30 Aug Before/After: Stunning Staircase Gallery Wall Transformation

The Home Depot, Society6, Ash & Ivory, and Light & Ink provided me with either product and/or compensation for this post. The opinions I have shared about the products are my own.   I'm finally posting about this gorgeous project I finished a couple weeks ago, and am convinced that everyone now needs a gallery wall on their stairs. It is empty space for many homes, but there is so much potential to make it a statement! Especially if you have vaulted ceilings near your stairs like I do, it makes for a gorgeous view into the entryway!   This is what my entry...

25 Aug Scary Changes

    I've been considering adding YouTube video tutorials to my projects moving forward, but I wanted to get your thoughts on it, really quick. Do you read more blogs or do you watch more videos? I have a hunch that you watch more videos than you read blogs just in general, but tell me what you do more of and why!   I already feel like I have no idea what I'm doing as I blog. There are so many moving parts, and I certainly have not perfected them all yet. So adding video to the mix is really daunting, I have no...

23 Aug 4 Tips You Must Follow to Create an Incredible Gallery Wall

    When it comes to making a gallery wall, there are 4 tips that everyone should follow to take your gallery art wall from "nice" to "wow, that is amazing!" And I'm putting them right here to help you make your very best gallery wall!   1.    Lighting! You need good lighting in the room, AND your wall should also have wall sconces. Why?

07 Aug DIY Electrical Splitting Made Remarkably Easy

    First things first, I am not an electrician and I don't have much experience other than this light install before this project, so if you need electrical work done in your house, you really SHOULD use a professional electrician. Electrical work really can be scary. And for good reason, too! Electricity is serious stuff, you gotta be careful! But please BE SURE TO TURN OFF YOUR ELECTRICITY before you do ANYTHING.     When I moved into this house, there was a light on the stairs that I hated with so much passion. It was hideous, and I hated the location of the...

13 Jul Six Hanging Swing Chairs You Need Now

    Hanging swing chairs are all the rage right now, and I want one in my bedroom very badly!

So, until I can get my hands on hanging one in my home, I will live through my recent client who is about to purchase and hang hers. I recently helped out Lacy of Laced Hair with picking out some hanging swing chairs, some call them a papasan, and I thought you lovelies...

12 Jul Neon Graveyard is Seriously a Must-Go

      Before I show you the gorgeous photos of the Neon Graveyard in Las Vegas, (which I'm still so so in love with) I will take a moment to remind of you of my sob story, that I promise I will not talk about it all the time. But, as you know, my boyfriend moved permanently to California a few months ago. Insert sad emoji. I'm like a broken record, I'm sorry if you've seen me in person recently, I just miss my babe a lot!!     We have been making it a priority to meet up every other weekend, whether that's one...

23 Jun Home Depot Collab: 4th of July Wood Stars

  I was honored to join forces with Home Depot again and create some custom outdoor 4th of July Stars! I feel so lucky to be able to work with them because I love their stores; I go to their store more than any other! (If you're curious how I got started working with them, I posted a short radio interview here.)     Luckily I found this amazing post from my new acquaintance Jamie that really helped give me guidance. I changed the instructions a bit to help simplify it for beginners like me, and I added a lot more photos to give really specific...
