This particular project was a birthday gift for my boyfriend and since it’s the gift giving season, I thought this would be the perfect time to share with you how I made it! Not only did I get to use one of our favorite photos from a trip to New Mexico, but the underlying message of, “Hey, I risked getting Tetanus from rusty barbed wire to make this for you…..

At every flea market and home goods store I see these cute rustic home decor signs with quotes or designs painted on them, but I’m always shocked by the ticket price and file it away in my “I can totally make that myself” category. So here I am… making it myself! Not only do I have more than enough materials to make at least 10 more of these, but I… Keep Reading
We’ve been in our current home for about a year and half and I can’t believe I’m just now making this project happen! When you first walk in the front door you’re greeted with a miserable, blank, white wall. Not exactly a welcoming entryway so I decided to add a pop of color and some fun photos for our guests to enjoy when they come over. Rather than a traditional… Keep Reading
I don’t know about you guys, but Valentine’s Day kind of makes me sick. Even when I’m very much in love, this holiday is still not a favorite of mine… The sickening amounts of heart shaped candy, the large pointless teddy bears, and stupid chubby baby decor everywhere. I guess you can call me the Scrooge of Valentines Day. I did a bit of brainstorming and decided to kind of… Keep Reading
No Breakfast Gallery Wall is complete without a quote from one of my favorite fictional characters, Ron Swanson! I found a lot of similar prints and posters on Etsy, but after seeing these wood slices at the craft store, I knew they would make the perfect canvas for this. Since my handwriting is a sloppy mess and my painting skills are on par with a three year old’s, I used… Keep Reading
For our wedding reception I needed some pretty plates, teacups, and saucers for the dessert table, so I headed to my local Goodwill and happened to luck out when I found an entire matching set! They worked out really well, but now I’m left with a surplus of dishes that I probably won’t end up using too much. I decided to turn one of the teacup and saucer sets into… Keep Reading
We all know that cooking on a Teflon coated pan that’s been scratched is extremely dangerous, so you typically just have to toss them out once they start to peel or become too scratched to use anymore. I had a few that I was getting ready to throw out when it struck me to turn them into wall art instead! A few coats of chalkboard paint made the skillet look… Keep Reading
I am NOT a morning person. Unless I stay up all night, watching the sunrise is not something that happens for me often. In an effort to change that around, I thought I would make a fun breakfast inspired wall that would brighten my mood and make me look forward to early mornings! I can’t wait to add new artwork, photos, and other breakfast paraphernalia, but for now here’s what I… Keep Reading
I went on a hike with a friend to Multnomah Falls last year and I picked up one of the largest leaves I’ve ever seen! I knew I had to make a fun project with it so I pressed it between two large pieces of poster board and it’s been there ever since. I wanted to create some new décor for the fall season and remembered I had this monstrous… Keep Reading
Spring is coming to a close, but you don’t have to say goodbye to all the gorgeous spring flowers just yet! Preserve your favorite ones or perhaps a bouquet from a loved one by drying them and turning it into customized wall art to enjoy year-round!
Whenever I go thrift store hunting I always run into this sad stack of discarded albums. They’re scratched, cracked, or a slew of easy listening, Barbara Streisand, Donny Osmond, and 80’s one-hit-wonders. The good news is that I finally found a way to get some use out of those poor albums… destroy them! Whether you want some new music-inspired wall art or you want to ruin your ex’s favorite vinyl…..

This project started out as failed wall art and I was so frustrated that I wanted to torch the canvas that I had just spent so much time on! A couple of beers later and some brainstorming, I realized it would turn out okay and it was exactly what I needed for another project I wanted to start! I combined my screw-up canvas with my love of travel and vintage… Keep Reading
