Step by Step DIY Black sheepskin bench with acrylic legs

Who's ready for a fun DIY?! lol
Here we go! 
Step 1
Buy bench with acrylic legs at Home goods for $130 (this is the smaller size of 2 benches that they carry) It's pretty cute as is but I wanted to make it more me.
 Set 2 Buy black sheepskin rug off etsy this is a 3" by 5"

 Step 3 Fold sides over and use upholstery staples and stapler (found mine at Joanne fabrics) to attach to underside of bench. I did not have to cut at all because it fit perfectly. It was long enough but not too long, I wanted it to go around the underside just a bit so it was more "fluffy"

 Step 4 Continue on with both sides with staples being about an inch apart so its good and secured. 
 Step 5 For the end I just folded it just the same as if you were folding paper on a present.
 Folding both ends in...
 Then taking that hanging triangle piece and folding it up.

 Step 6 Staple all along the edge to match sure you attach each fold. Be liberal with your staples so it is good and secure.


 Stella had fun picking up the extra fuzzies and throwing them away.

White Hot for Spring

I don't know about you but I am SO ready for some warmer weather! I think our latest trip to Hawaii (check out my vlog for the trip here) really got me excited to soak up some more sun. And with that, it  gets me thinking of spring and summer fashion. So when I was perusing Pinterest today I just couldn't take my eyes off these amazing all white outfits. Um and yes I am all about those flowy pants. Hmmm now where to find some?

Inspiration for our fireplace mantel

 Since we have had our house put back together I have yet to decorate the new mantel we put in. I love the mantel itself so much, I don't just want to just throw the first thing that I find above/on it. I have really just been at a loss for inspiration. So when I came across this photo I stopped in my tracks! The mantel in this photo below looks extremely like our new one. I am pretty much obsessed with this whole look so it will be serving as my inspiration. 

Let me know what you guys think!

What my bedroom looks like right now.....

Soooo we began the project of installing new hardwoods in the entire downstairs of our house. As a result our bedroom looks like it should be in a furniture store lol. Now try to imagine kids in this torn apart house, not to mention a newly crawling baby! Ah but I know it will be COMPLETELY worth it. I have been wanting these floors since the six years we have been living here. 

Can't wait to show you the finished look!

This, that and Mercy

I don't have to tell you that I love taking pictures of pretty things. So when I got these gorgeous and exceptionally yummy macaroons, I had to snap some quick pics, which somehow led to a full on jewelry shoot with my pretty new dishes from Ikea.

These bracelets below are my brand new Mercy bracelets that I just added to my shop. I love how you can pile them on and it's never too much!
