Red, White, and Blue Porch Tour


From turquoise and lime to red, white, and blue!  My front porch got a complete decor over all this summer.  I like that it is transitional from the beauty of red and blue, to the holiday decor for 4th of July just by adding some American flags.

I give you an in depth tour of my front porch in the video linked below.  You'll see the sitting area, the front flower bed, and also the front door entry.  I hope that you are inspired!

IKEA Haul | Farmhouse Style Bedroom Decor



IKEA obsessed?  I think so!  Or at least I am anyway.  I just love that place.  I'm a total sucker for all of it's advertising ploys, food specials, rows of stocked merchandise that look so appealing... even if you don't need an item or know what you'll do with it when you get home but you buy it anyway.  Yep, that's me.  Pure love.

We waited a long time to get an IKEA in our area.  I had never been to one till this one was built.  Even before it was open, I knew I'd have a love/love relationship with this amazing store.

Alright, enough about my odd love for IKEA.  Onto the topic of this video haul.  We are I am in the middle of a bedroom remodel.  From blues and whites to neutral and farmhouse(y).  I love (again I love), that IKEA has some great decor items that fit right into that decor theme.  I give you a look into the items that I purchase for our bedroom makeover and also explain what I'll be doing with them all in the video linked below.  I hope you are inspired!

DIY Chalk Painted Fabric


If there is an easier way, I tend to go that route.  Especially when it comes to crafting and decorating.  My awesome mom passed this chair down to me when she got a new replacement for her home.  I loved this chair, just not so much the yellow and orange accents.  They matched her decor to a "T," however not so much my neutral color pallet farmhouse style home.  I could have slip covered it.  I thought about doing that with drop cloth.  Then I thought, that will take a lot of time and some skills that I am not so sure I have (sewing).  So maybe one day down the road I will get brave and slipcover something, but the project was not it.

Instead of slip covering the chair, I decided to enhance it's beauty.  I used some chalk paint and a paint brush, that's it!  Check out my video linked down below to see the before and after, as well as how I transformed this chair to match my bedroom's new style.  I hope you are inspired!

DIY Scrap Wood Sign | 4th of July Decor


I always say, save those scraps!  I even go as far as cutting bad pieces of scrap off and keeping the good parts.  They always seem to get used in some way or another, so it's always good to keep them around.

This wood sign is made with all scraps from my scrap pile.  I ripped some 1"x12"s down and had nice square strips left over.  Not knowing what they would be good for, I threw them into the scrap pile.  Those pieces found their purpose in today's tutorial.  They created this beautiful framed wood sign to celebrate the upcoming 4th of July holiday.

See all the details of this project and build in the tutorial I've created below.
I hope you are inspired!

DIY Chunky Framed Wood Signs



This DIY was an inspiration from framed wood signs I saw at Hobby Lobby.  Their prices are hard to beat at 50% off and I'm not against buying them to save myself the work of making them myself.  However, the signs Hobby Lobby had were far too smaller for where I wanted to display them.  That leads me to this tutorial.

I finally got around to making these framed wood signs for me and my hubby's bedroom.  I had lots of left over pieces of 2x2's laying around which led to the creation of these chunky framed wood signs verses the normal 1x2's that I use for framing with.  They are just perfect and I really love them.

I hope this video tutorial inspires you to get creative with your wood signs and your decor!
Enjoy!

DIY Drop Cloth Curtains



If you haven't seen my post and video tutorial on how to bleach drop cloth - you can see that here.
This is a continuation of that post, I'll be sharing how I turned those drop cloths into beautiful farmhouse style curtains!

I have a little twist to mine since they are used in my bedroom and I need black out curtains in there.  It's a neat little trick I share with you in the video tutorial below.
I hope you are inspired!

DIY Porch Flag Decor


Pinterest is so full of ideas and I try to stay off there because my mind starts getting stuck on my need to do all of the ideas I find.  I came across this ladder and flag decor idea one day browsing Pinterest and knew I had to do it.  It was easy and I had nearly everything on hand already.  Those are the best projects, when you already have what you need.

You can use any sort of old ladder or build one of your own (like I did here with 1"x2"s).  Wrap your ladder in a flag or fabric, whatever decor matches the season or your decor theme.  This project really only took maybe 15 minutes.  It was super easy and super quick.

I share with you how it all came together in my video tutorial linked below.
I hope you are inspired!
