The Home Depot Garden Club



It's summer time and I've been working on a lot of outside projects.  Planting trees, berry bushes, and flowers.  To see more click here.  I know you've been working on your gardens and landscapes too.  Don't you wish that sometimes you had a little bit of help.  Maybe someone to turn to for project ideas, how to videos, a regional to-do-list and expert advice?  Well, now you do and it's FREE to join!


When you join the club you'll get a $5 off $50 purchase coupon and $300 in email savings annually.

Here's an idea for a candle lit planter, from The Home Depot! They give you great outdoor ideas and show you how to make them.


I think I know what I want to try with my coupon.  What are you going to do with yours?

Antique Vanity with Mirror More Yard Sale Finds


I hate to show you the junk (future projects) and toys in my garage but you have to see what I found at a garage sale.  Isn't it beautiful?  The lady let it go for just $45.00!  I'm not sure how I'm going to refinish this vanity!  I just knew that I had to have it!

Here are a few vanity makeovers that I've found.  Click the picture to visit the source!




So what do you think?  Do you have any vanity that you have refinished?  I'd love to see it, leave a link in the comments.

Table and Chairs a Great Yard Sale Find

I've made it to a few yard sales so far this summer.  I am so excited I have to share with you what I found. 


What, you can't see it? Look behind the bush.


There it is.  Isn't it precious?  This is a really odd spot to landscape in the front flowerbed.  Don't you think that it's the perfect place for a small table and chairs? The kids already like to play house in this spot.  This will be perfect for them, too.  I only paid $15 for this set.  The lady who sold it played on it as a kid.  She said that it was at least 40 years old.  It's made of metal and wood.  It looks lovely in white but I want to give it a little more character.  I see a makeover in the future!


This little hydrangea is getting bigger every year,  I can't wait to see it fully grown.  I hope this inspires you to visit a few yard sales this weekend! Be sure to follow me so you can see what else I found.

Stenciled Lazy Susan


I had a reader recently comment that "Sometimes people show room makeovers and before and after pics and make it seem like it was a quick/no big deal kind of thing."  I find that to be so true.  This post will not just be a quick before and after!  You are going to see every step and every mess-up in-between.  If at first you don't succeed, try, try, again.
