DIY Console Table

I saw THIS console table on Pinterest and fell in love! I was hoping the post would lead to a DIY, but it didn’t. So, I had to DIY it myself! You could likely do this table, VERY cheaply. It looks like in the original photo the legs are just old porch posts and the […]

Chalkboard wall DIY

I have been itching to do a chalkboard wall for about a year. Through moving, then renting, then waiting for our house to be built… the time is finally here!! I wasn’t exactly sure where we would put our chalkboard wall, since our house doesn’t really have a “mudroom” or secluded entry area. I was also […]
