    This is such a good idea! Do you do anything special to the ribbon before you attach it to the curtain? A glue gun works?

    Yup, just a standard glue gun. I used to do hem tape, but that would take forever. The glue gun works perfectly!

    Thank you for this information. I have had difficulty locating good quality ribbon, and appreciate this source. Love, love grosgrain.

    Hi! I love the look of these. Do you have a go to for inexpensive white curtains? I’ve been thinking of doing something similar and heard ikea panels work well but I’d love to hear another opinion! Thanks!

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, […]

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 […]
