• Coral Painted Dresser

    July 21, 2014

    I’m gonna let you in on a not so little secret. I’m cheap. That’s a large part of why I DIY. Why buy it (or pay someone to do it), when I can make/do it myself for less. I work hard for my money, so I have a hard time justifying spending a large amount…

And because it’s pretty much the biggest accomplishment of my life, I thought I’d document it forever on this great expanse, called the internet.

  • DIY Patio Table

    June 26, 2014

    One of the features that sold hubby and I on this house was the GIANT backyard. Plenty of space to entertain our friends and family. Coming from a small house with a tiny back patio (not a backyard), our furnishings for the space were rather sparse. Slowly, over the last 3 years, we’ve managed to…
