Happy weekend!

I have so many things in the hopper at the moment that I can barely keep track!

Our inflatable hot tub came in! So yesterday we went and picked up wood for the decking, and hopefully this weekend we will get it built! Summer is here, and we want to dip our toes into refreshing water that is JUST the right temperature during the summer, then heat things up when the weather is cooler. We are excited!

I’m also working on a new garden collection of stencils (see our current garden stencil designs HERE). So if you are planting a few select things, these garden designs will most definitely make your little garden area shine! And if they’re too late for this summer, you can get a head start planning your next! But I think they’ll be just in time. When things are in full bloom, a pretty outdoor garden sign can really up the ante.

And a dear neighbour just dropped off the most adorable rustic stool on my front porch. (see other stool project makeovers HERE) That in itself will be a project to save, since it’s falling apart! Then use it in some fun way because it’s most definitely one-of-a-kind, made from rustic wood and branches. I’m just so grateful I get to save it!

At this point, I need more of me than what’s avail so I’ll hit these things one at a time and eventually get a story up on the blog to share. 

So until then, let’s feast our DIY lovin’ eyes on these fabulous upcycled projects from last week’s party

  1. Thank you for sharing our teeny, tiny, little sailing boats, they’re so much fun to make. Talking about fun, I bet you guys are going to love your new inflatable tub. I can’t wait to see how you put the deck together. If you get bored after the build you can make your own junk sailing boats (as only you know how) and have races with your son 😉

  2. Donna, I can’t wait to see your inflatable hot tub and decking! Sounds like the ideal way to spend a summer or fall evening!! Thank you for featuring my dresser and stool cover. Happy weekend!

  3. Thank you for including my vintage garden ideas Donna! How exciting that you’ll soon have your hot tub set up, can’t wait to see what you do. We have a hot tub and have been thinking of building a deck for it.
