Freestanding Plant Shelf

This freestanding plant shelf can be manipulated for so many uses – a cedar plant stand (as in this article) bathroom storage or for a child’s bedroom if painted white, and Crate & Barrel are selling a teak version (at $800 US) that looks spectacular as office furniture.  These free building plans will help you with whatever version fits your home and needs.

You wanna know what’s been going on over here?

You don’t really, but I’m ticked so I’m going to […]

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.

That’s why, when my friend moved into his new place, I couldn’t wait […]

Freestanding, Angled Bookcase – free building plans!

Build this Crate & Barrel “Strut Bookcase” knock-off for about $39 US (versus $799) with these free building plans for my freestanding, angled bookcase.

I’m happy today guys…

I was “nudged” back out to my She-Shop to get building again and after I (grudgingly) did, I felt inspired.

Frustrated with my errors (listed below), happy I could fix them, happy to have company to help and VERY happy with how this freestanding, angled bookcase turned out!

I started with this image I found on […]

Christmas Tree 2019

Introducing the 100Things2Do Christmas tree 2019!  A white and champagne colour scheme with natural elements thrown in for texture – this year’s Christmas tree shines day and night.

2019 has been a crazy-awful-horrible year at our house.  If you follow along, you know that the girls and I (and a menagerie of pets) found ourselves alone and struggling with all of the transformations that entailed.

It’s been almost a year and we have survived (and thrived) through birthdays, vacations, holidays and time […]

Chalk Couture – Screen printing you can do at home!

Have you ever been curious to try screen printing? What if I told you it’s something you can easily do in your own home with these pre-made Chalk Couture transfers?  I went to a really neat class last weekend and got to play around a bit and had to share.

I guess I should start with “this is NOT a sponsored post” – I don’t work for the company or earn any monies by telling you about this (not that I […]

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 […]
