How I Forced An Ikea Table To Turn Into A DIY FarmHouse Table (Photos)


    This basic black Ikea Bjurstra table was the bane of my existence. I’d walk into my kitchen and I’d see it, all black and annoying, with it’s scratched up surface from too many tussles with a Bey Blade and having one too many hot pots just plunked down on it.

How To Make DIY Deck Lights


I love me some solar lights. They light up the entire yard at night and I don’t have to string cords all over my yard to get them to work. After I spent $30 a single string of solar lights to hang in my tree (in my defense, they were stars and I love them), I decided it was time …

Living Room redo with annie sloan chalk paint

Living room redo with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Everywhere the light touches, I have painted. At least in my living room anyway. My living room used to be a dark, chocolate brown on the walls with dark, equally brown leather couches.

Landscaping ideas for backyards – Turning a soggy backyard into a garden oasis.

  Disclaimer: I am not a landscaper, but I was definitely born to be one. I come from a long line of ‘ladies from the prairies’ who have made landscaping or ‘fixing up the yard’ a way of life.
