Our New Little {Project} Pop Up Camper

1999 Coleman Santa Fe

Whew!  It has been a loooong time since I’ve been around here, but in my defense, it has been a long time since I’ve had a good project.  Honestly, I just haven’t felt excitement for a new project.  We had such a fabulous time on our camping road trip last summer, that all I’ve wanted […]

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 […]

Valentine Chair Backer

Pottery Barn Chair Backers

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.  Ours was full of fun and family… and bronchitis.  I’ve been down for nearly 3 weeks with the stuff.  Yesterday was the first day I felt like myself again, so I put away all the Christmas stuff and got out a few Valentines Day decorations.  I don’t […]

{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 […]

Marshmallow Santa Treats

Tigger Tail at Disneyland

One of the things we love about Disneyland is all the yummy treats they have.  Our favorite place to get something sweet is Pooh’s Corner in Critter Country.  One of our friends suggested we try a tigger tail on our recent trip to The Happiest Place on Earth, and boy were we glad we did! […]

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 […]

Our Entryway & Mudroom {Dressed up for Fall}

Entryway Shoe Cabinet Fall

I’ve been working on a few projects here and there, trying to make sure our house is warm and welcoming {and clean!} for our Thanksgiving guests.  I pulled out a few more fall decorations and painted a cute sign for the top of the shoe cabinet, so I thought I’d give you guys a tour […]

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 […]

Easy-Peasy {Faux} Rust Treatment

Sheet Metal Sign

Yay!  It’s Friday!  Unfortunately, the Richardson house has caught the stomach flu…  Boo!  So with my girls home from school, there was no time to work on the half-finished trumeau mirror in the garage.  Bummer.  After about the 15th rerun of Good Luck, Charlie, I’d had enough.  I decided to tackle something small.  Something quick, […]
