I decided to create a simple beautiful rain chain the second I found the galvanized pails at a garage sale. I absolutely love rain chains. The cost held me back from buying one, two, or even three of them premade. I guess you could easily say that I really have wanted one for a long time. It doesn’t rain often here so I never could justify buying them for the sheer beauty of them.
Kristen asked for help hanging decorations and objects on the wall at her home. She is having a hard time finding studs to secure the heavy pictures and decorations on the wall. Together, we decided installing a decorative board around the room would be perfect so she could put her decorations anywhere on the wall and know they would be anchored well.
I set out to sew a warm beautiful robe for a young man. The young man just happens to be my wonderful grandson, Michael.
My wish is to sew something that he could enjoy on Christmas morning and hopefully a lot of cool mornings after Christmas. Sometimes it is hard to make something that a child enjoys but Michael is an easy child. He loves almost everything but its hard to keep his clothes on him at this stage of his young life.
My grandson, Michael loves John Deere. In my mind, there is nothing better than a John Deere Car seat organizer. I made the car seat cover to protect the back of the car seat from Michael’s shoes, while keeping Michael’s toys and books organized in the car.
I have not yet developed superior sewing skills but I enjoy the simple projects. I am trying to motivate myself to practice sewing, so my skills improve. Do you understand this feeling? Maybe you don’t have enough time for large scale sewing because you are just too busy. I know the feeling.
I love a rock garden with wet look rocks. The glossy look is so pretty and much more inviting than dusty old rocks. I placed the rocks under the bow windows about five years ago. The rocks were buried by dirt over the years. I wanted non-plant material under the bow windows so we wouldn’t have to have grass there that needed watering. The problem was that the sprinklers would get the bow windows wet and they were becoming damaged by the water. So, my solution was to remove the grass with the dirty rocks and install a rock garden, so we would not need sprinklers there.
Hello everyone. I hope your day is going fine, wherever you are. I have looked for a movable door for my patio door openings for a while and decided I just need to make one myself… so here it is for you! Please ask if you have any questions on the project.
I’m creating a mosaic door from a single french door using dollar store glass beads and Gallery Glass, which creates a faux stained glass effect. This is an outside door which I will roll around for use between one of two door opening on my patio. Two walls of the house make up two sides of the patio. Barn doors make up the third side of the patio and the fourth side is a large glass garage door.
Furthermore, I will post on the large barn doors soon for you.
Kristen’s plain glass french door is in need of a transformation since she desires a beautiful faux stained glass french door. This project is frugal, while being fun. The door, located between the family room and office, does not allow much privacy for work.
