Best Way To Create Affordable + Original Art Using My Favorite Etsy Shops

Hi there friends! Happy summer! I have been slowing making updates to my family room over the last month in preparation for the arrival of my new sectional. It actually came yesterday, eek! Oh my gosh, it’s GORGEOUS!!! I still have a few more things to do, so bare with me. Some of the updates include art, pillows, a refresh on a piece of furniture, some new accessories and more. In searching for new art for above my fireplace I found a clever way to create affordable and original art without the high dollar price tag using my favorite Etsy shops.

Summer Colors Tour-Simple Ways To Style Your Home For The Season

Hi there friends! With summer around the corner I thought I would share some easy decorating tips and ideas to get your home ready for the season. This year I joined in on the fun with the Summer Colors Tour hosted by my friend Jennifer. This is a great time of year to create a casual retreat, a place to put your feet up, smell the flowers and take pleasure in being home again. So I crafted spaces within my home that are conducive for enjoying the simple things in life.

Ivar IKEA Hack-Library Cabinet

Hi friends, happy Friday!!! My search for a mid-size cabinet for the corner of my family room has come to a end. When I realized I wasn’t finding what I was looking for, although it was really pretty simple, I began to think of affordable wood options. An IKEA hack came to mind!! By putting 2 Ivar cabinets together vertically I could create a simple, yet chic library cabinet for the corner of my family room. Win, win!!!

BHG Makeover: DIY Custom Built-In Wall Unit

Hi there friends! You have been asking for a while and today I am sharing the details on how we (Robert + I) designed and built a DIY custom wall unit for the BHG makeover. If you aren’t familiar, I teamed up with Rebuilding Together to give a deserving homeowner (Karen) a FULL room makeover with a feature in the Oct 2017 issue of BHG. This built-in was a true labor of love for my PIC (partner in crime). I remember showing up to his house over a year ago on a cold, fall day with this sketch up of the custom built-in I had in mind. It was a shameful rendering but he got it, right away. I knew then that we would make a great team (and we did). Not one time did Robert say no, I don’t thing so or can’t be done. And let me tell you, we hit a lot of snags and set backs. You can tell by the in progress shots below how we poured our heart and soul into this project. The biggest thank you to Lowe’s!!! For which without their contribution to this project, it would have never happened!

Design Happenings: New Sectional, IKEA Hack + Easy Gallery Wall

Hi there friends! With 2 weeks straight of sickness I am finally catching up on some design projects at home. I thought it might be fun to share the “in progress” decisions, since some might not make the cut to an actual blog post. Some of the “design happenings” around here include deciding on a new sectional, an IKEA hack in the works and a quick gallery wall inspired by photo booth images.
