DIY Door Signs

Monday, February 15th, 2016

Sarah has been wanting signs on her doors for a really long time and has been on the hunt at all of our favorite stores.
Of course she came up with the cutest DIY signs to make herself, that took no time at all and only cost a few dollars each!

She found these little plaques at Hobby Lobby.

They cost $2.99 for a 4-pack.

She gave each plaque two coats of chalkboard paint (any brand will work).

Next she used THIS fine tip chalkboard pen to write her signs.

She used our favorite command strips HERE to attach to doors.

These look so great in person!

We love little ways to personalize our homes, especially easy projects like these!

Em’s House: Adding Buffalo Check

Monday, October 26th, 2015

A good black and white buffalo check is one of my favorite things this fall!

It seems THIS fabric was out of stock foreveeer at my local Ikea,
so I snatched it up in a heartbeat when I saw it store a few weeks ago!

A newly covered notice board and a few pillow can really change things up, in the best of ways.

All hail to the buffalo check! Who’s with me?!

Monday, September 21st, 2015

There is NOTHING we love more than a simple project that turns the ordinary into something special!

While scrounging through our fall decorating tubs we found lots of loose pine cones begging to become something!

Mini Flower Arrangements

Monday, May 18th, 2015

Happy Monday! We hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready to tackle the week?!

Today we’re sharing the easiest centerpiece idea that can double as a party favor to make any get together a little more special…

We love how these mini arrangements look clustered together as well as how cute they are individually to give as a favor at the end of the evening.

To create this look we bought three bouquets from Walmart for $5 each. We then gathered all our random glass jars. You know the ones…spaghetti sauce, baby food etc jars. You can even just use little plastic cups if you don’t have glass. Then we just clipped the stems and divided between jars…zero floral arranging skills needed!

We made 20 arrangements averaging less than $1 each!

Pretty, thrifty AND organizing our jar cupboard…win, win, win!
