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!
To be honest I don’t feel like I’m old enough to be an adult. And while I’m still pretty new at adulting at the age of 24 I still feel like I’m somewhere around age 17. Like I feel as though I shouldn’t have my own home or go grocery shopping every week or get to stay out as late as I want. But that’s the other funny thing, I’m also a really old soul in that a good time on Friday night to me is getting a full 8 hours of sleep.
