A Tiny Table Goes Glam & We Have a Giveaway!

Feature Tiny Table

This little table is all dressed up in classic black and gold! But she wasn’t always this pretty. She’d been spray-painted silver a few years ago to go in my daughter’s bedroom. It was a hard few years for a tiny table, and she was covered with nail polish, glue and glitter, scratches and mystery […]

An Upholstered Wall Treatment (in less than an hour!)

Upholster a wall

I really wanted a nice dresser. And shortly before we moved into our current 1940’s bungalow, I had found one at an estate sale; so new the knobs still had plastic on them, and TEN drawers for me and dear hubby; big enough for everything we need to put in it! But it didn’t fit on […]

Repair a Foundation Corner

Corner pop feature

A Mason I am not. But when my Realtor hubby asked me to help him repair a foundation corner pop, I figured I could probably handle it. A “corner pop” is when the corner of a house’s foundation cracks, and pops off. This isn’t usually a structural issue, but it can cause a few problems. […]

A Christmas Chalkboard


A Chalkboard for Christmas I love the hand-lettered look of a chalkboard. They are just too cute, and there is so much you can do with them. Fortunately, Thanks to Picmonkey, Paint Shop Pro,  and white graphite paper, making a chalkboard is super-simple! The trick is tracing the design, rather than trying to draw it […]

Home Tour: The Kitchen & Breakfast Nook

Kitchen Tour

The Already Done Kitchen (and totally neglected Breakfast Nook) Apparently, the kitchen needed some work before we moved in, because it was already renovated when we got here, and there isn’t much I would change. I love the vintage look of the cabinets, I really love that they go all the way to the ceiling, […]

Ten Great Reasons to Live Smaller

Living Smaller Feature

I want to live in a tiny house. Or, to be more specific, I want to live in a “micro” house. A tiny house is loosely defined as 300 square feet or less, and I’d like to have about a 550 SF house.  And a shop big enough to accomodate my crafty business and DH’s […]
