One Room Challenge: Master Bedroom Makeover

One Room Challenge: Master Bedroom Makeover

Thsi is my first time doing the One Room Challenge and I couldn’t be more excited to make over my bedroom! This room is ALWAYS cluttered. It seems everything gets thrown in here. My bedroom is literally my room, the baby’s room, and the dog’s room all in one. Someone send help!

But really, making this room over has been on my to-do list for a while. In fact, I’ve already started painting! Some new decor and new paint while showcasing our bed as a centerpiece will for sure create a to-die-for bedroom oasis.

Check out what my ideas are for this bedroom!

Y’all know I love the modern farmhouse look mixed with a little coastal. My theme for this bedroom is still mostly “farmhouse,” with a touch of mid-century (stepping out of my comfort zone but my eye always goes to this style) but I do want it to be a relaxing space for us to retreat to at night. I love bright rooms with lots of sunlight, so creating a room that is warm, but bright is important to me!

Here’s my idea board!

I have a new sign to go above my bed from Hobby Lobby I can’t wait to share! I have this white comforter set from Target!

Clipped Chenille Comforter & Sham Set – Threshold™ : Target

But I also have this grey duvet cover… I will probably use both of them!

Next, I am going to spray paint my current curtain rods black! I will buy the wall lights and new baskets for the built ins that are already in my room.

Here are the links to the lights and baskets!

This is my headboard!

We have about 5 weeks left in this challenge and I still have so much work to do! I’ve already started painting and I refinished my two end tables! I’m excited to see it come together!

My bedroom now…

Dollar Tree Spring Decor

Dollar Tree Spring Decor

This is a budget friendly post about how to take some cheap $1 items from Dollar Tree and make them look super cute in your home for spring!

First I bought speckled egg garland and since one strip was not very long I bought two and tied them together!

I added this new and improved garland to a cute $10 boxwood garland from Target to make the perfect spring garland for my mantle.

Next I took the larger eggs and some pale yellow Easter grass and filled a clear jar with them! I added some faux florals and made a cute spring vase!

Lastly, I took two $1 vases from Dollar Tree and added some smaller eggs from one string of garland which I just cut to let the eggs loose, added some eucalyptus stems and set them on my tv stand for another spring touch!

And that’s it! I have beautiful spring touches that match my neutral decor, all for under $20! Now if Spring would just hurry up and arrive!!

I CUT MY OWN HAIR! An easy diy hair how-to!

I CUT MY OWN HAIR! An easy diy hair how-to!

You read that right. And yes it’s as scary as it sounds! But it is actually super easy!

I’ve been cutting my own hair since the pandemic started! And now I’m just at the point where it’s just about convenience now with 4 kiddos here and being a full-time sahm and business owner!

You can do it too!

To trim my hair:

I separate my hair into 4 parts and put them in hair ties. I slide the hair tie all the way down to the tips leaving about two inches from the hair tie to the tips.

Then I decide how much I want to take off and cut. I do this to all 4 parts. Then I take one part out and the next part out and compare. Using my first section as a guide, I make sure it’s even. Then I use the second section as a guide for the third section and so on.

To cut bangs:

I gather the amount of hair I want to the front making a round hair part around my forehead. Then I hold it all together and cut at my nose.

Then I cut a little more. Finally, I turn the scissors vertical and just snip the ends randomly.

On the sides I make sure to tier it down to my face.

It doesn’t have to be hard but you just have to take the plunge!!!

Christmas Advent Calendar for the Whole Family

Christmas Advent Calendar for the Whole Family

We’ve been home for months now. We are halfway through our first year of homeschooling and I think the kids are in a slump. No one has any motivation and the weather is getting colder. We aren’t getting as much fresh air. But the holidays are among us and with them comes a little excitement!

I decided to do an advent calendar this year and I let the kids help decide what we will be doing each day! It’s a fun way to get them involved and frankly, get the tween and teen off their phones for a little bit.

So here’s the full list of things we will do for the next 24 days!

Make paper snowflakes

Make a gingerbread house

Watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

Making Christmas cards for the nursing home

Print Christmas coloring pages

Wrap gifts

Gather canned goods for needy families

Go see Christmas lights

Make gingerbread house flower pots

Also I have attached the image we used to print for our “Countdown to Christmas” board as well as the Christmas lightbulb printable!

Find a cute spot in your house – maybe it’s on a bulletin board or on the fridge! Make a visual so the kids can see it and have something to look forward to every day!

DIY Farmhouse Curtains

DIY Farmhouse Curtains

So you’ve been on Pinterest and seen those amazing farmhouse curtains right??! The ones that look a little like burlap… the oh so natural looking… the perfect shade of neutral… yes those! Well if you search them online you will find that they are not only pretty, but they are pretty pricey! Here’s how you can get the same look for a fraction of the cost!

Paint drop cloths!!!! These are a super affordable option for farmhouse curtains!

I purchased two of these from amazon for $11.99 a piece. One drop cloth creates two panels so you’ll need just one per window. That definitely beats paying $40-60 per window for panels!

Here’s the link for the drop cloths:

Ok next you need curtain hooks! I also purchased these from amazon! Here’s the link:

These came in a pack of 24 so this covered 2 windows. I used 6 clips per panel.

Next I washed and dried the drop cloths. I added some bleach to lighten them a tad. Then I laid them out and cut them down the middle crease. So these drop cloths had the seam running 6ft rather than 9ft. So the curtains show the seam in the middle as you will see in my photos. However, when I made these again for my living room, I bought my drop cloths from Lowe’s and the seam ran 9ft so I was able to cut along the seam! You can also purchase seamless drop cloths too!

I did not sew the edges because I put the cut edges to the outside of the window and they aren’t really seen. However you could sew these to keep from fraying if you’d like. I don’t sew and as cheap as they are, if they fall apart I’ll just replace! I also am not opening and closing these curtains so in theory they won’t be touched.

Next I folded the tops over and clipped with the clips. Lastly, I hung them up!

Take a look!

All in all these curtains for two windows cost me $36! Since then I’ve also made them for my living room windows and they look amazing! Now you can make them too!
