Quarantine Upcycle Challenge: 3-Tier Wooden Planter

I am joining a fun group of bloggers for a Quarantine Upcycle Challenge. In this challenge, since we are all mostly still self-quarantining, we will either MAKE, REVAMP or REFURBISH something we already have, using only materials we have on hand. I am excited to show you the DIY 3-Tier Wooden Planter that my husband and I came up with. You will not believe what my creative blogger friends came up with in this quarantine…

How to Apply a Stencil (Tips from a Novice)

How to Apply a Stencil

Last week I revealed my thrift store challenge pub table make over.  It looks nice the way it is, but I thought I would kick it up a notch and add a stencil to the top.  Stencilslab.com agreed to work with me on this project and sent me this amazing Mandala stencil!  Isn’t it gorgeous?  My table is 36 inches so I ordered the 20×20 inch size.  Most of their stencils come as large as…

Year in Review – 2018
