Chalkboard Window

When life gives you a discarded window, make a chalkboard. Makes perfect sense to me. This chalkboard was super easy to make. I had a lot of fun creating it and deciding what to write. My friends over at Plaid had sent me a few supplies for this project that were really great to work with. First, I cleaned the window pane and frame of my window. Then, I applied my first coat of FolkArt […]

Key Holder

My friend asked me to make him a key holder. He wanted something that would fit in the space between his counter and cabinets in his kitchen. We’re both so pleased with how it turned out! I had a pallet plaque leftover from my Marble Suncatcher project that was the perfect size for this project. Just like with my Marble Suncatcher, the first thing I did was haphazardly stain it using a dark wood stain. My friends […]

Starburst Mirror

If you’ve got a blank space on the wall and are on a tight budget, this Starburst Mirror project may be perfect for you. Although, its made out of popsicle sticks, I think its incredibly stylish. Plus, it can be customized to match any home. I really love the natural color of the wood, but it could also be stained a darker color or spray painted. Gold would be fantastic! For my project, I used […]

Candy Wrapper Cart

Save those Halloween candy wrappers! You’ll need them for this DIY cart. Luckily, I have a friend on the inside who scored me these Tootsie Roll Pop wrappers. This wheeled cart is perfect for Halloween, but with different styling can be used year round. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see the cart decked out this way. Ok, friends, I must admit this project is a little more complex and […]

Supplies: 5 – 3 Pack of Copper Scouring Pads 1- 3 Pack of Silver Scouring Pads Foam Wreath 2 Pack Rooster Kitchen Burner Cover (I used the smaller cover) Red/White Kitchen Towel Additional Supplies: Drill/small drill bit Hot Glue Gun/Sticks […]

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 […]
