Framed Chalkboard The framed chalkboard project came together with the help of the JTS (aka hubby, aka Junktion Technical Specialist). We work pretty well together most of the time. The frame was a dingy white but a little work took care of that. No painting required. The vintage wood mirror holder came from my favorite… [Read More]
How To Make A Yarn Seat Cover You guys! I love the yarn seat cover I made for our sad little bar stool. I don’t usually work with yarn and after this project I’m asking myself “Why Not??” I just can’t stop running my hands over the seat cover. It’s sooooo soft. Can you look… [Read More]

Wait until you guys see the concrete tray I made. I told you it was going to be a doozy …and it is. I added terra cotta color to the cement and sisal rope handles for extra pizzazz. I love to spice things up.

Don’t throw away those metal coffee cans. You can make a glam coffee can flower vase just like mine. The simple Springtime project took less than 90 minutes and it brought two of my favorite things together, paint and recycling.
*This post is sponsored by The Home Depot. Have you ever worked with concrete? I’m not talking about a giant project like pouring a driveway. I’m talking small as in a concrete tray.
