{Video} DIY Board and Batten

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Homes.com Oh man, am I excited to finally share our video on how to install board and batten. I swear this feels like it has been our longest project to date. I know it hasn't, but it feels like it. After we found out we were expecting we started brainstorming some ideas for the nursery. We both knew we wanted to install board and batten in the nursery.

Painting the Nursery

Painting the Nursery

Do you like to paint? I don't mind it. I guess its a good thing since I fee like I paint a room in our house just about every month. Last year, at Haven I met the people at HomeRight and they shared the HomeRight® PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Applicator with me. I'll be honest, I was skeptical at first, but I still wanted to give it a try. I never got to give it a try in 2013 and I figured the perfect project to try it on in 2014 was the nursery! After de-cluttering the nursery in just one … [Read more...]

How to Refinish an End Table with #3MDIY

This post is a collaboration with 3M DIY. Early last year, our neighbor, Edie, came to us asking if we could help her refinish an end table. We told her yes, but then project after project (and pregnancy) got in the way. We made it a resolution to ourselves that we were going to refinish the end table for her birthday (which was last Friday)! We picked it up in the morning and brought it back to her by the end of the day. She was amazed at the drastic difference and said it was her best … [Read more...]

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts.  Earlier this month, I received my final box for the 12 Months of Martha campaign I've been working on all year.

Which makes sense since as a DIYer I tend to make a lot of handmade gifts in the month of December (including baked goods). The December box consisted of: Compartment Treat Boxes Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookie … [Read more...]

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts.  Day 6 of the 12 Days of Handmade Ornaments! Today, I'm sharing with you my Glass Painted Monogram Ornament using Martha Stewart Craft products. A few years ago I went on a shopping spree when they had the plastic ornaments heavily discounted at Michaels. Since then I've had what looks like bubbles hanging above my craft room desk. I decided to use a few of them and try my hand at the glass paints. The photos don't do … [Read more...]

Wood Pallet Wreath Art

Wood Pallet Wreath Art

I'm so excited to share with you today the Wood Pallet Wreath Art I created for our front room where our Jingle Brights Christmas Tree stands. When the wreath was first sent to us I knew I wanted to do more than just hang it on the wall. I knew I wanted to make it more like an art piece... so that's when I started starring at the scrap wood in the garage. I worked on this project earlier this month, back when Jon was trying to finish up on our kitchen. The day I chose to create the wood pallet … [Read more...]
