Installing a Farmhouse Sink

Installing a Farmhouse Sink We recently remodeled our kitchen and installed BLANCO’S IKON 33 APRON sink in white. If you’re not familiar with my blog, we recently finished our DIY kitchen remodel.  You can follow that process from the very beginning by going here. This was our sink before, and the […]

DIY Kitchen Remodel and RTA Cabinets

DIY KITCHEN REMODEL AND RTA CABINETS We used RTA (ready-to-assemble) cabinets in our DIY kitchen remodel.  RTA cabinets can provide a 50% savings from big-box store cabinets and turnaround is fairly quick – usually within two weeks! Oh my goodness.  We are DONE with our DIY kitchen remodel and could […]

Easy DIY Hoop Christmas Wreath

When do you start thinking about Christmas decor? Once the weather cools off, I start listening to Christmas music and begin thinking about holiday decor! Today I am sharing a REALLY simple DIY Christmas wreath tutorial that does not require much time (or money) but looks beautiful on your door […]

DIY Hot Cocoa Bar

  One day (when I grow up), I’ll start drinking coffee. Until then, I’ll keep drinking hot chocolate. In fact, my entire family loves hot chocolate, so I created a little hot cocoa beverage station for us to enjoy! I partnered with Hobby Lobby on this hot cocoa bar and […]

Temporary Wallpaper: Starched Fabric

I have used temporary wallpaper (starched fabric) several times throughout our home, and it works great for renters or those of us with commitment issues. I shared this tutorial over a year ago on Remodelaholic, and I decided to share it here as well.  Although great for anyone, this tutorial is […]

DIY Open Shelving

Our kitchen nook needed a little something, so I added elegant DIY open shelving.  It is an easy project – I did this solo one morning! There is a large empty wall in the space, and I have struggled with decorating it since we first moved it.  I tried stenciling it […]
