It’s been a month….

…since I blogged….. Just a quick update. We have been sooooo busy! We leave the beautiful state of Wyoming on the 28th! Yup, that’s less than 2 1/2 weeks from now. 2 weeks from today, Hubba is picking up our truck in Cheyenne. We’ve been busy packing, running loads to thrift & dump & selling/giving […]

A couple pictures…

The day our realtor came out to do a walk through of the house, she didn’t take any pictures. We made sure we had 2 rooms in tip top shape for pictures (since we had 4 days between her walk through & the house hitting the market, we didn’t get it all done). When I […]

WOW!! A quick update!!

The house goes up for show on Monday. 1 week from today. Please pray, not only that the house sells, but that I spend the next week being productive on the few loose ends we have. I’m so nervous. I started sweating once I got off the phone with her. OK, I need to scream […]

Another Candlestick Holder Up-do

Maybe you remember these candlestick holders that I bought at thrift to up-do the Forbidden Candle Holders? At $6 for the set, I refused to let them go to waste. So I switched the candle cup to the other end….. Out to my trusty spray paint cave they went… For a black primer….. And a […]

2-in-1 Project Updo

I am on a roll. I’ve got so many cans of spray paint & surfed so many wonderful blogs. My wheels are turning & there’s no stopping me now πŸ˜€ One of the things I’ve been finding across the web are old window frame updos. I started kicking myself for getting rid of all those […]

The Ladder Shelf

When we decided to put the house on the market, I decided to do something I’ve wanted for awhile. I needed a fairly slim, low profile shelf for one section of our living room that also housed a built-in shelf. I decided to build a ladder shelf. I looked at some plans online, and thought […]

Funny thing is….

Let me preface this by saying thatI have zero affiliation with Krylon, other than my love for the product…. I was just telling Hubba last night that we should buy stock in Krylon & be done with it! I love the “EZ Touch 360ΒΊ Dial.” Pushing the button doesn’t make your finger hurt like those […]

Cabinet Door Up-do, Pt. 2

In an earlier post, I promised to show you what I did with the next door. Remember this old beat up cabinet door? I did the same as the other door, using drywall mud to fill in any holes from hinges or door knobs. After it was dry, I sanded it smooth. I used the […]

Where the dirty clothes gather….

Staging a home is not only hard & tedious work, it isn’t cheap. The first shelves I hit when shopping for the house are clearance racks. I thrift weekly these days to find a score. I scour Amazon in hopes they’ve knocked down the price on a wish item I’ve placed in my cart. Craigslist […]
