Swiss Cross Wall Decal Tutorial

I took on a fun project for my daughter’s room recently.  Her taste in style and decor is ever changing as she is entering the tween/teen years. I wanted to give her room a refresh without spending a lot of money, allowing for it to be changed should her mood so desire it a few months down the road.

We found these great removable wall decals online from and knew they would be perfect for the look and totally affordable for a small budget.

An Easy, Personalized Gift Idea

The fall season makes me so excited for festive decor– inside and out.

DIY Geometric Stencil Tutorial

Hil and I recently gave a fresh update to an outdated hutch. It was so fun to see the transformation so we thought we would share it on the blog. This hutch has very classic details and straight lines, so after painting it white and sealing it, we thought it would be fun to make it a little more current by adding some geometric stenciling to the interior of the hutch. We were inspired by a stencil we saw Emily at Jones Design Company use for her fireplace and thought something similar would be perfect for this piece.  We decided we would make our own stencil and give it a go.
