Glittered Serving Tray

Hey, Gators! Happy May. I hope you’ve had a great month. I’m so excited to be sharing this colorful glittered serving tray I created using FolkArt Color Shift and Glitterific paints. Look at all that sparkle! If you’ve never used Color Shift or Glitterific paints, I highly recommend it. I love both products individually, but such great results can be created when used together. Here’s what the serving tray looked like before its makeover. It […]

Modern Rustic 3D Wood Wall Art using Mod Podge Ultra

Hey, Gators! Happy April. As promised, you’ll be able to find new projects here monthly. I’m super thrilled to be sharing this home decor project using Mod Podge Ultra with you. Disclosure: Some supplies have been provided by Plaid, and I have received compensation for this post. Project idea and opinions are my own. As you know, I love all things handmade. I’ve filled my home with items I have handcrafted. These one of a kind […]

Hey there, Gators!

Hello, friends! After a year of weekly MONDAYS WITH MARK projects and my break announcement, I wanted to do a little check in and let you know what I’ve been up to, share a few pictures and talk about future plans. Before that, I thought it’d be fun to do a quick photo recap of the previous year’s projects. I’m so proud of everything I created in that year! As I’ve said before, producing a creative project and […]

MONDAYS WITH MARK- One Year Anniversary!

Can you believe its been a year of MONDAYS WITH MARK? That’s 52 weeks of projects and then some! I am so proud of my accomplishments this last year. Producing a craft each week is no easy feat. This week, I sat down with my close friend Rick to reminisce about all things MONDAYS WITH MARK. Rick: I’ve enjoyed seeing a new project every Monday. I’m so impressed with your commitment. What are you most […]

Stenciled Pallet

I just can’t help myself with these pallet makeovers! A few weeks back, I found three small pallets in the alley. I couldn’t not take them, right? Although, I recently shared a pallet project it was time to get these off the back porch and art the hell of them. So, here we are. The other two are still in progress, but I’m super pleased with the look of this one. The end result turned out great, […]

Air Plant Display Frame

Air plants are such a unique species. They really deserve to be displayed in a way that is just as delightful as they are. That’s why I created this air plant display frame. It really draws your attention to their beauty. My friend gave me this discarded wood picture frame he found in an alley. It was perfect for this project. One’s trash is another’s treasure. I gave it a few coats of FolkArt Coastal […]

Rope Rug

I was in need of a small rug. So, in true DIY’er fashion, I made one. I love the bold look of it. It’s almost hypnotizing! You don’t need much to make this rug. Just lots of hot glue, 100 feet of polypropylene rope, a piece of felt (for the underside of the rug), scissors, a marker and spray adhesive. For the ten thousandth time, please forgive my dirty glue gun! Years of use! To […]

Tomato Cage Foot Stool

I was looking at my Tomato Cage Marbleized Side Table the other day and trying to think of other ways to use tomato cages unconventionally. Before creating my side table, I created a Plant Stand using a tomato cage. It dawned on me that if I cut the cage down to the second rung, it would be the perfect height for a foot stool! I’ve always wanted to make a foot stool. I’m beyond pleased with how it turned […]

Dollar Store Faux Wood Vase/Centerpiece

If you’re in need of a centerpiece for an upcoming dinner party or event thats stylish, but doesn’t break the bank, this arrangement may be just the thing. It’s very easy to put together. Everything for this centerpiece can be purchased at Dollar Tree except the fresh flowers. In store, you’ll want to pick up a few glass cylinders (varying heights), faux wood contact paper, a bag of moss and various rocks. I grabbed the […]
