Paper Airplane Canvas Collage

Last summer I shared a fun wall art project at Mom Endeavors.  Just in case you missed this easy project I wanted to share it here too.  The paper airplane canvas collage was originally placed in my daughter's bedroom but has transitioned to several different places over the past year.  It was a great piece of art in my pre-k classroom for a few months but I recently moved it back home into my daughter's playroom. You don't need very many supplies to make the Read More... {Read More...}

Ruffled Burlap St. Patrick’s Day Wreath

Today I finally added a few clovers to our home for St. Patrick's Day.  The wreath on our front door received a quick and frugal makeover for the holiday. You just need a few supplies and a little time to make the interchangeable ruffled burlap wreath.  I made mine last year and shared the tutorial at the Arizona Mom's Network. I love this wreath because it looks pretty on our door with or with out added seasonal decorations.  For St. Patrick's Day, I quickly added Read More... {Read More...}

Donut Valentines with Free Printable Bag Topper

I feel like Valentine's Day snuck up on me this year.  I've been working on fun valentines for my daughter to give to her begindergarten classmates but I had not yet completed valentines for my own pre-k students yet.  Yesterday I came up with a very inexpensive and quick valentine to share with my students. I purchased a box of donuts from the grocery store and found Valentine snack bags at the dollar store.  I created the bag topper and simply folder it over the top of the treat bag.  I Read More... {Read More...}

Disney Princess Mother/Daughter Shopping Fun

I've been talking a lot about princesses lately. Mostly because I'm almost finished with my daughter's princess bedroom transition.  Also because we are planning a special surprise weekend in Disneyland for her fourth birthday next month.  We have already purchased the new Cinderella Blu-Ray DVD as a gift and I've been paying close attention to my daughter's holiday wishlist.  She has been talking about the Mattel Ultimate Dream Castle for a few months.  As you can imagine, she was ridiculously Read More... {Read More...}

Princess Bedroom Makeover: Princess Bookcase from Modern Furniture Warehouse

I'm just about finished with my daughter's new princess themed bedroom.  I'm very excited to show you the entire room but before you get the grand tour I will be sharing a few more princess upgrades and tutorials.  Today I'm sharing the pretty new bookcase holding my daughter's favorite books. Prior to the upgrade my daughter had a very small shelf that didn't match her room.  I actually picked that up from the side of the road on bulk trash day last year.  Surprisingly it was in great Read More... {Read More...}

Frugal Dresser Makeover – Temporary Tattoos on Drawer Pulls

My daughter's new princess themed bedroom is done and I've slowly been sharing all the fun changes I made to the room.  My goal was to avoid purchasing anything new for the room.  I made so many fun changes with supplies we already had at home.My childhood dresser moved to college with me and many years later was refinished and painted purple for my daughter's nursery.  The nursery was jungle themed and at the time I had purple hippo drawer pulls on the dresser.  The room transitioned into a big Read More... {Read More...}

Blingy Wall Clock

This might be the quickest project I've ever done!  Really.  I transformed a boring clock into something sparkly in less than five minutes. My daughter is just learning how to tell time on a clock.  It's important to have a wall clock in her room but I didn't want to purchase something new to match the glitter, tulle, and rhinestone accents we've been adding to her princess themed bedroom.  I simply updated her plain white clock by adding some bling.  I could have painted or changed the face on Read More... {Read More...}

Painting the Princess Themed Bedroom

When I decided to tackle the project of moving all the Nemo decor from my daughter's bedroom to her bathroom I was disappointed knowing I would have to paint over the pretty ocean walls in her room.  Prior to the decor change, two of the walls in the bedroom were painted to look like waves.  I wasn't ready to part with the idea completely so I painted that same wall in a different shade of blue in her bathroom.  I love her new Nemo themed bathroom!  I decided to keep the blue walls in her Read More... {Read More...}

Bathroom Makeover: Nemo

My daughter has a really cute Nemo themed bedroom and Disney Princess themed bathroom.  She loved her bedroom for a couple of years but now wants princesses to match her new bed.  I decided it would be an easy and inexpensive project to move all the Nemo decor to her bathroom and bring all the princess decals from the bathroom over to her bedroom.  Of course I couldn't start that project with out completely painting both rooms.  Yesterday I started the transition by painting the bathroom.Her Read More... {Read More...}

Office Makeover Part 1: Paint and Concrete Floor

Last week I started the biggest piece of my office makeover plans.  By Sunday evening I was completely finished and all the furniture had been put back into my office.  I'm so happy with my new yellow walls and concrete floor!I had been dreaming of a concrete floor in my office for a couple of years but I really didn't plan to start the project last week.  Wednesday I made an impulsive decision to rip up a piece of the carpet in the corner behind the door because I wanted to determine if there Read More... {Read More...}
