Make Your Own Glitter Pumpkins

Glitter Pumpkins

Fall is in the air or at least in theory, here in Oklahoma it's still 80 degrees but, whatever. Anyway, we can still do fall-like things and almost all of my fall craft projects involve glitter. This is the world's easiest craft project but it's also packed full of fun because well, you know, there's glitter involved. I have added a video of the project to the bottom of this post as well, I had a blast shooting this one for GEB … [Read more...]

You can change up the scents by using different body wash or essential oils. I like to use a relatively scent-free body wash then add lemon essential oil which just smells delicious. Ingredients: Sugar Olive Oil Body Wash Directions: I gave no measurements because it … [Read more...]

The Journey of the DIY Table…

The Journey of the DIY Table

Well, here's the thing. I had an idea for a cute table and I found a cheap one on craigslist, it looked like this: Pretty common looking table that would look fabulous with some good paint and distressing...or so I thought. This table has been through 4 makeovers...FOUR. Why? Well, first, I painted the table then when I went to distress it, literally almost all of the paint started crumbling off. No good. The second time around, I … [Read more...]

Want a peek into my garage of current projects? Right now, I'm releasing all my stress on my own furniture and honestly, it seems to be working out. Here's a few of my current projects.

It's time for a makeover around here! Just about everything is getting a new look and this chair was first on the list. It actually is really cool and came from my great aunt.

A Simple Corner of Happy

Funktified from PeaceLoveandSarah.com

I love this corner of my dining room. It's simple and it's pretty. I picked up that picture at a beautiful store in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. My mom made those corner shelves out of old closet doors just for me. I'll be showing off some of her creations soon on the site. And, my favorite is that rolling cart. I spotted it at My Papa's Barn in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma not too long ago. I'll admit, it's been on my front porch, in the living room and … [Read more...]
