DIY Wall Treatments Other Than Shiplap

September 20, 2016 • By


It.  Is.  Everywhere.

Shiplap in living rooms, shiplap in dining rooms, shiplap in bathrooms, shiplap in kitchens.

Here a shiplap, there are shiplap, everywhere a shiplap. 

HGTV and Joanna Gaines has taken this farmhouse, shiplap phenomenon to the extreme.

Now, please don’t get me wrong…as an interior designer I appreciate different styles, design asthetics, and I do like shiplap, but it’s being overdone!

There’s more wall treatment options out there besides shiplap so let’s check them out!!!

Take a look at a few DIY Wall Treatments that I have completed over time, other than shitlap, I mean shiplap…

Meet my Haven Conference Blogger Friends!

September 6, 2016 • By

Lots of things have been happening lately! I got back from Haven, an annual home decor and DIY conference for bloggers, earlier this month and if you follow me on Instagram, you know that the family and I escaped to the lake for the week. It was MUCH NEEDED.

I learned a lot at Haven and y’all already know that I drank too much at Haven – you can read a little bit more about that, here. While there, I had a chance to catch up with some old and new friends and today, I wanted to share a bit about what these amazing ladies have been up to!!

I learned a lot at the Haven Conference in Atlanta and I want you to meet my Haven Conference Blogger Friends! They are all so talented!

Prepare to be inspired…
