With Springtime, comes sprucing up your home and you can’t forget Spring cleaning {dun, dun, dun}. It helps when you have a … [Read more...]

Multi-Functioning Coffee Table {Kid’s Art Supply Storage AND Flower Planter in one!}


  Sometimes it’s hard to create that balance between a chaotic house and a clean house, and every single day I found myself pulling out the art supplies for my daughter Londyn. She loves to draw, and I decided that instead of putting away the art supplies multiple times a week, we would make a permanent table in the family room for her crayons and colored pencils. The great thing about the table though is that the … [Read more...]

New Gallery wall is complete! {After I convinced my hubby it was necessary}


  Does your husband hate me? It’s ok, you can be honest. I’ve heard it dozens of times, “Would you quit changing your house? Now my wife thinks we need to change OURS!” Although Dan is mostly supportive of my crazy ideas, last time I went to IKEA with him, I started arranging frames on the ground at the store. Dan’s reaction? “What are these frames for? What wall do we even have left to decorate!?!” I didn’t … [Read more...]

We moved our Wallbed upstairs!


One of our favorite projects of all time is our Wilding Wallbed. We live in a place that people love to visit, and we LOVE visitors. So, in order to accommodate as many people in our home as possible, the perfect solution was to get a Wallbed! We LOVE it! The murphy bed was originally in our son Creed’s nursery for awhile, but now that Creedy is old enough to be upstairs with his big brother, we converted his room back … [Read more...]

Master Bedroom Progress


First of all, thank you for your sweet comments about my “Rutty Rut Rut” post. Several of your comments had me in tears. I feel so much better now that I’ve shared what happened. I feel like you all “have my back.” I definitely owe you all a Diet Coke after all that. After all, you know my deepest and darkest now, so we are bffs. Oh wait, I’m not drinking Diet Coke right now, hmmmm, maybe we could get together in a month … [Read more...]

I just wanted to be upfront about that in case someone has a problem with an order. I’m not affiliated with RugsUSA in anyway, but I love their 80% off sale so … [Read more...]

Colorful Laundry Room Makeover

Laundry Room ideas for kids!

I’m about to show you a room that I never intended to. My horrible, cluttered laundry room is a space that I keep the door shut. I’m not proud of it. In fact, most of the time it stinks in there like sour towels. Can you relate? I’m not the perfect housewife. In fact, I have been known to forget about a load of laundry in the washer for a few DAYS, yes days. In fact, there are times when I restart the sour load of laundry … [Read more...]
