DIY Outdoor Chalkboard

diy outdoor chalkboard

DIY Outdoor Chalkboard by: Amy Hi guys!  I’ve been spending a little time reworking my front porch this summer.  It’s one of those areas of our fixer-upper home that has needed a little TLC.  It’s still a work in progress, but I wanted to share one of the biggest improvements we have made so far.  Our front door has a long, narrow side light window that I have always hated.  When my kids were little, the neighbor kids used to peek in to see if we were home so the kids could play {and our dog would go berserk}.  I [&hellip

Burlap Beach Wreath If you’ve read this blog, you probably have realized that I love making wreaths!

DIY Antiqued Mirror Tutorial

CA-DIY-rustic-mirror-redo

DIY Antiqued Mirror One of our half baths had a crusty old wood mirror that needed to be refinished or replaced for our bathroom renovation.  I decided it was going to get a cleaner looking weathered finish inspired by the gray weathered finish of the wood on my parent’s home.  I love the look of weathered sunbleached wood! Here’s how the mirror started. The wood was very dry and splintery.  It also had a few flecks of cast off white paint.  Not terrible just not quite what I had in mind for our bathroom remodel.
