Metal Card Catalog Makeover

If you have been following along on my Instagram Stories then you know that we have been slowly converting the garage attic into a fort for my boys. A place to hang out with each other and their friends. The main thing my youngest 2 boys requested was a place to store their treasures. Rocks, […]

Under Bed Storage Drawers

When I shared the reveal of the bedroom I decorated for my nephew, there was one unfinished project that didn’t make it in that post. Even though this bedroom has two large closets, you can never have enough storage, right? These under bed storage drawers give even more storage to this shared space! This project […]

DIY Fold Down Desk

It’s been a hot second since I posted on the blog and I am long overdue for a post on the DIY fold down desk in the room I did for my nephew. It is a smallish room that is sometimes shared with his older brother so I needed to maximize the space. A fold […]

Top 10 Posts of 2019!

I blame in on the time of year and all the sickness that has been making the rounds, but I was looking around at our house and feeling discouraged at all that we still need to get done. Especially our basement. To me, progress equals success. As I sat down to prepare to write this […]

DIY Leather Ornaments

If you are a regular reader here, you know that last year we got a new sofa and I skinned the old one. We have been using the leather for all sorts of projects from moccasins, to pillows, leather tab curtains, to now, ornaments! It has been fun to repurpose the leather into new things. […]

DIY Woven Leather Pillow

Last year when we got a new sofa, I skinned the old one and put the leather in a tote. My boys have had fun making a ton of leather projects including their own moccasins. I decided it was time for me to make a project with some of the leather scraps. I made leather […]

DIY Resin Drawer Knobs

I have an obsession with playing around with resin. I am not sure what it is about it that is so fascinating, but I just love it! In the past I made some leaf resin magnets for our fridge. They are still on there and I smile every time I open the fridge and see […]

Clay Head Planter

This project has literally been on my to-do list for 2 years. I kept putting it off because it was a smaller project and not really a need. I also have never sculpted a face and was hesitant to try. Even though I wanted it to be whimsical, and it didn’t need to be anatomically […]
