Kitchen Gift Giving Ideas

Some of my favorite gifts I have received have been kitchen items. They are typically very useful and practical, and can be pretty! Did you all know The Home Depot carries kitchen products? They actually carry oodles of things that I wasn’t aware of. But when I saw while shopping online all of the great kitchen things I was amazed!

The Ultimate Garage Makeover

I have some BIG news today friends!! Over the past several weeks my husband and I have been working like crazy people giving our garage an overhaul! More so my husband, since I still went to bed at usual time while he stayed up late in the garage. Bless him.

Remember three years ago I wrote a post on our horrific garage? Well fast forward 3 years and it only got worse. Much worse. But I’m happy to report it is amazing now!!

I Don’t Have To Clean My Floors Anymore!

Woohoo happy Friday!! I’m just a little excited today. Why? Because I get to sit back and relax and let someone else do my cleaning now! That someone just happens to be a new little iRobot friend.

Dollar Store Christmas Wreath | Gold Leaf Wreath

The other day I went into the dollar store for something else other than wreath supplies, but when I saw all of these pretty and sparkly stems they had, I couldn’t resist. And this new gold leaf Christmas wreath was born.

Breakfast Room Updates With New Table and Chairs!

Hi all! Hope you had a great weekend. I finally was able to snap a few photos of our much new and improved breakfast room over the weekend. I mentioned a few weeks ago we took advantage of World Market’s big furniture sale they had and got our new table and chairs from there. And I just love them so much.

Decorating With Nesting Tables | Pottery Barn Decorating Challenge

Hello friends! I was honored to be invited to participate in a decorating challenge from Pottery Barn! We were each sent their Tanner Nesting Tables, and were challenged to use them to create 2 different looks, in 2 areas in our home. I love the look of nesting tables since they are so functional and can be used in many ways. You never can have too many side accent tables am I right?

The first look I came up with was to use them mostly as a Fall display to hold some pretty accessories. More of like an art work display, if you will.

Ooh Baby! | A Christmas Giveaway

One of the things about blogging is that you always are discovering new companies and shops, and of course blogs! I think it’s a great thing to get out there and support the hand-made shops especially, because those items are made with love, and most likely from a person just like you and me. And we all need support right? :) When Stephanie from Ooh Baby Designs contacted me about a giveaway, I took a look at her Etsy shop and fell IN LOVE! I couldn’t believe I haven’t run into her before while browsing around.

The Best Leggings Ever and Finds of the Week

I love showing you all things I have found recently that are worthy to be written about. Case in point, the best leggings ever. After all, it is legging and oversized shirt season right? Good leggings are hard to find because a lot of them are see through and will show your lumps and bumps (a/k/a cellulite, a/k/a the worst genetic inheritance ever), but these do a great job at covering it all up and smoothing you out (for the most part) and are just flattering, which is hard to say about leggings.

The Day I Designed A Coral Sofa

Howdy friends! Man, I needed a week or so to get back to normal, and to process my few days spent in North Carolina for the La-Z-Boy Design Dash event where I designed a coral sofa! My oh my it was a jam-packed, super fun, and amazing event. If you follow me on Instagram you have probably seen all of the excitement that went on. I have never experienced anything like it but it was incredible.

Time For a New Breakfast Table

Let me tell you a little bit about how I operate as a person, in life, in general. When I get my mind set on something, I make it happen. Usually. Lots of times I wake up feeling totally inspired to repaint a room or use my miter saw. And it has to be done that day. Or at least started. Then lots of other times I won’t do anything major for a month or 2. I go in spurts. I write my posts the night before because I’m inspired to do them at that time. I’m not much of a scheduler.

More Habit Shopping, and Cowhide Rugs

I can’t stay off MyHabit and keep looking for good deals. So when good deals are to be had, I have to share. I wrote about Amazon’s My Habit site over a month ago and many of you love it too. These are some of the current sales and items that I dig, and when I saw they had cowhide rugs at great prices, that sealed the deal and then this post was born.

Hi friends happy Monday! I’ve got the best project for you today. And it would make a perfect gift.

Easy DIY Printable Magnets

I have a very cute craft today and one that really surprised me! Every time I use my Silhouette machine I’m amazed. I’m amazed at what it can do. And how quickly it gets it done. And there is an incredible deal Silhouette is offering this month. It’s like a HUGE amount of items and product that’s included in the bundles this month, so keep reading for that.

