Ever since I came across Katie's post on How to Easily Get the Farmhouse Look with Dollar Tree Items I've been inspired to look at Dollar Tree items in a whole new way. Take this one I made for only six dollars here. My last trip to the Dollar Tree was to check out the garden section and to see about getting some baskets. No thoughts of Easter was planned.
Welcome to March Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen!
Just another Saturday where Miss Kelli decides the office desk needs a little somethin'-somethin'. Usually this happens when Hubby decides he's going to cast a few lines or cut a load of firewood...could be anything that takes him out of the house.
This is the third and final episode of our his/her closet challenge. Sharing a basic builder grade closet is tough...if you're a guy who is like my guy, that is. His "side" is quite frankly less than a 1/4 of the space. What can I say? I am a closet hog and it was definitely time to trim the fat.
Have you ever just jumped into a project only to realize it's a bad idea? This cheap DIY closet storage system began like that. Thank goodness, though, failure is all about about the process of success. This easy closet system only cost $86.48 and took about 1/2 a day to accomplish. I am so excited to share this with you.
Do you share closet space with a partner? Want to double your storage space? Our closet is long and I'm constantly looking for ways to store our clothes in clever ways. This challenge begins with figuring out how to down size and then designing an affordable closet system that works for two people.
This Saturday with Kelli was all about spring cleaning and adding some simple and cheap spring decor. I made this airy grass industrial pot for only $6.00. One of the easiest and quickest Dollar Tree hacks so far.
Valentine's Day is fast approaching and, as usual, I feel unprepared. Full disclosure, I am really not a red -n- pink heart, candy kinda gal. Don't get me wrong. I like flowers and chocolate (especially the dark kind), but the idea of Valentine outfit(s), perfume, a Hallmark card, expensive dinner, staged romance...STRESSES me out!
Hello there! I'm so excited to launch Saturday's with Kelli where I share my shenanigans. Today is all about how to rethink your work space and create a beautiful and functional writing center.
If you have a small living room, making your own ottoman from a milk crate may be the perfect solution to your problem. All you need to make your ottoman is a milk crate, 2 yards of fabric, needle and thread.
For years this queen has gone without a crown. She dominated her realm nevertheless. Finally the day came where she was given a crown only a country gal would love. With the door, some leftover Allure flooring, from our master bath makeover, and extra trim boards, I was pretty determined I could make a headboard.
It’s week 3 and the guest bedroom has drastically changed with new paint, wall trim and a DIY queen sized headboard. With only a hundred bucks to create a welcoming dream room for guests, my first expense was buying supplies for the wall trim.
This is my first $100 Room Challenge and after weekend one, I’m both excited and pooped. I've decided to jump right in and transform the guest bedroom in one month! This is all about The guest bedroom closet and how I transformed it without spending any of my budget! Phew.
Oh my! I can’t believe I am doing this. For two years my feet have been dangling in the pool of blogging. Post here. Post there. Rarely a post everywhere. My social media footprint was me just moving my toes back and forth. Never going any deeper than I was comfortable.
Then it happened.
I don't know about you, but I fail at seeing my New Year's resolutions come true. I make 'em and break 'em, then feel guilty. 2018 is going to be different. Instead of resolutions, I am setting goals...5 home improvement goals to be exact.
I cannot express how happy this room makes me feel. Before it was dark and cluttered. Now--happy dance--it's bright, soothing, and de-cluttered. Honestly, though, this would have turned out much differently if Hubby hadn't pitched in.
I'm not sure when I began to actually verbalize my master bedroom dream to Hubby. He's the kind of guy who is pretty darn content with the way things are. Each time I'd bring up an idea, he would poo-poo it. Tell me the room was fine...etc., etc. But you know, happy wife, happy life and all that. Poor guy.
So when I told him I wanted to buy four sheets of underlayment plywood for a plank wall, he raised his eyebrows, gave me the look... sighed, and said, "Okay".
n this five part master bedroom makeover, the challenge was to turn a cluttered dark bedroom into a welcoming peaceful retreat. I dreamed about a master suite that was light, spacious, and inviting. A space to relax. A place that was simple so that all thoughts and ideas could just sigh in relief.
