This hutch is a goodie y’all! It is at least 60 years old and it makes me so happy! I just love pieces that have a story. Turns out this hutch has a great one and it’s dear to my heart! My maternal grandmother got this hutch when her and my grandfather first started “keeping house”. I’m not totally positive if they received it new or if it was passed down to them.
I can’t believe it but I actually made a quilt! I’ve wanted to make one probably since around 2014. No idea why, I just always thought it would be neat to make one. There’s just something cozy about a homemade quilt. This is not a tutorial by the way because when I say I pretty much had no idea what I was doing, I mean it. A good friend of mine has a mother-in-law who quilts and she showed her how to make one. Once she had made one I had her show me how and then pretty much text her for every step as I was making it! Bless you Lexi! But I actually got more than I bargained for with this project of mine.
While I was nesting and preparing for Cora Beth I got a little diy crazy! But in my swollen, exhausted pregnant self I had NO energy to blog so I’m finally getting around to sharing the smaller details of her nursery! While most of Cora Beth’s clothes are kept in her dresser I keep her nicer outfits in her closet! And I wanted some dividers to help separate the sizes but I didn’t want to buy any so I created these printable nursery closet dividers! The floral ones were made to go with Cora Beth’s floral nursery but I didn’t want to forget the boy mamas! Fingers crossed I’ll get to use the boy ones one day!
For some reason in Cora Beth’s baby book under holidays there’s a picture slot for Cinco de Mayo! While I usually go eat Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo it isn’t really a holiday I thought I’d have to document during my baby’s first year of life! I’m not one to leave a space blank though. So I figured if we’re going to celebrate why not go big! Go big or go home right? To help with the celebration I made this DIY Fiesta Banner to hang up!
We bought our house 3 years ago this month and looking back on the before pictures of this bathroom really shows how far we’ve come and how much my style has evolved! After I painted my kitchen cabinets white I knew I’d want to paint the bathroom cabinets one day and I’m so excited that 1 of 2 is now done! While I would love to replace the vanity entirely we just can’t afford that but I think the painted bathroom cabinets makes a huge difference!
I won’t lie, one of my favorite things about being a girl mom is the outfits and the bows! Just give me everything pink and girly! While I don’t put a bow on Cora Beth every day (mostly because we’re hanging out in our pjs 5 out of 7 days a week) when I do I have to use headbands since little miss doesn’t quite have a whole lot of hair yet! And if you’ve shopped for bows you know they can get pricey pretty quick! I did buy one white and one black bow from Baby Bling Bows because I love them! But they can look a tad big on her little bitty head so I sometimes opt for a smaller bow! I set out to make my own to save a little money and since I was successful I wanted to share with y’all how to diy a simple baby bow headbands for you to make your little one!
Have you ever really wanted to take on a project but you’re kind of afraid so you just read about 5,376 tutorials on Pinterest and try to give yourself a pep talk? And then you finally go for it and you pull it off and you do a little happy dance every time you see said project? That’s exactly how I feel after I painted and stained my kitchen table!
Welcome to part three of an unintentional series, I’ve just gone a bit chalk paint crazy! Today is a dining chair I picked up at the Nashville Flea Market… in July. If you’re doing the math then yes it did sit in my garage for more than 6 months. I’m pretty well known for that. But I finally got around to sprucing this bad boy up!
