**Update** I had some questions regarding using this on double pane windows so after a lot of research. I went to www.buydecorativefilm.com and found a quote that said it was safe for dual paned glass. There were a lot of reviews on Amazon and I couldn't find one that said it was a problem for their double pane windows but if in doubt, contact a professional window tint installer. ** When we bought this house a year ago, it was the house of many firsts. One first, was the fact that this house had windows on the garage. We had never had a garage with windows before. And you know what they say about first impressions. Every time someone walked to our front door, they would pass these windows first. When I set up the garage, I put a shelf in front of the window, because almost most of the other wall space had pegboards already on them. I put it in front of the window and I proceeded to load it with just about every paint can that I had. Every time I walked by the garage, I groaned but was too lazy to move the shelf and ALL THOSE cans of paint. So, I sent my husband to buy blinds. Either he bought the wrong size or I measured wrong and it was probably the latter. But, I hated seeing the inside of the garage so much, I attempted to put them up anyway. I don't know why we didn't take them back and get the right size. I think I just wasn't happy with how the blinds looked so it didn't matter. I am not sure how I came across this mirror window film but it looked like it might be the perfect solution for me.
I'm pretty sure this is the easiest craft that I've ever done! If you want to make one too, the hardest part will be finding the vintage jello mold! But keep reading because I can help you out with finding one down below. I'm already keeping my eyes open for more!
I love to upcycle old stuff into new stuff and I am always looking for new techniques and tools to recycle unwanted things. So imagine how excited I was to find out that you can fuse small pieces of glass in your microwave! It's not like I really need an excuse to drink more wine but seriously wine, beer and liquor bottles do come in some pretty colors . :-)Anyway this little gadget is called the Fuseworks microwave kiln and it makes it possible to melt and fuse glass right in your kitchen! Most of my projects have been small jewelry pieces but today I have finished a much larger project.
Put an empty wall to work as a jewelry storage station! After moving to a new home with a serious lack of storage space, I came up with this solution for keeping my jewelry organized. With just a few supplies and an empty patch of wall in my closet, I created this easy DIY jewelry storage board!
I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome the dollar store is! If you know your way around the dollar store then you can create pretty much anything! You can take something so cheap looking and turn it into an amazing piece for your home. Take this jewelry stand for instance. I made this jewelry stand yesterday on beautiful, sunny afternoon. It was so nice out that I just had to be out in the sun, so I thought I would bring my project outside. This is a super easy DIY, and it cost me under $10 to make, so you can’t beat that!! Let’s dig right in and get started!

Hey there creative people! Who doesn't love a good yard sale overflowing with old useless treasures? I know I sure do! A couple of weeks ago I went to a local neighborhood yard sale where I found a wooden spice rack for a dollar. I thought to myself that I could definitely give it a new life. Normally I would paint something like this, but I wanted to do something different this time around. My creative wheels in my head started to turn and I remembered that I had a beautiful vintage themed floral fabric. I thought with some perforated lace like fabric and some cup hooks that it could become a jewelry organizer.

We’ve been talking about building a pallet tiki bar for a LONG time. We had this perfect empty spot in our back yard under a palm tree that was just screaming for a bar! My husband dubbed it the TreeKee bar instead of the Tiki Bar since we planned to use the tree as part of the actual bar. Confused? Don’t be. Keep reading to find out how we did it.Step 1 – Measure and map out the area…We played around with a layout and decided we were going to use 2 pallets in the front to make the actual bar area. Each pallet is 4 ft wide which would make it 8 ft across. We felt this would comfortably seat 4 bar stools. We knew we'd need at least 6 posts to hold up the pallets and the roof. As for the roof we planned to put one on, but the tree branches would remain on the roof as part of the ‘tiki look’.
