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…Continue reading Patio Set Makeover

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.…Continue reading Pallet Art

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…Continue reading Shark Wreath

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…Continue reading Light Fixture Cover Vases

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…Continue reading GROW Garden Sign

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…Continue reading Terra Cotta Bird Feeder

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…Continue reading DIY Bird Bath

Faux Flamingo Taxidermy

I had a few leftover flamingos from my flamingo hanging lamp project. When life hands you plastic flamingos, you make faux taxidermy. Well, thats what I did at least! Besides being completely fabulous, this flamingo wall art could be put to practical use. It would make a great necklace or hat holder. In the kitchen, it’s the perfect spot for a hand towel. If you think this fellow is cute, scroll down to see his extremely sophisticated…Continue reading Faux Flamingo Taxidermy

Dollar Store Succulent Wreath

Succulent decor is so in right now, but can come with a hefty price tag. I’ve seen some faux succulent wreaths online selling for over $100! Would you believe me if I told you that I made this wreath for $26 (plus taxes, of course)?! How? Because, all of the items used came from Dollar Tree. Yes, they sell succulents and in order to make this wreath you’ll need a case of them. I recommend ordering them…Continue reading Dollar Store Succulent Wreath

Dollar Store Flamingo Hanging Lamp

It turns out that I have a thing for pink plastic flamingos. My love for them goes deeper than I imagined and this flamingo hanging lamp project confirms it. I should have seen the signs. I mean, I do have a life-size one in my home year round and I did throw a flamingo themed party once. Really, whats not to love? They’re pink and kitschy as hell. This lamp though is flamingo perfection. Ok, to make…Continue reading Dollar Store Flamingo Hanging Lamp
