DIY King Size Bed

Take it from me, building a bed – even a DIY king size bed with upholstered panels – is NOT as difficult as you might think.  With plans from Rogue Engineer as my jumping off point, I was able to build this Rachel Ray knock-off for about $255 US!

Dollar Store Hallowe’en Wreath

Entice ghouls and goblins to your door with this simple and inexpensive Dollar Store Hallowe’en wreath!  Deco-mesh, a wreath form and some seasonal picks are all you need.

Good morning!  Happy October!

Truthfully, I only like October for the weather – I’m not really a Hallowe’en fan.

We have HUNDREDS of kids come by our house Trick-or-Treating – literally hundreds – and the constant doorbell ringing makes me crazy. I wish all the kids would just come to my house in one massive […]

Make your own car decal

Upgrade your wheels with a simple, funny DIY car decal like this “Objects in mirror are losing” I made today.

I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately, but I’ve been full of piss and vinegar!  Off-colour jokes, highly competitive games of Blink – The World’s Fastest Game! (affiliate link, but an AWESOME game!!), pinball, PacMan and an overall urge to laugh and cause trouble.

It’s wonderful!

I’ve […]

Do-It-Yourself Rummoli Board

Do you remember Rummoli from when you were a child?  I used to play with my grandparents and it was a treasured memory I’d like to revisit with my kids.  This DIY Rummoli board is made with ¼” mdf and some spray paint, and will last for years – so they too can share the fun with their kids!

My parents recently brought out their Rummoli board from 1940.  It’s a Copp Clark paper version that my Step-Dad used to play […]

Make Your Own Beeswax Wraps

Canada is implementing (or trying to implement) a ban on certain ‘single-use plastics’ by 2021; things like straws, plastic plates, cutlery, bags and stir sticks to name a few.  It’s not nearly enough to reverse the damage we’ve done to the planet, but it is a move in the right direction and these DIY beeswax wraps are just one of many ways our family is participating.

Side Yard Surprise

This side yard makeover “before and after” isn’t very dramatic – but it wasn’t very expensive either – and sometimes elbow grease is all you need to transform a space.

This was the side yard at my parent’s house. Like any side yard, it houses pipes and hoses and the air conditioner as well as miscellaneous outdoor items that wouldn’t fit in the garage. (I’m pretty sure I tipped the garbage can over – not my parents – this will […]
