How to Build a High Heel Shoe Rack

Monday, June 25th, 2012

All the ladies who love shoes, raise your hands! 

Friends, I’d like to share with you my first project for HGTV is now online – it’s a two tiered high heel shoe rack I built from wood and dowel rods for my heels and painted in a fabulous shade of raspberry pink.

Spray Paint Sprucing + The Squad!

Monday, June 25th, 2012

This weekend, I decided to tackle one of the 2012 Home Goals I set a few months ago, one of which is to pull together a conversation area on our balcony that overlooks the yard.  Sadly, it’s sat there empty and neglected for too many years and I’m finally in the process of creating a conversation zone up there.  Instead of a new purchase, I decided to be cheap and spruce up a set of old furniture that I already have to work with what I got!

Look for a bunch of projects in the coming months with the stuff I find on the shelves of my local store. 

Yesterday, I headed down to my local True Value to grab some outdoor metallic spray paint I’ve used in the past, Rust-Oleum makes a great version for outdoor furniture in oil rubbed bronze.

If you’re looking to spruce up your old set, I’m tellin ya, spray paint is the way to go!   I spray painted all of my outdoor furniture five years ago, and it’s held up well, but this particular set was in special need of some touch up love.
