Deciding on a coffee table style is hard, y’all. Like, I have seriously been back-and-forth about what type of coffee table I want in this space probably since we moved in about three years ago. For a while I wanted a tufted ottoman but then decided that wasn’t super practical with two kids who like to rub food and crayons on everything. Then I wanted something more modular that could double as seating when people came over but again changed my mind. Ultimately I decided that a DIY farmhouse style coffee table would be the best fit for my space. This coffee table is both beautiful and functional and I will walk you through how to make your own!
Seasonal wreaths are a great way to display some decor both inside and outside your house and also a great handmade holiday gift idea. Unfortunately, they are also pretty expensive if you buy them from the store. The good news? They are super fast and easy to make! This wreath was inspired by some pinecones my mom and I collected while camping over the summer. They were the perfect thing to make this DIY Pinecone Winter Wreath for almost no money at all. Read on to see how I did it!

When we decided to update our kitchen we set a certain budget. Not too small but we wanted our dream kitchen so were willing to hire out projects and DIY what we could. We knew we wanted to remove our upper cabinets to make the space feel more open and airy, we wanted to keep the layout but make a change to the style of the cabinets, new appliances, and new counter tops. Those were the "big budget" items. The small stuff we did ourselves and we are so happy with the end result. We ended up spending around $15,000, which included the counter tops, refacing/custom cabinet work (they even through in matching the vanity in the half bath near the kitchen to make the area uniform), and new appliances.
A total transformation took place in this kitchen. Notice the before picture. The family has lived in this home for 20 years and the room felt heavy to them. The wanted an update with more room, storage, and counter space. The brick was removed and new custom cabinets and stainless steel appliances put in it's place. Imagine creating lunches to banquets in this beautiful kitchen.
Hi friends,I'm so excited to share the process of remodeling our kitchen. We gutted the entire house and started from scratch.We tore out the entire kitchen; flooring, cabinets, back splash and island. We were planning on purchasing new cabinets & countertops. Once we realized we would have to cut the bottom cabinets to get them out of our home, we decided to paint them and continue using them.
When we started the kitchen remodel, my husband really wanted to do all new cabinets. I talked him out of it because the ones we have are functional, solid wood and really just needed refreshing (not to mention cabinets are very expensive!). So he conceded but said he really hated the hinges. The hinges?! So here was my solution to those eyesore hinges.
In our basement, we have a built in cabinet/counter area that used to be part of a kitchenette that we ripped out during our basement renovation. We decided to keep this built in, because I thought it would be perfect for a snack/beverage area to use when entertaining. The only problem is that it was painted the ugliest shades of brown and tan that you could find, the cabinet doors were old and had some wear, and the hardware was outdated. But I was going to change this!
My fireplace was just begging for a holiday makeover and who was I to say no. A ready made wreath large enough to not look dwarfed on my stone wall was either too expensive or just not my style, and that’s when I remembered my daughter's abandoned Hula Hoop and the fun began with this Holiday Hula Hoop! Here are the supplies needed:

Are you wanting to refresh your living room space for cheap?! Here's the project for you! We’ve had this broken, cheesy electric fireplace for too long and the wife and I wanted something more appealing for the holidays. We totally made it over in a few simple steps.

I love thrift store finds for a few reasons, not only do you get an item at a reduced cost from the original purchase price but you get the opportunity to be creative. You'll often find items that appeal to you in shape and size for your home yet the item might not match your decor. Such as was the case with these two odd finds, a blue tray and a pottery jug.
My friends at Burlap Fabric sent me some beautiful red ticking stripe fabric. I knew the fabric would be perfect for a Christmas DIY! But if you’ve been around for a bit, you know that sewing is something I do not do. It’s not that I don’t want to. It’s just that I never learned how so I am so intimidated by it. I hope to learn one day, but today is not that day.So, I started thinking up some ideas for fabric that didn’t require sewing and the thought of a Christmas rag wreath hit me. I remembered that I had some left over drop cloth from my DIY bedskirt, so I grabbed that to add in as well.
