White-white walls with revamped kitchen crate shelves

read

When I first painted my house after the main renos, a really nice tone called Bamboo Beach by Cloverdale Paint (in Canada) covered every. single. wall. All of them. I really did love the colour… until I didn’t. As time went on I just desired something fresher. On went the search of the perfect greige! […]

The real garden shed and fence gets cleaned up – part 1

read

As most of you already know, this little rustic shed I often feature out back isn’t a real garden shed at all. It morphed from a greenhouse, and today houses firewood, while becoming a cute focal point to the backyard through a sawhorse potting bench, added shutters, and so forth. What I HAVEN’T really shown you […]

I have NEVER before been a fan of having a TV in a bedroom.  However, my stance on this has thus changed, since becoming a sole parent in TV screen competition with a teen son threatening to remove my recent Netflix series addiction… I never even use to watch TV! Shame on me for firing it up […]

Well, as you already know from the greenhouse touring post, I buckled down and bought some new flowers for summer. With a freshly pressure washed shed, this thing was ready for blooms! I really did love last summer’s Potting Shed rake sign with the potted flowers, however I wanted to do something slightly different this […]

Turn anything into cozy flannel with Plaid Shirt stencil

read

Growing up as a farmer’s daughter, one thing will never leave my memories. My Dad was a plaid shirt fanatic. Even his good town shirts were plaid. The only time he didn’t wear plaid was when he went to church. But I’d bet he would have if Mom let him…:) How fun is the idea […]

How to stencil a table runner

read

When I was designing the stencil Buffalo Check, I had these wild visions dance in my head… of a painted table runner. Overall patterns are of course cool! But just a small run of this stencil could also be enough on the right project… Like the top of a dresser… or centre of a table. Or… […]
