French Flower Seed Tray

I know the first day of spring was over a week ago but I never feel like it’s officially spring until Easter comes.  Since Easter was yesterday – YEAY, SPRING IS HERE!  (I hope you had a lovely Easter, by the way!)  Spring always puts me in a good mood.   🙂  The warmer weather, […] Read more…

DIY Custom Shower Curtain

A few weeks ago, I volunteered to make a custom shower curtain for a friend who I helped update her bathroom.  I’d never attempted to make one before, but I really wanted to make something that would tie in the color scheme perfectly and give the right “classy/polished” vibe that we were going for.  Stay tuned […] Read more…

Budget Bathroom Makeover

Some friends of mine decided to update the one and only bathroom in their house recently.  They had lived in their home for 20+ years and over the past several years had fixed up every other room – but the bathroom was overdue.  However, they had a budget so they wanted to make smart choices […] Read more…

Fear vs. Confidence

As a little girl, I was very shy.  It was sometimes hard for me to talk to new people and make friends – but when I did, I discovered that the benefits of having a new friend outweighed the fear of not being liked or accepted.  I am still the kind of person who would […] Read more…

French Graphic Cabinet Makeover

Hi friend, how have you been?  The weather here has been driving me a little crazy; one day it’s snowing, then raining, then 50 degrees, then back to 30.  I love the warmer days but then my dogs’ feet get SO muddy outside!  Well that’s Indiana for you.  I’ve got a terrible case of spring […] Read more…

Girl in Time Out {Jamaica}

Dreaming of Spring Things

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 […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…

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 […] Read more…
