How to Refinish an End Table with #3MDIY

This post is a collaboration with 3M DIY. Early last year, our neighbor, Edie, came to us asking if we could help her refinish an end table. We told her yes, but then project after project (and pregnancy) got in the way. We made it a resolution to ourselves that we were going to refinish the end table for her birthday (which was last Friday)! We picked it up in the morning and brought it back to her by the end of the day. She was amazed at the drastic difference and said it was her best … [Read more...]

Make Stenciled Cookie Tins in no time using acrylic paint, stencils, and sponges!

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts.  Earlier this month, I received my final box for the 12 Months of Martha campaign I've been working on all year.

Wood Pallet Wreath Art

Wood Pallet Wreath Art

I'm so excited to share with you today the Wood Pallet Wreath Art I created for our front room where our Jingle Brights Christmas Tree stands. When the wreath was first sent to us I knew I wanted to do more than just hang it on the wall. I knew I wanted to make it more like an art piece... so that's when I started starring at the scrap wood in the garage. I worked on this project earlier this month, back when Jon was trying to finish up on our kitchen. The day I chose to create the wood pallet … [Read more...]

Paint Less–Tape More + $75 Home Depot Gift Card

This post was brought to you in partnership with The Home Depot and ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape. Last year we made our master bedroom into a master suite--a place to really unwind and enjoy!

It took a lot of convincing to get Jon to repaint over that wall. Back when we were painting the room we … [Read more...]
