Moody and Rustic Dining Room Makeover

031

Hi friends! I’m SUPER excited to share my new dining room makeover with you! I did some simple changes and some big DIYs to create a space that can fit my whole family and then some.

My husband and I made this DIY Pedestal Farmhouse table and bench using Shanty 2 Chic’s amazing tutorial. The chairs are from Amazon and I love them! You can find them here. (affiliate link)

030

I painted the back wall black and replaced my Navy China Cabinet with these industrial shelves. Over the Big Moon has an awesome tutorial for this. Check it out here.

035

I was loving the contemporary but rustic feel of the room and had the idea to switch out my chandelier for something more modern.

034

I found this totally dreamy Linear Socket Chandelier on Etsy from Lucent Light Shop which is based out of Phoenix, which I love. They customized it for me and it’s now available in their shop here.

Dining Room 1

Isn’t it gorgeous!? They do such quality work and I love the style it brings to the space.

Dining Room 2 Dining Room 4 Dining Room 5

I really love how it all came together and hope you love it too!

My home tour and saying goodbye to New York

The time has come. Today marks my last full-day living in Buffalo, NY. We’ve loved our little journey here while my husband was in school but we are so happy to be moving home to Arizona. I thought for my last week here, it’d be fun to share a tour of my little 1100 square foot home that is being packed up right now. It’s such a bittersweet feeling to pack up a home you love and move to a new home. It’s exciting and kinda sad at the same time. I got a little emotional when I was removing the wood scallops from my Wood Scalloped Wall that Savannah and I did for Creating with the Stars last year. There are so many memories here but that wall was my favorite project we’ve ever done and my favorite room in the house. Anyway, this post will be full of lots of photos so I’ll keep my chit chat to a minimum. haha! ;)

When your first walk in the door, you walk right into my living room. You can see the full room reveal with all the details here.

Behind the door is our little coat closet. Read all about it here.

Around the corner is our teeny tiny kitchen and breakfast nook. It’s super tiny but has served us well. Check out the makeover here.

Still one of the most popular projects on our blog, the DIY Canned Food organizer. Tutorial can be found here.

Next, my favorite room in the house. Our “master” bedroom. We put our little boys in the biggest bedroom since I have 4 of them and we took a smaller bedroom so this is our master bedroom even though it’s one of the smaller rooms. I literally had a moment when I put the wood scallops in a box. It’s just my favorite ever. You can find the tutorial for the wall here.

Next is our only bathroom. 6 of us share this little bathroom so while it makes for crazy mornings, I really love it!

Oh man, the superhero room. I poured my heart into this makeover and really tried to capture my boys’ fun personalities while maintaining a modern / contemporary look. I love the saturated colors and let’s get real, superheroes are awesome. Check out the full Superhero Room makeover here.

Here’s my little girly corner of the house, my Basement Craft Studio. Our unfinished basement turned into my studio for projects and running my vinyl shop, Classy Clutter Designs.

Next up, the playroom! My little dudes have made a lot of Lego creations and a LOT of memories in this little bedroom that we turned into the playroom. We won’t have a playroom at the new house but I plan on hanging the DIY Tandem Bicycle Art in the garage. I love it! Check out the playroom reveal here.

A week from today, we fly from BUF > PHX for our new adventure. We are so excited to be back in Arizona with family and friends but this little corner of Western New York will always hold a very special place in our hearts.

Light and Bright Kitchen and Living Room Update

I have made some changes over the last few weeks around the house and they were all very easy and quick changes but they made a BIG impact. Joanna Gaines from the hit show Fixer Upper on HGTV is such a role model and a little while back she updated a house and added the most amazing atrium in the house, since then I have wanted to add fresh herbs into my life. I got these shelves at Ikea and I had them styled with some dishes but I now have floating shelves in my dining room area ( which I can’t wait to show you next week). 028

026

Since I moved the dishes from the Ikea Shelves the herbs found new home right in my kitchen and they make me so happy! Another change I made in the kitchen was changing out my bar stools and I must say it was LONG over due. my old black bar stools were much to high and it was not that comfortable to sit at the bar. Now with the new bar stools that I found at Target the bar has now become the most popular hang out spot.

Kitchen-

For a reminder check out what my kitchen area once looked like above. My kitchen has been a work in progress if you want to see the story from the beginning check out the story HERE. Below is what my kitchen now looks like. I love the new  look. It makes the kitchen look much better.  022 edited

The new blinds are from Home Depot and the runner is from Target.

IMG_1244 The picture above is what my fireplace and my tv area looked like a little while back. Paint can do the most amazing thing. I lightened up the walls in my living room and it totally change the look in the room. I wish I knew what color I used but I mixed paint colors that I already had and made my own color.  After that  I used 3M mounting tape to redo my fireplace and it really dressed up the fireplace.  Another change is that I hung two lights that I found at Great American Furniture Warehouse above my TV. I love that it finished off the look of my living room. Check out my fireplace mantel redo HERE

I am super excited to show you the rest of my house updates. Next week  I am going to share with you my new dining room and to say I am obsessed is an under statement.

