No Sew Wall Hanging Under $10 – DIY

At times, I must admit that my inability to sew makes me feel like a DIY phony. But when I find short-cuts (ways to avoid sewing), I can't help but get a little giddy...like I am somehow cheating the system. Today I feel like a real damn rebel, because I am going to show you how I made this woven wall hanging without sewing. What is even better...I made it for under $10 (take that Urban Outfitters). For your convenience, I…

Faith It Til You Make It

For most of my twenties, I was lost in possibility. So many hobbies and career paths piqued my interest, but I tended to burn out not long into my pursuit. A common request in my prayers and meditation was to recognize what I was put on this earth to do. It was my mission to find a passion/talent that I could capitalize on. When I unexpectedly became pregnant with my first son, I assumed that was God telling me to put aside myself…

No-Sew Fabric Shibori Planter DIY

You know that term crazy cat lady? Well, I think I am becoming the crazy indoor plant lady.Today, I am sharing a super cheap and easy way to beautify ugly, plastic pots ....no sewing or skill required. It started out innocently enough. My husband was at the hardware store (or as my three-year-old refers to as the Hogware store). He called  to ask if there was anything I needed. My husband is certainly well-trained, because I always have some obscure request. This time,…

DIY Centerpiece Using Upcycled Thrift Swag

Today I wanted to share a simple and cheap centerpiece tutorial. Given the weekend I had,  I was definitely in the mood for cheap and easy. You see, this weekend was quite the  shit show. In the midst of a mudroom remodel and  complete deck and fence demo/build ( a $30,000 surprise),  we found out our pool has rusted through ...basically beyond repair because the genius who installed it back-filled it with dirt and left metal debris against the walls of…

DIY Mid-Century Modern Plant Stand with Wood Legs

One of my goals for the new year is to incorporate more greenery into my home decor- not only because plants have air-purifying properties, but  because Pantone has declared green to be the color of 2017. I am super excited to share this mid-century modern plant stand I made for around $10.... 1/10th of what most retailers will charge you (ahem West Elm!). I had never given much thought to plant stands until my husband brought home a Bird of Paradise (  Move over fiddle…
