Wow, feels like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve done a round-up post…not sure why?! When I realized it’s the last day of June today, I thought maybe I should bring the round-up posts back. I mean, we’re all busy people living our busy lives and I’m sure you don’t check this page every day…or every week…or […]

Chalkboard Fridge Update

I finally tackled something that has been on the To-Do List forever. Like, we’re talking YEARS. It wasn’t an expensive project, and didn’t take long, so once I saw what a huge improvement it made, I could KICK MYSELF! One of the very first posts I ever wrote was on our Chalkboard Fridge: Back when […]

DIY Chicken Wire Bulletin Board

If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I love nothing more than decorating on the thrifty side. When I can create something for a fraction of the cost of buying it at a store, I get so excited. This project is one of those. And I can’t wait to share it with you, […]

Easiest DIY Cotton Wreath EVER and Another Ladder…

DIY cotton wreath

So, I feel like a broken record, buuuuttttt….I was at Hobby Lobby the other day… (you really can’t blame me – they are KILLING. IT. these days…and also in my defense, it was the same day I was there getting the frame for my shiplap project) and spotted this garland of cotton. AND it was […]

Customizing New Crates to Look Old…or something?

Um, wasn’t sure what to title this one, as you can probably guess. It’ll make sense once you’ve read the post…I hope. 😉 Let me explain… So I bought two of those unfinished crates from Michaels (actually, I bought one – I already had one in storage for YEARS now, waiting to do a project […]

A two-for-one today! Another Project Nook post – it’s really coming along and has totally become my favorite spot. I am here ALL. THE. TIME. Can’t find me? Look in the nook first, chances are good I’m hanging out right here: Seriously. Talk about the best idea we ever had, sticking a nook back here. We […]

A New Stain for The Coffee Table

When we got our coffee table a while back, I liked it a lot, but the finish on the top never floated my boat too much. It wasn’t terrible (obviously, I’ve lived with it for a few years now! ;), but it was always one of those projects I had in the back of my […]

A Cutting Board + Kitchen Stool = A Table?

You may think I’ve completely gone off my rocker with this one, folks. You see, we got a new bed last Fall. We went from queen to king, and when that happened, our large nightstands no longer fit. We basically have only one wall to place our bed, due to bathrooms and closets and all […]

Giving the Kitchen Island a Makeover…and A Good Decorating Lesson

kitchen island makeover

Once upon a time, not too long ago, I gave my kitchen a makeover. It was red and aqua and bright and fun. As you know, I change my decorating style just about as often as I change my clothes (ok, *slight* exaggeration), so naturally, I’m due for changing things up a little. Or a lot, depending […]
