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 […]

I realize I’m a little too late for the real grass part tutorial for you grow it in time for this Easter (sorry!), but you can “Pin” it to do next year! And you can grow some in mini pots to use as decorative grass for a window or mantel, which I’m also doing! Not […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

French Typography Trunk Makeover

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