A few weekends ago, I decided I was tired of looking at our sad, pitiful, little mailbox! I went to Lowes & purchased a new mailbox post which fit right over the top of our existing wooden post, making installation easy peasy!! Within 30 minutes our mailbox was completely transformed! I love the little flower box on the back! Our new mailbox is a showstopper & adds so much curb appeal to our home!
We bought our couch at Ashely Furniture almost 6 years ago. I still really like couch, but a couple months ago I couldn't help but notice it was looking a little tired. It was suffering from something I like to call "Saggy Sofa Syndrome." Not wanting to spend the money on a new couch, I decided to take matters into my own hands & bring new life to our tired little sofa. Here's what I did....
Our side yard is a space that I've been working on for the last couple of years. It seems like each spring I tackle it again & again, making more progress year after year. A few weeks ago, I decided to finally put in the work (and the money) needed, to make it the side yard of my dreams! I'm so happy with how it turned out. Details in link below!
My bushes were greening up & filling out in the front of our home, flowers were planted, but my porch? My porch was looking sad folks! The porch railing had fallen victim to the rain & snow over the past couple of years & was in desperate need of a fresh paint job. After giving the railings two coats of paint, I added a little character to the porch to make it welcoming for all of our summer guests by adding some flowers, a new wreath to the front door, & an easel chalkboard. More details in the link below!
I made this simple burlap monogram with supplies from Michaels! I used mod podge to adhere the scrapbook paper to the wooden plaque & after that, just attached everything to the pre-made burlap canvas with hot glue! Super easy and I just love how it turned out!
I had the privilege of making/providing the table decor for the Mother's Day brunch at our church this year. I was pretty much on my own with the project, so I needed something simple. At the same time, the church didn’t want to spend a lot of money on table centerpieces, so I also needed to be thrifty. Here is what I came up with.
After adding on a 2nd bathroom to our home in 2008, I was kind of at a loss for which direction I wanted to go with the decor. Sure, I hung a shower curtain & brought in some wall decor, but I was never truly happy with the space. Some time late last fall/early spring, I was tired of not loving my bathroom. I really wanted to brighten up the space! I knew I wanted a lighter colored shower curtain, and also knew that I wanted to go more light gray with the paint color. The problem was the floor. Trying to find a shower curtain that would allow me to go the direction I wanted to with the wall color, but also tie in the floor color wasn’t easy. In the beginning, I was even contemplating new tile, but not wanting to deal with the expense nor the mess, I kept looking for something that would work.
This is a post from last fall in which I shared all the decor that my mom & I did for a friend's wedding. We pretty much made everything you see in the photos and did all of the decorating for under $1500.
My shelf in the kitchen had been pretty bare since Christmas, so I decided it was time to spruce things up for spring! I bought several baskets from Goodwill that varied in shapes & sizes to create a small gallery above the shelf and added a mossy monogram. I wanted to keep the color scheme pretty neutral & just bring in smal pops of green for a fresh & pretty spring look!
