It’s no secret that I love a great budget-friendly, time-saving DIY home decor project. If I see a piece of art that I really want in our home and know that I can make it myself for less money and a little time – I usually try it. This lead to my latest creation. I used a super simple method to make a personalized hand-lettered canvas that turned out beautifully!
It is also week 2 of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home and I have updates on what I have been working on for my modern farmhouse girl’s room makeover. I’ve purchased a few items for my daughter’s room and I’m so excited about how everything is coming together so far. If you follow me on Instagram you will be able to see some sneak peeks of my progress. You’ll definitely want to stick around for the next few weeks to see the reveal!
Easter is quickly approaching and I am so happy that Spring has arrived! It is so refreshing to see bright beautiful flowers in bloom. The nice weather gives me a spring in my step and I love to admire the signs of new life. This year I created an Easter banner to give us a reminder of why we celebrate Easter.
We recently moved my 2 year old daughter into her own room. Sharing a room with her older sister was not working how we hoped it would. We went through many nights of her climbing out of her crib, waking her older sister, resulting in both of them crying and getting upset. It was not a good fit for this stage of life but luckily we had an office that we could convert into a bedroom for her. This meant that we had to do some time-consuming tasks like packing, moving furniture, and cleaning – but it also meant that I got to re-decorate a room just for her. There is a bright side to everything, right?
While brainstorming decorating ideas and perusing Pinterest, I found an idea for a DIY wall hanging. I have been seeing these sweet wall hangings everywhere lately and l love the soft texture that they bring to a room. When I found out how easy and budget-friendly this project was I couldn’t wait to get started! I got together with a couple of friends and we had a craft night while working on wall hangings for our homes. Warning: after you make one of these and see how simple and easy it is, you’ll want to make one for every room in your house!
I have always admired the romantic look and feel of a canopy. As a little girl I imagined that princesses must have large beds with sheer canopies draped over the sides. I must admit that after I moved into my first apartment in college I added some sheer curtains that hung around my bed to create a “canopy” feel to my room. I absolutely loved it – and it did make me feel a little like a princess. And no, there aren’t any photos to document this canopy-phase of my college years (phew).
While cleaning my office recently I found a clipboard that was looking pretty sad and in need of some chalkboard paint. I feel like chalkboard paint can help re-purpose so many things! I’ve added it to wood slices, ornaments, trays, and now a clipboard to give it a new life.
