IKEA Rast hack using wood shims || AMAZING DRESSER

I am so super excited about todays post! I haven't dug in and done a real project in quite awhile (unless painting every room in my house counts!). Finally I dug deep and created a project I am super excited about! Just when you thought you had seen every single Rast hack on planet earth, I have come up with one that I've never seen before! I am smitten with my Rast hack and love it so much I think I'm going to make a 2nd one so I have a pair! Isn't it beautiful?! I started with a basic $34.99 IKEA Rast dresser and transformed it into this grid shim weathered oak beauty. I pulled … [Read more...]

How to organize bags, purses, and scarves in a tweens room

We have been slooooooowly getting organized at our new house. It always takes so long to feel moved in and totally comfortable at a new house. I heard the other day that it takes at least two years living in a new location to finally feel acclimated and at home. We've only been in Colorado 9 months so I guess I should stop being so hard on myself. I've really been focusing on making our kids feel settled in, totally comfortable, and "at-home" since the move so I've been focusing a lot of my energy on making sure they have friends and are involved in the community. Also, making their … [Read more...]

TRYING to swap out the refrigerators – easier said than done.

Do you ever start a project thinking it will take you 15 minutes and is a piece of cake, only to have it snowball into an hours-long tortuous undertaking that leaves you questioning why you started the project in the first place? I feel like this pretty much sums up the majority of the projects I take on. "Hey Ben! Will you help me really quick with this small project? It will only take about 15 minutes." Famous last words. Here's our kitchen: This kitchen came with the lovely stainless steel side-by-side fridge you see in the back corner. SWEET! A free fridge with the house! Now … [Read more...]

Removing a set of upper cabinets by myself

We have a set of upper cabinets in our kitchen that are broken and are unusable. We are not currently renovating our kitchen, but I figured I might as well take down the broken cabinets anyway. They will be replaced by some nice floating shelves eventually. I usually just blog step-by-step pictures of me doing crazy stuff like this so I figured I'd mix it up and make a video instead. I hope you enjoy it. Sometimes people wonder how one person can do this type of work by themselves - now you know!
