How to edit photos for FREE

Monday, December 3, 2018


If you are like me-- most 'skills' are constantly a work in progress. Photography is no exception. I have been blogging and taking pictures for a little over 3 years and I am by no means an expert but I've learned a few tricks that have helped my photos dramatically and thought it would be fun to share them with you!

Holiday Gift Giving Made Easy with Kirkland's

I know we've all been there- you're getting ready for a Christmas party and realize you may have forgotten one or two (or three 😁...) people on your list! Or maybe you were invited to a last minute holiday gathering and you're looking for a hostess gift that isn't your standard bottle of wine.

Holiday Porch Tour

Monday, November 19, 2018


It's no secret that I love decorating our front porch- even if I am not the one who gets to see it! I am not lying when I say that I had a woman come knock on my door during the Halloween season to tell me that she just loved my porch decor and it made my day! So, I do it for those who walk by- and for all those people delivering the mail, packages, etc. It brings me joy to make my porch festive for the season!

How to Make Cabinet Wreaths

Friday, November 9, 2018


I have always been someone who decorates every inch of our house for Christmas (yes... even the bathrooms!). I just love to walk into any room and feel that holiday spirit! Decorating my kitchen for Christmas was the most fun this year since painting our cabinets white (see full tutorial here)! One of the things I knew I wanted to do this year was add some fun wreaths on our cabinet doors!

It's beginning to look a lot like...CHRISTMAS!

Monday, October 29, 2018



I know it's early but I just couldn't resist sharing a few budget friendly Christmas decor finds! I must admit that I am in the category of 'those who decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving' and... well... I'm not ashamed! I've actually considered starting a tradition of decorating the Christmas Tree while we hand out candy on Halloween! Jury's still out on that one...

Fall Home Tour: Front Porch

Friday, October 5, 2018


When I first laid eyes on our front porch when we looked at this house online I had visions of how I would decorate it for fall. I had always dreamed of having a porch like this to decorate! I am so excited to be sharing a tour of this year's fall porch with y'all!

If you're looking for a cheap and easy way to update a space then look no further! I bring you drop cloth curtains! I seriously do wonder who started this phenomenon. Drop clothes as curtains? Absolutely genius!

DIY Fall Doormat

Sunday, September 23, 2018



I have been seeing so many fun, custom doormats popping up on Pinterest and Instagram lately and knew I had to try to make my own for my fall porch!

$100 Room Challenge Week 3: Dollar Store Organization

Friday, September 21, 2018


I heard something once that you shouldn't have to buy anything in order to get organized. While I do believe that to be true in some sense (aka not having to spend hundreds of dollars to organize a space) I also think that small items really help a space, especially an office or craft room, stay organized.

$100 Room Challenge Week 2: How to Build a Pegboard

Thursday, September 13, 2018


When I decided to take on our craft room for this challenge I knew it had to include a pegboard! I have been wanting to try this project for years- ever since I saw pegboards become popular in nursery decor. So, I decided this challenge would be the perfect time to give it a go! And this project literally cost less than $15 and provides TONS of accessible storage!

DIY Farmhouse Style Bar Stools

Thursday, July 19, 2018


Have you ever started a DIY project, then another, then another and suddenly you have what seems like a zillion projects going at once? That about sums up my summer so far this year.

How to Make a Custom Wood Sign

Monday, July 2, 2018


Have you ever seen those custom wood signs and wondered how to make you own? Well, I decided to try my hand at this craft and realized very shortly into the project that sign making is a serious business that takes a lot of patience (and supplies).

How to Create a Farmhouse Kitchen for Less Than $200

Yes, you read the title of this post correctly. I was able to completely makeover my kitchen for less than $200! How, you ask? Blood, Sweat, Tears and some paint supplies.

How to Prep Your Kitchen Cabinets for Paint

Monday, June 4, 2018


I always feel so teased when I see progress posts on my favorite blogger's pages while I know they're in the middle of a big makeover but I couldn't not share my progress because I want to share the good, the bad, and the ugly with y'all and I'm afraid if I wait until the end of this project I'll be so blinded by my dreamy white kitchen that I'll forget all the hardships along the way.

