When You Can’t Find The Perfect Table…You Make One for $14! (And a New Rug for the Nook!)

I am SO excited to share this project with you today! As you might know from previous posts/Instastories/Facebook, we’re giving the nook a fresh new look. It all started when I moved the round table that was there…this one: …over to the other side of the family room when we rearranged in here: So that […]

The OTHER Wall in the New Family Room Setup…

If you follow my Instastories, you may have seen that I was SO ready and prepared to blog about the FINISHED “Other Wall” of the Family Room the other day. We rearranged on New Year’s Day, and I’ve been showing you glimpses of the new space, but this one wall – the wall with the […]

June 2017 Roundup!

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…

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 […]

Staining a Table and a New Shag Rug

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 […]
