If you’re a big Pinterest fan (or maybe even if you are not) you may have seen the sharpie on ceramic DIY craze? The projects were quite impressive — and if you have nice handwriting, this could totally be great giftable!  I wanted to try my paw hand at it…here’s what I came up with:

Dryer Sheets

I was definitely a hoarder in my past life. Like without a doubt, I needed an intervention. I’m sure I only hoarded the finest things though, like avocados, diamonds and silver spray paint. That’s the life! I love to repurpose things. Anything that has potential for another use, really.  Exhibit A: dryer sheets I use

Little Changes In The Kitchen

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with Target.  Or maybe it is — in which case, now the cat’s out of the bag.   I love a good Sunday afternoon perusing the aisles. (By the way, have you seen the new Threshold line?  Too cute! So many goodies!) I recently saw these ladies on the

My future mother and father-in-law (the current Mr. and Mrs. Wolf) sent me flowers this week — so sweet!  The flowers were a large bouquet of purple and yellow tulips.  I love fresh flowers around the house, and this was a great surprise!Remember how I keep flowers longer through DIY flowers?  Although I’m not a florist

There are many things I question with respect to builders’ decisions about where to splurge and where to save when constructing a new building. But one thing that gets me every time: overhead lighting. Why so scarce, sir?  Many an apartment lacks overhead lighting in rooms other than the bathroom and kitchen. In our apartment

OMG totally joking.  I’m literally the furthest thing from artist who has ever lived.  Ever!  I have big dreams when it comes to DIY projects. Sometimes I recognize the impossibility of my plans, other times not. This would be a not.  Do you remember our bedroom lamp installation? Well, there’s a very large painting centered

My soon-to-be father-in-law is a jack of all trades. Though not a professional handyman, he is a skilled craftsman and is my go-to for home improvement questions.  A project that’s been on my to-do list for a while is installing soft closures for our kitchen cabinets. Soft closures are additions added to existing hinges which

A few months ago, I saw this pin on my beloved Pinterest and really wanted to recreate silver coffee beans. Remember my coffee bean makeup brush holders? What can I say? I’m big on the bean!  After doing a little more research – as in, clicking the picture and being redirected to the link – I noticed

Lacquered Boxes

I was at Gracious Home last month and noticed this lacquered beauty for $90. Pretty? Yes. Worth the money? Unlikely. I was Inspired by the DIY lacquer box featured on Centsational Girl’s blog. And, as a lover of shiny things, I thought I’ll try my hand at that, too.  This was not a typical studio project.  There was

A Gussied Toilet Tank

Let’s talk about the toilet tank, shall we?  Since I have already welcomed you into our master bathroom a few too many times, I figured why not once more?  There was the DIY stereo, the bathroom stripes and now the toilet tank! Are you someone who tops the toilet tank?  I think that’s a girl thing for sure.  You
