How To Apply Vinyl To A Coffee Table + $100 Giveaway

This post was created in partnership with Snapfish. All opinions are my own. I recently had the chance to give our formal living room an update thanks to my friends at Snapfish! Our formal living and dining room has always been the "last" room to be decorated. The first few years it was kind of a dumping ground for everything we had but couldn't find a place for. Our formal living area also consisted of all sorts of random free furniture we received from friends and family including a … [Read more...]

DIY Rustic Decorative Mirror

I'm excited to share with you a pretty cool DIY project today. I was contacted by our local Habitat Greater Orlando ReStore to create something "new" in honor of Earth Day coming up.

We've shared how to upcycle and upholster a chair, a bench, and a media stand to name a few.  We love giving items a fresh new … [Read more...]

Gifting Christmas

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Living. As always all opinions are our own.  Last month we were contacted by Martha Stewart living to trim a tree. We've participated in past years. Since we already own 2 trees we weren't going to participate. That's when it dawned on me that it would be cool to "gift" Christmas to a family member. My mother inlaw has talked about wanting a new artificial tree ever since I spent the first Christmas with Jon and his family 12 years ago. I … [Read more...]

Nursery Gallery Wall

Thank you to BLACK+DECKER for sponsoring this post and inspiring me to FINALLY finish this project! I have always had a long "honey-do" list. But now with a baby I feel like the list is getting longer and nothing is being crossed off. For weeks, ok, month's I've said I was gonna finish the gallery wall in the nursery.

We made these crows-in-waiting back in 2012 after getting back from our Europe trip. I totally forgot to share these last year (I blame that on the severe pregnancy brain I was experiencing), and when I was going through my draft post a few weeks ago I realized I had this awesome Halloween project waiting in the wings for the world to see! When I first saw the Ravens-in-Waiting project in the Halloween edition of Martha Stewart I knew I needed to make the project. However, using paper packing … [Read more...]

Fast forward to present day and we were in desperate need of refreshing our patio for all the outdoor … [Read more...]
