Edyns Bedroom French Inspired Freckled Laundry

Happy Monday, loves! In 9 hours, I'll be road tripping with the little ones to visit my sis in North Carolina for 9 days, so before I completely unplug, I wanted to share some snapshots of projects that I've been cranking out for Edyn's room.  I know. I know. It's not my bedroom.   I decided to briefly press pause in there to … [Read more...]

Hi, loves. I intended to share my Luckett's haul with you today, but sweet news came along and my little Luckett's finds will just have to wait.

I think I established in my last post that Motivational Speaker isn't in my cards ;), but I'm happy my words resonated with some of you.

(Click HERE for the way before and dabble in … [Read more...]

farm tables and a turned wood lamp score

I seem to be in the habit of posting late Wednesday nights.   After the Springtime weekend rush  with baseball practices, games, and dance lessons, etc. and then squeaking in some time for projects here and there on Mondays and Tuesdays, Wednesdays are working for me so I'm just going to go with it.

Autumn Front Door

Happy Thursday. Yesterday, I spiced up my front door with some autumnal decor made by yours truly and a vinyl house number... The monogrammed hanging was inspired by this gorgeous 6-inch faux bloom (originally with stem) that I purchased at Hobby Lobby for $2.50 last week. I {love} the deep raspberry, pinks, and golden … [Read more...]

Hope you're having a lovely week. (I don't know where it went but apparently it's now Wednesday.) I unplugged a little the past two days and didn't get a chance to shoot the ruched ruffle tutorial yet so I'll share the tutorial for the laundry bags that hang in the laundry station in my hallway. The ruched ruffle tutorial will be … [Read more...]

Repurposed Shirt Slipcover Tutorial

Hi, sweets. Hope you're having a lovely weekend! Tonight, I thought I'd share my shirt slipcover tutorial for the ruffled cover on the larger white chair in my hallway makeover that I made for less than a dollar using a white cotton shirt found at a thrift shop.
