GUYS!!! I am so happy that we get to keep doing these Design classes together!
Let me start with WHY I started these classes and what I hope you all get from them. As women and moms we spend a majority of our time in our homes, and often we don’t take the time, or don’t know how, to make our homes a place we love to be. I believe with my whole heart that you need to live somewhere you LOVE!! I hope that taking one of my classes can help teach you and inspire you to put the time into your home that it, you and your family deserve! You DESERVE to live somewhere that makes you happy and functions for your family. You don’t have to have your “dream house” or thousands of dollars to make your home beautiful. I will teach you simple and effective ways to transform your home into the cozy, loving space you have dreamed of for your family. A clean and beautiful home improves your quality of life dramatically. You will leave feeling confident to tackle that gallery wall or put together those kids rooms FINALLY! On top of that we will always be fed and soda-ed up at one of my classes and that too is the key to happiness! Can’t wait to finish off the year with the Tablescape class and dance party! Next year will be full of classes too and I am giddy to announce them! THANK YOU FOR SHOWING UP and being the most amazing friends a girl could ask for! Let’s love where we live RIGHT NOW and be happy RIGHT NOW!
I am so excited to be working with National Hardware to show you just how AMAZING their barn door slider hardware LINKED HERE is! They sent me this product for free but the opinions I give you are my own. They have beautiful designs and a soft close accessory LINKED HERE to keep your (ahem) ok MY kids from slamming the door open and closed.
On top of being cute to look at and practical they are easy to install. I am going to verbally walk you through how to instal while Ty does the actual work! Ty built this beautiful door for our master and I can’t wait to get it put up!
First step, lay out all of this beautiful hardware and make sure you have all of the pieces and tools you need. You need a power drill, wrench, stud finder and level.
Then you attach the header board to the studs through the wall. We don’t need this step because our shiplap acts as a header board and is secured to studs. Make sure the header board is level so that the door hangs square.
Second, Center the track on the header and mark the spot. Drill a hole where marked and attach the bolts to the header board. Repeat this step and secure each bolt with fasteners.
Next, attach the rolling pieces to the actual door using template provided by national hardware.
They have thorough steps provided in the kit you purchase.
These “U” shape pieces are the reason I chose this barn door kit because it mimics the shape of my Magnolia bed and makes my design heart happy!
After, you can just slide the u shaped hardware into the main bar.
Then attach the stoppers to keep the door safe on the track. You can then place the floor stopper by screwing it into the floor.
One of my favorite parts is attaching this beautiful streamlined door handle.
When all of the pieces come together you are left with a beautiful and easy sliding door.
I was so thrilled to partner with them because of the amazing quality products they provide. If you have been wanting a sliding barn door make sure you to visit National Hardware for the BEST most stylish hardware LINKED HERE I have been able to find!
I remember growing up I had an entire bedroom of wicker furniture. White wicker chairs and settee and of course I loved it! Ha! This trend is back in style, which means I am officially old. However it has a more boho twist these days and wicker is best left in its raw wood form. Baskets, benches and light fixtures are best served in wicker! Here are three reasons why I can’t get enough.
•1. Wicker adds SO MUCH TEXTURE! If you are a neutral lover like me then you know we need to add visual interest any where we can and natural colored wicker baskets are a great way to do that. They really warm up a space and can be a beautiful and functional way to hide all the crap we have.
•2. Mixes well with any style. It gives dreamy boho vibes with out having to commit to that as the entire theme of your home. The arched pattern adds whimsy to the squares up spaces we seem to create for our selves to live in. I can literally not get enough of it on furniture and baskets! I think arched cane wicker is my actual love language!
•3. I can’t get enough of the COLOR! The warm wood tones that accompany this modern day wicker trend makes my heart sing. I often get hired to Design homes based on the fact that they like how I create “warm/cozy” spaces. Wicker is basically the greatest way to add warmth. That color is like a dreamy sunset that wraps you up in it. Wicker light fixtures take that warmth to the next level with the way they diffuse the light around your room.
If you are looking to cozy up a space, look no further then a wicker basket or light fixture! Add it to your shelves or floors and you will be so happy to see that you have created that “feeling” you were looking for with a little bit of wicker!
