Easy Ikea Lack Sofa Table Hack

This is such an easy project and the end result is a very high-end look on a very tiny budget. I fell in love with a $900 bookcase that I couldn't afford. It had gorgeous pieces of reclaimed wood that formed the shelves. But, I figured out a way to easily replicate the look on my Ikea lack table and couldn't be happier!

DIY Sliding Fireplace Screen

I fell in love with a professionally welded sliding fireplace screen that I ran across on Since my husband and I don't weld and couldn't afford to hire someone to make it for us, we figured out how to DIY it in a way that wouldn't require welding. As far as I can tell, this is a totally original DIY idea that I am super, super proud of :) I will warn you that there are a lot of steps to complete this project, but don't be scared off. You can totally do this!

DIY Pipe Bookshelves AND Desks

We were SHORT on storage in our girls’ playroom. While we are very, very fortunate to have a dedicated playroom, we found ourselves needing more storage for puzzles, games, legos, books, etc. And we wanted it to be STYLISH storage that would grow with our girls and still be utilized once they no longer need a playroom. We decided to build some super stylish industrial, DIY pipe shelves with built-in desks. We are IN LOVE with how they turned out and they provide TONS of much-needed​ storage

DIY Map Art From Old Pallets

Custom framed art can be VERY expensive and is definitely out of our budget. Our family room has giant wall without any windows that needed art so we needed to create some without spending a ton of money. We created these stunning framed maps using old pallets and hung them from a pipe for a super cool industrial look. We chose to make them in a way that will allow us to change out the prints for Christmas or other seasons if we choose to :)
