After sharing this guest bedroom / home office makeover, I got a question about the DIY curtain rod. And actually, many people commented about it who came through on the show house tour as well. I hadn’t thought much of sharing how I made it before because I just threw it together last-minute.
But when I was asked about it again, I decided to share a quick tutorial because it is probably the most affordable curtain rod you could possibly have – at under $10 it’s even cheaper than the crappiest version you could buy at a discount store. AND looks 100 times better.
Admittedly, my home office is more often than not in need of organization, so any chance I get to tame the clutter I’ll take. And because there’s no time like the present, I pulled together a few things from my craft closet to dream up an Ikea hack (that’s actually worth doing imo) to help keep my desk organized and looking cute.
I made the DIY drawer pulls from scratch and the end result is an elevated addition to Ikea’s extremely popular MOPPE mini storage chest (that costs less than $20)! Click through for the tutorial.
It’s a DIY desk project! When it comes to do-it-yourself projects, I think wood is probably one of my absolute favorite materials to work with. Admittedly, I’m far (FAR) from a wood craftsmen, but from a DIY point of view, I know my way around a handful of (the less intimidating) power tools.
So, today I’m sharing how to build a minimal modern desk with storage compartments, from scratch (no design plans or anything), for under $100 and just a handful of tools / supplies. And you can do it too! I promise. Just click through for the tutorial and you’ll be on your way in no time.
We all have a pair of shoes in the back of our closet that could use a little TLC right? I know I have more than one pair that have been collecting dust, just waiting for the perfect DIY to come along. And guess what? The perfect shoe DIY has come along…in fact, there are 12 of ’em!

Before Hayes was born we traveled A LOT…like every single month for a solid year with the 12 trips in 12 months series and at least every few months before that series and after it…until we had a baby that is. We felt like we needed to slow down the travel a little bit around the time Hayes was born, with just a couple of quick trips before he was six months old, to see family in New York and Jacksonville. BUT now that we (kinda) have our bearings with the parenting thing, travel is back on our radar in a big way.
Starting with a trip to Turks and Caicos with our closet friends (Ashley, Kelly, Lexy)…and all of the husbands and kiddos. It was relaxing and crazy all rolled into one with five kids and eight adults…for a total of thirteen people if you’re counting. We stayed at the all-inclusive family resort, Beaches Turks and Caicos, and I’m sharing all the details (and a whole lot of drool-worthy beach photos) today!
