The Lazy Person’s Guide to Refinishing a Table

  I really need to write about half-assing your way through home improvement and/or life in general. I am really good at making my home look like I spent a lot of time tending to my decor etc.. when in fact, I am a bit of a fraud.

Idiotic Canva and Pic Monkey Graphics Part Deux

Last February, I wrote a nonsensical post about nothing. Oh wait, that's every week. I remember sitting in my kitchen working on my laptop one gloriously sunny (but cold) Saturday while my husband was watching sports of some kind and my children were spending time with friends, working not on the huge to-do list that sat… Continue reading Idiotic Canva and Pic Monkey Graphics Part Deux
