    DIY Asymmetrical Striped Wall and a great giveaway!

    This asymmetrical striped wall is the perfect accent wall for a kids room, teen room, game room or any fun space! This is a beginner level DIY project that could work in any home! This post is sponsored by the Glidden® opinions expressed are my own brand paint for PPG but all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. A few weeks ago, our dear friend who babysits our kids while we work, asked us to help design and decorate her teenage daughter’s room for a surprise. We are going to show you the full room makeover but today we’re starting with the accent wall behind her bed. We wanted a striped wall but something modern and more fun that your basic symmetrical wall. We chose to do it vertically to make the already high ceilings appear even higher and draw your eye up to the gorgeous wood beans and ceiling in her room. We started with a crisp white wall that the family painted the night before we arrived to paint and decorate! We used a level (vertically) and a pencil to draw different…

    DIY Outdoor Lounge Space

    Before we move, I really wanted to share my back patio space with you guys! Since we were only in our rental for a year, we were really limited on what we could do back here. It’s a great covered porch with dual ceiling fans; a huge bonus in an Arizona home. There are two sliding glass doors that open up to this space; one from the living area and one from the master bedroom. We don’t use the one that comes from the master so we chose to place the outdoor sectional in front of it. The outdoor sectional came from American Furniture Warehouse. It’s the Brevard 4 piece Sectional. The rug came from Target last year (2015). We needed a bit more seating and wanted it to feel like a conversation area so I scored a major deal on this cute patio set from our local grocery store! Crazy right? I think it was $30?? CRAZY deal! I could’ve left it as is but I wanted to add more bright color and personality to the space so I…

    DIY Live Edge Headboard

    This DIY Live Edge Headboard is so cute and an easy DIY project! Great project for beginners and can be completed in a couple hours!I’m so excited to finally show you the tutorial for my little dude’s headboard. We use this room as a guest room a lot so it was important to give my three year old a big enough bed to accommodate guests. Luckily, we gave him our queen bed when we switched to intelliBED (best decision ever!). This headboard is super easy, inexpensive and makes a HUGE impact. I had all of the supplies on hand except for the plywood so it ended up being extra inexpensive for me! Supplies: 1 sheet of plywood – pick a quality piece with a pretty wood grain jigsaw with wood cutting blade sander or sanding block 2 D-rings stain color of your choice staining pads rubber gloves (for staining) eye protection First, place your plywood on a high surface with the edges hanging over so you can cut them without cutting your supports. I used old barstools but if you have…

    DIY Triangle Design Faux Wallpaper

    This post is sponsored by Silhouette America. All ideas and opinions are my own. I’m super excited to be sharing this really easy triangle design faux wallpaper look tutorial with you today! This is my baby’s little nursery nook. We removed the closet doors to expand on the square footage of the room. My littles don’t have any clothes that need hanging except their church clothes, which I keep in my closet. Why not put the wasted space to good use! I decided it didn’t want it to look and feel like I closet, so it definitely needed decor. First, I started by cutting LOTS of equilateral triangles using my Silhouette Studio Software. I found and equilateral triangle on a google search and used the Trace tool to create the custom shape. Then I duplicated the shape and arranged them to maximize the space and minimize the wasted vinyl. On the cut settings, I used the Vinyl preset and cut them out using my Silhouette CAMEO. I started at the top and just started placing them corner to corner, row…

    Mallory’s Girly Office Makeover

    Pretty in pink! I am love with the office space in my new office. It’s the perfect place for me to create, do vinyl orders and even sit and watch Friends. For real. I did bright white and pops of pink and gold throughout the room and I love the turn out. I painted the swash of pink and added my custom made Classy Clutter sign from LetterCraft. My favorite woodworking artists and my neighbors! I created a gallery wall effect on the main wall right when you walk in and used our DIY Acrylic Calendar (See our tutorial here on A Beautiful Mess and/or you can purchase calendar decal here) I used my glittered CREATE letters again from my old craft room, watercolored the flamingo and made a few prints using Heidi Swapp’s Minc Machine. I mean, the gold foiled leopard is my favorite! For the craft island, I took 4 cube organizers and used a huge sheet of melamine on the top and screwed them all together. The flamingo details just make me so happy! You can purchase them…
