    DIY Pretend Makeup for Kids

    August 26, 2019

    Don’t ask me how it happened. I’ve never been the girl who loved wearing dresses, or styled her hair, or did her make-up every day. I’m very much a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl. Always have been. Always will be. But these girls of mine? Total girly girls! Emma loves anything pink and sparkly. Skirts…

  • Operation Clubhouse {DIY Playhouse with Slide}

    June 11, 2019

    I have fond memories of countless hours of my childhood spent playing outdoors. Riding bikes all over the neighborhood. Scrambling through the brush and the weeds exploring and imagining.

  • Coral Painted Dresser

    July 21, 2014

    I’m gonna let you in on a not so little secret. I’m cheap. That’s a large part of why I DIY. Why buy it (or pay someone to do it), when I can make/do it myself for less. I work hard for my money, so I have a hard time justifying spending a large amount…

  • So, I Painted My Doors Black

    July 8, 2014

    Have you ever had one of those ideas that everyone else thought was crazy? You know, something like – “I’m gonna paint the dresser bright yellow and put it into the living room” “Can I paint the office ‘Teal’?” “I’m makeΒ felt taxidermy heads for the nursery” “I think I’m going to paint a herringbone pattern…
