An old sign toolbox side table to store all those remotes

read

It’s been said I don’t ‘do colour’ in my house. And I’d have to agree. Between my monotone’d salvage farmhouse styled bathroom and rustic bedroom, there’s virtually no colour. Well, adding colour is pretty easy AND painless with just a little paint! And I’m happy to say, making this old sign toolbox side table to store […]

The little toolbox that brought me back to my quiet

read

A funny thing happened to me when I came back from Snap. I didn’t know what to do with myself.  We as bloggers are accustomed to creating on our own. In the quiet. Then we move on over to a humming computer monitor, type a few keys and create a blog post. Then we do it […]

I walked towards the front door, tripped over the newspapers, mindlessly threw them into the recycle bin and proceeded inside.  Once the door clicked shut, I gasped. Repening it in a real hurry and scrambling […]

A funky wall cabinet gallery… with names.

read

This funky wall cabinet gallery kind of happened by accident. And such a happy one it is! There was this little space in between the fireplace and my blog office that wasn’t all that productive. The trunk holds firewood, but I’ve required more office storage forever. Only issue is, I didn’t want it to take […]