Do It Herself (DIH) Workshop and You’re Invited!

Compensation was provided by The Home Depot via Mode Media. The opinions expressed herein my own and are not indicative of the opinions or positions of The Home Depot.

DIY Paver Planter Tutorial

Well hello, friends! Question for you; how do you feel about power tools? Comfortable? Scared? Pro? Let’s hear it. No matter where you’re at skill-wise with power tools, building and DIYing, we want you to know that you can do it! You are capable! We’ve teamed up with The Home Depot and invite you to come build this awesome Paver Planter at your local Home Depot store.

Have you heard of a DIH workshop? The 3rd Thursday of every month, Home Depot hosts a DIH (Do It Herself) workshop that will help you to grab the skills and confidence you need to create some really amazing projects from simple builds, Home Decor projects and even Home Improvement Projects. You’ll work along side other women and professionals to help you every step of the way! How awesome is that? Excited yet?

This month’s project is this super fun, super cute Paver Planter. I’ll give you the run down here but you can grab some girlfriends and build one together at The Home Depot. You can register here.

Let’s get started!

Screen Shot 2015-04-07 at 9.43.08 PM

First, you’ll need to cut your 2x2s. I had the guys at The Home Depot do this for me. They’re always super helpful if you are not comfortable using a saw or if you don’t own one. You’ll need (4) 16″ pieces and (8) 12″ pieces. After you’re done cutting, sand any rough edges using your sanding block.

Sand

Apply a stain and polyurethane to your wooden pieces. I like to wear disposable gloves because stain can really stain your hands. Go figure. ;) TIP: If you do get stain on your hands, scrub your hands with some vegetable oil and a pinch of sugar and it rinses right off. I used Minwax Jacobean for this project. It’s my current favorite stain color. I love how rich it is.

Stain

For the next step, grab your 3″ deck screws. The ones I purchased from The Home Depot do not require pre-drilling. Drill and countersink the 2×2 pieces together, with the 16 ̋ pieces forming the legs, and the 12 forming the support between the legs. Apply some wood glue, and then screw in the 12 ̋support pieces in 12 ̋ down the legs. Make sure to allow for the pavers to be flush around the entire top. I held my paver into place to make sure if fit snugly before gluing and drilling.

Inside Supports

Next, grab your remaining four 12 inch 2x2s, drill, apply some wood glue, and space them evenly across the bottom and screw them into the frame. One of mine got a little crooked when I drilled it in but no worries, no one will see the supports.

build and bungee

Finally, run a thick bead of construction adhesive around the inside perimeter of the frame. Carefully place each paver inside the frame then secure with bungee cords until the adhesive dries.

Planter 3

Optional: I wanted to spruce mine up a bit and since our house numbers on our home are difficult to see, I thought it’d be fun to add them to the planter that sits next to my front door. I used the same construction adhesive and glued address numbers to the paver on the bottom right. You can really get creative here!

DIY Paver Planter 4

Last step, line your planter with landscape fabric and potting soil then add your plants. I chose these beautiful pink hydrangeas I found at The Home Depot. You all know I love a pop of pink and these were perfect for springtime.

Planter 1

That’s it! I’m ready to build a second one for the other side of my front door! They’re so welcoming!

Backyard Makeover

I had such a great opportunity to redo my backyard patio area with Home Depot during the Patio Style Challenge. My backyard was in need of a total makeover. We had this plain and very boring patio area on the side of our house. It was such an eye sore but now its a place that we can really entertain in.

Check out the BEFORE:

Now the AFTER:  044

 

I love this space. We did this covered area that is much-needed in Arizona. I am in total love with this patio set. Not only is very comfortable it has such great fabric. I got the outdoor loveseat and two swivel rockers from the Spring Haven Grey patio collection, with cushions in Spectrum Sand. The slip covers are made from weather-resistant Sunbrella fabric since the sun in Arizona so hard on outdoor fabric.  I have been sitting out there every morning and it’s been just so nice.  051

Using 2×1 boards we built a privacy wall that also creates even more shade. It also separates the patio space from the dining area. Its lined with beautiful trees. 055

I have loved these lights since the beginning of time and above the dining table is the perfect spot for them. It helped to define the dinning area. The lights also dress up the area a bit.  082

080

071

This grill is top-notch! I must say I have never seen a grill quite like this one, I mean the front lights up how cool is that. It’s the KitchenAid 5-Burner Propane Gas Grill in Stainless Steel.  060

I love this table cloth from Anthropologie I felt like it fits the mood of the backyard space perfectly.  009

004

The cute rug was a great score from Home Goods for only $50. That place really does just make me so happy! 001

006

052 I am very excited to entertain in this space and have many memories.  For even more details be sure to check out our post over on the Home Depot Blog HERE.

What do you think about this makeover?
