Needed a headboard for a Queen bed. Wanted to try and build one myself and use some staining/waxing techniques I’ve seen on Hometalk and other internet sites. I had some Headboard cushions that I came across at Aldi’s, that was the inspiration for the idea.
My husband and I used to go camping all the time. But nowadays it just seems like way too much work. But I really do miss the smell of the forest and watching the campfire burn low as the sky gets dark. So, instead of spending too much time in longing, I’ve decided to pay homage to the campfire with these Woodsy Scented Campfire Candles, with real wood wicks.Read the full article and why soy wax and wood wicks are a healthier option. http://www.thehiphomestead.com/how-to-make-enamel-mug-soy-wax-candles/
Happy Fall! Hope you are having some beautiful Fall weather where you are. If you saw my previous posts, you’ll know I have been working on a mini-makeover of my living room. I added weathered white wall planks to the feature wall and created a rustic “home” sign to hang up. I have also completed a few other projects for that room, but those will be shared in future posts. But today, I’m sharing the new DIY Rustic Media Center / TV Stand that I built for that room. I had seen a rustic TV stand at Pottery Barn that I loved, but I didn’t love the price and I needed more open spaces than what their console provided. So, I used the Pottery Barn console as inspiration for the one I designed and built, but created this one to fit my needs.
If you are anything like me, your family goes through lots of jeans. We love wearing our jeans and then when they are worn out or no longer fitting us we need new ones. But I didn't want to just toss out those worn out jeans, it was time to upcycle them into something awesome.
I’m a really big fan of rescuing objects, because I don’t believe in throwing things away that still have use in them. Sometimes though you get something and think, “that’s the end of this”, like this rusty pan. But then I found this great tip to remove rust from metal using coke and tinfoil.
As we are re-siding our house from a pale yellow vinyl siding to a new "greige" (gray with brown tint) something had to be done to update or hide the utility meter.Repurposing old vinyl shutters, the eyesore actually became a deck focal point.All I had to buy was paint and hardware!

Make a pumpkin topiary with matching embroidery hoop pumpkins for your fall decor! These are easy to make using an old sweater and some dollar store pumpkins. This is a quick upcycle project that only takes a few supplies.
I love Halloween! Not the scary haunted houses or movies, because I'm a big chicken with a huge imagination- which is not a good combo. But the dressing up, fun parties, decorations and of course the candy!! And since we don't want to scare the children around here ;) I stick to more fun decorations at our house for Halloween. So this year I made these cute and easy mummy mason jar guys to decorate our foyer table with. They are adorable, and so easy to make it's scary!!
Hi there! Dark florals are super trendy and look amazing in a bedroom or on a back splash in a kitchen. This DIY stencil project is simple but elegant and the finished accent wall looks like a professional did it. Let’s get stenciling!
There are so many drains in our homes and from time to time they get clogged. We've all been there. I wanted to share some ways to unclog drains with natural products and without using a plunger. You can see more of my crazy creations here*Everyone's got different kinds of pipes, home temperatures, etc. Please know what you are working with so you know what your limits are with your toilets, sinks, pipes, etc.
I found this gem on the side of the road. Yes it wasn’t pretty but definitely had potential. It was missing a side rail. Easy fix right? And of course I can just take my sawz-all to the ratten seat and replace it. I loaded it up and left it for a couple of months. It has been rained on numerous times. I even thought about throwing it away a couple of times. FINALLY I got off my rear and went to town on it. I cleaned it up with some vinegar and wiped it down really good. I left it to dry a few hours and took my hand sander and used 120 grit to sand off the rough spots and help paint adhere to it. It was black and I thought I probably need to use primer. I didn’t though. After sanding I measured where the side bar was gone and replaced it. You can see it in the photo below. All is used was my jig saw to cut the piece and a few wood screws to make it stay in place.
