Paint Your Upholstery Fabric and Upcycle a Old Chair!

I had something else planned to show you today, but this awesome weekend project got bumped to the top of the list because I just love how it turned out.

How to Paint Oak Stairs (Without Sanding First!)

Sometimes I want to kick myself for not starting this blog 7 and a half years ago (about the time that hubby and I moved into our house).  I could have written over a dozen DIY posts for you like how to install hardwood floors, tiles and trim, swap light fixtures, install new faucets, painting tips, wallpaper, ...

I originally wanted to spend today in my backyard enjoying some warm air and sun, and yet once again the lovely Maine weather decided it'd prefer to turn cold. I can't say I'm upset though, because it gave me a chance to get started on one of a two Mother's Day cards for two special mom's in my life. I know Mother's Day is a little bit away, but I knew I needed to get a start on it now because the next time I close my eyes it'll already be May. Time seems to be flying now,  and even though I would've loved to spend time outdoors, this cold air helped whip me into crafting mode....more
