DIY Face Scrub

Bit by bit I am doing by best to step out of my comfort zone and do what I really enjoy. I’ve been saying that I want to do more tutorials and I’ve filmed a TON of them but (to be honest) never post them because I am my own worst critic.  Then I read this…

No more excuses. No more waiting. Time to start walking (even if it is only on my tip toes) in the direction I want to go. 🙂 So without further hesitation, here is my DIY Lemon and Sugar Face Scrub tutorial. Be kind. 😉

I’ve Got A Fever

I’ve got the DIY, redecorating kind of fever.  As of late that is all I can think of. New paint pallets, DIY porch swings, fire pits, renovated attics.  This is getting out of control!

The only cure is to grab a hammer, paint brush, or both and get to work. In the meantime, I just have to share all these little bursts of inspiration that is filling up my Pinterest page.

First, the attic. We have one but is basically for storage. That is until I saw this….

attic - GORGEOUS!

There is just something about this that is so magical. If we converted our attic into a room like this, I don’t think I would ever leave.

As of late, I am all about the clutter free, clean look. Not only do I love the colour and look of this laundry room but am definitely going to copy the sorting area.

I love this! laundry-room-sorting-station

I LOVE THIS!!! This would be perfect for my little JBear’s room. Free up the entire room for a play area and his reading nook/bed area all cozy in the closet. So cute!

Take the door off of a closet, add molding around the doorway, and put in some comfy seating and pillows. A very unique reading nook!  SO COOL!

Photo walls – oh yeah baby! I have a ton of pictures and need to get them up on the walls. I absolutely love the way this looks.

And now for a little DIY magic….turn cheap (but cute) sheets into curtains….WHAT?! Why on earth have I never thought of this?

Wait.. what??? I always see sheets that I wish were curtains because they're cheaper! Hot glue ribbon tabs to turn a bed sheet into a no-sew curtain. Genius!

I definitely need to do this – my key dish just isn’t cutting it.

 

Frame Key Holder

We all have mirrors like this or you can pick one up at Wal-Mart for $14.00 and turn it into a DIY masterpiece.

Mind. Blown.

I love this! Keep the counter clean and have a place for fruit.

Huh, who would've thought? Hanging planter basket re-purposed as a fruit holder! Frees up valuable counter space. LOVE this idea!

Anyone else have the fever? What are you guys working on?


Bathroom Musings

It’s not what you think. 😉 Although my best ideas come to me while I am in the shower, these musings are actually about my bathroom. You see, I want to freshen it up. A new coat of paint, maybe some curtains, lights….and this is where the daydream takes off.

This first image has a very similar set up as our downstairs bathroom.  I love how crisp and clean everything looks. Our tile is an off white so I’m not sure how well the blue wall colour would go with it but I love the white and the added touches.

Just the right amount of mint, not too much so that it starts to look like the Lizzie Borden house... a tad lighter for downstairs bath

I am in love with this paint pallet, what do you guys think?

BEACHY - PAINT seaglass paint pallet 

These looks are a little darker but the grey really works with the tan tile and deeper brown. Yet another possibility.

I love the tile & color ... however, I think gray is too cool for a bathroom.  The tile & porcelain already feel cool, you will end up always feeling cold in here.

And of course details matter, so I thought these little touches would be cute. I love the labels on the jars, adds that little extra and still keeps it very clean-looking.

I also love the idea of taking down the towel bars and using these hooks. To be painfully honest, we never use the towel bars anyways. At least this way the towels will be hung rather than slung over the side of the shower.

take out the bar towel rack and do this

Framed pictures of kids in the bath??? YES PLEASE!

Pictures of kids in the tub in the bathroom... great idea!   The Painted Home: { Home Tour by Grand Designs }

So how would you describe your bath room? Clean and crisp? Family friendly? What little touches have you added to make it personal?

And, of course, I just had to share this photo with you all. Look at the size of this tub. Can you imagine how much water you would have to use to fill that sucker up? IT’S AWESOME!!! Not really logical but STINKIN AWESOME!
