Even though outdoor/plant/garden projects were so last month*, I had to share this adorable little DIY planter idea. Mostly because it's so simple and awesome, but also because it could make a sweet Mother's Day gift, too!
Beckie's grandma and grandpa gave her an old rickety table that was set for the trash heap. Beckie stepped in and saved the table. The only problem was she didn't need a table.

I love the idea of incorporating found objects and elements from nature into your decor and this driftwood coat rack is a perfect (and playful) example of how to do just that!
This bathroom makeover is a perfect example of how to use neon in your decor: the style factor is out-of-this-world without being completely over-the-top!
