DIY Pantry


I finally decided on the size based on our need , it only took me days!! Both my husband and I hate doing drywall and we both love weed so we decided to install shiplap instead. I am going to have two drawers the length of the side with only one piece on it and then shelves on the rest. I might put drawers on the other side as well but, not sure yet .

You know the messed up part of this whole thing is, the blue print design was easy, the building part is not too bad but the actual designs, colors , drawers or shelves, lighting, that part is the most difficult!! I’m worried I won’t like the results or it won’t look right, wow! Well I guess we will see!!!

Cross for teenage boy?


My best friends son wanted me to make him a cross with his birthstone in it for him. I must admit I had a hard time deciding what to make for a boy about to be a teenager.

I started to just play with my wire at first, most of these are lopsided but I was just thinking. Then I decided to go a different way and came up with the cross I gave him. He likes it so that’s all that matters really!

Upcycled grill


Cleaning up around our yard I ran across the old grill, lightbulb!!! I have seen photos of people doing this and thought it always looked cute so off to the Depot I went.

The selection of perennial plants was limited so I’m not very happy with the look but maybe once they grow out it will look better.

Decided to add some lights and what a pain that was!! The watering can I used had a difficult spout so getting the lights through was not easy! First I had to make 10 holes bigger, then I had to find a long sturdy wire to thread in and wrap the lights around good enough to pull back through, took me awhile to think of cutting the first light on each end off to stop it from getting stuck at the hole and slipping off, but I finally got it. Phew! Done !
