How-Tos and Inspiration
Mother's Day is just around the corner and if you're looking for a great last minute DIY gift idea you'll love this one. My husband framed a painting done by one of my daughters.
I usually start a painting project by shopping for colors, either looking at paint swatches from a DIY store or flipping through a color fan borrowed from a paint shop.
The other day I was hanging some picture frames in a bathroom and despite all my careful calculations, my frames didn't line up. I couldn't believe it! What happened?
I love sharing tips and tricks with our blog readers - this simple tip will save you time and potential mistake holes too. When hanging more than one picture frame, start by placing your frames on the floor to figure out the best possible arrangement.
Hanging three picture frames in a perfectly straight row is easier than you think. This is the perfect type of wall arrangement to hang above a long piece of furniture such as a dining table, a hutch or a headboard because the art mimics the shape of the furnishings below. Here's what I did.
If you're cringing at the thought of using fake snow in your house because you think it's tacky, I'm hoping that this post will change your mind. Sometimes, all is needed is a little fake snow to get that perfect winter wonderland look.
If you’re expecting guests for dinner over the weekend and you want to dress up your dining table, here’s a look that is simple, gorgeous, and very easy to replicate.
Every year, after the Labor Day long weekend my kids and I pick hundreds of pine cones that have fallen on the beach. I use them to decorate around the house; they add a warm cozy feel of autumn to the space and they’re free!

One of our co-workers just had a baby. Him and his wife are beyond thrilled. It's their first baby and he's super excited to be celebrating his first Father's Day.
Ten minutes is all it took to create a tulip garden to define a small space into a drop zone perfect for a purse, shoes and sunnies.
Spring is the perfect time to freshen up your décor with brighter, softer colors. Pastels seemed like the perfect choice for this DIY wall art project. By simply swapping out the existing artwork in frames I already had, I created a soft delicate palette for my walls.
Empty frames are such a creative and chic way to dress up your walls, all without spending any money on actual artwork. Once the frames are painted they become art themselves — think of it as instant Wall Art.
Since we eat with our eyes first, I always like to create a good first impression by dressing up my dining table with an eye-catching centerpiece.
Art doesn’t have to be expensive. You can make your own one-of-a-kind pieces just like I did in this easy DIY wall display. The best part is that you can customize your art to fit your style, décor and most importantly your budget.
