Recovering a Glider

  I have been diligently working on the nursery since finding out we are expecting our first child.  It can be very overwhelming, not to mention expensive, so I have tried to save wherever possible.  In my frugal conquest, I found this lovely glider on Craigslist for $50.00, which normally retails for $150 or more.  Obviously the cushions needed to … Continue reading

So basically we’ve been married since August 2nd and apparently we didn’t waste any time getting pregnant!  I am starting to document my bump as it is finally trying to make an appearance, however, some days I just feel more chubby than pregnant, lol.  They say that’s normal and I’m sure in no time I’ll have a bigger-than-life bump.  So … Continue reading

When my husband and I made the decision to purchase a house prior to our nuptials, we had a lot to learn about each other and what each person values in a home.  Being new homeowners together and newly engaged brought many challenges regarding the division of labor. It frustrated us both that we had different ideas of what constitutes a … Continue reading

The garage received a lot of unexpected praise and attention at our garage sale last weekend, so I decided to share my organized garage journey.  This journey, and post, is really long, so bear with me.  Garage organization became increasingly more important for us as we tackled additional DIY projects. Realistically, about half the “junk” in the garage was contributed … Continue reading

Installing Front Door Glass

On the journey to a newly painted front door, one of the panels of leaded glass decided to break.  Fortunately, they were tempered glass so there are no injuries to report (and I secretly wanted to replace them anyway…). After some diligence and some plywood to cover the hole in our door for a week, I was able to install … Continue reading

Laundry Room Organization

As seen on: A couple weeks ago I finished solving a major problem in our laundry room when I installed our Dryerbox.  I love the added space it gives us.  Our laundry room isn’t really anything special; it was built with enough space for a washer, dryer, and some shelving…and that’s it!  Of course, I wasn’t satisfied with it and I … Continue reading

While organizing our laundry room I realized we didn’t need as much clothes hanging space as the builder allotted, but we did need more shelving space. The builder gave us two sections of hanging space and one was situated right over the washer, which for us, that 2 feet of space was just unnecessary when we had an additional hanging … Continue reading
