Yesterday, was a fun day! My middle son is updating his room - all by himself! Am I terrified??? No, because he's running everything by me first! And, I have to say - he's doing a great job! He needed a few things from Ikea and, well, I just had to go along! We had a great time! Let's keep it our secret that I shared this photo of him, because he wouldn't be happy - not one bit!
Today I want to show you how to make your own plate rack. This is a great beginner building project.
As I've mentioned here on the blog, Mark and I have been going some some auctions this summer. It's such a fun experience and exciting too when you are in a bidding war over a piece of furniture! I always set a limit in my head and really try not to go over it.
I don't often share Mary & Martha items, but I thought this special sale for TODAY ONLY was one you would like to see! Why, because I love it and the price is right - $15! I've already ordered some for gifts - and of course, one for myself too! Wouldn't this be a great Thanksgiving hostess gift?
The cutting board is small - 12 3/4 x 8", but would be great on your stovetop, to hang on the wall, for cheese & crackers, etc.
The sale is today only and the quantities are limited! Here's the link where you can order!
This is another one of those projects that I really wish I had taken a before photo. The TV stand was broken and laying in pieces on the ground. And, the top shelf was missing! I found it at a salvage place and when I asked about it, the owner asked how much would "He" need to pay "Me" to take it away!! I ended up paying the owner $10 and he generously made a top shelf and put the whole thing back together for me.
When I complete a project, I always have a sense of satisfaction. Sometimes I'm happier with the outcome than others. And, I've had my share of DIY disasters over the years - most of which you won't find here! Today was one of those days that I was giddy with happiness when I put the final brush stroke of paint on this DIY farmhouse tabletop that Mark built and I finished.
