A can of paint might be my favorite DIY/transformation tool. It has transformed and refreshed many pieces in my house, and every Tuesday you will get to see just what I am talking about. Perhaps you will even get to see some of my yard sale finds repurposed, repainted, reinvented, etc. You’re just gonna have to stay tuned.
Check out this mid-century dresser that I found on the side of the road.
Transformat Tuesday- painted dresser. Here’s the before
Yup, ON. THE. SIDE. OF. THE. ROAD.
Now the Dresser had some dings in it, but I liked the lines and the style. Some paint, and some elbow grease, and check out the Transformation….
Here’s the same dresser in my oldest’s room.

Stay tuned for the next Transformation Tuesday.

There are some of us who just have a thing for crabs. I am not just talking about a thing for eating, but a thing for displaying them. This love is akin to the obsession that many have for the Maryland Flag (remember my crab on burlap, which featured both the Maryland flag and a blue crab?).
Now, I am not judging; swing by my house and you’ll find nods to those crustaceans (and the Maryland flag).
The other day, I made an easy drop cloth crab canvas thing for one of my wonderful aunts. She recently sent me some gorgeous hand-knitted and crocheted scarves, and I wanted to send her a little thanks.
So I came up with this easy drop cloth crab canvas.
The pictures will tell the story, but here are a few tips for you folks at home.
I had an old canvas, which I spray painted because I wanted to make sure the old marks didn’t show through when I covered it with the drop cloth. You could easily use a new one, but I have a little stockpile of old canvases (and I am like Captain Planet, so I reused that ish).
I then covered the canvas with the drop cloth. Staple and pull tightly, and wrap the corners like you would a present.
