    Medicine Storage

    Fortunately, our family is not sick very often, so we do not take medicine on a regular basis. I am so thankful to God for that! But the medicines we do have stay up high in a cabinet in our laundry room, well out of reach of our children. I thought I’d share how I store our medicine because it works well for our family. These miniature cloth cubes came from Target and they hang out in the top cabinet of our laundry room.¬†They can also be found here at Amazon. I like having the adult medicine and kids medicine in separate containers. Today I decided to make labels for…

    Updating a rocker

    I bought this sweet little rocker at an estate sale several months ago. I think I paid $15 for it. It was in good shape, just a bit ugly. It’s low to the ground. Reminds me of something a short, sweet granny would rock babies in. I thought it was the perfect size for our eight year old daughter. So I brought it home and tore it apart! Really, the back cushion just slid off and I only removed the skirt at the bottom. I covered the old seat area with a cute pattern of material I already had. I used a staple gun to secure the new fabric along…

    Dollywood

    Good morning! Many of us here in north Alabama enjoyed some time out of school for Fall Break last week, and some are having a break this week. I love this time of year and am so glad that the schools allow for a break from school while the weather is like this! Today, I’m sharing our experiences with Dollywood. And why we have chosen it over Disney in the past. Let me start by saying a couple of things. I am not sponsored by Dollywood in any way, these are just my thoughts. I have no issue with Disney whatsoever, it is magical! I am just getting this information…

    Copper Tins

    Several weeks ago I found this set of copper storage tins at a thrift store. They were screaming “Take Me Home and Take Care of Me”! The set was $6 so I grabbed them before someone else could! I used quite a bit of Bar Keeper’s friend and elbow grease, but now they actually look like copper again. They still have a rustic feel, which I love, and they are functional and cute. Hooray for making junk look good!

    Spray painting our shower door

    Ideally, we would love to reconfigure our master bath and just have a big, beautiful shower and no bathtub. It doesn’t make any sense to do that right now, so we decided to update it just a little about 6 months ago and I’m really liking it much better. This is my oh so helpful, oh so cute crew! The final step in the update was to change the shower door frame since it was brass and we had replaced all the other fixtures already with chrome. I priced getting a new shower door and it was going to cost anywhere from $750-$1000. I decided to try to spray paint…
