My friend, Rose, who got the farmhouse dining room table, decided she also wanted a farmhouse bench to go with it! We modeled the bench off of the plans for the table, using the same 4x4s for legs and the same 2x6s for the top. It really was just a miniature version of the table!Continue reading “Farmhouse Bench”

Sherwin Williams Debonair 9139 Paint
The last color we used in our house was in my son’s room. He picked out the color, and selected a medium blue/gray color. His room had the most marks on the wall (thanks to him constantly throwing balls around and thumb-tacking basketball posters all over the place!)… so not only does the color lookContinue reading “Sherwin Williams Debonair 9139 Paint”
DIY Barn Door Kit
My friend, Rose, and her hubby, Todd, have done some really cool DIY projects in their house. (Remember the half-bath and dining room redos?) They wanted to add a barn door in place of their normal pantry door. They had the perfect spot for it! They purchased a barn door kit from Amazon. Rose wantedContinue reading “DIY Barn Door Kit”
How to Spray Bleach a Shirt
My daughter played in a big basketball tournament this summer, and wanted a tournament t-shirt as a souvenir. You know those things aren’t cheap. 😉 She decided to clean her bathroom in it one day, and got a few bleach spots on the front. They were way too obvious to be able to wear itContinue reading “How to Spray Bleach a Shirt”
Easy Board & Batten
Another quarantine project Stephen and I attempted was adding board and batten in our kitchen’s breakfast nook! We did a lot of research on the best way to install the wood pieces, and figured out a very easy way to make it happen. I started off by painting all of the pieces of wood outside.Continue reading “Easy Board & Batten”

DIY Fruit Fly Trap
We recently got some freshly-picked fruit (versus grocery store fruit), which was DELICIOUS!!!!… but we have had fruit flies ever since! I have used this simple trick to trap fruit flies, and I wanted to share.

Front Porch Twin-Sized Bed Swing!
My new favorite project!!!! Our friend contacted us about making her a wooden porch bed swing. She had seen them all over Facebook Marketplace but wanted us to do it. Stephen actually bought plans online to show him how to make a really sturdy frame from plankandpillow.com. He used a variety of 2x4s, 2x3s, 1x3s,Continue reading “Front Porch Twin-Sized Bed Swing!”
Painting an Interior Door (and its Trim!)
I have fallen in love with the color Oyster Bay by Sherwin Williams. I used it in our bedroom, along with the lighter shades of it in our bathroom and guest room. I had an almost-full gallon of it left, and thought… it would look realllllly good on our mudroom entry door. So I decidedContinue reading “Painting an Interior Door (and its Trim!)”
