Valentine's Inspired Chalkboard

Valentine's Day is approaching, and I wanted to do a few little decorative things around the house. This chalkboard is the first thing I did. I am no artist, but I am happy with how my first real chalk-art project turned out.

Thoughtful and Inexpensive DIY Present Idea


Here's a gift idea that would work for anyone. I bought a bunch of frames from the dollar store, spray painted them all the same color and filled them with photos of loved ones . They can be hung all together as a gallery wall, or set out separately around the house.

DIY Hanging Doily Lamp


 I actually made this lamp as a Christmas gift for my cousin, Alicia. I wasn't sure what to get her so I did some creeping around on her Pinterest and saw that she had pinned a lamp like this. It is a project that I have been wanting to tackle for a long time now and decided that this would be the perfect opportunity.  I did a lot of research before I started, took all of the advice I could find, and it paid off because this lamp turned out exactly how I wanted it to (I love when that happens). I ended up being easier than I expected too.

Dining Room Gallery Wall

Here is the finished dining room gallery wall made from mirrors and empty picture frames.

Mirror and Picture Frame Gallery Wall

I'm just dropping in to give you a sneak peek of a project that I did to fill one of the walls in my dining room. I got a collection of different mirrors and picture frames and painted them all the same color. In this picture, I have them laid out on the dining room table to play around with their positions. I will post the finished project soon.

More Kitchen Progress

Here are a few more pictures of our progress in the kitchen. We have some upper cupboard doors now too. It makes the whole kitchen look so much cleaner and brighter.

Christmas Ornament Wreath

A little while ago, my friend Amanda and I had a craft night where we made these Christmas ornament wreaths. I am so in love with how they turned out!

We used wooden wreath forms wrapped in ribbon (to hide the wood) and attached the balls using hot glue. It was a super easy and I will definitely be making more.
