My Mexi-Cation

Saturday, August 22, 2015

If you've been wondering where I have been this past week (aka why I haven't posted any DIY projects) it is because I just got back from an amazing trip to Mexico to visit my sister in San Cristobal de las Casas!

DIY Gold Foil Leaf Wall Art

Tuesday, August 11, 2015



I am sure everyone has seen these prints in some form or another by now that say 'Hello There Handsome' and 'Good Morning Gorgeous'. Well, I decided these would be the perfect addition to my master bedroom's gallery wall that I was creating. However, I searched and searched for prints to buy online and really could not find anything I liked (enter DIY goddess) so I made my own!

This project definitely wasn't without it's fair share of trial and error epic failures, which I have documented in this post. Overall, I am pleased with the final product and excited to share it with you!

DIY Pom Pom Trim Curtains

Friday, August 7, 2015



In last week's DIY post I showed you how I created my West Elm Inspired Curtain Rods. This week we are finally going to dress them with some DIY Pom Pom curtains!

That's right... I'm back with more DIY curtains! And these were much easier than the last with a big impact!

I first started seeing this pom pom trend in fashion and then I literally just had this idea to add pom pom trim to some basic curtains (no joke... sometimes I come up with things before I see them via Pinterest) so naturally I had to join in this totally fun trend!

Side note: If you're looking for ways to add this trend to your home check out {R} Favorites Friday which features all things pom-poms and tassels.

Let's get started!

DIY Gift Bag Wall Art [+Gold Corner Frame]

Tuesday, August 4, 2015



Hi! I am so so SO excited to share one of my most creative DIY projects yet!

Back story: The other day my co-workers and I decided a trip to Target over lunch was just what was needed (Target is my 'happy place'). As I was walking through the aisles this gift bag caught my eye. Immediately I knew I had to buy it and find a way to transform it.

Mood Board- Open Shelving

Saturday, August 1, 2015

This is my first attempt at an Inspiration post or a 'mood board'. You see, I've been thinking dreaming about a kitchen with all open shelving. As surprising as it sounds my kitchen is one of the places I am the most organized (not on purpose I might add... I just have to be in such a small space) so I feel like I could get away with it. My plan scheme is to convert only one of my cabinets to open shelving which I am thinking of adding above our 'coffee' station.


So here goes nothing!
