Initially I wanted to add shiplap to our bedroom but then I decided to go with something a little easier and less time consuming since the wall is so big, so I decided on a board and batten wall!It's an inexpensive and easy way to add an accent wall anywhere!Here is what our room looked like at first. The walls were an ugly beige color so I decided to also tackle painting them while adding the board and batten wall!
This project was done in collaboration with Zibra Paint Brushes. I love buffalo checks! They give such a homey feel to any space. I have been wanting to add a buffalo check wall to my dining room, but the rolls of removable wallpaper are quite expensive! Plus, we have lived in too many houses that were done in the 90’s. The word wallpaper makes my husband revolt! So, I decided that painting them would be a good option. This post also includes a video! Be sure to check it out, so you can see a time lapse of the whole project!
Is spring cleaning and organization still happening? I was super happy to get this cabinet organized. I started realizing that with cabinets, items get tossed to the back and are never seen..which means never used and it's hard to know what you really have. The solution was to create pull-out drawers so every item in the cabinet was accounted for.To see how these hold up, or for other DIY ideas, make sure to check out my Instagram.
It's no secret bold metallic walls are back in style. You see it in luxury hotels, high-end offices and now in residential homes.Metallic wallpaper seems to be the biggest trend for contemporary and modern homes in 2019.But, did you know that you can get the same cosmopolitan look for a quarter of the price of wallpaper?
Debbie Hayes blogs about using Metallic Plaster to give her bedroom a warmer and inviting environment. In this step-by-step blog post, Debbie gives you the scoop on how to achieve this look yourself. Be sure to check out the full article, but below you'll find an overview on how it's done.
We've been working hard on the girls' new rooms. One thing I've learned through this process is that my wants and their wants don't always match! My oldest daughter and I were chatting about what she wanted, and when she said "shiny," I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I got her approval and we ran with it.
I haven’t seen this on Hometalk (forgive me if I missed it), so I thought I would share my recent glitter wall project! Yes, glitter walls are a thing! If you’re like me, you’re gaga for sparklies, so when I saw that Rust-Oleum had glitter wall paint, I had to have some.
Have a boring, plain wall in your home? Make it a beautiful accent wall in no time! This project uses minimal effort with maximum effect!
Our front living room had this weird bumped out wall that just never felt complete. After a little bit of negotiating, I talked Kyle into putting built -ins in the indented sides and creating a fun accent wall in the middle. I don’t have full video on the built-ins because that was part of the deal… if you don’t make me film it all, I’ll do the built-ins 🙂
This was such great transformation, and we aren't done yet! Don't forget to follow me to see the next DIY we do on this fireplace. We will be putting together a wood mantel that can just slip over the existing one!In the mean time, I hope you get a better understanding on how you can recreate this for yourself. The supply list is long, but I promise it is a easier DIY then you think.
The other day my mom gave me some Pothos stems that she had recently propagated. If you don’t know what propagating is, it’s when you grow new plants from an already established plant. This is done by cutting of one of the stems and placing it in a jar of water until it grows roots. Once the roots have sprouted you can then plant it and grow a whole new plant.This is such a cost effective way to fill your home with beautiful live plants, and is also a lovely way to share new plants with family and friends. Below I explain the steps that I used to plant and propagate my new Pothos stems.
In the furniture refinishing world, there's nothing better than finding a great piece of furniture on the side of the road 🎉While taking my pup for a walk, a few doors down from me had this beautiful MCM (mid century modern) desk that was in great shape just sitting on the curb waiting for the garbage truck to pick it up 🤦♀️ Obviously, I couldn't let this beauty disappear forever, so I ran back to my house and dropped off my pup, grabbed my van, and went back to pick up the perfect gem!Read on to see how I transformed a plain desk into a modern beauty.............*Whenever picking up a used piece of furnure, you want to inspect it really well for any sign of bugs, but this rule is especially true for those "curbside" pieces. You can even wrap a large black bag (or 2, 3, 4, how many it takes to tightly cover it) around the piece and spray insecticide in it, preferably one for bedbugs. Tightly cover the piece and tie it closed. Allow it to sit in the sun for 48 hours, dispose of the bag(s) and continue on as usual.*Price is based on the amount of product used, not the initial cost of the products*Time is based on work time only, does not include dry time

Have you heard Dixie Belle Paint carries a transfer line now? The one that caught my eye first is called Latin floral and I found the perfect project to try it on; a wooden toy box. The bold colors and great design are perfect to add personality to the box.
My brother-in-law planted a small grape plant in his backyard and wanted a trellis structure behind it for the grapes to climb on. He asked me to design and build it in the corner of his garden. After going through some designs, we decided to go with a corner arbor. When the project was complete, I created PDF plans on how to build a DIY Corner Arbor with a Bench that includes a trellis for the grapes to grow on.For more info and printable PDF visit my website at TheDIYPlan.com
Whenever we would sit on our finished patio, all we could see was the eye-sore of our under deck. We didn’t like the look of traditional lattice but decided we needed to do something. We came across the idea to use wood slats and fell in love! This was an easy project that made a big impact on our outdoor space.
I hope you’re as excited for the summer as I am! The season has started where we live so I’m sharing my new DIY citronella candles made with coconut shells – to ward off any mosquitos trying to put a damper on your summer nights!I always keep citronella candles on hand to keep the mosquitos away because they seem particularly attracted to my freckles… In the spirit of upcycling, I tried making my own by recycling some containers I salvaged, which turned out to be coconut shells!Find the detailed step-by-step here!
This is my second swinging bed in this location. My first swinging bed/floating bed I made years ago with used, leftover deck lumber. You can see it . It was everyones favorite place to nap and the most popular place to be at family gatherings. On Thanksgiving the swinging bed had a full book. I had to take it down when our roof was replaced, so it got trashed. Then it was replaced by a used ping pong table.
Each spring I do a big landscaping update to the mulched bed sections of our front yard. I always have to wait until Mother’s Day for the maple helicopters to stop falling (we get a ton) before I can get started raking them up.This year I started the big project on Mother’s Day and ended up spending seven hours on the first day. Sometimes I like doing manual labor, ha!This is the before we were working with. One year old washed out mulch, overgrown lily patches, all the helicopters, and some random weeds.
Hi friends! Thanks for popping in today, I hope you like how I’ve refinished my Dad’s vintage chair? I’ll explain how I got this blond look but first a bit of why this chair is so precious to me.
