DIY Hurricane Lanterns Out of Dollar Store Frames

October 18, 2016

I've been redecorating my dining room but doing so on a very tight budget. Like $100 budget. I can't wait to show you the before and after! For now I'll share this little project that only took me 30 minutes. Just take DOLLAR STORE frames and turn them into this gorgeous hurricane lantern! I used only 5 frames for a total of $5 per lantern! And since I had these frames on hand already I technically spent NOTHING!
See the tutorial below!

Go From Asian Black (Salt and Pepper) to BRONDE and Upkeep

October 3, 2016

For almost a year now I have been a happy ombre "bronde" times moving closer to the "br" than the "onde" and vice versa. Below a pic of me "before". I have read countless tutorials on maintenance and upkeep of "bronde" when going from black- none of which really worked for me.

Recessed Lights DIY

September 27, 2016

I am a Do-It-Yourselfer but honestly there are some projects that are too intimidating to me. Tearing down a wall for example. Repositioning plumbing. I WOULD have included installing recessed lighting on that list but not anymore. With the drop ceiling that I currently had installed in my basement I didn't have to even screw anything in. It was beyond simple and easy. I will admit it was tedious at times but I didn't struggle with the complexity of the project.

DIY Wingback Tufted Headboard

September 20, 2016

I bought the materials to make this headboard months ago. So I guess it's only fitting that when I actually put my mind to do it that it only took me a day. 
I did work for about 7 hours with a lunch break in between which seems like a marathon project but part of the reason it took that long was because I took apart our old headboard to recycle the foam.

IKEA Karlstad Footstool Ottoman Free Pattern

September 13, 2016

Do you have one of these? A Karlstad footstool? Is your slipcover old and crusty? Make a new one for the cost of only 2 yards of fabric! I rarely throw away a piece of IKEA furniture just because the slipcover is dingy. Recently IKEA has begun to phase out the Karlstad collection.
I guess it's inevitable. All good things must come to an end. But that's bad for me since I have a very large IKEA Karlstad sectional and matching ottoman which are structurally just fine but are in desperate need of new covers which IKEA no longer sells.

Wild Flower Pinwheel Shorts Free Pattern

September 6, 2016

I'll probably be making more of these throughout the month in different patterns and alterations. I'm even thinking of maybe doing a mini one in spandex as a cute swim bottom. Get the tutorial and pattern below.

Like I said with the Colbalt Damask version, I love how comfy these are. Though before I used a softer material and it feels more comfy. I used this quilting weight fabric for the Wild Flowers version and it's not as cozy.

Pinwheel Shorts Free Pattern in Cobalt Damask

August 30, 2016

I'm so ready for summer. Walking barefoot. Tee shirts. Tank tops. And SHORTS! Just like uncomfortable jeans, there are uncomfortable shorts. The kind that hurt your lady parts. Sorry to be blunt but you know what I mean!

 I like wearing elastic, loose-legged shorts in the summer but I don't like looking as though I'm wearing men's boxers. I want cute shorts that I can wear to the grocery store! Kayaking. Even dare say, a casual summer dinner party. You too? Well look no further I think I found the shorts for us!
