At the beginning of this year, as some of you may know, we welcomed twin daughters into the world. They’ve slept in bassinets and cribs for a while now, but every once in a while we find ourselves all on the bed together, and once you throw a dog or two in there, it gets really crowded, really fast.
We’re expecting twins early next year, so we recently tackled the nursery, and specifically, the herringbone-style accent wall that we’ve had our eyes on for a while. We saw a few projects online and on Pinterest and new we wanted to do it for our twins.
About a month ago, we found out we were having two girls, so we decided to do the nursery with three gray walls and one pink accent wall. The pink we chose is very subtle and we know it’s difficult to fully see the color in the pictures on this post. But, you can see the process and if you use a darker color, then you’ll be able to see the contrast on your accent wall even better.
One of the best parts about coming home after a long day at work or school, or whatever, is plopping down on the couch and cuddling or spooning a pillow.
This is even better during the holiday season, when you know the pillow is potentially holiday-themed.

Albert Camus once said that “autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
Personal philosophies aside, we agree. Even though fall seems like a time of winding down and preparing for the dark days of winter, it’s also a fun time to see the transition in nature. And in people. Some people get weird this time of year. Sometimes that’s a good weird, other times it’s a scary one. But that’s why they say different strokes for different folks.
Anyway, we love fall and we love wreaths, so without further ado, here’s a collection of DIY fall wreaths that we found to be particularly inspiring this year. Enjoy!
Every year, we seem to have the same debate about Christmas ornaments. Do we make the tree look like it belongs in Macy’s, with expertly positioned ornaments and lights? Or do we give it some personality and make some funky ornaments that no one else will have?
Usually we end up somewhere in the middle. And no matter which side of the fence your family’s on when it comes to ornaments, you can use these simple DIY ideas to create your own Christmas ornaments.
Around this time every fall, we ask ourselves, “what kind of Christmas ornaments can we make this year?”
Inevitably it came down to this: candy cane ornaments. We shall make you.
For these simple ornaments, we used regular candy canes, jute, some hot glue and different ribbons and bells to add as “accent pieces,” if you want to put it that way.
A good headboard can make a bedroom seem more comfortable and relaxing. On the other hand, a bad headboard can make you want to stay up for days on end. Such is the importance of headboards.
Lick your finger and flip through any home store catalog and you’ll find plenty of fabric headboards, but they might also cost you an arm, a leg and perhaps a digit on the arm. Instead, consider making your own DIY fabric headboard – save time, have fun and make something customized and personal.
