DIY Stained Glass “Mosaic” on an Old Salvaged Window

DIY Stained Glass “Mosaic” on an Old Salvaged Window

stained glass window mosaic

I can honestly say, even I was surprised out nice this turned out, I wasn’t sure I’d get the right effect as I was a bit skeptical with glue and thick glass pieces, but I truly love how this turned out! Most of all, I love that 3 of my kids designed this and put thought and time into the project and were able to see this piece of art now hanging as a focal point in our home.

I’ve seen some old…

DIY Tutorial – License Plate Map of the United States

diy license plate united states map tutorial

Hands down the longest project I’ve made to date (aside from the latch hook rug I did on bedrest for 5 weeks straight pregnant with my twins).  Massive Kudo’s to my patient husband who totally helped figure out how to get all these states cut without me slicing my hands and giving up!

I was inspired by some of the license plate art I’ve seen on Pinterest and back in February I was visiting my…

My husband is totally into Sous vide cooking, we now have 2 Sous Vide machines.

Finding the perfect desk that isn’t a gazillon dollars is a bit tough. I actually didn’t want any drawers (we did shelving and rolling drawers instead) and needed 2 desk that were extra long! I loved the look of two tone colors and industrial legs as well so wanted to combine both the up-cycled top with some cool industrial legs.

Since I’m such a fan of salvage I visited our local Re-store and…

Adventures in 3D Printing: Lampshade and Copper Tubing Light Fixture

My husband and I are a bit transfixed with 3D printing, neither of us know a lick about the software to do our own modeling but there are 1000′s of ready to print items on Thingiverse.

Both of us are now at the point where we want to design our own 3D items, but, it’s really intimidating to try to learn how to design.  I’ve downloaded Sketchupand am going through online tutorials, but really…

header

When we built our small mudroom and pantry addition, I new I needed a tilt out trash bin, nothing on the market fit the space the way I wanted. So I of course went to Ana-White.com and found a plan that I liked. I needed to hack it a bit to fit my space perfectly. But her wood tilt out trash can or recycling cabinet plans were perfect! (at this point, I’ve built about 5 Ana-White projects…

First things first, this is NOT a proper photo heavy tutorial, I was so project focused, I didn’t take enough pictures to make a proper tutorial, but I’ll walk you through what I did.

When we moved into our 1928 Seattle bungalow, our room true to the era is quite small.  We wanted a King size bed and that left little space for dressers. I could not find any dressers that had the width and depth…
