  • DIY Fall Floral Wall Art and Centerpieces

    This post is sponsored by JOANN. All opinions and project ideas are our own. Fall is the absolute best time for entertaining!

  • Modern Ranch Reno: DIY Outdoor Swings

    This post is sponsored by National Hardware. All opinions and product selections are my own. My kids have been begging for some outdoor swings ever since we moved into our new house. At our old house we had a swing set and at our new house we had the idea of doing some swings underneath our covered patio.  We wanted to do them under the patio so that in the summer time and the very hot months in Arizona we can still enjoy them. We ended up doing 3 DIY Outdoor Swings on the covered patio and these were very easy to build, inexpensive and a one day project. Here are the things you will need to make a single swing. 2″x8″ douglas fir studs cut to 3o” long Random orbital sander with 80 grit sand paper 2- Swing Hook Kit 8- 1/2 Wire Cable Clamps Wood Stain Staining and wiping cloths 20′ of 1/2″ braided rope…we got ours here, we chose light grey. Spray Paint Impact Driver with 3/4″ deep impact socket, or a 3/8″ socket wrench with 3/4″…

  • DIY Pool Organizer

    Summer in Arizona can only mean one thing, pool time! With temperatures reaching 100-120 degrees daily, we have spent hours and hours by the pool. We realized that pool activities require a bunch of accessories, toys, etc. We have pool floats, diving rings, goggles, towels, sunscreen and tons more. By the looks of our little shelving area, it was time for some color and a Pool Organizer. The shelving unit was working great but the bins were very sad looking and my kids just threw everything everywhere when it was time to clean up.  When we don’t have a system in place, they just aren’t sure where things go and it tends to get disorganized very quickly. We decided to replace the bins with some sturdy plastic bins in two different sizes to accommodate the different pool supplies that we had. We spray painted the bins with Krylon Outdoor Décor spray paint in Satin Bluegrass. I love the cool blue/green color that reminds me of the crisp, cool pool water! It took 2-3 coats of Krylon Outdoor Décor spray paint…

  • Dinner Party Décor using TIKI Clean Burn Firepieces.

    I am excited to share this dinner party decor that I did for a recent dinner party. I wanted the dinner party to have simple and yet really cool elements and layers to it and I feel like that’s exactly what I was able to achieve.  I did the dinner party in my parent’s backyard because it’s just so dreamy and it went perfectly with the dinner party décor; it was cozy and fun. First thing I did after I figured out the location was check out some of the products that TIKI Brand offers. I will be totally honest I had no idea that TIKI Brand had tabletop decor. They have so many awesome products. When I saw the Clean Burn Tabletop System, I knew they would be perfect for the party decor that I was going for. They are colorful and classic and the fire brought such a cool vibe to the party. The tabletop firepieces went really well with the colorful vases that I had planned on using for some flowers. To start the table decor I laid down a black…
