Growing up in Northern Ontario Canada it seemed it was a right of passage to learn to cross country ski, among other winter activities. I learned at a young age and my whole family enjoyed the sport throughout the years. Cross country skis have come a long way since the 70s. My own family now has taken up cross country skiing, but the skis of my childhood have remained up in the rafters in my mom's basement all these years. So I decided to give them new life.
I'm the type of person that enjoys doing things easy, I'm kind of always in a hurry. So, when I was looking up faux rusting techniques, I was disappointed that most of them use harsh chemicals () and can take up to 24-48 hours which is also a no. So, as I so often do, I did it my own way- fast and easy.

A friend of mine creates custom tumblers and uses this interesting paint technique. So I told her I think it would look cool on furniture as well. So she lent me an end table that she had lying around to experiment on. Boy, am I happy with the results. It's so easy and I honestly am excited to keep practicing and trying this more and more.
It's a bit embarrassing the amount of packages we get delivered to our house at the moment. It doesn't help that most shops are shut in the UK for safety reasons. I do recycle most of the cardboard but I also keep a bit back for crafting. Last year I made a Scandinavian inspired Christmas garland (see here). This year I thought I'd make some 3D ornaments for the tree.
With just a couple of simple ingredients and a little elbow grease, you can remove the unsightly black ring of lime scale that forms in your toilet bowl. This really works! All you need to do is pour some borax and vinegar into the water in the bowl. Let it sit for a while and then use your muscles and some sandpaper to remove it! No more ugly ring! Just a bright shiny toilet bowl! Use a foam sanding tool with a fine grit so you won't scratch the porcelain. What a difference!
Well, this is one time that I really should have taken a few pictures. Argh!! What I mean is that I should have been paying attention to the “before” instead of racing towards the “after” without capturing everything that happened in between. But, in short, my powder room bath light fixture...circa 1990s.... was beyond its prime.
I have had the same Christmas wreath for five years now and I have wanted to change it the past two years. I decorate Christmas trees (as a side job) and I have a ton of left over ornaments that just sit in a bin in case I need them. I finally decided to do something about it! This is not an original idea but it definitely turned out so fun that I wanted to share.
Thanksgiving is going to look a bit different this year, but I have to say that I can’t wait for turkey, sweet potato casserole, and pecan pie. Yes, I know that it is controversial, but I do not like pumpkin pie. Now that it is out there we can move on to Rainbow Ribbon Turkey Decorations for Thanksgiving because y’all know I love everything rainbow! And if your ribbon stash is a mess, like mine, scroll down for a fabulous ribbon organizer and dispenser.

When I purchased my home a few years ago I was excited for the large open space that the room offered for entertaining. The wall between the dining room and living room had been removed many years ago by a previous owner. Shortly after moving in, we removed the awkward cabinets that were dangling from the ceiling between the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen, dining room, and living room were all one big open space. Time and again I told my self that this layout was PERFECT for ...
We recently created a faux fireplace mantel surround for our bedroom. I wanted to achieve a layered, chippy paint finish and vintage look. What I wasn’t quite sure about, was the technique I wanted to use to get that distressed, chippy appearance. After doing some research, I found bits and pieces from each technique that I could use for my own look.After making adjustments, I finally came up with a process that worked for my needs.
