Children’s ABC Table

We are currently in the process of trying to potty train my stubborn little 3 year old guy. He thinks he has better things to do than sit on a potty. SO I came up with a simple idea to make it more worth his while. Give him a table for books, puzzles, and his…

Wine Cork Shadow Box

In an earlier post I talked about building a large wine rack in our dining room. A fun little consequence of drinking all that wine are the corks we end up with. In the five years we have been married, my husband and I have accumulated quite a few and I wanted to have a place to…

Floating Nursery Clouds

My oldest son has a pretty awesome Star Wars themed room, so I wanted to make something equally great for my youngest.

Mudroom Hooks

This was a really easy project that I made for my mudroom that has been awesome for hanging lots of coats during our crappy Michigan winters. I searched for something to buy but nothing was big enough and everything to was too expensive. Project time! I found a piece of wood in my basement that the…
