I bought the materials to make this headboard months ago. So I guess it's only fitting that when I actually put my mind to do it that it only took me a day.  I did work for about 7 hours with a lunch break in between which seems like a marathon project but ...

Pinwheel Shorts Free Pattern
I'm so ready for summer. Walking barefoot. Tee shirts. Tank tops. And SHORTS! Just like uncomfortable jeans, there are uncomfortable shorts. The kind that hurt your lady parts. Sorry to be blunt but you know what I mean! I like wearing elastic, loose-legged...

Finally AFFORDABLE IKEA sofa slipcovers
Our IKEA Karlstad sectional had seen better days. The slipcover I once loved was embarrassingly filthy and no amount of washing would help it recover. It had just met one too many chocolate milk stains as well as an unfortunate bleaching pen incident. Besid...

IKEA Karlstad Footstool Ottoman Free Pattern
I love IKEA. I love to hack IKEA. I also rarely throw away a piece of IKEA furniture just because the slipcover is dingy. Recently IKEA has begun to phase out the Karlstad collection. I guess it's inevitable. All good things must come to an end. But that's ...
