A headboard can really finish off a bedroom. Whether it's something fun, unusual or just a focal point for the bed, headboards are a great DIY project because they aren't too hard to make! I pulled together this DIY wood headboard roundup to give you several ideas on how you can build one yourself!Read More
You know the piece.
The one that you find in an antique store. It looks amazing... on the outside. You go to pull a drawer only to find that it doesn't budge.
Hmm... you wiggle a bit, finally get one of the drawers to come out and find that the bottom of the drawer is duct taped in place.
So it needs a little more work than you had hoped, but you buy it anyway, because you can see it's going to be worth it.
That's the story with this piece, so I thought it was a good opportunity to continue our series on furniture repair. This time it's all about drawer repair.
Furniture Repair: How to Replace a Drawer Bottom
Step 1. Remove the existing drawer bottom (if there is one). Remove any extra nails, staples, splinters of wood etc. You should be left with a nice groove where the new bottom will fit.Read More
Today we're continuing our series on power tools! I'm the gal that usually asks for one for Christmas, and I always have a wish list of tools that I want to add to my collection. So, here we go, I'm bringing you my love of tools in a blog post!

Today is all about the hand held belt sander. I got my first one from my grandfather's tool collection after he passed away, and I admit it sat for quite a long time before I tried it. It's a bigger sander than the palm sander, so I was a little afraid of it. But there will come a project that you just need more power than your palm sander can give you - that's when it's good to know about a belt sander!Read More
In the last post I showed you our exterior makeover. What may not be immediately obvious in the photos above is that we replaced our shutters too. I feel like it's one of those details that's not super noticeable, but that makes a big difference overall. It's all in the little custom design choices.
Honestly, I never even thought about making my own shutters until I saw someone do it on Instagram. Not only are these farmhouse shutters super easy to make, they are very inexpensive!! Way cheaper than buying new shutters! That my friends is a DIY win!Read More
The weather has warmed up here in Western PA, and we are moving on with the house projects but this time we are taking it outside!
The exterior of our house is a yellowish color, with gold trim. It was one of the first things I said, "if we buy this house we have to paint it" - I meant inside AND out! I also wanted to try to have a little fun with the garage doors - giving them a faux wood finish.Read More
Hi there! Looking for a statement piece for your home?? This is it!! Giant wall clocks are pretty popular online - on a stair case wall, over a mantel, as part of a gallery wall - the problem is they can be pretty pricey - unless of course you make it yourself!!
I don't know about you, but I see these little round four top tables pretty often. This one in fact was found on the side of the road by a friend who couldn't resist rescuing it for me. They are a little to small for most families, so I thought I'd turn it into something completely different! Here's what I did!Read More
