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 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 […]
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)
I hang on to pages from magazines and keep them tucked away in a binder – I call it my “I can do that” stash.
I trash-dove this morning.
Okay not really into the trash and I didn’t really “dive” – more like I snuck a plastic jug from my friend’s recycling.
After you see what I did with it, you’re going to go in search of recycling to pilfer as well.
I’ll start with the need, so you know where I’m coming from;
that is how my children store their goggles – thrown over the edge of the pool […]
This is going to be a short post today – I mean, what more can I say than “drawer shelf” for you to know the entirety of the project?
I’ve had this drawer sitting in my garage for months. I was going to make a butler’s table, I was going to use it for a small herb garden, I was going to use it to store pillows or a couple of blankets… but I never got around to any of those.
Are you starting to get the feeling that my backyard beautification goals are never-ending?
I’m sorry, I can’t help myself – my backyard is far and away my favourite room of our house. I love the sunshine, fresh air and chillaxing while the kids run wild playing or swimming. I love that there is almost no clean-up required before or after hosting friends – tidy is just a garden hose away. I love that friends swing by on a whim and we […]
Turn a damaged, dated and dirty headboard into a gorgeous garden bench with Rust-Oleum® Canada.
This project is limited only by your imagination – you can pick up any headboard and footboard (matching or otherwise), in any size from crib to king and paint it in any colour under the rainbow (or paint it like a rainbow if you like) to create a gorgeous upcycled headboard garden bench!
First up, scour your basement, your parents’ basement, garage sales and thrift […]
The photos, and this post itself, is an oldie – but given that the number of ‘screens’ in this house has only increased, it seemed a good time to revisit our original iPad charging station solution.
Not to make redundant the USB outlets I installed last week, but instead to show you an easier and cheaper way to corral cords and electronics, I give you my brilliant (and cheap) iPad charging station…
from a magazine holder!
Ikea carries a small dresser – just about the size of a large nightstand – called the Rast. It’s an insanely popular product on Pinterest for both the price ($35 US, $49 Cdn) and for the million-and-one ways people have “hacked” it (aka – changed it from boring to BLAM!)
I have a craft room update on my mind, and in searching out affordable options I came across these gorgeous (and brilliant) Ikea Rast hacks that I had to share.
