Bare wall in Girl Cave

Good evening all!  The day has been filled with lounging in my pjs, watching tv, drinking hot lemon and honey water and blowing my nose, a lot.  Oh yeah, and writing a few blog posts.  Tonight is traditionally date night but alas I am uber sick and will not be leaving the house.  Hubby is in the garage preparing bullets for reloading and getting ready to go shooting in the morning with his dad.

As I sit at my desk in my office/girl cave the wall directly to my left is completely bare.  There are a few thoughts floating in my head about how I want to fill up the space.  One thought is to fill the space with some empty frames.

Out of these three photos the second one is my favorite partially because the frames are white but also because there is one large frame encompassing all of the inner frames which to me makes it look sort of clean and tidy.  Plus buying cheapo frames from a thrift store would be such a steal!

Another thought is to create a DIY painted canvas design of some sort.



The first two photos showcase my idea of three canvases together spread out across the wall.  I am envisioning over the sleeper couch that will eventually go in the office.  Maybe a white and grey piece of canvas artwork?  Or maybe white and silver?  The second photo is the trendy chevron pattern which I like but my husband can't stand.  In the third photo instead of canvases the blogger used shoe boxes!  How creative and what a way to save some money!

What about framing fabric?  You could change out the fabric any time.  I would probably want to keep the frames all the same color though...

What about using puff paints to create a pretty design and then spray painting the entire canvas the same color?

Which design project would you pick?  I'd love to hear your thoughts!  Help?

Dresser turned TV stand makeover!

Tonight, I am so excited to share with you what hubby has been working on for the last few months in his spare time.  Let me preface by saying that we've had our TV hanging on the wall above our fire place since we purchased it about a year ago.  And though I liked it there and it fit well, it wasn't exactly what I had in mind.  You see, while the TV is on and you're sitting on the sofa curled up in a warm blanket drinking hot tea, you can't have the gas fireplace running.  Not only do I use the TV for viewing movies and television shows, but I listen to a lot of music through it.  I love our fireplace but would love it more if I could use it!  So to solve that problem I was on a mission to find a nice TV stand.
After searching online and finding a lot of great furniture options, I realized I didn't really want to spend any money.  We had a dresser gifted to my husband years ago that we were planning on selling or donating but I really wanted to find a new use for i…

Homemade Mod Podge

We all know how expensive Mod Podge is at the craft store, right?  And since there are so many projects which use it, I thought I could find a homemade version online.  Love pinterest!  This is seriously the easiest DIY project I have ever done.
Supplies: A Jar (I rescued an empty Tostitos Creamy Spinach Dip Jar YUMMM which was on its way out to be recycled)Elmer's White Glue (I used two 4 fl oz bottles)Water Before I made the Mod Podge, I washed out the jar and spray painted the lid silver.  I also took off the label from the jar and did my best to get rid of all of the adhesive (first tried a paper towel and rubbing alcohol, but it didn't work and then I tried olive oil and it worked like a charm). Instructions: Empty glue into jarFill the empty glue bottle with water and pour into the new jar with the glue  (Ideally, you want 50% glue and 50% water)Shake, Shake, SHAKE the jar That's it!  You have made homemade mod podge!  EASY PEASY!
You can get a little fancy and create a lab…

TWO YEARS | remembering our miscarriage

We all have that day. The day when our world changed forever. For us, it was the day we lost our little one. I don't cry much anymore, but I remember. The pain isn't raw as it once was, but I will never forget.
I remember the day I found out I was pregnant. The day I told my husband he was a daddy to be. I remember the dreams we had for this baby. Our hopes. Our plans. Our future. I remember our normally un-snuggly dog coming up to me and nuzzling her head under my arm pit, resting her head on my belly as if she knew there was a little life growing inside of me. I remember the prayers. So many prayers. We prayed every night for this baby of ours. For their future. For their health. For their life. The unbelievable love.
The warmth of the sun and the smell in the air.
I remember the darkness descending. The blood. The emergency room. The tests. The feelings of fear. The spoken words. The reality dawning. The unimaginable pain.
The surgery.
The pain isn't raw as it once was…
