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 […]

I love IKEA and I love a good IKEA hack even more! I’ve recently moved homes, and have started decorating my sons room (of course his room has to be done first!) I’ve been going for an industrial theme – of course a lot of DIY involved here as industrial decor costs a fortune! His […]

DIY Inspired Patio Makeover

Succulent Centerpiece for Patio

When we first bought this house, we knew that one of the first things we had to fix was the patio. It ALMOST didn’t pass inspection, as it leaned a little bit and the wood was rotted. We ended up hiring a contractor to do it. You can see the process and my tips for […]

We have lived in this house for about three years. When we first moved in, our mail box looked like this. Since our last name isn’t O’Brian, we purchased a new one and replaced it. A couple short years later, it was already time for a mailbox makeover, 1) because the “new” one already faded […]
