Cork Wine Glass Charms

 Katie made these cute cork wine glass charms for her girlfriend’s bachelorette party. The girls in this Bahelorette Party headed to Frederick, Maryland for a Frederick Wine Trail Party.

These cork wine glass charms were the perfect little favor (and useful) gift. Follow the pictures below for an easy tutorial.

Tiki Bar Transformation with Spray Paint

I sure love Yard Sale season. Remember when Grace and I scored some seriously awesome finds at some yard sales in last fall (if not, check it here)?

One of my favorite finds from the fall was this tiki bar that Grace spotted on a Facebook Yard Sale site.


Can’t you see the potential in this Tiki Bar?


After some friendly bartering and negotiating, Grace and I shoved it in the back of my car, and off we drove (slowly, because that sucker was hanging out).

What you’ll soon find out is that spray paint and I have an intense relationship full of love and admiration.

Spray Paint– it’s pretty amazing.

Check out how some spray paint updated this tiki bar, and now it is ready for outside hangouts!

Anyone out there have some great before and after spray paint stories? If so, we would love to hear about them.

Transformation Tuesday- Painted Dresser

It’s Transformation Tuesday- Painted Dresser edition. 

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.

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.
