Chair Makeover

Chair Makeover

This Chair Makeover is a quick turn-around project you can do in a day… and if you’re like me, at a cost of only $5. Let me start by saying the chair was given to me by a dear friend who was downsizing and getting rid of things, and she thought I might be able to do something with it. The chair had seen many years and was well-worn, and I thought it was darling. Continue Reading →

Wood Slice Ornaments

Wood Slice OrnamentsThese Wood Slice Ornaments are adding just the right decorative touch to my Woodsy Christmas this year, as I tried to avoid the usual tinsel, in lieu of a more “earthy vibe.”  Hand-painted and perfectly imperfect, they came not from the store, but from a tree that, up until last spring, was in our backyard.  When we were forced to take it down, I saved a piece of the stump and a couple of giant branches.  That gave me more than enough material for this year’s Christmas craft project.

Accent Table Makeover

This Accent Table Makeover is just the latest in my list of quick turnaround projects.  It began the way so many of my projects do… with a trip to the thrift store.  It was there that I found this sweet little table just sitting there with only a $12.99 price tag stuck on top.  I absolutely did not need it, but somehow it wound up in my shopping basket anyway!  I had visions of it painted an airy mint green, with soft pink, hand-painted roses calling attention to the rounded scallops and detailed leg carvings.  Those visions became reality and this video tutorial shows you every step of the process:

Wedding Signs

wedding signs

Love is in the air, and these Wedding Signs are proof!  They’re my small contribution to one of my favorite couple’s Big Day.  Their wedding is one I’ll most certainly remember for the rest of my life, and not because of the gorgeous aesthetic, but for the way they put God at the center of it all.  It was overwhelming, and meaningful, and…. I could go on and on about it.  But I know this blog is about the Wedding Signs, so read on, see lots more pictures, and get inspired.  There’s no reason you can’t make some personalized signs for an upcoming event!

Paint Concrete to Look Like Slate

Paint Concrete

When you live in Arizona, like I do, the harsh sun can cause extensive damage and fading to anything you leave outdoors.  And, in our case, the backyard concrete that had been stamped to look like slate had become quite an eyesore.  Not only was it discolored, there were permanent rings of water damage caused by the overflow from sprinklers and a drip system to our plants.  It was downright ugly…and it was time for a backyard makeover.  Since my contribution was the painting, I thought I’d share with you How to Paint Concrete to Look Like Slate.
