Jingle Brights Inspired Christmas Tree

Martha Stewart Living Christmas Tree from SewWoodsy.com

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Living.    Last year, we had the opportunity to participate in a Martha Stewart Living holiday campaign-- we decked our entry hall. And boy did we ever with all the amazing decorations we found at The Home Depot. This year we got a similar opportunity except this time we were decorating a Christmas tree. We've talked about getting a new tree for a few years now--our current artificial tree was a slim pine and was over 7 years old. … [Read more...]

{World Market} Summer Patio Refresh + Video

Summer Patio Refresh with World Market via SewWoodsy.comSummer Patio Refresh with World Market via SewWoodsy.com

This is a sponsored post brought to you by World Market. All opinions are always my own. Last Friday, marked the first day summer. What better way to kick off summer than to refresh our back patio. Last year, we received a used set of patio furniture after Jon did some work for a friend. We loved the set and kept the cost minimal and never replaced the cushions that were given to us. Fast forward to present day and we were in desperate need of refreshing our patio for all the outdoor … [Read more...]

DSC_0481

By now, most of you should know that Mr. Woodsy and I LOVE to decorate for the holidays. Typically, by Christmas we are exhausted from the house-wide decorating that goes on for Halloween. But since we didn't decorate like crazy people this Halloween we are kind of decorating like crazy people for Christmas. Our home is officially decorated for Christmas! We finished over the long weekend. … [Read more...]

{Inspiration Board} Decorating for the Holidays

World Market Christmas Decor

We are in full holiday mode in our house. I know that Thanksgiving is THIS WEEK, but we have already started decorating. I think this is because we aren't mentally and physically drained from all the crazy Halloween decorating this year. Maybe it was a good thing to take a year off from extreme Halloween decorating. Then again--I feel like I'm doing some extreme Christmas decorating (you'll see what I've been up to in the coming weeks)! I spent a good part of the weekend doing some virtual … [Read more...]

{Decorating Dilemmas} Our Living Room

fabric inspirations for decorating our living room

I had no intentions to redecorate our living room anytime soon. That was until Mr. Woodsy scored all that furniture last month during his morning walk with our dog. I fell in love with the entertainment stand and knew that I wanted to redo it. Paint it bold, remove the tacky particle board on the back, give it some sexy new legs... you know. RE-DO IT! Plus I loved these pictures... I wanted to use them in our house, and the only place I could think about incorporating them was in our … [Read more...]

Outdoor Living Room Reveal + Michelob ULTRA Light Cider

cost of the outdoor living room

Today, we are taking a break from our Master Bedroom Revamp Projects and revealing a little side project we completed in less than a half day. What goes best with a brand new outdoor living room? Cider of course! A few weeks ago Mr. Woodsy sent me a series of text messages asking if I wanted an outdoor furniture set. Upon reviewing a few photos I immediately said yes! It was a used set but with a little TLC I knew we could make it our own and make it better! The going price tag was … [Read more...]

{Tutorial} Make Your Own Spooky Ghost

Last year we featured a ghost project. We were so inspired by the project that we made one of our own. This was a last minute project that Mr. Woodsy insisted we needed to make. Because of this he tackled this on his own while I worked on a really cool project that will be featured on Eighteen25 next month! My job was to purchase the materials and take photos. This is a relatively inexpensive project to make and took less than an hour to complete. Actually, we completed this project the day … [Read more...]

{Bowdabra Design Team} Fall Harvest Wreath

Happy Friday! I'm on the Bowdabra Blog today for the third Friday in a row showcasing my lovely Fall Harvest Wreath. My mother in-law graciously gave use this wreath a few years ago. She always stored the wreath in a box each year until the Fall months where she hung it on her door.  We keep the same tradition going, and to be honest it still looks new!  I've always felt though that it needed a little extra pizzaz.  After adding the bow I'm in love with my wreath once … [Read more...]

Tutorial: Fabric Bulletin Board {revamp}

A really good friend of mine gave me a beige on beige fabric bulletin board last summer. I knew I wanted it, but I also knew that the beige on beige was going to have to go! For months I looked for fabric, and thus I found this beautiful black and off white print. I scoured the ribbon aisles at Michaels Crafts and fell in love with this turquoise. Thankfully, Mr. Woodsy helped me with this project. I have the begining stages of arthritis in my hands, so gripping a nail gun is out of the … [Read more...]
