Do you like to change things up from time to time? It’s not a new revelation that I enjoy change, especially making things broken and worn new again. Sometimes I begin a little adventure because I have to and other times because I want to. Today is an “I want to” kinda project. You see, this old chest of drawers has been tucked in my sons’ closet for few years and I am relieving it of its hardworking status. It is now time for it to be come a glorified upcycled map cabinet. Yahoo!!
Can you see my vision for this? Well, no worries if not. I’m here to show you my nutty ways. mwahahaha…
When I say this thing was hardworking, I wasn’t kidding. I put this in my boys’ room hoping to help them stay clean and organized. Well…my good intentions went down the drain. All they did was
We may have a sloth’s pace when working on our home, but not by any decision of our own. The key is we get it done. Folks, we are so close to wrapping up our family room remodel that I’m brimming with excitement. For one, it will feel good to be done. Two, I need my house back! haha. Stuffing the contents of the biggest room into the other rooms of your home is not so fun. However, we are appreciating the home we do have. With that, I’m sharing how to update your fireplace insert with a painted fireplace tutorial. Here is said fireplace in question…
That beauty and this room has come a long way from where it started 15 years ago.
Do you ever have something that just sits in your home for what seems like forever, just waiting for you to give it the love it needs? Well, I may have more than one item hanging around here like that because we are remodeling, and it’s taking f.o.r.e.v.e.r. I sweetly whisper to them, “Don’t worry, your time will come.” If you think I am now nuts, just hang with me. You see this little gem below? It’s waited too long, so I’m having a piano bench makeover today. woot! (giveaway alert!)
Truth be told, it’s actually a bench from an organ we used to own. Once upon a time we were given a free organ and had a blast using it along with our antique upright grand piano you see above. The organ eventually
Oh what fun it is to be with friends! Today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday where my blogger gals and I get together to share our latest makeovers and creations with you to INSPIRE. What you see below is my focus of today’s post – you will see my friends’ posts in a bit. My good friend, Mandy, spotted this entire set on the curb and claimed them for me. Woot! Therefore, you are in for a dining set makeover.
I will be honest that when Mandy sent me the picture of the chairs that she had found asking me if I wanted them…I hesitated. Why? Well, if you’ve followed me for long, you know that I have undoubtedly sworn off
Ooh…do I have some fun for you today! You know I love a good furniture makeover, but when I get to share the fun with you, it’s even better. Check out this cutie below that spoke to my heart the minute I saw it. eep! Looks like it’s time for an updated bookcase makeover, right? (giveaway alert!)
When I spied this bookcase at the thrift store, I took note of how cute the lines were and knew that it had potential. It’s made of inexpensive pine and not an antique, so this bookcase is
Spring for me is the awakening of nature, a much-needed break from the cold winter days (which I have yet to have), and the ever-fun city spring cleanup. haha. I am serious! What could be more fun that looking for free things that can not only be saved from the dump, but turned into beautiful things, right? Take for instance this set of wooden louver doors. I instantly grabbed them up and am going to show you how they became an upcycled louver door shelf. (giveaway alert!)

My goal this year was to replenish my salvaged wood stash and boy did I score some awesome things. You can imagine my delight when I pulled up and saw these doors laying there. In my truck they went along with all the other fun goodies I’ve been showing you on social media.
Storage is something we all long for, but sometimes we lack it for obvious reasons. Maybe you have little closet space or just overall not a whole lotta room, but…you can add storage in places by getting creative. This worn out vintage Cosco serving cart caught my eye and I’m going to show you how it can make a BIG difference in a small way.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it doesn’t take much money to make your house your home. I’m a prime example of that. With our family of 8 we have to watch spending and creating storage is
Okay…I know I’m not alone. Everyone loves to have plenty of closet space, correct? Honest truth is pretty much no one wants to clean them. (yes, I’m pointing at you. tee hee) Today, I’m going to show you how to refresh, organize and get a deep down closet spring cleaning. Yes, it can be done AND even be fun. This is my closet “before” that is about to explode with dirty laundry and all!

When you look into your over-stuffed closet, you may think you’re looking at mission impossible. Honestly though it’s easy and goes faster than
Who doesn’t love a shortcut to a chore? We all have different tasks that need done on daily basis, and then there are those that we kinda keep pushing to the back-burner because, let’s face it…they’re no fun. I love a clean oven, but doing the cleaning is not one of my favorite things to do. However, having the right tools to get it done quickly, efficiently, and healthily are key. Remember my motto: #toolsoverjewels – oh yeah! I’m going to show you a chemical-free oven cleaning that is actually fun. Brace yourselves…hahaha.
My family of 8 is home 24/7 and we cook/bake our meals from scratch 3 times a day. We have installed a double oven in our kitchen remodel and it’s bliss to have that thing in tip-top shape. Our routine around here is I offer this job up to one of my older kids so they can
