Front Yard Garden Tour

Hello lovely Friends! Did anyone bust out the mixer and make cupcakes after Tuesday's post ha ha! :D I'm back today with my Décor Enthusiast girls sharing all things outdoors for this month's décor challenge! I am sharing my outdoor space in the front of my house, since I needed to get it in gear for Spring anyway! I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I use. About five years ago, we totally redid our front yard space. You can see the full makeover HERE, but … [Read more...]

Patio Set Makeover {Outdoor Décor Design Challenge}

Hi Friends! The rain has finally given us a break around here, thank goodness, and my back patio furniture has been desperately crying out for a redo...just in time for this month's Design Challenge: Outdoor Décor! Seriously, I think I hear it sobbing in the middle of the night, ya'll. Take a look at what it was looking like after the neglect of Winter: See what I'm talking about. Ew. The cushions covers are about two years past due. That rug is just pitiful, and the umbrella was a … [Read more...]

DIY Standing Outdoor Plant Hanger

Outdoor Glider Bench Makeover

Hi lovely friends! I told you the other day that I've been spending several days working outdoors and today I'm sharing a project that was very much overdue. I purchased this outdoor glider bench about six or seven years ago: Isn't it just pitiful? I covered the cushions once before about three years ago, and it was time to do it again! I've included affiliate links so you can find the products I used. Here's my new and improved outdoor glider bench now: Doesn't it look brand … [Read more...]

How to Turn a Drawer Front into a Planter

Are you one of those people whose eyes scan every curbside trash pile in hopes of finding a potential treasure? That's me! I can't not slow down and ogle at what has been left for the taking.  But asking my Hubby to slow down for said curbside trash pile is like asking him to donate one of his eyeballs. Seriously! Friends, we've made it to thrifty transformation #17, and today I bring you...a rescue from the trash pile! My Hubby did stop for me after I pleaded that this particular piece I … [Read more...]

The Perfect Necklace Holder

Hello lovely Friends and welcome back!  Are we really on day #9 already?  I've got a small makeover for you today, but big on function! I found this next piece at the thrift store for $6, but it was originally from TJ Maxx according to the tag on the bottom. Here it is as I found it: It was probably used for coats if I had to guess. Kind of a cool piece, right? The color wasn't very pretty though. It looks like wood, but it was faux. So I decided to give it a little … [Read more...]

When I was deciding what I wanted to create to share for my holiday sign, I remembered I already had the perfect project all wrapped up and ready to go!  I first shared this last year, but my blog was brand new, so it was probably only seen by a about ten people, thanks to my family and friends :)  Enjoy! The most important component of … [Read more...]
