$500 Home Depot Giveaway

IMG_9824

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to go to Cleveland, Ohio to co-host Home Depot’s Do It Herself workshop this month. This month’s project was the DIH Rolling Cart.

DIH Rolling Beverage Cart 2

Get the full building plans here.

At the workshop I was able to give gift cards to some of the people that attended and as an extra bonus the store had three different carts pre-built and had all the cutting material pre-cut for the attendees. Together we built a cart and also raffled that off and gave another lucky winner all the material to build the cart in their own at home.  The attendees were very involved in the class and they each had a chance to get more familiar with the tools that we used to build this project. I feel like the tools can be a bit overwhelming and also intimidating for most people but that’s what I love so much about the DIH workshops, these projects are very doable and every girl can build them. It’s just the matter of getting use to the tools being used. Also, I wanting to point out something that a lot of the attendees didn’t know, the Home Depot staff are there to help you. Use them! This cart becomes WAY easier if you take your cut list to the store and have the store cut everything you need. Then, when you get home you just have to put it together which is the easy part. For me, the hardest part for a build project is getting every single cut perfect.  All in all, it was so fun to build right in the Home Depot store with these ladies!

Girls Gone Glamping – #FBF

4-24-2014 2-02-40 PM

It’s been a few months since our amazing trip to Montana with Skinny Cow for our Girls Gone Glamping trip. It was such an incredible experience and we’re excited to tell you that that 9 winners and their best friends will soon be off to Montana for the girl’s trip of a lifetime!

Congrats to the winners!!! A couple tips for the 18 ladies that will soon take this awesome trip:

  • Make Skinny Cow s’mores! The Divine Filled Chocolates with a toasted marshmallow sandwiched between graham crackers are pretty much heaven on Earth.
  • Experience all you can! It’s really, really easy to sink into full relaxation (aka lazy mode!) when you’re at Paws Up! The resort is so beyond relaxing and you may want to relax the day away in your cabin or glamping tent because they’re so luxurious! That being said, make sure you plan enough time to experience all the resort has to offer so you have no regrets!
  • Take lots of pictures! You won’t be able to put into words how awesome it is when people ask so take tons of pictures so you can show everyone when you get home!

 

Congrats to the Girl’s Gone Glamping Sweepstakes winners! We wish we could go with you and visit Paws Up again! It is truly amazing!

You can really have it all with Skinny Cow Ice Cream and Candy – incredibly delicious and indulgent yet ridiculously sensible! This summer, Skinny Cow is inspiring our girlfriends everywhere to have it all again by going glamping! Think camping with all the glamorous resort frills – bubble baths, candlelight dinners, feather pillows and so much more.

Unique and Colorful Master Bedroom (details + sources)

You guys, I’m the worst! I just realized I’ve never shared my Master Bedroom Reveal with you!  I’ve shared a few tutorials in the room but haven’t shown it all or spilled the details of it all. Don’t worry, it’s happening NOW! I’m sharing all the details, photos and links to the tutorials I’ve shared so far.

Colorful Master Bedroom Makeover - www.classyclutter.net

To give you a little background, this bedroom makeover was our last challenge for Creating with the Stars 2014. We decided we wanted to do a full room makeover since the theme was “Home Decor” and we were really hoping to do something BIG and really impress. I decided about half way through that this was my favorite makeover ever. It also made it about 10x more fun because Savannah flew from AZ to NY to help me complete the room in only 4 days and our frequent conference calls with the hilarious, talented Mandi from Vintage Revivals made it even more awesome.

Master Bedroom Makeover form Classy Clutter

I had already completed the DIY Modern Tufted Headboard when Savannah arrived so first, we decided on the focal wall. With a little (okay, kind of a lot!) of jigsawing, we created the DIY Wood Scalloped Wall (full tutorial here.)  We are both totally obsessed with the wood scallops on the wall and it really is super easy and pretty inexpensive to do it. It’s also great for renters because it doesn’t damage your walls. Hello, awesome! Master Bedroom Makeover form Classy Clutter

We made the Greek key pillows using peach grosgrain ribbon and this gorgeous coral fabric from fabric.com.  We also made the navy and white striped pillows out of a crib sheet we found at Target. We really wanted navy and white stripes but could not find the fabric anywhere local. We could’ve ordered some online but, like I said, we were on a serious time crunch to do this makeover in only 4 days. The turquoise and aqua ikat pillow was from Marshall’s (similar here).

