The Pros and Cons of Ordering a Mattress Online
You can order everything online now, so why not your mattress? Online stores may not have the same overhead with expensive leases and inventory to store up, so mattresses online can be a bit less expensive than brick-and-mortar stores. It comes straight to your door, packed snuggly in a box, wrapped tightly, typically a foam mattress that expands once you release it. This compact packaging makes it super convenient for shipping right to your door.

How to Make DIY Roller Shades for Your Windows!
A DIY roller shade (specifically, fabric roller shades) is so much better than curtains for my 16′ x 26′ “she shed.” This space will be used for woodworking, painting furniture, and sitting down to write blog posts and edit YouTube videos.

How to Paint Metal Cabinets That Are Rusty
Recently I dragged the two cabinets into my “she shed”, ready to get started on them! If possible, they looked even worse than I remembered! I want my shed to be light, airy, with pops of color (like those pretty floral DIY roller blinds I made!). Ideally, I would paint the metal cabinets to accentuate the vibrant colors in those blinds.

How to Sew Cute Lined DIY Curtains
Making your own curtains isn’t necessarily cheaper (unless you’ve figured out a way to stitch lint together from your pocket). But it’s about making exactly the curtains that you want for your home instead of buying some random, cookie-cutter, short, ugly, generic curtains from a retail store.

Why We Should Stop Asking “Does This Spark Joy?”
You may have been living under a rock if you haven’t heard of Marie Kondo. She’s the cute, petite woman who’s been popping into people’s cluttered, messy homes for the past month on Netflix (longer, if you’ve read her book, The Magic of Tidying Up) encouraging people to ask, “Does this spark joy?” before deciding whether or not something is worth keeping or getting rid of.

BEFORE & AFTER: Shabby French Bedside Tables
I absolutely love ugly furniture, much to my husband’s chagrin. Lately he’s been ragging on me to “get rid of the furniture” and send it all back to whatever secondhand hell hole I got it from.
