15 Fall projects from Our Little Red House.

It has been one of those years, been some ups and downs in our life here at Our Little Red House. I’m still hanging in there, trying to blog when I can. I wish I had more time to stage my fun craft photos and work on my DIY’s which I love to do but…

DIY French door bookshelf.

Remember that old french door I rescued from the city dump when I brought it home and made it pretty again? I painted the glass with transparent glass paint I made using clear Elmer’s glue and acrylic paints. Acrylics work well but food coloring works better. I added lights to the back so the door…
