DIY Rustic Chippy Faux Fireplace Mantel


Hey! I can't believe I am finally sharing my DIY fireplace with you guys! It feels like forever ago since I started building it.


I thought it would be an appropriate tutorial to share since I just shared my Holiday Master Bedroom.


I am just in love with how it turned out, and now I think every house deserves it's own fireplace. Real or fake!




Right after Hurricane Matthew hit us, it was kind of cold over here on the coast... and I was craving cozy things. So I started playing with the scrap wood in our garage and started building a fireplace frame. It was kinda crazy, but I was like, "It will either be AMAZING or terrible."

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Painting


Merry Christmas! Hope you all are doing great, and enjoying December! Today I have a behind the scenes video of my Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer painting. I am obsessed with using masking fluid for writing, so you will totally be seeing more of these type of watercolor pieces from me in the future.

A Very Merry Christmas Livingroom - Holiday Home Series


I am so excited to share our Christmas Living Room with you all today!


It happens to be the most high traffic area in our house. We try to keep it pretty open so that the kids can run around & play.


 We have a large sectional, so we had to get creative with it's placement in order to fit a Christmas tree into the room, but it's fun to switch things up occasionally.

A Very Merry Christmas Kitchen - Holiday Home Series


Hey everyone! ready for some more Holiday Home Inspiration?! Today I am sharing how to bring a subtle flair of Christmas into your kitchen.

Kitchens are the heart of  winter... When I think Christmas, I think family. When I think family, I think food... and I LOVE food. Making it, entertaining with it, eating it. It's all good in my book.


So this Christmas I wanted to bring the decorating into my kitchen. Having a big heaping chalkboard wall just called for some Christmas Hand Lettering, so that's where I started.


I love to bake, and I seriously think my chocolate chip cookies are one of the biggest factors in my husband marrying me. Not even kidding. With that said, I keep a lot of flour and sugar in stock, and I like to keep it out on the counter in glass canisters.
