DIY Farmhouse Style Laundry Sign

Since we recently finished building a laundry room in our basement, I have been trying to find ways to make it pretty. I have already made this Chalkboard Wall Art to hold my lost socks and I wanted a sign on the opposite wall too. When I got the chance to participate in a Wooden Sign blogger challenge for Rust-Oleum, I knew I wanted to make something for the Laundry room.

Use Wood Accelerator to age a plain board and make a stenciled farmhouse laundry sign!

I picked up a mat to go in front of the washer and dryer that had a retro vibe, so I wanted to stay with that look.

Halloween Scarecrow Box - Popcorn Box Challenge

This is my second year participating in the Popcorn Box Challenge hosted by Laura Kelly Designs and Sponsored by World Market. I had so much fun last year, making a Jack Skellington Luminary that I jumped at the chance to be a part of it again. I had a couple of ideas that I was considering, but once I received my package, I decided to make a Scarecrow Popcorn Box with Candy Corn Popcorn.

 Use a popcorn box as cute packaging for a fun fall treat or to gift to a friend or neighbor!

I love Halloween! If you have been following me for a while, you will know I love to dress up for Halloween and have won several costume contests over the years. Last year, my company decided to not have a costume contest for Halloween, like they had for years. It bummed me out, so I decided the night before to make an easy DIY geeky "non-costume-costume" using a T-Shirt.

Tips on Painting a House + Giveaway

Since we moved into our home 8 years ago, we have changed pretty much everything on the outside of our house. We rebuilt the deck, re-painted the entry doors, changed the color of the shutters, and updated the landscaping. The only thing left was repainting the exterior of the house. The paint on the siding was in pretty good shape, with the exception of a few spots, but my husband hated the color. It was a boring tan that blended in with the roof and brick. Since we recently finished our major basement reno, we had a couple of free weekends to tackle this project.

What I am Wearing - Floral Bomber Jacket + TFF Linkup

Earlier this year, I started seeing bomber jackets all over my fashion feeds. I really liked the look, but was not sure how long the trend would last, so I waited to get one.

Today I am joining my friends Jill from Doused in Pink and Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom in the Thursday Fashion Files Link Up to show you 3 Ways to Style a Bomber Jacket. I’m excited to have you here and would love to have you link up one of your latest outfits at the bottom of this post.

Small Laundry Room Reveal and DIY Ideas

I am so excited to be showing you my completed laundry room! I have been using it for a while, but wanted to find a cabinet for the wall before I shared the final reveal.

What I am Wearing - Striped Dress and Velvet Sneakers

I am slowly transitioning my wardrobe to fall by adding a few new pieces, like this striped dress with crochet detail from PinkBlush and a pair of burgundy velvet sneakers. The best thing about this dress is you can change the look from casual to dressy by adding some tall boots and a scarf or jacket!

I am partnering with Oriental Trading to bring you ideas for a Spooky Halloween mantel.

Last week, I shared the Rustic Fall Mantel in my upstairs living room. Since we recently finished remodeling the basement, I decided that I would use the fireplace mantel downstairs to create a spooky display for Halloween.

Fall is here, so it is time to pull out everything pumpkin for my decor! Since we finished our basement renovation, I now have two mantels to decorate! I decided to use fall decor on the upstairs one and Halloween decor on the one in the basement. I picked out a set of three ceramic pumpkins from Oriental Trading and came up with three different ideas for decorating them.

3 Ways to Style a Tunic and Leggings

My go-to Fall outfit has to be a tunic and leggings because it is easy to throw on and super comfy. This combination does not have to be boring when you add layers and accessories. Today I am sharing 3 Ways to Style a Tunic and Leggings by mixing and matching pieces in my closet.

Create multiple looks from a basic tunic and leggings by adding layers and accessories!

Pieces such as jackets, cardigans, and scarfs are great options for adding some color and texture to a plain tunic and leggings. They also look great with flats, booties, heels, tall boots, or sneakers. You can still look put together in a tunic and leggings, while being comfortable!

How To Clean and Paint Ceramic Tile

This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small financial compensation if you make a purchase using this link

If you have been following along with my basement renovation saga, you will know that our original plan was to tear up all the tile and install vinyl flooring throughout the entire space. A few months ago, after tearing out the tile in the mudroom, we realized it was a pain in the butt to chip up the tile and mastic....and it created a huge mess. On top of that, we had to spend a few hundred dollars on concrete leveler to prep the area for the flooring. So, we started trying to come up with a Plan B and ultimately decided on Painting the Tile.


Hate your ceramic tile? You do not have to tear it out, just paint it! It's easy and cheap!

Our Basement Renovation - How to Remove Ceramic Tile

We are actually nearing the end of our basement renovation and I have recently revealed the finished bathroom, but I am taking a step back for a moment.

VBS on a Budget - Back to Basics

I have been working in VBS for over 16 years and have been the Director for at least 7 or 8 years (I lose track after a while!) and have tried about every idea out there for having a successful VBS. We have spent close to a thousand dollars on materials and decor, spent countless hours building huge set pieces, and tried all types of gimmicks to make VBS great for the kids. A few years ago, we decided to go back to the basics for VBS. Our goal was to focus on the message to the kids and spend as little as possible on decor, games, and crafts. Let me tell you, it is so much less stressful and the kids enjoy the VBS experience just as much!

Here is how we pulled off  our Geared Up for God VBS with just the basics.

What I am Wearing - Floppy Summer Hat

Even though summer is coming to an end, there is still time to catch some rays at the beach or by the pool. Even though I love being in the sun, as I get older I realize I need to protect my face more than ever. In addition to sunscreen, I have recently started wearing floppy sun hats. This spring, I added the Albany hat from Aventura to my collection and it has been a staple in my beach bag this summer.

Tips for installing Luxury Plank Vinyl Flooring

As part of our basement renovation, we decided to use Luxury Vinyl plank flooring throughout our new space. The reason we picked this is we could install it ourselves, it's relatively budget friendly, we can lay it over concrete floors that are not 100% level, and it can withstand moisture. Our goal is to use the basement bathroom for guests during the summer when the pool is open, which means wet feet coming in and out. We also have a dog, so we need something to withstand his nails and muddy paws.

What I am Wearing - White on White

Nothing says Summer like an all white outfit! Wearing white on white does not have to be a hard look to pull off. I know if you have small children then white can be a hard color to wear due to having little, dirty hands around. I am even hesitant at times, because I am clumsy and afraid of spills.  Wearing all white with a pop of color is a great Summer look to try on occasion.
