My First Attempt at Sewing

Yes, that’s right, sewing.  I’ve been wanting to learn for a long time, and I finally did.  We’ve had a brand spankin’ new machine my mom got us for Christmas that hasn’t been touched really since then.  But last week a sweet friend of mine, Sherri, came over and taught me.  She showed me how […]

A Princess Birthday Party Hat

Well, luckily you can’t see my tears through your computer screen, but my little princess is going to be 1 year old on Friday.  It’s been very emotional for me planning her little party.  I just can’t believe she’s almost 1.  It doesn’t take much for me to cry or tear up.  I’ve been tearing […]

What I Created Out of an Old Drawer

A Book Makeover! Yes, A Book Makeover…

My Prized Possessions…Hutch and Buffet Redo

Have you inherited an ugly piece of furniture whenever you got married?  I have.  It was our dining room buffet table.  I’ve lived with it for 4 years now, and it was time for an overhaul when I found this hutch at Goodwill to go on top of it. Goodwill had it marked for $99, […]

Well, I Thought I Had an Original Idea…

…until I did a search on Google and saw that these have been made…like all over the place!  I should have never searched to make sure.  What a buzz-kill!  It was just too clever that someone other than me thought this idea up.  Haha.  But, I’m still going to show you! So, remember one of […]

Front Porch Facelift

First of all, I don’t really think what we have is considered a “porch” but I didn’t know what else to call it.  Entryway, walkway, or is it a porch? So, here is our porch (or entryway, walkway?) before.  And this picture was from December when it snowed because I was a bad blogger and […]

My Numbered Flower Pots!

Remember these pots I found at the thrift store recently?  Well part of sprucing up my front porch included painting them.  I haven’t done the small pots yet…those are for inside the house, I think. So I painted them Rustoleum satin black.  I don’t have pictures of that because that is pretty self explanatory. :) […]

Rosette Lamps With Easy Tutorial

I wanted to give a quick tutorial on how I made these rosettes for the lamps in our master bedroom redo. I’m sure I am not the first person to do it this way, but all of the tutorials I saw included tying a knot and using a pencil, and/or some sort of sewing was […]

I Finally Made a Wreath!

My front door has been so naked without anything on it.  I don’t know why wreaths stress me out, but they do.  Then once I do it, it’s SO easy.  But all of those aisles at Hobby Lobby with strands of greenery and flowers everywhere just makes me nervous.  I’m a dork, I know.  I […]

Easy Wall Art

When I redid our master bedroom, I didn’t want to buy a lot of art pieces to hang on the wall because I was on a budget, and I wanted something more original.  And I also was liking the simplicity of the room, and didn’t feel like I had to fill up every inch of […]

Painted Nightstands

Part of the master bedroom redo involved updating these nightstands.  These are actually living room end tables, but we use them as our nightstands.  They serve their purpose, they are pretty (now they are), and they were free!  I’ve actually had them many years. They came with my furniture set my mom bought for me […]

Concealing the clutter

Do you have an entertainment center that has glass cabinets like we do?  The kind where you can see all the junk gaming systems, unorganized DVD’s, and anything else that landed in there?  Well, I hate clutter as much as I hate roaches.  Actually, I am terrified of roaches, but that’s for a different post […]
