    Spring Mantel and Spring Decor

    Hey there friends! Thanks for the love on the DIY spring wreath. Today I’m going to share where I put it and how some of the rest of the house looks after I spruced it up for spring! Do you decorate for holidays, for seasons, or both? I do both. But, in the spring and summer it’s really more about the season than any particular holiday. So, it’s about the colors and the feel of our home.

    Woodland Christmas Mantel

    I have been loving all the green and white I’ve been seeing this year in Christmas decor. So simple, natural, and pretty! And…I love trees! So, that was the inspiration for my Christmas mantel this year!!

    New Laminate Floors in the Family Room

    It’s finally time!! If you follow me on Instagram then you know we replaced the carpet in our family room and hallway with laminate flooring a few weeks ago. This is a project that has been on our list since we moved in, but it just kept getting bumped by other things. But, we finally got it to the top of the list, they are done, and we love them!! Here is the before for reference.

    From Retro to Fab – DIY Ottoman Makeover

    Hey there friend!! Today, I am bringing you a much anticipated DIY! Well, maybe much anticipated by me and maybe even my family, but I’m sure you will enjoy it as well! A while back a friend gifted me with these lovely ottomans. I knew from the start that I would recover them, but at the time I didn’t have a place to put them.

    Summer Styled Bookshelves

    Hey there! How are ya?? I have to be honest, styling bookshelves used to intimidate me. Like for real. I was awful at it. But, over the years, I’ve learned a thing or two from people who seemed to be naturals at it, and now I think I’m not too bad. HA!! I also have to admit that I hadn’t touched our bookshelves in our family room for several years. Aside from adding in and taking out a few seasonal items here and there, they stayed basically the same. Here are some before pics that I had to hunt for, because I have become a terrible blogger in that I keep forgetting to take before pics!! (not great quality because they are phone pics and not meant to be before pics haha)
