Simple Halloween Soap Dispenser

Simple Halloween Soap Dispenser

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a super simple way to turn an ordinary soap dispenser into something boo-rific! I shared this on my friend, Mandy's blog last week and I thought you might enjoy it too. I started with a bottle of Dial Gold hand soap. This was 88¢ at Walmart: I peeled off the labels. They will not likely peel off and leave a nice clean smooth surface. But, I used De-solv-it citrus scented adhesive remover to remove the residual adhesive, which took all of two minutes. (I've … [Read more...]

Picture Updated with French Graphics

Hey everyone! If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen the goodies I found on my first official yard saling day this season. Can you believe I have been able to hold myself back this long??

I have stopped by a couple of yard sales here and there on the way to where I was supposed to be going, but this was my first day of saying, "To heck with it!" and setting out to shop for bargains!

How to Add Glass to Cabinet Doors

How to Add Glass to Cabinet Doors

  Hi friends! I recently shared my kitchen makeover, and I had several requests to share how I replaced the raised panels on my kitchen cabinets with glass. Adding glass to just one set of cabinets had the biggest impact in my kitchen. This project was a lot easier than I expected, but I have to admit that cutting out those panels requires a little bit of guts.  Although I did mine a little differently in the end, I got my courage from Kristin from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia. … [Read more...]
