DIY Burlap Bedskirt Tutorial

For the longest time, I have been wanting to redo my bedroom. It all started with the headboard*. Once I decided what I wanted, everything else pretty much fell into place. I found everything I wanted, from night stands, pillows, comforter, sheets, etc. What i could not decide on though was a bedskirt. The sheets I ordered did not come with a bedskirt (which is ok, because the sheets are orange, and I knew I wouldn't have liked an orange bedskirt).

Custom Hand Painted Pillows

I'm big on crafting, any craft really, but I've recently begun a new craft that is becoming a favorite hobby. Hand. Painted. Pillows. I mean, how awesome are these?? I may be biased, but I think that they really add something extra to any space...no two pillows are the same and they are customized to fit what you want.

Updated Front Porch

I had several pallets in my garage (shout out to Married Filing Jointly for letting me have them), and I have gone over and over how I want to use them. Initially, I wanted to make a headboard, but the more I looked at them sitting there...I knew that was not the look I wanted for my bedroom. I'm saving up money for an upholstered headboard :)

Fireplace Remodel

It's always nice to you have the opportunity to redo an area of your home. That is exactly what my Granny did...but to the majority of her home. Over the past several years, there have been updates to the kitchen, an expansion of the master bedroom, and updates to the living room/hallway and guest bath. Everything looks beautiful! Just recently though (well, last year), she decided to redo her entire fireplace. I was so excited because I drew up the plans for her and presented them to my uncle (who was the main contractor on the project).

DIY: Pallet Table

Sorry to have been MIA for the past month...it has been crazy busy, which was a pleasant change from my stay-at-home-life lately. I spent some great time with family, plus an amazing beach trip. I actually got the idea for this post when I went home to visit, so props to my awesome family :)
