Bigger Family, Bigger DIY Plans

Hey there strangers 🙂. I feel like it's been a year since I've written a post! I guess it's only been around 6 months, which is close enough 😉. Let me tell you, this pregnancy really kicked my butt. With working full time, family festivities, being sick everyday, all day, and with little to no energy left after the first two activities, I was lucky to even make a dent in the multiple projects I wanted to finish. We'll just call this break from the blog my baby sabbatical 😉. Thankfully now that the worst is over I'm slowly getting back to DIYing 😊.

After 6 months of complete and total silence I figure I should share with you all the reason I've been MIA ☺️. Here she is, our beautiful 6 pound 3 ounce bundle of joy, Brynlee Annelise. She arrived after just three hours of labor on October 25.

As much as I love my entryway I have found it to be a very difficult space to decorate. Huge, high walls that require large pieces, which unfortunately equals large dollar amounts to acquire, have been left blank over the years because I'm a cheapskate. I have looked at some beautiful old windows and arched wood and metal wall art but I've never been willing to throw down hundreds of dollars for them.

3 Easy DIY Boxwood Wreaths for about $2 a piece

Lately I keep seeing all these simple and sweet boxwood wreaths populating front doors, walls and windows on my Instagram feed. The more I saw them, the more I wanted two or three (I'm an overachiever, what can I say?) of my own to disperse throughout my home.

Of course since I'm such an avid wreath DIYer I decided to make my own. It also helped that the previous owners of my house planted 14 boxwood bushes in the front yard ;). Score! So I already had most of my supplies for free right there.

From Hollow Core Bore to a Beautiful Updated Door: DIY Slab Door Makeover using Trim and Paint

Let me start this post by saying how much I loathe hollow core "slab" doors. I really do. There is not one redeeming quality about them. whoever came up with this sorry excuse for a door should be shot.
