Building a Garden Bench – Partial Tutorial

August 18, 2014 Building, Furniture and Decor, Garage, Tutorial 26

Yippy! People, I am so happy to be finally done with the latest building project! My darn perfectionist side kicked in and boy did it take forever to finish this project.

Yes, I have conversations with myself. As… Read more »

Well, I was not able to fully finish the latest building project (I am so close). The sanding, spackle, sanding, primer, sanding, paint, lightly sand and paint again, is taking longer than I thought.

Challenge Accepted!

August 4, 2014 Garage, Makeover 7

Yes, I am still here. My blogging track record this year has been…not much. It has been a tough and crazy year. All the house issues are almost done and sadly there was more that came up. The last thing that needs to get fixed is the master bath shower (which will more than likely be a complete demo) and replacing some drywall in the office and guest bedroom. Have… Read more »

Woo-Hoo! Everyone, I am super excited to show you how I did my own tile backsplash. It is crazy simple! But first, my apologies for only posting once a month. Lame, I know. The house is still a mess and there is stuff scattered in all the rooms. We have had roofing, siding, and drywall contractors here fixing all the problems we have had this past year. Sections of the… Read more »

Kitchen Update (Flooring, Paint and Outlets)

March 12, 2014 Dining Area, Kitchen 20

Hey, there! Folks, the kitchen is pretty much back together (for the most part). I have a couple of upper cabinets that still need to be cleaned, purged and organized, but it is coming along – even though it is in slow motion. Seriously, have you ever tried to work at super speed, only to have it feel like you are moving in slow motion? Having a playlist has helped… Read more »
