Fall Mudroom and Entryway Ideas

Fall is here, fall is here! Read on for some ideas for your fall decor. Hi friends 🙂 Remember when we remodeled the mudroom, and built the pantry? It’s now decorated for fall, and it makes this girl’s heart ever so happy as I’ve been super involved in kitchen renovations for the past few months. Having a house full of nail guns, air compressors, paint, trim… (and on and on and on) is somewhat depressing. So let’s move on to something happy, and that is FALL! Yay!!! (Now, if you live in…

Blanket Scarf Wreath – Perfect for Fall!

Hi friends! Try this blanket scarf wreath if you’re looking for something easy, minimal, and adorable! I had this wreath last fall, and I just loved it!

DIY Address Sign

Need a new house sign? We certainly did! We went for about a year without numbers on our house. One of the great aspects about living in a small town is that you still get your mail and boxes even without a number on your house! God bless the USPS/UPS/Fedex because they’ve never failed us even though we clearly failed them by not having numbers on our house. (Or our mailbox! What in the heck is wrong with us?) 😉 This is the easiest project in the existence of all DIY projects. I promise you. DIRECTIONS: 1…
