DIY Yarn Wrapped Rope Basket Sewing Tutorial

This DIY rope basket is made out of piping cord and very easy to sew. You can wrap some yarn around parts of the cord to add a dash of color to the basket. Make it into a fabric basket by wrapping your favorite fabric scraps instead of yarn. This post is written as a collaboration with JOANN Fabrics
I'm kind of obsessed with storage boxes like these fabric covered boxes I made a couple of years ago. Storage containers don't have to be boring, but can also be cute and functional. I've been wanting to make a rope basket for years and decided to finally try my hand at it. I was happy to find that JOANN Fabric had enough piping cord to give it a try. 

DIY Country Wedding Decor

Weddings can be so expensive and now days you can do so many things yourself and still have it be a huge success!
My DIY Wedding Reception
Sierra here, I don't post often but I'm the blonde one (literally, not figuratively). As a previous event planner I knew exactly what I wanted for my wedding and lucky for me my family is full of DIY people (especially Havalah) and so we were able to pull of what I like to call the Celebration of the Year without spending too much. 

DIY Colorful Wooden Pacifier Clip

These DIY natural wood pacifier clips are very easy to make and can be customized with color blocked wood beads for a fun, colorful baby clip. They are even perfect for a quick baby shower gift. 
Remember those color blocked stained wood bead garland I made last year? Well, I had so many of those beads left over, I decided they'd be really fun to add to binky/teething baby clip. Both my sisters just had boys, so it was a perfect time to try it out. 

One Room Challenge Bathroom Laundry Room Update

Ok, so time for a One Room Challenge update on our bathroom and laundry room remodel. Check out all our One Room Challenge Posts HERE.

 Have you watched the Great Interior Design Challenge on Netflix?? Well they have 3 days to redo/update a room. 3 days! But they also have a team of helpers and time blocked out just for that. I think we could totally do the bathroom and laundry room that fast if we had a team of helpers, but I guess that's why this is a 6 week challenge :). 

There is still so much to do in such a short time, so hopefully we'll get most of it done before the 6 weeks is over. 

The Bathroom

It was a slow process figuring out the board and batten. We had so much going on and we were also trying to figure out spacing and height, etc. 
 My husband decided to build each panel separate before putting on the wall. So we have two panels done. They are really just sitting there, they haven't been nailed on yet. Hopefully I can do a more detailed step by step soon.
We also decided to get a vanity. We were planning on keeping our pedestal sick, but it was so small and so much wasted space underneath it. Plus, since this connected to our laundry room, we decided it was worth getting a new vanity. I really want to paint it blue to match the board and batten but my husband doesn't think the paint would stick (since it's not real wood and might not be possible to sand). 
We're also replacing the oval mirror with a rectangle mirror which we are going to make our own wood frame. we are Inspired by this one over at I Heart Organizing

For lighting, I'm trying to convince my husband about this Progressive Lighting from Lowes:

Laundry Room

I honestly don't think we're going to be able to get the doors done for the cabinets before the 6 weeks is up, but at least the cabinets are up. 
I did paint trim and paint the door with a $5 home depot paint sample (which came in semi gloss). I'm not sure how well the paint will hold up, but I was super pleased it covered the door with the whole sample. I love the color I picked. 
 Next to the door we're going to add some wall hooks like these:

On the opposite wall, I really want to add custom peg board with shelves. 
I'm inspired by this pegboard from The Merry Thought. This probably won't happen before the 6 weeks is up, but I'm going to make it happen.

I would love to change the laundry room light and I have my eye on this one from Lowes

Ok, that's all we have for you today. Hopefully next week we'll be finished, but I don't think it's going to happen. Wish us luck!

Small Laundry Room and Bathroom Makeover Week 1 || One Room Challenge

This is the week 1 of the One Room Challenge Spring 2018. We are participating by making over our laundry room AND our small bathroom right next to it. Follow us along the next 6 weeks. 

As we slowly been updating our house, one of rooms I've dying to fix was our laundry room. It was functional with wire shelves above the washer and dryer, but those shelves were wobbly and I could never keep them tidy.
