How to Refinish Wood Floors without Sanding

I love our antique heart pine floors! They are beautifully distressed. The round pegs and square nails securing them in place add loads of character. However, the square nails sit flush with the surface preventing us from ever being able to refinish them with a sander. The nails would tear up the sandpaper in no time. But, that’s no problem because I know a way to Refinish Wood Floors without Sanding!

Psst, you’ll want to read to the end of this post to enter for the chance to win a year of cleaning services for your home and the Grand Prize: a trip for 4 to Hawaii!

Rustic Pallet Serving Tray

I’m in Dallas for a few days with my sister, working on creating a Bali-themed dream deck for +Thompson's WaterSeal. We shopped for a lot of the accessories ahead of time, but had a hard time putting our hands on a perfect Bali-esque tray. Sometimes, you just have to DIY it! This Rustic Pallet Serving Tray was the brainchild of my sister, Caitlin, but I took her idea and ran with it.

Here’s how to make one for yourself --- http://goo.gl/PT7kbw

Hidden Storage Under a Laundry Room Sink

Having a utility sink in the laundry room rocks! Having everything that we store underneath it on full display isn’t so rockin’. It was time to create some Hidden Storage Under our Laundry Room Sink.

Heart Shaped Topiary

Valentine's Day may be over but I have a tutorial to show you how easy it is to create a heart shaped topiary. Keep it for yourself or give it to the one you love. As the vine continues to grow, the heart will be embraced by the leaves and fill out.

I can't say enough good things about SuzAnna's Antiques. Tucked away beside the railroad tracks on Durant Rd. This place is a true gem in the rough. Lots of vendors and things to choose from. And a wide range of finds in everyone's budget!

I've been taking Bikram yoga here on and off for over a year. When I first started I too was concerned about how it seemed much stricter than the usual yoga I was accustomed to. But, after a few more classes I began to understand the class style and how to tune in and push myself beyond the feelings of heat and sweat. When I'm active in going to class I can go 5 months or more without seeing the chiropractor. It truly is the best thing from my muscles and bone alignments. If you can go in with an open mind you won't be disappointed.

My boys (who whine and complain after the novelty of sports wears off) have been super excited to go to Karate several times a week at Peck's TKD. Ms. Peck and all the instructors are wonderful with the kids and really make the classes fun. Free WiFi for parents and a monitor to view the instructions at all times.
