Glam pumpkins for fall decor

Once it was time for Halloween/Thanksgiving decor, I had to brush up on my crafting and make my own decor. I started last year with my Thanksgiving stuff, but really wanted to add some glam pumpkins that could go from early October through end of November. With foam pumpkins and spray paint I was able to make my own glam pumpkins. This week for Wordless Wednesday I posted about my fall decor in my … [Read more...]

Celebrity Couples Reveal their Home Color Makeovers

I've always been a big believer in the idea of color for your walls. Although, my house has been compared to a box of crayons I don't mind. Each room gives a feeling simply by the virtue of the color of the walls. I'm not afraid of color, but I know I'm the minority. Until now... Celebrity couples Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott as well as Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum have teamed up with the … [Read more...]

Making A Dresser Fit For A Princess

For my daughter's 4th birthday this month we got her a play kitchen for her room. She has a tiny room and the large doll house and wide dresser made this play kitchen virtually impossible to fit. I did not worry. I budgeted for her birthday to include a new dresser and I wanted to make it for her. Make it meaning find one I could make my own, not chop down wood and build my own furniture. Since … [Read more...]

Decorating Dry Erase With Duct Tape

Several years ago on a parenting board I frequented someone came on to talk about how her husband made a wallet out of duct tape and showed a picture. It was hysterical to me, and yet I was unaware of what was to come. Now there are books and DIY projects revolving around making things with Duct Tape. When I was at BlogHer in August Duct Tape was giving out their new line of Duct Tape sheets … [Read more...]

$100 Front Yard Makeover

We moved into our house 3.5 years ago, and have been redoing what we can when we can due to financial constraints. The thing is that I like doing it little by little I get to be a huge part in every detail. It feels like a piece of art. Tweaking it here and there until it's done. With $100 I was able to liven up my front yard enough to feel like I made it pretty for the summer. The first order … [Read more...]

Organized Entryway for $300

If you could spruce up a room for $300, what would you pick if given the chance? For me it was finally making our entryway somewhere where we would have a place to put our bags and jackets when we come in the door. Since we bought our house I wanted to make a whole built in wall right when we walked into the house. I measured, drew out what I wanted, and yet never had the funds to do it. I held … [Read more...]

Spring Is For The Birds

Spring is for the birds, and I don't mean that in the sarcastic way, but literally. Spring is when the birds are chirping and flowers are blooming. There's nothing better then a brand new bird bath to help me feel like spring is here. I decided to make a bird bath out of different sized terra cotta planter pots stacked one on top of the other. Supplies: terra cotta pots and dishes paint … [Read more...]
