Modern Geometric Planter

featured

I have partnered with 3M DIY  to create this project. I have been compensated for my time and efforts but the ideas and opinions are all mine! Remember how when I was in NYC I was challenged by 3M to find something to serve as my inspiration for a DIY project? I chose the picture I took of the relief stone detail on the side of a building in Soho (to see picture see my first post). I had a million ideas of what I could do! Molding on a wall, a giant stencil painted on a rug, and so many others. But what I ultimately decided to do was build a planter and add the relief detail to the sides. I combined my love of plants and my obsession with the pattern to create this fun … {READ MORE}

Card Catalog Side Table

featured glidden image_edited-1

I worked with Glidden Paint for this fun project. I was compensated for my time working on this project but the ideas, tips, and thoughts are all mine! Remember when I was debating on which color to paint the metal card catalogs I had in my garage? I finally decided on NAVY! Rich Navy from Glidden Paint to be exact :) And I could not be more happy with the result. If I could marry a piece of furniture, this guy and I would be engaged right now.     In case you missed the last post, this is how they started out.   I painted them and built a base for them. It is now the perfect bedside table for my future new bedroom.   Let's break down how … {READ MORE}

Team Depot in Salt Lake City!

Valor House SLC_edited-1

This is a sponsored post for The Home Depot Foundation who I love dearly. Every thought, opinion, and experience is all mine. I have traveled around to different states to participate in Home Depot service projects but this time I got to help out in my home state... Utah! Last year the Valor House was built. It is a housing unit for Vets who are homeless are in danger of becoming homeless. They help the Vets with any needs they may have and help them get back on their feet so they can be self reliant again. Before we got to work on the new outdoor area, we were able to listen to one veteran's story.   After wiping a few tears away, we got right to work. They had built the … {READ MORE}

Kitchen Floating Shelves

featured shelves image

I have partnered with P&G and Home Depot to bring you this project :) When we first moved in I put a floating shelf on one side of the window where the previous owners had chosen not to add a cabinet.   I decided one day to take down our random, loney cabinet that is in our kitchen. I thought it would look better with floating shelves on each side of the window. The cabinet blocked the light and was bulky. So after giving it some thought I took the plunge!     Right now it has candlesticks and herbs, but I am still playing around with what will be stored here. It might be bowls and glasses.     Have you seen those cute … {READ MORE}

How To Build A Simple Entryway Table

featured image fall table

I am excited to be partnering with 3M DIY  to share a tutorial on how to make a simple table. I needed an entryway table (for reasons I will disclose later!). I shopped around at thrift stores, online yard sales, and at regular retail stores. I couldn't find a simple table and I couldn't find one for less than $50. I had a lot going on and wasn't sure I wanted to tackle building one but then I realized I could use the same basic ideas as my simple side table and just adjust the measurements. I already had some of the wood and so I went for it!     Here is what you will need..... Supplies:3M™ Wood Filler , 3M™ Advanced Abrasives, 3M™ Wood Adhesive, brad nailer, … {READ MORE}

October Linky Party 2014

linky featured

I LOVE October! The only bad thing about it is that it means winter is coming. But other than that you can't beat the weather, the food, and the beautiful fall leaves on the mountains, and my birthday.... :) I am now the big 3-5. Hello mid-thirties! I spent the day mowing the lawn, trimming trees, and fixing the chicken pen's fence. But don't feel sorry for me. When my husband asked what I wanted for my birthday I said I wanted to be really productive, be with my family, and have a treat at the end of the day. All three happened and the weather was divine. Here is what I have been up to the last month in case you missed any of it. September was my busiest/craziest month this … {READ MORE}

Book Review and Giveaway!

book1

I sat by my blogging friend Karah at Haven one day at lunch and we chatted about her book that was going to be coming out soon. She told me what a labor of love it was. And some of what she said helped me make up my mind about finally writing my own book. I loved when her book actually came in the mail! I was so proud of her. The projects are so fun and I think it would make a great gift for the DIYer in your life, or for yourself! I am happy to give you a sneak peek of Karah's book today and to be able to give a copy away! She did such a fabulous job!

BHG Makeover Challenge….Revealed!

BHG challenge

I am SUPER excited because today I can finally share the challenge with you that I did with Better Homes And Gardens while  in New York! I just got the links to the video clips and watched them for the first time.  You can see it better in the video, but the fern botanical print that I used came from My friend Karen at The Graphics Fairy   We were each given a very small space with the same desk and the same chair.   Eddies Ross was the Host :) And we couldn't use nails or screws! Here are our work stations: We had $200 and 45 minutes to shop. Then we had 5 hours over the course of two days to work on the space. Since the challenge was to … {READ MORE}

How To Pick A Paint Color For Furniture

featured glidden

I am working with Glidden Paint on a fun project. I was compensated for my time working on this project but the ideas, tips, and thoughts are all mine! Painting furniture and painting walls are really quite similar when it comes to the process of choosing the color. For most people it is a daunting chore. We tend to second guess ourselves and feel intimidated. And we panic when it doesn't look like what we wanted when it goes on. I have these fun metal card catalogs I got from my mom a long time ago. They have been collecting dust in my garage. I almost forgot I even had them. While I was in NYC last week my husband cleaned out the garage and unearthed them. So naturally I HAD to give … {READ MORE}
