Tree Trimming

Tree Trimming

When we moved into our house we were very excited to see this apple tree in our backyard. Little did we know it’s branches were so long they scraped against our master bathroom window if it was windy, like a horror film. I was convinced we were about to be murdered with every storm. K […]

Music Room Makeover

This room was yellow. I wish I’d taken a before photo, but I never got around to it. The room was this yellow. If we had a kid, then fine, it could have maybe worked for a nursery, but the previous owners had it painted an avocado green before the yellow, and they did a […]

Learning to Knit

My mom taught me to crochet when I was little, and my skills extended as far as a basic beanie, using double or single crochet only, and scarves. I remember trying to make blankets for my barbies, but they never ended up the same width,  or anything. So, to say the least, my skills were […]

DIY Bedframe

K (the husband), soon to be the handiest man ever, made us a new bed frame! We’d been using a cheap frame that we bought a few years ago, and it was so rickety that when one or our dogs jumped up on it, or if we just sat down it would, literally, shake.  So, […]

DIY Entryway Table - Our Kind of Wonderful

DIY Dog Bandanna

Ok, seriously, are these dog bandanas not the cutest things ever?! They were insanely easy to make. I read the tutorial here and then I took the fabric I bought, folded it in half, then used a bandana that I’d folded to be the correct size as my pattern and I whipped out these adorable […]

Becoming DIY-ers

  More out of necessity than want, at least now, K (the husband) and I have become handy. Well, handy-ish. There’s this thing called being house poor, which people told me would happen, but I laughed at. We had a budget, we had it all figured out, we were going to be just fine. Well, […]
