    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…

    DIY Bookshelf Ledges. First, I would like to tell you about the books I wanted to display on the shelves. I had purchased these amazing baby books from the Polka dot print shop.

    DIY String Art

    DIY string art. String art has become a popular way of creating your own unique decor. It has been around for a few years but has recently become popular again. It can be as simple or difficult as you would like it to be. List of supplies a background of your choice 1-inch flat head nails string or thin yarn scissors hammer I chose a wide piece of wood as my background and had my handy husband cut it into a few even pieces. We stained it an espresso color. I decided to use the heart as a template. You can freehand the design or draw it with chalk. Also,…

    Take a Look in the Mirror

    Take a look in the mirror. Living with all boys in my household we rarely have a use for a mirror. I mean do guys even make sure they look presentable. Haha only kidding!! Well, I needed that to change, but when I searched for mirrors for our room, they are insanely expensive. Tell me how a mirror with a wood frame cost more than a hundred dollars. So, we decided to make one. We bought a Mainstays mirror from Walmart. The mirror was six dollars. We had to take apart the mirror from the plastic frame. We started by ripping off the backing and then cutting the glue that…

    DIY Growth Arrow Chart

    DIY growth arrow chart. Let’s take a walk down memory lane. I bet most of our parents had some way to document our growth as we started getting taller. My mom had a nice ice cream stick chart that she wrote on when she checked our height. When our family moved to my parent’s house now (and they added some more kids), they used a piece of wall in the kitchen to document our height. It is always nice to look back at a certain age and see who was taller. When I had my boys, I wanted something that added to our decor style. So, we wanted something a…

    Easy, Rustic Way to Hang Photos

    Rustic way to hang photos. I wanted a really easy and not so expensive way to hang photos. Mostly, I wanted to share the boys’ cute little monthly photos that I wrestled to get each month until they were a year old. With all that effort I was not going to let them collect dust in a photo album. I wanted to see how my little ones grew on a daily basis. Instead of spending money on bulky picture frames, I searched my house for things I had. Things you probably have lying around your house also. All I needed was some twine, a hammer and nails, and tiny clothespins…
