If you are new around here, we like to do projects. I’m always dreaming up simple or big DIY’s in our home, and for the past month, we’ve worked on transforming our “twin room.” Everything was painted a medium grey when we moved in, and since we have little natural light in our home, it translated into feeling very dark and gloomy. In December we finally decided to paint it white, and you can see the transformation here. Yesterday we also decided to add some simple wainscotting for a statement wall, and I couldn’t be more in love with how it turned out – and best yet, it was super inexpensive![Read more…] about Simple Wainscotting That Will Make a Statement
We got back from Tofino five days ago and immediately we got started on the cheap renter board and batten in our master bedroom.
I had this vision for our bedroom and I wanted it to feel like a beach bungalow.
This board and batten method is so simple and anyone can do it – best yet, it costs 43 dollars in boards and a can of paint![Read more…] about Cheap Renter Board and Batten
January 1st I set a lot of huge goals for myself. Eating healthier, working out, going to bed earlier, focusing on inner health annnnd to DIY a lot more. It’s how this blog was founded in 2015 and my most popular and most viewed blogs are DIY blogs, so I knew I wanted to incorporate a ton more of it into 2020. Today I’ll be teaching you how to build your own asymmetrical wood wall.[Read more…] about How To: Asymmetrical Wood Wall
Hey again friends. We’ve been doing a lot of projects around the house lately and this one was done a few weeks ago and I don’t think I ever showed you.
If I could ever shiplap my entire house I would literally die. But, that wont happen until we purchase home someday out in the country. For now, we need to build DIY Shiplap Wall hangings so I can get my fill. These are amazing for renters that don’t want to put holes in the walls & you can move it if you get tired of it.
Ideally, I think I want to make one that expands through our entire dining room, but for now, this one will do.
We cut a little hole in our sign so we can still use our outlet as we plan to eventually build a sliding barn door console for this nook and have two pretty rustic lamps in here. But for now, we have this beat up X-Frame Console Table hanging out & it serves its job.
In these photos the console looks so busy, but in real life it looks so pretty. Not busy at all.
I absolutely love my rustic tired mug holder that I purchased when we lived in the old farmhouse. I had it on my Island for the longest time and now I’m kind of loving it on this console.
It’s basically just a compilation of things I love. Beat up decor & distressed goodness.
If wanting to also build this ultra easy shiplap sign, head on over to Design, Dining & Diapers. She has a great tutorial up. We never really followed a tutorial when making ours, but then we totally forgot to document the plans. So head on over to her blog and she has super easy to follow plans.
Thanks for stopping in today. We are busy building a bed for my parents as well a toddler bed for our daughter today. The snow is starting to melt which, I’m not going to lie, makes me sad. But trying to boost spirits with other things today. Also, because people ask me where my pieces are from, constantly. I’ll be doing shopable links in the bottom of every post so you can see where to buy everything.
PS. I totally realized I blogged about this twice.. so ignore my insanity and double posting!
Have an amazing weekend friends!
