DIY projects (Do It Yourself)

Do It Yourself can be very satisfying or can make you wish you just bought it yourself. For me, I like a mix of both. On these pages I will highlight what I have done, things I have bought, things I have admired from others. And if I wish, some direction links to spare you the DIY drama that’s inevitable with such endeavors.

The origins of the #thoughtfulspot started with a set of Adirondack chairs with chipped red paint, I purchased for $40 from an ad on

I stripped, sanded, and painted them purple and my favorite spot was born.
