Dresser Makeover – French Salon Style

Dresser Makeover – French Salon Style

I’m finally back to blogging again!  This is a project that’s been done, but was never photographed.  I’m re-learning how to take pictures in my new house with new lighting.  Not all times of day are good for pictures. My mom and dad gave me this dresser from their house.  It was in my bedroom when […]

DIY Christmas Card Hanger

I am really excited about this last minute project I put together!  I hadn’t even thought about putting anything on this wall yet, but I got thinking about Christmas cards coming in the mail soon.  I wanted to have a place to put them that was pretty. I had these frames left over from Camden’s […]

Decorating the New Nest for Christmas

I love decorating for Christmas!  I always do everything different than the previous year, but I don’t spend money most years.  I just get creative and use what I already have laying around.  If you haven’t noticed, that is the theme around here.  Also, having little kiddos means you have mini decorators who go behind […]

Homemade Christmas

Homemade Christmas

If you are on Pinterest, I know you are addicted to it like I am. In my defense, I really have made a lot of recipes my family likes and have completed a lot of projects around my house that are Pinterest inspired including making my own dishwasher and laundry detergent. More on that later. […]

Wall Update

Wall Update

This is the first project I’m posting…finally. I’m so ready for spring, and so I thought I’d update the wall that you first see as you enter our house. I already moved stuff around a couple of weeks ago and wasn’t happy with it. In my mind I was picturing white dishes, a bit of […]
