A Stylish Rental Kitchen Makeover on a Tight Budget

by Jennifer Farley

This little kitchen was the remaining evidence of an attempted house flip gone bad. The old home had great bones, but a few serious structural issues, discovered once the previous owner/flipper opened up all the old walls.

DIY Boutonnieres for your Big Day

When I was a little girl, I was a part of my local 4-H club (for those who weren't lucky enough to be a part of it, 4-H is a community club where kids take classes and can present their projects at their local county and state fairs and it was SO MUCH FUN). One of the 4-H classes I took was floral arranging. When I signed up for the class, I thought, "Piece of cake. Flowers in a vase. Boom, done." Not so. There is so much more to arranging...
