Dog Bed

We adopted a dog from the Humane Society a month ago. Her name is Zoey! She is a beagle / german shepherd mix. I am obsessed with her. Before we even got a dog my husband made the rule “no dogs on the bed.” So I knew I had to make her the coolest bed…

Bungee Ball Storage

There were a few balls rolling around loose in my garage that were driving me nuts. My boys are only 1 and 3 years old, so I know these balls are going to multiply like rabbits as the years go by. I decided it was necessary to build this bungee cord ball storage contraption. It was…

Custom Baby Gate
