Mini Tree and Vintage Bottle Display in the Laundry Room


Hello! It's Monday, some people hate Mondays, I personally love them now days because I can stay home with my kiddos and start a new week. We use our Monday's to get ready for school (my son only goes two days a week) clean the house, stay home and relax before the work week. I always try to take some time to myself to decorate a little, especially with the holidays around the corner. I did this little tree display a while ago but I thought I'd share it today with you because I love it and it gives my laundry room that little Christmas kick that it needs. Let's go see the mini tree display!...

DIY Countertops with Contact Paper- Full Tutorial

Hey, loves! I finally got back to my DIY loving lifestyle recently. I was at the Walmart, buying 54654623 things I didn't need and I came across this $5 contact paper. I had seen people using it on counter tops and I wanted to do it because, let's face it, actual marble counter tops are insanely pricey and we're for sure not ready to go gutting our kitchen anytime soon. My dingy fake wood, laminate counter tops had started to make me twitch a little because they had stains, burn marks, scratches, etc on them and I wanted a fresh new look. I decided to just try it out and I'm SO glad I did. I have lots of tips for you so if you're thinking about doing this fun project, read this first!...

A New Collection

Hello, friends! I hope you're having a good week. We're on the down hill slope to the weekend!!! It's snowing today here in Missouri and I don't know how I feel about it. I love me some snow but I have a feeling it's going to be a long cold winter. I feel like we just came out of winter! Summer for sure didn't last long here in old MO. Anyway, today I wanted to share a new collection I am now obsessed with thanks to my Mother-in-law...

Boy's Closet Makeover and a Peek at their Room

Hi, friends! I've been having some technical difficulties over here.... my phone has "no more storage" and it's shattered and turning off, wont take pictures, won't send emails, wont get text messages... one would think it's time for a new phone but I REALLY don't want to pay for another one! Phones are such a pain but in this lifetime we HAVE to have one. Very annoying. Anyway, I've been trying to get this post up for a few days now and I finally made it work. You'll notice the saying on the wall is very "Halloween-ish" but that's because I took these pictures before Halloween! LOL...

A New Addition to the Master Bedroom

Hi, friends! Welcome back! I'm hopping on here quick today to give you a little sneak peek into our master bedroom. I have been very SLOWLY working on it. I did a big makeover on it not long ago and quickly fell out of love, I know, the dramaaaaa... I tend to get an idea in my head and just decide to execute it right then and there and it doesn't turn out the exact way I want because I didn't take my time in choosing every item carefully...

Faux Shiplap on the Fireplace for FREE - No "Shiplap" Required

Hello, friends! Happy beginning of the week! I'm super excited about this post because it's sooooo not something I thought I would ever do! I know. Dramatic. But I seriously never thought I would ever have an ounce of shiplap in my home. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE me some shiplap... but I didn't think I would love it in my home...

Eclectic Vintage Bathroom

Soooo... I'm a loser and totally realized that I NEVER showed our bathroom reno when it was all complete! WHAT THE... We re painted for like the 5th time, updated the faucet and completely redid the floor. I recently gave it yet another "refresh" by switching out the rug for my vintage runner I had in the kitchen. I love shopping my house when I'm feeling bored with my decor. Just trading out a rug can make the room look totally different! Let's go see what my bathroom looks like today...

Vintage Desk in the Living Room and Preschool Pictures

Hi Friends! Happy Monday... I actually don't mind Monday's anymore now that I have some extra time in the week at home. I used to feel so overwhelmed on the weekends trying to get stuff done before the new week when I worked full time but now I don't stress because I have two extra days to get those things done and blog more! So happy about that. Life has changed so much lately. Once kids get into sports and school it seems like all we do is run around ALL THE TIME TO EVERY PLACE EVER! I feel like a zombie. Props to all you parents out there!...

Old Lockers in the Kitchen - Our New Pantry

This post has been a long time coming! I got these lockers a few months ago but never got around to posting about them. I did share a picture on my INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK but wanted to share where I got them and how I decided on turning it into a pantry! I love this little corner even more now with these old green lockers. I've been trying to add in some color in my home and this muted green is definitely one of my faves...

10 Very Common Household Items I Live Without

Hi all! This post is kind of a fun one for me because I've wanted to do it for a while. I sometimes wonder if because I don't see the need or purchase certain things at the store, if I'm normal? haha sounds silly. But there are a few very common things that people can't live without that I just haven't ever felt the need for. I'd love to know if you feel the same way! Somethings just aren't necessary! And as I'm going through this wanting-to-purge-all-the-things-and-live-simpler phase, I'm wanting to cut out some other things in my home that I pay for often that I think I can live without... I'll mention those at the end. SO, let's get into it!
