    The blue was from an oops paint gallon at home depot. I don’t know the name, but I can find the can and get the numbers on it if you like.

    Awesome! I’ve been missing your DIY posts. You are always so incredibly inventive. I love the skirted look, while the blue was pretty, I prefer the skirted. And I’m in love with the striped fabric. Another amazing job.

    I just discovered your lovely blog. I’m just new into blogging & have just finished off my own blog on fashion & interior design.
    I had a lot of fun putting it together. I would love your feedback on it if you’ve got a spare minute.

    Great DIY project. I love the way the piece turned out.
    If you want to do something decorative with the clipboards, try a little wallpaper. Check out an inspiring image at

    I love this tutorial! I also thought the clipboards above the table would be a great idea for a classroom bulletin board. I incorporated this tutorial into my latest post on my teaching blog:

    Hi Amy,

    The clipboards have a whole in them so I just used a long nail. I picked them up in staples and they are staples brand. Hope that helps!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]


Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
