DIY Outdoor Planter Box Tutorial

Over the past few years, the stairs to our patio have been completely neglected. The rest of our patio has looked better than ever, but the little "entrance" to it? Not so much :) It seriously looked like it was falling apart, and we literally had 3 grills and 2 smokers stacked around the sides of it. Why? I have no clue. My husband would need to answer that for you. Besides the grills, we had a lot of junk that just got stuck under the stairs that we never used. So, after convincing my husband that we needed to get rid of practically all of it, I got started on making the space a little bit more appealing to the eye.

I'll share with you how I transformed the railing and stairs soon.  Besides that makeover, I envisioned an awesome planter or two on the sides of the now clean stairs. So, I got to work.

A long time ago...well, maybe like 3 years ago...I changed up my house like 5 times a year. Played musical chairs with all my furniture just wondering what place they would stay put for a few months. It was fun, it was expensive sometimes, and boy do I have a whole entire basement full of things I used shortly and never touched again. That's what it takes sometimes though to find your style. It took me like 7 years, so you can imagine how full my basement is :) But, now I am finally happy with where my house is and truthfully, it's super hard to move things from a place where I already love them. It does help me save quite a bit of money though, now instead of thinking "oh that's cute! I want it!" I think, "Do I like this piece more than the piece that I'm going to be getting rid of for it?".  Nine times out of ten, it's the latter....I know, I grown up :) lol

Summer Home Decorating Ideas: Tour 2018

The below post contains affiliate links.  Hi friends! Summer is almost here and I'm trying to soak in every second of it! I feel like it doesn't last long around here anymore. Let's just say that I hate snow, so summer is my favorite season and I wish it lasted all year! Today, I'll be sharing some rooms in my house for the Summer Home Tours hosted by the wonderful Marty from A Stroll Thru Life. If you are new here and stopping by from Thistlewood Farm, welcome! I have been a big fan of Karianne's for awhile, go check out her beautiful home if you haven't already!  A little background on my home, I have lived in our custom built house for almost 10 years! Crazy how fast time flies. I have had my ups and downs about moving and finding a place a little more suitable for us, but for now, we are staying. I've slowly been adding the character that I love to our house. We bought it with all beige walls, carpet and tile. Luckily, I've come to adore the walls, w…
