11 stunning and easy container gardening ideas using rain gutters

It's spring and with spring it's time to prep and plant the garden. I do enjoy fresh vegetables and pretty flowers. What I don't enjoy is the cost of fancy containers or the battle with the slugs here on the Olympic Peninsula. So if there's a way where I can save money and make gardening a wee bit easier...I'm all for it. Hence this round-up of some pretty cool ways to re- purpose rain gutters into containers.

Guest Bedroom $100 Room Challenge

Oh my! I can’t believe I am doing this. For two years my feet have been dangling in the pool of blogging. Post here. Post there. Rarely a post everywhere. My social media footprint was me just moving my toes back and forth. Never going any deeper than I was comfortable.

DIY faux shiplap

I'm not sure when I began to actually verbalize my master bedroom dream to Hubby. He's the kind of guy who is pretty darn content with the way things are. Each time I'd bring up an idea, he would poo-poo it. Tell me the room was fine...etc., etc. But you know, happy wife, happy life and all that. Poor guy.

Affordable Dresser Refresh with Paint

I had this vision that one day I would have a beautiful master suite. Something grown-up...polished. A place where my mind sighed every time I entered.

Rustic style laundry room makeover

The dirty room--dun, dun, duuun. I'm pretty sure when they designed our modular home the laundry room was an after thought. It's a bit of an eyesore especially when sitting down to eat a meal. It desperately needed a makeover that didn't break the bank. Preferably a rustic farm-style makeover.

Could I create a space that was functional, stylish and didn't cost me a thing? What if I already had everything I needed; I just needed to re-imagine the space?
