You may have noticed the wooden lamp in my stepsons’ room in the photos I shared from their room makeover.
My husband and I found it at Goodwill a LONG time ago and swore we would give it a makeover. Well, that never happened. However, we needed it because none of the bedrooms in our apartment have overhead lighting and it provides the only lighting in the room.

You know those beautiful floral arrangements you see in model homes and high-end stores? Well, the closest I’d ever come to making one of them was trimming the stems on some monochromatic mums and placing them in a vase on my table. Pretty? Yes. Impressive? I think not.

In general, I stay far away from traditional Christmas decor. You’re not going to find red, green and gold with images of Santa and elves at our house.

Things aren’t like they used to be. Once upon a time, we used to get tons of Christmas card from friends and family members. Today, we get a handful of cards from a handful of people every year.

With this awesome project, you can display your favorite holiday cards and even photo cards featuring your own family. And the best part? It’s super simple. :: READ THE FULL POST
I’m not going to lie. Lately, doing projects around the house has been the last thing on my mind — particularly if said project is at all time consuming. Enter Walmart‘s Projects Made Simple series. If you’ve never heard of it, the name is a very good descriptor. Projects Made Simple is a series of DIY projects that come with video instructions and step-by-step guidelines for getting them completed. Included are small projects like painting an accent wall and installing a towel bar, and larger projects like staining a deck. This week, I chose to tackle a smaller project in my daughter’s room: I turned a section of wall in her room into a chalkboard! :: READ THE FULL POST
