I'm super excited to share these hacks with y'all! Rob's cousin, Sheri, came to me and was looking for a solution for some storage issues she had with her new camper. The camper she and her husband, Pat recently purchased is nothing short of amaaaaazing--totally modern and beautiful--but as anyone knows who has spent time in a camper, you have to get a little creative with your storage or you'll find yourself frustrated...with the quickness! I tried these 5 hacks out on Sheri and Pat's camper and I got 4 thumbs up! What's even better is not a nail was hammered and not a screw was screwed.
One man's trash is another man's treasure. That quote pretty much sums up mine and Rob's life lately! A few months ago we had a new neighbor move in across the street who apparently did some sort of renovation on the inside of their house. Over the span of a few weeks, we'd see interior doors and other things piled up on the street corner. One day, Rob came home with an old Dutch door from the street corner that I was hoping we'd be able to refinish and use for our kitchen/side door but unfortunately it wasn't the correct size. Instead of putting it back out by the road, Rob kept talking about making the top part of the door (the window pane portion) into a giant picture frame--I wasn't in the mood to deal with refinishing the wood at the time but now I'm so glad that I took a stab at it. The picture frame turned out so good and I didn't even touch a paint brush (of course the final look isn't for everyone but we love the shabby chicness of it).
Everyone knows by now that I'm trying to teach myself to sew. While I would love to eventually use my machine for bigger, more elaborate projects, I can't help but get excited when I create functional items for everyday use. I've come across a lot of ideas online and I had to try my hand at these washcloth hacks!
Whether you're like me and have little kids/babies who spill and stain your chair cushions or you just like to switch things up every so often when it comes to your home decor, this project is a quick and easy solution for either problem.
One problem I have is seeing a potential project in just about anything and everything--I'm a self proclaimed crafting hoarder and I'm trying to be better about what I keep so as not to drive Rob completely bonkers. Something that I have a ton of that I know can be used in so many ways is a bin of wine bottles. Whether we've popped open a bottle for dinner with friends or my many friends keeping theirs for me, I've collected them over the years and have actually gotten rid of a lot of them when trying to purge the basement. However, I still have several and thought I'd finally do something with them.
Ok so I know we've all seen the bookshelves online that people have made from old painter's ladders. I've had my eye on them for years now and have wanted to make one so bad, so I finally did...with the help of Rob of course. It really wasn't as bad as I had imagined in my mind and I think it came out so cute!

My sister-in-law, Bree, is getting married this fall so we are in full wedding planning mode over here. She is having a gorgeous outdoor wedding so she found this idea for yard tic-tac-toe and asked me to create one for her reception. There was definitely some sweat equity that went into making this (literally) but I'm pleased with how it came out.
As I'm sure I've mentioned in previous posts, we love to have friends over and entertain; granted, it's rare lately because of everyone's busy schedule, we still love to have an occasional gathering nonetheless. Even for a last minute dinner party, I love to use what I have to spruce up the table and make it look nice. I came across two really cool ideas for doing just that and I had to try them myself. Though they unfortunately won't last forever, they were fun and easy to create either way.
