Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Peanut Butter Dog Treats

  This recipe makes my heart soar.  Ever since we adopted Chewie 2 years ago, we have spoiled him to pieces with toys, treats, and lots of hugs.  Recently, I decided to tackle the task of making Chewie his very own dog treats.  I know he loves having bananas and peanut butter in his Kongs, [...]

DIY Master Bedroom Refresh Pt. 1 – Painted Tile

DIY Master Bedroom Refresh Pt. 1 – Painted Tile

Hey y'all!  It feels good to be back.  These past few weeks have been so hectic with planning out projects around the house, figuring out what we are contracting out and what we are tackling ourselves.  Most people don't know this, but Ian and I aren't full-time renovators nor do we have a background in [...]

Garage Pegboard Organization

Garage Pegboard Organization

  When Ian and I were renovating our old house, Squirrel House, we were working mainly out of a small one-car garage (that actually doesn't really fit a car).  The garage was super dingy, had minimal lighting, and just wasn't super conducive to getting work done.  To be fair, we were also horrible at organizing that [...]

DIY Wool Dryer Balls

DIY Wool Dryer Balls

This is probably my favorite DIY, period. Making my own dryer balls was probably one of my first zero waste switches.  My skin is very sensitive to synthetic fragrances.  Dryer sheets makes my skin very itchy, so I've always opted not to use them.  Also, there are some debate out there that dryer sheets might [...]

DIY Body Butter

DIY Body Butter

This is my all-time favorite body butter recipe.  I make big batches of this over the holidays as handmade gifts.  You can buy all of the ingredients in either minimal packaging or simply package free.  It's so luxurious and it has improved my skin drastically.  The great thing about this is that you can customize [...]

Dresser & Nightstand Re-Do

Dresser & Nightstand Re-Do

  So I've been doing a bit of DIY all over the house.  Another major project that I took on was the spare guest room.  Unlike my room which screams out "girl's room", I tried to make this one a bit more gender-neutral.  One of the tasks I did was repainting the dresser and nightstand. [...]

Re-Upholstered Chair: Zebra Edition

Re-Upholstered Chair: Zebra Edition

  After the success of the last reupholstered chair, my mom quickly requested that all the shabby chairs in the house be reupholstered.  This project was a lot easier than the reupholstered armchair project.  The chair pad was held together by four screws.  So all we had to do was unscrew the chair, reupholster the [...]

Fabric Upholstered Headboard

Fabric Upholstered Headboard

Over the course of the past week, I've been doing a lot of DIYs around the house.  First, I repainted my room!  I wish I'd taken a before photo so you guys can see the drastic difference!  But the picture below should give you an idea of the color my room used to be!  It [...]

DIY: Re-upholstered Armchair

DIY: Re-upholstered Armchair

  A few months ago, my mom's trusty leather armchair began tearing.  Over the course of a few weeks, the tear got so big that it became unrepairable.  My mom was about to throw out the chair, when I suggested that we try re-upholstering it.  I've seen so many design blogs that did such amazing [...]

Twine-wrapped Wine Bottles

Twine-wrapped Wine Bottles

  It's been a while since my last DIY!  My roommate and I are moving out in a few weeks and since I'm taking a lot of decorations with me, I thought it would be a nice gesture to make her some new ones for her new fancy bachelorette pad! I've seen these DIY twine [...]
