Today’s project is another great way to create unique pieces to remember places that you’ve visited. These are also just exquisite gifts for someone special who’s heart belongs to the ocean.I use real sand that I collected on a trip to Miami and some shells from my beach wedding in Scotland.If you’re interesting in buying this clock then it’s currently for sale in my Etsy store along with lots of other resin goodies. The link is below in my closing paragraph.I also run a YouTube channel where I’ve filmed the entire process for this project which you may find easier to follow.

I wanted a large farmhouse clock for our home but didn't want to pay the large price....answer.....make my own, from a coffee table :)
I had been looking for the perfect clock for a while. I wanted something that would be clean and simple, but still make a statement. This mid-century modern sunburst clock was the perfect answer to what I had been looking for. It utilizes scrap wood and doesn’t cost a lot at all. You probably already have most of what you need for it lying around your house, and whatever you don’t have isn’t hard to find. Follow this step-by-step guide to help you make your own!
Have you too noticed the farmhouse clock craze of late?Well, I couldn't just stand by and watch it all happen!So I dug through my scrap wood and junk pile stash, dreaming up a way to create my own take on a clock... with no working clock parts in stock I might add.The result is a fun take on a classic... you'll soon see what I mean. Who wants to be on time anyway?!Here's how I made this:
Can I tell y’all how much I love to create cutesy crafts? These super sweet and kinda sassy Patriotic Clay Pot Love Bugs went together in just about 30 minutes with simple supplies from Dollar Tree (and my craft stash)! Get the kiddos involved and then have some family fun time, being creative.
This Dollar Tree Patriotic Straw Vase is one of the easiest DIY’s EVER. Last year I made this patriotic wreath (which was also super easy) using Dollar Tree paper straws and this year I decided to try decorating a Dollar Tree vase using the same straws.
Alissa HaganPlay Kitchen RemodelIt seems kitchens are a trending theme in my world recently. I have been helping a client with a kitchen remodel/refresh and now gave my girls' play kitchen a small makeover! I acquired this play kitchen before we even had kids. Honestly, I think it was even before we were married that I snagged the stove and the sink unit at a garages sale for $10. It sat for years collecting dust and moved three times, but I knew one day we would have kids and a play kitchen would be a great learning experience. I don't have pictures of what they looked like when i bought them, but just imagine wood kitchen units that left a lot to the imagination. The first makeover came when our oldest daughter was three. The stove unit got a door and hardware and the sink unit got an actual sink and faucet recycled from a bathroom remodel. We painted it a bright turquoise blue and gave it to her at Christmas. The first "remodel" cost us the price of spray paint and some hinges for the oven door. Everything else, the towel ring, faucet, sink bowl and oven handle were all recycled from a bathroom remodel my parents had done.

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.

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.
This time of year is the greatest … back out in the garden, in the sun, doing yard work, and mowing. I can get some of my best thinking done while I'm on a mower.I love to repurpose and upcycle, so it's also the perfect time to start pulling out my stuff and making new things for my yard and garden.
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!
I found myself scrolling through market place on Facebook when I came across a fire surround for £10 I Messaged the seller and arranged to collect.I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it at first but knew it would come in use.My day off work came around with nothing to do I went into the shed, I found an old wallpaper I had bought and never used aswel as a foam dado rail I found on ebay over a year ago, I brought everything into the dining room. I had wallpaper paste in the cupboard aswel as scissor and a Stanley knife. Within 4 hours I had completely changed the look of the dining room. I'd picked up the grey eggshell paint for another project a few weeks back so had everything I needed. My total spend for this project was £10 even if I had bought everything at once it still would have come in under £50
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.
If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I enjoy switching up spaces every now and then. Our back entry used to have a closed in coat closet, which was great but as we don’t usually enter through the back, I found it to be a waste of space.
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!
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 .
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
