Honeycomb Shelves – Eco Friendly Plywood

A friend recently asked if we could build a few of these honeycombs for her. It was a fun side project. We used eco-friendly plywood so there is no formaldehyde in the ply. About these ads

Chalkboard Paint – Fridge

In my opinion one of the easiest beginner DIY projects is painting something with chalkboard paint. We remodeled our kitchen and a new fridge was not in the budget. The cream color did not go with the new upgraded kitchen, so I opted for chalkboard paint. A can of paint costs around $13 depending on […]


$0 Chevron Deer Head Wall Art

So, I am on a bit of a $0 project kick lately! The landing of our stairs was really in need of something impactful. The pillows from the couch and the top of the stair landing were my color inspiration. I wanted to join the two ares, so I had to incorporate the color and […]


DIY Pallet Wood Christmas Tree for $0

Our front yard was in need of something festive. I had a pile of pallet wood scraps in that back yard and a string of lights from last year. This was a quick ten minutes project that was exactly what the front yard needed!


DIY Frosted Acrylic House Numbers

As you all know by now I do not like spending money on projects! We moved into our house in October. The first thing I did was to set aside all the random items with potential that were left behind by the previous owner. The basement had a shelving system made with 5 acrylic shelves. […]


Pottery Barn Hack ~ Benches

I have always been a fan of the Pottery Barn Rustic Bench. I have not always been a fan of the price tag. $149 for the small bench and $249 for the large bench was a bit more than I was comfortable spending on a piece of accent furniture. Luckily, Ana White had building plans for the Pottery Barn […]

IKEA Kivik Couch Update

We have had our IKEA Kivik couch for a year, and decided it was time to give it a new look. For only $30 we were able to give the couch a much more modern look. IKEA sells legs intended for bookshelves and cabinets. We added them to the couch and are very happy with […]

Lamp Hack Vase

Lamp Hack

Our new porch was begging for a bit more curb appeal. I looked around the house and gathered up a few items that I felt could use a face lift. I found an old lamp and decided to take it apart. I created a vase by re-attaching the base of the lamp to the top. […]

DIY Sphere Table Lamp Final

DIY Sphere Lamp

I have always loved the modern look of a sphere lamp. The price tag has always been another story. Often times they retail for over $200. The chrome base sphere lamp shown below retails for $238. I reused parts from a ceiling fan I recently removed from the bedroom. I had a small piece of […]
