Simple Cottage Farmhouse Spring Mantel

Love this Simple Cottage Farmhouse Spring Mantel from

The last few days here in Wisconsin have been BEAUTIFUL! Temps have been in the 40’s and 50’s, the snow is melting, and it has me even more excited for Spring! What better way to welcome in this gorgeous weather than getting your Spring Mantel all decorated! I decided to go pretty simple this year because these days with 3 kids I am finding beauty

Oversized Rustic Chalkboard Tutorial

With just a few tools you can build this easy Oversized Rustic Chalkboard!

I know I have talked about my Rustic Farmhouse Entryway for what is now the 3rd post, but I had so many requests for this chalkboard tutorial I had to share it with you! I actually made this last year for my fall home tour, but my dining room still isn’t close to where I want it to be… so I decided to move it

DIY Farmhouse Bench Tutorial

With this easy to follow tutorial you can build a DIY Rustic Farmhouse Bench for under $25!

My new little entryway area has been my favorite place to look at these days. Maybe it’s because for a while it was the only spot in my house that was clean. Or maybe it was because I am just head over heels in love with my new DIY Rustic Farmhouse Bench. Either one of those works for me; ) Last week I promised I a

Rustic Farmhouse Entryway

Love this Rustic Farmhouse Entryway! That bench, those bins! I want it all!

Thank you to Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own! I have been sharing little sneak peeks of this bench on instagram all week. I’ve also been telling you that it was for my bedroom. But since at least one person in this house has been sick since Christmas and I’m the most recent victim, my bedroom

Easy to Build Kitchen Shelves

Build these easy Wooden Kitchen Shelves with just a few pieces of wood and trim. Get a quality product that costs less than store bought!

I finished my Kitchen Remodel last fall and one of the questions I got asked the most was about these Kitchen Shelves I built. I don’t have a complete tutorial because I literally built these right before I photographed my kitchen because that wall just didn’t look right. But they are super easy to make and you will probably want to build them to the

DIY Mini Wooden Ladder Tutorial

With this simple, quick, and easy DIY wooden Ladder Tutorial you can build your very own for under $5!!

Would it be weird for me to tell you that I am already working on my Spring Mantel? I know the Christmas trees literally just came down (no judgement here if yours is still up, mine normally is too but my 18 month old monster decided he held off long enough, hehe). But, let’s face it… when you live in the frozen tundra and the

DIY Boxwood Wreath Tutorial

Add a beautiful wreath to your decor that will get you through ever season with this DIY Boxwood Wreath Tutorial via

It’s the time of year where all the holiday decor comes down and the ground is still covered in snow. I know  spring cleaning is a big thing (and I make every attempt to participate in the movement) but I find the best time for me to get stuff done is during the winter right after Christmas but before spring hits. Like right now we

DIY Crate Storage Unit

I just shared with you yesterday my top 20 projects from 2014, and after the results of the reader survey I posted a few days back I have decided that not only am I going to start doing more of what I LOVE the most, but also what YOU guys want to see more of and that is building plans. But like I said yesterday…

Christmas Home Tour 2014

Take a Stroll through this Cottage Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour via

I am linking my home tour up to the Holiday House Walk Link Party with Jennifer Rizzo Good Morning all! I hope you are having a fantastic December morning! I had these intentions of showing you my full house tour, but I have been defeated by the little people in my house. Here is the reality. I have a weeks worth of dirty clothes piled

Old Fashioned Rustic Christmas Tree

Adorned with Popcorn Garland and Rustic touches, this Old Fashioned Rustic Christmas Tree will bring your family together this Christmas Season!

I’m almost done with my Christmas decorations this year and I’m so ready to check it off my list. I always try to finish everything up at the very first of December so I can sit back and enjoy my family. We did have fun with this tree though. I set my mama fears aside and let my kids use a needle to make this homemade

DIY Christmas Joy Sign Tutorial

Build this DIY Christmas Joy Sign for UNDER $15! A great addition to your Christmas Decor

When I shared my Christmas Mantel with you a few weeks ago I was most excited about this Joy Sign. It was SO much fun to build and I can’t wait to share this tutorial with you. It was by far the thing I was asked about the most! So let’s get building! Hopefully it’s not as cold outside for you as it is for

DIY Centerpiece Tray Tutorial

This beautiful Centerpiece Tray Tutorial is made from scrap wood and a thrift store frame. Come see this thrift store makeover!

Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite times of year, but let’s be honest…. it can get expensive! I am always looking to pick things up at thrift stores or garage sales. It’s a pretty bitter subject with my husband to talk about all the things we have dragged across the country because I’m “going to use that one day”. On the bright side of

Rustic Woodland Christmas Mantel

Welcome in Christmas with this beautiful Rustic Woodland Christmas Mantel

Snow has officially fallen here in Wisconsin so I don’t feel to weird about already decorating my Christmas Mantel. To be honest, this year is pretty similar to last year’s mantel, but I made few adjustments :). This year is definitely more cozy and I went with a Woodland Christmas Mantel theme. I am so excited to be sharing this mantel as part of the

Kitchen Hack: DIY Shaker Style Cabinets

With this Kitchen Hack you will be able to transform your flat doors into shaker style cabinets.

This kitchen remodel has been my biggest undertaking yet, and definitely the most fun! When we were looking to buy this house I knew without a doubt something had to be done with the kitchen. On the bright side the cabinets are solid oak and were in overall great condition, but they were coated, and I mean coated in grease. This house was a foreclosure, but I’m
