Coastal-Inspired Kid’s Table

Coastal Inspired Kid's Table

Do you follow me on Facebook? {You really should.} I share all kinds of little fun things on there that don't make it here, like this little kid's table I found at a local online yard sale FB page a little while back. I had been searching and searching for something sturdy to replace a cheaply made table I had purchased for my son a couple of years ago, and this looked perfect! It was $50, which is more than I wanted to spend but it was solid. It had also lasted through the … [Read more...]

We Don’t Just Sit in our Basements Blogging! {Haven Highlights}

I found this painting at a yard sale for $2: I replaced the painting with chicken wire and added fresh paint to … [Read more...]

Teapot Garden Feature

How to Make this Whimsical Teapot Garden Feature
