Guest Blogger: Potholes & Pantyhose

Today I’m turning my blog over to one of my favorite people. Rebekah from Potholes and Pantyhose and I became fast friends over a year ago (wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long!).

Not only is she a super cool gal, but she also is a blogger! Yay! I absolutely LOVE her style and sense of humor. Her blog so pretty to look at and she also has really great content.

Rebekah use to have a pretty big following online, but her blog crashed (kinda my fault. sorry!) and it took her over 8 months and a hired professional to get her up and running again. Because blog years are like dog years, she was pretty much offline for almost 7 years. 🙁 She is now trying to regain her place in the blog world, and I’m more than happy to do what I can to share her with the world.

With that being said, I now turn the post over to Rebekah. I encourage each of you to head on over to her blog and give her a big ol’ bear hug. She’s got some amazing projects over there in her ample archives.

Hello, House of Hepworth readers! My name is Rebekah from Potholes and Pantyhose and I am thrilled to be a guest here today. Allison is one of my most favorite ladies in all of the blogging land.

At Potholes and Pantyhose, I share and photograph detailed tutorials of my DIY Projects, Recipes, Photography Tips and Remodeling Endeavors. Here are a few examples of projects I’ve done recently:

I made Sweet and Salty Gifts to share with all of my neighbors.

I discovered that by using a tall glass, the almond bark was easily applied on my Sweet & Salty pretzel rods. Simple-yes. Super yummy? Double yes.

While hubby was away, I decided to play. I did what any normal girl armed with several thrift store frames, canary yellow garage paint, and muriatic acid would do. I re-did our Master Bathroom! I even added a beautiful and romantic chandelier.

I hate filing cabinets. I think they are ugly, clunky and ruin the aesthetics of what could be a cool office.

But, I also need filing cabinets; we own a couple of rent houses, have a few home businesses, and I am deeply partial to organization.

So, when life gives you lemons-make a cool Mod Filing Cabinet. 🙂

Last but not least, I used an old pepper barrel purchased from a feed store to make a DIY Recycled and Cheap Rain Barrel.

With just a bit of rain, both of the barrels I outfitted underneath my gutters are brimming to the max. And my vegetable garden is reaping all the free watering benefits.

There’s so much more where this came from!

But, I bet you have a diaper to change, a job to go to, or a husband that needs his lunch packed. So, I’ll leave you with these four tutorials.

However, if you find yourself between errands or loads of laundry, make sure you stop by Potholes and Pantyhose and say “howdy”. Check out some more of my projects and let me know what you think!

Thanks again, Allison. I have enjoyed my time here immensely.

It just seems plain ol’ wrong for her to leave out one of my most favorite projects in the history of Potholes and Pantyhose

Broken Glass Mirror Art

One of the best mirror projects I’ve ever seen. I’m still planning on copying this one day.

I hope you guys love Rebekah as much as I do! Thanks for hanging out with my guest today!

  1. Allison-
    You are so amazing! The sweet words that you said just made my entire stinkin’ day. I am so honored that you allow me to guest post from time to time. You have done so much for me.
    And you are crazy if you think you had anything to do with my blog crashing. You guys tried to help me fix it! It crashed because Iweb just couldn’t handle my innate awesomeness…or something of the sort. I am just so glad to be back up and blogging. Thank you for always lending a hand, your expertise and your innate awesomeness-to me.
    I owe you huge time!

  2. Man, this gal has some serious talent! Going to check her out right now!


  3. I can’t see pictures on either of the two posts I wanted to look at, the filing cabinets or the mirror post Allison pointed out. Is it just me? I tried refreshing…

  4. So nice to meet Rebekah!! Loved her projects!!

    My host decided to change everything the day this was published. I’m so sorry-I was so frustrated! I don’t know why but a bunch of links quit working. I have fixed the problem and now it’s up and running. Thanks for trying to check the links out-they are ready for your curious eyes now!
