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.
New garage…new inspirational quote! I loved having a HUGE quote on the wall of the original Angela Rose Home. Not only did it bring some sunshine into a place I hang out all the time, it served as a reminder for my entire family that it’s not until we actually take that leap (and potentially fall) that we realize we can fly. If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that every project is so much more than just DIY. So while I am adding some inspiration to my new garage, I wanted to share how to make your own quote wall so that you can add your own inspiration to a special place in your home.
They say, “Leave things better than you found them.” And that’s exactly what I’ve always tried to do. So much of my heart and soul has gone into making the original Angela Rose Home everything I could dream of. I may be moving, but this home, the beginning of Angela Rose Home, will always be my baby. I wanted to highlight a few favorite projects from the first Angela Rose Home, so here are my 5 favorite DIY projects
Have you ever had a spot in your house that is begging for a light fixture, but the wiring just isn’t there? Calling an electrician to rewire your wall for sconces and light fixtures can get really expensive, which is why I got so excited when I figured out how to add working sconces without hardwiring them into the wall. I want you to have the lighting of your dreams too, so let’s walk through how to add a working light fixture without hardwiring it.
Picking a paint color is fun because it can transform a space into something fresh and new. There are variations of white paint, modern bold paint shades, and of course my favorite…greens! The possibilities are exciting but, have you ever walked up to the paint counter, after spending possibly too much time trying to find the right color, and then felt totally lost because you then had to pick a paint sheen? Don’t worry it happens more often than you think. This is why I am sharing how to choose a paint sheen for your home.
If you were looking to change a space in your home what type of project would you think of doing? Big projects are so fun, but I also love that you can change your space by only using paint. Paint is such a great way to add color, personality, and fun. Come see how easy it is to transform your space with paint.
