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 !

Painting counter?


As we are building a new bathroom we needed a bigger vanity. I hate paying top dollar for new things. I can’t help it, I’m cheap, we found one online for a good price but it had a tan marbled top. That wasn’t going to work so I looked up how to change that.

I decided to paint it. I did a lot of reading and research, then I jumped in!

Diaper rose


Started with the diapers, putting a corner up and a piece of tulle in front, keep putting diapers around till you can’t hold anymore, then put an elastic.
Once you have a nice looking center with the corners up and tulle showing for color, put on a bigger elastic or type with string.
Pull out the tulle to a long piece, it sticks to the diapers, with another on top, then place your center on , holding the piece of tulle and roll, then the tight.
Do as many lines as diapers as you need.
I placed it inside the nursing pillow and folded down the outside edge.
