    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!  …

  • Pier 1 4th of July decor

    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…

  • Movie Night Party -

    Movie Night Mantel Decor

    This month as part of the Michaels Makers team, we were challenged to throw a Summer Party! We always have a bunch of parties to attend in the summer! We also celebrate 3 of our 6 family members’ birthdays in the summer; one in May, my birthday in July and one in August.  For this summer party, I thought it would be fun to do something different than a summer holiday or birthday party and do something that is perfect for summer but could also work all year round. We love to stay up late and watch movies in the summer so I thought it would be so fun to create a fun movie night and invite cousins over to watch our favorite family movies! Que the popcorn! I am obsessed with this cute Cinema style decor from Heidi Swapp, available at Michaels. I got the lightbox, “Showtime” arrow marquee and lightbox accessories. You can purchase a Heidi Swapp Lightbox here. I got a red garland and a gold garland and alternated the colors to make a multicolored tassel garland.…

  • LOVE this garage organization! The labels and bins are amazing! Click for tutorial!

    DIY Custom Labels + My Garage Organization progress

    This post is sponsored by Silhouette America. All ideas and opinions are my own. HOORAY! Today we’re talking organization; one of my favorite topics! I recently tackled my garage for all of the odds and ends of the household and created a functional (and cute!) storage solution for all of that stuff that doesn’t have “a home”. In our house, every item needs a home. If something doesn’t have a home, it doesn’t get put away properly and eventually gets lost, broken or forgotten. Do you have these items? Things like a random picnic blanket, random party supplies, in between or out of season clothing, memorabilia, car accessories or seasonal items seem to be the trend at our house. I also wanted a visible, safe place for my Christmas and various holiday decor. Christmas is my major decor holiday, which I feel like maybe its that way for most people(??). For other holidays, I have a few items I throw up or a lot of times I will make a few items here or there for holidays. I’m going to show you…

    Star Wars Kids Bedroom

    This room reveal is sponsored by American Furniture Warehouse but all the opinions are my own.   You guys!!! I am so excited to share my little boys room with you today. To say that he is obsessed with his new room is a bit of an understand. My three-year old little boy Ryder LOVES Star Wars. I wanted to give him a themed room with out it being to “cheesy” and I really think that Mallory and myself nailed it. The first thing that I bought for his new big boy room was his headboard. I wanted the headboard to be classy and timeless and when I found this headboard from American Furniture Warehouse I knew it was perfect. What I love about the headboard is that it totally gives the room a very rich and sophisticated feel to the room, especially with a themed room that was really important to me. I LOVE American Furniture Warehouse. I am lucky enough to have one about 20 mins from my house and whenever I am looking for a new piece of…
