Nothing adds a bit of pizzazz like some flashy marquee letters. Unfortunately, while Etsy offers oodles of them, they are largely out of my price range, and by my price range, I mean the amount Andy will confidently agree that I should spend on light up letters for a 4 day event. Commence project DIY. I [...]

MUST HAVE: DIY Vintage Hoodie

I don't know about you, but I hate to have things all up on my neck. On top of that, I have a large chest, so high necklines- on top of choking me- are really unflattering. Plus I like my sweatshirts with cleavage. I'll own that. So, I have come up with a solution to [...]

Remember the television console that almost killed me? Thanks to copious amounts of help from Andy and my mom, I was able to finish it, but out of principal, I gave it the silent treatment the whole entire time. It actually wasn't the only thing I purchased that day. I also left with a headboard [...]

This weekend we're having a kid Halloween party. I'm really excited about it. Well I was more excited about it two months ago when I declared we were going to throw it and bought a bunch of Halloween magazines, and am slightly less excited about it now that I have to clean my house and [...]

Where have I been? Oh you know, making furniture. Like Jesus. So, as you may remember, I've been a bit of a garage sale whore lately, hunting down some great wood pieces to refinish and introduce into my home in a way that says, hi, I'm super eclectic and artsy. Like if Zoe Dechanel and [...]
