An OMBRE Pallet Project for Fall

I am convinced that pallet projects for your front porch are one of the easiest, cheapest ways to add a ton of color to your home and make a huge statement!  I had made a patriotic pallet project for the 4th of July that you can see here.  I was a little sad when I took it down, so I decided to do a new pallet project just for FALL.     I started with a pallet that I got from a new construction site. My husband, Mr. Magic, … [Read more...]

One of our sons is OBSESSED with super heroes. And I am OBSESSED with painting pumpkins.

And what is easier than circles, right? So I picked Captain America! I used one of his t-shirts as a guide on how to paint … [Read more...]

The HAPPIEST office curtains in the world…. made by the girl who CAN’T SEW

So I have been looking at FINALLY putting up curtains in my office. I haven't seen any premade curtains in stores that I love, so I've been searching on Etsy.  I stumbled across some in a fabric by Waverly named "Santa Maria Desert Flower" and I dug them. They made me super happy but they were a little pricey, so I held off on buying them. Then I saw my friend Lori from Vintage Charm Restored do a post that Hobby Lobby had that same fabric for … [Read more...]
