DIY

We did it!! We finally finished our DIY painted and stenciled porch floor, and boy…it was a doozy to complete. A few years ago, we updated this space by adding more poured concrete and a pergola [HERE], and now it’s even more fun out here! If I had it to do over again, would I […]

After we reworked our landscaping out here this summer, we were left with a pretty large, blank wall and whole bunch of baby plants that don’t do much to add interest quite yet. We decided to try our hand at creating a DIY invisible wire trellis on a brick wall, and the whole project cost […]

I’m ready for fall, y’all. The temps might still say “Summer,” but my heart is screaming “FALL!!!” I’m not quite ready for pumpkins to invade the house quite yet, but I wanted to gently bring some fall to the front door with this DIY fall wreath recipe I use whenever creating wreaths from scratch!

So I found this AWESOME carved wood coffee table for a steal on CraigsList, and despite its orange-y stain and highly lacquered finish, I could see the potential underneath. If you’ve ever wondered how to bleach wood furniture for that natural, pale wood look, here ya go! Note: it’s a lot of work up front, […]

We recently painted the exterior of our brick home to make it feel more like “us,” and we also added cedar shutters. See the finished exterior HERE! Once we did that, our very dark (and very weathered) wood front door no longer went with the exterior of the house. Instead of spending additional money to […]

laundry room refresh open shelves

We’ve been putting off this project ever since we moved into our home almost 7 years ago, and now we’re wondering why we waited so long! This 2 day laundry room renovation was a long time coming, and it feels so good to be done. Looking back, I think I was (sadly and embarrassingly) too […]

My four little women love to look through Pinterest with me and choose crafts for us to do together. A few weeks ago, they chose a DIY felt flower mobile! The photo inspo they chose were a little advanced for little hands, so we simplified the DIY felt flower mobile to be a bit more […]

During these weird times of self-isolation, I find myself craving a spot of happiness in the form of growing things. Now, let’s be real — I’m NO plant lady. In fact, I’m quite the opposite, actually! I like to refer to myself as “plant challenged,” and I can’t even keep alive succulents. However, about a […]

Whatcha been up to, guys? Sitting around in your jammies all day, losing track of the ACTUAL day of the week like us? Thought so. 😉If you need a pretty easy project both bust the boredom and up your PJ game, look no further than DIY tie dye pajamas! These took about 30 minutes of […]

Hey, friends! Spring vibes are here! Wanted to add a bit o’ green to this gorgeous Amelie mirror gifted by Arhaus, so I grabbed some greenery, floral wire and wire cutters and went to work! I love how it adds a touch of whimsy and spring green to the space, plus the mirror serves as […]

My girls love to scroll through Pinterest with me to get craft and DIY ideas, and you know what? For as long as they think it is the BEST THING EVER to do projects with Mom, I’m gonna make those projects happen! Love doing things with my girlies. Today they made the cutest heart “balloons” […]

*this post is sponsored by Walmart – thank you for supporting the brands that support our blog! Over the years living in this home, our girls have switched rooms and room mates so many times that we stopped trying very hard at keeping their closets organized and user-friendly. Now that they are pretty much settled […]
