Patio side table (with lights!)

Add solar lights to this simple patio side table build and create a gentle glow on your patio for those warm, summer nights.

This project didn’t turn out quite how I’d envisioned.

I wanted to make a small side table for the patio with an opaque plexiglass top and a warm overall glow coming out from the top and sides.

But I broke the plexiglass.  I broke 3 sheets actually. 🤦🏻‍♀️  So I had to improvise…

I rifled through my wood pile and decided […]

Make your own wood Canadian flag

With Canada Day around the corner, now is a great time to use up scrap bits and make a wood Canadian flag to decorate inside or outside your home. 

There were a lot of likes and comments on my scrap wood mosaic post the other day (thank you so much!), one of which suggested that I use the same technique and make a wood Canadian flag sign.

I have made a wooden Canadian flag in the […]

Simple Cat Ladder

If you have an outdoor cat and a high fence, abundance of coyotes, or he’s just old and not-as-nimble, this simple cat ladder will help.

Popping in for a quick and dirty today (Yeah!)

‘Quick’ post that is in my ‘dirty’ backyard – get your minds out of the gutter! 😂

Mr. Odie, our 8 year old orange tabby is “solidly built”.  I won’t say he’s obese because I believe in “more to love”, but he is about 20lbs which means he is […]

Wood art – scrap wood mosaic

This wood mosaic was made up of scrap wood pieces – all less than 5″ in length! If you’ve got bits of wood, you’ve got wood art.

This project my friends is a GREAT way to use up scrap bits of wood.

We’re talking teeny, tiny bits that you’ve held on to in the hopes that someday you *might need a 4″ piece of wood for something. 

Not you?  Yes, I have a problem 😂

I have been dying to try a wood […]

Pantry organizer for spice packets

Do you have dry mix packages cluttering up your your cupboards or pantry? This simple pantry organizer for spice packets will keep them organized.

I did a poll on Instagram recently about what content you would like to see more of on the blog.  Gratefully, the majority vote was “small builds”.  Whew!

There are some bigger builds coming this summer, but I was worried that I was letting you down with smaller projects, so it was a great relief to know I […]
