Repurposed Egg Basket planter

Sometimes I am an "over-thinker". Like right now as I wrote that sentence I spent a lot of time trying to decide if overthinker is a real word and trying to avoid the little red squiggle telling me I spelled it wrong. To me it is one word- my word that pops into my head when I find myself spending a lot of time trying to figure things out. I put it in quotes ...continue reading

This weekend, I made a diy vertical tabletop planter and I am pretty thrilled with how it turned out. Originally, I wanted to make a large vertical succulent planter to hang on the deck but I don't really have a place to hang it. Also, small succulents are about $3 each which adds up to more than I wanted to spend. I decided to scale it back and diy a ...continue reading

I also packed away my winter clothes, I am officially done with winter so I am taking an "Out of sight, out of mind" approach and hoping the warmer weather will follow. Quite a few years ago, I bought over sized eggs on clearance from Michael's. ...continue reading

Trash to Treasure Dining Table Makeover

This is the story of my trash to treasure dining table makeover. If you follow Teeny Ideas on Instagram, you may have seen the table I got off the curb.

With the holidays coming, I couldn't wait any longer and spent the month of ...continue reading
