Tomato Cage Marbleized Side Table

If you’re in need of a colorful side table, this is the project for you! I’m in love with how it turned out. In addition to being stylish, it’s cost conscious too. The pine round top was under $7 and the base of the table is a tomato cage! Wouldn’t two of these be great as bedside tables? This was my first time marbling. It was so much fun and the results are incredible. Supplies: […]

Patio Set Makeover

My friends at Plaid sent me some samples of their FolkArt Outdoor acrylic paints and some awesome stencil sets. When they arrived, I knew exactly what I was going to use them for. This 3 piece patio set!! It was definitely in need of an upgrade. WOW! Upgrade indeed!!! I’m in love with how this set turned out! I used three different colors on the set. I applied Lawn on the outer portions of the chairs and the slats […]

Pallet Art

I have a small porch outside my back door. The area doesn’t get much natural light. This is how it has looked until I spruced it up this week. Pretty depressing, huh? This space desperately needed some color. So, I made this giant piece of colorful art on a pallet to solve the issue! I think it’s the perfect solution for this once drab area. I added a few additional pieces I had on hand. […]

Shark Wreath

It’s that time of a year again! What time? SHARK WEEK on the Discovery Channel! To celebrate, I decided to craft up this super fun shark wreath. Believe it or not, this fellow is constructed from two foam noodle boards and a pool noodle that I picked up at Dollar Tree. He’s absolutely perfect for Shark Week, but he’d be great at a themed birthday party or just making a splash on the front door […]

Light Fixture Cover Vases

It’s always fun to repurpose an item intended for one use in another way. With a little paint, light fixture covers can be transformed into eye catching floral vases. I found this ornate light fixture cover about a month ago at my local thrift store. I picked up the globe on the left at the same thrift store last week. I purchased the one on the right at a small hardware store for just over […]

GROW Garden Sign

Sometimes we all need a little encouragement. I’m definitley encouraging my garden to GROW with this DIY wooden letter sign. It’s large and in charge and makes a bold statement in the yard. My friends over at Plaid sent me these 18in wooden letters along with some wonderful multi-surface acrylic paints to use on this project. These letters exceeded my expectations upon arrival. They come in four different styles and are/will be available for purchase at Walmart […]

Terra Cotta Bird Feeder

If you give the birds a DIY Bird Bath, they’ll probably ask for a handmade bird feeder. Well, thats what happened at my place and I was happy to oblige. The first thing I did was drill three small holes, that formed the shape of a triangle, into the sides of a terra cotta saucer. Make sure the holes are below the lip of the saucer. Then, I painted the inside and outer top portion of […]

DIY Bird Bath

I recently planted a quaint flower garden in my backyard. I knew from the start that I wanted a spot for my feathered friends. I’ve been looking at a lot of gorgeous bird baths online, but in my true fashion, I decided to DIY my own. I’m so happy I did! I’m thrilled how it turned out and it looks perfect next to my terra cotta pot wind chime. I found this old lamp at […]
