How to Change Up Your Wood Framed Sign- for less than $5!

So I have to admit, this is probably one of my more genius ideas. And I’m just so glad it worked! I love, I mean really love a good wood framed sign. Every good farmhouse has one and they make me feel like I’m channeling my inner Joanna Gaines. My main problem with them? Well maybe it’s no so much my problem with the sign as it is my own problem, but I don’t like that you can’t change them up with out replacing the sign entirely and well they typically run around $50. Not overly expensive but not super cheap either. Luckily in my stroke of genius I figured out a way to change up all of our wood framed signs and the best part is it’ll cost you about $5 (maybe even a little less)!

DIY Olive Branch Wreath

I have to admit I have a love affair. With wreaths. Boxwood, Magnolia, Eucalyptus. I’ll take one of each please! I don’t actually have all of them in my home but that’s mostly because for a normal size you’re looking at spending $40 or more (usually more). Even the smaller sizes are around $20. But when I came across these olive branches on sale I couldn’t pass them up for an easy DIY olive branch wreath! And good news it cost me less than a premade one!

The Easiest DIY Laundry Room Shelves

One of the best things that’s ever come about in our marriage is that we’re laundry divorced. What exactly do I mean by that? I mean that my husband does his own laundry and I do mine (and the rest of the house). Once we got married he just kept on doing his laundry, he never asked me to and I never offered. It works for us and I plan to keep it that way. That’s just one less thing one my to do list! And while laundry isn’t necessarily one of the task I totally dread, I am doing it with a little bit more of a skip in my step ever since we put up these easy DIY laundry room shelves!

Hale Navy Painted Hutch Makeover

painted hutch hale navy diy

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.

Lessons in Quilt Making

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.
