Golden Star with String Lights

Gold is the color that everyone is in love with and so am I! If I could, I would paint everything in gold! I’ve been waiting to embellish my string light in my living. You might be wondering why I have them now that Christmas is long gone and the reason is additional lighting and I enjoy the warmth they give to the room when all the light are turned off. I am actually thinking of adding some to my baby girl’s rooms but that’s a craft project for another day.

Another book folding origami tutorial

Its book folding Wednesday and I have another tutorial for you. I found a lovely store that sells books for $1! Its great especially since I make so many book folding tutorials and I did run out of book to use from my personal library. So if you don’t have any books to use for your book folding try to find a local store or even a library that sells their used books. I know that my local library at times sell brand new books at time for only .25 cents! You can’t go wrong with that, right?!

Side table magazine crate table and no power tools needed

I have been obsessed with crates lately, I just love how many different functions they have in a home. I have them in almost every room in my home. I wanted to make one crate portable in which I can switch around in my home and that is just what I did. No power tools needed for this portable magazine holder stained crate. It can even be used as a side table to keep cute little things. The other great thing is that you don’t have to make the crate just purchase it from your local craft store, I even noticed that Walmart has wooden crates!

Repurposing a boy dresser

I have had this dresser for the past three years with the intention of re-staining it to match my son's bed however, it never happened. One day I just saw it and decided right there and then that I was going to paint it! I did not want to mess with a sander and with strong odor of stains. I went ahead and got my paint out and went to work.

Recap of upholstering dinning room chairs

I have and oldie but goodie makeover which I am still amazed that I could pull off! All of course with much help of my mother in-law. Who would have thought that at times the best way to learn is to just take the leap of faith and rip off the fabric of a chair and figure out how to put it pack together again.

You have no idea how much I have been hating my dinning room chairs. They have gone through a lot with me. They have been around for about seven years and over six moves with three being states moves. Lets not forget also having a baby. It a new year and  I wanted to bring some color to my home and lighten things up.

Industrial Wooden Spool Makeover

I’ve waiting to get my hands on industrial wooden spool for a while and I never thought I was going to find one. Until one day on my way to get my hubby at work and a saw it! I could not believe my eyes and I begged my hubby for an entire day and he finally caved in and got them in the car for me.  They sat in my garage for a couple of month and I wondered what would be the perfect project I would with it? It finally came to me why not a bookshelf for my kiddos for their room!
