DIY Upcycled Outdoor Beverage Station

Laura is going to show you how she took an old door and made her own version of a beverage bar station.  Laura can rock the doors.  If you missed last month’s post she made a kitchen herb garden out of an old door.  Check out today’s think outside the box door project.

DIY Child’s Backpack {Sewing Tutorial}

I have teamed up with Online Fabric Store this week to bring you four sewing tutorials using the most beautiful fabric like Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry and Michael Miller. I thought we would start the week with a backpack we made for Kayla’s upcoming school year.  We?  Yes we!  My amazing cousin Lindsay is visiting from Chicago to help with these tutorials.

Piccadilly Earrings {Anthro-Knock-Off}

I am a fan of jewelry.  Not dainty, fine, pretty jewelry.  But the big, gaudy, blingy kind.  When it comes to earrings, the longer the better.  And I adore dangly drop ones.  I fell in love with the $48 Piccadilly Chandelier Earrings from Anthropologie.  So when Michaels challenged me to ReCreate something I decided these pretty chandelier earrings would be just the right project.

Handmade Checkerboard

My kids love Melissa & Doug Wooden Toys.  They are such high quality toys and we always seem to ask for them for gifts.  Each of the sets come with a wood crate that stores the set.  While I love the crates they really could use a top on them in order to make it into our playroom (I am not a fan of pieces everywhere). So what has happened over the years of receiving Melissa & Doug toys is we have amassed a collection of these wood crates.
