As y'all know, I've been working on wrapping the dining room. One of the things I really wanted to do was build a new dining room table. Unfortunately, after hurting my toe, that went by the wayside. Will I build a table? Maybe. Truth be told, I'm really digging my temporary fix and may just leave it. So what was the temporary fix? Faux wood grain!Read More
A funny thing happened last December. I was this close to finishing my dining room and bam! I changed directions and started working on the kitchen. I had a good reason. The island is between the kitchen and dining room and until it was finished, the whole space was undone. So, I switched gears and knocked out my kitchen. After all the dust settled, I decided it was time to finally finish the dining room. Since there were a few steps in this process, I decided to break it up into segments (so I don't overload you). One of those steps was new seating.Read More
Looking for an easy beginning DIY woodworking project? My Rozy Dining bench is the perfect place to start. In less than an hour I was able to cut and assemble this beautiful dining bench. Better yet, all I needed was a miter saw and drill. It doesn't get easier to than that.Read More

Over the weekend we (the Hubs and I) were able to wrap up a few things. One of those thing was our son's headboard. Since we are doing a train theme in his room we thought it would be cool to do a DIY Headboard that looked like old train rails. After a bit of online browsing I found the design I wanted. I sketched out a few plans and headed to the hardware store to grab some materials.
Over a period of a couple of days we were able to create our very own headboard. And the cost? Around $30! Even better, this is an easy weekend project that just about anyone could do. To make it easy, I photographed almost every step along the way (some things were just too hard to photograph). Hopefully you will feel inspired to tackle this project yourself. :-)Read More
