Washi Tape Craft Carousel

This little thrift store find said spice rack on the package...


 I don't cook and would barely know what to do

Navy Blue Maple Side Table

I went to the best garage sale the other day...
you know the ones where there was an old lady 
living there for her whole life and her family
just wants to clear the house...

Almost every vintage thing in the driveway was 
$1.00

Painting the Master Bathroom

Ughhhh is all I can say about this bathroom.
It had some awesome storage solutions...
but it needed a paint job in the worst way...
powdered makeup and hairspray 
destroyed the paint in this room!

Outdoor Coffee Table

I sat on my deck looking at the ugly black
wrought iron coffee table in front of me... 


I thought about how much I didn't like it and 
I decided to get up and do something about it right now!

Basement Laundry Room & Laundry Signs

I'm celebrating a new washer and dryer with hand-made
laundry signs... 


Every laundry room needs something to celebrate...
how about new wall art... a hand-made laundry sign...

For these signs I used my vinyl cutting machine and
in this demonstration I show how to use the vinyl 2 ways 
to make it cost effective by creating 2 signs from one cut...