10 Patio Projects That Won't Break The Bank

Wednesday, May 30, 2018


I'd be lying if i said I was proud of our back patio. It's a great space but its lackin' in terms of decor! It's not necessarily in my budget (or on my summer bucket list) to buy a bunch of patio decor but I may do a couple DIY projects to give this space a quick facelift since we do spend quite a bit time in our backyard now that our little guy is as active as ever! To inspire myself I've rounded up a few of my favorite porch DIY's!

Friday Favorites

Friday, May 25, 2018


Welcome to Friday Favorites! I am so excited to start a new weekly blog series that I'll be sharing every Friday (hopefully!). My goal is to share a few of my favorite things that I'm loving every Friday. This weekly round up will be a true mash-up of all things that I'm currently into from books I'm reading to my latest Dollar Store DIY or a new product I can't live without and like the rest of my blog it'll all be mindful of those on a budget!

Dollar Store Topiaries

Wednesday, May 23, 2018


I so wish I could keep plants alive for longer than a month (5 weeks is actually my record!) but it's just not the case. I'm a faux plant lady all the way! So, when I saw these topiaries gaining popularity I knew I was going to have to either find some a faux pair I loved or make them myself.

Kitchen Reno Mood Board

Tuesday, May 15, 2018


As you know, our bathroom makeover that we completed as part of the One Room Challenge recently came to a close, leaving me feel anxious with nothing to look forward to. So, I decided to put together a little bucket list of things I wanted to get done this summer. One of those things includes a budget kitchen reno, or a facelift if you will.

How to Make a Custom Clipboard

Sunday, May 13, 2018


Happy Mother's Day! This day is quickly becoming my favorite holiday of the year because it is such a wonderful day to celebrate all the amazing women in my life and a day to celebrate becoming a Mother myself. Today I wanted to share a quick & easy DIY project that you can make!

One Room Challenge REVEAL: Guest Bathroom

Wednesday, May 9, 2018


I am doing my happy dance over here as I type! I have been anxiously awaiting this reveal for a little over a week since completing our guest bathroom renovation for the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home and House Beautiful!

Summer Bucket List

Monday, May 7, 2018


I know you've heard of a bucket list for life but I wanted to put one together for a list of DIY's I want to get done this summer. I seem to be the most content when I'm busy or have something to look forward to... if that even makes sense. I basically hate to sit still (except if it's guilty pleasure TV time which is currently bingeing Shameless on Netflix!) so busy is my version of content.

One Room Challenge Week 5: DIY Faux Shiplap

Wednesday, May 2, 2018


It's here, it's here! My DIY Faux Shiplap tutorial! And let me tell you- while this project was budget friendly- it was quite the feat. I would still consider my husband and I newbie DIY'ers and this was probably the most in depth project we have completed together and I'm impressed we got through it in one piece!

Happy Blogiversary- A look back at my blogging journey!

Tuesday, May 1, 2018


I recently had the sweetest Instagram friend reach out to me requesting some insight into how I got started blogging. I was so humbled that she reached out and at first a little nervous to put myself out there in this way because I still consider myself a newcomer to all things blogging but she encouraged me to share my blogging journey from one beginner to another! So, in honor of R&R at home turning THREE on April 29th (I'm a few days late) I wanted to share a little blogiversary post with y'all!

Budget Friendly Farmhouse Bathroom Decor + FREE Printable

Friday, April 27, 2018


As I've been putting together our guest bathroom for the One Room Challenge I've been on the hunt for budget friendly farmhouse bathroom decor! I've rounded up some of my favorite finds! BONUS: I have included a FREE printable for you!

One Room Challenge Week 4: DIY Towel Rack

Thursday, April 26, 2018


I feel like I should start this post with 'womp wompppppp' because I fully intended on bringing you a Faux Shiplap tutorial but life happened and we weren't able to complete our shiplap wall in time. I also did not want to rush this process because rushing can lead to mistakes and this is one wall I don't want to mess up! So, I'm bringing you a tutorial on how to make a Farmhouse style towel rack!

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!
