This year just happens to be Canada’s 150th birthday — Can you believe it?! I really wanted to create something special in order to celebrate this year. I wanted to devise something that would look a little on the rustic side, and also look just as old as Canada, itself…Continue reading →
I recently had the opportunity to join a new blogging group called Furniture Refresh! Each month, we get to take an old piece of furniture and breath new life into it using different products and techniques! This month, our mission was to stain a piece of furniture.
This is my first project with the Furniture Refresh group, so I’m really excited to share it with you all! Continue reading →
This year, I really wanted to make our porch into the perfect relaxation/hang-out space for our family. In order to do this, I decided that we needed a bench so that we would have more room for everyone to sit. So I headed out to The Project Pile… Did some digging… And this is what I found!Continue reading →
I recently had the opportunity to ask 16 amazing home design and decor bloggers any question that I wanted! Since I know that everyone has at least one of these types of spaces in their home, I decided to ask:
What is your best advice for making those teeny-tiny, small spaces in your home look, or at least feel larger than they really are?
The answers that these 16 pro-bloggers came back with are pretty clever, and I’m more than sure that they will definitely help when you are faced with this more than common, design challenge!Continue reading →
Have you ever been to a flea market before?! If not, then you totally need to go! Even if you’re not that much into finding pieces of furniture to flip, there’s almost always something for everyone! Car parts, furniture, antiques, collectibles, toys, and usually lots and lots of junk… Sometimes items jump right out at you, and other times you may have to sift through, but if you wonder around enough, you’re sure to find something!
This weekend I was able to spend my whole Saturday at one of my favorite flea markets, back in my hometown, the Annual Stirling Agricultural Society Flea Market, which is always held on the first weekend of May.Continue reading →
Lately, I have been seeing large strings of wooden beads all over in different home décor settings… At first I wasn’t one hundred percent sure about them, but the more I saw them, the more I fell in love and appreciated them!
Last week when I was out treasure hunting/thrifting, I happened upon a great find! A big bag of large wooden beads! I thought, oh my goodness, I bet I could just string these guys together, and voila! I would have my very own string of wooden beads!Continue reading →
Does anyone else have a slight obsession with twine, lately?! I love it! You can basically take any object, one that you don’t especially care for, wrap it in twine, and get a whole new look! It’s really like one of the easiest and least expensive décor hacks out there…
Did you know that twine is actually composed of two or more smaller strands that are individually twisted, and then twisted together, to make a larger strand.
I actually just had a flashback to my childhood years, and I think my fascination with twine may have all started when I was young and to keep busy while my parents were working in the fields on the farm, I would twist and braid pieces of bailer-twine… (And that’s how it all started?!)Continue reading →
