DIY Like A Boss Trendy Baby Flocked Onesie

I'm so excited to share the cutest little onesie I dreamed up. If your a parent you already know that your child becomes the boss from the minute they are born. Let's just face it now. My friends at Cricut have a new cartridge being released in the next few weeks called "Trendy T-shirts" and they gave me a first glance look at it and asked me to design a few shirts. They also have quite a few new fonts out too!  This was the first design I came up with and I absolutely love it. I didn't have … [Read more...]

DIY Nursery Whale Lamp

DIY Nursery Whale Lamp

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Before I had Ryder, our friends at challenged us to come up with a fun and easy upcycle project.

How to Build an Extra Wide Simple Dresser

How to Build an Extra Wide Simple Dresser (knockoff PBK Kendall Dresser)

Today, we've teamed up with the amazingly talented Ana White to share how we built this extra wide simple dresser. This may look familiar, you know, the ridiculous expensive Pottery Barn Kids Kendall dresser that is oh-so cute (but not so much the price tag--$900...ouch)!  We met Ana at Haven two years ago and have remained friends ever since.

Choosing the right kitchen backsplash

final supplies

Choosing the right kitchen back splash can be just as stressful (if not more stressful) than the entire kitchen project we worked on! After all, the backsplash is kind of permanent.

I felt that it was a safe option. Before you go to the store, you need to calculate how much you will need. This comes down to square … [Read more...]

How to Add Additional Cabinet Space to Your Kitchen

How to Add Additional Cabinet Space to Your Kitchen

When we were planning our kitchen project, I had mentioned to Jon that I really wanted him to cut out the two sides that backed up to the corner and extend out our cabinet. I knew that our builder did not utilize the space properly (remember, we bought a foreclosure, so this was way out of our control). I knew that I had almost a whole other cabinets worth of room that had been blocked. So as soon as Jon removed the formica countertops … [Read more...]

helpful how-to video installing butcher block on a kitchen island

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Today, I'm switching it up and sharing a kitchen renovation project! I know... I meant to post this weeks ago when I posted about the kitchen island custom bookcase, but then when I went to add pictures into the post I somehow could not find them. Like non-existant. So I either 1. Never took them (which I don't doubt) or 2. my camera ate them (highly unlikely). So that's why it took me a little longer than usual to get this post up. … [Read more...]
