DIY: Faux Bamboo Moulding
I recently changed out the base cabinets of my office from IKEA Malms to new IKEA kitchen Sektion cabinets.  They are much deeper and offer a ton of flexibility with organization.  (I can do an entire post on them!) I also added a few homemade whiteboards u...

Weekend Project- DIY Upholstered Headboard with Nailhead Trim
I have been busy redoing the boys’ bedroom.  One of the biggest changes was getting rid of their old wooden beds and switching over to upholstered headboards. The old beds were very durable, but not that comfortable.  I can’t tell you how many times they’ve...

How to Design Your Own Stencil
I realized I've stenciled a ton of stuff on this blog.  I've even done tutorials on how to make complex pattern repeats.  I've just never done a basic post on how to design and make a stencil.  It is such an easy thing to do, and it allows you to quickly ad...

How to use a Paint Sprayer on Furniture
It's no secret that I can't resist painting something.  Whether it's reinventing a piece of furniture I already have or breathing new life into a found object, I just have to paint it!  We are currently in the midst of the boy's bathroom renovation and I fo...

Part 2: Starburst Tube Sculpture "not reals"
So yesterday I made a tubular brass sculpture using real brass.  It's not for the faint of heart... you need a soldering iron which can run you between 20-30 bucks, as well as a few other supplies.  Not to mention the soldering part is hard and gets freakin...

New Patterns
Winter is just ridiculous here.  Boston is buried. This is my house... My kids have had more snow and vacation days this past month than school days. I'm a cranky shell of a human and snow is a four letter word.  And I have developed an unhealthy relationsh...

Super Easy Snow Storm Project- DIY Wall Texture

Painted Faux Inlay Floor Border with Printable Template
I am a huge fan of painted floors.  They can transform a space with a big splash of color and pattern or simply add character by simulating an inlaid design.  I personally would paint my entire hardwood living area if it were up to me, but that would entail...

Brass Starburst Sculpture "for reals"
 I say "for reals" because I have only made these out of wooden skewers, not actual brass before. (see sculpture here and light fixture here ) I decided to go for the real thing for this one...  I have a client that saw this and loved it, but not the $$$$ a...
