We love recycling something unexpected and making things for our fairy garden. Like this little bridge.
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.
The elements of design that every room needs are color, pattern, and texture. But with so many elements, it can be hard to include each when you are decorating. Not to worry! We’ve got you covered! Wall Stencils and a unique wall finish is all you need to decorate with color, pattern, AND texture. In this DIY décor tutorial, we show you how to do the technique of dragging, or stria, which creates fabric-like texture to an otherwise smooth wall.
We are officially LIVING in our new house and we could not be happier! The projects have only just begun, and I’m so excited to be sharing my first one in our new house. It’s no secret I’ve always been a fan of wainscoting, so I knew I wanted to do something to the walls in our new house.
We have been having some fun over at Zest Quarters, literally playing with paint. Remember those huge sheets of butcher block that you got to paint on in preschool? Well this project took me back to those good ol’ days! If you recall, our new space was riddled with multiple portraits of the former proprietor.

We started out with a dingy, dark tan half bathroom painted by the previous owners. We knew we wanted to do something unique with the space and something that would brighten it up. Today I want to show you how we turned our bathroom into a fun room with my DIY Coastal Planked Wall tutorial using Plaid Crafts' FolkArt Milk Paint.
Our new blog, The Palette, is designed to inspire your creativity with wonderful projects, tutorials and more. This week, we share a unique way to bring color into your space with our ombre wall finish. Our in-studio trainer and artist, Jane, has helped create this beautiful feature wall for our stairway alcove by blending together various colors of Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. Let's take a closer look at how she did it.
I have a firm belief that you can transform any room with some paint. It is the most cost-effective way to give a room a face-lift: whether you paint a focal wall, all walls, paint above the dado or below, create an imaginary dado with paint or add a pattern or stencil, paint has the incredible ability to completely change the look and dynamic of a space.Here is how to completely change the way a room looks with just a little paint!
I added a real thin brick accent wall to my dining room!This is a project I have wanted to attempt for years. I had read about a few home decor bloggers that installed thin brick veneer in their homes and the results always looked amazing.Thin brick veneer is just like regular brick except it’s thin. It gives you the look of brick but with the ease of installing tile. You can put it on your walls, your floors, indoors or outdoors.If you’ve never installed tile and the thought of it feels intimidating, this is the project for you. The great thing about brick is that it looks better when it’s not perfect. I’m really into that “farmhouse” style Joanna Gaines has made popular over the past couple of years and a brick wall fits in perfectly with that aesthetic. If you mess up part of this project, it’s no big deal- brick walls are meant to have character.
