• Upcycled Bed to Bench Tutorial

    September 11, 2014

    Whether it is nice outside or even a considerable amount too warm or cold to have the windows open, they are. So basically between 59-88 degrees = windows open up in this house. I like the breeze and I like airing out my home. I may want to own four cats but I have no…

    October 10, 2012

    Little by little I am turning this house that I think is OK into a house that I love. I’ve recently lost the “will this negatively affect my resale value?” attitude and replaced that with “who cares if it makes me happy attitude?” Lots of changes are ensuing. My bedroom is one room that has…
