How To Upcycle A Glass Table

This is a sponsored post on behalf of A new year means that you typically try to clean out your home and get rid of what's not needed. This has definitely been the case for us. Even if it wasn't a new year with a new baby on the way we are trying to make as much room as possible. We received these glass end tables from a friend a few years ago. We didn't love them but they served a purpose in our front room. We were going to get rid of them and that's when we decided it will be … [Read more...]

Brighten Up An Old Outdoor Lantern

Back in June when we were working on revamping our patio I decided to take a little spray paint to an old lantern to brighten it up!  This was considered a free project since I had everything on hand. The only thing I had to do was use a little time and elbow grease! First things first, you'll need about an hour-ish (give or take) to complete this project. I purchased this lantern a year ago at HomeGoods in the clearance section. I always knew I wanted to do something with it but just wasn't … [Read more...]

Revamped Wood Outdoor Table

Last year, I shared a simple project on our restored wood outdoor table. Well, fast forward a year later and that restored wood table is good, but I wanted to give it a fresh coat of paint to make it pop more in our new outdoor patio. So we both got to work tackling various spray paint refresh projects like the Faux Dip-Dyed Garden Pot and the spray painted lantern (coming soon), and Jon worked on the revamped wood outdoor table project. Supplies Need for this Project: Drill (we love … [Read more...]

Faux Dip-Dyed Garden Pot

Last week, we revealed our summer patio refresh. We honestly can't stop looking at our patio and of course now we are more eager than ever to entertain. While we worked on refreshing our patio we also did a few minor DIY projects. One of the projects I've been wanting to do for a while was to do a faux dip-dyed garden pot. This project did not cost us anything. With just a few supplies that we had laying around our home I was able to achieve the faux dip-dyed look that I … [Read more...]

{Tutorial} Vintage Coca-Cola Crate Turned Dog Bowl Holder

  Last summer, our neighbor (and good friend) came to us and asked if we could drill holes in an old Coca-Cola crate to make a dog bowl holder for her 5 month old yorkie. She was hoping this would solve the problem of him picking up his bowl and running around the house with it once he was finished! Our neighbor just wanted us to flip the crate over and drill holes. If we did this, the Coca-Cola writing would be upside down. Mr. Woodsy decided to take it to the next level without our … [Read more...]

Christmas DIY Canvas Subway Wall Art

DIY Subway wall art has been all the rage over the past few years. However, somehow I never jumped on the boat. When we started working on our Martha Stewart Living Holiday Collection project I knew I wanted to add some of my own personal touches to our entry hall. I felt that this was finally the time to make my own DIY subway art. Thankfully, I had bought two rather large canvas' on sale a few years back that had been taking up space in our home. One had a small hole in it and the other was in … [Read more...]
