My parents got us a maple tree for both Matt and I’s birthday this year. I’m excited to see it grow old and strong with us in this house! Props to Matt for getting it secured in our front lawn!
I started with this old bullitin board that my mom gave me 5 years ago. I love the frame, but we really don’t have any use or space for a bullitin board. She simply glued and stapled cork board over an old painting. I forgot to take a picture of it with the frame still on, but you get the gist. In any case, I was excited to bring this frame back into my decor without the bullitin portion. Queue DIY painting! Continue reading “DIY Wall Art using leftover wall paint”
On Monday, my 29th birthday, I decided I’d treat myself and purchase these beautiful chairs to finish off the living room furniture expenditure.

I found multiple old maps in my aging car (120k miles and pushing 10 years old) that luckily don’t serve their intended purpose anymore thanks to iPhone navigation. But fortunately, I’m putting these maps to good use with a little cutting, pasting, pretty paper, and simple frames. Here’s what I’ve made this far out of the maps. I originally made simple hearts out of the location of weddings, but recently started adding the invite for a more personal touch. I also made two for baby gifts out of the birth state of the newborn. I think they’ve turned out pretty cute for a DIY project.
