DIY Large Scale Wall Art from Scratch

Publication1

The projects I’m sharing today are achieved the same way I did the Steelers wall logo in our office and my Illuminated Canvas at Christmas time last year. It’s a great way to get some large scale artwork to fill a space quickly and easily. I needed two pieces of art to fill some empty space in [...]

When we moved into our home seven years ago, I bought some dining room chairs for our eat in kitchen area from JCPenney. They were nice for a while, but the stretchers were less than ideal.  By now, most of them were either completely broken or pulling away from the rest of the chair. We [...]

The Tiny House Movement

I am a huge fan of camping in an RV.  When I was a kid, my grandparents used to take me camping all the time, but they had a large motorhome and then a fifth wheel.  So, it was more like a moveable house than roughing it. I like tent camping, too. Don’t get me [...]
