DIY Oak Stairs Project

We decided we wanted to do bigger projects. We have wanted to fix up our house and remodel here and there. We ended up doing a DIY project for our stairs that is going to our second story. We did not have a big budget but we wanted it to look really nice. We came up with a couple of ideas that saved us money and we wanted to share this project with y’all. All together had roughly 600 dollars in materials.

DIY Wooden Pumpkins

The month of October not only snuck up on me, but it has been flying by. Mr. PBL and I finally took time to make a DIY project for Halloween and Fall time. I love wood and how timeless it is. I wanted something that would look great on my front porch. I am not the type of person to be decorating with scary witches, skeletons, ghosts, and gory bloody limbs. I do love cute Halloween decor with a rustic touch to it.

Crazy kids and DIY’s

Hey guys, Mr. PBL here! If you have kids then I am sure you can relate to this. Kids break things, not on purpose most of the time, but some of these can be very costly repairs. I remember when I was young my brother and I put multiple holes in the sheetrock of our house. If we would have hired somebody to come fix them, it would have cost my parents a ton of money. Like they say, whatever you put your parents through as a child, expect the same from your own kids. Well a game of hide and seek tag in the house turned into one of these instances. Our son was trying to get away and thought it would be a great idea to jump out the window of our bathroom.

I have been wanting some outdoor furniture for a long time. I finally talked Mr.PBL into helping me build a farmhouse patio table. I wasn’t sure how it would come out, but I have to say that I am proud of how it came out. Mr. PBL did most of the building while I sanded and painted it.

Mr.PBL Post- DIY Blanket Ladder

Last week was a rough week for me. I went back to my home town for a funeral and also for my sister’s baby shower. A sudden change of location for the baby shower sent us into panic. I also had very little time to devout to the blog. My wonderful hubby started a project without me. I always love doing the projects together because I enjoy spending time together. I also like to be there when doing the projects because I like things done a certain way. I’ve got to say he did a great job without me and I appreciate him helping me to stay on track. Check out his DIY project below.

Easy DIY Christmas Project

Usually the week goes by fast for me, but this week dragged. I don’t know if I’m just ready for the holidays or what but TGIF! I have a super easy DIY Christmas Project that I did and I wanted to share it.

There was really not much to this project. I got this glass window piece at a garage sale for free, back in the Spring. I figured I could do something with it. I think it turned out great, plus no money spent. Yay!

DIY Rustic Christmas Wreath

Happy Thursday! If you haven’t noticed yet I love to decorate for Christmas but unfortunately it’s not cheap. I’m all about saving money so I used items in my own backyard to make a Christmas Wreath. Plus, when I’m saving money, it makes Mr. PBL happy! That way he’s in a good mood. The next time he won’t say anything when we have to buy wood for another DIY project because we saved money on this project!
