DIY - Painted Rock Paper Weight

September 17, 2019
How to paint a design on a rock
Cleaning and organizing the garage usually turns into working on a myriad of tiny projects that you weren't even thinking about tackling. 

That's exactly what happened to me this past weekend, when I stood there in the garage. I couldn't concentrate on cleaning the space because there were tons of "little projects" that looked back at me saying.. "remember that you put me right here and forgot about me? Pick me up!!" 

This painted rock was the first one that I wanted to make because the memories it brings are still fresh in my mind! :) 

This Summer we didn't travel or take a big vacation, we stayed home and went on small trips around the area. During one of those outings we stopped by a little creek and let Louie 🐶 take a dive.
While Louie was cooling down, we began our search for the perfect rock to bring home...

Well, besides finding the flattest rock to bring home as a memento, we also captured the ugliest picture of our Louie!! 😂 All drenched but happy with his first swim.

Hey guys,

Thanks so much for all your kind words on my previous posts about the reveal of my bedroom. I'm so very happy at how everything turned out. There were a few projects in the mix and this pair of wall mounted night stands with wireless phone chargers is one of them.

You can check the complete reveal of this room right HERE.

These night stands were one of those final projects to make it to the room. I knew I wanted something simple, the first nightstands I had in this room were two bulky pieces with three drawers each, that were filled to the brim with random and useless stuff.
When the previous makeover was done I got rid of them and brought two little tables, folding tables without any storage. Guess what? They worked pretty OK. 

For this last makeover, I wanted something

A Hanging Planter - A Repurposed Project

Modern bedroom with hanging planter on high ceiling
Hello there!
It's been a while since my last repurposed project. It feels so good to utilize an object in a different way than it was in its former life. This hanging planter that now adorns that high elevation in my bedroom, is exactly that. Hard to believe that pretty shiny circle is the same object you see in the picture below. Any guesses about what is it?

How to Change the Car Battery on a 2003 Honda Odyssey

Husky - 125-Piece Mechanics Tool Set

Good morning friends!

This is not one of my usual DIY or decor post, but it's something that affected me a few weeks ago.

I was running some errands when I noticed the lights on the dashboard were running very dim. Well, nothing I could do right there. I also forgot to tell my husband when I got home to check out that issue. It was only until the next morning, when I was about to go out again and my car didn't turn on, that I remember something wasn't working properly. Yep. The battery.

Now, if you paid attention to the year on title of this post, my car is a very old car. A minivan, the one I used to bring my kids to school and trips when they were little. I loved it then and I love it now. It's been so reliable! Nowadays I use it a lot to carry lumber, I can fit a full sheet of plywood nicely in there... and furniture pieces, and trash to the recycling center... And I don't have to worry about damaging it anymore.

DIY - Accent Wall

August 19, 2019
master bedroom with an accent wooden wall
Turning this boring, slanted wall into one of the main features of this room started by installing a modern geometric design on it.

My last post was about how I wanted to create a design on paper, but sadly and as usual, I failed at doing so. I commissioned my nephew to do that job for me. He delivered three beautiful designs, but I kind of chickened-out on working with the one I liked. There were too many numbers and cuts to follow and to tell you the truth, I'm not too good at that.

 What did I do instead??

Well, I went my own way, creating an even easier design as I went along.

I can tell you it was a fun project that required lots of
