7 DIYs to Try This Weekend

This is my last weekend home before heading out on a trip next week, so I’ve been working on a bunch of DIYs behind the scenes to roll out while I’m away.

For a second there, I was feeling a little impressed with myself for finally getting ahead (for once) … but THEN when I was putting together this week’s DIYs to try, I came across a DIY staircase. A freakin’ spiral STAIRCASE that is a do-it-yourself project(!!!). WTF. Clearly, I should retire at this point. But before I do, here’s 7 weekend DIYs to try…

Behind the Scenes: A Few Days in Roundtop, TX

A Few Days in Roundtop, TX
Back in July, I went on a little blogger retreat with a handful of friends and realized recently that I never got around to sharing the photos from my time there. It was a short trip, but I had such an amazing time with some very good friends that I’ve known for years AND some new friends that I’ve only recently met in person.

The whole thing took place in Round Top, Texas and with all the devastation that’s happened in Texas recently after Harvey, I thought today would (hopefully) be a good time to celebrate TX and share something a bit more uplifting.

Counter Culture: How to Resurface Laminate Countertops for Under $50

How to Resurface Laminate Countertops for Under $50
I’ve kind of skipped around a little bit on the kitchen renovation stuff. BUT when I was still thinking I should just put a band-aid on the kitchen issue (issue being that it’s ugly), I did some budget-friendly things to make it look a little better. I resurfaced the kitchen counters, added new drawer pulls, and whipped up a DIY backsplash.

And since I still hadn’t shared the tutorial for how I resurfaced the countertops (for less than $50), I figured I would share that today.

While this tutorial is more of a temporary solution for me because I’m planning to make some more expensive changes soon – which you can read about here – it’s a great budget-friendly option for anyone looking for a simple solution to their ugly laminate countertop woes. Click through to learn how to resurface laminate countertops for under $50.

Bag Hag: 10 Bags I'm Drooling Over for Fall

I’m really, really, really not quite (mentally) ready for fall. BUT now that summer is unofficially over, I wanted to get myself excited about the next season. So, I did what any normal person would do – created a shopping list of my fave bags for fall.

Sure, it’s completely unnecessary, but I like bags. Like a lot. And I felt like I couldn’t let fall start to creep in without a little seasonal accessories roundup. Here are 10 bags I’m drooling over for fall…

Before and After: A Cluttered Workspace Gets a Minimal(ish) Makeover

  |   15 comments


Continuing on with the studio makeovers, I have another one to share today! I just finished up a part of the main workspace with Ace Hardware and wanted to share the before and after with you.

It’s the first wall you see when you walk into the main space and I really wanted to make an impact. So I went with a darker color but kept the half painted wall design, so there would be some interesting contrast and a little more dimension.

As a refresher, here’s what this part of the space looked like before…
