Snohomish Co-op True Value in Snohomish, WA

Favorite True Value Product

I somehow manage to involve wood in almost every single one of my projects, so I always have a can of Minwax Dark Walnut Stain on hand. It’s my absolutely favorite shade and goes with just about everything!

Best Quick Tip

Don’t be afraid to try something new. We all have to start somewhere. Just take one step at a time and you will amaze yourself with what you are capable of!

About

In June 2011, I retired my leather-bound notebook, pencil skirts and heels for a life as a stay-at-home mom. Shortly after, Design, Dining and Diapers was born. My blog reflects what I do in a given day: creating new designs and spaces, making gluten-free meals while changing diapers and chasing smiles. I’m not a professional, nor am I perfect. I’m just a stay-at-home mom who gets giddy when trying new things and making something look pretty (or taste yummy) without spending a lot of money. I’m all about making things for less by upcycling thrift store finds, using what’s on hand and transforming dollar store finds.
