Baby Shower Favors – Distressed Pots with Herb Seeds

Our friends Chris & Shara are having a baby!  We offered to help with the favors for their shower.  They had a pretty large shower – around 40 guests!  So we knew the favors had to be awesome, but also economical.  After some internet surfing, we came up with this idea, which is a mashupContinue reading “Baby Shower Favors – Distressed Pots with Herb Seeds”

Wood Stars

I’m so amazed by smart people.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, I like to consider myself fairy bright.  But sometimes I’m truly overwhelmed by what other people can do.  Take these stars, for instance.  It would have taken me somewhere in the ballpark of 3 months to figure out the math and the anglesContinue reading “Wood Stars”

Dresser Rehab with Hidden Compartment

Our very good friends Chris & Shara are expecting a baby in November.  When they mentioned that they were paying someone to redo a dresser for them, we said, “Excuse me?? Why would you pay a stranger to do that when we would LOVE to do the project for you!”  They did decide to entrustContinue reading “Dresser Rehab with Hidden Compartment”

Console Table from Raw Lumber

We absolutely love tables made from slabs – especially when the live edge is left intact.  Something about the modern + natural combination is so beautiful.  All the clean, sharp lines intrinsic in modern design coupled with the rawness and beauty of wood slabs is just stunning.

Command Center

Any good mudroom needs a command center, right??  That’s what we thought, too.  Ours is a combination of things from Container Store and Ikea.  Check out the captions in the picture below to see where everything was purchased.  All in all, this command center cost about $90.  Many of the Container Store items were onContinue reading “Command Center”

Mudroom Remodel

When we moved into the new house, our mudroom consisted of 4 walls, a tile floor and a ceiling.  That’s about it.  Since we had about 734 projects that took priority over finishing this space, we quickly hacked together an old Ikea bookcase and turned it into a wardrobe-of-sorts. It served it’s purpose – hadContinue reading “Mudroom Remodel”

Kitchen Pantry Remodel

Prior to this remodel, there was so much unusable space in our kitchen pantry!  The built-in shelves that our builder installed did not maximize the space at all.  We can’t really claim this as a DIY project because all we did was demolition the old pantry, and install the new one.  But we’re still proud ofContinue reading “Kitchen Pantry Remodel”

Wedding Picture Collage on Large Canvas

It’s been 5 years since Susan and I got married.  Hard to believe!  Even harder to believe that in those 5 years, we’ve yet to do anything with our wedding pictures!  We have a few displayed here and there throughout the house, but we have a TON of gorgeous pictures from our wedding.  So weContinue reading “Wedding Picture Collage on Large Canvas”

Metal Pipe Coat Hanger

We have some pretty useless dead space at the entryway of our house.  It’s a little niche – narrow and long.  We’ve been trying to decide what to do with this awkward space.  Since we converted the coat closet at our entryway into a “media control room,” we realized we needed a place for guestsContinue reading “Metal Pipe Coat Hanger”
