Give furniture a new look with this simple method for stripping a table top. I’m sharing the best way I have found for lightening dark wood furniture (with no sanding necessary!)

Easily install peel and stick wallpaper to add affordable color and personality to your space. 

After spending my days removing layers of wallpaper in most of the rooms of our fixer upper…I can honestly say I was anti-wallpaper.

When I was first working out how to make over our laundry room on a $100 budget, the largest dilemma was over washer dryer storage. 

I love the clean look of wall cabinets with a hanging rod, so I went to Facebook Marketplace in search of an affordable kitchen cabinet to paint and repurpose. 

As I’m searching all the different iterations I can think of to say “wall cabinet”, I came across an old china cabinet posting…and it dawned on me.
