I have been searching high and low for the Ikea Malm dressers on Craigslist. I wanted dressers to use for nightstands in our bedroom so that we had more storage. I had previously bought these amazing dressers on craigslist but then discovered they are Original Conant Ball Stamped Dressers. I wanted to paint them but when I found out what they were I knew it would be a huge sin if I touched them. I was back to the drawing board and I liked the idea of making over the Ikea Malm dressers because I liked their size and had seen lots of hacks online. My inspiration for this Ikea Malm hack was from one of my favorite bloggers, Amy from Homey oh my! I originally wanted to replicate it with the same colors and detail but I decided to add a few of my own touches to the project.Read More
Last year we hosted Easter at our house and I wanted to do a few things to make the house festive. We were still living in our rented townhome and lots of things were still packed away. I didn’t have too many Easter decorations so I thought that I would make some of my own. I had seen some banners on Etsy that I absolutely loved but I knew that I could make it myself!Read More
So this isn’t the first time this has been done and it has been seen around Pinterest. I originally saw this post by Arte & Manha’s blog post. I wanted to give it a try and I figured why not blog about it! I wanted to make my own decorative balls to put into a vase. I used all of my corks, which were in one of my vases, to decorate some other balls. Apparently, I’m really into decorating styrofoam balls lately. Haha! Check out my previous post, on Cork Decor. I wanted to take a stab at some tacky decor this time!Read More
Hi everyone! I apologize for being MIA the past week. I have been in Colorado visiting some friends and also rehearsing with my new quartet, Delilah! I belong to an organization called Sweet Adelines International. I would love to share with you a little bit about my hobby and passion for Barbershop music!
First off, my mom is the reason I am doing this blog. As I grew up I watched my mom refurbish furniture, decorate her home and paint anything and everything! She was the one who taught me the ins and outs of DIY. She’s amazing at what she does and inspires me through every project I do!
