DIY Toilet Paper Stand

I’ve been helping to redo a couple bathrooms at my grandparents’ cabin after some water damage over the winter so I’ve been in bathroom brainstorming mode these days.

S’mores Treats

In case you haven’t noticed by now, I’m slightly obsessed with s’mores. And now that summer is (basically) here, we can enjoy s’mores out on the patio all summer long! But sometimes ya need to be able to enjoy s’mores on the go. And if you feel like baking up something delicious, I’d say this…

Patio Chair Makeover

We’re back with another quick and simple transformation project that we partnered with Rust-Oleum on. We love projects that can be done easily, and cheaply, and make a big difference around the house – or patio! This is such a great way to give new life to old patio furniture you may have sitting around,…

Simple Breakfast Tacos

I’ve been eating eggs for breakfast for years. Because I love eggs, it’s a healthy breakfast and it’s simple and easy. Sometimes it’s just two eggs plain, and sometimes I add in carbs or veggies. (And sometimes I get really sick of eggs and switch to cereal for a couple days 😜). Years back, I…

    I love this reveal! And I can’t get over how different your before and afters are for EVERYTHING!!!! I’d like to ask about one little detail in the back door pic. I would like to build something similar for our back door, to the patio. Can you share details of the type of wood used, the stain and/or protective finish on it and if it’s just sitting on the patio like a “box” or is it attached somehow? Thank you!ReplyCancel

      Hi Mary – for the steps we used recycled deck lumber (just something my husband had left over from an old job), which we left unfinished. We might add a finish down the road, but I liked the look of it unfinished, and since it was free wood, we just left it as is (we’d probably use something like Thompson’s WaterSeal if we were to finish it). And the steps are just sitting on the patio, they are not attached to the house or anything. Hope that helps! 🙂ReplyCancel
