How I Renovated My 1980’s Kitchen on a Crazy Low Budget

One of the driving forces of my blog, since its inception, has been to empower women. I want to inspire all of my awesome readers to  live fulfilling, inspired lives in beautiful surroundings..... regardless of financial inhibitions (believe me, the struggle is real). For many, the kitchen is the soul of the home where we domestic goddesses spend countless hours preparing meals for our families and entertaining guests.

DIY No Sew Stamped Pillow

Aside from mud cloth and shibori, one of my favorite new trends in the textile realm right now is hand-blocked printed fabric. In fact, some of my favorite designers are incorporating this centuries-old tradition into their design schemes, and I cannot stop swooning over it. Today, I am going to show you how I made a hand-blocked (or stamped) pillow cover. Even better..there is no sewing required!   For those of you unfamiliar with the term "hand-blocked" , let me give…

Affordable Boho Rugs for $100

For the past few months, I have been on a vintage rug hunt of sorts. You see, I have fallen hard for kilim and vintage inspired rugs...the types often included in  boho chic design schemes. Not only are they a great way to add a worldly and eclectic interest to a space, but most designs are also great at hiding dirt ( awesome if you have pets or kiddos). In my quest for the perfect yet affordable boho rug, I have…

No-Sew Fabric Shibori Planter DIY

You know that term crazy cat lady? Well, I think I am becoming the crazy indoor plant lady.Today, I am sharing a super cheap and easy way to beautify ugly, plastic pots ....no sewing or skill required. It started out innocently enough. My husband was at the hardware store (or as my three-year-old refers to as the Hogware store). He called  to ask if there was anything I needed. My husband is certainly well-trained, because I always have some obscure request. This time,…

DIY Centerpiece Using Upcycled Thrift Swag

Today I wanted to share a simple and cheap centerpiece tutorial. Given the weekend I had,  I was definitely in the mood for cheap and easy. You see, this weekend was quite the  shit show. In the midst of a mudroom remodel and  complete deck and fence demo/build ( a $30,000 surprise),  we found out our pool has rusted through ...basically beyond repair because the genius who installed it back-filled it with dirt and left metal debris against the walls of…
