DIY Nesting Boxes

Hello-Hello. Back again with a very easy and very functional DIY Nesting Box tutorial. Before we jump in wanted to share some of what has been going on in the LMB household over the past few weeks, if you missed it from LMB or our social media. Well we finished up the front room shiplap, and what a job that was. I felt like I was cutting shiplap for days on days. I decided not to post about it, because not only have we posted about it before, I am sure how-to's are out there enough with how big the trend is right now. I really love the texture and character it brings to our home, and enjoy all the tedious work it takes to put up. I know there are some people out there starting to dislike this trend, but for our home I think it just belongs, and will always fit right in. As you already have read and witnessed over social media, LMB finally got her trip to Magnolia, and while I really-really wished I could have been there with her for all of her happy moments, I was very busy at home. If … [Read more...]

Why you need a Miter Saw

Hello and Happy Monday! LMB and myself are having so much fun this summer with the big move to our new farmhouse and helping keep up The Found Cottage. I can't believe The Found Cottage has been open for over 6 months now, and the overwhelming amount of support from both local Michiganders to people across the state. LMB and her two other partners in crime, have been doing such an amazing job, I was so happy to give them a hand in opening the doors. The adventures at the farmhouse have also been so much fun. I have to say for a DIY blogger couple, right now our biggest challenge is where to start first. "So much room for activities." While our hopes and dreams begin to be imagined, the DIY list piles up. I am trying to get in the new routine of just life being in a new home, let alone figuring out my DIY schedule and blogging time. LMB posted the home tour video a few weeks back, I think Mr. LMB should do a Garage/Workshop tour soon, but not right now (it turned into our temporary … [Read more...]

Re-purposed Card Catalog

Welcome-Welcome! LMB and myself have been scheming this past weekend with new projects for the house, and yes we haven't really finished any of the ones we have started, but that'll come one day...I hope. Here is a little recap of our adventures on top of our re-purposed card catalog. Weekend Recap Let's see... we painted a bunch of end tables with our new Graco Paint Sprayer, oh and a cement rabbit lawn ornament, and a rickety rocking chair ...  I've come to realize, Left Over paint + Trigger happy LMB, everything and anything was up to be painted. I will be doing a post on it, hopefully sometime this week. We hung a barn door slider in the dining room, it turned out great, check out LMB's Instagram (here), for a, "before the post," sneak peak. Grand Rapids, had a tough weekend with a tornado, which is a rare scene for us up here. Started in on our front living room, and found some really cool stuff. Which got me thinking, what new tools do I need to finish that room … [Read more...]
