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 […]

DIY Nightstands from Rogue Engineer

With easy-to-follow building plans, these Cooper bedside tables are a simple and inexpensive route to furnishing a bedroom – check out my DIY nightstands and see for yourself!

I FINALLY have a build to share with you today!

I started these Do It Yourself (DIY) nightstands at the end of January, but with recent events, a trip to Florida and two girls with extensive dental work, they took a back-burner to more pressing items.

I got them done though!  Final coat of paint […]

Printable Book Plate

If you are Kon Mari’ing your home, or are the type to share books after you’ve read them, then these free, printable book plates are a great addition to your donations.  Give the next reader a brief critique and then encourage them to pass the book along as well.

I’m in a bit of a holding pattern of late.  As you may know if you follow me on InstaStories, Hubby and I are separating.  It’s a sad, tense and overwhelming experience […]

Messy t-shirt

Find any definition that fits your situation and turn it into a funny, declarative piece of clothing to show off – in my case, this “Messy t-shirt” fit the bill perfectly!

Good afternoon everyone!

I’m so sorry I’ve been AWOL of late; it’s not for lack of working – I actually have a ginormous workbench, 2 nightstands and a butcher block island coming soon to the blog – but it’s because my family is in a state of “flux”.

My husband and I […]
