How to Pick the Perfect Table for Your Home

navy blue side table from Target

This post is sponsored by Target. We're celebrating our five year anniversary since moving into our house, but yet there is still decorating to be done! Anyone else empathize with me? Sometimes you can put things off and put them off until you finally realize that maybe it's time to bite the bullet, spend a little money, and just make a decision to style that little corner of your house that you've been neglecting!! For me, that little space is my front entryway area. My entryway has become a hodgepodge of garage sale finds, storage for things that have no other place to live, and shoes, coats, and backpacks. It's completely uninviting … [Read more...]

Owl Leaf Wreath

fall leaf owl wreath

A few months ago I shared this Owl Leaf Wreath over at Darice and today I thought I'd share it with you guys in case you missed it!! Fall is officially here and one of my FAVORITE times of the year. I'm a wreath fanatic, so this year I thought I'd add a new wreath to the decor with this fun Fall Leaf Owl DIY wreath! My original idea was to cover the whole wreath in leaves, but after I got started with the first few against the straw, I thought it really looked pretty and festive with the straw wreath being the base for the design, so I decided less was more and went a different direction. This DIY wreath is simple to make! Fall … [Read more...]

An Affordable Way to Update a Room with Casablanca Fans

bedroom updates with fan

I'm not made of money and I'm assuming you're not either, so when it comes to updating my house...every little penny counts and everything I can do to carefully plan out a room update is important. For our bedroom reveal (still in progress) that I showed last week, of course it's easy enough to update the obvious things...bedding, decor, and sometimes even paint choices (although I was happy with our paint colors and that didn't change for us). But what about the less obvious things? Things like, the ceiling fan, for example? Our room had a plain white ceiling light on it. There was no way to walk into the room and flip and switch … [Read more...]

Mini Frame Jewelry Holder

Mini Frame Chicken Wire Jewelry Holder from The Cards We Drew

We've been in our house nearly four years now and just about every room has been updated and redecorated since we moved in...with the exception of our bedroom. The thing is, I LOVE our bedroom. The previous owners had purple and fuchsia stripes in the bedroom that we painted over using a color that match Pottery Barn's Porcelain Blue color. So now that I'm working on some bedroom updates, I thought I'd share this fun little project that I made to help organize stuff that usually ends up on top of our dressers. Using an assortment of mini frames from Cut It Out, I created this mini frame jewelry holder with chicken wire to help me organize … [Read more...]

All opinions are mine alone. #PrepWithPower #CollectiveBias Living in Central Ohio, we have had our fair share of bad storms over the years. It seems that at least once a year for the past few years we have experienced very bad windstorms that take down houses, power lines, trees, and more. Last year we had such a bad storm that it took a matter of days for the electric company to get the power back on. We had a neighbors trampoline from nearly 10 houses down land in our backyard!! After our experiences with several bad storms and a young child (now childREN) I … [Read more...]
