You know the feeling when you have something big coming up and you’re against the clock trying to get everything done? We’re having Friendsgiving at our house this weekend, so I’m in a big push to get a lot of the half done projects complete. This feeling to complete everything is less because my friends care what my house looks like and more because all of the half done projects are living in the dining room, in the exact spot where people are going to need to eat!
One of the smaller projects was this bench that I’ve been working on since August. Yes, over three months ago.
If you’ll remember, I was near complete with this bench, when I hit an unfortunate snag. The snag being that the entire thing fell apart. I had used pine wood not thinking about how soft the wood was and how easily it splinters. As soon as I put the weight of the top on the bench, the entire thing collapsed.
Happy (belated) Thanksgiving! I spent the day with my family eating, playing cards, and chatting. I especially loved the hour I spent with my grandma
Eek! Christmas prep is in full swing over here at EHC and I have been SO excited to share this advent calendar with you! Can you believe that this is the FIRST advent calendar I have done on this blog? That’s five years of blogging and not-a-one. Until now…
I got this idea because it’s easy to do and is such a pretty mantle arrangement as well, so it pulls double duty. Keep on reading and get the easy tutorial for this Christmas forest advent calendar DIY!
The holiday season is really in full swing now! I’m spending this morning doing a little grocery shopping for the big day and I’m excited to dress my table with these really beautiful tea tins that I made this weekend.
They’re so easy and just a little bit of strategically applied paint makes them look so artsy and upscale! Don’t they look like something you’d buy from a high end gourmet store? Well, I’ll assure you, I made them. Not ONLY do I have the full how-to for these beautiful diy tea tins, but I have a pretty exciting giveaway for you too! Let’s go!
Happy Monday! Boy was it a jam-packed weekend! I think Matty was home for all of 5 waking hours this weekend and spent those helping me with the countertops.
I am really trying to get this whole project done before we have 15 guest converge upon our house for Friendsgiving in the first weekend of December, so we are really pushing it for time.
Luckily, these DIY butcher block kitchen countertops are pretty easy peasy.
