DIY Brushstroke Lamp

I admit, I can be a bit crazy at times. You see, I have a serial re-decorating condition where I am constantly changing the decor in my home. My  condition has left me with plenty of left-over decor including lamps, vases and plenty of pillows (just ask my husband). Recently inspired by a Bunny Williams lamp, I decided to make use of a neglected one- just rotting away in my garage. Today I am sharing a tutorial for this DIY…

15 Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas

Guys, I cannot believe it is already November! Where does the time go? That means it is time to starting planning for the holidays, and my favorite one, Thanksgiving, is only a few weeks away.  I thought I would share some amazing Thanksgiving tablescape ideas with you. It is kind of embarrassing to admit, but I have never actually created a Thanksgiving tablescape. In fact, I don't even host Thanksgiving. I am lucky enough to get to sit back, relax,…

Beginner’s Guide: Gallery Wall on a Budget

For the longest time, I have wanted to display a gallery wall in the hallway of my home. I love the idea of displaying a little piece of my family's story for all of our guests to see. Unfortunately, I knew the cost of frames and prints would add up quickly,  considering a single frame can cost up to $50. Not to mention, the thought of a project requiring so many measurements and precision overwhelmed me. Well folks, I finally…

Indigo Abstract Art DIY

So I know it's October and I should be gracing you with fall inspiration posts and Halloween crafts, but I have to keep it real.... Ya'll know I am not much of a "crafter". It is still hot as Hades here in the dirty south, and  I am just not feeling the fall spirit. Not to be completely useless though, I do have an easy little DIY for you today. It seems anytime I go shopping for a specific item of…

Fall Home Tour 2016

Welcome to my first fall home tour, ya'll! While it is still well into the nineties outside and my A/C went out yesterday, I am going to try my best to give you guys some autumnal spirit. Given that the last blog post I published was my summer home tour,  I am a tad bit embarrassed.  Simply put, I have been overwhelmed and exhausted since the birth of my second baby boy back in April. You see, I have been trying my…

Summer Home Tour

So I know I am a little late in the game, but I wanted to share a mini-summer home tour with you guys today. Better late than never, right? As you all know, I love coastal, contemporary decor. Consequently, summer is typically my favorite decor season.   To my dismay, I recently had to replace my beloved white Ikea Ektorp slipcover with a darker and more stain resistant Nordvalla gray. While I preferred the white, my boys destroyed the white to…

How to Paint Over Dingy Grout – DIY Gray Grout

If I ever took the time to devise an inventory of worst home decor ideas ever, I think white floor grout would be close to the top of that list (along with wallpaper and popcorn ceilings). While I love the look of dark gray tiles with contrasting white grout, I know it is a mistake waiting to happen between my dogs, kids and loathing of mops. When I completed the initial walk- through of my fixer upper before purchasing it,…
