One Room Challenge Week 3: Bathroom Vanity Install

Thursday, April 19, 2018


Welcome to Week 3 of the One Room Challenge! This week brought a whole new meaning to the word 'challenge' as we did our first ever bathroom vanity install. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my stories this weekend that talked all about a major issue we had with installing the sink top on this vanity. I'll save you the nitty gritty details but I'll just say that we spent the whole weekend driving back and forth to Ikea due to defective products. The good news? Our vanity is installed and I LOVE it! And it was a relatively simple project that I wish I had done right when we moved in!

One Room Challenge Week 2: Bathroom Vanities on a Budget

Wednesday, April 11, 2018



Welcome to Week 2 of the One Room Challenge! This weekend threw me for a loop- our little one came down with something and had a fever all weekend which meant no projects, but lots of cuddles! I was planning on installing our vanity in the guest bathroom this weekend to bring you an amateur's guide to plumbing but we got very little work done in this room so I'm bringing you a list of the best bathroom vanities on a budget!

One Room Challenge Week 1: Guest Bathroom Mood Board

Friday, March 30, 2018


It's almost April which means... TAX RETURN TIME! We nearly always put our tax return into savings but this year we have a different plan. You see, our guest bathroom is in major need of some TLC. We live in a relatively new house so it's not as if we need to do a major renovation, it's really more of cosmetic changes that are needed. It's been a while since I've created a mood board so I figured I'd give it a go!

What's In My Toddler's Easter Basket

Tuesday, March 27, 2018


I may be the worst Mom ever but I did not have an Easter basket prepared for my son's first Easter last year. I honestly had zero clue what to put in an Easter basket for a 1 month old. So, I'm making up for it this year with a fun toddler Easter basket and on a budget of course! The whole basket cost less than $25!

How To Age Galvanized Metal

Sunday, March 25, 2018


I know we've all heard of the 'Ikea hack' but what about the 'Target Dollar Spot hack'. Maybe it doesn't roll off the tongue as easily but i'm officially making it a thing with today's post! I was recently wandering the aisles of my happy place aka Target when I came across this adorable metal watering can. I plopped it in my card and took her home with me to be displayed in our entryway. After walking past it a few times I felt it looked too new so I decided to try my hand at aging metal!

How to Make Custom Map Art

Monday, March 19, 2018


I cannot believe I have let over two months go by since the New Year New Room Refresh ended to post this DIY Map Art tutorial! This fun map art was part of my original room mood board and my DIY version turned out so much better than I was expecting!

Walmart Time and Tru Collection: A few faves!

Tuesday, March 13, 2018


Hey there! I was putting my little down for a nap this morning and scrolling the internet like I always do when I came across Walmart's website and noticed a banner promoting their new clothing line for women called Time and Tru! Shopping for clothes has kind of been a no go for me lately because we are on such a tight budget. I may find the occasional sale item but getting a new spring/summer wardrobe was really not in the budget- until now! I am so pumped to go see what I can put together for less than $100!
