The Super Bowl is right around the corner and it’s time to starting planning the game day party! I am not a fan of football, or sports in general, but I always love a reason to have a party! Here are the food and decorations that I think I will be using this year. All these great ideas have got me really excited and I can’t wait to try them!
Recently I have been looking for cute DIY décor for my house and I have seen so many amazing wine bottle projects! So, I decided to make some of my own for my half bath makeover that I am working on this month. The first thing I had to figure out was how to remove the labels from the bottles. I tried a few different methods but this one worked the best and the labels came right off!
My house goal for January is to do a mini-makeover on my half bath. Since this is the smallest room, and hopefully the easiest room I figured I would just do it and get it over with so I can stop thinking about it all time! I have been avoiding pretty much every room in my house because I can’t decide on paint colors so this is a good place to start.
I have A LOT of plans for my house this year! Most of it is just painting and décor but even doing just that can be expensive and overwhelming. To help keep my sanity, I use a project printable that allows me to list what I want to do and what my budget is.
Do you have a big empty space above your kitchen cabinet and are unsure how to decorate it? I sure did! I spent 2 months looking at the empty space above my kitchen cabinets daily trying to figure out what to do with that space. It’s an awkward little area because if you put smaller stuff up there, no one will be able to see any of it and if you put too much stuff on top then it’s very busy and just doesn’t look right (at least in my opinion is doesn’t). Finally, I just decided to try a few things to see what would work.
This week I have been working on my small hall/guest/kid’s bathroom. It started out very plain and boring with yellow walls & ceilings, an unframed mirror and the cheapest towel bar that you can buy. My goals with this bathroom was to paint, replace the mirror with a framed one, replace the towel bar with hooks, install a hand towel holder and add some cute decorations with a total budget of $100. This was a very tough budget to stick to so I had to be creative and find cheaper alternatives.
While working on my bathroom makeover this week, I decided to try to frame my bathroom mirror. I was pretty nervous about doing this because it seemed pretty challenging but it was actually very easy and only cost $17!! Before, it was just a plain, builders grade mirror secured to the wall with plastic hooks. It is still secured with hooks but looks so much better and really completes the bathroom!
This week I have been working on my hall/guest/kid’s bathroom. One of the things that I wanted to do was find a cute, inexpensive alternative to the standard towel bar. I am not a fan of towel bars! The towels take longer to dry and no one else can ever seem to hang the towels up so that they look decent. I love the look of towel hooks! Here is how I made cute towel hooks for only $17.
Over the past few years, I have fallen in love with DIY sugar scrubs! What I love most about these sugar scrub recipes is the price! Store bought body products can be expensive so why pay the extra money for something that is quick & easy to make? Before I started making my own sugar scrubs, I would very rarely spend the money on them (because I’m cheap!) and would make one jar/tub last for a year or longer. Since I have started making my own scrubs, I use them almost daily and my skin always feels amazing!
Like most young boys, my 6 year old step son loves superhero’s! There is nothing better to him. Therefore, he had to have a superhero bedroom. Here is how we gave him a great, fun bedroom for under $200.
