Need a weekend project? This potato stamp tutorial is a fun way to add some pattern to fabric (or paper) to customize something plain or just refresh something you already have in your space. I made this cotton curtain panel from fabric yardage to fit the specific size of the... Continue reading

Tiffany, It's tricky finding a plain cotton curtain, huh! I usually just buy cotton fabric by the yard and hem the edges to make my own. Good luck in your search, though! Maybe try an IKEA if you have one near you?
THanks, Chantel!

It's from Ikea. We bought the natural wood version and have painted it twice now.

Sweet little Ruby has one of the coolest rooms in our house but it sat in a sad state for over a year. I knew I'd have a little more project-focused time after the holidays so I started planning a few minor adjustments to make her space feel more special.... Continue reading

Sharing the easiest statement necklace DIY you'll ever make over at A Beautiful Mess today. After taking a few months off to write my DIY Weaving book, I'm so happy to be sending projects out into the crowds through their platform. Those ladies are dolls and they have a great... Continue reading

Ms. Megan, Yes! A little retro, a little magical, a little whimsy...Thanks!
Thanks! I'm so happy with them. ;)
Leah, let me double check and get back to you. I know it was the HGTV brand of paint in a sample size but not sure which shade of blue we ended up with. Hold that thought....

As a house-renter that has lived in nine different spaces in the last fourteen years, I'm well-versed in the ways to make your home feel as much a reflection of your style as you can within the usual renter restrictions. I'd been hearing people talk about the removable wallpaper and... Continue reading

Forgive me for posting a Christmas House Tour a full three weeks after said holiday but there were A LOT of photos taken to document what ended up being the cleanest our house has been all year. A girl has to have some proof of that kind of magic! Some... Continue reading

Hello 2016! With my DIY weaving book coming out in the fall, I thought it was only fitting to start the year off with a relatively simple woven wall hanging DIY that adds a ton of texture and dimension to your space and won't take all weekend to make! I... Continue reading

It's the time of year to be reflecting on the last twelve months and thinking about what we want in the next twelve. I used to scoff at goals but this year has taught me how powerful they are in drawing you closer to who you want to become. I've... Continue reading

It's almost impossible to not make something each Christmas to either fill an empty space in a new rental or satisfy a slight shift in tastes! As I was pulling out boxes and boxes of Christmas decor and deciding what should make an appearance this year, I got really nostalgic... Continue reading

Every year I strive to be better at presenting presents with just as much enthusiasm as if I were a hybrid of Santa and Martha Stewart but once I get to taping them off, I just end up writing the recipient's name in sharpie somewhere directly on the wrapping paper.... Continue reading

We celebrated six years with our sweet Ruby a few weeks ago and never before have I felt like she's actually looked and acted so much older than this time. Suddenly those legs are so long, her bangs have finally grown out, her baby teeth are coming out two at-a-time,... Continue reading

The holiday season is usually full of events to document, but we have an extra one thrown in with a birthday the week after Halloween. Just when we figure out our rhythm with school being in session, someone hits fast forward and suddenly we're two holidays down and two major ones to go. High camera phone quality makes it a little easier to capture all of the fun without holding... Continue reading
