Master Bedroom - Planning a Wall Design

August 14, 2019
how to create and accent wall on a slanted wall

Hi there!

I'm back today with this quick post about this accent wall I want to create here in my bedroom.
My first idea was to paint this wall a dark - moody color and yes, that's still the plan. 👍

But then, I also thought on creating a design, a wooden design like the one below. Don't you love it?

This image is my biggest inspiration for what I want to do in my bedroom, but I also gathered a few ideas online...

Change Is Coming To The Master Bedroom - The Before

August 12, 2019

Good morning friends!

I've been MIA these past couple of weeks taking a break from blogging and social media, working on a few projects and going into a couple of Summer trips around the area.

It was a really nice break, but It's so good to be back to my normal routine and posting once again.

As you read it on the title, my bedroom is finally getting a makeover. Three weeks ago as I was

Scrap Wood DIY - Entry Coat Rack

July 29, 2019
Hello there!
It's time for another DIY-Challenge and I love this one because it's all about creating something new out of stuff you already have... Kind of a free project using scrap wood.

Oh, the more we build the more scrap pieces of wood we accumulate, it's like we don't want to get rid of any single piece of wood just in case we can use it later on! 🙄

Well, today we're celebrating that type of  wood hoarding with nine wonderful scrap wood projects my friends and yours truly have created. At the end of this post you can find the links to all of them.

Hello there!

My last post about the mini-makeover done this room was all about the wall design. You can check that post right here. Today, I'm giving you all the details about the desk, the built-in desk.

As I stated in the previous

Today I'm sharing with you a mini makeover done to my office with a new desk and a cool painted design on the wall.

If you're one of my regular readers, you probably know that a few years ago I turned my dining room into my office space.  A built-in unit with a bench was built and a table served double purpose as a desk and also as a dining table for those special times when we had visitors.

Well, we'd been happy with most of those changes except with

Four Great Looking DIY Ceiling Treatments

ceiling treatments that wow
We often overlook the so called fifth wall in a room, leaving it blank and missing a great opportunity to add dimension and style to a room. 

I rounded up four ceiling treatments that I've DIY'ed and that I think have added great value to each room they've been installed to. I'm adding the links for you to follow their complete details:

Summer’s OFF!® To A Good Start & DIY – Bird Houses

July 10, 2019

Well, hello my friends!
Summer is here, are you enjoying it so far? That was my plan, until a few weeks ago when a new DIY project popped on my to do list and I had to get busy. This time: Creating easy to build bird houses.

All Spring long we were busy as bees taking care of the yard. Planting a new lawn, updating shrubs and bushes, flower beds and doing a plethora of other projects in order to maintain our outdoor space looking good and ready for Summer.

Also on my to do list were a few building projects, like these DIY - Outdoor planters and coffee table. They give our outdoor space a fresh new look this season.

The thing is, I can't stop creating and keeping my hands busy. I was taking a break, outside with my son when he came up with the idea of the bird house. Of course, my new little DIY project started.


These bird houses are a beginner's project. You can use a hand saw, hammer and nails to construct a simple box with a roof out of a few small pieces of wood. In fact, I used wood taken from my scrap pile.

You can find the easy bird house plans right HERE.
Now, if you have some power tools, the building process will go much faster.

One by one, the houses were assembled... Sides, bottom and roof.
And hey, just by accident, I found a way to give the front of the houses some cool texture. ;)

Oh, I loved how they looked all white. Those roofs were created with remaining pieces of the shiplap I installed on my bathroom ceiling only that they were built using the backside of the shiplap.
However, painting the roofs in vibrant colors made them look even better. I can't wait for mother nature to give them some more character.
But hey, that's not it. This wooden crate was used to store that item that we used the most during all of our outdoor projects...
Yes, our  OFF!® Deep Woods Dry Insect repellent is what we always have at hand when working or while enjoying our outdoor spaces.

Living right next to the woods is both, a blessing and a curse. We get to enjoy its beauty, the wild life... Birds, squirrels, foxes, deer and many other animals that call this space home. But with them come many unfavorable insects and bugs that are both harmful and annoying to us humans.

Thankfully, OFF!® Deep Woods Dry Insect repellent keeps those pesky insects off our yard and bodies! It repels most flying pests and provides long lasting protection against fleas and ticks.
I love its dry formula, not the greasy or sticky feeling of most common insect repellents.
OFF!® insect repellent feels dry and comfortable and it has a pleasant smell.
And hey, I have the perfect spot to store our OFF!® insect repellent.
 No need to run to the house for it. I have it where we need it!

Most evenings we're here, enjoying our Summer and waiting for the birds to make those little houses their home.

 Weather permitting, you can find us here...
 Enjoying the fruits of our labor and not worrying about mosquitoes or other insects bugging us. ;)
Don't forget to bring your OFF!® Deep Woods DRY Insect Repellent when hiking, camping, fishing or when working around your own yard!

Patriotic Table For Two

July 01, 2019
 Fourth of July is almost here and even though I'm not planning on doing a big celebration, I always like to decorate a room or set a table for the occasion.

Yesterday's gorgeous evening motivated me to set a table for two in a little corner of our deck. The kids were gone and while the mister prepared dinner (something that doesn't happen frequently), I got busy getting all my red, white and blue decor out.
