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.

Round coffee table – you won’t believe the before!

You’ve heard me say it again and again – if you can find a piece that is made of solid wood, it is so worth saving!  Take this Game-of-Thrones-crazy round coffee table that I picked up for $40 and refinished to a beautiful statement piece for my family room.

I finally have a completed project to share with you – and it feels like it’s been FOR-E-VER!

Peekaboo Desk Makeover

It’s funny (not funny haha, but funny strange) that two of my favourite people on the planet are going through a divorce/separation at the same time I am.  It’s meant that I’ve had shoulder’s to cry on and hopefully I’ve given mine a bit in return.

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!
