Wood & Burlap Natural Fall Wreath
Sometimes there is nothing better than a project that is easy and simple and that you love in the end.
That is the case with my wood and burlap natural fall wreath I made today.
Truly, it could not have been easier.
Quick and Easy DIY Console Table
Yesterday, I went shopping for a table. I am not sure what I was thinking. What was the likelihood of me finding a table about 34'” tall, 22” wide and only about 8” deep? Oh, and in a rustic wood finish too.
So, instead, I decided (okay, hubby did most of this one) to build a DIY console table that was “just right”.
You see, I was working on another project, and I just felt like I needed a little something in this small space. This is the cabinet that houses our refrigerator, but as you can see, the door to the deck is right there as well. And my sweet hubby offered to make me one.
And for that, I was very happy.
The good part about the door being right there is that it makes for the perfect amount of light for some plants – which I hopefully do not kill.
So You want to Build a snowman- Galvanized Snowman
Have you seen Frozen?
Didn’t Olaf make a great movie even better?
If you didn’t see it, Olaf is the snowman sidekick.
And then there is the song…
“Do you want to build a snowman…”
Well we did, but we decided to build a galvanized snowman.

Ikea Hack Craft Table (& Craft Paint Storage!)
When we started out reworking our office space to also be a crafting space, I knew I wanted a craft table to work at.
I already had an Ikea tabletop that I had been using as my desk, so I decided it was the perfect project for an Ikea hack craft table.
We have a limited floor plan for the amount of things I wanted to use this space for, but I had planned it out so that this table would fit in this corner by the railing. This area is open to the family room and kitchen below.
Easy DIY Built In Desk Tutorial
This post is sponsored by The Home Depot, however all opinions are my own.
Cue the horns and strike up the band.
Our built in desk is finally done!
And although it looks complicated, this project is really made up of building a few basic boxes and stock cabinets all being joined together with plywood tops.
We made it fit to our wall space, but the same concept could be recreated to any size space.
And as with any project, with the right tools for the job - anything can happen!
Fall Decorating: Updated Kitchen Garden
The reality is, this year, our garden challenged us greatly.
We battled too much rain and an attack of squash bugs.
When I started to think about our fall decorating, I knew I wanted to take the few pumpkins and gourds that made it and display them proudly.
Our kitchen garden is right outside of our kitchen and visible from all parts of the kitchen and the family room, so I decided it would be the perfect place for us to enjoy the fruits of my husband’s labor (he really took the lead on the garden this year).
