I made it through the Polar Vortex and I'm so happy that spring is here. I'm looking forward to longer days, warmer weather, spring flowers and enjoying time outdoors. I know it was a long winter when I'm also looking forward to yard work! My newly thawed
I have always been a fan of custom built-in bookcases but have been intimated by their price and the skill required to create them. However, about a year ago I enlisted the help of my father and a few other skilled family members to help me transform
We recently completed our boy’s bathroom renovation which included adding a tile floor. The tile floor almost didn’t happen because I was so afraid of the cleaning and maintenance aspect. While tile is very durable, I was coming from a pretty bad
Never underestimate the power of paint. However, today I’m taking paint outside the home and writing about how to revamp exterior spaces with paint. The process is a little different than interior painting since it requires a bit more prep work, but i
Hi y’all, it’s Monica from Monica Wants It! The holidays are here! I always get really excited to see all the new décor out at my favorite stores… until I see the prices. Then I get really excited to recreate it at

Hi Everyone! It's Taryn from Design, Dining and Diapers, and today I'm talking about outdoor lighting. Now, I know what you are thinking, 'But, it's SO expensive' and 'But, I would have to hire someone
Hi! It's Taryn from Design, Dining and Diapers! Who is ready for the holidays? I am! I know we all get used to the traditional red and green holiday décor, but I like to do things a little differently;
End tables are a dime a dozen at tag sales…and they are the best way to test out your painting/refinishing skills. Folks worry all the time… “What if I paint it and don’t like it!?!” but when you start out with a beat up $10 table, there should be no wor
For me, fall means leaves crunching, apple cider sipping and fire-crackling good times. To maximize the frequency of these good times, we recently created a cozy outdoor space with some new furniture and an outdoor fireplace. It is a great spot to land
Wonder what brought about the term spring cleaning? I guess it is a way for us to get rid of all the cobwebs that winter brought…open the windows…smell actual fresh air and get back outside. There is this renewed feeling when you see the grass starting to
It’s summertime! One of my favorite things about this time of year is the abundance of fresh fruits in our local grocery stores and farmers' markets. Here in Georgia, the “peach state” sweet, plump peaches are readily available this time of year. It’s
