DIY Boy’s Room Bunk Beds

DIY Boy's Room Bunkbeds

For several months now, despite the Enchanted Forest Fairytale Room I did for my 4 year old daughter, which has a nice big queen bed since it doubles as our guest room, she and my 5 ½ year old son have chosen to share the twin bed in my son’s room. So we started looking […]

Shakespeare-Inspired Wood Plank Sign {Bedroom Décor}

Shakespeare Inspired Wood Sign

Whenever we move, our bedroom is always something that never really gets decorated and this time around, I didn’t want that to be true, so while we were homebound for a week during the snowstorm last week, I finally got to work on some wall décor. The chevron sign was around $16 at Target and […]

DIY Family Command Center

DIY Family Command Center

For the first few months in this house, this nook was more of a junk piling area. There just isn’t much storage in the house and no basement. So to help get organized, I asked my husband to put shelves…pretty much everywhere. A few weeks ago I shared our DIY Shelved Gallery Wall. I started […]

Enchanted Forest Fairytale Room

Enchanted Forest Fairytale Room

With moving like we do, I’ve really never taken the time to decorate my kids’ rooms. Now that they’re getting older, I really wanted them to have a space to call their own. Last week I showed you my 5 year old son’s room and this week it’s onto my 3 1/2 year old daughter’s Enchanted […]

Getting Organized with Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery {and $50 Staples Gift Card Giveaway!}

Getting Organized with Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery

Oh, how an email from someone in the Martha Stewart offices always makes my day. This time I was offered to review a bunch of goodies from the Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery line (available at Staples). I’ve done several product reviews for Martha Stewart products and I never fail to be pleasantly surprised […]

My Favorite Packaged Snacks for Kids {Without HFCS, GMOs, or Artificial Anything!}

My Favorite Packaged Snacks for Kids

While we try to focus on whole foods, sometimes the convenience of packaged foods win. It’s undeniably great with kids…especially when you’re busy and on-the-go. We just replace the typical kid snacks with a healthier version. And no, we don’t give them Jelly Beans or Toaster Pastries daily…even the organic ones! If you came to […]

Chalk Paint Furniture Makeover

Chalk Paint Furniture Makeover

  This all started when my Mom and Stepdad moved into a new house a few weekends ago and offered us this desk/dresser/hutch set. I had never re-finished a piece of furniture in my life before so I simply started Googling and Pinning. That’s when I discovered the growing trend of using Annie Sloan’s Chalk […]

Vintage-Inspired Summer Mantel {with free printable}


  It’s the first day of summer! While I don’t love the heat, I’m a big fan of sunshine, sun-kissed cheeks, babies in nothing but diapers, long days, real lemonade, grilling out with friends and family and air conditioning! My mantel has been sitting empty for over a month so I finally got around to […]

Turn a Spare Room into an Organized Closet

One great thing about this home is that it has plenty of rooms. One thing is does not: closet space!  The upstairs has a bit of an awkward layout too, which I’m guessing is due to the time it was divided into several apartments.  You have to walk through the master bedroom to get into my craft room (a former […]

Springtime Mantel

I am so ready for Springtime, but apparently Mother Nature is not quite yet!  It’s cold, cloudy, and just plain dreary outside this week. So, I decided to get Spring started inside our house. This mantel was really easy to put together too. The candlesticks I had painted grey in a previous makeover so I just […]
