Am I the only one that’s noticed a big shift in popularity of anything wood on a wall? I’m guessing we can thank Joanna Gaines for that! I have to agree though, that adding any sort of wood to a wall adds warmth and architectural detail. I’ll also admit that I’m a huge fan of planked walls (shiplap, board and batten, you name it, I love it). That’s why I’ve decided to plank a few areas in my dining room and show you how I added wood planks to our dining room column and side walls.Over the past year I have become very familiar with adding different types of wood to my walls. I’ve created a faux shiplap wall with no power tools, an easy DIY board and batten with minimal materials, and now I’ve decided it’s time to use real wood to plank our column and side walls.The wood planks I’m using are from Weaber Lumber. Weaber has a great instructional video on how to install the boards HERE. You can see the boards I received HERE.
This is where it started- an old mill in foreclosure that a man bought at auction and was giving away everything in the warehouse.
We got about 900 square feet of 1/4" heart pine lumber for FREE!!!!!! It was dark, hot and dusty but it was FREEEEEE!
As you can see, the boards were not in a finished state. But surprisingly we had very little waste!
I LOVE WALL ART and I LOVE BABY NURSERIES.So when I debuted Collin’s nursery design, I knew a follow-up “how to blog” was coming for the feature woodland art I created for above his dresser. I really do believe it is the piece that ties the entire space together!
Feed the birds and decorate a tree with suet ornaments! These cookie cutter ornaments are a creative and fun way to serve up nutritious treats to your backyard birds and help sustain them through the cold, winter months.
Have a small wall space (this wall space is 22" wide) and want to bring a cute accent on a budget. This is what I used.
A wall gallery of budget frames. Three were $1 from Goodwill, two I had.

After some work in my living room I had to relocate a gallery wall I had worked so hard to get right. I was moving it to a smaller space so that required paring down the items I used. You can see the original arrangement in a previous post. Using what I learned on that one made the process easier. With a piece of white chalk, ruler, and level I marked the outside edges of the space I wanted to fill. The center of your arrangement should be at eye level.
decided to paint stripes in my hallway. Because the ones in my guest bathroom just wasn’t enough. I already had a gallery wall and loved it. But I love what new paint can do to a room. Are you with me on this ladies? :) So I though lets paint stripes on the gallery wall.
This past weekend we decided to change our master bedroom from a stark white bedroom with no personality, to a room that now feels cozy and warm simply by adding wall boards by Weaber Lumber to our wall. Check out the blog for before and after pics!
Guys I have wanted to make a kitchen island of my very own for a long time. So when we were buying this house, it had the perfect space for the island I'd dreamt about forever. I bought a $25 dresser that I wanted to use because of the perfect amount of storage for baking sheets & all other baking utensils. It had ample drawer space! Then I turned it into a beautiful work space for my kitchen!
How I built cornhole boards and stained them with unicorn spit. I’ve been meaning to build some yard games for family gatherings, parties and birthdays held at my place. My best friend’s husband was turning 40 in November and we threw him a surprise birthday party in October. Why a month before his birthday? Because this is Minnesota and we didn’t want to be outside standing in a foot of snow and freezing to death lol And I don’t have a house big enough to really accommodate 100 people!
I really have a thing for old vanities, especially with big round mirrors. They can be expensive so I am always on the lookout for fixer uppers. I came across this little gem at a garage sale for $10! I could not contain my excitement and purchased without really looking it over (it was $10!)! I got it home and was really happy that the drawers were in excellent condition but found out that the mirror was broke on the right side, but everything else was pretty solid. No rebuilding needed. I just needed to figure out how to make the mirror work.
