Easy DIY Fall Decor: Basket Pumpkins

It's time to decorate for fall! I was staring at a basket I had, while trying to figure out how to incorporate it into my fall decor. I was thinking of using it for flowers, but I turned it upside to study it some more, and a light bulb went on. A basket pumpkin!

DIY Brush Stroke Pots

My kitchen window in front of my sink needed a little brightening up. I've seen "brush stroke" type crafts on Pinterest, and I thought it'd be the perfect thing to add to some pots for some more color. They look adorable in my window!

Mason Jar Vases

Every month, several bloggers come together for a Pinterest Challenge. I joined in this month, and made some Spring mason jar vases! We've ALL pinned things that we "intend" to make, but never get around to. This Pinterest Challenge really helps us follow through! The pin I made these from actually used them as votive candle holders, but I wanted spring-y flowers in my house instead!

DIY PVC Pipe Book Storage

My daughter has really been getting into books lately, and every time I go into her room, they're all over the floor. We have a little bookcase, but some of the books are too high for her to reach. We wanted something close to the ground so that she could easily access some of her favorite books. I had seen a cute industrial pipe table shelf on Restoration Hardware, but didn't want to pay over $100. So, I did what any DIYer would do; I made my own, with some tweaks! And, using PVC pipe was waaaay cheaper.

DIY Kitchen Mat Re-do

Our kitchen mat has been looking quite sad. It's dirty from being spilled on, and gets a ton of foot traffic all day long. I really didn't want to have to buy a new one, so I decided to give the old one new life!

Simple Lighted Star Christmas Pallet Sign

If you saw my Christmas Home Tour, you probably saw my lighted pallet star sitting in front of my fireplace. It's super simple and can easily be made in a couple of hours! All you need are pallets, wood glue, and sticks!

Rustic Charmer: From Dresser to Entryway Table

My entryway needed a major update. Major. I had painted the wall that followed into the kitchen an avocado green when we moved in, and I painted all our furniture (shiny!) black. It was dark and dreary and time for some help. So, I painted our wall gray to match the rest of the living room. I also got rid of our little black entryway table, and opted for something with more storage; an antique dresser!

Industrial Copper Pipe Clock

11 other bloggers and I started a DIY Home Depot Gift challenge each month, where we all take the same item from Home Depot and create a gift for someone. This month our item was a copper "t," and the gift was for our spouse/significant other. So, I got to thinking what I could make my husband! I came up with a copper pipe clock for his office. It wasn't too hard, either!

Glamorously Girly Command Center

We had a VERY pathetic command center, where I literally had taped up a huge calendar on the wall. It served its purpose, but I was desperate for more organization. AND, something much prettier. I had an old window that I had bought a few years ago but had never done anything with. I gave it new life and turned it into our glamorous and girly command center! The best part? It was CHEAP!

Bible Verse Advent Calendar

Christmas is almost upon us, and it's time for an advent calendar. Now that I have a family, I wanted a calendar to help my daughter learn the true meaning of Christmas. I created this advent calendar with Bible verse readings each day to remind us this holiday season of Christ's birth.
