Recently I made some Christmas tree ornaments out of wood slices to send to friends and family. They’re pretty easy to make, but they do take some time! Here’s what I used: Ornament Materials: -Screw eyes -Twine -Wood Slices (sanded) -Paint markers, ink pens, acrylic paint and brushes -Wood glue (optional) Equipment Used (for ornaments): -Drill…

Home Fitness equipment is not very pleasing on the eye, it’s like a big, black vortex, sucking the beauty out of whatever room it is in (unless you specifically have a room for that purpose, then that is fine).  We have a treadmill that I try to use on a regular basis and it dwells…

I have been burning a lot of candles recently in light of Diamond Candle excitement ;)  This is what I learned recently: “tunneling,” is when the wax on the sides of the candle don’t melt with the middle part of the candle, so it stays higher on the sides, while the middle melts down.   I…

  I can’t even express how much I love multi-use items! I had been wanting some clear swing top glass bottles for a while now and I just couldn’t bring myself to pay even $3 for 1 bottle (that’s cheap, I know).  Imagine my elation when I came upon these French sparkling lemonades at Aldi…

HEY YO! I am super excited about the Spring and the plans for our yard. I don’t remember if I ever wrote about our pallet veggie boxes, but we’ve had them for a while now and wanted to put a nicer facade/hold the dirt in without using garbage bags! Below is how they have looked…

I love checkered floors (on a diagonal), especially in kitchens and this was my inspiration for painting the runner rug for my kitchen. I have wanted a runner for the kitchen for awhile now and I didn’t want to have a bunch of smaller rugs littering the floor.  I found an indoor/outdoor jute rug on…

***From March 9, 2010*** This was a cool project that I decided to do based on the SabbeSpot posting of the chevron wall she completed at her residence. Although I originally wanted large mirrors on that wall to enlarge and lighten the space, I had to re-think based on my budget. Enter creativity. Since I…

The original dining room plan did not include a china hutch, but after some thorough “Craigslisting” to find to new dining chairs (new to me), the ones I chose so happened to come with a table and a hutch (all for $60, by the way….TOTAL steal!). So enter “hutch,” which I welcomed with open arms,…

I am always on the lookout for large plant holders that are inexpensive, I love large scale, but I do not like large costs.  One sunny, Florida day, I happen to be shopping at Aldi and saw these large plastic beverage tubs.  They had little handles on each side and I thought they looked nice…

I DID IT!  After spying on some delicious tablecloths last week, I finally finished making a Spring-y/Summer-y tablecloth of my own;)  It was pretty straightforward, but it is not simply just paint it and your done.  Because we’re dealing with fabric, it needed to be pre-washed and also after painting, it needed to sit for…

Finished ottoman detail

How To: I posted a couple of weeks ago about burlap and that was a pre-cursor to this very post!  Burlap is so versatile and a pretty inexpensive fabric that it just seemed like the most logical choice for my ottoman cover.  Before this, I had quickly sewn together brown remnant fabric I had on…

No Sew Roman Shades!   Saw this Tutorial over at 365 Days to Simplicity today and I had to share ;)  Hopefully before the summer, I will make a roman shade like this to go in our guest bathroom.  A mini blind is converted into a roman shade using fabric, scissors, hot glue and fabric…

So if you don’t know already, I am in love with the store Anthropologie….thankfully there is one at the Millenia Mall in Orlando, Florida.  One of my clients has some mermaid paraphernalia and wanted her bathroom to have that theme.  Side note: I am very picky about “themed” rooms; the concept of having a themed…
