Summer Deck made from Pallets

We needed a quick & inexpensive deck to cover a muddy spot.  Mr. Blessing put this one together in a weekend.  We ordered pallets from a local pallet company. They deliver right to your...

Old Door Arbor

Mr. Blessing's project last Fall - Arbors built from old doors.

Time Well Spent

I think this was the most "green" project I've done lately.  An old metal tub, a window frame, discarded sections of fence and a broken Target clock (I told the kids to take it outside, rip off...

JUNK Market Bag

When I moved my computer into the armoire, I found an old pack of stencils that I'd forgotten about.  I just had to put them to use.  Reversible burlap market bag - just in time for...

Decorating Outdoors

I was trying to get my back porch ready for my son's graduation party last weekend and I called my mom to see if she had found any old chandeliers in her hunting lately.  She sent...

Garage Sale Heaven

Can you guess where I'll be this weekend?!

Market Bags

Curbside Pink Stove

Just had to share my best curbside find...  Everything works, even the rotisserie.  I can't call it a junk project really but how could I resist it?! 

Box Spring Re-Do

I couldn't resist this old box spring.

Re: On Newsstands Now!

I picked up a copy at the grocery store today! I know you're probably used to it by now but isn't cool to see a bit of yourself at the grocery store, the book store, the home decor stores?! I've been leafing through it already and I can't wait to watch the dvd later. Congratulations!
