Black and Gold Girls Bedroom

I am so excited to share with you my girls new bedroom. I’ve redone my girls room a few times and I’ve had a hard time nailing down a design that both of my girls like and that I like. I’ve been loving black and white lately and I always love a touch of gold.

I wanted to do something bold and exciting on the wall behind their beds so I really had to brainstorm to come up with something awesome.. I ended up deciding on a black wall with a gold floral design. I’ll be sharing the tutorial soon. Isn’t that fun?

The nightstand are from Ikea and I did the Ikea Hack just like Mallory did HERE. They are simple, clean, cheap and so easy to do.  005

I am in love with gold and if you have ever been on Classy Clutter then you know that already! I made these headboards and I am so exciting about them. I used MDF and a jig saw and I free handed the shape. I only had to create one side and just copied it on the other side. I used butcher paper and it was a ton of trial and error to get the right shape and I love it.  008

These clip on lights are from Land of Nod and TOTALLY worth the money I thought that I could DIY it but the real thing is just the BEST. 016 006 002 012 003 007

The Bedding and the sheet set are from Pottery Barn Teen, you can find it here. The sheets are my favorite, you can find them here. The cute black and white striped pillow is from HomeGoods! HomeGoods is one of my favorite places in the world. I really do get soooooo happy when I am there. I don’t think that I have a room in my house with out stuff from HomeGoods in it.  013

DIY Nesting Coffee Tables – Ikea Hack

Coffee Table 2

Hi friends! I’m super excited to share with you this super easy, total overhaul of these nesting coffee tables. It was so easy, just spray paint and bam! In just 3 easy steps, you can take these cute little tables from looking like a run of the mill, boring coffee table to a total glam showstopper! Let’s do this!

Supplies: (Click affiliate links to purchase items for this project)

Vittsjo Nesting Tables

Gold Spray Paint

White Spray Paint

I ordered my Ikea tables because my closest Ikea is about an hour and a half away and let’s face it, I did not wanna load up my 4 kiddos for a road trip when Ikea or Amazon will deliver it right to my door. Yep, you can get it on Amazon people!

Coffee Tables assembled

I got it home and assembled it. Ikea is notorious for ridiculous assembly sessions but this was a breeze. For reals. Next,I took my absolute favorite spray paint on the planet and sprayed the whole thing with a few even coats. Make sure to spray lightly and let it dry thoroughly in between each coat. It will be worth the wait, annoying as it is to wait, I promise.

Rustoleum Gold

Now, I totally could’ve left it like this. Gorgeous right? BUT it looked a little dark for me. I knew I wanted something lighter on the bottom. I toyed with the idea of stenciling, wood grain contact paper, replacing it with a mirror, etc but ultimately decided I wanted white. Thanks to Savannah for helping me via FaceTime. We design best that way. ;)

Coffee Table Painted

I used Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover 2x in White Satin on the bottom piece. I probably should’ve used a primer because it took a few more coats than I would have liked but ended up working just fine. Then, I let the whole thing dry and that was it!  Seriously, so easy!!! I think it looks way more expensive and stylish!

Love Grows Wild Sign

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this sign. No joke I would have it up all year round. One thing that I love so much about this decor from my Valentine party is that it can be used for different events like a garden party, wedding, and list goes on and on. I thought of the idea of having a focal point and a theme of the party in one would be fun and this sign is what I came up with. I wanted the sign to have great texture and I think I was able to accomplish that.

To start the base of the board is just a piece of plywood that I had the guys at Home Depot cut down to a 4 x 6 feet sheet and then I painted it solid black so that the words would really pop.

009

The L-O-V-E letters are from the very talented Heidi Swapp. The letters are from Michaels. They were $12.99 each and they are 100% perfection! Each letter is individual lit by its own set of battery powered lights. I simply sprayed the letters with Krylon Gloss Watermelon spray paint.

010

Grows Letters

To do the G-R-O-W-S letters I purchased the wooden letters at Joann’s. I used the Krylon Spray Paint in this green color and then I used the 3M Spray Adhesive and I added moss onto the letters. I used two different kinds of moss only because that is what I had. Each letter used a bag of moss that I got from Micheals. These letters were very easy to do. They only took about 15-20 total to do.

The W-I-L-D letters were the hardest part about this sign. It’s not like they were hard but they were more time consuming. First, I started with the cardboard letters from Micheals. I used an knife to cut of the top of the letter. By the end I realized that you can just peel back the top of the letter and it comes right off.

