Hot Glue Gun Holder

Keep your craft room tidy and surfaces free of hot glue with this simple, scrap wood hot glue gun stand.

I post to Instagram and Facebook stories every now and then and was thinking – “but my blog friends can’t see what I’m up to!” so I thought I’d incorporate a short video or two into my posts so that you can see just how weird and wonderful I am my days are.

Last week, in the throes of a divorce and […]

New Life – New Nightstand

I took a 1970’s style nightstand and updated it with a drawer and a current stain to bring it back to beauty.  Check out this awesome nightstand makeover!

As many of you know, I am newly separated.  I bring it up not to bad-talk anyone, but to explain why this latest makeover came about; you see, Hubby and I decided that I would keep all of my daughters’ bedroom furniture and in exchange he got to keep the master bedroom furniture… […]

DIY Shower Stool

If you’re tired of doing shower contortionism just to shave your legs, then this little DIY shower stool is the perfect option for you.  At roughly $8 and less than 2 hours of your time, you can whip one out and keep your balance while keeping your legs hair-free!

I’m going to premise this post with a warning that this is NOT actually a sitting stool.  This is a small stool for shaving your legs in the shower and is more […]

Cement Pears

Add a bit of industrial coolness to your decor without mixing up concrete or spending a fortune.  Check out how I turned this fake fruit into cement pears for my home decor using just a cement spray paint!

I’m working on an awesome workbench for my She-shop.  This beauty is 4′ by 8′ with both my mitre saw and table saw fit right into the build plans.  It has drawers and room for a shop vac and, and, and…  you’ll see […]

What clamps do you need for woodworking?

As a DIYer with no formal training in wood-working, my clamp game was sketchy at best.  To resolve this – and to help you  – I’ve done the research and talked to the professionals to help you with a beginner’s kit that will see you through most small-build projects.

What are clamps for?

Despite common misconceptions, putting together furniture isn’t about a hammer and nails.  Most pieces you’ll build – from nightstands to coffee tables – will be held together with a […]

#OrganizeThis – Small parts bins

Get your workshop organized without breaking the bank by making your own small parts bins to house screws, nails, bolts, and hardware – better still, attach them with a french cleat system for easy removal and return.

Good morning everyone!

It’s a GREAT morning – mainly because I’m part of a group challenge today called #OrganizeThis.  Seventeen of the best DIY Bloggers in the business were put to the challenge to organize an area of their home that has become out of […]

Painted Shoes

Take your shoes from bland to BLAM! with a few fabric markers and a bit of imagination.  Check out the hand-painted shoes my tweens and I made.

The girls and I were in Florida a couple of weeks ago when we came across these canvas shoes at Michael’s.

I’m a lover of “Chucks” (Converse) and my girls both love the look of Vans, and at $8 a pair it was too good to pass up.  We picked up a pair each and […]
