DIY Industrial Curtain Rod

Good morning! Today we’re sharing space with Sarah at Making Joy and Pretty Things and adding to yesterday’s drop cloth curtain tutorial. If you stopped by yesterday, you know I was getting so frustrated looking for curtains that were ‘high and wide’. Adding insult to injury, finding a curtain rod that fit with our style and wasn’t over our budget seemed nearly impossible. I stumbled across a great tutorial on ...

12 Days of Craftsmas: Mason Jar Sugar Scrub

Jumping on the bandwagon that Lora started on day five with her lovely bath bombs, today I am sharing a DIY Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub.

Project Update: Fall & Winter 2016

It’s fall! The leaves are starting to change colors here in Minnesota, the nights are getting cool and the best of all, the mosquitoes are tapering down. I cannot tell you how nice it is to be able to head outside our house without ten pounds of bug spray on! Another positive about venturing into a new season? We are entering into what some may call ‘the home stretch’ in terms of The Home Renovation Part One. And by ‘home stretch,’ I mean ...
