Who says garland is only for Christmas? Lately I’ve felt like sprucing up a few spots in my home and decided a felt garland would do just that. So I made this super easy braided felt garland. It’s quick, easy, versatile, and can fit any home. It also would be a great project for a beginner sewer – it’s all straight lines but doesn’t need to be perfect to still look good!
I grew up watching Trading Spaces. My mom and I would tune in every week to see what sort of crazy decorating would happen. Would they glue more straw on someone’s wall? What about flowers on every inch of a bathroom? Or maybe just some sand instead of real flooring? But one thing that was consistent was that every designer hated ceiling fans. And my mom would always ask how anyone could live without one. Well, I definitely am on team ceiling fan. Especially in a bedroom. But when we were picking one out for our master, I wanted something…unique. So I made a piece to spice ours up. An Anthropologie inspired ceiling fan update.
Well, it’s October so it’s officially pumpkin everything season. I actually started adding pumpkin in my life a few weeks ago. A big batch of pumpkin muffins was the perfect fuel to makeover these dollar store pumpkins!
So what if it’s been 80 degrees this week and feels more like July than September? I’ve got all things fall on my mind and am dressing my house to represent that. Starting with our front door. I made this easy fall leaf wreath and even made my own DIY coffee stain for the wood sign. And this wreath will transition through all the fall events – read on to see how!
Do you have a room in your house that is full of mismatched furniture? Our guest room has been a room of hand-me-down furniture. It’s all in great condition but between the wood tones on the floor, the dressers, and the headboard, it was too much variation for me! We have matching twin beds to the dressers so we don’t want to paint over them. And the floor isn’t going to change anytime soon, so updating the headboard was the next best thing! Here is how I made a DIY headboard slipcover.
I love when the opportunity comes up to make something that I can’t find in stores. This is exactly what happened when I decided I wanted an ottoman for a reading nook in my office. I had an old chair that rocked and swiveled and didn’t look like a nursery chair. But it’s old, like 30+ years old, and that made it short. Any cute ottoman found at Target or Home Goods would have my knees higher than my chest and that just seemed a tad uncomfortable. I’ve always looked longingly at the different furniture legs at Home Depot and I knew just the project I’d use them for; my own DIY ottoman.
