How to Build Antique Pediment Door Arches


I'm not going to lie, it's been pretty crazy over here lately. Life has been a little rough this past month or so, but I am trying to get back into the swing of things. So to brighten my mood, I am finally sharing a super fun project I did recently: DIY Chippy Antique Pediments.

Our house was really builder basic when we moved in two years ago. Like gross orange oak cabinets, no backsplash, and no architectural charm. It isn't our "forever home," but I want to love every space we live in. So while we are here, I will keep on adding character to it's bare bones.



It's come so far with the simple fixes we've made over the years. Here's a reminder of where it started. See more of the ugly before HERE.


Today I wanted to share a quick tutorial on adding some architectural character to your home by building some simple DIY door arches. Here's the visual difference of the original builder basic door modeling, before adding character with door pediments.


If we were going to stay longer, there are some things I would change in a heart beat, like the countertops, sink, flooring, door knobs, etc. But they are all in good condition, so for now we will just hold out on those type of updates until our next place (where ever that may be- military family problems, haha!)

A Real Unicorn for Christmas


Hello Everyone! Shock- a new post! 

It seems like forever since I have pressed publish, but honestly, it's been rough over here this month. Without going into too many details, it has taken all my energy to just be "mommy" lately. Family always comes first in my life, which sometimes results in me being a horrible blogger. I really wish I was quicker to create awesome content, but life happens. Lately, my time has been consumed with things like teaching my kids to read, telling them a bed story (every single night!), home improvement projects with my husband, and just trying to make memories as a family.


Today I wanted to share one of my favorite DIY's ever!!! Yes, this unicorn you see is a "Do It Yourself"!!!!
