DIY Jewelry Cabinet

DIY Jewelry Cabinet

Wow!  It has been quite a long time since I’ve posted any of our projects around the House on Harrison.  That little pop up camper has taken up all our time.  But I wanted to share with you a project that I worked on for Bug’s Room. Bug is a teenager now, so getting ready […]

My Chuck Box Project

Tent Camping Adventure

I have been M.I.A. around here for quite awhile, but there is a really good reason for it.  Around March, my kids (and husband) decided that they wanted to take an adventure road trip for summer vacation this year.  I was initially skeptical.  I am not really a risk taker, and I typically don’t do […]

{More} American Girl Doll Beds

Plywood Panels

The holiday season is always busy for us, and this year has been no exception.  I’ve been working away on Christmas gifts, but haven’t had much time to blog about it.  These two cuties were just too adorable to let slip on by, though.  Not long ago, I shared a fun (and cheap) American Girl doll […]

Cabinet Door Easel

Repurposed Cabinet Door

I’m back with a fun project that makes a perfect birthday or Christmas gift.  Remember those cabinet doors I found on a curbside trash day? There were three of them, and I used the largest to make my game room snack tray. The other one became a floor desk for my cute little niece. I […]

Bathroom Cabinet {turned} Ribbon Storage

Radiator Springs Racers

Wow!  What a crazy whirlwind the past two weeks have been.  We hosted Thanksgiving here for our extended family of 22, then two days later we took off for a mini family reunion at The Happiest Place on Earth–Disneyland! I just have to say, the new Radiator Springs Racers ride is AWESOME!  We had a […]

DIY Trumeau Mirror

Builder grade mirror

Whew!  I’m finally back.  That stomach flu did a number on us.  We are still not 100% well around here, but things are much better than last week.  I had a chance to get some work done on a few projects around here, and that was a relief.  We are hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I have […]

Feeling Inspired

If you follow me on Pinterest, you know I’ve been pinning a lot of trumeau mirrors lately. We need a mirror for the music room, and I’ve wanted to attempt one ever since I saw Susie Harris’s awesome tutorial years ago.  I just adore Susie’s blog.  I’ve followed it for years.  I love her sense […]

DIY Trophy Display {& Pinboard}

The Handbuilt Home

This has been a crazy week, packed full of projects that didn’t go quite as planned.  Which seems to be my lot in life, anyway, but one project that did go off without a hitch was a trophy display shelf I made for Bug’s room.  Wanna know why???  Because I pulled the plan from this […]

When Good Projects Go Bad

One of my best girlfriends told me on the phone a couple of days ago that all my projects turn out perfect and that I’ve never had one fail.  I had to laugh out loud at that one.  That is far from the truth.  In fact, with most of my projects, I usually reach a […]

Pottery Barn Inspired Shoe Storage

I’ve always wanted a really beautiful entryway.  I have had visions of a Pottery Barn picture perfect entry space since we moved into the house on Harrison. I have loved this cabinet since I first laid eyes on it.  I can’t remember who makes it, but I’ve seen it on Pinterest a lot.  If it […]
