I’ve been sitting in front of my computer for hours – literally HOURS!

My F*&%ing iMac is working at a snail’s pace again and my photos are all locked up.  I only bought this computer in 2019 (although it is a 2017 model – I don’t know how that […]

Slatted plant stand for a bay window

Do you have a bay window?  One that lets in lots of natural light, but is impossible to fit a piece of furniture in?  Today I’m showing how I made a slatted plant stand to take advantage of the light without taking up much space.

My Aunt has a green thumb.

It’s kind of irritating really, because I TRY. SO. HARD. to keep indoor plants alive.

I water, I fertilize, I place them near windows – and so far I’ve all-but-killed 3 in […]

Make a lap desk by bending wood

Whether you’re dreaming of breakfast in bed, or need a surface for your WFH job, today I’m testing out how to make a lap desk by bending wood.  One board and a bit of care to your own DIY lap desk.

Does the idea of lounging in bed on a Sunday morning, toes tucked under the blankets, hot coffee/tea within reach and a good book or iPad at hand for a long and lazy morning sound appealing?

True, for most of us […]

Christmas sled

It’s TIME!!

Time to get building for the Holidays and I’m starting my Holiday builds with this DIY Christmas sled.
Easy, inexpensive and a great beginner building project!

I know, there are tons of plans online for wooden sleds (decorative).  Heck, I used Fynes Designs sled plans to build this little cutie:

Fynes Designs Christmas sled

Which I love, but is not really mass-produceable.   There are several small cuts and notches that require a pretty […]

How to wrap a canvas print

Looking for inexpensive artwork for your home?  I found canvas prints on WISH that were of HomeSense/HomeGoods quality, but just needed to be wrapped. Today I’ll show you how easy it is to wrap a canvas print (and save mucho moolah!)

Have you heard of WISH?

It’s an online store out of China, where dozens/maybe hundreds of manufacturers sell their products to the world.

In the experiences I’ve had (which are less than 12), I’ve found the products to be less-than-high-quality, but VERY […]

Building plans for a small shed

Need some extra storage for bicycles, garbage bins, patio furniture etc?  These building plans for a small shed have you covered!

I’m SO PROUD of this build!

Really, if I could keep it for myself (if I had a need and the space), I totally would – my bike shed/small shed is SO BEAUTIFUL!

What makes me even more proud is that I used recycled wood from my parent’s old fence.  Saved a good chunk of pressure treated from landfill and cut the […]

Face Mask Storage Rack

Looking for a way to organize face masks for easy grab-and-go, or home-and-remove?  Today I’m showing a simple mask storage rack you can make using dollar store items!

Good morning, good morning!!

I’m in a GREAT mood today – which is actually quite contrary to my cranky week.

Maybe it’s the Fall weather, maybe it’s that my window box over my garage is looking so spectacular (I think anyways) or maybe it’s because I’ve (finally) finished SO MANY outstanding projects that a weight […]
