DIY Wooden Box Centerpiece

Hello there sawdust sisters!

Are you ready to build this simple DIY wooden box centerpiece? This was such a beautiful spring weekend!! Temps in the high 60’s in Utah are a big deal after a cold winter. So, in between soccer games and other outings I built this DIY wooden box centerpiece out of some scrap wood I had leftover from the floating desk I built a while back.

I love it so much, mostly because it’s so light, airy, and springy! I also like that you can change up its decor with every holiday and seasons.

DIY Blanket Ladder

So excited to show you this DIY Blanket ladder!  If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen the picture of this cutie I made over the weekend! We have cold winters here in Utah. I’m a warm weather lover and every winter I long for summer, but I do like watching the snow cover our beautiful mountains and wrapping myself in a warm throw while watching a movie.  So, this weekend I decided to stay home and make a fun blanket ladder to keep our throws! This ladder would also work well as a towel holder in a bathroom!

How to Reupholster Dining Chairs with Piping!

Back in October, my 22 y/o daughter Andrea came to me and said “Mom I need you to help me reupholster some dining chairs as a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law”.
