Looking back for inspiration









I wish I had some new fresh DIY projects or a great makeover to show , I don't , so let revisit some former makeovers I would surely do again like making a door into a chalkboard



Perhaps you are ready to tackle recessed paneling you can start here

How about a chair makeover , see how I took a curbside chair and made it new

If you haven't already found your issue of Flea Market Style I finally grabbed one today at Chapters in Burlington Ontario. Hopefully you have or they will have it at a Chapters near you.
Congrats on your mention!
Have a great weekend.

You are a genius! I've been reading your blog for a month or so and you come up with the best ideas. I've never commented but after looking at the recessed panels I just had to say "Bravo", what a great idea and a money saver too! I can't wait to try out some of your cool stuff....love the blackboard thing too...so the fridge doesn't look like Roseanne's!!

Chris .. no wonder ... there can't be a surface you haven't touched or a project you haven't tackled. I'm am always amazed how busy you are.

Time to sit back and enjoy all you've done.

I'm sure it won't take long for you to find inspiration.

I wanted to see what a desk skirt would look like because I wanted to do something similar in my daughter's room and didn't know if it would turn out. I am not doing it to hide cords so much as give her a little "fort" (her desk is really just a table, so it is perfect for a fort). Thank you for letting me see how great it can look!
