Custom Night Stands

I am constantly looking for potential.  For inspiration from something old or unwanted.  One day I was searching Craigslist like I do and came across a coffee table and side table!  For only $20!  I emailed the guy and picked them up that day.  I just loved the lines of the legs.  I was excited to start refinishing these pieces!

DIY Drawer turned Shoe Rack

My daughter has more shoes then my entire house hold put together.  And she’s only 2!  After our fire, we had so much amazing support from the community and Myra didn’t go with out a thing, especially shoes!  I needed to come up with a solution, the floor just wasn’t cutting it any more.  I had picked up a couple of lonely drawers from a bid site one day with Myra’s shoes on my mind. Here’s a quick tutorial on a great kids shoe storage!

DIY Fire Place Upgrade

So as some of you may know, our house burnt down a few months ago.  When we were on the hunt for a place to rent during the rebuild, it was almost impossible to find something!  Luckily we have amazing friends…  One friend offered us his townhouse, on one condition, that we paint the walls and do some minor upgrades so he can sell when we move out! Well this is right up my alley.  I would probably go nuts if we rented a place that wouldn’t allow me to paint!
