I made this board for Mr. Awesome for our anniversary representing some of the bottles of wine we’d shared over the past year. I thought I had enough corks but apparently not… This is still a work in progress!
Most wine bottle corks are no longer “cork”, they are rubber which works even better for this project [...]
Awhile back, I wrote an article for The Design Confidential on How to Replace Windows . I’ve just recently upgraded both of the kids’ bedrooms with new windows.
It seemed like nothing went right from the start but I kept thinking about the finish line… These windows would be so much better than the heat magnets [...]
A few months ago, I shared a post on How to “Girl Up” a Man’s T-Shirt” . Today, I want to continue that with a few new ideas!
These shirts are so comfy so why not alter them to reflect your individual style?

Let’s get started!
Cushions for outdoor furniture are expensive!! I’m not even going to mention how much I paid for the cushions I bought for the furniture I built… Let’s just say they cost way more than the lumber to build the furniture!
Making your own outdoor cushions can sometimes be almost as expensive as buying them. The [...]
When I first saw Simple Mat at my local Home Depot, I have to admit I was very skeptical. Since I am a person who likes to get things done, I figured I’d give it a try! If it didn’t work, well I would give myself an “I told you so” lecture…
Anyway, you’re [...]
Awhile back, I bought some ice cream that came in a pretty nifty plastic container (it was good, too!). I saved it because I thought I might be able to use it for something.
I use sponge brushes all the time and buy them in bulk. I have a ton of them but [...]
Making a custom floor cloth to reflect your style isn’t hard! Its very inexpensive, too, using regular canvas fabric and non-slip rug backing!

I saw this art in a magazine and I recognized the lyrics right away – “Blackbird” by The Beatles! How awesome!
This art can be totally customized not only in size, but for any song lyrics you choose – whether it be Frank Sinatra’s “New York”, LMFAO’s ”Party Rock Anthem”, Megadeth’s “Symphony of Destruction”, or whatever! [...]
My boyfriend, Matt, just graduated from college. I am so proud of him… Not only did he serve our country (he’s retired military) but he graduated Magna Cum Laude, with honors and the whole deal! He has worked so hard and deserves all of the accolades he’s received. From now on, I’ll refer to him as “Mr. [...]
Here is another upholstery “collaboration” with The Design Confidential, this time upholstering the Pottery Barn Teen Inspired Suite Chair. I had a little help from The Han with this one, especially since this chair is for her room. We are transitioning into a “teen” room to reflect her style!
The fabrics we chose for [...]
