Girl’s Room Gallery Wall

Girl's Room Gallery Wall | A Diamond in the Stuff

It's hard to believe, but my "little" girl is turning 10 next month. I can't handle it so I'm going to quickly move on and not ACTUALLY think about that. It was pretty evident that she needed to have a little "big" girl sprucing up in her room. She has had the same theme in her room since she was born; a garden theme. Up until this point it was pink, green, and white. It was also very little girl. Which seemed fine until we all realized she will soon be an official tween. So it was time I asked … [Continue reading...]

Spring Monogram Mantel

Spring Monogram Mantle | A Diamond in the Stuff

I am ashamed to say that after Christmas my mantel hasn't been much to look at. I haven't felt inspired to do much with it until Spring hit. Then I got the itch to decorate but I was stumped on what I wanted to do. I wanted something bright and happy but nothing too fussy. I had been wanting to put up a wooden monogram for quite sometime so I decided my new mantle would become my Spring Monogram Mantel. Once of the first things I knew I wanted to add to my new mantel was these old wood … [Continue reading...]

Sewing Table Makeover

Sewing Table Makeover

Sorry for the radio silence this week. I was getting ready for a huge maker’s fair this past weekend. As promised, it was amazing! My only issue is that because I’m selling there, I don’t get the opportunity to walk around and see all the other maker’s stuff. Sad face. The turnout was great and […]

DIY Aqua Storage Cabinet

DIY Aqua Storage Cabinet | A Diamond in the Stuff

Every few years we move. Every move we have a new home with a new configuration. Our last home had two great hall closets and this house has zero. Zero hall closets. So we’ve had to get creative. There was a spot at the end of our hallway that was the perfect spot for a […]
