I wanted a Knit Ottoman. Do I need to explain why? They are cute and functional! I saw one I liked at a retailer… but it was pretty expensive. I can’t even remember exactly how much but definitely over $100. Enough for me to be hesitant, off to google! There has to be a free knit pattern out there. Spoiler, THERE IS and I found it!Read more

I’ve been planning on doing this for a year and it’s finally done, and doesn’t it look amazing! The hardest part was collecting frames. I didn’t want to spend $200 on a gallery wall (which could have easily happened when you’re spending $10 on each frame). Here is how I built my Wall o’ Fame for about $40 dollars Canadian.
