4th of July is my favorite holiday, and it's the perfect time of year to host a party with friends, whether you're indoors or outdoors. What does every party need? A photo backdrop! Make a simple patriotic ribbon photo backdrop that looks like an American flag to celebrate the 4th of July and take memorable photos!
If you love to go antiquing as much as I do, then you've no doubt struggled with the conundrum of how to incorporate that beautiful new turn-of-the-century table into your mostly-modern living room. Have no fear, my friends, because today we're sharing some easy tips and tricks that will have you blending furniture from different eras in no time.
Believe it or not, I use to be a professional plant killer. Turns out, with a little love and care, keeping plants alive is really not that hard! You just need to know a few key tips. So today I'm sharing 10 low light houseplants (I actually own all of these) that are tough to kill (because I haven't killed them yet!). So, if you want to introduce a few plants into your home, but you're not sure you can keep them green, here are some you might want to look into!
Get ready, gang, because this is a fast one! I love having art all throughout my house, but I don't love buying frames. They're so expensive. I don't own any rare art, so it seems silly to buy frames that cost more than the original artwork itself. I like the trending, vintage-y look of a scroll frame, but enjoy the freedom of being able to switch out art pieces, like with a traditional frame. So why not both? With a bit of magnetic tape and some baseboard trim, this DIY hanging poster frame is not only cheap, but also super fast to make, and ridiculously simple.
I've been crafting for a fairly long time (I won't say how long because I don't want to date myself). In all my years of making stuff I can't believe it took me this long to discover the embroidery tool I'm using to create this easy wall art. I first stumbled across this technique on social media. Someone had posted a "Work in Progress" video, and they were causally punching away at some fabric, creating embroidered lines at breakneck speed. After some internet searching, I was able to locate what is currently my favorite tool: Everyone, meet the punch needle.
See that round thing staring at you? That's the amputated heart of an old walnut tree that was in my backyard. It makes me sad to think about it, but two summers ago, we had to have this beauty cut down, even though it was healthy, because it was hanging dangerously over a neighbor's garage. Here's what it looks like when you chop up a perfectly good walnut tree:
Small space living is not ideal, but I make it work thanks to the abundance of helpers out there that 1) support my slight hoarding habits and 2) keep my house somewhat organized. I have a small rental kitchen, and despite the fact that I have way too much stuff (and I own it!), I stay extremely organized and you can too! These 15 products are perfect for organizing your kitchen cabinets, so no matter how much or how little space you have, you experience Zen at home.
Mother's Day is just around the corner (it's this Sunday - don't forget!). If you're anything like me, the holiday has crept up on you. There are so many different things to celebrate about our mamas (and grandmothers, spouses, and mother-figures), but what it ultimately comes down to is telling her you're thankful for her. Whether that means making her breakfast, bringing her flowers, or sending her a note in the mail, these (free!) Mother's Day printables can help you get the job done.
A new concrete garage slab is a thing of beauty. But due to the porous nature of concrete, it doesn't take long before tough stains (like oil spills) make their way into any garage floor. While you might not mind a few stains, over time, an unprotected cement floor system becomes more vulnerable to damage. An epoxy garage floor coating is a great way to ensure your garage floor's durability, and make the space feel cleaner and more inviting.
We went through the process of painting a garage floor with DRYLOK® E1 1-Part Epoxy Floor Paint, so we could learn, firsthand, how it works, and what to expect. Here's everything you need to know.
Organization is not my strong suit. Of course, I enjoy being organized, but somehow I never quite get there. So, I thought a new calendar might help to keep my schedule in order. I wanted to make one that I could reuse each month to keep track of my projects and appointments, so I decided to make a perpetual chalkboard version. And then? I stumbled upon the miracle of clear chalkboard paint... and the rest is, well, my own DIY perpetual...
