DIY Bathroom Shelf

I know it’s been a while since my last tutorial post!  I try to keep on top of it, but lets me honest… life gets in the way sometimes!  Here is a great easy shelf you can make for your bathroom!

As some of you may remember, I’m working on updating an entire townhouse!  The second room I started, was the Master en-suite.  It needed a lot of work!  Green, green everywhere… For some much needed storage, I created this adorable shelf!  Here’s a full tutorial so you can make this too!

Laying Peel & Stick Tile – Its so easy!

Peel and stick tile is one of my new favorite things!  I used it for the first time in the ensuite bathroom of the town house we’re staying in.  The floor wasn’t in terrible condition before, it just didn’t work with the decor I wanted!

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!

Accent Chair Makeover

Coral is one of my favorite colours.  The perfect mix of orange and pink is amazing!   I knew when I picked up two of these chairs for $11.00 I wanted a bright coral colour.  So I went to the fabric store and found the fabrics that would be the inspiration for this whole project!

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!

80’s Headboard turned Book Nook

Do you remember those tacky 80’s headboards? The ones with built in shelves?  They were heavy, and dark, and awkward! Most of the time you could barely give them away for free, but here I was, jumping for joy when I found one for $10! I knew exactly what I wanted to do and already had my inspirational wallpaper on hand.  This was going to be our daughters new book nook!
