Patio console table / BBQ table

A few 2″x8″ and 2″x2″ boards and an afternoon of your time and you too can have this functional (and SO PRETTY) patio console table / bbq table.

You guys,

I built this thing over a month ago, but I was holding off on posting an article until my petunias grew in so I could have a beautiful window box display over top…

It’s been over a month and it’s not looking like my petunias will ever be photo-worthy, and no one will […]

Porch Planter Bench

Do you have a small front porch?  One that is an easy target for porch pirates?  Whip up one of these porch planter benches in just a few hours to add curb appeal AND create a drop space for deliveries to be hidden away from view.

Happy Sunday everyone!

I’m finally getting my rear-in-gear and sharing the building plans for this awesome (if I do say so myself) porch planter bench that I made back in early May.

My friend lives in a […]

Freestanding Plant Shelf

This freestanding plant shelf can be manipulated for so many uses – a cedar plant stand (as in this article) bathroom storage or for a child’s bedroom if painted white, and Crate & Barrel are selling a teak version (at $800 US) that looks spectacular as office furniture.  These free building plans will help you with whatever version fits your home and needs.

You wanna know what’s been going on over here?

You don’t really, but I’m ticked so I’m going to […]

One-weekend backyard makeover – on a budget!

What can you do with $280 (CDN), a weekend and a bit of elbow grease?  

How about a COMPLETE backyard makeover?!

I love dramatic before and after projects – HGTV has made millions on people like me eating up every program (the beginnings and endings anyways) of incredible transformations done on a budget, as a DIY, and with ingenious tips and tricks to help you do it at home.

That’s why, when my friend moved into his new place, I couldn’t wait […]

Over-the-toilet-shelf

Short on space and money, but need extra storage in your bathroom? This easy DIY over-the-toilet shelf is a perfect fit!

Did you know that 4.4 million Canadians rent their home?

In the U.S., roughly 36% of the population live in rental units.

That’s a LOT!

I have nothing against rental units other than that you can’t go to town DIYing everything – particularly permanent fixtures – without approval beforehand, or loss of your security deposit afterwards.

Kind of a bummer for someone that likes […]

Sunshine bags – with free printable label

In this isolated, quarantined, socially distanced and stay-at-home world, finding things to do can be exhausting.  I decided to challenge my girls to come up with Sunshine bags for friends and family and it brightened both our and their day immeasurably.

Good morning friends!

How’s isolation treating you?

I’m lucky in that I am a (non-essential really) essential worker, so I’m able to get out of the house for a few hours each day and have a change of scenery and some (distanced) […]
