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 […]

Foil Confetti Cake Topper

I love confetti. It's true. Always have and probably always will. When I was little, my Grandma took me to see Aladdin on Ice and there was a big confetti cannon blast at the end. I'm pretty sure that is the exact moment I fell in love. I've seen these DIY confetti cake toppers a few places, but I just love them and thought I'd craft up some of my own to share. Supplies: Hot […]

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 […]

Concrete Castles

I love filling random molds with concrete. My Concrete Garden Orb and Flower Stepping Stones solidify that. I have been wanting to fill sand castle molds with concrete for awhile now. When I saw a beach set combo package with these smaller versions in it at my local convenience store, I knew it was time. I love how the concrete castles look displayed in this oversized platter. I added colored sand, tea light candles and shells I picked up […]
