The story of salvaged $80 Cabinets

Upcycled Woodshop

Garage Woodshop - from upcycled materials The perfect distraction from finishing my #30DayFlip outdoor challenge?  Craigslist.My Craigslist purchases are horribly timed and perfectly in tune with my ADD. I discover my "must haves" and "can't live without-s" at the worst times. Think 2am, when I can't sleep and about a week before direct deposit saves us from financial disaster. Craigslist makes me covet. And I sin. "It's on Craigslist, dammit!" is typically my weak and defensive justification to buy my warped, smelly, unfortunately-timed purchases that are never perfect, but have "potential".My Craigslist habit is what hijacks current projects and priorities all too often. Ok, I'll stop complaining now. Introducing our new "salvaged" woodshop.But they weren't always this pre … [Read more...]

Curb Appeal: 4 Tips to Stand Out in the Crowd

Creating Curb Appeal with Beautiful Plants by

This post is sponsored by Monrovia When I built my home ten years ago (and before the blog), playing in the dirt became one of my favorite past times. I would be outside for hours planting rows of annuals, pulling weeds and tending to my flower beds while my "littles" were playing. My neighborhood is filled cookie-cutter houses that all look the same, so the only real way to differentiate our home from everyone else's was creative mixes of plants and flowers. (Keep reading to discover tips on how make your home stand out in the crowd).  In early spring, this is what you'll find as you pull up to my driveway.Before my Monrovia plant makeover. To think, two months ago my mailbox was covered in a mound of snow, ice and salt. My home's landscape used to be my pride and joy, but extreme w … [Read more...]

Today we are wrapping up our family room, and getting ready for the big reveal tomorrow! We've been hard at work adding a few finishing touches, and we're loving our new industrial look. For awhile, the room was a mismash of eclectic items. Some farmhouse, some industrial. But for the summer months, I've definitely decided to open up the rooms, remove anything that is blocking a window...and freshening up the room with pretty succulents and greenery. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for the full reveal!Welcome to Shabbilicious Friday!   Meet the Hosts:  Shabby Art Boutique - Facebook - Pinterest - Instagram - Twitter   All Things Heart & Home - Facebook - Pinterest - Instagram - Twitter  Anastasia Vintage - Facebook - Pi … [Read more...]

I was living vicariously by scrolling through the #brooklynflea hashtags on Instagram. I decided against it, mainly because I knew I'd have to drag any "treasures" I found all the way to Israel and then back to Ohio again. All of my hashtagging connected me with a really cool vendor that sells industrial items online...and we struck up a conversation. So I'd like to introduce you to our next sponsor for … [Read more...]
