Ryobi Mower and String Trimmer Review

Ryobi 40V Lithium-Ion String Trimmer and Mower review via Our Southern Home

**This is a sponsored post by Our Southern Home for Ryobi Outdoors. I was provided product. All opinions are my own. My opinion….Ryobi Rocks!!** This summer, I’ve had the joy of testing out various Ryobi Outdoor products. I’ll admit though that my hubby is ultimately the one that uses them on a regular basis. He has always been a gas-powered guy. Let me tell you…..I’ve been watching. He hasn’t cranked any of our gas-powered outdoor tools this summer when he

Farmhouse Coffee Table Makeover

Today is the day……Themed Furniture Makeover Day! This month’s theme is Two Tone. I’m sharing my Farmhouse Coffee Table Makeover. It’s a simple change that really helped to brighten the rather dark space. I only painted the base to give this table a fresh new look.  Below you will find all the other two toned furniture projects from my monthly group! Be sure to visit them all! Here it is in place before I painted it.  Disclaimer: This is a

DIY Fall Wreath

See how I took apart my old fall wreath that was in need of freshening up! I reused it to create a newup to date look for our Fall front entrance. Visit Our Southern Home for the details! #fall #falldecor #fallwreath

It’s beginning to look a lot like fall here at our house.  I love fall….soon I’ll be pulling out my boots and scarves. The outdoor fire pit will get lots of weekend use on those chilly evenings. Today I’m sharing my DIY fall wreath using materials from an old wreath. Change the look by using upholstery tape to add an additional layer of texture. I knew that I wanted a new front door wreath this fall. I’ve been using the

One Dresser Three Ways

One vintage styled dresser used in three ways from Our Southern Home

  I’ve been decorating a home now for quite a while now. One thing that I’ve learned throughout the process is to pick furniture pieces with versatility! If you treat a nightstand as just a nightstand…then that’s what you have! What if you used that nightstand as an end table, a computer printer center or maybe as small linen storage in a bath! Take my vintage styled dresser from Sauder as an example. Back in June, I showed you how

Fall Mantel and a Craft Project

Fall mantel and quick and easy DIY bunting from Our Southern Home #fall

I confess…..it sure doesn’t feel like fall here in the Upstate of South Carolina. I’m hoping that if I act like it is…cooler weather will quickly be on its way. Are you with me? I just pulled out all the boxes from the attic Saturday and started with our family room mantel. My goal this year with fall decorating is to keep it pretty simple using what I have with the exception of a few real pumpkins when they become

Decoupaged Desk

Vintage desk painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White and decoupaged drawers for an unexpected surprise from Our Southern Home

Well……I finally finished my teen daughter’s desk. It has been quite the work in progress. It started out as a Craigslist find that was in pretty good shape with a bad, dingy paint job. It was one of our beach finds. Nothing like a monthly furniture challenge to get you motivated to finish the job! If you haven’t, now is the time to learn to decoupage. You can decoupage crafts like ornaments to furniture! This month’s theme is Decoupage. I’ve
