I love t-shirts! They are so comfy, have no special laundering instructions, and look great for any occasion! I do get bored with a plain t-shirt. Sometimes I like to add just a little touch of something to dress them up a bit.
I bought two plain t-shirts on clearance for $3 each. I cut [...]
A few days ago, I posted plans to build a Simple Barstool. I really needed one for my new sewing desk, so I designed plans to build one. The best part about these plans is the cost – I used ONE 8′ 2×4 (plus an 8″ scrap) and a scrap piece of plywood to build [...]
Once again, I have hacked another design from Pottery Barn Teen, this one being the Hanging Accessories Holder. This is so cute for organizing accessories such as scarves, sunglasses, necklaces, gloves, etc. It could be hung on a hanger or a hook plus it is very easy, quick, and inexpensive to make! Plus, it can [...]

This isn’t your typical hot pad… This one has channels sewn into the fabric that are filled with birdseed! Yep, its true – birdseed! It works wonderfully to protect your countertops or table from hot pans or dishes.
I made several of these hot pads a few years ago using regular cotton quilting fabric. They [...]

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?

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 [...]
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!

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 [...]
