What Are Rig Mats

When I was asked to write about rig mats, I was like, what are those? Then I did some research and realized they're very important in big construction jobs.

DIY Hanging or Pendant Light

So we had this problem with a lack of lighting in our kitchen. The peninsula section of our counter always seemed a little dark, and the main light is behind me in the kitchen, so whenever I'd be cutting something on the cutting board or something, my body would be casting a shadow over what I was doing. So I decided to create my ... see more >>

Planting Herbs in My Garden

Beach Bungalow Time I decided a couple months ago that I wanted to start becoming a bit more self-sufficient when it comes to food, and one of the easiest ways to do that is to grow your own herbs and vegetables. My sister gave me a tomato plant, and that's what inspired me to add some other items to my "garden". So I wrote down ... see more >>

Table Complete

Beach Bungalow Time Wanted to give you a quick update on my table. I finished painting it the other day. I mixed the paint a little differently, so the paint doesn't have a green tint to it anymore. It's simply gray. And yesterday I sprayed 3 coats of lacquer on it. So it should be good to go now! yay! Now we should be able to ... see more >>

Plumbing around the home

I am definitely not the plumber in our family. I'd say I'm more of an electrical girl. I am even going to go help out my step-mom and give her an electrical day this or next weekend. So I'm looking forward to getting my hands dirty so to speak. Kyle was given some plumbing talent, so he's been able to do a lot of our plumbing work ... see more >>

Table Continuation

Beach Bungalow Time I made this table a few days ago. After completing the building of the table, I realized it needed more structural support so that it wouldn't sway side to side. So here's what I did: I finished one layer of paint, and I sanded the table top once and painted that again. I decided to just use some ... see more >>

DIY Counter-Height Kitchen Island Table

Beach Bungalow Time Ever since we moved into the beach bungalow, we have not had a dining table. There wasn't really a good place to put our four-seater dining set, and we never really needed 4 seats anyway because we never have people over for "formal dining". So we sold it. On craigslist of course, because craigslist is awesome. Anyway, ... see more >>
