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.

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?!

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!

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.

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.

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!
