DIY Craft Room: Jumbo Framed Pegboard Wall

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve been getting a few sneak peeks of this project we completed last weekend. Prior to a week ago, my craft “space” was the laundry room, which was shared with the dogs and the laundry machines. As it only had a tiny counter with a sink in […]

Color Outside the Lines Wood Sign with Button Wire Hanger

If you’ve followed me awhile, you know how much I love certain things like creating vintage-y wood signs, typography, Chalk Paint and my Silhouette CAMEO. While I was attaching the wire hanger, I randomly thought it would be fun to thread buttons on and I just happened to have some bright colored ones that matched […]

DIY Super-Easy Raised Herb Beds {from old drawers!}

We’ve had these drawers in our garage for months. They were part of an old bed and my husband was about to throw them out during some Spring cleaning. Then he stopped and said, “…Unless you want me to add legs and you can grow your herbs in them”. He’s genius, right? The beds themselves […]

When Olivia of the blog DIY Mother, emailed me about doing a guest post, I was immediately sold on her idea to DIY some Anthropologie Coasters. And then a few days later she sent me the pictures and I was in L.O.V.E….and I knew you guys would be too! I mean, really, how cute are […]

Spring Porch & Burlap Deco Mesh Wreath

Spring Burlap Deco Mesh Wreath

I have to admit the big, ornate deco mesh wreaths, although impressive and pretty, aren’t usually my taste. But when they came out with the burlap deco mesh, they grew on me. This was the first one I’ve made and it was surprisingly easy and the metal wreath forms are so inexpensive! I wasn’t prepared […]

Antique Hutch Makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

My husband loves browsing Craigslist, and lately it has been to my benefit! First, he found this old Tea Cart I made over and earlier this week he found this Antique Hutch for $100 (the former owner’s paid almost $300). We’ve been wanting to give the kid’s playroom (which is technically the dining room) a […]

Tea Cart Makeover with ASCP

My husband is always looking on Craigslist and he stumbled upon this adorable tea cart not too long ago and I immediately fell in love with it. We snagged it for $55 from a sweet couple looking to make more room for their grandchildren. This is what it looked like before: There’s a little handle […]

If you’ve been wanting to try Chalk Paint but haven’t yet, this is a great little project to test the waters! Below is a before and after of the knife block. This would also make a great handmade gift idea for Mother’s Day or even Christmas. I started by painting the whole knife block with […]

French Typography Trunk Makeover

French Typography Trunk Makeover {with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®}

We’ve been working on making our family room feel more “homey”. Last fall, we moved into base housing (Air Force) and the houses aren’t bad but they are very basic with white walls that are a bit drab so we added drapes and re-arranged (again), which left us needing and end table between our two […]
