DIY Pillows from Drapes


As some of you might know, I work at Pottery Barn part-time. So as you could imagine, I'm always looking at all of the beautiful things and wondering how I can use them in my house. I found these beautiful drapes that I just loved the fabric. I thought..."hmmm these would make some beautiful pillows! And for a fraction of the price of buying actual pillow covers."

DIY Bench

My parents had this old wooden box sitting in their garage that they no longer wanted. And knowing not to throw things away before asking me if I want them, they offered it to me and I thought I could do something cool with it.

Hutch Makeover

I had been looking for a hutch to add to our home for a little more than a year. The perfect one (with the perfect price tag) was hard to find! I came across this one on OfferUp for $40! and I snagged it up quickly. It needed a lot of work but I could see it's potential.


What other techniques do you use to distress furniture? I'd love to hear, leave me a comment!

Christmas Home Tour


Each year I look forward to decorating our home for Christmas. It's such a wonderful time of year full of special moments that we hold onto all year long. The week of Thanksgiving I usually start putting out a few small holiday decorations (and my husband puts up the outdoor lights), then over the next two weeks I continue bringing things out of storage. It's a process, especially if you have little ones like we do. Trying to get anything done takes a lot of concentration and many attempts. I hope you enjoy walking though our home with me...

Thanksgiving Tablescape


This morning I did my grocery shopping for Thanksgiving, and along my travels to various stores I came across the most beautiful fresh garland from Trader Joes. It inspired me to create my Thanksgiving Tablescape.

Fall Tablescape

We live in the desert, so when the seasons start to change in the rest of the country and everyone is enjoying the gorgeous weather.....we all (try to) wait patiently for it to start to feel like fall here. I usually try to wait to start decorating for autumn until the middle of September. This year for fall, I decided to go with a slightly different color scheme than the traditional red, orange, gold and brown. I'm using white, light green, gold and cream.
