White Floral Summer Wreath

DIY Spindle Wind Chimes

Hi my beautiful friends! Today I'm sharing what I did with a bunch of spindles I found at an estate sale for $2. If you've visited the last couple of posts, you know that my hubby booked a last-minute Disney Cruise to celebrate the sale of our old house, which had been on the market since last August. (Definitely worthy of a celebration!) Well needless to say, we had a blast! These are just a few pics I had on my phone. We also visited the Kennedy Space Center the day before we left on … [Read more...]

Boys’ Bathroom Makeover

Beautiful friends, I am so excited to cross another room off my to-do list!! I have been slowly working on our boys' bathroom since we moved in back in August. Here is what it looked like before we moved in: It wasn't awful at all, so I kept pretty much everything except the weird side by side towel bars reflected in the mirror. Once again...paint to the rescue! Right?? I love you, paint. You make magic happen! :) I started with the vanity. I painted it at the same time … [Read more...]

Standing Outdoor Halloween Sign

Hey sweet Friends! Do ya'll get into Halloween? I know of a few of ya'll that do, but my guess is that most people do not.  Around here, we really have fun with it!

Mirror turned Chalkboard

Hello amazing friends! I have another makeover to share with ya'll from this pile of goodies I picked up last Saturday: It's this mirror I scored for $4.98: If you missed what I did with the baskets, see them HERE.

Don't you think? This wall is in our kitchen and I knew I … [Read more...]
