Hey Everyone!! I am so beyond excited to be back today to party down with some other bloggers and share our versions of DIY wooden door mats!!! Here is my mat!!
Hey everyone, Happy Monday to you!! I am bubbling over with excitement to be back on the blog today with some really great news!! I am sorry I have been missing around here lately, we went on a ski vacation and my littles were sick for a while, and then we found out we will be moving…soooo my DIY projects have been on hold for a bit, but this was exciting enough to stop packing and spend a little time with my tools!!
I have teamed up with The Home Depot and four other bloggers to bring you a DIY Workshop Virtual Party…we have all created versions of this wooden door mat that will be an upcoming DIY Workshop at your local Home Depot!
My version of this door mat has to stay under wraps until next week, Monday the 21st, but in the mean time you can lock in your spot at your local Home Depot to get some hands on experience building this beauty by registering below!!
Their workshops are FREE and available at all of their locations for do-it-yourselfers of all ages and skill levels!! You can learn how to make home décor projects, how to operate tools, and how to make simple home repairs!! They also have a three different types of workshops: Do-It-Yourself (DIY), Do-It-Herself (DIH), and kids!!

See you back here Monday March 21st for the reveal of my door mat! Have a great week everyone!!
Well hello again!! I have been so busy in my garage building new things for my dining room…I am just so excited I guess, I can’t quit!! 🙂 I am back to share the matching knockoff West Elm Emmerson dining bench to match the table I posted on Monday!!
I now need to definitely drill more holes in the table top…They are not nearly as obvious as the ones on the bench!!
Hey there everyone! I am back today to share with you the faux pallet wood tutorial explaining how I finished the table I posted yesterday! See the Knockoff West Elm Emmerson Dining Table HERE!! I definitely spent less time than I thought I would to get the faux pallet wood look, which is always exciting…because let’s be honest, it pretty much NEVER happens! Lol! I can’t say it’s exactly what I wanted it to look like, but I do love it even if it isn’t perfect!
Hey there everyone!! My oh my!! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that waaaayyyy back in JULY, I posted my new dining table, right after getting it built! I was BEYOND excited to have built a Knockoff West Elm Emmerson Dining Table, my Dad and I spent two days getting it built, it was just perfect, we hand planed it, sanded it to a buttery finish…it was time for me to distress and stain it…but I left it sitting in his shop…all this time!! Why you ask? Well, honestly, because I wanted it to look JUST like my inspiration piece, the West Elm Emmerson Dining Table, but I was sooooo afraid I was not going to be able to pull off the ‘old wood’ look that I wanted, so instead of testing stains for a few days and knocking it out that same week…I let it sit…and sit…and sit some more!! Sometimes I make myself soooo angry!! I do not understand why I get scared and won’t just go for it, I will put it off, and put it off, until all the sudden, one day I jump in knee deep and just do it, why do I have to procrastinate for days, weeks, or even months before jumping in?? I may never know…but what I do know is that I LOVE my new table!!
I am THRILLED that I FINALLY finished it!! Now I have a blank slate here in the dining room and I can’t wait to bring so many diy projects to this room!! Luckily, you can’t see the absolute mess behind me that I created making this room a blank slate! Let’s just get another look at this table shall we!! Hehe!!
So, as I mentioned in my Christmas Tree Crate Stand post, I was LOVING all the flocked trees I was seeing on Instagram this year!! They had me ready to run down and spend hundreds on a new tree…of course, that was only for a short period of time, then that famous little lady popped into my head and said, “Why spend all that money on a new tree…I bet there’s a way to flock your own that you already have!!” I can’t get away from that lady, but I’m kinda glad because she saves me tons of money!! 🙂
