Desiree Hartsock’s Home Office Makeover

This fall was filled with awesome makeovers and tons of DIY projects! One of my favorites was the home office makeover I did with Lowe’s for Season 9 Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock in Seattle, WA.  First off, Des is a sweetheart and we had so much fun together, secondly, I fell in love with Seattle, and thirdly, I brought along an awesome videographer to capture the whole makeover, so I could share it with you!

I’ll be sharing lots of pictures and tutorials next week, but for now,  check out the video and let me know what you think!


DIY Growth Chart

neustadt-113Breakfast Nook Makeover edit Mon

Our family takes our growth chart very seriously. I'm not sure many families can say that (lol), but we measure the kids on their birthday and half birthday until they're 10 years old, and then annually after that.  Boys with a special black Sharpie, girls with brown.  Eric has the dates set in his Outlook calendar with reminders until like 2035! No joke!  We love comparing the kids at each age and seeing how much they've grown- it's fun!  So, when I was planning the nursery for the Lowe's Fall ...

Once upon a time, there was a lovely couple expecting their first baby.  They dreamed of an amazing nursery in their newly purchased home, a space to raise their little girl and teach her about the world... This was not exactly what they had in mind. Welcome to my Lowe's Fall Makeover reveal- this was the state of Betty & Edgar's nursery when I arrived.  I had 24 hours, 100 degree heat,  1 helper, a group of Lowe's Heroes volunteers and a baby on the way (well, not until December, but it ...

Create a Holiday Wrapping Station

snapfishholiday -15

One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is to wrap presents.  I love having tons of choices of ribbon, greenery, paper, tags, accents, and more.  What I don't love to do during the holiday season is drag out all my wrapping supplies, make a disaster of my family room while wrapping, and then pack it all back up, just so I can do the same thing the next day!  I've totally solved that problem by creating a Holiday Wrapping Station that looks cute, so it can stay out throughout ...
