Home is Where…..

I’ve been working on a new project today…… The plaque is from Hobby Lobby (Yay! for them shipping APO) and I first painted it black, and then hand painted the white lettering. Next I sanded it back a little, and then sealed the whole thing with a clear poly. This is only part 1 of…

Patio Rug

Anyone on my Instagram will have already seen these, but I thought I would share progress over here, These pictures are of our new patio rug!  We bought super realistic Astro Turf from the flower market ($125 worth) and used it to make a rug! The rug is weatherproof, has drainage holes, and is designed…

It’s All In The Details….

So I have shown bits and pieces of my front door decor, but I thought I would actually get out the good camera and take decent-ish pictures (I didn’t take the time to edit them and the hallway lighting is bad and windowless) We live in a high rise apartment with a central area on every…
