There are plenty of big things left to do in our basement family room, like re-finish the media cabinet or recover the sectional, but I am not ready to tackle those yet. Instead, I have craved quick pick-me-up projects. You know the ones that take only minutes to complete, you have everything you need on [...]
I have a holding area for decor. Is that weird? Throughout our entire basement finishing project I have collected pieces I love here and there. It takes the pressure off trying to accessorize the space all at once.
By the way, have you heard what The Nester is doing? I love that girl…she is a [...]
It is fun to see what you guys are drawn to in the Market. Creating a curated shop of my current favorites was a bit of an experiment…one that I am so glad I did. There has been such a great response.
More important than sales, I am so intrigued by which items [...]
I was itching for something new to put on the mantel, but not interested in buying something. I feel like I am doing a lot of spending for the basement now, so I am not spending for other areas of the home. I still wanted something new. So I made something…easy and cheap.
The tweaking is done…for now. I styled my studio shelves. If your just joining in, you can read about how I made the stair tread shelves here. And, check out the video intro to my studio where I share the purpose of [...]
I just added a bunch of new mood boards to the gallery. While I was uploading them, I noticed some trends or repeat recommendations. All my mood boards are custom and unique, but sometimes I find furniture or decor that is so great, I can’t help but recommend it more than once. Some of these [...]
I thought it would be fun today to show you what I bought on my latest trip to Ikea. There is an Ikea about 20 minutes from my house, but I only go out there 1-2 times per year. It is across the street from the Mall of America, so the place is a zoo [...]
These are my happy scrappy decorative spheres. It felt downright spring-like in here while I was working on this project. My fabric choices were light and bright.
This project was born of two inspirations; upcycled embroidery hoops and fabric wrapping. The embroidery hoop obsession started years ago as I saw so [...]
I rarely decorate for holidays other than Christmas, but this year I feel compelled to do more. My kids are aware and excited for upcoming holidays now. They decorate at school, and I decided it was time to start decorating at home, too. Nothing wrong with a little festivity! I just have one rule…it has [...]
I am proudly keeping produce on display in my kitchen! For over a year now the hubby and I have followed, or tried to follow, a slow-carb diet. This year we transitioned to the Paleo diet. It is also known as “caveman” or hunter/gatherer” diet. I don’t want to spend much time talking about the [...]
I am super excited about this project! I needed some new decor, but I was over buying vases and bowls. I wanted more character and interest, so I made my own finials.
With all the big projects going on in the basement, like cork floors and installing baseboard, I was craving a quick pick-me-up decor project. I am starting to make and collect decorative accessories for the basement. We are getting so close to furnishing the basement and I want to be ready to style it up!

I just can’t help myself from using animals in my holiday decorating. Last year, we made faux ceramic animal ornaments. This year, I was inspired by this gilded elephant by Janell of House of Fifty. I became mildly obsessed with creating my own version.
I found my [...]
