DIY Candle Wax Tarts

What do you do with your candle once you’ve burned the entire thing? I know a lot of us reuse the jars, but what about the wax? Well, I have uploaded a new YouTube video that will show you how to upcycle the leftover candle wax. No lie guys, these little tarts will light your house up. They put off such a powerful aroma. I hope you enjoy the video, and please let me know if you make them!

How to Transform Cheap Art

Gallery Wall3 edited12
Have you ever been to one of these cheapie little dollar stores and see a piece of art that is kinda cute? That’s what happened to me one day while in a store called Maxway. I’m not sure if they’re all over the U.S., but they are in Florida. I stop in from time to time, just to see what they have. I fell in love with this leopard canvas print. The only thing is that it had this extremely shiny clear coat over the top of it. That made it look so cheap! But, I still loved it. I put it in my cart, and continued to walk around a bit. The entire time, I was trying to think how in the world I could transform this piece to make it look “expensive”. Then a light bulb went off! I could spray paint it, then rough it up a bit with a little sandpaper. If my plan failed, it was only $9.Continue Reading

Bud Light Lime Rita Hour!

This post was sponsored by Anheuser Busch. Although the post is sponsored, all opinions are my own.

I thought I’d invite a few friends over to hang out in our backyard. I absolutely LOVE our patio, but thought I would switch up the pace, by creating this super colorful, and vibrant area on our lawn. I threw down a few waterproof rugs that I scored from World Market for $5 each! Even though they aren’t the exact same rugs, I paired them together to have this really cool layered look! I added a few throws, and side tables to make the look come together.

DIY Pallet Furniture (Picture Heavy)

DIY Pallet Furniture Before After
Here is my long-awaited pallet furniture tutorial! I’m not going to talk too much because I have A LOT of pictures to show you guys!

First, we started with a stack of pallets. I think we purchased 15 and they were $2 each (I ended up only needing about 6 of them). The initial plan was to make a back to the benches, but after looking at the patio, we didn’t think that was feasible. The back would have ended up leaning against the screen, maybe causing it to tear. Continue Reading

Yard Sale Chair Makeover

Patio Chair Makeover - Yard Sale I found this awesome set of patio chairs at a yard sale for $16! Me, being the budget – fashionista that I am, thought $16 was a bit much. I was thinking more along the lines of $10. Believe it or not, I’m not much of a haggler. I have probably walked away from some pretty good finds because I didn’t want to offer the seller less money. I guess it has to do with the fact that I’ve had yard sales in the past, and when people try to low-ball me, I get really annoyed. FAST! After consulting with my better half about these chairs, I was assured that I was getting a great price. So I got them. They didn’t need much work at all. I wiped them down, gave them a few coats of black spray paint, and they were all done! I’m so happy I didn’t walk away this time. They are some of the most comfortable patio chairs I’ve ever sat in. I hope to have a patio reveal within a few weeks. It has truly come a long way!

Talk to you later,

Come Yard Sale with Me!

So, I finally uploaded another YouTube video after 2 years! LOL! A lot of you ask me about thrifting, yard sales, and Craigslist so I thought I’d make a “follow me around” type of video. I’m not the best video editor in the world, but I gave it a shot. The more videos I make, the better they will start to become. Let me know if you like these types of videos, and I’ll make more in the future. Also, let me know what you’d like for me to do differently. I definitely want your feedback! Thank you all for watching and enjoy your day!
