I turned my rusty old patio table into a piece of colorful art I can enjoy with my morning coffee. My beloved old table was damaged by the wind, salt and moisture of the sea near my Jaffa home, and as if that wasn't enough, it got a lot of wear from my roommates as well… it was time to make it chic again!
This pallet wood pumpkin project was so easy to do from start to finish. It started with the last pallet wood I had disassembled last year. Then I scavenged from the kids craft paint stash. Some dry brushing the paint on and swiping it off and it was done in time for the little trick or treatsters.
With the holidays coming up, it's time to start thinking about your Christmas tree! We love to get a real tree each year, and we hate to just throw it away after the holidays are over. So, we came up with an easy way to hold on to our memories from that year - making our Christmas tree trunk into beautiful coasters!Let's get started!
My patio furniture started to look a little weathered after last summer. I wanted to do something different, but didn't want to spend money purchasing new furniture. I saw some adorable turquoise chairs at Target and decided I could just spray paint the patio furniture I already had.
Wrought iron patio furniture has a timeless style.... IF you maintain its finish. The good news is that it is super easy and inexpensive to refinish your wrought iron! And if you are like me, refinishing is the perfect opportunity to add bright color to your backyard!
Have you heard of paint pouring? I think it's a new trend that's happening right now! But I'm going one step further to pour using a sink strainer! Who knew a strainer could create amazing art? And without ever touching a paint brush, too? This is so me!
With three kids of different ages, the toys in my house are multiplying fast. Because of this, I’m always on the look out for practical toy storage ideas (see here for IKEA toy storage hacks).I decided to tackle the soft toys mess in my daughters bedroom first.

This is not your typical pumpkin! Why do pumpkins need to be orange? Well in my house they don't, I wanted something that matched my farmhouse style so I designed these easy pumpkins that are rustic but elegant. So lets not waste time its October already, but these are fast and you can use them until Thanksgiving.
This couch was on its way to the tip. I asked the owner if I could take it and she was happy for it to be gone. Because it was free I thought it would be a good project for me to try and see if I could restore it and at the same time see how they are put together. I had never done a couch before so this was my test run.
