Reclaimed wood headboard

reclaimed wood headboard @cleverlyinspired (6)

A long long time ago I shared on Instagram a few pictures of the headboard that we made for our master bedroom. I wanted to kind of break down the steps for you in case you wanted to make one for your home. Often times I feel like I shared something with you and then I go back and realized I never did so here goes….

How to build a shelf in a nook space

I realized the other day when I was trying to get rid of some pictures on my computer that I never shared with you this simple woodworking project that we did in Emily’s room this past summer. She has a small little nook in her room that we weren’t really sure what we would do with it. Originally we thought that a dresser may fit well in this space but the window frame is a little too close and does not allow much room especially if you have to open a drawer. So what we thought we would do is build a small floating shelf to have a little makeup area.  It’s nice because it’s right next to the window so it provides some natural light. Pretty easy project and a great use of a odd little nook area.

DIY Makeup Light for Bathroom

January is normally clean up month—the hustle and bustle of the holidays are behind us and we all feel like simplifying. I was asked to participate in a “get clean” blog hop. Lots of fabulous ideas will be shared (please click through on some of the great ideas below my post)….cleaning, diy, storage, organizing….all of it aimed to help you get your clean on! :)

I wanted to share with you an easy way to shed a bit more favorable lighting. I really do think it can make or break the start to your day—begin with a positive—and hopefully that will be the direction for your entire day.

I fell hard for these fabulous pendant lights that we put in our new home. They were so elegant and I loved the light reflection on the wall—what I did not think about was that they made terrible task lighting in the bathroom.

Diy large paper star

wp-1451851206346.jpeg Hi guys! Are you ready to get back into the swing of the routine? It always seems like Monday start so abruptly after New Years. Part of me really enjoys getting back into the daily routine of things and part of me really misses waking up without an alarm clock and having the kids hang out with me. We had such a good family time over the past couple of weeks… not as many places to be… lots of vegging out and watching movies… taking walks ….making cocoa. I hope that you had a nice extended holiday with your families. I was so excited last night too watch Downton Abbey! I still can’t believe that it is the last season for the series. I’m going to miss these characters so much!
