DIY Upcycled Frame

DIY Upcycled Frame

As I type this, I am watching Fixer Upper re-runs and the episode where Joanna created a wall sign with the saying "today is a good day for a good day" is on! It's meant to be that I have this sign in my home and post it for you all. I've had this frame in my [...]

DIY Menu Chalkboard

DIY Menu Chalkboard

I finally bought a fiddle leaf fig tree!!!! I have been wanting one of these for SO long but have been nervous to pull the trigger because they are spendy and I have what you would call a black thumb as opposed to a green thumb. Now, I didn't re-pot the plant because as I [...]

Wooden Spool Clock

Wooden Spool Clock

Medical websites are my nemesis. About a month ago, I went to the doctor for a spot that appeared on my leg. At my appointment, 3 different doctors looked at my leg, none of them had ever seen anything like it and had no idea what it was. They did some blood work, sent me to [...]

Upcycled Queen Bed

Upcycled Queen Bed

So it's been almost a month and a half since my last blog post and I have felt like a part of my heart was missing! It has been an absolutely crazy past 6 weeks with work. And when I say work, I'm not talking about fun blog stuff in the works. I mean, my [...]

Industrial Pipe Desk

Industrial Pipe Desk

I had so much fun with this project! It was a true DIY, taking some inspiration from Pinterest and creating my own building plans. Most of the pipe desks I've seen are simple straight lines. I wanted a tiny bit more interest so I incorporated the crisscross design in the base of the desk. When [...]

I have finally decided to, once and for all, admit something to myself...I am NOT capable of keeping plants alive. (Insert sad face emoji here). Since the holidays, taking down Christmas décor and trying to freshen up the house, I have had 4 different potted plants on my dining room table. I think the longest any [...]

It's official...I'm fully addicted to Fixer Upper. I can't stop watching, and I watch the same episodes over and over. I'm watching an old episode from season 1 as I type! I love the work, ideas and inspiration of Chip and Joanna. And they are so cute and funny together! If you haven't seen it, check it [...]

Antique Coffee Table

Antique Coffee Table

My mom refinishes old furniture, which is where I got this DIY bug from. She had an upcoming show and was low on pieces and asked me to shop around some Portland thrift stores to see what I could find. I called her from the Habitat for Humanity Restore to let her know I found [...]

Pillar Candle Chandelier

Pillar Candle Chandelier

We moved into this house and one of the things I loved most was the huge open area off the kitchen where I could create a dining room complete with a farm table for entertaining. The only problem, and something I didn't want to tackle, there was no overhead electrical in the room! Yes, I [...]

Farmhouse Table

Farmhouse Table

Well, that was an awfully long 2 weeks of blog neglect. The holidays and the craziness of my other job certainly got the best of my time. But, I'm coming back with a bang! My DIY farmhouse table!!!! This is BY FAR my favorite DIY and my most proud moment yet. I'm still a bit [...]

Painted Front Door

Painted Front Door

My mom painted our front door black when I was younger and I'm pretty sure I looked at her like she had four heads...and look at me now. Yep, four heads, just like my mama. When I decided to change my front door, what I really wanted was a huge, knotty pine wood front door [...]

Painted Chandelier

Painted Chandelier

This is one of the first things I did when we moved into our house and it didn't start out as a DIY project at all. Initially I hated this chandelier and was simply going to take it down and replace it with something else but my mom was visiting, and we decided, on a [...]
