Once again, I'm amazed at what a little paint can do. This little antique painted chair looks like it's been this way for many years.  And the stencil just gives it that finishing touch. It goes perfect with my farmhouse bathroom and that is where it will s...

I’ve had these bar stools for over a year now and have
looked at them everyday thinking, “I should really redo those bar stools this

here.  As long as it’s cheap and ends up

My Valentine's Day DIY Wreath
Back before I had this blog -- and waay before I did anything DIY -- I never had wreaths.  They just seemed like a waste of money.  Fast forward a few years -- and I still think they are a waste of money.  They are almost free if you make them AND much more...

Children's Chore Chart - Using Bottle Caps
For as long as I can remember, I've struggled with having an efficient chore chart for my daughter, Devyn.  I've tried everything from popsicle sticks in a jar to hand written charts.  But they just didn't stick because a) they weren't visible enough or b) ...

Window Treatments On A Budget
Well, I'm home from work today with the kiddo.  It is supposed to get down to -36 degrees with the wind chill.  The hubby braved it....I hope he makes it home ok tonight.  He has a 45 minute drive.   Anyhow.... One of my recent projects has been our master ...
