A Very Special DIY

Thank you so much for stopping by Lovely Weeds! Connect with me on social media to keep up with my latest projects and Lovely Weeds news.
For the past 5 months I have been working on a very special DIY project. It's a huge one, and not to sound dramatic, but a life-changing one. The kind of venture that turns things upside down, changes your direction, and gives you a whole new outlook on life.

It's about as personal a project as it could be, and one that has been a long time coming. The good news is, this one little enterprise of mine will spark a million ideas and challenges that I will share and tackle with you here. The great news is that in roughly four months, it will start a whole new chapter in my life and family.

Meet our sweet baby girl...


I don't know why I waited so long to share. It's personal, it's scary, and we've had some heartache in the baby department, so I think I needed to get to a peaceful place before opening up that window into our lives.

Seeing that little face made everything real, made everything ok. She's healthy, perfect, and seemed to be sucking her thumb - how do I not share that with anyone and everyone?

Now don't think that this means that all of the DIYs that I'll share from now on will be baby related! I won't lie, there will be plenty of that, but this new arrival also means once again re-configuring our little home to fit the needs of our growing family. That means creative storage (I hide my diapers, thank you very much!), unique organizing solutions (organizing the baby junk with great salvaged junk), new furniture makeovers, and who knows what else.

So thank you for sharing in our joy and excitement!!

Yard Sale, Estate Sale, and Flea Markets: Tips and Tricks!!

Thank you so much for stopping by Lovely Weeds! Connect with me on social media to keep up with my latest projects and Lovely Weeds news.


My man came home after being away for work for over three weeks, and was able to stay home for five days. Needless to say, this mama needed a little TLC and family time! It was a wonderful break, but I'm back to business :).

In lieu of a 2nd Hand Haul today, I have a post for you that is at least on that general theme.

It's no secret that I love the hunt for old and second-(or third... or fourth...)-hand furniture, home decor, and junk! A few years of doing this have taught me few strategies for scoring great deals, and often free stuff! Want to know how I do it?

Pinterest Favorites, Repurposed Edition

Do you ever stop after a Pinterest binge, trying to remember the last time you looked at your own boards?

That is the point, after all... to view your own board once in a while :).


I do that often though, I'm sorry to say, so I thought it would be fun to go through all of my boards and put together a little collection of my favorites! I have 58 boards, so I narrowed it down to those having to do with my favorite subject - repurposing!