The white quilt is from Target. I don’t see it on their website anymore but I think you can still get it in the stores.  The turquoise throw blanket is amazingly soft and was from HomeGoods.

This dresser could’ve been the death of me. We had about 100 ideas for how to paint it and went back and forth about 800 times about what to do. We finally decided on white and trimmed it out in peach using painter’s tape. I am so glad we finally came up with something we all loved. We got it at the thrift store and let’s just say, it was not cute when we found it. ;)

Master Bedroom Makeover form Classy Clutter

The chair was found at the same thrift store and all I did was recovered the cushion using a faux fur rug. I love the texture it adds! Isn’t it so funky fun? The rug is from Target, Nate Berkus collection but I ended swapping it out for this floral one from Urban Outfitters after the competition. I love both rugs but already had the Urban Outfitters one so I opted to save a few bucks and return the rug.

Master Bedroom Makeover form Classy Clutter

We made these DIY Macramé Planters in about 1o minutes and found the wooden bowls at HomeGoods. The rope and plants came from Home Depot. Savannah painted the bowls to have that dipped look and add a little color. To say I’m in love with them is an understatement.  You can read the full tutorial here.

We did our own little Rast Ikea Hack and turned these cheapy nightstands into adorable mint campaign dressers. Read the full tutorial here.

Hope you love my Colorful Master Bedroom as much as we do! It was SO fun and earned us 2nd place out of 299 projects on Creating with the Stars 2014! I’d call that a success! :)

Hello! My name is Adell and I blog at Baked in Arizona. I’ve always loved being in the kitchen, especially baking! And I love sharing my favorite recipes with family and friends. Making a batch of cookies is my kind of therapy. Some people say the same thing about going for a run. Sure doesn’t taste as good though. :) Some of my hobbies that I enjoy (other than making food for my family) are: running, cleaning, reading, hiking and snowboarding (although being so far away from the snow, I don’t get to do that as much as I would like to).

Charlotte - Crafts

After 10 years cruising the big bad streets of New York City, my family up and went suburban in June of 2012.  The decision to leave the urb for the burb was saddest for me so Ciburbanity (city + suburb + sanity) was born as a suburban diary, record book, and sounding board.  I write about life (which basically means my lack of a social life), kids (four under the age of 5), our house, and anything else (read: CRAFTS!!!) that crosses my diaper and thrifty filled brain.  If it’s colorful or quirky, I want it… if it has a red clearance sticker, I want it… if it’s a little weird or unexpected, I want it.  My design style is frugal repurposed eclectic (look it up- it’s probably a thing), and I may or may not have 8 chairs, 3 coffee tables, and a dresser in my garage.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Shake Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookie Shake - www.classyclutter.net

The clouds have parted and the greatest, most delicious dessert ever has been born. You guys, this is the most delicious shake EVER! Seriously. I made cookies the other night for Family Home Evening and decided the next day I wanted a cookie… except I wanted to fancy it up a little. I had the crazy idea of making it into a shake. My life will never be the same. (PS. Could you just die at those cute animal print straws!?!)

To have the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie Shake Recipe EVER, you have to have the BEST chocolate chip cookies ever. My friend’s blog, Sugar Baby Boutique, has that recipe for ya. I’m telling you, best (and easiest!!) Chocolate Chip Cookies you’ll ever taste. I have seriously made them like 80 times. Not exaggerating. She has some awesome tips for mixing the dough and for baking them to perfection. Genius.

Anyway, make the cookies, make the shake, then send me a big fat love note!

Anyway, make the cookies, make the shake, then send me a big fat love note!

 

Chocolate Chip Cookie Shake Recipe:

 

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies – or whatever Chocolate Chip Cookies YOU love.
  • 1-2 scoops of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
  • 1 cup of milk (I used Light Almond Milk)

Directions:

In a blender, mix all ingredients until semi-smooth. I suggest 2-3 cookies per 2 scoops of ice cream. Take another cookie and crumble it up into dime size pieces. Mix into the shake with a spoon. This gives you delicious little cookie chunks in your shake. You may need a straw and a spoon to eat this!
