Dreaming of Spring Things

Nest6headerFeatured

February is almost over and I’m hoping March will bring warmer temps, sunnier days, and little birds chirping their springtime songs.  The dreariness of winter always dampens my spirits but in spring my energy is renewed and I feel “normal” again.  So in honor of my favorite season, I made some decor to help me [...]

Make any Image Into a Pillow

Boys Pillow by Girl in the Garage

I saw this project a while back in Martha Stewart Living and fell in love with it.  It was on my to-do list for over a month when my sister told me about a Basset Hound pillow at Pottery Barn that she wanted but was pretty expensive.  She sent me a picture and I told [...]

Chic Little Table Redo

Chic Little Table Redo featured

I got this table for a steal this summer at a yard sale.  It had definitely seen better days and had a few minor issues, but nothing that some paint couldn’t fix!  This is what it looked like before I did anything to it: I thought it had very nice legs. First I casually painted [...]

I’m in the midst of redecorating our living room and one of my first projects was to fix an awkward area where the foyer and living room meet.  It’s probably the highest-traffic area in our home, and often becomes a mess of “stuff” – sets of keys, my purse, shopping bags, mail, scarves, etc.

Heartstrings

Red and white have always been one of my favorite color combinations (they were even my wedding colors) and I enjoy creating unique home decor so this project was just my style. This lovely heart craft took less than an hour to make and can easily enhance your Valentine’s Day decor.  You can make your [...]

Our younger son’s (age 2) room is painted in a silvery-gray decorated with space ships, planets, and out-of-this-world robot removable decals.

Little Boy’s Room #1

X- boys room decor at Girl in the Garage

Here is our older son’s (age 3) room which is currently a cars/trucks/planes/trains theme in mostly primary colors.  The fun features include removable vintage automobile decals, color-blocked painted walls, picnic table, winding race car track, and boat and car canvas art.  The decals are strategically placed all over the walls to seem as though my [...]
