I am so excited for how this project turned out! I have a plan this school year, but it requires a huge space that I can write and change each week. We have a blank space on the wall and I knew a huge chalkboard would be perfect. The whole project cost me about $60…

I really hate when you have something that is odd, bulky, and in the way. Our pool cues were one of these things in our house. We need to have them handy but I wanted them to look classy too. My hubs and I hit the scrap pile to build something to hold them and…

After I finished my bench (you can see the tutorial here) I was so excited with how much it freshened up our entry that I wanted to make a new Welcome sign. I aim for our house to be a place where people feel welcome and leave feeling better than they did when they came. I…

I couldn’t help myself I wanted to create some St Patrick’s Day prints for my frames. This one is my favorite! I displayed it on our mantle. I also wanted a subtle simple shamrock: This cute Lucky print ended up on my desk: Can you see I started getting carried away here How about 3…
