My best friend wanted a baseball themed nursery and loved the idea of a baseball bat growth chart. I told her that I would make it for her. Turns out, it was pretty simple. I'll show you how with this step-by-step tutorial.
For the price tag, this is one of my favorite projects. It took about an hour and it was so cheap. The results are just amazing and I love the fact that I can change the look of the headboard later down the line. If I want to go with a different color then I can reupholster using a different fabric. If I want to add some bling, then I could always use nail heads or button tufts. The possibilities are endless. More details with the cost breakdown can be found on our blog. Here's how we did it:
I’m on a roll with plywood. It’s my wood of choice at the moment. That may be because we finally own a jigsaw and I’m getting comfortable using it. I’ve been brainstorming ideas to make our front and back outside areas more homey. I came up with DIY House Numbers. We didn’t have any house numbers, so I wasn’t replacing any. We managed to make these for free which is HUGE with house renovations. So, if you want a fun little tutorial, follow along.
We had an old faded umbrella that looked bad, but was structurally strong. We didn't want to throw it out, but knew that it definitely needed an update. With paint and time, we transformed it into a beautiful statement piece for our patio. See more pictures and details on my blog.
I teamed up with a great group of blogger's last month to share what our homes look like day-to-day. Most blog readers, social media users, etc., don't want to see someone else's clutter when they are looking at a home decor picture. So, that clutter, the toys, the DIY mess.. it all gets picked up before the photos get taken. Sometimes though, that sends a negative message to all. It makes it seem like all houses are always cleaned up which is totally not true. So today, here's a real glimpse of what my house looks like day-to-day.
We have a great backyard but have never really put a ton of effort into our patio. Most of the furniture and pieces out there had been thrifted or found at garage sale and had been overly used. This year, we decided to put a bit of time and effort into our patio space to see if we could get a space that we really loved.
I'm always curious to see the cost and behind the scenes on upgrades in houses. Because of this, I thought I'd share why we had a ductless mini split installed, how it was installed and what the all in cost was.
I've had two fiddle leaf figs for over a year and they are going strong! I thought I'd share what has been working for me since so many people have problems keeping Fiddle Leaf Figs alive. Fiddle leaf fig trees aren’t the easiest plants to care for if it’s your first rodeo but they are definitely not as hard as some make it seem. I actually did a great round-up of EASY Houseplants if you’d like to start with a few that are hard to kill! But, trust me... you can learn to keep a fiddle leaf fig alive too.
