DIY Cotton Wreath

I was rearranging and switching up a few decor items and had some cotton stems with no place to call home. So, I decided to use them to refresh our front door wreath for the season.  All materials I used I already had on hand.  But, they are very inexpensive.  I got the medium sized… Continue reading DIY Cotton Wreath

DIY Tapered Cedar Planter Boxes

This summer I was determined to start the process of adding more function and curb appeal to our front porch.  So in addition to the porch couch I built, I decided I wanted 2 big planter boxes to go on either side of our front door.  I wanted them before fall to use them for… Continue reading DIY Tapered Cedar Planter Boxes

My New Work Bench! 

I’ve been wanting an official work bench for a while now. What have I been using since I started my woodworking journey in January you ask? Oh, just 3 of our 6ft folding party tables we use when we have events at our home.  Not ideal, but they were the only thing I had that… Continue reading My New Work Bench!

Succulent Love

Succulents are one of my favorite plants to have around the house.  Unfortunately, I haven’t had much luck keeping them alive in the past. The main reason for this is because I’d never really knew how they like to be treated. I figured they were just like any other plant I’ve had in our home.… Continue reading Succulent Love

Outdoor Porch Couch/Bench DIY

My girls love to play outside (what children don’t, right?).  Since our front yard has more running room and openness than our backyard, they play in the front more often than not.  And since I (and/or my husband) have to be out there with them, I wanted our front porch to be a comfortable place… Continue reading Outdoor Porch Couch/Bench DIY

Planting and Caring for Succulents

I tried my luck with succulents before and, well, let’s just say I wasn’t so lucky…r.i.p. to those sweet babies. I was determined to get it right this time. So, I did my research on many  blogs, websites, and any info I could find about the proper way to plant and care for succulents.  Almost… Continue reading Planting and Caring for Succulents

Succulent Planter Boxes

After I built my wooden window cornices for our kitchen nook, I had plenty of scrap wood leftover.  I used some of it to build another cornice for my baby girl’s nursery and more to build a couple of planter boxes for my succulents.   I mirrored the planter boxes I made for my oldest… Continue reading Succulent Planter Boxes

Wooden Window Cornices Upgrade

When we bought our home, I thought we were so lucky because all of the windows had some kind of window treatment already.  Although they were definitely not my taste, I was satisfied because 1. the house looked a little decorated and not just an empty space 2. I didn’t have to tap into my… Continue reading Wooden Window Cornices Upgrade

Wooden You Appreciate?

My daughter’s kindergarten teachers are so loving, helpful and definitely go above and beyond, not only for my baby but for all of the students in their class.  I knew for Teacher Appreciation Week I wanted to do something more than just buy them a gift and a card.  And with this new woodworking hobby,… Continue reading Wooden You Appreciate?

Shapely Wall Shelves

These shelves are the product of my insomnia.  I put my babies to bed one night and couldn’t fall asleep.  So I got up, went into the garage, put some scrap wood 2x4s that I had left over to work!  4 days (nights) of insomnia later, these babies were born!  I originally built just the small… Continue reading Shapely Wall Shelves
