How to Repair Light Fixture Ceiling Hole

All the credit for this brilliant method of repairing a hole from a light fixture hole goes to my hubby, Steve. Four years ago, when we moved into our fixer upper, we relocated a lot of lights. This method was so helpful in patching the hole and getting it to blend into the textured ceiling. The supplies needed:1- Drywall screws 2- Drill with screw driver 3- Scrap of wood4- Scrap of drywall (for ours, we kept the dry wall circle cut out for the new light fixture placement)5- Drywall mud6- Drywall knifes (small for scooping out the container and large for smoothing out the…

How to Build a Fireplace Surround and Mantle

We LOVE fireplaces. We love the way they anchor a room and add charm, character and architectural detail. There is nothing better than cozying up with a blanket by the fireplace on a chilly winter's day. Just ask my youngest grandson about that! It can be 90 degrees outside and the A/C is on and he wants to turn on the fireplace and cuddle up in a blanket! If you look closely at this photo you will see that the patriotic decor is on the shelves, the fireplace is on and we are cuddled up reading a book. Yep, it's July…

How to Create a Frame From Scrap Lumber

Welcome to another quick and easy tutorial. Today I would like to share how we created this simple frame for a piece of vintage glass. We were out searching for yard sales and found this window on the side of the road with a note on it that said FREE.  I did have my hubby with me and he of course wants to know what in the world I'm going to do with it. At that time, I had no idea, but when I like it and it's FREE, it's going home with me! This is what it looked like, when…
