DIY Rainbow Circle Shelf2019 is already shaping up to be the year of organizing DIYS over here! With that being said, I thought it was about time to organize my glasses collection because I have a bad habit of laying them all around the house… which leads me to spending time everyday trying to remember where I last had them. Really, it’s a problem. The open shelving of this DIY Rainbow Circle Shelf not only helps me see all my glasses at once, but it’s a great reminder to not just set them down as I please.

DIY Mounted Wall Desk for Two

DIY Mounted Wall DeskHappy 2019 friends! What better way to start the new year than by getting your work area organized?!

DIY Candy Cane Wreath

DIY Candy Cane WreathOne of my favorite projects that I made for our home this year is this candy cane wreath! Since we live in an apartment building, and can’t have anything on our front door (dumb, I know), I thought it would be fun to bring a little cheer to the doors inside. And get this, it only takes 10 minutes to make, and requires little skill! I’d even bet money that you could make this after a few glasses of spiked egg nog. Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything. Here’s how:  Continue reading…
