Tone on Tone Wall Stencil

How to create a tone on tone pattern on a wall using a stencil

Remember last week when I shared my hairpin leg vanity? Did you notice the beautiful brunette modeling? Well, that's my best friend Nicki. She and I have been like peas and carrots since High School. Nicki recently bought a gorgeous new house and we have been working bit by bit to make it a home. Anyone remember the DIY entertainment center we built?

Hairpin Make-up Vanity [Building Plans and GIVEAWAY!!]

DIY Hairpin leg, make-up vanity. Free building plans and giveaway!

Hi everyone! I got a new set of furniture plans fresh and hot out of the oven for you. Seeing how Mother's day is right around the corner, I've been thinking about projects that a Mom might need. I happen to be a mom and I decided I would love a make-up vanity that I could sit at and get ready for the day, so that's what I came up with. Since I'm digging more modern, clean lines right now, my DIY vanity has just that.

My list of the best You Tube channels for a DIY lover to subscribe to.

There are tons of truly awesome woodworking, building, and refinishing channels on YouTube So, with that train of thought, I figured I'd share my subscription list with you guys.

How to Get an Even Finish When Staining Pine


Brave new waters for me people. You may have noticed my tutorials can get pretty lengthy. Partly because my techniques can be a little complicated, but mostly, I am anal and like to over explain. I've decided videos might be the way to go.

Tall Tapered Leg Dresser


My poor bedroom has been neglected. We inherited a hand-me-down guest bedroom set of furniture 7 years ago when we got married, and while I greatly appreciated having somewhere to sleep, it probably wasn't what I would have picked out myself. I decided I should finally start building us a new set, and here is the first piece.
