    Char-BOO-Terie On a Budget

    I love good food in the fall time! I put together this festive Char-BOO-terie board for my family! It made for a WONDERFUL dinner! This would also be great for any gathering!! I did this entire board a budget. I shopped mostly Great Value brand at Walmart. Everything came from Walmart. It is 100% possible to make food fun during this season and still stay on budget. Just be creative while shopping Walmart brands!You can even order online and pick up which gives more time for creating and being festive! Speaking of time, none of this took much time at all! For example, the mummy dogs are just hot dogs wrapped…

    DIY Pottery Pumpkins

    Grab some cheap jack-o-lanterns, paint and baking soda and make them look high end in minutes! Watch this quick video for a visual how to! Paint the jack-o-lanterns. These are the colors I used! While the paint is still slightly wet, sprinkle some baking soda over the jack-o-lantern. I used a little sponge brush to blend it in. TADA!! That’s all!

    Painted Kitchen Cabinet

    I had my brand new classic white kitchen cabinets painted. Call me crazy for painting brand new cabinets, but I LOVE them painted! Last year we remodeled our over 100 year old home. There were so many decisions to be made and a tight timeline so I picked a safe option. Classic white. Over the past twelve months I’ve tried to add warmth to our kitchen in several ways. Finally, I decided to do the CRAZY and paint the brand. new. cabinets.  This was not a DIY.. Let me be clear, this was not a DIY for us. I read lots of reviews until I found a local painter with…

    Peel & Stick Tile

    I’ll start by saying this was my husband’s idea! He said, “we should order some peel and stick tile and do a backsplash for our tub/shower.” Of course I loved that idea!!  I jumped online and ordered this tile . No doubt, it definitely is BEAUTIFUL! However, my husband pictured using 12″x12″ vinyl tile.  The tile I ordered is a few steps up from that! It looks and feels like a mosaic tile. It’s GORGEOUS stone-like peel and stick tile! But it’s a little more work than what my husband meant when he said peel and stick tile. Let’s be clear – 100% WORTH IT!  The tile  comes in sheets with a backing…

    Add Texture to Any Wall Quick and Easy

    Looking for a quick way to add amazing texture to a wall? Read this!! We took pole wrap from Home Depot (linked here) and nailed it to a wall in our small bathroom. This little bathroom is small but has so much potential! It’s the project I’m working on right now. So much in this space is white – walls, tub and white tiles. This 1 hour DIY really elevated this little bathroom! I’m already wanting to do this DIY again somewhere else in our home!   It was a little long for our walls, so we trimmed a little off each panel so it would fit our wall.  We used…

    Retreat Green

    So… I bought green paint! If you know me, you know this is very unlike me and my usual style. I naturally gravitate towards neutrals when it comes to our home (Remington’s room being my only exception). I used the color ‘Frostworks’ by Sherwin Williams in Remi’s room and his room is my favorite room in the house. This is what gave me a push to try green somewhere else! Before the holiday season, we started remodeling our laundry room. We only have a few more final touches to go before it’s finished – one being the cabinetry! This week I bought a cabinet and I’m painting it the color ‘Retreat’ Sherwin Williams.  Retreat is a…

    Office Space Glam up

    A sure way to increase productivity is glamming up your office space. We have a small room we call “the office”. Currently, it’s a his and hers situation.  I have one side of the room and my husband has the other. So many people, like us, work from home these days and that change is welcomed by most. Lots of us have found small little nooks to call our “office” space in our home, and those little spaces can be so cute if we have the right set up! I gave my little desk space a GLAM UP in one afternoon. The change is amazing, and I’m so happy with…

    Lavender Sugar Scrub

    Looking for a last minute gift idea that doesn’t cost much money? SO WAS I! I was brainstorming for a quick gift idea that would make someone feel pampered. Personally I love to use a nice smelling scrub in the shower. Especially if I’m shaving my legs! So I grabbed some little glass jars and made this quick gift!  Truth be told – I had all but one of these items at my house already. You probably have everything you need for this also! (TIP – many times you can find glass Ball jars at thrift stores!)  For this project I wanted all the jars to match!  What You’ll Need:…

    Wallpaper in The Guest Room

    Wallpaper can do wonders to a room. Seriously, I’m amazed by this gold speckled peel and stick wallpaper. I wanted to add some character to our guest bedroom by adding a little wallpaper to a wall. This DIY took an ordinary room and made it into a funky glamorous space!  It took me about two hours to do this wall. The more I did it, the faster I got. It really started speeding up in the end!  What I did: The wallpaper I used is a peel and stick. I cut it to size leaving a little room on the ends. Then peeled off the backing as I stuck it…
