DIY After Sun Spray

Summertime…filled with swimming, camping, bonfires, cookouts, s’mores, and sunburns! 😬 As someone who has dealt with skin cancer issues in the past, I usually do my best to just avoid direct sun exposure. And as a mom, I do my best to make sure my kiddos have sunblock on before heading out to swim or…

    I tried to use the discount code at Public Goods, but it says it’s not valid. Any ideas?ReplyCancel

      Oh no! We just sent an email in to the company to find out why. Hopefully we’ll get it fixed ASAP! Sorry!ReplyCancel

      We just heard back – they had some delays with updating codes, but said we should be good to go now and you should be able to receive the discount now. So sorry!ReplyCancel

Modern Storage Cabinet Hack

It feels like forever since I’ve repurposed or refinished something I’ve thrifted but living really close to a ReStore out here in Colorado always has me in there looking for inspiration for new pieces. I had been looking for a small bookshelf that I could make doors for to turn into a storage cabinet but…

    I simple love this statement wall, what an amazing use of crates and surprisingly it doesn’t look too busy, it just looks really chic and clean, if i didn’t already have boxes on my lounge wall i would do this in a heart beat. Fantastic!!ReplyCancel

    Where did you get the crates?ReplyCancel

    • MandaWednesday, July 3, 2019 - 10:42 am

      Ours are from Home Depot, but we found that it’s actually cheaper to order at Michaels (online) and use a coupon – you can get a good discount on them that way! 🙂ReplyCancel

Our Living Room Update

    It looks great! Can you talk about your TV situation. Do you not have one? Is it hidden? Ours is currently the focal point of our room and I’d like for it to go away 🙂ReplyCancel

      Thanks Haley, glad you like it! 🙂 We moved our TV into the family room, my boys are pretty much the only ones that use it. It used to be in the cabinet, and I liked that I could close the doors and not see it. It’s hanging on the wall in our family room right now, and I’m hating that. Once we’re ready to tackle re-doing that room, I’ll probably need to come up with some way to hide it. I think if you have room for a cabinet, it’s a nice way to hide them. We just drilled a small hole in the back of our cabinet that the cord could fit through, and hung the TV on the back of the cabinet the same way you’d hang it on the wall, so it was fairly easy to do. But I know sometimes it’s hard to find a cabinet you like that’s big enough to fit a TV…ReplyCancel

DIY Beer Can Planters

Father’s Day is coming up and I always try to brainstorm a couple DIY projects that maybe a dad would appreciate. (I usually fail…) Whenever I search for ideas it seems that the only Father’s Day gifts are sports team or alcohol related… ha! But my Dad doesn’t really partake in either of those things…

    This is such a cute idea! Definitely going to share with our residents as a creative way to upcycle La Croix cans as well!ReplyCancel

  • Kirsten HumpferSunday, June 16, 2019 - 6:00 am

    That is such a great and good looking idea that everyone can try. I´ll definitely will do that in the future when I finally get some plants! xx KirstenReplyCancel
