Tom’s Room Makeover: Transforming the Garage into a Music Room & Hangout

We have this pretty cool space in our garage. Fortunately it’s up in the rafters so it doesn’t take up any square footage (floor space) in the garage. When we moved in, the space was set up like a workshop. It had a big oversized work bench and shop lighting. Although functional (electricity, heat, running […]

How To Make Junk Cool: Upcycled Coat Rack

With all the projects I have been making for the shop, Holly and I thought it would be fun to host a couple series in 2017. One being “How to Make Junk Cool” and the other “Before and Afters”. With dresser makeovers and chair upholstering, a tutorial seems redundant and unnecessary, but it’s still fun […]

DIY Painted Outdoor Rug

I searched high and low for a rug that I liked. I didn’t even see one outside of my price range that called my name. So, I took matters into my own hands and decided I’d create something I would like…and for a fraction of the cost. I purchased a plain dark grey outdoor rug […]

DIY Pallet Sign

At my house, you’ll see a trend…we like to incorporate the word “hope” into our decor. Like many projects, I started this project with no specific details in mind; except that I knew I wanted a pallet sign. I had a pallet that I took apart and decided to just start and see what would […]

Birdhouse Makeover With My Son

My 3 year old son just decided that GREEN is his favorite color. I think it’s the cutest thing, since this is a FIRST…he’s never had a “favorite color” before. He points out everything that is green and says “I like that color, green is my favorite color”. ******************************* When we purchased our home I […]

My Dream Coffee Bar…Comes True!

I purchased a late 1960’s home just over a year ago. Here is the BEFORE picture (on a good day). The original built-in cupboards and shelving unit gave away the age of the house, it was hideous (in my opinion), and kind of and awkward orange-ish wood color. The space was not easy for me […]

Holly’s Dining Room Makeover: Making Your Accessories Work

I’ve been working on my dining room and I found several fun decorations for a featured wall; however, I just needed a couple more items and didn’t want to spend the money for them. I ended up spotting an old colander that was starting to rust and the paint was chipping off. So, I really […]

Add A Custom Saying To Your Project…It’s EASY!

I love the idea of customizing a space with a saying. ***** Since I didn’t have a fancy machine to cut vinyl letters for me, my handwriting isn’t very nice, and I just wasn’t able to buy the saying I wanted pre-made… I had to come up with a way to nicely trace words on […]
