I have a thing for wooden signs, but the sizes that I want cost a fortune after shipping. In order to save money, I have done a few DIY Wooden Signs.
The most recent sign was a street name sign for our Foyer. If you missed my foyer reveal, a few posts back, go check it out.
Why the street name? It is significant to us, this sign will forever remind us of a dream that came true; that of owning a home!
The entryway of a home is one of the most important places, as it sets the tone for what your guest can expect the rest of your home to look and feel like. I dreamt of decorating this space from the time we signed the contract to have our home built.
Ottoman | Mirror | Rug | Pillow Cover | Bird Pillow | Feather Pillow Insert | Artificial Grass | Ombre Basket
When we finally moved in, my priorities had shifted and at some point decorating this area fell to the bottom of our to-do list. The foyer, looked so uninviting; nothing like what I had visualized.
In an effort to tackle this area of our home, I began by adding a bench. I opted for a bench over a console table because I personally feel that tables become a landing places; filled with phones, keys, toys, etc. I wanted to avoid this and the bench has actually worked perfectly. It is mostly decorative because we don’t use it much, but this means the area stays clean.
I came across so many cute holiday throw pillows and covers online this month. Unfortunately, I had a promise to keep. In my last post, I shared how I vowed not to get carried away decorating our home this year. And I planned to keep this promise. But honestly, I was feeling a little down about this, the couch needs holiday cheer (I kept telling myself). And being the DIYer that I am, I got to doing some research and was able to pull off making some DIY throw pillows. That’s right!
They are not perfect but hey I had a lot of fun making them and the family loves using them when we hang out in the living room.
I can’t believe Christmas day is only in a few days. My little one is so excited and beyond all the chaos in my head, I am too. We will be spending part of the holidays with my family and knowing this, I promised my husband not to get carried away with decorating. Surprisingly, I kept this very promise and have managed to only add a few bits of holiday cheer around our home.
I will share some of the photos I have taken. And a peek into some DIYs I was able to complete as well.
This is a partial shot of the living room, where I added throw pillows that I made. I will share a tutorial on this in a later post this week, so stay tuned. Read More
As it finally starts to cool down in Houston, I found myself remising about the warmer days of fall. And thought about sharing this fall wreath I had made.
I have to admit that I am a hoarder of materials! And this DIY was made possible by this hoarding condition! Some of the materials that I used are from a previous DIY that I will later share.
I wanted a new wreath but I wasn’t sure what I wanted or how much I wanted to spend. So, I thought about making one. And once I get an idea rolling, it’s hard to pump the breaks (my husband can attest to this). I’m a DIY-holic! Wait, is this even a term?
Back to the wreath, I couldn’t talk myself out of wanting a new wreath. I mean, my door has rocked the same fall wreath for a few years (thanks to my mamá, who gifted it to me). But I figured I could same money by repurposing this same wreath. I pulled a metal ring that I had from the previous DIY I mentioned and the wreath that my mom had given me.
