Bar Stool Chair Makeover

This post is sponsored by the Leather Hide Store. However, these opinions that are 100% my own, and based on my personal experience using their amazing products.

DIY: Patriotic Etched Mason Jars

This Monday marks the beginning of one of the best American pastimes: Summer holiday BBQ season! What do you need to go with good food and the company of friends and family? Homemade decor of course!

Mason jars seem to be like leather; they never go out of style! But how do you keep your ideas with what to do with them fresh and unique? My grandmother works at a stained glass company, and they sell a product called Armor Etch. It’s super easy to use, and it makes a frosted texture on the glass that you put it on.

The wonderful place where you go for one thing and end up with a full cart of everything under the sun. The place where you can spend hours and leave still feeling like you missed something. The place where a lovely $1/$3 aisle greets you at the door. My struggle with Target is very real; especially since there is one right down the street!

DIY Pallet Sign

My husband brought home some wood this past summer from a coworker’s old fence, and its been sitting in our room collecting dust. I saw the pallet signs back on Pinterest a while ago and thought what a fun and cheap craft. I love the level of customization that comes with DIY projects like these. You can literally do anything to the wood, and you’re left with a beautiful piece to accent your home. Getting into the Spring season, I rediscovered the planks of wood and decided to take on the project.

Simple Spring Decor

Spring is finally here! It’s time to kick the winter blues, and there is no better way than decorating for the season!

But where do you start? When I was little and it was time to decorate for the seasons, we went into the storage closet and took out the cardboard box that had ” Spring” written on it in black magic marker. The only problem with that now is that we are trying to adult but we don’t have a box of decorations yet!

The craft store seemed like a logical place to start. Luckily, we arrived just as the store was stocking for summer decor, so all the remaining spring items were marked at an insane deal of 60% off. That, plus a trip to the local dollar store, found us with everything we needed to make these simple but eye-catching decorations.
