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) […]

Pallet Board Desk with Total Boat

Working with epoxy resin doesn’t have to be daunting – trust me, I was daunted but was surprised at how easy it was to work with.  This pallet board desk is made up of rough, wormy wood, but the epoxy finish makes it a gorgeous working surface with character you won’t find anywhere else.

I can’t take credit for this project…

as much as I LOVE and am so thrilled with how it turned out, the idea wasn’t mine, but that doesn’t […]

Quarantine Day 8

We arrived home from Florida last Saturday and are on Day 8 of our mandatory isolation period…

I thought I’d share today how well it’s going over here:

QUARANTINE DAY 1
– spent 5 hours on the Internet; letting friends and family know we are home safe, surfing FB and IG, ordering groceries for delivery and other online “window shopping”
– showered, shaved, deep conditioned, pore refining mask then lathered myself in skin cream … not sure why since no one will see me, […]
