    DIY White Chippy Shelves

    If I have one word of advice on home project DIYs, it’s make your own shelves! Shelves are surprisingly expensive once you start looking, especially for something that is trendy, sturdy, and has real quality. Making your own shelves costs a fraction of the price, and they are so simple to make! You also have a huge range of customization options if you DIY them. There are a ton of wooden and metal corbels online to choose from, and you can add any type and size of wood to the top, in any paint or stain color you choose. Since I already have so much wood in my house, I…

    DIY Holiday Garland

    I’m so excited to share my holiday garland with you all today! I love decor that can double for multiple seasons or holidays. Not only is it cost effective, but since the holidays come and go so quickly, I like to be able to have my decorations out for a little longer. This garland makes a big statement, but is secretly inexpensive and incredibly easy to make. It’s a win win! As soon as I saw the Hearth and Hand Eucalyptus Pinecone Garland at Target, I knew it needed to come home with me! Decorate for Thanksgiving or Christmas, change out the saying, and this garland fits perfectly into both…

    DIY Blanket Ladder with Copper Rungs

    I’ve been wanting a blanket ladder for SO long, but was unwilling to pay $40+ for a wooden ladder, knowing I could make one for under $20. I finally got around to it this month! I’m so pleased with the results and can’t wait to share my $20 blanket ladder with you, but first, I want to share a few lessons I learned from completing this project. One: Take the time to do things the right way and don’t use wood that is slightly bowed… It simply won’t work and you will end up with a crooked ladder. I was so impatient to get this ladder done, that I settled…

    Easy DIY Wooden Fall Sign

    It’s finally October! I LOVE October. I get giddy just thinking about it. It’s easily my favorite month of the year. It could be because my birthday is this month, but I think it’s mostly because October marks the beginning of the holiday seasons, extra time spent with family, all the smells and flavors reserved for fall are finally acceptable again, football season is back (not that I care about watching the games much, but I do love a good football dip), cozy blankets make their way back onto the couch, the temperature starts to drop (and by dropping, here in Florida, I mean it’s finally back in the 80s,…
