My husband works in a high-rise building but before that he used to be woodworker. So on the weekends he is always busy doing projects for me. So I am going to share a few projects he has done. Of course after a long week of work and wrangling 4 kids, he loves to enjoy some SToK™ Cold-Brew Iced Coffee while he is building. SToK™ is the brand of geeked-out coffee that provides an elevated, coffee experience so he can keep his creative juices flowing. Lots of times he doesn’t even have plans for what he is going to build!
This week he is finishing up my barn door chicken coop so I headed over to Walmart to find some SToK™ Cold-Brew Iced Coffee to help fuel his fire so he could get it done. I found the SToK™ Cold-Brew Iced Coffee in the refrigerator section near the milk and other cold beverages. SToK™ Cold-Brew Iced Coffee is made with Arabica coffee beans from Brazil and is pure coffee with no weird ingredients.
So if you need some inspiration for some DIY projects in your house, check out these my husband has been working on!
My dad brought back some old barn wood from Oregon and he let us use some to build a barn door.
This door makes my heart happy! The house we bought had a lot of doors taken out and removed so we were trying to decide what to do about it. I thought this door would look fantastic in our living room and I was right!
To get the specific instructions on this table, go here. My husband built this for me as a Valentines Day present. After 11 years, he has figured out what I really like as a gift!
I was given a beautiful barn door by one of my friends but the problem with it was, not only was it too heavy to hang in the house, but some of the wood on it wasn’t good. So my husband decided to repurpose the barn door into a chicken coop! He spent under $100 on this whole project! The only thing left to do is paint it.
I used to HATE the cabinet our tv stood on because not only did the drawers attract junk, but it always had tons of fingerprints on it. So I asked my husband to fix it up for me! He used more of the barn wood from Oregon, took out all the drawers, then used a nail gun and turned it into a rustic cabinet!
Then we put a canvas print of some aspen trees on the front. I love how it turned out!
We had this enormous white wall and we couldn’t agree on a color to paint it so my husband just nailed up more barn wood and turned it into a wood panel wall. A little tip, if you don’t have access to barn wood or if you do and decide its too expensive, go to Home depot or Lowes. I found distressed wood at both places you can use!
Our kitchen is very dark but the island had this bright white tile on it that I didn’t care for. So my husband covered it with wood and I love it!
And he couldn’t have done all these projects without SToK™ It’s cold brewed and slow brewed coffee, that is strong enough to get his creative juices flowing.
Young and quirky Louisa “Lou” Clark (Emilia Clarke) moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. Her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker left paralyzed from an accident two years earlier. Will’s cynical outlook starts to change when Louisa shows him that life is worth living. As their bond deepens, their lives and hearts change in ways neither one could have imagined.
I cannot wait to see this movie! What about you?!

My husband and I have been talking about doing a 5k for a while now and I think I found the perfect one for us to do! The Stadium Obstacle Challenge event, Saturday, June 11, 2016, 4:30-9:00 p.m., 1701 Bryant Street, Denver is going to be so much fun I can’t wait! There will be Obstacles, Music 5K Fun Run and a Music Festival!
Denver Broncos, 24 Hour Fitness® and Children’s Hospital Colorado and UCHealth, the inaugural event includes a music 5K fun run, a 10-station obstacle course that tests the determination and skill of amateur and accomplished road warriors alike—and includes the towering Warped Wall!—plus a music festival featuring some of the region’s most popular DJs and live bands.
The event is part of the Denver Broncos’ Health & Wellness platform that aims to educate and motivate Broncos fans on the importance of introducing and making healthy lifestyle choices. My husband and I have been married for 11 years on May 28th and we have been trying to think of something fun to do for our anniversary and since we are trying to get in shape, this 5k is what we are going to do together!
Event registration includes a special Swag Bag with a Broncos Stadium Challenge t-shirt, 24 Hour Fitness branded drawstring bag, sunglasses and sweatband—the perfect attire for the fashionable fitness and music festival crowd. Plus, each fun run race bib including an RFID (radio-frequency identification) chip that links to a timing component for the obstacle course so that you can compete to beat everyone in your path. The chip also captures photos throughout the race which participants can download from the event website by looking up their music run bib number.
The full evening of fitness, fun and the music festival also includes food vendors, game stations that test your brain power and physical skill, and a special warm-up dance party prior to the music 5K fun run, presented by the rock-star Group X instructors of 24 Hour Fitness.
