shopping/ curbside pickup and got me a some roofing panels.
Roses are one of my favorite flowers.They are absolutely beautiful and smell heavenly.In my humble opinion, one can never have too many roses.I found these beauties at the grocery store, of all places.Blush pink, butter yellow and a loverly rose pink (of course) – la vie en rose.Swooooooon.
Since buying my home, I have always wanted a workshop/craft space. Nothing extravagant, just somewhere that I can piddle and work on projects in my spare time. Ideally I would have loved to construct a garage, but the cost to construct a garage on our property just wasn’t worth it in the long-run. That being the case, I knew that I was going to have to get creative if I wanted to construct/have a workshop/crafting space. One early Saturday morning while everyone else was still asleep, as I stared out the window watching the birds and sipping on my coffee (sounds relaxing, right?! My favorite kind of mornings!) I suddenly had the idea to turn my 8x8 shed into a me-space”…no a “she-space”….oooh…no no… A “SHED SHED/CRAFT SHACK”!!! I purchased this shed a few months prior to this day from my local community college. I got an absolute deal on this shed and was ecstatic that I would be able to get even more use than I anticipated out of it! My absolute first step was to get rid of some of the shelves and items that I had stored in the shed. This is just the first step in my She Shed conversion, but here is how I did it!
I had this armoire in my one bedroom at the cabin and the brown was not working. It had been years and I was putting it off. Call it lazy, or just not inspired, but either way I didn't want to tackle it till now.I'm so glad I did!First step that everyone knows, wash it down and prepare for sanding.
Loss is hard. Finding ways to honor your lost loved ones is something that is important to a lot of people.For myself, it was the loss of a child. As I am approaching her 8th heavenly birthday, I wanted to make something special to plant some flowers for her. This project was simple yet meaningful for me.I also think this would make a good gift idea for someone.Here I will show you how I transformed an old planter pot into a remembrance planter using the tissue transfer technique.
