I am so excited about the first ever DIY Buildoff that is happening right now with my friend Philip. Last weekend we both took you all step by step in our stories on building a planter out of 2 boards. We love to inspire you all, but what we love even more is when you actually take action and BUILD. So that’s what we are encouraging you to do. Grab a friend, spouse, parent and build this planter (or get creative) and we will pick our 4 favorites to give $100 Lowe’s gift cards to.

Last week I had the amazing opportunity of attending the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show with Samsung. I loved being able to see firsthand all the new products coming out and how they allow for so much customization in both appearance and function. You know I love beautiful things, but even more than that…I love beautiful things that also solve a problem, and that’s exactly what Samsung is doing.

What a weekend that was! In 48 hours the DIY Dream Team completely transformed a bedroom. It was such an amazing experience working side by side with my friends and giving the homeowners a relaxing retreat. My favorite part of the whole experience was putting in the work with the personal touches to make the space come to life. And if you know me, you know I love accent walls…so of course, the wall was my favorite feature in this room.
I am so excited about this home update I’m about to show you! My house is 24 years old and was built in 1996. I think there are a few features in your home that always automatically date it and tell it’s true age…and one of those is the DOORS. I have been wanting to update these for years, and am finally getting around to it. Here are all the options that I have been weighing.

We are one week out from the DIY Dream Team flying to Georgia and making over Nicole’s master bedroom! It’s been a lot of preparation and planning, but we are ready. Think we can handle finishing it in the 3 days? I sure hope so! haha. I am excited for the projects we have planned for the space, so let me go into detail about what they are!
Before picture of her room:
Nothing makes a bigger impact in a space than a wall treatment, and with a small budget. You know it’s my go to for every space, and we plan to do the same for Nicole’s bedroom. Here are a few of my favorite wall treatments I have done.
We are planning on doing something on all four walls since her room is an odd shape and we want to create balance. We also are planning on using a moody blue on the walls in the HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams paint. Here is our inspiration image.
Here are the wall and paint supplies we will use:
- Purdy brushes
- 1×3 select pine board (for wall treatment
- Zircon Stud Finder
- Kobalt Miter Saw
- Craftsman Nail Gun
- Kobalt Drill
- 3M Painters Tape
2. Art Piece
Another way I love to make a big impact with a budget is through a large scale art piece. Here are a few of my favorites that I have made.
Here is our inspiration image for the wall art we are planning.
Here are the supplies we will use for the wall art:
3. Nightstand Hack
We love the look of THIS nightstand, but it is too short for her space. Ideally, beds and the nightstands should be within 4 inches of the same height. To solve this problem, we are going to add these legs to add to the height! Problem solved!
4. Paint paint paint
And the best DIY tool ever…PAINT! Nicole has a tray ceiling with a ton of detail. To update that area and disguise all that trim, we are going to paint the ceiling with HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams in a flat white Pure White.
We are also going to paint the walls in the same color to freshen up the space
Additionally, we will assemble some new furniture from Lowe’s the whole space is going to all come together!
I can’t wait! Stay tuned…
I can’t wait to show you this build-in desk nook area! Let me take you on a trip down memory lane…when this nook was just a sad space used as a dumping ground for junk. It’s amazing what a few days, some power tools, and some hard work can do to a space. I think this new little office for me might just be my favorite space.
If you’ve been with me for longer than a few weeks, you know that I live in Las Vegas and have been battling with the awkward nooks and niches since moving in a few years ago. In most spaces I’ve removed them, but in my bedroom I have one nook left…and I came up with the perfect idea to work with it! I am about to show you progress on my master bedroom BUILT-IN desk nook with Lowe’s. The main element in this space is going to be some accent trim with a DIY wall, and of course a desk. Ready to see what I’ve been up to?
Here are all my favorite things that I am rounding up for you for the perfect Christmas gifts! I have home, beauty, general, and some favorite kid gifts. These are all items I personally own and love. Happy shopping!
