Hey y'all...we hope that you had a wonderful, long weekend. We are so glad that we had the opportunity to relax at the lake. We ate good food, shared a few special bevs, went on some wild boat rides and most importantly shared a great weekend together.
Jennifer and I even had a little bit of time to create a couple of fall projects. As you know, this is our favorite season. Can we sing out a giant "Woop Woop" as today is the day Starbucks brings back the Pumpkin Spice Latte? Yes, we are those people!
Now, back to business...Being that we were together it was so fun to plan out our crafts, decor and recipes for Fall. Hold onto your hats because we have a lot of fun things in store for y'all!...
In the news lately there have been reports of people putting cameras on the outside of peepholes to see into your house/apartment/hotel room. I (Steph) started thinking about the peephole in my front door and possible ways of covering it when not in use.
After much thought, I came up with a DIY solution that is cute, functional, removable, and adds a little more security to my home. Mom helped bring the idea into reality and had most of the materials we used in her craft stash! Visit our blog to watch a video of it come together.
We’ve been talking about building a pallet tiki bar for a LONG time. We had this perfect empty spot in our back yard under a palm tree that was just screaming for a bar! My husband dubbed it the TreeKee bar instead of the Tiki Bar since we planned to use the tree as part of the actual bar. Confused? Don’t be. Keep reading to find out how we did it.Step 1 – Measure and map out the area…We played around with a layout and decided we were going to use 2 pallets in the front to make the actual bar area. Each pallet is 4 ft wide which would make it 8 ft across. We felt this would comfortably seat 4 bar stools. We knew we'd need at least 6 posts to hold up the pallets and the roof. As for the roof we planned to put one on, but the tree branches would remain on the roof as part of the ‘tiki look’.
Halloween is coming and we are having a Party this year and we need a few decorations. So I decided to start by making a giant spiders web to hang on the outside of our house.This project started with 15 plastic grocery bags and a regular household iron.
My front door.....well, yea...it was not pretty. In fact, if I'm completely honest with you, I was totally embarrassed by what a person would see when they drove by my house or walked up to my front door. Aside from installing a motion sensor light and putting up a welcome sign that displayed my favorite kind of shoes, I hadn't done a thing. But this fall I was determined to change that. In fact I found by making these few changes my whole mood changed when I walked up to my front door. Here are 5 affordable ways I used my fall inspiration to create a more inviting front entryway.
I'm pretty sure this is the easiest craft that I've ever done! If you want to make one too, the hardest part will be finding the vintage jello mold! But keep reading because I can help you out with finding one down below. I'm already keeping my eyes open for more!
We just had to replace our glass screen door with a new sheet of plexi. Our landscaper accidentally hit it with a rock, while using the weedeater & it shattered the entire thing. Luckily my husband opened the door after it shattered, but the crash & aftermath has been quite the mess. We're still finding glass in the tracks & it's in our flower beds. But the landscaper wouldn't replace the whole door- just the glass. He was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Harvey & is just now moving back into his home. I unfortunately had to touch up the door paint, where shards of glass chipped into it.
At the side of my front door there is a wooden panel that has three framed out sections. I have always thought they looked like picture frames but they didn't have anything in them. Early in the summer I decided to fill those panels with something pretty and decorative.
Sometimes it just happens, despite my best intentions, a paint brush dries to a crisp. There are ways to clean a brush, and some tricks to get out dried paint - but there are times it's just no use. If you paint a lot you may have a whole collection of these brushes (is it just me??!). So one day I decided to make something with these brushes - why not turn them into something beautiful.That's how the paint brush wreath was born.
I saw someone else post a similar burlap wreath. I was shopping at Walmart and thought, I can do this... I must admit you can buy premade ones for almost the same price, but who wants that?!?All supplies were bought at Walmart. And took about an hour to put it all together.
This particular plug-in pendant light came about when we were visiting my parents. My mom had this planter from the yard in her back porch. She wasn’t sure what she was going to do with it, but I immediately saw it as a plug-in pendant light.
