From Funky Birdhouse to Fabulous Bird Feeder

We had a funky birdhouse high on a pole in the back of our home left by the previous owners.  I’ve looked at it for months now trying to figure out what to do with it.  Since no birds were using it, I decided to make it into a DIY bird feeder that birds would […]

Vintage Tool Box Makeover (2)

I inherited my great uncle Mac’s old wooden tool box.  He made this wooden box over 100 years ago and used it every day!  I’ve seen similar boxes in antique stores being sold “as is”.  I didn’t want to leave it “as is” because, frankly, it was worn pretty badly.  Rather, I wanted to make […]

Awesome Gift Ideas Made from Trash DIY Inspired

They always say that when giving a gift, it’s the thought that counts. And while I do believe that to a certain extent, I also don’t like giving (or getting) a present just because it was expected. I love things that have thought behind them, even if it’s a an owl pen from the dollar […]

Upcycled Gate Garden

From Old Forgotten Gates to New Plant Holders! Aren’t these upcycled garden gates pretty?

Outdoor Projects You Can DIY for Almost Nothing

I was staring out my kitchen window the other day and saw a few outdoor projects I had made for literally a few dollars total.
