Second-Hand Ice Chest Makeover


About a year and a half ago, our neighbors offered us this metal ice chest after they had gotten a new one.  I instantly accepted and I had the idea of painting it, but it just never happened.  It sat in our garage glaring at me every time I walked past it and I'm pretty sure my husband was glaring at me too, since it was another thing taking up space.  We don't entertain much in ...

Junior Builder Easter Basket


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Hershey Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Easter is coming up, and fast!  Does your Easter Bunny leave your kiddos fun baskets full of Easter goodies?  In our house, the Easter Bunny sometimes has a theme for the Easter baskets.  Sometimes they're just basic.  Of course, every Easter basket has to have candy ...

Chemical Free Spring Cleaning – And a Giveaway!!!


  It's that time of year again when we all start to get the urge to get some spring cleaning done.  I'll be honest, spring cleaning isn't exactly my favorite thing to do.  With two little boys and a dog, it seems like the second I deep clean a room, they figure out a way to bring it back to its original state.  Having said that, my cleaning arsenal is now equipped with a ...

Painting Cabinets with Chalk Paint


 Remember this mood board I created for our den makeover?  I've been checking things off of my list and it's getting close to complete!  It's been a little bit of a slower project, but I'm completing things as time and money allow. Last week, I shared how I replaced the ugly old desktop with this gorgeous wooden desktop.  I'm still amazed at how much better ... [ Read More ]

5 Minute Fix: Simple Globe Makeover


    Hey everyone!  I've got a crazy simple 5 minute fix to share with you all today.  A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing through the office aisle at Target and noticed they had this pretty little desk globe.  I've been wanting a globe for a while, and I thought that it would be fun to get one for my boys' new desk space.  At $14.99, I couldn't really beat ...

Bold Herringbone Stenciled Curtains

Happy Monday!  Well, sort of.  It's raining, which I love (and we need it)!  But it also means that the block wall being built around our property isn't going to be worked on today, which also delays our pool being finished. Even though I'm still working on the den, I have a hard time just working on one project at a time.  That means the craft room/office is starting to get ... [ Read More ]
