DIY Grain Sack Pillows
I was SO excited when I came across these authentic grain sacks today. I have a serious love for anything grain sack. It was two half’s (or would it be halves? Sigh. I’m a decorator not an English Teacher) of grain sacks – making them PERFECT for pillows. I have a few other grain sack pillows that I ...

Phase 1 of Kitchen Renovation

Last night it began. My husband jokingly said he would rip out the peninsula while I was making dinner. I whipped around and said “Don’t toy with my emotions like that, Matt.” He reluctantly agreed (after stringing me along for an hour) to begin our renovation after dinner. Oh. The excitement. The peninsula actually came ...

BIG Kitchen Plans

20. January 2015 Design, DIY 4
I. Am. So. Excited. The other night my husband and I were standing in the kitchen and were discussing a few SIMPLE changes we’d like to make to the kitchen. We currently have a peninsula and we’ve been meaning to paint the exterior of it white to freshen it up a bit. Somehow a short ...

SIMPLE Bathroom Updates

19. January 2015 Design, DIY 1
We got a liiiiiiiiiiitle spray paint happy this weekend. Two years ago I bought this HORRIFIC light for my bathroom. Horrific. I have no idea what I was thinking or what I was smoking at the time, to think that it would actually look right in our bathroom……but it doesn’t. It looks awful. And for ...

I may or may not be taking these Dollar Store frames a little far. But. I. Can’t. Stop.  (I posted the Dollar Store Art I did last week, if you missed it go check it out!) This project seriously couldn’t be any simpler. All you need is: Some dollar store frames. Any size. Spray paint ...

Reclaimed Wood Bench

So, ya remember that really cool shutter bench that I my husband made? The one that I loved so much? Well. I sold it. In my last-minute desperate preparations for The Hob Nob Market back in November, I needed a bench to go with the farm table I was taking. Since I was in such a time crunch, we had absolutely ...

Quick & Simple Art Display for $3

07. January 2015 DIY 3
If your kids are like mine, they LOVE art. They color and create pictures for me every chance they get. I totally love it, but the piles of pictures and master pieces clutter my counters. I so want to be able to display them more. I had an empty wall in the toy room that would be room ...

Dollar Store Art!

07. January 2015 DIY 2
My favorite ideas always come to me in my sleep. For whatever weird unexplainable reason, I am most creative while I’m dead to the world in my deepest state of REM. I wonder what this says about me? It  probably means that I’m some sort of genius. Since I was already planning a trip to ...

DIY Farmhouse Pitcher

11. November 2014 DIY 0
I have an obsession with farmhouse pitchers. Plain and simple. It’s a full-blown ‘wow she needs an intervention for her farmhouse pitcher obsession’ kind of obsession. The only problem? They can be hard to find. Annnnnnd when you DO find them, they can be pricey. And I don’t do pricey. Every once in a while ...

DIY Personalized Coasters

30. October 2014 DIY 5
I went on one of my crazy “my house is being over taken by an insurmountable amount of crap” rampages yesterday. Does that ever happen to you? You’re walking through your house…it starts out small. You notice a few things that are cluttering up your house. Then those few things become 35,183 things and suddenly ...
