I have seen some vintage dish and plate flowers on Pinterest and thought making my own from some inexpensive Dollar Tree glassware and glass paint would add a pop of pizazz to my yard this Spring. These are so easy to make and it is really hard to screw it up. You don’t need to have painting experience to make this garden art. Just a few swooshes with a paint brush and some glue and you are all set.
Back in September I hosted a State Pride Tour with a bunch of other DIY bloggers. It was seriously so much fun creating a project that culminates the place you call home. I decided to tackle another Indiana project that honors Indiana farming. One of the main crops in Indiana is soybeans. In fact Indiana ranks 4th overall in soybean production. Did you know that Plaid makes Soy paint? My guess is – many of those beans came right here from my great state.
Okay I am going to be honest. In the 7 months that I have been dieting I don’t think there has been a day that has went by that I haven’t had some sort of sweet. If you told me I had to give up chocolate or sweets for life I would say “Shoot me now!” I am dead serious. While I have been trying to change my eating habits and bring in more fruits and veggies and less processed filler food I am no where near ready to give up my small treat a day, and I am not sure I ever will.
Painting a room is probably one of my least favorite things to do when it comes to DIY projects. It is just so monotonous and usually, in my case, messy. I am always looking for ways to make it more efficient and cleaner. Of course, a high quality paint goes a long way in making it easier. However, I have found a tool that makes the rolling go faster. Painters will tell you that dipping the roller back into the rolling tray is about 1/3 of your time. What if you could eliminate the back and forth? Well HomeRight has come up with a handy dandy invention to do just that.
