I wanted to share with you a quick and easy tip to brighten up your laundry room!  You could actually do this for any room . . think of an item that is used and stored that could be displayed as art! 

I got a new cover for my ironing board from Compelled to Craft on etsy and hung a $1 hook for a quick and inexpensive transformation!  Take a look:

Enjoy!  Now go create . . .

A Sneak Peek!

I am so excited to share with you a big event in my design world!  HGTV show house showdown came to Boise, ID today and I was there!!!

This is the party that I came upon:

Now I will share with you a few shots that I snapped to get you excited about the episode that will air soon!  p.s. my husband and I were taped so we could just be on TV!!  HGTV design star here I come . . well maybe :)

Now inside . . I Loved this house:
Now aren't you excited to see the rest!

I just loved the barnwood backsplash behind the bed, the arranged frames, the wall paper and the stripes!  The stripes actually reminded me of my stripes in my bedroom:

Hint:  I added white to the extra wall paint to make the different shades on each stripe. It adds more dimension and a subtle graphic pop on the wall.

Then after all the fun I came home to my favorite place . . and when I walked in I was taken over by the scent I love so much and remembered "there is no place like home".

So for another favorite thing:
my scentsy!

"home sweet home" is my favorite scent and you can order it here.

Another sunday afternoon well enjoyed!  Hope you were inspired!

Kitchen Baskets

What do you do with the space above your kitchen cabinets?  I have asked the same question!  How I wish my cabinets reached the ceiling. I feel there is so much space wasted that could be used for storage.  Well I came up with an idea that will heighten my cabinets and provide the eye with decorative storage!

Its amazing at how taller my cabinets look with the baskets!  It will look so much better once my cabinets are white . . but thats another project coming soon!


Now for the winner
of this weeks give-a-way!

Stay posted as there are more give-a-ways to come!

DIY: Kitchen Towels

DIY: Kitchen Towels

I have been on the hunt for cute kitchen towels for a while.  Unfortunately I was let down with what the stores had. . so I decided to make my own!

I also have been wanting to try the new Martha Stewart craft line at Micheals so that became my jumping off point.  Here is what i came up with: 

Using the Martha Stewart stencils and fabric paint made this so easy. I just added some bright fabric to keep the towels soft.  I used Williams-Sanoma all purpose white towels because they are my fav. My creative juices are already flowing to re-create this at christmas time.  A great gift idea! 
I hope you were inspired! 

Also check me out on:

Knock off Decor!
a project of mine was featured!
I am so flattered. .
