About a month ago I headed out to HighPoint, NC with 8 other bloggers to take part in the Design Dash hosted by La-Z-boy, and it was SO MUCH FUN! What’s the Design Dash, you ask?! Well, they gave us 30 min to run through their HUUUUGE showroom tagging everything that we thought we would need to design a room. It was so crazy! We were handed a picture of the room as the 30 minutes began, and I totally lucked out because my space was STUNNING, look at those ceilings! I had no idea how 30 minutes was going to be enough time, but honestly everything I picked in the first 10 min went into my room and the rest got cut, shows that you should listen to your first instincts in design! The next day we had about 4 hours to style our room, and LOVE how mine turned out. EVERY thing in this room is from La-Z-boy, can you believe it?!? I want to transport this room to my Barnhouse renovation.
Ok, now the best news, if you vote for my room design HERE, you are entered for a chance to win $15,000 in furniture from La-Z-Boy, so you can have your room look like this, AAAAAHHHH!!!! Go vote now! It only takes a few minutes!!!
Check out more about my room in this cute video!
This mirror was a SHOWSTOPPER! The scale was amazing with the tall ceilings and the gold brought the right amount of warmth to the room.
I am in love with the fabric on the Bellevue High Swivel chairs! I am getting this same pattern put on a Chair and a half for my latest renovation.
This charred root coffee table was stunning and was perfect to ground the center of the room. They also had it in natural wood, which I loved and if I had to do it all over again, I might have picked.
I loved how this little faux leather ottoman was stylish and multi-functional as a side table or could be swung around to put your feet up on.
This solid wood desk had a antique feel that fit the room perfectly. I styled it up with old letters and can picture this in the office of the Barnhouse!
For all the shopping details and the voting head HERE!! The contest ends TODAY so make sure you get your vote in for the chance to win $15,000 worth of furniture from La-Z-Boy!!! Which is amazing because everything in my room can be found at their stores!!! Now if only the vaulted ceilings came with the furniture! Thanks to La-z-Boy for including me in this year’s Design Dash, it was an absolute blast!
I had so much fun making the DIY Braided Rope Wreaths with Brotherlast year, when they asked me to partner up again this year, I said ” Yes! Let’s keep the tradition going!” For this years ornament, I challenged myself to use a material I have not used for holiday decorating in the past, and since I am fresh off the Barnhouse renovation, I thought tile would be a fun way to decorate our first Christmas tree in this home! If you don’t have any extra tile at home, no worries, a sheet like these only cost $10-$20 dollars at the hardware store and can create up to 60 ornaments!
This is my first time using gold foil letters, and they are SO EASY, and look incredible, I am obsessed! I guarantee anyone you give these to will be wowed it’s a super quick DIY, less than 90 seconds each. And then to top it off, print out a sweet message on the Brother P-touch Embellish Ribbon & Tape Printer to create a super personalized present or mark each year’s ornament.
I marked our first year as The Yolos, and one for each of our pups (complete with a little puppy symbol on each of their ribbons 🙂 I am SO excited with how these turned out, and to make new one every year out of tile from each of our renovations! All the step and supplies are after the break. (more…)
This Thanksgiving is SO special to me because my guy and I are getting married!! If you have been following along on ISPYDIY Instagram, I have been sharing some sneak peeks of our DIY wedding, and one project I am excited to take on is the charcuterie table!! And I am excited to partner up again with my longtime sponsor, Krylon® Brand, to give a thrifted table a makeover. It honestly brings me so much joy to create these cheese boards!!!
I was looking for a round table so friends could gather around & snack before the ceremony, and I was beyond excited when I spotted this one at Goodwill for $30!! But wait, it gets better, when you flip the top it’s a bumper pool and poker table, AMAZING! So after the food is gone, we can fire up the games. The only downside was that the “wood” aka cheap veneer was chipping and I did not love the orangey color. So I thought it would be fun to paint it with Krylon® Brand Chalkboard Paint, to give it a matte black finish, which also could be used for writing fun messages and keeping score! I also found some white and wood candle sticks at the second hand store and gave them a spray painted makeover with Krylon ColorMaster™ Paint + Primer in Matte Bordeaux and Brushed Metallic Champagne Nouveau. I am obsessed with the dark and moody vibe of the Bordeaux color, and Champagne Nouveau mixed in perfectly with my antique gold pieces. After I painted two coats on the table and let it dry, I started building my cheese board. I stuck to the color theme of the wedding, dark reds and greens with brass and wood accents, and absolutely love how it turned out and now I have a reference for my wedding day!
