332/5000Upgrade your garden by creating mosaics of old broken tiles!Our pool area needed to be fixed and connected to the patio at the house, so I used old, ugly pavers, a couple of cement blocks and some old broken tiles, and with that I created a new staircase and a pair of flower boxes.
In just one afternoon, you can build this easy and super cool pondless water fountain. What’s so interesting about this is that the basin is “invisible” so it looks like water from the fountain is just seeping into the ground. Detailed instructions can be found on my blog at http://www.prettypurpledoor.com/easy-diy-water-feature/
With the price of lumber so high I went through my scrap pile of wood so I could build our new cat his own getaway. I gathered a lot of ideas of what I wanted, measured the walls, and started building. At the end of this post is a video I made showing the whole process.
I'm always, yes always on the prowl for picture frames and I've never been stumped yet on what to recreate with them! They are so much fun to work with and the ideas are endless but this might be a "new" idea?? I was inspired by the obsession everyone has to have greenery in their homes nowadays either real or faux. The cactus craze has been one of them leading me to creating a faux succulent garden, Hens and Chicks in a picture frame!!

Multiple Bubbling Urn Fountain Feature with Pondless Waterfall recently installed at Fox Chase Golf Club Pavilion in Lancaster County, PA. This project included installation of a water feature with 3 bubbling urns varying in size, and a stream and waterfalls. LED lighting was also installed throughout both water features. The Bubbling Urn Fountains are also equipped with the aquascape fire fountain add on kit. These beautiful bubbling urns will turn to amazing fire fountains during the evening hours. Combining fire and water will transform any outdoor space into a cozy backyard paradise.

This is how we made a solar powered waterfall for our new fairy herb garden. It cost us less than $10 to make, and is such a fun feature to have.
I found these glasses at my local thrift store and they were perfect for a custom spray paint makeover.

One of my favorite things to do when I go north to my mom's house is to visit the local dump. My hometown small dump separates all of the stuff brought into the dump in piles and has a big storage container for used furniture, household items and books. It's open to the public and I'm on a first name basis with the dump manager! On my last visit home I found two gazebo frames calling my name. With the help of my sister we loaded them and took them home. I already had a plan for this find.
One of the things I disliked about our home is the red brick and red roof. Red is just not my thing. Especially since the brick is only on the front and doesn’t match the rest of the house. But I didn't know what to do...It hit me that I could paint it dark, creating a beautiful contrast.
I was recently gifted a set of wind chimes for my birthday. And I was so excited because if you can believe it, I have actually never had a set of wind chimes before. However, the wind chimes did not really match the decor I already have for my porch. So there went my little creative brain again for this easy wind chime refresh project. I thought that with a little spray paint and TLC, I could really make these into something special for my porch. And I am so happy with how they turned out! Keep on reading to see just how simple and easy it is to make!
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!

So my hubby made my dreams come true this summer by helping me make a stock tank pool in our backyard! If you’ve been wondering how to make one too, I am going to outline all the steps for you here. It’s definitely not as hard as you think it may be! I was honestly surprised because I thought this project would be a little out of our DIY range. But it turned out to be just fine and it only took us a couple of weekends to finish. This is the perfect solution if you don’t have a neighborhood pool to enjoy this summer. Keep on reading to see just how easy and simple this DIY stock tank pool is!

Here we go again, I am making over another thrift store find! This candle holder is one of those items I bought because it was only $1.00 and I knew someday I would do something with it! Well, someday was like YEARS later HAHA! I had kind of forgotten about it and I also wasn’t set on what I wanted to do with it, so it got pushed to the side. The other day I was organizing some of my craft stash and had it all piled and one thing sitting next to another and it all fell into place….I am not sure if that happens to you, but it does to me! All. The. Time! This came out better than anything I had envisioned for this candle holder! Come join me while for this thrifted candle holder makeover!
I have the perfect way for you to use up some of your old game pieces! With just a few supplies, I made these DIY Rock Garden Markers and they turned out adorable. I have a bag of random game pieces that I’ve collected over the years. I have lots of Monopoly houses, that turned out to be perfect for this project.
In the furniture refinishing world, there's nothing better than finding a great piece of furniture on the side of the road 🎉While taking my pup for a walk, a few doors down from me had this beautiful MCM (mid century modern) desk that was in great shape just sitting on the curb waiting for the garbage truck to pick it up 🤦♀️ Obviously, I couldn't let this beauty disappear forever, so I ran back to my house and dropped off my pup, grabbed my van, and went back to pick up the perfect gem!Read on to see how I transformed a plain desk into a modern beauty.............*Whenever picking up a used piece of furnure, you want to inspect it really well for any sign of bugs, but this rule is especially true for those "curbside" pieces. You can even wrap a large black bag (or 2, 3, 4, how many it takes to tightly cover it) around the piece and spray insecticide in it, preferably one for bedbugs. Tightly cover the piece and tie it closed. Allow it to sit in the sun for 48 hours, dispose of the bag(s) and continue on as usual.*Price is based on the amount of product used, not the initial cost of the products*Time is based on work time only, does not include dry time
This is an off the wall type project; but it's fun and unique! I have had this wood ladder for a while now. Originally, I painted it and added wood planks as shelves, to create a ladder shelf of sorts. Over the years, the ladder has just been sitting in a corner; but an idea came to me! Why not create a fun piece of decor that's different and not your typical "shelf."That's when I decided a hanging basket plant and some old suitcases could really help turn this old ladder into something fun!
