I know not everyone goes overboard with their holiday decorating… BUT for those of you who do, I have learned a few tricks over the years to help me save time and my walls. Here’s a list of 9 things that help me survive this time of the year.
Happy OCTOBER!! I thought I would re-share this cute printable from Sara (sincerely, sara d.) to help kick off the month. I have to admit to you (because my husband laughed when he saw this print laying on our counter), that fall is definitely not my favorite season. As beautiful as it is, fall causes […]
I am always on the lookout for LARGE artwork. I love bigger pieces that can fill a space…partly because I’m lazy! 😉 If I only have to find one thing, instead of 5 or 7 (work in odd numbers) it’s easier.
I may have a (small) obsession with chalkboards. I have them scattered throughout my home. I love chalkboards because they make a big impact with little cost, and they work with different decor styles. Chalkboards can be painted on anything from a wall to a fridge. And once you start painting chalkboards, they do become […]
Ok, I have another really fun and INEXPENSIVE piece of “artwork” for you! I say artwork loosely, because it’s really a cork board. I’m using it more as artwork now but eventually I think it will move into my office. Now when I say inexpensive, it was around $12 for the 36″x36″ board…that’s huge for […]
Artwork can be so expensive, especially larger pieces…but there is always a way to get around it. You can make your own from a large piece of scrap wood, architectural salvage or GIFT BAGS! Yes, a gift bag can make the perfect piece of wall art. 😉 Have you been down the gift packaging aisle […]
For me it seems that some of the smallest and easiest projects get pushed to the side. Bigger projects sometimes take center stage because they are right in my face all the time, but what I’ve learned over the years (and forgotten many times) is that I SHOULD be completing smaller more manageable projects in-between. […]
The other day I was browsing West Elm’s website and I came across these gorgeous mirrors! They are beautiful but I can’t necessarily justify spending that much money on ANOTHER mirror, at the moment. The concept is easy enough to recreate so I decided to make my own version for a fraction of the cost!
Back in high school my art teacher always claimed I had a “crooked eye”. It’s all about perception, right?!? 😉 Well I might not be an authority on what is exactly straight but I can definitely tell when a picture is crooked on a wall…and BOY does it bother me!! I have found a super […]
My bathroom saga continues and today it is with the back wall. All good things, all good things…(done in an Olaf voice. We have seen that movie one too many times!! 😉 ) ANYWAY, it’s coming along and I’m VERY close to finishing it! I have had some issues with the lighting for above the […]
