I'm so glad you're here today. Today's post is a video from one of my favorite woodworkers / artists, Jon Peters.
Before my husband and I starting building our own furniture, we found Jon on You Tube and started watching his videos each week. And guess what, we still watch his videos together each week - they are so educational for us, but also interesting and entertaining!
Hey everyone! I’m Shara from the DIY blog Woodshop Diaries and I am excited to be guest posting for Courtney today!
I am a full time engineer at a factory and build furniture and write tutorials for my blog on the side. Sometimes people think I must build and blog full time. Or sometimes people just assume that since it’s an “on the side gig” it must just be a hobby.
Are there any misconceptions people have about greyhounds?
One of the misconceptions about retired racers is that they are aggressive dogs because most people have only seen photos of greyhounds racing with muzzles covering their faces. The muzzles are used to help protect racing greyhounds from injury and to determine the winners of close races.
Okay friends, we are approaching one year since we started this mess. I’m praying we are done by Halloween. I mean, an entire year of having our house a mess? (Insert the monkey emoji with his hands over his face.)
Sometimes picking a chandelier is overwhelming. There are SO many options. I mean, you can go to your local hardware store and choose from the ones they have (sometimes they do have really nice ones) or you can explore other places.
Remember a few months weeks ago I posted about these DIY open shelves? A lot of you told me you loved the idea of simple open shelving and it’s something you’ve wanted to do in your home for a while. BINGO! I love it. Keep sending me photos of your open shelves, I love to see them!
Hi friends! I'm so glad you're here. I can't tell you enough how thankful I am for your support and love. Our sweet boy turned three years old over the weekend. Yes we had a small celebration, and yes I'm going to share it with you - in a few days! You won't want to miss it because a) it's super fun, and b) I'm sharing the cutest things I got for the pups and where you can get your own! As for today, in honor of our birthday boy, I'm sharing my letter of gratitude.
You don’t realize just how much you appreciate ‘home’ until you’re not there for a few days.
While at home on normal days, we tend to get stressed out with the fact that our houses aren’t perfect. We always have things we’d like to change or update. There’s always cleaning to be done. Laundry. Oh laundry.
Every year we say we’re going to plant a garden - and then we don’t. Sound familiar to anyone?
It sounds wonderful and all, but honestly, there’s a lot about planting that I don’t know. I am on level 1 of planting if there is such thing. Buy a plant, get some dirt, find an empty pot and go to town. Maybe add some water and plant food as well.
This has sure been a long process. A lot of ups and downs. I think the question I get the most is would I do this all over again. When this kitchen is finally done I will do an overview of everything from start to finish.
But, today you’re in luck! We’ve had our appliances for about 8 months now. I feel like that’s a good amount of time to get to know each other, right?
If you’re in the market a new appliance (or kitchen gadget), you’ll want to stay a while. Today, I'm giving you my honest opinions. All the pros and cons.
I love to make a room or a space in a house special. I mean, there’s just something wonderful about a room that is full of pieces with a story.
If you come into our home, we could spend all day chatting about the pieces of furniture we built (or the projects we DIYed), why we decided to build them, and some funny stories to go along with them. Or about the gorgeous antique pieces I found while ‘junking’.
That reminds me of AOL - those were the good ol’ days. Did anyone else instantly think of that?
Unfortunately (or fortunately) the days of AOL are gone. Please tell me you're not still on AOL. But, we are still getting snail mail. Let’s be honest, most of the mail we get these days is junk. Every once in awhile, we will receive a sweet card from a family member or an actual invitation to a party. These things are exciting, who doesn’t love the anticipation of what’s inside that envelope?
You know what I’m talking about. The one that is overprotective of her dogs. The one that has a routine laid out for them. The one that calls and checks in every hour when they are left with someone else.
I feel like it was just yesterday I was getting ready to graduate from college. My family was all there, I was so excited to become a teacher, yet so sad to leave a place I loved and was able to call home for 4 years of my life.
String art has been popular all over the nation. I am seeing string art on Pinterest, parties on Facebook, and events in our area.
Since I wanted something seasonal that had to do with Spring and flowers, I decided to make a mason jar. Now you’re probably wondering what a mason jar has to do with Spring and flowers. Well, let me show you!
