Remodelando la Casa

I'm a stay at home mother of two kids that tired of looking to her outdated house, took matters into her own hands and began transforming it.

That journey introduced me to power tools, woodworking projects galore, decorating, sewing, painting, crafting, you name it, I'm doing it and I'm enjoying it!

Halloween - Thanksgiving Banner

The project today came to life just after finishing my last post ---> the drawer that was turned into a basket, you can check that project right...more

A Repurposed Drawer

One more item lingering in the garage was this drawer, it was a desk's middle drawer, the two towers of drawers on each side of the desk is another project I'm working on. I had no plans for this drawer and I just wanted to take it out of the garage. So, after giving it a good look I decided to turn it into a tray/basket, to be placed on top of a coffee table or on my kitchen island filling it with fruits.The dimensions of the drawer 21" x 19" and especially the how shallow it is, only 3¼" deep, made go for a berry picking basket look, those with a long handle.So, the first thing to do was to clean the drawer pretty well and remove the little thingy to hold pencils and stuff ....more

Make an Easy Tablecloth for any Occasion

It looks like I'm on a train with wooden spools!They follow me. Wherever I am, there they are, or so it looks like.A couple of week ago I went to Hancock Fabrics, I was bringing my daughter to meet some friends and since it was very close to this store, I decided to get in. As usual, I immediately headed to the back of the store for the clearance section.What did I find there? ...more

Fall Decor with DIY Fall Signs

I've been very slowly cleaning up the garage, bringing the tools back to were they belong which is good, because I finally found one measuring tape I really like, I've been looking for it for months! It's the only one I have that gives me the measurements on the fractional read, 1/8 -1/4 -3/8-1/2.... I still get confused figuring out if 3/8 is bigger than 3/4 or is it the other way around?! ...more

Spray Painted Chairs

Long time ago when the kitchen makeover was done, I bought a set of Parson chairs for my breakfast nook, I liked them, but after having them for some time, I didn't like that they blocked the view from the family room to the kitchen and vice-verse, their backs were too high and overall they were too big for that small space. I began looking for a set of small chairs and no, not in a store, too expensive for my budget! I kept on browsing through Craiglist until I found them, only $5 per chair ....more

Table Makeover

I bought this table about 8 or 9 years ago at Target. I was trying to give my bathroom more storage so, a long narrow table with drawers was the perfect solution. After assembling it and bringing it to the bathroom I discovered it was too big, too wide for the room :(I didn't return it, it stayed in my bedroom for a couple of years ....more
