Wooden Bead Garland

Have you noticed wooden bead garlands are showing up in interiors everywhere? Draping from a vase, sitting in bowls on a table, cascading down chandeliers, or adorning fireplace mantels. I believe they add a little texture and boho flair to a space. They can be natural or dyed to match any home decor.

DIY Heart Topiary

This DIY heart topiary is super easy to make and just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day is a tough holiday for me. Not because of the meaning, but of the decorating. I always want to decorate for this holiday, but feel I lose my personal style in the process. Can you relate? I am not a bright red and white girl. I enjoy subtle touches that tell a story where someone may have to search my home to find a pleasant surprise. That’s when I came up with the idea for an easy DIY heart topiary. It would have to be delicate and sweet, just like Valentine’s Day itself. Best yet, I believe this topiary could live in the house year round.

The House Renovation Plan

The house renovation plan is probably the most important part of any remodeling project. It’s the dreaming time with a true glimpse of the final destination. My house renovation plan helped to make the process go smooth.

I also knew living in my house for a couple of years would help me realize how I wanted to use the space that would function for our family.  

With that said, let me say, patience is key.  (which I lacked immensely)

Dreaming of what my house could be was how I created the perfect plan.

Before the House Remodel

Front Hallway Arizona

Well, we did it! We took the plunge and had our entire first floor gutted and re-done. Would you like to see before the house remodel and what it looks like now?

I’ll be taking you on a journey throughout the remodel process. I was amazed at how it all fell together; however, we did have one hiccup. If that wouldn’t have happened, the entire project would have been done in just ten days. What? Yes, ten days. You may ask how we were able to take down a wall, remodel the entire kitchen, put in new flooring covering a span of 2,900 square feet, run electrical, resurface a fireplace, and complete the whole project in two weeks? (breath) It was quite a ride.