More Painted Interior Doors | Before and After

Hope you all had a good weekend! I actually took my own advice that I gave to my Facebook fans and painted some more interior doors. And I can’t believe I haven’t done this sooner. Seriously. It was super quick and made a huge impact. So which ones did I do?

Well I painted the inside of our front door…

Bathroom Makeover With Board and Batten, and a Fancy New Fan

Hi all! Man I feel like I’ve been going non-stop lately (which I really have been) but that’s good for y’all since you get to see new projects right?  I love having new things to share and was so happy when I put up some board and batten in the master bathroom! I wanted to give it a little more of a luxury feel without breaking the bank, and easy board and batten was the trick.

Where To Find Inexpensive Poufs and Ottomans

Just wanted to pop in and let you know where you can find those cute pouf ottoman things that you see everywhere, including our new seating area in the living room which many of you asked about. And by the way, thank you for all of the repins! Keep em’ coming. :) But the best deal I have found was at World Market and they are the knitted kind, and super cute.

New Living Room Seating Area!

Hello friends I hope you all had a great weekend. We finally had a cool front in Texas! Today I’m so thrilled to show you all our new living room seating arrangement today! I’ve been itching to do something different in our living room since we only have brown leather furniture in there (which was bought pre-blog days), and we have always needed more seating in there, but more importantly, something to break up all of that leather.

P.S.-keep reading below for a Homegoods giveaway! Plus, I really need your help at winning this challenge so re-pinning this image from THIS link will be MUCH appreciated and I’ll love you forever. Don’t worry I will remind you all again at the end of this post. :)

So here’s the new seating area, and my new non-leather chair, hallelujah.

Why and How We Are Sleeping Better

Happy Friday friends I hope you’ve had a good week! I have talked about sleeping on the blog a few times already. I love to sleep. Probably more than most people. I take naps whenever I can and that’s pretty frequently. We got a new bed here, and then talked about the benefits of magnesium in this post which helps for a good night’s sleep, and today I want to share something else that has rocked our world.

Behind The Scenes

I know that y’all know what I do, obviously. I do fun stuff to our house and write about it and you all get to hear about it.  But what you don’t hear about probably often enough is what goes on behind the scenes, and HOW I am actually able to write about everything and have it disperse on the www. I just felt in my spirit today to give a little recognition to the guy who actually makes that all possible…

How To Paint Stripes | And Painting Stripes on Textured Walls

I find it ironic that I’m doing a post on how to paint the perfect stripes, especially since it took me 3 times to get it right, but practice makes perfect right? And well, my stripes came out pretty darn perfect with our textured walls so it deserves a little attention.

What Life Is Like With New Lights

I wanted to update you all with how our life has changed with new lights. Really. Might sound silly but I promise you it’s the truth. *Spoiler-giveaway at the bottom of post* About a month ago I showed you all where we installed a Lutron Maestro Occupancy Sensor dimmer switch in our hallway, which is now a cool striped mudroom! I loved it then and living with it a month or so, I love it even more.

Rustic and Textured Fall Mantel

Woohoo who’s ready for Fall?! I know I’ve been talking about Fall since the beginning of the month, soooo, you know I am. :) This year for the Fall mantel I decided I was really digging textures and the rustic look, so that’s how the mantel ended up. Quite a difference from last year’s gold and glam mantel! But something about burlap and pretty textures always draw me in so I went for it and came up with this.

An Interview With Genevieve Gorder!

Holy moly did you see that post title? Did it sink in? An interview. With Genevieve Gorder!! Oh my. So yes, I was so fortunate to have a little time last week to chat with her on the phone. I KNOW. I died a little. She is a superstar, and my favorite designer ever, so it was a little nutso to get to speak with her, but jumped at the opportunity.

Mudroom Makeover Under $100! | And A Striped Wall

Woohoo! I am SO excited to finally share this space with you all! Funny thing is though, is that I’ve never really mentioned I was creating a mudroom. Well, I sort of have a long time ago, but nothing detailed. So surprise, you get a full reveal instead of just snippets. :) I did however mention that I had a striping fail (not to be confused with stripping), and this was the little hallway that I was doing the stripes on. Another funny thing is that you’ve never seen this hallway ever on my blog! You’ll see why soon. Until then, here is the mudroom makeover done under $100, and with the striped wall!

