Spare Toilet Paper Holder

When it comes to spare TP holders, I can’t help but conjure up images of old, crocheted roll covers with lots of frill and lace.  You know the kind I’m talking about – there’s probably one sitting on the back of your parents or grandparents toilet right now.  There’s nothing wrong with them, and ifContinue reading “Spare Toilet Paper Holder”

Distressed Wood Succulent Planter

I’m CRAZY about succulents.  They’re just so little and cute!  And, (supposedly) they’re virtually indestructible.  Time will tell on that one.  We wanted to create a planter for our succulents out of distressed wood.  And we wanted to do it as cheaply as possible.  So, I took inspiration from this planter found on Pinterest, and weContinue reading “Distressed Wood Succulent Planter”
