Details of a DIY Play Kitchen…

A few days ago, I shared the play kitchen I just finished for our little man but there were some important details I still wanted to share. Honestly, the very best parts of the kitchen – the ‘tile’ backsplash, ‘stone’ countertops, and ‘stainless steel’ appliances were all created using simple paint.  And those were definitely the things that make the little kitchen so gorgeous so I wanted to share the details of how I created them.  In case your are working on a play kitchen of your own.  … [Read More...]


DIY play kitchen from an entertainment center…

My son’s repurposed play kitchen is finished and it is gorgeous!  If only our real kitchen looked this good!   This kitchen was originally meant to be a Christmas present…but clearly that didn’t exactly happen.  Whoops. This project probably could have been finished in a week but right after starting it, I was hit hard with a lethal combo of pregnancy malaise and this winter’s never-ending sinus infection so all DIY was put on hold.  But finally my creative energy has returned … [Read More...]

Plus, now it’s time for the fun stuff: Figuring out a … [Read More...]


Stamped Mason Jar and Spring Mason Jar Inspiration…

I love mason jars.  Love them.  As a simple vase.  As a quick storage solution.  As a decorative accent. I’ve read a few times this year that decorating with mason jars is one of those trends that is over but I think that is absolutely ridiculous.  First of all, I could care less if they are out of style because I personally love them.  Second, they’ve been going strong for more than a hundred years so I’m pretty sure they aren’t going to suddenly disappear this year. Today, I don’t just have … [Read More...]


Watercolor Pillow Covers…

Hello friends!  I had to let you know I am sharing another fabulous project at Domestically Speaking today – DIY Watercolor Pillow Covers.   I love how some simple pillow covers can do so much to freshen up a room and the soft, fresh colors of these are so pretty.  But this little project also had a second purpose. As I shared last week, a new ‘big boy’ room is in the works for my little man and I am hoping to make a DIY version of this gorgeous map bedding.  I wanted to … [Read More...]
