  • Unique Gift Card Gift Idea with The Home Depot

    Hello dear friends! The fun holiday projects continue! Today we’re partnering with The Home Depot to bring a really fun twist on gift card giving! We would honestly be thrilled out of our minds to receive a Home Depot gift card for Christmas so naturally, we want to give them away too! Look at all of the adorable holiday designs on the Home Depot gift cards! They also have a ton of cute designs for eGift cards if you’d rather email one to someone; always a good idea! PS All gift cards are reloadable. We had this idea to do a play on numbers by using a combination lock.  We got our padlock and checked the combination on the back of the lock and bought 3 gift cards in those denominations. Our combination used the numbers 27-33-13 so we got a gift card for each of those amounts. Here’s how we did it! Materials: 3 Home Depot gift cards (mix up the designs for fun!) 1 gallon empty paint can metal chain combination padlock vinyl numbers tissue paper (optional) First,…

  • Holiday Front Door Makeover and easy updates for your home!

    Hello dear friends! We are so excited that the holidays are finally here! Have I mentioned that? 😉 We are traveling and also hosting family this year and I’m so excited to share our front door makeover with you. We’ve partnered with Schlage to create a beautiful and secure front entry for our home. Our front door was fine but nothing special. It was just simple white with a simple handle. I wanted to create a new, beautiful inviting entry with personality. I recently painted my home’s exterior so I really wanted a fun punch of color and blush pink and navy is my favorite color combo right now. I remembered I had blush pink in my favorite Christmas wreath so I chose blush pink for the door color. (Door color: Behr Everythings Rosy). While we were doing some updating, I really wanted a secure lock that also had some personality. I chose this Schlage Touch™ Keyless Touchscreen Deadbolt with Century trim paired with Century Handleset and Latitude Lever with Century trim I love the Latitude Lever and chose to use those throughout my home…

  • DIY Fall Mantle Decor

    I am excited to share this year’s fall mantle with all of you. This year with my mantle I wanted a very clean and classic look with all the colors of fall. I had a hard time finding exactly what I wanted so I knew that I needed to DIY a few things to get the look I was going for. I found some fall leaves and branches but I could not find a vase that I liked to go with the branches. Here is where the DIY comes in, I found a few plain glass vases and using some Krylon® Spray Paint I totally transformed them. I started by using the Krylon® Shimmer Metallic Candy Corn  spray paint and sprayed the top half of the vase. Always be sure to read product label for proper application and safety instructions. This Shimmer Metallic spray has the perfect amount of shimmer to it. It adds a bit more movement and dimension then just plain orange spray paint. After the top of the vase was dry I taped off the top half of the vase. I…

  • DIY Pixelated Cactus Artwork

    Hi friends! We are so excited to finally be sharing this funky cactus art with you today! This technique that we’re going to teach you is totally customizable and can be made into virtually any shape using any colors! We’re Arizona girls so we loved the idea of a trendy cactus, with pink flowers, of course. Materials Needed: 3×4 sheet of thin plywood, your choice! 1×2 boards for trim (optional) Carpenter’s square ScotchBlue Multi-Surface Painter’s Tape Putty knife Pencil Foam paintbrushes Utility Knife Acrylic Paints Note: Follow all ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape package instructions for proper surface cleaning and prep, adhesion and removal. Step 1: Trace a grid of approximately 1” squares on your plywood. We left about a 6” border around the perimeter. Don’t overthink the measurements. This is really flexible.  Step 2: Trace a rough sketch of your cactus shape. Step 3:We recommend sealing the plywood with clear polyurethane before applying tape. Once your poly is dry, tape your traced cactus shape and seal using ScotchBlue Multi-Surface Painter’s Tape around your cactus shape. You will tape off any square that…

  • Easy Address Sign

    Hey everyone! How is everyone enjoying summer so far? I am excited to share with you my updates address sign. My old address sign was fine but I wanted something with a bit more character.   This sign was so easy to make and I only needed a few things to put the whole thing together. Everything I found for this project is from Michaels.     I got this wood plaque that was already the perfect size and I real liked the color then I found these grass blocks in the garden section, the wooden numbers were in the wood section. I also used a hot glue gun and some paint and sponge paint brushes. I choose to use pink paint which if you read our blog at all then you will know that pink and navy seem to be our go to colors. While the paint on the numbers were drying I glued the green grassy squares onto the board.   After that I simply just glued the numbers onto the green squares and I was done!  …

  • Patriotic Front Porch Makeover

    I am so excited to share with you what I have done with my front porch recently. I wanted my front porch to be decked out and ready for July 4th but not only that I also wanted my porch to still look really good even after the 4th of July was over. I went to Pier 1 because it has some really awesome stuff right now. How fun is my front porch?!?! I have been wanting a hanging chair FOREVER now and since the color navy is pretty much a neutral color for me I just about died when I saw this Navy hanging chair and Stand. It was just so perfect and I knew that I had to have it. When I found these cute pillows are Pier 1 I knew that theRed, White and Blue Pillow and the red velvet pillow  would work perfect because they would be great for the holiday but then after July 4th was over these pillows are still very cute and work with my other decor. I also really loved these Red and White stripe pillow. They…
