DIY table leg candlesticks

Hey there! I have a fun table leg-turned-candlestick DIY for you today! I've seen this idea done all over, but my friend Kate recently did a more modern version that I was digging big time. I'm joining Krylon to share one of their gorgeous Color of the Year spray paint palettes for the new year!  I LOVED this "New Heritage" palette Krylon...

My biggest bookcase build yet!

Soooo, remember last week when I shared the projects I was hoping to tackle this year and I didn't mention this big one? Yeah. 😂 I planned to start this HUGE built in project later in the year, but then I realized we spend more time in the basement in the winter...so why not get it done now?  And when I started figuring out...

Best projects of 2020 and plans for 2021!

Hello there! This is always one of my favorite posts of the year because I see how productive I am...even when I don't feel like it! I don't feel like a total sloth after pulling this post together. Especially after this last crazy year! I didn't think I'd have much to share, but I did plenty last year. They weren't all huge before and after...

The perfect under the sink organization solution!

You know how great it is to find a solution for an organization issue that's bugged you for years? That's how I feel about this under cabinet organization fix I recently found. I just can't believe it took me this long to find it! We had to make quick design decisions when finishing this house since we took over a spec build...

New wall in the basement to create game room spaces!

We just finished up one of our biggest projects so far in this house...and I didn't take ANY progress pictures! WHAT. We hired most of it out and even though it took almost two months to complete, I didn't take any pics along the way.  I guess because it's just a wall? But it's made a big difference in our basement! I have plenty of after...

Great tips for holiday storage {that make the next year MUCH easier!}

Hello there and happy new year! I hope you had a lovely holiday season! I didn't mean to take two weeks away, but I've been busy getting the Christmas decor put away and it took longer than I thought.  I forgot when I was putting it up that I have to put it allll away. ;) Although in general I find putting holiday decor away is much faster ...

Our 2020 Christmas home tour!

Hello my friends and happy Christmas week! After this publishing this post all I have to do is wrap some presents...and then I'm done! Are you ready for the festivities?  This Christmas means more than ever...because #2020, of course. I think we can all agree, even with the good this year (and we've had a lot of it) -- it's been rough. We're...

The PERFECT Christmas cookie!

Looking for an easy and delicious cookie to make for the holidays? I'm a traditionalist at heart -- the tried and true cookies are my favorite. My sister passed on her favorite snickerdoodle recipe to me years ago – it’s a quick and easy one and I usually have everything on hand to make it. If you can’t tell by now, quick prep and easy ingredients...

TONS of easy and fun holiday wall decor ideas

I think one of the easiest ways to add some festive touches around the house is with art -- of course they look great on the walls, but some holiday frames layered on a countertop, bookcases or picture ledges also goes a long way! I've shared a ton of ways to do that for really cheap over the years, but I made some new ones this year so I figured I'd...

Elegant $2 DIY candle holders {using dollar store items!}

I'm continuing my dollar store candle DIYs with this beauty! You can see the snowy candles I shared earlier here.  This is such a good one folks...I actually made these years ago and I can't believe it's taken me this long to make them again! One of them broke a few years back and I never got to making a new match.  I started over with two...
