Easy DIY Upholstered Bench

bench

This is the week of Mom’s projects, it seems.  She just has a thing lately for benches, I guess.  We’ve gone from built ins to an upholstered bench now.  Remember this dining bench I posted a couple weeks ago? Well, she needed it built ASAP because our family was having our annual “Thanksgiving in August” get together (don’t ask) and she didn’t have anywhere for people to sit.  So I built her this easy bench with turned legs, but didn’t…

When Momma Ain’t Happy…Just Make Her Some Built Ins

img_0597

I’ve learned a few things in my short time as an adult.  One of those things is that the saying “when Momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy” is 135.74% true.  So when Momma wants built ins, you make her some built ins. . My Mom has been going through her house (against Dad’s will) and repainting and rearranging and buying new furniture and all that stuff.  It really looks a ton better.  Once she got her kitchen painted, she wanted me to…

Light it Up–Modern Bedside Pendant Lights

img_0456

When people ask me what’s my “style” I have no idea how to even respond.  I just know that I like something when I see it.  Is that a style type?  I’m more of a “I-just-like-what-I-like-when-I-like-it” kind of person.  But, I don’t see that going well during an interview with a design magazine.  Good thing I’ll never have to worry about that happening, right? HA…how depressing. . I’m sorry…back on topic.  So, as we are working on the South Wing…

You’re So Vain…You Probably Think This Post is About You–My DIY Bathroom Vanity

img_0560

Last week I posted about my new bathroom mirror.  People seemed to love it…which was awesome!  (Thank you!)  But, the bathroom vanity seemed to steal the show.  Which is kind of rude, don’t you think? The mirror is over here trying to get its 15 minutes of fame, and the vanity cuts it short by photo bombing all the pictures.  I guess it gets its name honest….vanity.  It’s so vain.  It thinks every bathroom post is about it.  So finally,…

IMG_0487

This post is brought to you by my own personal cheapness and laziness. . Yep, you read that correctly.  I am confessing to you right now that I am cheap and lazy. Need an explanation?  Read on : ) . So, if you’ve been following along for a little bit, you know that we are remodeling our bathroom.  Well, this bathroom needed a big new mirror because the old one was TINY.  But…two things caused me some issues…Dilemma #1: It needs…

The LAST Bathroom Update–Because Sometimes If You Don’t Laugh, You’ll Cry

IMG_8103

I know, I know.  It was never supposed to take this long.  I was never supposed to write this many “update” posts before I finally show you the finished product. . And I was never supposed to be this burnt out.  I apologize for the lack of “fun project” posts lately.  I am dying from not being able to do fun fall projects and show you super cool builds I’ve been working on in the shop.  Like it’s literally eating…

Super Simple DIY Dining Bench with Turned Legs

finished bench

I’m so glad to finally have a fun, new project to show you guys besides the bathroom remodel.  I know you are probably all super tired of hearing about it and it’s taking WAY longer than we expected.  To be honest, I’m tired of working on it.  But, it has been consuming all my time after work and I am bummed I haven’t been able to make anything fun and show you guys…until NOW. (ps forgive the terrible picture…after I…
