How To Remove Baseboards

How To Remove Baseboards

Have you ever wondered how to remove the baseboards from your walls without damaging the physical wall itself? While I was away from our home a few months ago, Mr. Woodsy decided he wanted to change out our baseboards in our Master Bedroom. He has became a pro at removing baseboards from the wall without any damage. The baseboard pictured above is the original baseboard from our home. When we first moved into our home Mr. Woodsy carefully removed the baseboards so he could install the bamboo … [Read more...]

Scrap Ribbon Valentine Garland

Scrap Ribbon Valentine Garland 1

I am making the effort to not spend a lot of money on craft supplies this year, and in doing so using more of the supplies I already own. I got this garland idea while cruising the Valentine aisle at Michaels. That is when I realized it was finally time for me to stop hoarding my scraps of ribbon and put them to good use! I saw it and loved it, but didn't want to spend $12.99 on a strand of garland. I also didn't want it as busy as the one I had seen at Michaels. I originally was going to use … [Read more...]

{Pool Table} Dining Room Tablecloth

before After pool table table cloth

What do you do when you need a table cloth that fits a massive pool table--table top? You certainly can't find one that fits (and looks good) at just any store, and if you try to buy one from a specialty store you are going to spend a ridiculous amount of money. My good friend, Sarah, from While They Snooze, suggested I buy 2 or 3 table cloths and sew them together. I took her advice, and that's exactly what I did! I'm so incredibly happy with how it turned out, and best of all I now have a … [Read more...]

Pearl Ribbon Necklace

Ribbon Pearl Necklace 1

I'm not one to make my own jewelry, so this is a fairly new concept for me. I figured a great way to take the plunge was to make a pearl ribbon necklace. It seemed fairly easy, and since I've been wanting to make one for quite some time I figured this would be a great beginner jewelry making project! As you know I guest blog from time-to-time on the Bowdabra blog, and by doing so I receive quite a bit of ribbon to use for my projects. Last month I receied a wide variety of the new Ribbon to … [Read more...]

Zombie Planted Hands

Screen shot 2011-10-10 at 8.14.25 AM

I first got the idea to make this inexpensive Halloween decoration thanks to the all-might Pinterest. I pinned this idea a few months ago, and during one of my many trips to the Dollar Store I found Severed Hands. That's when it occurred to me that I could plant this bad boys and make my own sort of "zombie planted hands". Depending on how many Zombie Planted Hands you "plant" will depend on the cost of matierals. In my case I needed 6 hands (although 5 were only pictured at the time). That … [Read more...]
