Colorful Bird Themed Bedroom Makeover

[Editor's Note: Ashley from Mommy by Day Crafter by Night felt like her bedroom needed a makeover. What was once a drab bedroom is now a fab colorful bird themed boudoir. I love rooms that use lot's of color, patterns and different types of furniture. Ashley pulled together an array of old and new purchases to revamp her bedroom into a retreat that she adores.

How to Install a GFCI outlet

[Editor's Note: Even the most savvy of Do It Yourselfers tend to hesitate when it comes to electrical work. Trey from Daddy Mojo is no exception to the rule. However, after recently hiring an electrician to come over and replace a GFCI Outlet his confidence in this department was lifted. He studied what the electrician was doing, asked lot’s of questions and like any modern day handyman watched a You Tube video about it. No more electricians replacing outlets for this daddy, he has taken matters and outlets into his own hands. - Jen]...more

DIY Antique Window Picture Frame

Well, I finally finished my antique window picture frame. And if I do say so myself, it's pretty fabulous. Here's the deal. When I looked on pinterest and the internet, there were a tons of pictures of these antique windows turned picture frames. But no tutorials or help on actually how to convert it. And not that I'm saying that what I did should be the gold standard, but in an attempt to at least help other sisters (or brothers) out, I thought I'd outline what I did. ...more
