reclaimed scrap wood window box-3298

When we were in Hawaii last summer, we went to this little town called Paia, in Maui.

Or maybe it […]

On my continued Crap to Clean before Spring quest, today I’m taking you downstairs to my paint studio.

Housework is like dieting. You let things get out of hand… so you have two choices… Either try and do better moving forward, OR…  Break out into a sweat, and undo a few things that were previously done… THEN try and do better moving forward.

I cut myself a deal. Whatever I’d put in my single car garage turned dream workshop, it would be: #1. Unique. #2. Super easy to make for others to copy. #3. Hopefully, quite possibly free. #4. Very me. And I do believe I’ve achieved that with this one. Organize your tools on an enhanced pallet […]
