Paper Roll Message Board

We needed some sort of message board in our kitchen, so I borrowed this idea from restaurant images I’ve seen lately. I wanted a fun solution that would allow for friends to draw at parties, for us to leave messages for each other, and something that wouldn’t just look ordinary. I started by staining and then finishing each of the wood pieces with gray paint to create a whitewashed look. This is completely optional, but it fits well with our style. Supplies: Wood …read more

Princess Diana Inspired Bouquet

Today has been really crazy. I’ll spare you the details, but I had to whip this together very quickly. I guess that’s why I love it. I already had everything needed to complete this, with the exception of the white roses. I’m dabbling in gardening, but we’re not exactly popping out huge gorgeous roses. White roses were Diana’s favorite flower. I have to agree. I love white roses, and all white flowers basically. To make this, I used a blue …read more

Create a Huge Gallery Wall

I’ve been dying to put together a huge gallery wall for my office. When we moved, I realized that I had a ton of random wall art that didn’t really work well at the new house. I created this huge gallery wall very inexpensively by simply painting all of the mismatched frames and mats. It was so gratifying to create this beautiful display for our sentimental items using things just waiting to be thrown away. This whole undertaking started with …read more
