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!
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.
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.
