quilt step 11

Alright, you’ve seen the quilt, now it’s time to find out how you can do it yourself! The total cost was just under $50. I used an old sheet set for the backing and border, which really helped offset fabric costs. If you don’t have one to use (or are uncomfortable thrifting some) it will …

Photo Keychains: A How-To

$10 Book Tower

book tower 7

So, I’m kind of a book fiend. Nothing beats a sunny afternoon on a porch swing with a good book. I love my Nook when it comes to reading “fluff”. You know, the stuff you read maybe once or twice and then have to take to the resale shop. But when it comes to my …

WordPress Tutorial: Thumbnail Archives

Picture 10

So a lot of folks blog these days. It’s no secret that WordPress is a powerful platform for building websites, especially blogs (duh!)

So yesterday when I posted about my awesome laundry hutch, I showed some pictures of my faux capiz shell screen I made to hide the appliance hardware.

Have you seen chunky wooden tealight votive centerpieces? You can find them on Esty, as well as places like Pottery Barn catalogs and gift shops. I made a few of these for Christmas presents last year, but none of this size or with a distressed finish. All you need to do it are a few …

I was using an IKEA Grono table lamp as a nightlight of sorts in the nursery for when I have to get up for late-night feedings. I had it perched on the window sill next to the trundle bed we had set up, and during a particularly vigorous romp with our heeler, the lamp shattered. …

Sleeping Mask: A How-To

IMG_4560

Yesterday was a rough day. I woke up after barely sleeping at all because of a horrible migraine that just wouldn’t quit. I had one last month, and not only could I not kick it after two days, it sent me into premature labor! I was kind of hoping this meant I’d start contracting again, …

Rustic Cooler: A How-To

step14

I’m smitten with rustic coolers. If you’re in the Southwest region, you’ve probably seen them at HEB or Cabelas, or pretty much any hardware store. They’re just awesome! Sadly, they retail from $100 and up (like this $279 beauty from Cunningham Living) and it wasn’t really in our budget to buy one. Yet when my …

Outdoor Tiled Table: A How-To

Whew! It’s finished. This 3-day marathon build definitely tried my limits as a third-trimester giant preggo.

The square tiles are from my parents’ old outdoor kitchen which …
