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...]

One of the most tedious/important steps of installing our hardwood flooring was the removal of our baseboards on the entire main level of our home. We got quite good at it by the end, but we also learned a few lessons along the way. Hopefully these tips can save you some time if you are tackling a similar project. 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...]

Click-lock engineered hardwood flooring

I'm a visual person. I love learning things, but I learn a ba-dillion times faster if you show me. I'm even this way with recipes. If I watch someone make a recipe, it's burned in my mind forever. Because I prefer to learn visually, I vowed to video our flooring installation process to show you how easy {or how hard in the case of scraping the tile thin set} the process has been. We now know that our house has a TON of … [Read more...]


Let me just start with the fact that I was very naive going into this flooring project. If you have been following along on Instagram, you know that we are up to our chins in the process of installing hardwood flooring on our entire main level. Last night at 1:30 am, we set up our bed in the kitchen. I slept with my head six inches away from my kitchen sink. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do to get a good night's sleep, … [Read more...]