5 Tips and Ideas To Decorate for Fall

Hey all! I wanted to do a post about 5 different ways you can decorate for Fall and give you a few tips and ideas since it might seem like a daunting task. With as many styles as I like, I’ve had several different looks each year. And often times I’ll do different styles in different areas of our home just so I have a variety. There are just too many pretty things to choose from this time of year so it’s easy to be indecisive!

My Habit | Shopping

It’s probably no surprise I love to shop. I love to redecorate and look for new things for our home since I have a tendency to grow tired of something probably quicker than most people. And since shopping behind your computer monitor is even better, that’s when I got happy about a new flash sale site on Amazon called MyHabit. Amazon is amazing on its own, so I just assumed MyHabit would be amazing and it is! And that’s why I wanted to let you all know about it because we all love a good deal.

Home Report Card

Happy Wednesday! Have you ever given your home a grade, or kept score on what all projects need to get done? You know, the not-so-fun projects, but the ones that are a necessity to keep your home in 1 piece and running smoothly? Yea, those. I’ll be the first to admit I’m not the best at it. One reason being is because our home was the basic builder brand new home when we moved in. It’s hard to believe we’ve been here 5 years already! So I’ve kind of taken that for granted assuming all is well. Yes, I’m intelligent.

DIY Gold Metallic Table | Furniture Makeover

Hi everyone hope you had a nice weekend! I have been a little gold happy lately. I just can’t help myself. It makes me, well…happy. And we’ve had this little side table in our living room for forever now, and it was pretty beat up. And not my style any longer. So I went gold-happy on it too and made it a very easy DIY gold metallic table!

Simple Fall Decorating and Vignette | With Huge Mercury Glass Vase

Remember last week when I talked about decorating with large vases and accessories? Those large vases really make a statement, and in that post I mentioned that I had just gotten one. I’d call it my first big statement piece as far as accessories go. But anyway, I did some simple Fall decorating and created a little vignette on our entryway table/dresser using said new large vase, and here she is.

How To Decorate With Large Vases and Accessories

First I have to say thank you all for the sweet sweet comments on my smile makeover post! Y’all are so nice and it’s nice you all are rejoicing with me in the new look! :) So today I want to talk about decorating with large accessories, particularly large vases. Whenever you browse around the pretty magazines, one thing you’ll always pretty much notice is a large oversized vase. And if the vase isn’t oversized, the flowers coming out of it will be. Almost an overflowing effect. I’ve gathered a few inspiration pics for you all to study.

A Smile Makeover | New Porcelain Veneers and Crowns

Well guys, today’s post I’ve been very excited to share with you all. You might think I’m nuts, and that’s okay, but it’s these types of makeovers that change your life that are the best ones. When I posted about losing all of 75 lbs of the baby weight a few months back (which I consider one of my best makeovers), something else happened too. Another life process. One of those things in life that you just usually find a reason to put off for years and can make up all sorts of good excuses, and justifiable ones at that! But, I’m thrilled to say that I quit making excuses and made this happen….my smile makeover with new porcelain veneers and crowns.

New Outdoor Patio Additions

Hey guys! Today’s a happy day since my Alabama family is coming into town and staying a week! I’ve been crazy busy like a mad woman getting everything cleaned up and ready.  And the outdoor area wasn’t left behind either. You all know this summer I’ve been creating different WoCave’s, or places that I feel inspired and empowered. To me, that also means places that I can relax and chill. So for this particular WoCave mission I have some new outdoor patio additions to get me to that happy place. :)

Office | In the Bedroom

Hey everyone hope you had a great weekend! We actually had a slight front come through giving us some gorgeous weather! Today I’m excited to show you all our little office in the bedroom. Remember I had mentioned this before last year and how we needed one and even wrote a post on pretty ways to have a desk in your bedroom. I am all for utilizing every inch of your home for whatever purpose you need it to serve. And since many homes don’t have a dedicated office room or an extra room to spare, it’s completely fine to make a little nook in your bedroom, which is exactly what I did.

