Hey All! Excited to share with you an amazing giveaway sponsored by my longtime partner, BLACK+DECKER – they’re giving away ALL these lawn and garden tools! Since our family has been staying home for the last month, we decided to tackle a project we have been talking about for a while now. There was nowhere to store all our BLACK+DECKER lawn and garden tools, so over the last couple weeks we built a DIY shed that will double as lawn storage and a workshop. HOW CUTE did it turn out?!? Still working on a name, maybe the Barnette? Or instead of a She-shed, how about a We-shed, ha! The shed is not quite done (I have a couple fun ideas for the interior), so stay tuned for a full reveal and ALL the DIY details.
As for the BLACK+DECKER Giveaway, ALL the tools below will be included in the prize for one lucky winner! To enter, click here!
With respect to 20V MAX* – Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18. With respect to 40V MAX* – Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 40 volts. Nominal voltage is 36. ARV – approximate retail value.
If you are not a lucky winner, don’t worry. I’ve included the Amazon links to each product so you can get what you need delivered to your door. (If you remember our backyard post from last Summer, you know how much I love my battery powered BLACK+DECKER lawn mower!)
This giveaway comes at the perfect time, because we are amped about getting our landscaping dialed in. Now that we have a shed, and it’s well stocked with BLACK+DECKER tools, we are going to document the process of making our backyard a family oasis and upping the curb appeal. Stay tuned for more outdoor content and get your tools now so you can follow along!
You have no idea how happy I am that it’s finally warm in the Midwest! I spent last weekend putting all my winter clothes into storage and moving my Spring/Summer wardrobe to the front of my closet. After moving studios and apartments a couple times over the last few years, I have taken on a more minimal lifestyle, and am trying to only hold on to the items that I use all the time…because you know how quickly things can pile up! I usually donate most of my stuff, but end up holding on to items I spent a bit more on with the plan to sell, but never seemed to get around to it. The good news, Ebay makes it super easy to list your items for sale, so my designer bags can find a new home!
Check out how easy it is: 1. List and sell it – First take a few photos of your items and list them to sell, follow the steps here. 2. Ship it – Once your stuff sells pack it up, use eBay labels to get a discount on shipping, then send on off to the new owner. 3. Get paid – Sign up for PayPal for a fast, easy, and safe way to get paid on eBay.
Pinterest released there 2017 Trend Report for home decor, and I was excited to see I’ve already been adding some of the top trending ideas to my designs! Plus, there are a few I have been dying to try… removable wallpaper (+355%)…yes please! I thought it would be fun to share a few of my faves, and spot them in my room makeovers. A “No Closet” Closet (+50%) – When I madeover my friends’ nursery in their condo, we had to get creative in the small space and create a place to hang Baby Girl’s clothes with a branch and twine. Nursery makeover here!
Off Season Storage (+160%) : I am all about finding storage that doubles as decor. For Liam’s playroom we used two shelves horizontally to display his current favorite toys, and tuck away the other in wooden storage boxes. Camp room makeover here! Shower Plants (+302%) : It’s impossible to forget to water these plant! I added them to give a little life to a tiled bathroom. Hanging them gives a pop of greenery, while keeping the floor space clear. Bathroom makeover here!
Vertical Bar Car (+303) : Ok, to be fair, this one might be cheating because the trend is actually creating a shelving unit on the wall that is used as a “bar cart” for small spaces…but I think this little one on wheels would be perfect for anyone lacking square footage. Bar cart post here!
Round Mirrors(+35%) : Use round mirror in bedrooms and bathrooms for functional and fashionable look. Woodsy bedroom makeover here!
Accessories as Decor (+144%) : Instead of buying expensive art, use your hats and jewelry as decor. It adds your personal style to a space and double as space saver. Woodsy room makeover here!
