I just spent 2 hours on this blog giggling.  Oh my, this DIY girl is funny!   I could sit here for hours reading her archives………oh wait, I just did.

Tidbits from the Tremaynes

The queen of DIY!  Not only does she make cute kids (really cute) and tells funny stories about them, she has a hammer and she’s not afraid to use it. She is obsessed with molding.

Her pantry door project will make you weep.  Here’s the before.  Simple, ordinary and nothing special.pantry door make overNow look……WOW!  I still think it’s a different house.  pantry door make overThen she got cocky and decided to just take the cabinet doors off. open cupboards She added molding under each shelf……..can you see that?  And she added a backing.  She could have stopped with the white backing, and I would have thought she was talented.  Adding the molding is pure genius.

More molding down below.  And I’m pretty sure she did that subway art too.  Beautiful.

Got extra molding?  Why not make a shoe rack?  show rackWell of course……that’s just what I was thinking.

No worries.  In case you were wondering if she does anything that doesn’t have molding, she did this Pottery Barn Inspired mirror.  She has a tutorial for this and many of her other projects.  She’s a crafty one.  Another you’ll enjoy.  pottery barn inspired mirror

    Loving that molding…I guess I’ll just have to get out my darling’s saw and get some learning done on cuts. Blessings!

    I bet she bought a finish nailer and wants to make sure she gets her money’s worth out of it. 😉 Going to have to check out her blog. Thanks for sharing it.

    I wish she was my friend. I am intimidated to think about doing my own moulding right now, but I will take a look at her blog to see if she could talk me through it.

    I updated my TCB links. It took less than a minute, so why have I been content to wait for the old links to process? Thanks for stopping by!

    A friend of mine, whom I had known since first grade, just died way too young after a four-year fight with breast cancer.
