DIY Guinea Pig Hide

Using a few pieces of scrap ¼” plywood and a bit of imagination, my daughter and I created this ADORABLE DIY guinea pig hide VW bus for our fur-babies!We have been having so much fun over here!

We have two new additions to our family:  Chanel (Tri-colour) and Pixie – Miss Maddie’s new guinea pigs and they are ADORABLE!

This started because Maddie wanted to foster dogs – and I told her we absolutely would – but I needed to get some […]

Hot Glue Gun Holder

Keep your craft room tidy and surfaces free of hot glue with this simple, scrap wood hot glue gun stand.

I post to Instagram and Facebook stories every now and then and was thinking – “but my blog friends can’t see what I’m up to!” so I thought I’d incorporate a short video or two into my posts so that you can see just how weird and wonderful I am my days are.

Last week, in the throes of a divorce and […]

Tablet charging station

Create calm out of entryway chaos by making your own iPad/iPhone charging station and mail sorter – perfect for corralling cords, electronics, keys and sunglasses.

A few years ago I posted about a simple solution for storing and charging your iPad, iPod, iPhone, idontcare electronics. It was a wood magazine rack that I tipped on it’s back and then drilled holes through the bottom for cords to feed through.

It was great!

A bit big and bulky, and it was […]

DIY Watch Box

Using a dollar store photo frame, some scrap wood and a few rollers, I was able to build this gorgeous DIY watch box to showcase 9 of Hubby’s favourite watches.

I was playing with scrap wood in the garage the other day and wanted to see if I could make a watch box to display all of Hubby’s watches.

I had a small pane of glass that came from an 8×10 dollar store picture frame that had sat in my garage for […]

Scrap Wood Wine Rack

Four pieces of scrap wood are all you need to build this small wine rack – perfect for holding up to 7 bottles of your favourite red (or white).

I’m starting out the New Year with a wish list of projects that is almost overwhelming.  The problem isn’t any one project in particular, it’s the “but firsts” that precede each.

I’ve finally weakened Hubby’s resolve and am finally going to do that kitchen makeover I’ve hinted at for 2 years…

but first I […]

House-shaped candle holder

Make these Scandinavian-inspired wooden houses (to hold flameless candles) with a few scraps of wood and a bit of glue.

I love Scandinavian decor – ESPECIALLY come winter when every image is hygge (“a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment as cozy, charming or special.”)  I love scrolling through Instagram and seeing rustic stone fireplaces, sheepskin (faux of course) throws, and candles casting a warm glow.

Since I had one Christmas gift left to DIY before Santa’s […]
