Do you have plantation shutters that don’t attach right to the center tilt rod anymore? Me too. Here’s how to fix it – it’s quick and easy and anyone can do it with a pair of needle nose pliers, or even a pair of tweezers. Maybe even just your fingers – you do you.

Easy DIY Coat and Bag Rack

diy home decor Oct 22, 2019

Friends, I made this coat and bag rack and if I can do it, YOU CAN DO IT! You can probably finish in a day, but you want to be sure to let the stain dry completely for a few hours before you hang it.

Originally Published on 4/22/19

Redecorating: cheaper than therapy and equally as effective. In my case at least. I updated my living room from a cardboard tan color to navy blue and that alone made SUCH a difference in the feel of the room, then I added new furniture, and what once was a space that constantly reminded me of what I lost, is now a space I can make new memories and move forward with my life on my own terms.

My living room was the place we all hung out all the time when Jason...
