So, as I mentioned in my Christmas Tree Crate Stand post, I was LOVING all the flocked trees I was seeing on Instagram this year!! They had me ready to run down and spend hundreds on a new tree…of course, that was only for a short period of time, then that famous little lady popped into my head and said, “Why spend all that money on a new tree…I bet there’s a way to flock your own that you already have!!” I can’t get away from that lady, but I’m kinda glad because she saves me tons of money!! 🙂
Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree…I am so excited about this simple post on my DIY Christmas Tree Crate Stand!! I know it’s a little late considering it is already the 14th of December, but… yes, I did JUST get my tree up last week!! Lol!! And even if your tree is already up, and you are using some other skirt of sorts, you can easily change it out… or pin this idea for next year! My tree was already up and decorated when I decided I wanted a crate instead of a skirt this year, and so I just built it around the base of my tree!!
Hey there!! Happy Friday Eve!! I finally have a new post for you all…it’s two super easy shelves I modified from cute jewelry holders I saw at PB Teen! I needed a little something above my son’s bed, and although I had come up with many other FUN solutions…none of them seemed to work out. The PB Teen inspired suitcase wall shelves are simple but yet hold some of the things he wanted to display! I’m happy to fill the blank wall…he’s happy to display some of his ‘treasures’!! Win-win!! Lol!!
Hey everyone!! Hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend!!! We were out of town for the holiday, but before we left, I was able to spend a little time building this adorable, small diy bench!! Woot woot!! I plan on using it in my bathroom…not the front yard…but I needed to take some pictures of it, and well, my bathroom was not exactly photo ready!! Lol!!! It is in need of a deep clean and makeover…which I am working on!! Haha!!
Isn’t it precious?! I am not sure exactly why, but I cannot walk by this little guy without thinking it is so cute!! Lol!! I think it’s because it is small and chunky and reminds me of my boys when they were babies!! Hahaha!!!
Hey there everyone!! Happy Wednesday!! With summer in full swing and our little ones running amuck, I thought today would be a great day to share with you a simple way to protect that beautiful furniture you build (or buy)!!
When it comes to decorating the furniture I build… my boys do not believe in anything being ‘decorative’…everything is up for grabs as a ‘toy’… and a lot of the baskets and boxes I use to decorate with are storage for their toys… so of course they are going to be taking them on and off the shelf…which leads to unsightly scratches!! Now, this is not a fix-all, we still have the occasional hammering or dropping something on the table that gives us lovely dents, but I don’t mind a little wear and tear…heck, I love furniture that is supposed to be distressed!! I just don’t like the ugly scratches that are obviously not supposed to be there!! Haha!!
Hey there!! Happy Monday!! After having spent a lot of time indoors recently since having had some major rain and storms, I was able to tackle some of my more crafty projects I have been needing to get done!! So I may be a little late on getting a new spring wreath on my door…but at least I managed to get it up before it is officially summer!! Lol!! I happen to LOVE hydrangeas, chalkboards, and burlap…so naturally, I needed to make a spring wreath that included all of my favorite things!!!
Try not to stare at how dirty it is around my door!! Haha… Looks like that will be how I will be spending the next few hours…cleaning around my door!! Lol!!
Hey, there everyone!! Sorry I have been MIA for a short period…I have been busy painting, planking, and building!! Lol!! Now I’m here to share a little review of all that painting I was doing!! I was asked by Cutting Edge Stencils to use their stencil and then share with you all how I felt about it!! After spending two days just trying to choose a stencil to review because they have SO MANY amazing stencils…I went with the Bricks All-Over stencil! I have always wanted a brick wall in my home…being a renter, this was the simplest way to get one!! Lol!! Here is how my DIY stenciled brick wall turned out!!
I could not be happier with the way it turned out…I want bricks EVERYWHERE!! Hahaha!! I chose this hallway wall, and after taking my first few pictures of the stencil hanging on the wall, I realized how hard it is to photograph this narrow space…silly me…so please excuse the long side pictures!
