I’ve already been planning out my goals for the new year and I’ll be sharing more on that later on but for now, let’s see what inspired you the most in 2013!

Nah… all you need is a little spray paint and about 5 minutes! My kinda DIY!!

I’m so excited to finally get to share my DIY clock that I’ve been working on for the home office makeover. I’ve been searching for a large clock and finally found the look I wanted, but at a hefty price tag. Hefty like $279! Uh, yeah. No way I can squeeze that in the budget no matter what excuse I come up with. So I made my own version of my favorite Pottery Barn clock for only $20!
I can never seem to find a drink coaster around here when I need one. So last time I was in Hobby Lobby I spotted some cork coasters for less than $2.00 with my coupon! Grab a little craft paint and some stencils! We are making our own drink coasters today! [Please click to continue reading...]

It’s even better when they are actually in their place when I need them! Who doesn’t want to be more organized, right? So in my efforts to create an organized work space in the home, I decided I to incorporate some vintage wire baskets.
I found these nice shiny black baskets at HomeGoods for about $3 each. Perfect style, but not so perfect finish. So I grabbed my spray paint and craft paints and went to work. [Please click to continue reading...]
