Cozy Throws for Cuddling this Winter (My Favourite Amazon Finds)

Throws

I write this post as I’m wrapped up in a cozy throw. If you’re like me, you’re always cold (brrrrrr). It doesn’t seem to matter what time of year it is, I love being wrapped up in a big and warm blanket – but who doesn’t? Like honestly! Being a Canadian girl means cold Falls and even colder Winters. We have been pretty lucky this year so far, we had our first snow flurry this week (though it blew away in some crazy wind), and it hasn’t been crazy cold yet. The last few days have been in the negatives, […]

Simple Storage Solutions For Home Office Organization

Simple Storage Solutions

Organization has always been something that I love in my life. There are so many ways to become organized, whether it be by hiring someone, or organizing yourself. Sometimes your whole home needs an overhaul and sometimes it’s just that one messy room. I’ve come across some great storage solutions to keep your home office organized. Currently I don’t have a room dedicated as a home office, but instead until the house is finished, I’ve been using a little corner in my bedroom. It’s definitely not ideal, but there are ways to make organization a breeze! I’m not going to […]

How To Transform Galvanized Metal To Get The Aged Look

Galvanized Metal

I’ve been seeing a lot of the aged galvanized metal planters around recently. I love this idea, so I went on to make my own. I had to do a bit of research to see what was used to age the metal. It wasn’t too long before I found a few different ways to do it, but one that didn’t take much at all! Lysol toilet bowl cleaner! This ages the metal very well without using a bunch of harsh chemicals like I was finding! I found a galvanized metal bucket at the dollar store for a buck! Such a […]

Thrift Store Furniture Refresh (The Chair I Bought For $5)

Thrift Store Chair Makeover

I was recently included in a wonderful group all about furniture refreshes! Each month we tackle a furniture project in need of a little bit of love and give it a makeover based on that months theme. The month of May we completed a project piece using stain. When it comes to thrifting, I’m fairly new. I still won’t always see the full potential in a piece until after I’ve walked by and then back again. This piece was no different. It was at the last store that I walked around that I found the piece I could give some […]

How To Choose The Right Paint Finish For Your Home

Painting can be a big job, and if you don’t do it right, it can become an even bigger job. I have come to find that picking out paint is actually a bigger job than what it seems. I figured that with needing to do a little bit of painting, all I would have to do it walk into my local hardware store, pick a paint colour and walk out with a gallon of paint and a few paint rollers. Boy was I wrong! Choosing the paint colour was the easy part, it was picking the finish that was the […]

7 Brilliant Ways To Re-Purpose Old Light Bulbs

Light Bulbs

A light bulb is one item I never have extra of laying around the house.

Who needs an old burnt out light bulb anyway? I’ve seen a lot of great ways to re-purpose old light bulbs recently and I had to share these ideas with you all! I’m definitely going to be trying some of these ideas as soon as I […]

Super Simple Moss Covered Bunny

Moss Bunny

Making your own decor is not as hard as you might think. There are great perks to it, and the biggest of those is saving hundred of dollars on something that you see at the store that you could create on your own for a fraction of the price. My super simple moss covered bunny was one of those ideas. I didn’t specifically see a moss covered bunny in any store – that I can remember anyways – but I did happen to come across a couple of bunnies at my local Dollar Store that really needed a makeover. With […]
