I've been seeing these dollar store hurricane candle holders all over the internet and decided it was time to make myself some! Wish I'd done it a lot sooner! These are so easy and inexpensive! So versatile too!!
As a part of our backyard transformation, my husband had to have a shed/shop! This is a chronicling of that project!
Tons of pictures and more information is available if wanted!
I needed a new rug for my outdoor patio but didn't want to spend too much so I found a rug at Home Depot for $17, applied a stencil pattern to it and sealed it with spray on poly. Not sure how it will hold up but our weather in South Texas is mild so I'm curious to see how it does! At this price, I may make another one for the holidays!
We've done a lot of DIY projects in our backyard and I'm showcasing them all in a series called Backyard Retreat! First up in our series is "wooden awnings"!

I found this settee at a thrift shop for $38. The bones were good but it was tired looking and a little worn. I decided to try my hand at painting it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!
Since we are empty nesters, we hardly ever use our kitchen eating area for eating anymore. My husbands computer had made its way down from upstairs so we could be together during the evenings yet be on different computers if we wanted to. It was driving me crazy so we repurposed the room and now it fits our needs perfectly! Additional info and pictures can be seen at http://twelveoaksmanor.com!
We wanted to increase our outdoor living area and create privacy from neighbors! Solution: pavered patio and arbors!! You can see the whole story and more pictures at http://twelveoaksmanor.com!
