DIY Vintage-Style Farmer’s Market Crate & How to Stencil with Paper

DIY Vintage-Style Farmer's Market Crate

The wood crates like I used for this project are pretty easy to find at craft stores. Mine is actually my Kappa Delta sorority crate from college and it’s about 10 years old. It was already painted white and I didn’t really have to do any aging to it since it was a bit beat up […]

Colorful and Bright Porch Makeover on a Budget

Before & After: $100 and 24 hour Porch Makeover

With all three kids out of school right now and one who still naps, we spend a lot of time at home so we recently decided to get the kids a small trampoline. Our backyard is tiny so we needed something compact and I wanted something that let them burn some energy. The plus, they’re […]

DIY Craft Room: Jumbo Framed Pegboard Wall

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 […]

Antique Hutch Makeover {with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint}

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 Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®}

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 […]

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 […]

DIY {eat} Kitchen Wall Décor

DIY {eat} Kitchen Sign Wall Décor

The “before” version of this sign has been hanging in this spot for months. It used to be a Pier One mirror. Last year, I spray painted the framework grey and painted the mirror with chalkboard paint. It just didn’t finish well so it sat like that forever. I finally got around to re-finishing it […]

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 […]

Boy’s Room Mini-Makeover {with Chalk Paint Dresser}

Chalk Paint Dresser/Boy's Room Mini-Makeover

My son started Kindergarten this year so it was high-time I gave him a proper big boy room…on a budget! I spent around $50 to give his room a little overhaul. With moving as much as we do, our furniture gets scratched up like you wouldn’t believe so my main part of the makeover was […]

DIY Glittery Cups

These Pinspired cups were so fun and easy (albeit a bit messy thanks to all the glitter)! Even my 4 year old helped make them. They make a great homemade gift too (I’m thinking my kids teachers would love these)!  Just pop a Starbucks gift card inside. As far as I can tell, the original […]
