The latest area of my home I have been working on is my bedroom. My whole goal is to create a peaceful spot just for me and I could not be happier with how everything is turning out! My most recent project in this space was transforming an awkward nook into a beautiful electric fireplace feature wall. It has been a really fun project! I’m sharing the steps for this electric fireplace DIY with custom surround so that you can have one too!
Did the groundhog see its shadow this year? I’m not sure if we are in for a longer winter or an early spring, but either way I can feel the change coming! I love spring because it gives a sense of new-ness and a fresh start. If you know me, that’s kind of my thing. I love embracing a new beginning! Start fresh by welcoming the new season with these 5 easy ways to update your porch for spring.
There’s a few questions I get asked a lot. One of them is how to choose the right flooring shade for your home. Another question I get asked a lot is what type of mascara I use. IYKYK. We do a little bit of everything over here while we are DIYing. Since the question about flooring color comes up so often, I thought I would put together a how-to so that you find the perfect match!
There are two things I am always looking for when it comes to my house…1. Creative ways to decorate and 2. Ways to keep things organized. In all of my DIY adventures, floating shelves are a great way to accomplish both of those things (and more). I love being able to conquer that space of both function and beauty so I am sharing why you need floating shelves in your space.
One of my favorite ways to wrap up a DIY transformation is with pieces of artwork. Artwork is super affordable to DIY and it looks so cool. Then once you are done figuring out what kind of artwork you want, all you have to do is hang it! Do you know how to hang photos the easy way? So many things in life are complicated, hanging pictures doesn’t need to be complicated too. So, whether you are looking to hang a gallery wall or large-scale artwork, I’ve got the best hack for how to hang photos the easy way.
The next space I am DIYing in the newest Angela Rose Home is my primary bedroom. It feels like the right time to transform this space into a sanctuary that is just for me (and of course my kids when they are with me). My primary bedroom is going to be full of SO MANY good projects like a faux fireplace, ceiling details, and of course a bench built right into the window space. A girl has got to have a nook where she can meditate and dream big dreams (maybe even cry a little). Am I right? Benches are such a great way to utilize nooks and crannies in your home that may not have a purpose. I am going to walk you through the process of how to DIY a built-in bench so you can have one too!
I may not be the first person to whip up a homemade meal from scratch, but I do enjoy being in the kitchen. Especially when the kitchen design is full of personality! It is the DIYer in me. I’m inspired by the designs around me. Not feeling inspired by your kitchen? Your kitchen needs to be the perfect place for gathering, deep conversations, and impromptu dance parties. This is why I am sharing how to upgrade a builder-grade kitchen. I want you to have the kitchen of your dreams!
Tell me, did you survive the holidays? If you have been following along with me on social media, you know that this holiday season had its ups and downs. With all of the things that happened for our family in 2022, I was feeling pretty lonely and didn’t have much Christmas spirit. I was thinking the kids and I were going to keep things low-key and easy because I really didn’t have the bandwidth to do much of anything. But in the end, we made a full-blown mini Hallmark movie. Crazy how things change so drastically! The season ended up having an overpouring amount of Christmas spirit so I wanted to share the biggest (and best) thing I learned this holiday season.
How do you feel about bathrooms? To me, bathrooms should not be boring! Yes, they serve a purpose, but who says they can’t be fun too? One of my favorite places to create a vibe is actually in the bathroom. The space is small, but there are so many fun things you can do to start adding personality in your bathroom.
You know me, I LOVE doing DIY projects! It’s that initial spark of an idea that transforms into a creative process of planning with trial and error. I cannot get enough! There is just something about creating something yourself and letting the creative juices flow. It is my happy place. While I do LOVE all types of projects, the process isn’t always easy. It is easy to get stuck or frustrated during the stages of the project especially when you are trying something new. The key is knowing how to get unstuck on a DIY project.