Replacing The Light Switches

That may not be the most exciting title you’ve ever seen, but trust me, it’s exciting. Why? Because I replaced a regular light switch in our hallway with a Lutron Maestro Occupancy Sensor dimmer switch! Why is this exciting? Because it’s hands free and we don’t have to physically turn on the lights anymore! When we walk in the hallway it detects motion and turns on like magic.

Okra | Roasted With Rosemary

I get asked all the time how I cook my okra. Remember that okra I planted a few months ago in our garden? Man it has really taken off. And because of that we eat okra at least twice a week, sometimes 3. :) If you follow me on Instagram (@decorchick1) you’ve seen an okra picture probably more times than you care to. But, everyone always asks how I make it, and one of my favorites is roasted okra with Rosemary. Mmmm!

Painting Stripes | A Striping Fail

Well yesterday I was on a roll doing a few projects, cleaning the garage, taking care of the garden etc, and then I also got a wild hair and tried painting stripes on a wall. I’ve been wanting to do them for a while and nothing like family coming into town to get your rear in gear. And in my case practically redoing 3 rooms in 1 week. Not really. But sort of.

Anyway…my striping attempt numero uno was a fail.

Do It Herself

Hi all hope you had a lovely weekend! Mine was very productive so that’s always a good feeling. You know I’m all about a little DIY right? DIY or DIH, meaning, do it herself. I went to a DIH workshop a few weeks ago at The Home Depot and wanted to tell you all about it. I love how they empower the ladies to take on those pesky DIY projects. :)

Me and My Homies

Since being back from the Haven Conference and reminiscing while looking at the photos from it, I can’t help but wonder why in several of the pictures I’m flashing gang signs and making my best duck face?

My 7 Favorite Restaurants For Healthy Eating

Hey everyone! I’ve been busy this week getting ready to head out to Atlanta, but this is a post I’ve been meaning to write for a few months now. Remember when I finally shed all of my baby weight (all 75 pounds of it!), several of you would ask me what I ate etc, and I posted a few of my food diaries in those posts too so you could see what I ate on a day to day basis.  Now that it’s past me and the weight is off, I’ve still managed to keep it all off, and have even lost about 7-10 lbs more since that post. Woohoo!  But since this isn’t a perfect world and there are going to be times when you are out and about and you need to grab a bite to eat, or if you just want to go to a nice dinner with your family or something, I wanted to tell you what my 7 favorite places to eat out are, and are places where you have the option to eat well and have it taste good! Even better.

Antique Shopping and a Ghost Story

Hi everyone hope you all had a great weekend. Today I’m going to give you a recap of my shopping trip last week, and also fill you in on a little ghost story about one of the antique stores we went to. Because everyone’s Monday morning should start out with a good ghost story right?

Sofia The First Party

Happy Friday friends! It’s been a crazy summer full of birthdays and we just finished up Emma’s 4th birthday party last weekend. She is really into Sofia the First right now (a new princess) so she wanted a Sofia party. I was worried about topping last years party because Ms. Foofa herself came to her Gabba party, but I didn’t want to pay for a character again this year. So, I was hoping by getting Emma the princess Sofia dress would suffice, and it did. Whew!

For the party, we used a lot of purples, golds, and white and I thought it came out really pretty.

Creating a WoCave, a/k/a A Woman Cave

Have you ever heard of a WoCave, actually pronounced “wo-cah-vay?”  I haven’t either but it sure sounds enticing. We’ve all heard of man-caves, but what about us? What about the women? We need our own little spaces too right? A place to escape from the craziness of the day (or our kids) and just chill. YES, please.

Painted Interior Doors

Happy Monday everyone hope you had a good weekend! I’ve been pondering painted interior doors for quite some time now, so I’m finally coming to you all to help me make a decision. I’m going to do this, and wanted to do it yesternow, but I just couldn’t decide. I love it when I see other people paint their interior doors black and think it looks so sharp. Why haven’t I jumped on the bandwagon yet?! I think I’m going to start by painting our pantry door in the white kitchen, so keep that in mind. If all goes well, then I’ll do the rest. :)

A Not Too Pinteresty Vintage Shabby Chic Ballerina Party

Remember when I wrote a few weeks ago about my thoughts on Pinterest? Well, I really tried to not go overboard for Ellie’s 1st birthday party and I think I succeeded! I had a vision of a plethora of different things for a theme, so I’m calling hers a vintage shabby chic ballerina tutu and pink party. How’s that? While not going overboard, the dessert table was still very pretty I thought.

