Dipped Pinecones

November 8th, 2017|CRAFTS, DECOR, HOLIDAYS|

I had so many problems with these dipped pinecones – which were supposed to be bleached pinecones when I started – but in the end, I’m pleased with the results.

It started because I have a pine tree in my backyard that is pissed at me for pruning off branches.  He’s showing his protest by making sure to drip sap everywhere and by dropping more pinecones than ever before.

That tree is on my last nerve I tell you.  My poor Lacey […]

But… the final reveal isn’t until November 16th, so I have to space out my remaining few projects to keep you on the edge of your seats.

Okay, okay – it’s not an “edge of your seat” type makeover, but it is pretty dramatic – or pretty and […]

Choosing a kitchen faucet – go hands-free!

October 31st, 2017|CLEAN, DECOR|

I received the Pfister Raya faucet in exchange for providing a review to my readers.

I’ve mentioned before that we built our house back in 2005 and, as with any build, costs were a constant concern so we opted for “builder’s grade” on a few essentials, like faucets, because we knew we could upgrade down the road.

One of our budget-buys was this little kitchen faucet.

This is a sponsored post; MD Building Products provided the metal sheeting used for this project.

Yup – I actually learned how to make a lamp this past weekend and it is SO SIMPLE!

You could make a lamp out of just about anything, all you need is this little lamp kit.

I had a vision in mind though; we have a huge sofa, and behind […]

It’s week 3 of the One Room Challenge – also known as ORC – and there’s a chance I’ve bit off more than I can chew.

Wait till you see what I did yesterday – A DIY fireplace surround in STONE!

I met with Aspect Peel & Stick Tiles when I was at the Haven conference in July and their displays were gorgeous.  I was offered the opportunity to try some out, but could not think of a single place to put them until I mentioned it to my Dad…

turns out he had a fireplace in his […]

One Room Challenge – Week 1

October 9th, 2017|DECOR|

Have you heard of the “One Room Challenge”?

It’s a twice-a-year challenge where bloggers are given 6 weeks to totally makeover one room in their home.

It started Thursday, October 5th, so I’m a few days late in posting my entry as a guest contributor, but I am certainly in on the action and can’t wait to see what amazing transformations everyone comes up with.
