Sometimes it's about celebrating the small victories... Victory #1: I had an impromptu date with Mr. Pax last night.  Delicious Italian food.  No children.  Amazing. (#yayformymotherinlaw) Victory #2: I have showered this week.  Twice. (Did I mention I have three children 4 and under?)

Happy Friday!  I showed you this gorgeous basket a few weeks ago as part of my Operation Organization (more coming soon... stay tuned!).  But today, I wanted to teach you how to paint your own.  I originally shared this tutorial at Country Chic Paint Blog, but with the positive feedback I received, I thought you deserved it here, as well. ;) Almost everyone has an old basket lying around... and if you don't, you can find plenty at thrift stores for a steal.  This little tutorial on how to … [Read more...]

If you follow me on instagram, you know that I recently obtained some amazing industrial spools, and here is project number one with these bad boys: a DIY industrial spool table.  We're going to enjoy this all. fall. long.

You know how I love neutrals, especially gray.  I'm still considering seeking help for my gray addiction, in fact... but in the meantime, I'm loving my newest neutral fall decor: DIY velvet pumpkins.  In gray, naturally. ;) I've never been a huge fan of orange... or really warm colors in general.  I'm a blue/gray kind of girl, and I've loved the trend these past few years to branch out in your fall and Christmas decor, to incorporate the colors you love.

This was one of those delightfully surprising projects... the kind that comes out of a late afternoon random idea, involves digging through what I already have, experimenting with my 4 year old, and voila.  Just what I wanted for free.  Don't you just love that? In case you haven't noticed, I'm a big fan of drop cloth.  My smocked living room curtains, my roman shade in my son's room, and tons of throw pillows are all made of drop cloth.  And these no sew napkins have me singing its praises … [Read more...]
