Scrap wood trellis

Make your own garden trellis using scrap bits of wood and a little imagination.

I am SO EXCITED! just sent a super-secret shipment so that I can makeover my garage floor!  I guess that I didn’t really keep that secret eh? lol

It’s going to be a BEAST of a job – mostly because my garage is jam-packed with projects right now, and I’m going to have to re-home everything to get at the floors. 🤦🏻‍♀️

I started yesterday by selling off my […]

Pallet Board Desk with Total Boat

Working with epoxy resin doesn’t have to be daunting – trust me, I was daunted but was surprised at how easy it was to work with.  This pallet board desk is made up of rough, wormy wood, but the epoxy finish makes it a gorgeous working surface with character you won’t find anywhere else.

I can’t take credit for this project…

as much as I LOVE and am so thrilled with how it turned out, the idea wasn’t mine, but that doesn’t […]

Simple Raised Tray

A repurposed panel from an old nightstand, some decorative knobs and a bit of paint are all you need to create a pretty bathroom vignette with this simple raised tray.

I’ll start this post by apologizing.  I am not an interior designer, nor am I a professional stager or even photographer – which means that more often than not, my photos don’t do the project justice.  I’m working on it, and practice makes perfect, but believe me when I say these […]

The most gorgeous garden mirror you’ll ever see

A repurposed cast iron grate turned stunning garden mirror brings more light, colour and interest to your garden.

I picked up this old cast iron grate on MaxSold (like an online garage sale) months and months ago.  It might even be a remnant from last summer if I’m being honest, but I was too nervous to tackle it because I knew removing the rust was going to be a BEAST of a job.

DIY Candle Holders

Make a gorgeous vignette of candle holders for next-to-nothing by repurposing old furniture legs. 

Remember the coffee table I was working on the other day?  Well, project two of my repurposing/upcycling adventure was to take the legs from the table and make them into these beautiful, rustic candle holders.

Did I mention that these were completely free?  Free, fun and repurposing are three of my favourite things!

I got my destruction on by dismantling the worn out coffee table.

My FREE Family Command Centre

You don’t have to spend mucho-buckos to create a family command centre, in fact, our family command centre came in at a whopping $0!  Here’s how you can do it too!

I was futzing in the garage the other day and debating whether to refinish this free coffee table that a friend had dropped off.

Worn out coffee table, damaged coffee table, old side table

The colour was dated and the finish was pretty […]

Coastal Decor – flea market find

One of my favourite emails to receive are those from Birch Lane.  Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) they don’t ship to Canada, but that doesn’t stop me from pining over their perfectly styled photos of decor for your home.  It was one such photo that reminded me that I had these fishing weights tucked away, and how gorgeous they could look set out as some coastal decor on my patio.
