I’ve got lots of photos to share but I also put together a fun little video that shows the 4 month remodel process condensed into about 2 minutes.  It {Read More}

Crackled Paint Product Review: Valspar Crackle Glaze

Chippy and crackled paint finishes are very popular right now – especially when the finish comes from natural age and wear, but sometimes you’ve just gotta fake it, if you want to make something that looks old.   Since I was impressed with Valspar’s chalky paint (read my review here), I decided I would test and review Valspar Weathered Crackle Glaze and share my findings with you, along with some comparisons to other products that give a crackled paint finish.

The Song that Never Ends

  Remember the song that never ends? Well, the remodel in my entryway goes something like that. This is the remodel that never ends, yes, it goes on and on my friends. A couple   started doing it not knowing what they does (hey, I needed it to rhyme!) but they’ll continue remodeling forever just because, This is the remodel that never ends…. You get the idea right?

Repurpose a Paint Can into Hanging Flower Holder

Repurpose a Paint Can: A few days ago, my husband and I were walking around Lowes, and I spotted empty paint cans that could be purchased, and it jogged my memory that I had one out in my workshop I could repurpose.  I’ve had it for several years, and don’t even remember where I bought it.

Drop Cloth Curtains for My Entryway: No-Sew Version

No Sew Drop Cloth Curtains Happy New Year everyone! I ushered in the new year at a local fun spot (roller skating, laser tag, etc.) where my daughter wa working, and m teenage son was attending the New Year’s party.  It was chaotic and noisy with over 400 kids there, but I really didn’t mind at all. I’m not sure whether to call today’s project the last one of 2015, or the first one of 2016, but I haven’t decided what window {Read More}
