A Fancy Place to Play Dress Up!

Like almost all projects I embark on, this one started the same way. I buy something with no plan in mind...then said item actually is the beginning of a huge domino effect of things needed to complete a whole project that wasn't even planned when I first picked up the item in the store. I swear this is what happens all the time. Like last week...we initially were just looking for a new front door handle to and rekey the other outside doors to match and somehow we ended up coming home with hundreds of dollars worth of door knobs for the whole house! Anyway..enough rambling.....more

Refabbed! Playroom Lamp

After DIY'ing some fun new orange tables for the playroom in our house I needed a new lamp. I wanted something inexpensive since there was a strong possibility it might have toys, books, or even my child flying through the air at it! After my research revealed that what I had in mind would be out of my price range I headed to goodwill and took the DIY route instead of buying brand new.  Check out the rest and see if you can tell the difference between $100+ lamps and mine $24 refab!http://www.chknscratch.blogspot.com/2013/08/refabbed-playroom-lamp.html...more
