Our Biggest Project Ever!

edited-9262

This past weekend, we began our biggest project ever!  We started framing the shop my husband has been dreaming about for years.  At 2,400 square feet, it's bigger than our house, which is 2,200 square feet.  I personally didn't think it needed to be bigger than our house, but I guess men think differently than women when it comes to these things.  That just means I get half of ...

Wood Burned Wall Art

Have you ever used a wood burner?  It's something I've wanted to do for as long as I can remember.  Why it took me so long is still a mystery to me.  There are so many cool things you can create with a wood burner.  I decided it was finally time to take the plunge and bought a wood burning kit from Hobby Lobby.  For my first design, I probably could have picked a less ...

Finding My Happy Place

A while back, I was asked by Taylor from Porch.com to share my "happy place" in my home as part of their #loveyourhome series.  I thought it was a fantastic idea!  I needed a reason to really search my home for my favorite place.  We've been slowly remodeling our home since we bought it over four years ago, and I'd never really stopped to pick a place that truly made ...

Happy Saturday!  Today I'm finally sharing the tutorial for this awesome tailgate bench I've been teasing you with for the past several weeks.  I actually got the idea to build this bench about a year and a half ago.  I mentioned something to my mom about it and the next day she and her boyfriend showed up with a tailgate they'd picked up at a swap meet.  It was perfectly ...

Front Porch Sittin’ and Sweet Tea Sippin’

Sometimes there's nothing more relaxing than sitting on the front porch and enjoying a beautiful evening.  My husband and I do this almost every night.  It's our time to sit and just talk about our day after the kids go to bed.  It's also a place where parents can sit and watch their kids play, or visit with friends who drop by for a visit.   For me, I want to make our front ...

How I Turned My Garage Into A Smart Garage

I'm not the most technologically savvy person in the world.  I am not one that runs out and buys the latest gadget when it comes out and I'm certain I only utilize half of the capabilities of my current gadgets.  That being said, there are some new forms of technology that are so amazing that I can't imagine my life without them!  One of them is my new garage door opener.  I ...

Hey everyone!  Last week I decided to clean out my garage.  It had started getting a bit out of control and wasn't making projects very easy to complete.  It was time to finally clean things up, so it spent a day cleaning and organizing things.  One of the things getting out of control was my lumber pile.  I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to lumber scraps.  If ...
