• Not Your Typical Ceiling Fan

    How do you know when it’s time to update your ceiling fans? I made a TikTok video asking this question and one of the responses was “when it stopped working.” When it stops working, you know it’s time! My husband and I knew it was time to update our ceiling fans because we’ve lived in our home over 15 years! These fans are OLD. First I want to tell you something about my husband, Darren. He has been working from home since March 2020 due to the pandemic. I thought I would die when that happened—him working in the house all day, wandering around and in my business occasionally. Anyone…

  • Revealing My DREAM Wall with DuraDecor

    After peeling and sticking lots of DuraDecor vinyl planks to the wall, the bonus/media room is COMPLETE! It really is the dream accent wall I was hoping it would be, and I could not be happier with the final result! Here are the things that I did to update this space: Added DuraDecor Peel and Stick Vinyl in Iced Barn (available exclusively at The Home Depot ) Painted the walls Replaced the old shutters with blackout curtains Replaced the 15-year-old ceiling fan Added a new couch BEFORE PHOTOS FINAL REVEAL PHOTOS The hardest part was measuring the wall and planning it out beforehand. After that, it was so easy to…

  • Drab to FAB with DuraDecor

    We have lived in our home for 15 years and there’s one room we have never changed. . . our bonus/media room. I’m talking never painted it or anything. It is still the original yellow color from when we moved into the home. Time for some changes! I am taking the wall in this room from drab to fab using Peel and Stick Vinyl Planks from DuraDecor! This room is mainly used by my husband, who spends time playing video games and watching his favorite TV shows. Occasionally, we will have family over to watch a movie. The Plan Here are the things that I plan to do to update…

  • DIY Vintage Book Pumpkins

    Make Fall pumpkins out of ordinary books or vintage books…..OH YES YOU CAN!!! HERE’S HOW TO DO IT! Start by finding a book that you don’t use or want. It doesn’t matter what it looks like because you are going to take the cover off and only use the inside pages of the book. Cut off right top pages of book to form shape of pumpkin. Note: you will only be able to cut several pages at a time with scissors. Then do the same thing to the bottom right side pages of book doing several pages at a time. Keep this up until all pages have been cut and…

  • Pantry Makeover

    My pantry has been in need of a reorganization for a while. Let’s just say it has been a hot mess for way too long now. My daughter was with us this past week and she decided to work on our pantry! Score!! We sat down together and worked on a plan for things that I needed for the pantry such as new containers, baskets, and other bins that we would need for good organization. She got on the computer and found some good options on Amazon and they arrived in just a few days! I can’t believe we are actually going to get this pantry done! So the next…

  • $5 Find Transformation! with Rust-Oleum

    I’m at it again with another Rust-Oleum makeover! This time, it’s with a yard sale find from a few weeks ago. I’m finally posting everything and getting caught up! I found this wire basket thing at a yard sale and knew I could do something with it, but I wasn’t sure exactly what. It’s a pretty long piece. At first, I thought about hanging it on a wall to organize plants. Then, I thought about turning it into a laundry organizer. I had so many ideas rolling around in my head! And then I thought about turning it into table. My daughter suggested using hairpin legs for the table! What’s…

  • Rust-Oleum Bicycle Makeover!

    As Haven conference is coming up, I’ve been SO busy with fun projects! One of them is a Rust-Oleum spray paint challenge. The spray paint challenge is to transform and refresh a furniture or decor piece! Here is my transformation: We’ve had this bike for years (got it from my niece), and we used to ride it around! But then it sat on the side of the house. And it sat. And it sat. Until FINALLY I decided to transform it. I used Rust-Oleum’s 2020 Coral color because it popped and reminded me of summer! I love this 2020 color line and could’ve gone with any of the choices honestly.…

  • Hyped up for HAVEN Conference!

    In a few weeks, I’ll be attending my first HAVEN CONFERENCE! Originally, I was meant to fly to Atlanta, Georgia, and meet up with home decor enthusiasts and influencers, but now we get the chance to meet virtually and learn together! I’m actually excited to learn from the comfort of my home. I get to stay safe and still learn at this conference! This year the conference will be handled by ZOOM. The Haven administrators have been so amazing to offer ZOOM help to those who need it. They have been performing ZOOM practice calls periodically throughout the past few weeks for people to participate in and it has been…

  • Good Housekeeping Feature!

    I could not let April slip by without thanking Good Housekeeping for our Feature in the Good Stuff this month. What a thrill it was to open and see our picture on the pages of this publication! I may or may not have gone out and bought a few issues for every room in my home but who’s to say? The feature is located on the third page and it’s called The Good Stuff. It’s a DIY simple floral arrangement of tulips placed in thrifted milk glass vases. I have been collecting milk glass for years. I find milk glass from various places such as yard sales, thrift shops and…
