How to Get the Vintage Corbel Look

Hello friends. I hope today finds you doing fabulous. I must be honest, I am struggling with this time change. Don’t get me wrong, I love the extra daylight hour. It gives me more time to work on my projects. But let’s just pick a time and go with it, right? This back and forth is too much on this girl. Oh well, I guess it is what it is and eventually I’ll get used to it (right before it changes again). Anyhoo, today I’m going to show you how you can get the look of a vintage corbel using a brand new store bought corbel (without paying hundreds of dollars). Ready? Okay, let’s do this!

Fresh Flower Market Sign DIY

Hello my favorite friends. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!! I shared with you all last week that I’ve been anxious to spruce up my outdoor space. The weather in Louisiana has been absolutely gorgeous the last several weeks and this past weekend it was terrible. I thought we were back into winter. It was cold and rainy and just plain yucky. That pretty much ruined my plans for getting anything done outside. So instead, I decided to work on some of my outdoor projects inside. That’s where the Fresh Flower Market Sign comes in.I knew that I wanted to make a sign for my potting table, so that was the perfect indoor project for a rainy weekend. I just cleared my island and laid a cloth across it and starting painting away. This Fresh Flower Market Sign has been one of my favorite DIYs yet. It came out even better than I anticipated.

Quick & Easy Coffee Bar Makeover

Do you ever get the itch to change something up? Sometimes a random thought hits me to make a change in my decor. Sometimes it’s a quick and easy change, and other times, not so much. Over the weekend, I started taking out my fall decor to start thinking about my plans for the fall (yes, I just said fall decor – eek). Well anyway, I was thinking of what I wanted to do with my coffee bar, and then all of a sudden I got that itch!My coffee bar is actually a built-in desk in my kitchen. I love that I have the space for a coffee bar, but it’s not really what I envision for a coffee bar. Well, I decided that I wanted to tear out the desk and bookshelves and replace them with a vintage dresser and floating shelves above. I told my husband what I was thinking and he told me that I must be crazy. lol.

DIY Wood Crates: Vintage Makeover

Hi there friends! Who’s getting settled back in to the school routine? I’ll be honest, last week was rough! I went back work after being off for six weeks and it wasn’t easy. All the kids are back in school so that made it a little less depressing. We are slowly transitioning back into our much despised school-time routine. For those of you that have been around for a little while and are wondering if I managed to get my youngest in his own bed before school started. Nope. It didn’t happen. And I’m not that mad about it. Mama is not quite ready to stop snuggling him yet. Anywho, his room stays nice and cute ’cause he’s rarely in it. And as promised, I’m about to show you all how I did the DIY wood crates in his room.I picked up some plain, raw wooden crates to use for storage in my son’s room. I wasn’t really feeling the vibe of the raw wood so I decided to give them a vintage-inspired makeover. Imagine that, right.

DIY Fall Decor: Pumpkin Sign

Who’s ready for fall? Y’all, this is my absolute favorite time of the year and I couldn’t be more excited!!! I’ve been working on some DIY fall decor and today I’m going to share with you the easiest project ever! No joke!When I was pulling out my fall decor, I realized that I didn’t have any fall signs. What better way to remedy that than to create a little DIY fall decor!I picked up an old chippy tongue and groove board at an antique store a while back. The chippiness stole my heart and it was only about $3! I figured it would be a good project piece, but I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it at the time.

DIY Nightstands on a Budget

I recently made over my youngest son's bedroom. I wanted to stick with the modern vintage vibe that I was going for in his room, but didn’t want to spend a fortune on vintage nightstands. So I started thinking about how I could DIY nightstands that would fit the look of his room. And this is what I came up with…

Let me just start by saying, I love to change up my decor. If you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time, you have probably noticed this small obsession that I have with changing things up. But, I don’t have a ton of money to always buy new decor so I’m always looking for budget-friendly ways that I can do this. An excellent budget-saving tip to change up your home decor is to use printables.I am a member of the Home Love Printables Club. For just $5/month (first month is FREE), you get access to so many lovely home decor prints, stationary, note cards and much more. It’s a great way to add lots of new pieces to your home without spending a lot of money. Make sure you give them a follow on Instagram to see all the great ways that others have styled their printables. I absolutely love the vintage vibes of their March printables, which is what I used for this project.

Chalk Paint Vs. Milk Paint: Which is Better?

If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you probably know my obsession for experimenting with different types of paints and painting techniques. I get so many questions about the differences between chalk paint vs milk paint so I figured I would answer a few of those today. I’ve tried many different brands of both of these types of paints, and for the most part, they are all pretty comparable. Each brand has their pros and cons and I usually go for the one that would work best for the particular project I am working on.So let’s get started discussing some of the differences between chalk paint vs milk paint, shall we?

Recently, a blogger friend made a doormat that said 'cute shoes' and I thought it was adorable! But I knew I couldn’t pull that one off with 4 boys in the household and me being the only girl, so I resorted to creating one of my own that says oh hello and I absolutely adore the way it turned out.You are going to be so surprised at how easy this is and how much charm it adds to your doorstep!

Fresh Flower Market Sign

This summer, I've been trying really hard to work on my green thumb. I've never been great at keeping plants alive and I wanted to change that.I decided to create a potting table on my patio and start small. I had a vision of how I wanted it to look and that vision included a sign that said "Fresh Flower Market."I know they make signs that say this, but I'm a budget-friendly DIYer when it comes to things like this. I don't like to spend a lot of money on something that would be fairly easy to make. So that's what I did, and I'm going to show you how to do it as well.
