That’s why I came up with this recipe for the perfect caramel iced coffee. It’s my favorite thing to enjoy during my morning commute to work while I listen to audible (currently Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban).

The entryway of your home greets you as you walk in the door. It’s the place where you hang your hat, tired from a long day of work. It should be warm and inviting as if it’s actually saying “Welcome home!” with a smile. The problem Our entryway was always one of those areas I just couldn’t “figure out.” This is partially because our last place didn’t have an entryway and this was the first time I decorated one. I…

DIY Board and Batten Wall

July 1, 2017

The room was painted in a pretty greige, but it blended too much with our oatmeal headboard. The space didn’t feel cozy or warm, and although I tried many different styles of decor in there, nothing seemed to really suit us. I had thought about doing…

This weekend I decided I wanted to add a little pizzazz to my office area by making a sparkly candle holder. Here is what I used: My empty candle.

How To Driftwood Stain (Without Really Staining)

July 19, 2015

I love a good DIY, and Ikea has some great stuff begging to be fixed up. There are countless hacks on how to take the inexpensive furniture and turn it into something more custom. Also, I have had this dresser for a LONG time. It has been a great dresser, but unfortunately, it no longer fit my decor. So, I decided to give it a little face lift, and I love the way it turned out! I didn’t have a…
