    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…

    Travel Trailer Redo

    Finally, I have the before and after pictures of my travel trailer. We loved being able to partner with the Home Depot for this project. We put a lot of energy and time into this trailer and I totally love the outcome. We are going camping in it this weekend and it just makes me so happy.     I mean it really did turn out so good. The trailer was not in really bad shape it just needed a bit of a facelift. Here are some of the before pictures.     Here are some of the after pictures…   I am excited to share all the details of where everything is from and how we did this transformation.

    Easy DIY Hexagon Table and How to Paint Laminate

    I’m super excited to share my new, easy DIY Hexagon Table and how to paint laminate with you guys. When I say new, I mean, like I got it 6 months ago. I got a hexagon claw foot table from craigslist and gave it a full makeover. The table top is laminate so I’m going to show you my fool proof tips for painting laminate! Supplies for painting laminate: Krud Kutter Sander Sandpaper Tack Cloth Sherwin Williams Multi-Purpose Latex Primer Sherwin Williams Pro Classic paint Minwax Polycrylic – Semi Gloss I don’t have a full before photo but it looked like this. First thing I did was take the table legs off and prop it up on some old barstools. I wiped the entire thing down with an old t-shirt and Krud Kutter. This stuff cuts down the glossy finish and gets it all prepped for sanding. It claims to increase adhesion without sanding but when you’re painting laminate I feel like, you still have to sand. All the prep work ensures great adhesion of paint.  Next, I sanded the table with…
