rainbows are having a bit of a moment.. or is it just me? i'm always looking at nursery decor and lately i can't stop obsessing over rainbows, especially ones in more muted tones.  i've wanted to make a wall hanging for ages so when creative rox asked if i'd like to make something with their products a rainbow wall hanging was an easy choice. ...
i feel like storage is always pretty high on my home agenda- we don't have much built-in storage so every cupboard and unit counts! with an ever-growing collection of toys and clothes breeding in every drawer i'm having to get more and more creative with how i'm storing my stuff. i've been doing a few things to maximize the unused spaces in my home and i thought i'd share a few with you.. i figure some of you might be bursting at the seams too and hey every little helps right? one of my favourites is this hidden door storage, all you need is this grid panel  -I've shared the idea and how to quickly install it over at hunker home , go check it out. it's a really quick way to utilize cupboard doors as they're such a wasted space!!  (i styled it up with cleaning utensils for these photos but after a wardrobe reshuffle i'm now using it to hang handbags and totes- it works SO well as it keeps them super tidy and easy to browse. no more ...
Spring is one of my favourite seasons, there's something so exciting about those first sunny days when it's crisp and bright and you winter is finally behind you.  Plus you're a step closer to easter and all that chocolate... what's not to love? I've teamed up with Hobbycraft  to show you how to create a spring themed terrarium. Hobbycraft have been one of my go-to places for craft supplies for years and they have a huge range of contemporary ideas for Easter crafts as well as fun projects for kids. (Sometimes if I'm a little lacking in ideas for projects I'll browse their site for new materials and nine times out of ten I'll find some inspiration!) I've made quite a few terrariums in my time but this one is a little different, I wanted to create a spring themed display that was zero maintenance and long lasting. When I spotted their foliage department everything fell into place... pow! I've enjoyed this twist on a regular terrar...
when it comes to bedrooms headboards are king (or more likely queen!) whether you're going for a big statement or a more minimal look the headboard you choose tends to set the tone of your space.  you may have noticed but i'm a little in love with all things rattan lately, whether it's baskets or cane cabinets i'm seriously digging the boho vibes and where better to introduce them than the boudoir?   ...
i'm a bit of a shelving geek, anyone else? i could literally spend hours arranging trinkets and candles on mine and they're one of my fave DIY's to make. (shelving is a classic weekend DIY project right?)  i've been obsessed with pegboard for years, so cute, so functional what's not to love? (one of my fave DIY's is those giant pegboard walls i keep spying on pinterest.. sadly i don't have enough space in my studio for one of those)  i wanted to make something that was a cross between a regular shelf and pegboard and this is how it turned out. what do you think? i wanted to hang it in the kitchen but it doesn't really work with our decor in there so it's now found a home in gabe's nursery. it fits in with the whole natural wood vibe of that room much better!  it's a really easy project (especially if you get the wood cut for you at your local hardware store.) i've shared the step by step tutorial for the peg sh...
i'm always drawn to bold graphic posters, they bring some much-needed colour and character to our bare white walls. however, when it comes to wall art no matter how much i buy i always seem to need more? i'm constantly trying to justify buying artwork but we recently splurged on a batch of new prints so i've reached my spending limit ... enter this DIY. these prints don't require any painting, drawing or printing, in fact the hardest part is picking a colour scheme. (i went pretty neutral, i'm a little in love with all the earthy tones i'm seeing all over pinterest right now.)  pop over to hunker to read how i made the cheapest, quickest and easiest wall art ever! i opted for a retro mid-century vibe, you can totally experiment with colour and shape to create your own totally unique designs. i'm super happy with how they turned out, they're a perfect addition to my growing wall art collection and they look really professional...
