DIY Cat Tree

April 16th, 2018|BUILD IT, DIY|

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you will know that we’ve had a new addition to our family – Baby Luna Grayce – an 8 week old kitten that has stolen all of our hearts.

The thing about new kittens though is that they have these spurts of energy that usually result in some kind of damage; climbing curtains, falling between the stair rails, tipped plants and scratching.  Oh my God the […]

April 12th, 2018|DECOR, DIY|

Today’s the day bloggers everywhere showcase the progress they’ve made for their projects in the Spring 2018 One Room Challenge.  I’ve submitted my parent’s basement – which houses a theatre room section and a home gym section – as my challenge entry.One Room Challenge Spring 2018

This week was all about boxing up all the shit items that have turned their home gym into a hoarder’s haven.

I wouldn’t say that I’m […]

Spring 2018 One Room Challenge – Basement makeover

April 6th, 2018|DECOR, DIY|

I am a couple of days late in posting this, but I was back and forth on whether or not to submit my parent’s basement makeover into the Spring 2018 edition of the One Room Challenge.

The basement needs a LOT of work, and the basement makeover will be dramatic – but I wasn’t sure if I would have 6 weeks worth of content to share on […]

DIY side table / small bookshelf

April 4th, 2018|BUILD IT, DECOR, DIY|

As you may (or may not) know, I am a guest contributor over on the amazing, incredible, brilliant blog House of Wood.  Over the past few months, I have shared a few builds that you would not have seen on 100Things2Do like a super-sized shoe rack, a DIY upholstered ottoman, and this week’s awesome DIY; a mid-century-modern style DIY side table / mini-bookshelf.

I won’t share the full building plans here, but I can give you a […]

Pallet Potting Bench

March 11th, 2018|BUILD IT, DIY, REPURPOSE|

In my part of Ontario the rule is not to plant until after Victoria Day weekend.
(nicknamed “May two-four” – since people usually drink 24 beers on the long weekend).

With this up-and-down winter we’re having, the Spring weather had me thinking of planting.  Don’t worry, I know we’ll get at least 3 more ‘good’ […]

Good morning!

If you have clicked over from House of Wood – welcome!  If you start your day with 100T2D – then you need to click over to House of Wood to see another project that I built/made using a concrete form.

For this post though, I want to show you a couple more ideas of things you can make (easily) with a concrete form:

  • House of Wood is showcasing my ottoman/footstool.
  • The other day I showed you how simple […]

In-cupboard hair dryer holder

February 22nd, 2018|BUILD IT, DIY, ORGANIZE|

Are you sick of my bathroom yet?

Can you hang in there for one last post on how I organized it by making an in-cupboard hair dryer holder?

Prior to my bathroom makeover the other day, I was using a store-bought hair dryer holder that just hung over my bathroom cupboard door – and it worked perfectly – except that over time it scuffed and scratched up my cabinetry.  While painting my bathroom cabinets wasn’t a ton of work, it’s certainly […]

Painting bathroom cabinets

February 16th, 2018|BEFORE & AFTER, DECOR, DIY|

I was provided with Rust-Oleum Krud Kutter and Bullseye 1-2-3 primer for this “Painting bathroom cabinets” post.

My bathroom has bugged me for a little while now.  Our cabinets are 13 years old and are showing the wear and tear of the years everywhere.  Hubby doesn’t seem to notice, but they are glaring to me.

Come on!  How can you NOT notice?!  (On the upside, if […]

DIY – Free-Standing Pet Gate

February 8th, 2018|BUILD IT, DIY, REPURPOSE|

Do you have a dog?
Do you want to keep that dog contained somehow – like off of your carpet with their muddy little paws?

We did.
We had two BIG dogs.
With BIG muddy feet.
AND they liked to greet people at the door… but not everyone was thrilled at the prospect of 200 lbs of dog […]

Painted Vases for Home Decor

February 4th, 2018|DECOR, DIY, REPURPOSE|

Do you have a cupboard or a shelf somewhere that is holding a plethora of glass vases?  Perhaps from birthdays over the years?

I do – or rather I did until I saw this image from the cover of FrontGate Magazine (Feb.2017 issue)

Frontgate Magazine, cover February 2017

I hang on to pages from magazines and keep them tucked away in a binder – I call it my “I can do that” stash.

Those […]
