  • Modern Ranch Reno: Hallway Gallery Wall

    Do you have a hard time not knowing what to do on your gallery wall? Do you do artwork or photos on a gallery wall? At my house I have a little hallway that leads to my master bedroom and also my babies room. I was a bit unsure what I should do down the hallway.  Then I decided that a simple gallery wall is exactly what the wall needed. I did not want it to be crazy so I decided an oversized gallery wall would be great. My mom as Mother’s day gift to me had pictures of my kids taken by the amazing Abbie Martinsen. They turned out so cute and knew they would be perfect for that space. This is what the hallway looked like when we bought the house. It has come a very long way since this picture. I still can’t this is what it looked like. Now lets talk about how we transformed this space. Photo Shoot It was great because the photo shoot was very simple. I first had all my kids wear…

  • A DIYer’s Garage Makeover

    This garage makeover is a DIY’ers dream come True! Mine anyway! This garage makeover features cute yet durable flooring, storage solutions and even decorating ideas for your own garage makeover. Y’all, I finally got the garage makeover done. I am from Arizona and spent most of my life there, besides 4 years in New York and a month long attempt at summer sales in Houston, Texas that was the actual worst. So, I probably can’t say Y’all but it just came out. Anyway, I am freaking done. My garage looked like what I’ve consider “normal” which means to most us, of our Monica’s closets of our homes. All the random things we likely don’t need or items that don’t “have a home” which is my number one rule of order in my home. After my garage makeover, this habit has been broken and I am so glad to know where my stuff is. Looking at before and after pictures are sometimes misleading. This did not happen overnight or even in the same week. I worked on it for three weeks…

  • Classy Clutter Shop: Pillow Covers Collection

    Our pillows were a labor of love. We created each one with the ultimate Classy Clutter vibe. They come in 3 sizes, 20×0″, 24×24″ and 12×36″. These are high quality pillow covers that are machine washable (do not dry!) and feature a gorgeous gold zipper. We also have 3 different “sets” of pillows that pair really well together! Classy Clutter Pillow Covers The Classy Clutter Signature Collection of pillow covers, encompasses everything that the Classy Clutter brand represents. Bold prints, flirty florals, luxe fabrics, gold zipper and best of all, affordability. These are pillow covers, not filled throw pillows so you have the option of recovering a pillow you already own or you can purchase pillow inserts for them. Pillow Inserts The pillow inserts can make or break the pillow. An ill fitting, sloppy insert can result in a pretty terrible looking pillow, even when you have the cutest cover ever on it. No one likes a misshaped or floppy pillow sitting on their sofa or bed. That being said, we recommend using faux down or synthetic down pillow inserts…
