This bathroom makeover has been much needed and I love the look of our new DIY board and batten.

When our toilet broke after Logan's Curious George birthday party, it gave us the push we [...]

Greenery is a great way to bring nature into your home, but sometimes it can be hard to keep our plants alive. Succulents are a great starter plant because they prefer to stay dry and have higher chances of survival if you are forgetful in watering them. So if you love plants, but don’t quite have a green thumb just yet, try making a cute DIY succulent garden. […]
