Home Decor

I think I have enough ornaments for several large trees and since our tree is tiny…I have lots of extra ornaments to get crafty with! My dining room table is 60″ x 80″ – that’s the same size as a queen sized mattress. It’s massive and I LOVE it. (My Dad made it for us, […]

This is our first Christmas in our new house and our decorations were looking a little sparse. So we had to improvise. This is one of my favorite spontaneous decorations so far! I cut curling ribbon in varying lengths and tied an ornament to each end, then draped them over some convenient little hooks on […]

One board is a must – three separate is just too busy and complicated. Version 2 chore chart had good potential […]

    My son’s new bedroom has two huge windows. The whole wall is window, which I love. But buying curtains to cover that much window? Yeesh. So for just under $70 I made 4 panels (54″ x 54″). I could have purchased curtains for less than this but they wouldn’t have been the exact color to […]

I found this rug at Target and I loved it for my office, only it’s 5×7, way too big to fit. So I cut it in half. With scissors. Ack! It was one of those Here Goes… kind of projects but it worked out so great. Using the pattern as a guide, I cut the […]

Remember my foam ball wreath? Well…I made it to hang from this curtain rod above our piano (an idea I found on Pinterest). Thoughts? I think I need maybe some more greenery to wrap around or something else entirely. I also need to do something on the walls on either side of the wreath but […]
