Disclaimer: I have not been in a dorm room for…. a while. And when I WAS in a dorm room, my decor consisted of precisely 3 items: an old Claude Monet poster with holes all around the corners from past thumb tacks, a duvet I sewed from a twin sheet, and an old white wicker trunk. It sounds stellar, right? Thankfully, we’ve come a LONG way in dorm room decor… Today I have my suggestions for what to look for to make your dorm room look RAD. (Are the kids still using that word?)
The exterior of our house was one of the first things I fell in love with! Classic details… columns… dental trim… and just a hint of rot. Lots and lots of rot. Grrrr. The previous owners had allowed the trees and bushes to hang over the porches which meant years of snow and rain just sitting on the wood. See how I made over both porches in a weekend!
It’s no secret that my love for macrame runs deep. When I picked up some rope last year to add some inexpensive decor to our new dining room… the knots came right back to me! I’ve since taught some macrame classes so I figured it was about time to post a macrame how to and share some of my favorites here on the blog!
For those of you who have been reading this blog for a bit… then you know my love for concrete runs deep. Whether a planter or an orb or another planter… it’s the perfect materials for DIYers: inexpensive and chic! For this month’s DIY Housewives post, we’re all sharing garden inspiration so I wanted to remind you about this fountain I made (and ADORE).
When we moved into this house a couple of years ago, Louisa was still in a crib! She had her own cute little room and Martha got a palace! Louisa’s room transitioned her from a crib into a bed, but it was TIGHT. And Martha’s room got a few little changes like a corner desk area, but not a lot of attention. Until NOW.
