Staining Pressure Treated Wood – No Waiting Required

I am not a patient person.

I do not like to wait. On anything.

Good things come to those who wait, right? Well, I guess I’m more of a go out there and get it done now kind of girl.

Case in point, our new deck.

Yep, I said new deck. Over the past month, Grunt Labor built a deck. Isn’t he just awesome, y’all?

Of course that deck was built with pressure treated wood. Many people say you should wait at least six months before staining pressure treated wood.

Six months. 


Ain’t nobody got time for that.

So being a real rebel, I stained that pressure treated wood after only two weeks of the deck being completed.

DIY Party Wreath with Polka Dots and Poms

Hey y’all! I’m back from a much needed vacation. I hope you guys enjoyed the great guests I had here for you last week!

Vacation was great, but I’m happy to be back here driving you guys crazy.

When I saw this polka dot oilcloth  from Online Fabric Store, it was too fun not to do something with. The first thing that came to mind was a fun DIY wreath for a party!

Because everyone needs a party wreath, right?

Ok, maybe just me.

A few weeks ago, my mother-in-law and I were wondering through the garage gathering items for a yard sale and what did we stumble across?

My father-in-law’s old army locker.

Just sitting there.

Waiting to be made into something awesome.

Hi there! I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and I’m so happy to be here while Jenna is spending some relaxing time away with her hubby! Lucky duck!

Today I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite rooms. My husband and I have been busy adding character and cottage/ farmhouse-y style to our newly built home one room at time. In the mean time, we’re enjoying the progress!

Our kitchen is easily one of my very favorite rooms…

A Coastal Massachusetts Home Tour

I am taking vacation this week, y’all. Grunt Labor is on spring break, so I’m claiming this week as my spring break as well. I’ve lined up some fabulous gals to introduce you to this week, though.
One of my bucket list trips is to visit the north eastern seaboard one day. Jen from Migonis Home calls it home already. You guys are going to love her home….
I am Jen Migonis from Migonis Home blog and am thrilled to be posting over here while Jenna enjoys a vaca with her main man… My husband and I bought a house in Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA about four years ago. We loved the location and the bones of the house but what we weren’t too wild about was how non-functional it was. There was no insulation throughout the house (big problem when you live in New England and there are an unfortunate amount of sub freezing days six months of the year) and the original windows were letting in major drafts. And that’s not even talking about the cosmetic stuff. Pop on over to see my house tour with the before photos.
Let’s start on the outside. Promise you won’t write me off after seeing how much work needs to happen out here? Please remember we are just finishing up about six months of winter. In January we put a new front porch on our house and because it’s been ridculously cold we haven’t been able to repaint except for tester areas of a new paint color. I bet our neighbors love us. :)
