Is it just me, or do you also find that no matter how big your house, basement, garage or closets are, they always seem to get super full, super fast?! The more room you have, the more objects you acquire… Extra storage is hard to come by… Or is it?!
Even though I am always trying to clean and de-clutter, it still never hurts to have some extra storage space.
I myself, have a couple of hutches/buffets that I use for some really stylish and functional storage space. Continue reading →
Planning the perfect table setting for each season can be a somewhat daunting task…. Finding the right color pallet, incorporating different patterns and textures, and staying on budget of course, are just some of the challenges faced…
The trick is to purchase a few all-around neutral pieces that you can reuse for every season, and then just switch out a few of the pieces, like the napkin colors and the centerpiece, to get a totally different look for the next season!
Given the time of year, I decided to select all of the must-have pieces for the perfect farmhouse style table setting, for the season of fall! (My fav!)Continue reading →
If you follow along with The Project Pile on Facebook, you may have seen the beautiful fluffy and poofy burlap wreath that I shared the other day, that my good friend, (Courtenay from over at The Creek Line House) made and posted about… Gorgeous!
This was my inspiration, or rather motivation, to finally get my butt into gear and whip up the burlap rag wreath that I had been hoping to devise long before now!
So yesterday, I finally got my act together and came up with this really beautiful, yet really easy and fast wreath to make! Continue reading →
Is your baby teething?! Or to be more specific, super grumpy all the time and waking up throughout the night for no apparent reason?! If nothing else is noticeably wrong, then chances are that they are probably teething…
Some common symptoms and signs of teething include:
Bumpy and Swollen Gums
Trying to Bite and Put Everything in their Mouths
Some associate fever and diarrhea with teething, but there is still some argument as to whether or not they are directly related
Did you know that there is a trick that you can use to ripen your fruits and vegetables overnight?! I had never heard of this trick before, until the last time my wonderful grandma came to visit me!
We went to one of the local fresh farmer’s markets in town and picked up some yummy peaches… When we got back home, my grandma mentioned that if I wanted my peaches to ripen quicker, then I needed to do this one little, amazing trick!Continue reading →
Raise your hand if you are one of those crazy people like me, who loves a good kitchen faucet! Whether I am visiting someone’s home or strolling down the aisle of the local DIY store, I am always checking out the faucets!
Personally, I have always loved the looks of the old farmhouse style faucets… And the really nice thing about technology these days, is that we can now get these beautiful farmhouse/antique looking faucets, with all of the convenient functionality of the modern day faucet! It’s totally the best of both worlds! Yah!Continue reading →
Do you love pumpkins and fall as much as I do??! Don’t get me wrong… I still love summer and don’t ever like to see it end, but my favorite is when those late August nights are right on the fine line where it’s not quite fall yet, but not quite summer any longer. These nights are the best!
Last night, Matt, the girls, and I went for a walk, and discovered that it’s finally that time of year again!
So today, to celebrate… I am putting together a list of some of the best faux decor pumpkins out there! There’s something for everyone! Whether you are into the white minimalist look, or soft greens, whites and neutral tones, or if you are into the more traditional, beautiful and rich, deep oranges, golds and reds!Continue reading →
Today I’m really excited to share my new thrifty pillar candle holders with you! I found these guys for $6.99 at our local Value Village. They are actually solid wood, and are hand carved… So my dream-style!
So they started out looking a little purple in color when I first found them… Not one hundred percent perfect for me, but I’m sure they were perfect for somebody else at one point in time!Continue reading →
Have you started getting ready for fall yet?! I have… I just can’t help it! Fall is like, um, the most amazing decor season of all!
A few years ago, is when I actually created these three fall burlap printables. They have just been sitting idle on my computer, doing nothing, ever since then! I thought of them the other day and decided to try and track them down, and see if I still liked them… and I totally did!Continue reading →
Last summer my husband and I decided to upgrade our boat for something a little more kid friendly, so we ended up purchasing a really deep boat with a cuddy… Perfect for the kids, as well as fishing in those bigger waves that can sometimes pop up out of no where on the great lakes!
The boat that we purchased was not brand new, but totally new to us! In fact, this boat is actually a 1998… But it still looks pretty darn good, right?! When we launched our boat for the very first time, at a local boat launch, someone actually came up to us and said “Wow, that’s a really nice boat… It’s brand new, right?!”Continue reading →
