ATT WeatheredWood Table 20

Today was a great day for a Teddy Bear Picnic with Blaire. That's what grandmas do. Unfortunately, Kacey's $15 garage sale table and chairs looked like this at 8:30 this morning: I’ve been dying to create the latest "driftwood" or "weathered wood" look. However, the weathered wood products on the market call for hours of sanding to get to the bare wood, and we didn't have that kind of time. I’m all about instant … [Read more...]

Bathroom Makeover After (19 of 19)

Our guest room is such a fun and colorful room, and guests have told me numerous times how welcoming it feels. That makes me so happy! In fact, check out my post about guest room essentials if you have a minute! The headboard in that room was kind of a fluke plan, but it turned out great. Sometimes you can't control the way a room turns out 100% in the planning stages, but it always turns out better in the end because … [Read more...]

roman shades diy tutorial

Warning, this post is looooong, but it's necessary. I have read and watched at least 25 posts about DIY roman shades in the last month, and to be honest, a few of the posts made me more confused than ever and I nearly decided to scratch the idea of roman shades in my living room. The tutorials out there are confusing. And, they stressed me out. {Just ask Mr. All Things Thrifty, I was a wreck}. I don't usually get … [Read more...]

ATT Metal Clock Makeover 1c

There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just say it. My daughter is a thief. Sort of. I can't complain, though, because her thievery represents a sweet form of flattery. When I refinished this dresser several months ago, I barely had time to photograph it before it disappeared... … [Read more...]

Thrifty Ceiling Project with Dowels (9 of 18)

This post and giveaway are sponsored by GE REVEAL®. You guys. $100 is NOT a lot of money to use for a DIY project. I have $100 to Walmart and free reign. I love a good challenge! My favorite projects are the ones that don't cost a lot of money but make a huge impact on a room. So when the folks at GE Lighting asked me to participate in this challenge, I was ecstatic. They invited me to share four projects over the … [Read more...]

Hi, y'all! It's Rachel from Like a Saturday. As always, I'm happy to be back with you! I have been on a major candle kick lately. I think maybe it has been all of the gloomy weather we've been having lately in Texas. When it's grey and chilly outside, I just want to make the house as cozy as possible -- fluffy blankets, a good book and the warm glow of candle light. I'm picky about my candle scents and ingredients, … [Read more...]

Before we get into our 7 tips, check out how easy it is to remove baseboards quickly and easily. As … [Read more...]

Flooring Project (16 of 153)

I cannot tell you how exciting it was to rip our carpet out for good. After all I posted about hating carpet over a year ago! Dan's smile in this picture says it all! In case you are wondering, yes our garbage can is inside our house in this picture. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do, right?  Even the kids helped out. In fact, Creedy was a trooper. He was hilarious. He wanted to be right in the middle of the … [Read more...]