It’s definitely considered a dirty job too, since I just did ours. See our tile in the kitchen? ……(Readers reading in a reader click over to enter the giveaway)

What Did We Do Before Pinterest?

Ever wonder what everyone did before Pinterest came around? Oh yea, we probably had lives! But really, do you ever think about it? Do you ever think about how blogging as a whole changed completely? And for you readers who don’t have a blog, it’s different for you too. Maybe you see all of these crazy “pin it” buttons around everyone’s blog posts and wonder what in the world is going on. I know I did at first.

But there’s another aspect of Pinterest I want to talk about today and not how blogging is so different these days (even though that’s the truth). But why does it seem everything is Pinterest-perfect these days?

Life After Google Reader?

Well sadly, the death of Google Reader is happening on July 1. That’s a week away. Sadness. Deep sadness. Myself like many of you use Google Reader to read your favorite blogs quickly and see who has a new post etc. Why Google wants to take it away is beyond my comprehension but they are. Nothing we can do about it but cry. I hate change but life must go on. So what are the alternatives?

Baby Girl Nursery Reveal!

Ahhh finally!! I’m SO excited to show you all our little girl’s nursery reveal today! I think this has to be one of my most favorite rooms I’ve completed to date. As you might remember, I decided to go a whole other direction in this room a while back. I finally had a clear vision of the perfect smokey grey paint, paired with soft pale pinks, whites, and touches of gold throughout. And that’s exactly what the end result came to be.

Our Vegetable Garden!!

Oh man I still can’t believe I have a post titled that. Really? Me? A vegetable garden? And it’s thriving? Well it’s true. It’s always been a dream (one of those dreams you think will never happen) of mine to grow some of my own fruits and veggies. Since the weight loss, I still eat tons of vegetables and fruit, and if you follow me on Instagram (@decorchick1) you know I am part of an organic co-op where I get an awesome variety of fruits and veggies every 2 weeks…

Baby Update – 11 Months

Ellie has gotten so big and changed so much over this last month. Still can’t believe she’s almost 1. She’s still the sweetest little thing, is super sensitive like her mama, and is just overall a great baby. I promise if I had complaints I’d say them so you all don’t think I have the most perfect baby that ever lived or something, but seriously, she’s just an easy going girl. Of course I’ll have days where I am ready to pass her off to Daddy right when he walks in the door and days when I just need to be alone kid-free. So I am normal, I promise. Anyway, I love this picture of her.

A Hawaiian Father’s Day Party

Dads are special guys aren’t they? They deserve to be loved on and celebrated just as much as moms on their special day. So remember when me and my husband had the trip of a lifetime to Hawaii a little over a year ago? That was still the best trip ever. But anyway, since my husband (and myself) loved Hawaii so much, I thought it would be fun to have a little Hawaiian themed Father’s Day celebration at the house and get him lots of treats to remind him of that time.

Can Mr. Clean Really Get the Job Done?

Our patio furniture has seen better days I’ll be quite frank. Heck you’ve seen my disaster of a closet, so why not show you other filth right? It’s the least I can do. I actually do enjoy cleaning when I have the time, which is rare. We go outside on the patio all the time, but kind of just “ignore” the nasty. Why we do that to ourselves I have no clue. Case in point, our coffee table out there.

Nursery Update: The Prettiest Monogram Ever

Hey guys! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted about the nursery. I know I know. I won’t even list excuses but I can say that the full room reveal will be written about before she is walking and toddling around okay? Hold me to it. Even though the room has been technically “done” for quite some time, there were a few final finishing touches I needed. And one is this gorgeous monogram I got from Southern Nest. Oh my heavens it’s so pretty!!

A Happy 3 Years and a Look Back

First off happy Memorial Day everyone! Last week marked my blogiversary of 3 years! Crazy how time flies and how there is so much work still left to be done to our home. You’d think that after writing about it for 3 years now that I’d run out of stuff to talk about and there’d be nothing left to do. So not true. These three years of blogging have been truly amazing. I am beyond blessed and don’t take any single day for granted. But let’s talk about how my style has changed for a sec…

I am SO excited about this y’all. And thank you all so much for the sweet comments on the weight loss post I truly appreciate it. And in the weight loss post I mentioned how I am addicted to vegetables and crave them ALL the time. And I also mentioned how I recently joined a produce co-op which I’m also excited about, but why not try our hand at growing a few vegetables right here in our own yard?!

