    vintage wooden ladder redo

    In the summer Jared and I went a little crazy with making things and doing some furniture updates. So far I’ve shared the school desk we turned into a chalkboard desk, and the ombre dresser that we retrieved from the local thrift store and now resides in our entrance but there are still a few things we did that I haven’t shared yet! This one is possibly my favorite one of the summer. We happened to see a garage sale sign as we were leaving our house one day and decided to stop in (although our garage was already full of projects by this point), but boy, am I glad…

    “I’m watching Store Tory. And it have Buzz.”

    I find Raeca’s little word/sentence mix ups to be the cutest thing ever. A few weeks ago at supper we were going over words she used to (or still does) say incorrectly; raccoon = rack-ca-coon, elephant = ef-a-lant, and by the time we got to helicopter she was onto us. She thought for a minute and then said “airplane”. Smart girl. I seem to think I will always remember these cute things but I already have forgotten a few of them. I got this idea off of Pinterest and had to photograph Raeca with a couple of her most recent words/sentences. I hope to continue to do this in the…

    diy chalkboard desk

    A few weeks ago I snagged these two school desks up for a good price and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with one of them. I loved the idea of what my friend Jade did last year with her desk – some spray paint and a chalkboard top! Of course Raeca had to weigh in and said the desk had to be none other than: pink (I always said if I had a little girl she wasn’t going to be all decked out in pink but God must have thought it would be funny to give me a girl that loves pink because that’s what I got! Thankfully I’m…

    diy wooden slat verse sign

    I’ve been sharing a bit lately on the verses I’ve been praying for Raeca (you can see some here and more here). I knew I couldn’t just have the verses written down but I needed some type of visual reminder -at least for a few of them. So I’ve designed up three and have put them up in my Etsy shop in case there is anyone else that would like them as visual reminders. I didn’t want to just print each of them out as 8×10’s, I wanted to do something kind of special with at least one of them and was able to come up with this wooden slat…

    peach-orange ombre dresser

    We’ve really been on a furniture restoration kick around here lately. It’s been weeks since we were able to park our van in the garage thanks to all the projects we’ve got going on in there (in the garage, not the van). 🙂 Jared had a week off a while ago so it was time for his first visit to our local thrift store -with how many times Rae and I have been in there I can hardly believe he hadn’t visited sooner. When we entered the shop we saw this beauty waiting for us. I was instantly drawn to her. She’s not real wood which I kind of like,…

    a little herb planter diy

    With this transition to a gluten-free kitchen I’ve been doing a lot more baking and cooking completely from scratch. The menu planning process goes something like this: Okay, I want to make a nice tender roast in the slower cooker. This recipe calls for soy sauce and onion soup mix. We’ve already got the gluten-free soy sauce but what about onion mix, is it gluten-free? {Commence Googling.} Okay, so it’s not gluten-free. {Start searching on Pinterest for a recipe for gluten-free onion mix.} Okay, found a recipe but now I have to find dehydrated onion flakes, where does one find those in the store? . . .  For the most part I’m…
