I have always loved decorating for holidays year-round. My mom used to have a cute little shelf in our kitchen, and with each holiday she had sweet little hand-painted wood decor pieces to display on the shelf. A little Christmas tree at Christmas time, a painted egg for Easter, a turkey for Thanksgiving, and so on. For the months of June and July I remember setting her sweet little American Flag on the shelf. It was such a nice little reminder of the upcoming holiday, and it kept my brother and I excited about each new season.
Today I’ve got a super quick and easy craft to show you! I’m always amazed at how satisfying it is to create decor with very little time and money. This DIY Patriotic wreath is so easy and simple to make, and you literally only need two materials! Whaaat? No, it’s not too good to be true 😉
It’s here! It is the big reveal day for my little girl’s modern farmhouse bedroom and I’m super excited to show you how it turned out! After 6 weeks of preparation, planning, dreaming, shopping, and lots of DIY projects – her bedroom is finished. I’m loving how everything came together, and she’s pretty smitten with it too! When she first walked in she genuinely said “Wow, I love it! It’s soo beautiful. Thanks Mommy!” Um .. heart melted 🙂 Participating in the One Room Challenge with Calling It Home this spring has been so fun. I’ll definitely be joining in again in the near future!
This is week 5 of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home. Taking on this 6 week challenge has been so much fun and definitely challenging! Things are getting really real – as in there is only 1 week left until the reveal! It is time to wrap up all of my projects and start putting everything into place. I am so excited to finish this space and give my daughter her own “big girl” room. We just celebrated her 3rd birthday so it is perfect timing for this room reveal!
It’s no secret that I’m a thrifty gal who loves an awesome deal. I love to scour thrift stores for treasures, browse discount stores, and find freebies from friends and neighbors – like this awesomely free dresser! When we had a friend offer us a free twin bed (with a practically brand new box spring and mattress!) I was super excited. My husband Nic can vouch for my unashamed giddiness over scoring freebies. What can I say – I love a great deal!
It is week 4 of this Spring’s One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home, and I have some updates for how my daughter’s Modern Farmhouse Bedroom is coming along. It’s been a fun adventure so far and I am looking forward to wrapping up the last few projects during these last 2 weeks. I am feeling super excited and also a little nervous! As it is my first time around I’m sure that is normal … right? 😉
