DIY Shower Stool

If you’re tired of doing shower contortionism just to shave your legs, then this little DIY shower stool is the perfect option for you.  At roughly $8 and less than 2 hours of your time, you can whip one out and keep your balance while keeping your legs hair-free!

I’m going to premise this post with a warning that this is NOT actually a sitting stool.  This is a small stool for shaving your legs in the shower and is more […]

#OrganizeThis – Small parts bins

Get your workshop organized without breaking the bank by making your own small parts bins to house screws, nails, bolts, and hardware – better still, attach them with a french cleat system for easy removal and return.

Good morning everyone!

It’s a GREAT morning – mainly because I’m part of a group challenge today called #OrganizeThis.  Seventeen of the best DIY Bloggers in the business were put to the challenge to organize an area of their home that has become out of […]

I FINALLY have a build to share with you today!

I started these Do It Yourself (DIY) nightstands at the end of January, but with recent events, a trip to Florida and two girls with extensive dental work, they took a back-burner to more pressing items.

I got them done though!  Final coat of paint […]

Swapping out bathroom sconces

Changing out lighting isn’t nearly as difficult as I thought.  In truth, it’s a matter of taking off the old fixture, attaching 3 wires together and then screwing the face plate into place – couldn’t be easier!

Have I ever mentioned that I hate fixing things?

I do.  I’d rather build something completely new than fix something that’s broken.  I can’t explain it other than to say that I don’t find gratification in fixing something that’s broken – or at least not […]

Make your own DIY round lantern

Round lanterns are a nice break and contrast from the typical DIY lanterns you find online.  Today I’m showing off how I made these cuties with a scrollsaw and some scrap wood.

I saw these gorgeous lanterns on Instagram the other week and I thought they’d make an amazing gift for my SIL… unfortunately, I don’t live in Norway (this image is from a beautiful Norwegian IG feed) and I don’t know how to work with metal (yet).

Wooden Angel Wings

Create these wooden Angel wings as a keepsake decor piece for Christmas (or all year long) to commemorate the loss of a loved one. 

Someone I love lost someone they love in 2018.  I searched and searched to try to come up with a  heartfelt gift to commemorate their loss and let them know they are in my thoughts – especially during this emotional time of year.

I found a […]
