I picked up this vintage footstool last time I was at the Alameda Antique Fair and boy, did it need some help! Someone had decided to paint the base white, and they did a shoddy job to boot. I don’t think they even bothered to sand or prime, the just hastily slapped on some white paint and called it a day. Unfortunately really, because this little stool has great bones, don’t you think?
When I saw it I had a vision. So I picked it up for $10 and brought it home with me, cobwebs and all.
My vision? Well, take some of this:
This post was brought to you by the Lowe’s Creative Ideas Network, which I’m so happy to be a part of along with a crew of other really creative bloggers, you can check out all of our fun projects on the Lowe’s Creative Ideas Blog.

I thought they turned out adorable. I loved creating custom shirts using my drawings and picking the colors I like (black and white) of course 😉 My mind is racing with other designs I can make!
This onesie was inspired by my love of all things Nununu. I figured this would pair nicely with all of Conrad’s Nununu pants.
I thought this one was kind of fun too. Just a friendly little play on the “It’s OK” banners that are so hot right now. The shirt is from here. It’s hard to find shirts as opposed to onesies in the smaller sizes. It’s not quite as soft as the Old Navy onesies though.
And of course, Silhouette is running a great promotion right now (April 21st – 30th) on heat transfer bundles. Remember to use this special promo code at check out to get access to these prices:
Now I get that the Silhouette Heat Transfer Bundle is an investment, but depending on how often you use it? You’ll make your money back in no time at all. I’m always thinking of ways to use it around here, believe me it’s not hard! Here are some easy DIYs on my to-do list that can easily be made with the Silhouette and heat transfer bundle:
But THIS month we decided to create some fun outdoor art to enjoy this summer. We decided to create a succulent wall. I took my inspiration from my favorite local cafe, Bumble. Bumble has the most amazing succulent wall created by The Botanist.

Of course we aren’t going for one on such a grand scale, I think Bumble’s succulent frame is the size of our backyard patio. Well, pretty close 😉 We decided to tackle doing two 2ft x 2ft succulent frames.
We created, and when I saw “we” I mean, the Mr., a box from some left over cedar we had laying around from making our raised vegetable beds.
I’ll do another follow up post in a couple of weeks when they’re ready to be hung!
