DIY Backyard Mosaic Fire Pit

I really love my house, but my favorite part has to be my backyard. It’s truly my Florida oasis. Before summer kicked into full gear we replaced the old back deck with a new BRIGHT GREEN deck. (Check out my Florida Backyard Reveal to see how it turned out.) It was a good start to […]

Easy Custom Curtains

My husband and I recently moved to an old home with lots of character and charm, including  two small crank windows on either side of the fireplace.  Wanting to “dress up” these windows without having to shop for the right sized curtains, I decided to just trim the full length curtains that I already had. I’ll admit, […]

Hanging Kitchen Herb Garden

This beautiful hanging garden is our solution to for an indoor herb garden. I love our house and we get GREAT sunlight in the windows, but there is no counter space reasonable for an herb garden, where they would get enough sun. Also, who wants to give up counter space? To create the hanging garden: […]

DIY Showoff – Flea Market Bread Box Up-Cycle

So before the move, I found this old, fake wood breadbox at the flea market for $5. Pretty solid box, but it had a gross sticker on he front, peeling off, and some nasty glue residue. There were also spots where the veneer was scratched or rubbing away. In general, it look kind of dirty […]

To make this planter I first painted the pots in bright colors that pop with a very vibrant modern pattern. Two of the smaller planters were painted to look like the polka dot mushrooms, while […]