Wild Letter 1

Then, I added the floral foam into the letter to prepare for the flowers. I used scissors to cut the foam to fit into the letter.   Wild letter 2

Wild letter 4

In order for these letters to look really good and full you first start with the greenery. Place the greenery around the perimeter of the letter and a few in the center to make sure it all blends together  Wild Letter 3

I then added moss onto the letter so it would fill in the gaps by gluing the moss on. After the moss placed the flowers on the letter. I finished the letters with the tall sprouted floral stems. I like the sprouted ones because they add a touch of whimy.  wild letter 6

 

wild letter 5

To attach the letters onto the wood I used a nail to hang the LOVE letter on. The GROWS letters I had to use finish nailer and compressor to nail on those letters and then to attach the WILD letters I used the 3M mounting tape.

This sign turned out great. I love it. It was easy to do. I love that the sign is such a great focal point and everyone loved the sign.

Easy Oreo Truffles Recipe

These easy and delicious Oreo truffles are the bee’s knees of no bake desserts. Just one and you’ll be hooked for life.

Oreo Truffles - www.classyclutter.net

You guys, remember how I told you about our one treat a week situation? Well, I made these for Superbowl Sunday and I can’t get enough!! They are ridiculously easy to make, taste amazing and could be the cutest little gift you ever did see! With only a few ingredients, you’ve got an amazing dessert that you’ll have to hide from your family or they will disappear. For reals.

Ingredients & Supplies:

1  package of Oreo cookies (regular Oreos, not double stuff or fudge)

8 oz package of cream cheese (Room Temperature)

16 oz of chocolate melts or Baker’s chocolate

1 Tbsp of vegetable oil (optional)

Sprinkles

Wax or Parchment Paper

Toothpicks

Cupcake wrappers

Instructions:

In a food processor (I used my Vitamix) grind down the cookies (cream filling and all). It will create a thick powder. Then, mix cookie powder with room temperature cream cheese.. Roll into 1″ balls and place on wax paper or parchment paper. Either will work fine. Place in freezer for 15-20 minutes. Remove from freezer stick a toothpick in each ball.

Next, melt your chocolate. Mine was super thick so I added a tablespoon of vegetable oil and it was the perfect consistency for dipping.

Roll in Balls and stick a toothpick in

Dip your ball into the chocolate and set on parchment paper and add sprinkles (if desired) Allow chocolate to dry and harden.

Dip in melted chocolate

Place on Paper

Twist toothpicks and remove slowly. Add extra sprinkles to cover the toothpick hole. When the chocolate is set, place in a mini cupcake wrapper and you’ve got the cutest little truffle ever!

Energy Blast Citrus Green Smoothie

This Energy Blast Citrus Green Smoothie will give you the energy you need to get your day started. 

Energy Blast Citrus Green Smoothie Recipe

I drink Green Smoothies every morning. No joke. I love them. Personal story alert: I realized a while ago that I was taking in way more caffeine than I thought my body needed. I mean, it doesn’t need any but I craved it because I drank it often. I love me a Dr. Pepper or a Crystal Light Energy but I realized I was hardly going a day without caffeine. I cut myself off from caffeine (I still have it once in a while if I’m out to dinner or something) but I feel 100x better now replacing my caffeinated drinks with green smoothies. This is my “go-to” favorite green smoothie recipe.

Energy Blast Citrus Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 big handfuls of fresh spinach
  • 2 large oranges (or 4 clementines)
  • 1 large red grapefruit (I use Del Monte Grapefruit – It comes in a big plastic jar with 10 grapefruits and grapefruit juice. I do about 1 1/2 cups of that if I don’t use a fresh grapefruit.)
  • 1 1/2 cups of water, orange or grapefruit juice.
  • 1 Tbsp of Chia Seeds

*Makes 2-3 servings*

Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth. I use a refurbished Vitamix, you can check them out here (affiliate link) and it works so well! Buying refurbished will save you a few bucks (like over $100 savings!) and you’d never know it was pre-owned; ours even came with a 5 year warranty. I highly recommend it! I use it 1-2x daily! It even grinds up the chia seeds and orange seeds so you don’t even notice them. This smoothie is more of a pulpy juice. It’s very grapefruit-y without being overpowering or sour. It’s so good!!! I have had it every morning for a couple weeks now and it gives me a ton of energy first thing in the morning. I usually make some scrambled eggs and I stay full well into the afternoon.

Energy Blast Citrus Green Smoothie

I hope you try it! I think you’ll love it! I sure do!
