Changing my look...again!

 If you're one of my loyal followers, you'll quickly notice that I've changed my header...again!

My blog has gone through many different 'hairstyles' since I began in 2013. While I really liked my latest look, I recently realized that it was quite similar to the color and design of another DIY blogger.

Mine was still original enough not to be infringing on any design no-nos, but
I pride myself on being an original!

(and to be honest, I wasn't really in love with it)

In the words of the Little River Band,

"it's time for a cool change".

So I took some time this weekend and revamped a few things.
 
I hope you love my new look as much as I do!

DIY Robins Eggs and The Promise of Spring

robins eggs tutorial DIY beautify

Who doesn't love the promise of Spring...
...flowers pushing up through the dirt...buds forming on trees and fresh green leaves unfurling....the sweet blue of robins eggs...and the joy of new life as baby robins appear.

It never gets old, does it?

I wanted to recreate the speckled robins eggs in a format that would never fade (or crack) and that I could bring out and enjoy each Spring.

I'm sharing the full tutorial for my DIY Robins Eggs today

If you're like me (and the majority of America), you're addicted to Fixer Upper! Chip and Jo are not only cute and funny, with a marriage and family life (and farmhouse) to bring out the green monster of jealousy in the best of us...but the miracles those two can work with a dilapidated house! It's enough to make me want to pack up and move to Waco just so they can redo a home for us!

What does Fixer Upper have to do with today's project? Well, I am getting to that...truly!

Easter Decor

Today I'm sharing a little home tour and my Easter decor.

I didn't go out and spend a bunch of money. I reused things I had, displaying them a little differently. In fact, very little money was spent to update my home for Easter.

Graphic Eggs in Painted Cabinet


If you're like most American families, chances are you'll be gathering soon with your kids, grand kids, nieces and/or nephews for an afternoon of Easter egg decorating. Why not change things up this year and create Easter eggs that you can enjoy every year? Today's project was inspired by several different graphic egg designs I've seen floating around Pinterest, mainly this one by Obviously Sweet blog. Rather than displaying them in a basket or bowl, I decided to display each one like a piece of artwork by mounting them in a painted cabinet with cubbies.

Dresser Upcycle with Labeled Drawers

My Farmhouse Modern Laundry Room is really coming along! It is such a huge change from the builder-grade boring room we started with. We've done all the work ourselves, on a teeny-tiny budget. In case you've missed anything, it all started with new paint and large diagonal floor tiles that transformed the laundry room floor. The next project was adding a Farmhouse cabinet and shelving for lots of storage.

We're taking a little break from the room itself today and looking at this dresser that I upcycled for the laundry room. Yep, even in my tiny 33 square foot space, I managed to fit a dresser!

Adding Shelves and Storage to a Builder-Grade Laundry Room

Good morning friends. If you've been following along with my Farmhouse Modern Laundry Room Redo on a budget, today is Day 2.

I already showed you how Mr DIY and I updated an ugly vinyl floor with beautiful peel and stick tiles. The floors look great...but I really couldn't wait to get going on the shelves and storage part of this makeover!

Transform a Laundry Room Floor (with Peel and Stick Tiles)

I am so excited about this project...and finally getting to share it with you! Mr DIY and I have been busy transforming our laundry room and giving it an incredible makeover on a dime!

Our laundry room is super tiny, 33 square feet. It's builder-grade (meaning the only storage was the wire shelf above the machines). And it was UGLY...vinyl floor, flat builder's paint on the walls, exposed cords and breaker box, and no personality whatsover.

DIY Easter Napkins

It was very strange putting together an Easter post in the middle of a snowstorm last week! The snow may be all melted now....but when I was writing this post, we were 'snowed in'!
