Alright so I’m going to show you guys what I did for these crafts:

Bought this frame at Good Will for under a dollar. I originally wanted to just do the inside yellow and keep the gray border, but the spray paint kindof got everywhere and it just turned out to be a hassle.

So I had a paper towel by this to wipe the spray paint off my hands, and the wind blew it onto the frame and made these weird marks and when I tried spray painting over it, you could still tell. So I just did it all over and it ended up looking kindof cool.

I couldn’t figure out how to get the hooks into the frame to hold the necklaces so I just hooked them over the top. It looked great for recruitment, but it ended up being kindof a pain in the ass, so it’s currently being unused on the top shelf of my closet. I’m going to take it home to have my Dad help me over break. Let me know if you have any suggestions!


How to Make a Shared Room Cute (Sorority / Dorm Room)

Leave a comment

So, when you share a room with 3 other people and have to deal with 2 bunk beds and numerous dressers and everyone’s shit, you have to make it cute, especially for sorority recruitment. My sorority house is a Historical Landmark, so we can’t paint or do anything to make it look more modern because it has too look like it originally did. I have a love-hate relationship with this fact because I loveeee modern decor.Β Here’s what I did to make my little niche cute.

Keep checking back to see the rest of what I did for my room!

Belated Thanksgiving Post


My Thanksgiving break couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m in that point of the semester where I’m just about checked out of school. It seems almost everyone I’ve talked to is in that same boat, which is comforting (knowing I’m not alone) but also kindof bad. I was so excited to see my family and do some Black Friday shopping. My dad and sisters surprised me by building me a room! When I went off to college my youngest sisters used to share a room but one of them took my old room, so when I’d come home for breaks I was sleeping on the couch and it sucked. Not gonna lie, I definitely let everyone know how much I hated it. But I never in a million years expected anyone to do anything about it! It’s not completely done, and I’m excited because I always need a project to work on and it has become my winter break project for this year. I’ll for sure have a lot of pictures up.

Here is some random Thanksgiving stuff I came across online and liked. Keep checking back because I’m FINALLY going to post all of the furniture up-cycles I’ve done, and a bunch of awesome gift ideas from our initiation week.

You could have Thanksgiving anytime with this single serving sweet potato!

I have so much to be thankful for πŸ™‚ Especially all of my followers! Thanks for the supportttt.

I don’t have a tutorial for this one, but it sure is pretty! Leave a comment if you know of a tutorial.

Aww! Just nail holes into a can. You could spraypaint the can too.

I Know it’s Late But Here’s My Harry Potter Post!

Leave a comment

So I absolutely refused to see the movies until I read the books. When I was younger I won the 4th book in a contest, and it was the first book to come to America! So I got really into the series and read all the books. But then I never got around the the 7th one, so I have yet to see the last 2 movies! I have been re-reading the first 6 until I get around to buying or borrowing the 7th one from someone. Although thanks to twitter and Facebook I already know what happens! 😦

Every time I think of a good blog post theme, I realize that someone out there has figured out a cute way to propose using said theme haha. Enjoy!
