How To Make Junk Cool: Upcycled Coat Rack

With all the projects I have been making for the shop, Holly and I thought it would be fun to host a couple series in 2017. One being “How to Make Junk Cool” and the other “Before and Afters”. With dresser makeovers and chair upholstering, a tutorial seems redundant and unnecessary, but it’s still fun […]

DIY Farmhouse Inspired Tablescape {for the holidays}

If you’ve been following me, then you know I like to do as much DIY as I can…and as inexpensive as possible. I have the perfect tablescape for you! ********** It all started with a trip to the fabric store and dollar store… A roll of burlap ribbon, placemats, and doilies [I can’t believe I […]

DIY Painted Outdoor Rug

I searched high and low for a rug that I liked. I didn’t even see one outside of my price range that called my name. So, I took matters into my own hands and decided I’d create something I would like…and for a fraction of the cost. I purchased a plain dark grey outdoor rug […]

DIY Pallet Sign

At my house, you’ll see a trend…we like to incorporate the word “hope” into our decor. Like many projects, I started this project with no specific details in mind; except that I knew I wanted a pallet sign. I had a pallet that I took apart and decided to just start and see what would […]

Birdhouse Makeover With My Son

My 3 year old son just decided that GREEN is his favorite color. I think it’s the cutest thing, since this is a FIRST…he’s never had a “favorite color” before. He points out everything that is green and says “I like that color, green is my favorite color”. ******************************* When we purchased our home I […]

My Dream Coffee Bar…Comes True!

I purchased a late 1960’s home just over a year ago. Here is the BEFORE picture (on a good day). The original built-in cupboards and shelving unit gave away the age of the house, it was hideous (in my opinion), and kind of and awkward orange-ish wood color. The space was not easy for me […]

Holly’s Dining Room Makeover: Making Your Accessories Work

I’ve been working on my dining room and I found several fun decorations for a featured wall; however, I just needed a couple more items and didn’t want to spend the money for them. I ended up spotting an old colander that was starting to rust and the paint was chipping off. So, I really […]

Add A Custom Saying To Your Project…It’s EASY!

I love the idea of customizing a space with a saying. ***** Since I didn’t have a fancy machine to cut vinyl letters for me, my handwriting isn’t very nice, and I just wasn’t able to buy the saying I wanted pre-made… I had to come up with a way to nicely trace words on […]

Re-Purposing A Dining Room Built-in Hutch…Into Playroom Toy Shelves

Do your toys multiply overnight (like mine do)? I seem to always lack storage and organization in the playroom. I’ve been renovating most of my house and I (well, my husband) recently removed a really big built-in unit from my dining room. I gave away a couple pieces (the shelves on the far right and […]
