    Laundry Room Refresh

    Laundry room refresh. I may be an oddball but I enjoy laundry. Washing and drying and making all those dirty clothes smell good. But my favorite part is folding the clothes, especially my sons’ clothes. I find it quite relaxing folding cute little outfits. But I know plenty of people who despise laundry day. It seems to be a never-ending job and always piles up if we do not keep up with it. But what can help push you to do something that you are may be avoiding? A nice, fresh, beautiful room where you will want to spend time in and complete some loads of laundry. We have lived…

    DIY Dryer Ball Spray

    DIY dryer ball spray. Recently, I have been researching how to replace all the store-bought products that have a ton of toxins added to them. So, I started with my laundry room products. There were a couple of reasons why I wanted to ditch the dryer sheets. One, my youngest son has very sensitive skin and breaks out or his skin get so dry. We have changed the products we were using in the bath and lotions afterward gto see if any would fix the issue. Some things helped but then in a few days, he was breaking out in a rash again. The laundry products were the next thing…

    DIY Toddler Bed Rails

    DIY toddler bed rails. We have recently been on the fence about moving our youngest son out of his crib and into a toddler bed. At some point, toddlers need a little more freedom. Moving them out of their crib gives them a sense of independence. If you are on the fence like we were, check out this post on When to transitions to a toddler bed to help with what signs to look for if they are ready. In that post, I discussed how we moved my oldest son to a full-size bed when he was eighteen months. Plaid sheets | Comforter | Moose pillow pet This post may…

    Wine Bottle DIY Projects

    Wine bottle DIY projects. I have seen a video post floating around the internet with a guy going for a run and checking everyone’s recycling bins. Each bin he comes to is full of wine bottles. Working from home is not for everyone and it seems a glass of wine helps alleviate that stress. Instead of recycling all the bottles, why not add it to your home decor. This post contains two do it yourself projects to repurpose your used wine bottles. Before you are able to complete these projects. Remove the labels. There will be a sticky residue left from the label. Use an adhesive remover to take the…

    DIY Address Signs

    Address signs. I know I have not shared any DIYs lately. Due to being quarantined to our homes, we have not ventured out to buy materials to make all of our upcoming projects. Believe me, it is driving me crazy that we can’t build anything. I wish we had stocked up on all the materials before being confined to our house. That being said, I will share with you a project we completed last year to add some curb appeal to our home. We had our home built in 2018. Even though it is a new home, there are always projects and upgrades to make the house “our home“. Of…

    DIY Faux Wood Beam

    DIY Faux Wood Beam. A couple of years ago, Brooke and I had a local builder build us a home. It was our very first experience and looking back there are a ton of things we would have done differently. But that is entirely another post for another day. What I am trying to get to is building a house is not cheap, so we went with the basic things with no upgrades. We decided that we would put our own touches and style on the house throughout the years we live here. Our first big project was adding a faux wood beam between the living room and kitchen/ dining…

    DIY Shoe Rack and Storage

    DIY shoe rack. If you are a mom or a parent, you know there will constantly be items lying around your house. Toys, cups, clothes and so much more, just laying on the floor. I can hear my mom now, “Pick up your shoes and take them upstairs”. The first thing Oliver does when he gets (basically) anywhere is to take his shoes off. We had taught him to put his shoes on the steps to be taken upstairs, but then there were just pairs of shoes on the steps to trip over. Hubby and I both were terrible at leaving shoes just sit under the couch after we took…
