who knew the answer to my problems would be one of the tiniest tupperware containers I never thought I would use.
I don't know about you, but it seems I'm always digging through my drawers looking for bobby pins and hair ties. Today I decided to tackle that problem with a quick inexpensive solution:
Just toss in your bobby pins/small clips and wrap the rubber bands around the container and voilà, problem solved!
With all of the puppies we have coming through the drive-thru at work we decided we needed a treat jar to replace the coffee can we had been using.
I bought the jar for *I THINK* $5 at Hobby Lobby, the "I Ruff You" came in a pet scrap book pack I picked up a couple of years ago at Big Lots, and I used my Cricut and some brown vinyl for "Treats" and cut out circles for the paw print.
This project was super easy and inexpensive & I noticed small wooden bones at Hobby Lobby, so I'm thinking of making another jar for my doggies and painting/customizing it with their names. Hope you enjoy!
Okay, so until I made this table I had NEVER used a tool in my life! Somehow I kept ending up at Ana White, and staring at the plans for this coffee table, so one morning I literally woke up and decided to build it. My sweet boyfriend said he would assist me so off to Lowe's we went, and this is how it ended.
I LOVE IT!!!
Actually, love isn't the word for it. I needed a little help getting some of the screws to go in but other than that, I did it myself and I think that is what help makes it so satisfying. Everything was super easy and the plan was super easy to follow. For the legs I used "Warm Buff" by Valspar and for the top I used "Early American" by minwax, then i used a sanding block on the edges of the legs and applied some of the stain there and wiped it off quickly. Next on my list, matching end tables.
