Rustic Barnwood Planter

Easy DIY Barnwood Hanging Planter

I have this huge blank wall in the room off my kitchen that I am slowly filling up with a fun farmer’s market style gallery wall. It’s technically supposed to be an eat-in kitchen, but we don’t want a table in there – it would be just a bit much….

Mid-Century Hutch Refinish

Mid-Century Hutch Refinish

Do you ever have one of those projects that takes infinitely longer than you think it will? For me, those are usually because I either don’t know what I’m doing and mess things up, or I procrastinate because it’s a big project and I think it will take a ton…

Colorful Fabric Basket

Simple and Sweet 30 Minute Fabric Basket

I just love quick and simple sewing projects that are useful, too! This quick and easy fabric basket is so fun to make – it goes together in a about a half hour. It can be used to hold so many things too! It would be great for crafts, toys,…

DIY Wooden Tray with Rope Handles

Colorful Summer Serving Tray

I’m a huge fan of vibrant colors. I look through all those gorgeous photos of neutral rooms and I admire them – but for me, I always go back to fun, colorful decor! This new colorful summer serving tray fits in just great here – and I had so much…

Flamingo Wall Decor

Flamingo Shutter Wall Art

I’ve been dying to make something cute and summery for my wall, I just wasn’t sure what. At Snap last month, a friend gave me this darling wooden flamingo and I knew that it would be the great basis for some wall art. I just love how this flamingo shutter…

Folk Art Milk Paint Bench Refinish

Milk Paint Gossip Bench Refinish

I can’t resist sweet little vintage furniture pieces. My house is starting to look like an antique booth! A few weeks ago I found this darling little gossip bench, and I just fell in love. She was a little sad looking, with her chippy stain and dark green seat cover….

Sewing Ironing Board Organizer

Easy DIY Ironing Board Organizer

I don’t know about you, but when I’m in the middle of a sewing project, the end of my ironing board usually ends up being a hot mess. With scissors, pins stuck every which way, marking pens and measuring tapes, it can be pretty messy, and all those things take…

Pallet Sign Painting Party

Pallet Painting Party

One of my favorite things about living in California wasn’t the beach or the theme parks (though those things were awesome) – it was my group of crafty girlfriends! We would get together every few months for a “Pinterest Party” and hang out, eat lots of yummy food, and just craft…

Spring Bunny Pillow

Simple and Sweet Wonderland Spring Pillow

I am in full Spring-Decorating around here – are you? It’s finally been in the upper 60’s all week and I feel like I’m starting to thaw. It’s delightful. So I’m adding all sorts of flowers and greenery and cute Easter things around the house and I love it! I…

Dining Room Makeover

Dining Room Makeover Reveal

This post was sponsored by Ace Hardware. When we moved into our new house last fall, I knew that redoing the dining room would be one of my first projects. We have stained wood dining furniture, and with the brown wallpapers in the room and the wood flooring, everything felt…

Tea Cup Pendant

Teacup Pendant Light Shades

When we moved into our new house last fall, I had several projects on my list that I knew I wanted to do right way. Things that even though we couldn’t make huge changes to the house, like paint every room or redo flooring, would still make the house feel…

Retro Style Shutter Shelf

Vintage Style Cross Stitch Shelf

I am so excited about today’s project – for several reasons! You know I have a weakness for oversized cross stitch right? (If not, check out my Cross Stitch chair). Well I picked up this old shutter (I think that’s what it is??) at a Barn sale a few months…

Easy Fabric and Felt Coasters

Colorful Framed Fabric Coasters

I’ve been having so much fun setting up our new house, decorating, arranging furniture – and just in general getting all settled in. It’s been years since we have owned our own house and I can’t tell you how much fun it is putting just as many nails I want…

Fall Coffee Table Display

Cozy Holiday Living Room Decor

Fall Pumpkin Decorating

Preserving Memories with HP Sprout

This post is sponsored by HP. I will confess to being a huge sentimentalist. I will save just about anything if it has a special memory attached to it. And while that’s no problem with vacation souvenirs or concert tickets, it is a little trickier with natural items. It’s our…
