DIY Coffee Cup Rack

DIY Coffee Mug Rack

A cup of coffee at 7pm is not an entirely wise idea. You could argue though that it sometimes leads to fun things, like this DIY Coffee Cup Rack! That was the case the other night, an evening coffee lead me to being wide awake and ready to build something at 9pm. What better item to build than a coffee cup rack? This project was very simple and I was able to use some wood that I already had on hand. No special trips to the hardware store for anything. The one I made measures 14" across by 30" long. You can definitely adjust the measurements to make it la[...]

Bringing Fall Into Your Home

Bringing the outside indoors with fall neutrals

Fall is my favourite season. The crispness is the air, the crunch of the leaves as you walk down the street and the colors. I LOVE THE COLORS. We have some of the most amazing sunsets on the prairies and it, combined with the vibrant hues on the leaves is pretty breathtaking. The only thing I dislike about Fall is that winter follows way too quickly! Once September hits and the kids are back in school I'm able to find the time to infuse some of that fall feeling into our décor. Fall décor doesn't have to boast bold & vivid hues, a neutral palette can make[...]
