Products I use..

I bought this latex wood filler at KMart and it's worked really well for me too. I use filler way more than glue, so I go through a LOT! It's super easy to apply and sands smooth once dried. Oh, check out that funky thing on top of the filler. The kids found it in the yard and were playing with it. I was afraid it was poisonous so I took it away. Come to find out it grows on our tree! Isn't that weird? Luke put it in a bag of water and calls it his shark. Cute, huh???

I like the Gorilla wood glue. I'm always filling or gluing something.. This works really well..

Kilz spray primer is the BEST primer in the world. Trust me, I've tried a bajillion different kinds. I've tried Krylon, Kilz in a gallon size (awful experience), I've tried painting without primer, you name it, I've tried it. This is the b-e-s-t! $5 at Wal-Mart and worth EVERY penny!


  1. That thing on your filler is a seed pod from a magnolia, and yes, they are poisonous. lol. But then, most of landscaping is poisonous. Most things you'd have to eat a lot of them to really get sick though, and they probably don't taste too good. Anyways. Fun projects!

  2. Someday I'll use all this info and do a project...maybe just in my dreams...but at least now I can cheat and just follow your instructions :)

  3. thanks for sharing your products, on your next piece will you explain step by step what you do cause on my furniture i just have pretty much sanded and spray painted then put a finish on it but then they have some issues. you're awesome!
