My entryway has been a room I have struggled with for quite some time. It just never seemed to function the way I wanted it to; there was never enough storage, the layout always seemed awkward and it was dark and gloomy (The gloom could have been caused by the burgundy paint, lol...I went through … Continue reading Entryway Up-Cycle
This has been one of the most challenging and most rewarding projects I have taken on to date. I turned an old entertainment center into a play kitchen for my granddaughter. (Thank you Pinterest for the inspiration!) I had been gathering supplies for quite some time and I finally found a suitable entertainment center at … Continue reading Kid Kitchen Up-cycle
I thought I'd take a few moments on this snowy Monday to share my most recent Christmas decor project. I live in an old farmhouse and I have always loved the pictures of houses where there is a wreath in every window. However, I do not like the idea of spending money on all those … Continue reading Outdoor Christmas Wreaths
I am very fond of the current farmhouse decor trend, especially all the Christmas stuff. (I mean I do live in a farmhouse, so...) I have seen vintage inspired tree farm signs EVERYWHERE and I decided I wanted to make one of my own so I could personalize it. And, as we all know, I … Continue reading Christmas Tree Farm Sign

I have been working on some home redecorating projects and some smaller projects that I need to write about soon. In next week, I should have my entryway project finished and I'll be able … Continue reading In The Works
Life has been busy. I started a new job and am studying for certification exams; it hasn't left much time for creating or writing. But today I got inspired. My daughter got married in May and like most newlyweds, she doesn't have many Christmas decorations and she loves Christmas...so I made her some. The letters … Continue reading Feeling inspired
So this concussion business has really slowed down every single part of my life, so I'm pretty pumped that I finally finished a project. I had to do it in small chunks because of the fatigue and aggravating brain issues I've been experiencing but I'm happy with the end result. So here is the before: … Continue reading A Finished Product!
I have been busy collecting items to redo and reinvent. I'm excited to get started and I wanted to give you a little peek at the items i will be attacking soon. There are plenty more in the works, but I'll save those for later.
I know, beginning to start, it doesn't sound like it makes sense; but it really does. I have begun to do the things I need to do in order to start my upcycling and repurposing shenanigans. Space I have claimed a space in my house to use for my projects and it is off limits … Continue reading Beginning To Start
