32 Ikea Hacks

32 Ikea Hacks from SewWoodsy.com

By now you guys know that we love to use items from Ikea and make them our own. It first started with our Tulsta Chair that we reupholstered followed by the DIY Trumeau Floor Mirror, and then we found our media stand on the side of the road and decided to give it a little "hack". Just last week, we took the MARIT placemat and turned it into a placemat board games that is reversible and was made for less than $5! … [Read more...]

{Reader Made} Bean Bag Toss

bean bag toss

Last week, we received an email from a reader of ours, Walter. Walter and his wife made a bean bag toss game for their son-in-law as a birthday gift. They originally purchased a set in the stores (of course made in China). They were completely dissatisfied with the quality and returned the game. Ultimately, opting to make their own! They used our Bean Bag Toss tutorial.  Walt and his wife, stepped it up a notch and downloaded game rules which they printed and laminated. They also purchased … [Read more...]

The day has finally arrived--we are in route to the Haven Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. I remember, buying our tickets, last August--very unsure and not knowing what we would be doing June of 2012. I took a risk and invested the money in our conference tickets. I'm so glad I did--because they've been sold out for the past few months now. All of the sessions sound amazing, and Mr. Woodsy and I have pretty much decided to divide and conquer. I would love to sit in a session with him, but I don't … [Read more...]

Happy Monday. T-minus 9 days until Haven. We are both starting to burst at the seams with excitement! We had a super productive weekend. Dressers are so dang close to being completed its not even funny. I hope to share our painting/antiquing process tomorrow. We also got to mix a few fun things into our weekend, which doesn't always get to happen. A little pool time and a few hours at Universal Studios Orlando. Our season passes officially ran out today and we spent a few hours yesterday … [Read more...]

Features from Last Week’s Link Party

Hello and happy Tuesday! I'm so excited to report that I worked on the dressers over the weekend and they only have a few more steps needed before they will be completed. Unfortunately, Mr. Woodsy is sick right now and I'm starting to get sick so my aspirations of getting them completed this week and in our room by the weekend is slowly fading. But, you never know--maybe one of us will get a spirt of energy! lol. I am getting the sewing itch once again and am yearning to sew myself some amazing … [Read more...]

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend (for those in the United States). Mr. Woodsy and I had a chance to get away for the weekend and head up to north Florida; however, Tropical Storm Beryl cut our visit a day short. We decided to go home a day early so we weren't stuck in the storm without power. I think we made a smart decision because all of our friends were without power and dealing with torrential down pours and heavy winds. Instead we were hoping to do a few home … [Read more...]

I'm over at Its So Very, Cheri today! I'd love if you would stop by and see my top 10 craft projects and top 10 recipes from … [Read more...]

  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and an even better mother's day (for those who are mother's). We spent our entire weekend with family not projects! Although, Mr. Woodsy did sneak in a little yard work on Saturday afternoon. He also wanted to skip a very special visit yesterday with our great aunt who will be 89 next month to work on the dressers; however, I convinced him to step down from the ledge and take a weekend off from projects. We are hoping to get to some of the … [Read more...]

A big thank you to everyone who linked up last week. We had some amazing projects linked up last week. I haven't been on my sewing machine in two months; ever since I finished sewing my best friends burlap table cloths for her wedding. The blog world has inspired me to get sewing again! I can't believe this is the last full week of April. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Mr. Woodsy & I will have our bedroom complete by next week; unless we push it peddle to the metal and begin painting … [Read more...]
