dipped herb pots with free teacher appreciation tags

dipped planter pots (and free teacher appreciation printable plant tags!)

Even though teacher appreciation week was last week (and, seriously, teachers deserve all of the appreciation in the whole world- have you read this? I couldn’t say it better myself!), the end of the school year still looms ahead. So I thought I’d share a twoforone today- these darling dipped herb pots PLUS the free “Thank […]

DIY glittered clothespins

DIY_glittered_clothespins

One of my favorite projects in my sewing room is the glittered clothespins (strung on a line, currently holding up my favorite ever calendar). They are EASY to make- just paint the clothespins gold, sprinkle with glitter, let dry and top with clear glossy spray paint- and they look fantastic! Also, they just seem to […]

how to make a covered bulletin board

how to make a covered bulletin board

I’ve been finishing up my office these last few weeks and was so excited to add inspiration boards. Even better, since I used fabric and bulletin boards that I had on hand, I made these for free! First I wrapped the boards in fabric, securing each side in place with push pins on the back […]

how to make glitter covered art hangers

how to make glitter covered hangers

So the amount of excitement I feel for these glitter covered hangers is a little ridiculous. They are literally the perfect art hangers for a studio/craft room/sewing room (we use these terms interchangeably around here- haha). I can’t help my ridiculous love, though! Every time I see them, in all of their glitter-y, art-hanging glory, […]

how to make pom pom topped branches

how to make pom pom topped branches

So yesterday I mentioned that I now have a fireplace mantel (YAY!), but am totally out of mantel-decorating practice. For now, our mantel has a row of vases with fluffy pom pom topped branches- it’s really simple, but I love the texture of the pom poms, especially in contrast with the exposed brick behind them. […]

how to build a fireplace mantel

building a DIY fireplace mantel

When I shared the thankful garland, I mentioned that after an extended hiatus from remodeling projects, we are back in the saddle. In fact, Adam is tiling the backsplash while we’re gone this month (lucky me!). And we just picked up tile for a black and white bathroom redo. But before I get ahead of […]

IKEA hack stool- how to make a fur topped stool with a $6 IKEA stool

If you follow us on instagram, you’ve certainly seen snippets of my office makeover. I was hoping to have the whole thing finished up this week since the kids and I heading to the middle east for a whole month (!?!) to see Jord and her crew. But I am just not sure it’s going […]

t-h-a-n-k-f-u-l garland (with free printable file)

thankful garland

I don’t think I’ve given a State of Our House update lately- mostly because we took a little project hiatus after the long string of remodeling last winter. But we’re back at it lately- building a mantel around our gas fireplace was one of our most recent projects. And I have to tell y’all, I […]

DIY metallic alphabet magnets

DIY metallic fridge magnets

Awhile back, I saw some fabulous gold fridge-magnet-esque letters on Pinterest (turns out, they are jewelry, but still). That same afternoon, I ordered a package of alphabet magnets. After making them copper with metallic spray paint, I am absolutely smitten. In fact, I smile each time I walk past my fridge and see them in […]

color palette keeper

IMG_1326

So I am totally getting ahead of myself by choosing color palettes for rooms in the new house that are (ahem) not quite ready for decor. And by ‘not quite ready,’ I mean, most of them don’t have flooring. Some don’t even have drywall. None have a single item of decor (there is a Serena […]
