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 […]

Repurposed Plastic Jug

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 […]

My friend Serena had planned to make a hockey storage rack for her hubs (brilliant!) We found this solid-faced pallet and she was done…. Clearly we are not as close of […]

DIY Branch Table

DIY Branch Table

This DIY branch table post came about because my Step-Dad did some extensive pruning in their backyard.  I can’t remember if he asked me if I could use the branches, or if I saw them and asked him for them – but I had this branch table from Brent Comber pinned as a wish-list project […]
