    2014's Christmas project was entirely Caveman's, from idea to implementation. (He is quite the President of Homemade Gifts, you know. For the past couple years, we've given this and this.) I think the only involvement I had to was to whine about the smell and then to beautify (meaning, tie a ribbon around) the pots ...

    In our old house we had a large brown wall. We painted it Santa Fe Brown because we liked the color and also because we had lots of very creative ideas to make the wall interesting. In the end, it sat blank for over three years. Empty, big brown wall. I never minded too much ...

    by 9 Permalink 0

    DIY projects sometimes aren't worth the work. Refinishing Red's toddler bed turned out to be one such undertaking. We snagged a sturdy bed off of Craigslist for $20. It was painted an ugly mousey brown, but we thought we'd just refinish it, give it a nice dark stain to match the other wood in the ...