It Took 9 Months to Put It On, and 10 Months to Take it Off! {How To Lose Weight and How I Lost 75 Pounds}

Well I have good news today. If you have followed along in my weight loss journey (I’ve only talked about it once here, and once here where I lost 25 pounds), you all know I gained quite a bit of weight with my 2nd baby. 75 pounds to be exact and tipping the scale over the 200 + lb mark at my doctor’s appointments while pregnant wasn’t exactly the greatest feeling. But I’m not here to talk about how I gained weight while pregnant, because well, duh that’s a given, but I’m here today to show you all how I lost those 75 pounds of baby weight!

Our New Backyard Fort!

There’s a new addition to our backyard and it’s pretty fabulous. Like, it’s kind of a home decor accent for the outdoors (because it looks that good), but on a much larger scale than what I’d buy for something to go inside the house! In fact, it’s pretty huge. Come take a tour of our new backyard fort!

Dirty Little Secrets

You know the kind I’m talking about. Those rooms in your home that just never quite get the royal treatment they deserve and we keep them isolated from everything else. Why do we do that to ourselves? What causes our brain to just set aside that mess (or disaster zone) and just live with it? Why are we so careful about the other rooms in our home making sure they are always picked up and presentable? Case in point, our master bedroom closet. Why have I lived with it like this for 4 or 5 years, hating every second of it, but yet, have still done nothing about it?

I Painted Our Bathroom!

I’m slowly but surely getting rid of the beige walls that are everywhere in our home, and I’ve pretty much succeeded in several of the rooms! I guess the only beige rooms left now are the bathrooms, and the upstairs hallway/catwalk. I haven’t done anything to our bathrooms until recently, and I finally painted ours!

Traveling in Style

How many of you love to travel? I kind of love to and kind of loathe it. I’m such a homebody that leaving home stresses me out.  I LOVE being home. But then there are times, like when we went to Hawaii, where I get really excited about traveling. I guess it just depends on the destination eh?

Decorchick Got a Facelift!!

Okay okay, really a site-lift, but facelift sounded more fun. I’m SO thrilled with it I can’t stand it! It was about 2 years overdue, but hey, at least it’s done now and the vision came to life. I still love my old design too because it reminds me of how this blogging thing all started and where it’s taken me, but I am also excited for the future and what’s to come. If you’re reading in a reader, come and take a tour of the new site!

Surprise! I Redid Our Master Bedroom Again! {Navy and Coral Bedroom}

Yes you read that right. Let me tell you one more time in case you missed it…but I redid our bedroom again!! This makes #4 I think? There wasn’t anything wrong with the old room, but it was just lacking. Lacking life, lacking coziness, and lacking personality. I like the word lack today apparently. But once we got in the new upholstered bed, everything was just grey. Grey I love, but the grey walls, grey bed and grey curtains were just too much together. So now, here is a room I love. Our new navy and coral bedroom!

Some New Mirrors Really Made a Difference! {And Spring Mantel}

Ever since we have had the faux mantel in the entry/living room, I’ve had the same mirrors up on either side flanking it. They were fine, but I really needed something more. Our house has evolved and changed so much since we got that mantel, so I needed some mirrors that look more updated like the rest of the house.  I’ve been considering these mirrors at Target ever since I’ve seen them. Then they finally went half off so I snagged them up.

And we all love jewelry, yes?  Well I recently met up with the lovely and talented Megan from the blogs Honey We’re Home and Honey We’re Healthy (yea, she’s a hottie), and as if operating 2 blogs wasn’t enough, she is now a Stella and Dot stylist too! Don’t know how she has time to do it! But I did a little trunk show here at the house, and I loved it so much that I want to invite you all to come and virtually shop with me because I think you will love it too!

The Next Project…

Hope you all had a great Easter! I wanted to fill you in on what’s going on in this brain of mine. You see, I have a little problem of starting projects and not finishing them. Well I finish them up until the last final details sometimes (like ummm, the nursery!) and then start something new. So last week in my never-ending wheel-spinnin’ brain, I decided I wanted to do something. People are always painting their furniture and such different colors, so instead of white or black which is safe, I’m going to use this color…
