Rustic 6 Bottle Wine Rack

This post is a project dedicated to Matthew!  He built this great 6 bottle rustic wine rack for our house. 

DIY Dresser to TV Stand

For the past 4-5 months Matthew and I have been searching every garage sale and ad listing to find the perfect dresser for a new TV stand.  I usually come up with the DIY projects and we tackle the project as husband and wife together.  However, this project was Matthew's idea and I am very excited to share it with you today on the blog! 

DIY Fall Wood Block Sign

This week on the blog is a DIY fall wood block sign that anyone can make!  It's probably one of the easiest DIY projects I have done and has a very minimal cost.  If you'd like me to make you the sign please let me know!  I'd be happy to put a little bit of fall into your house! :)

$10 DIY Fall Wreath

School started today for Matthew and I's Alma-Mater (GO PANTHERS!) and as school starts I always get into the fall mood.  The start of school means football games, cooler weather and the smell of some great tailgating food!  Although this week doesn't feel like the start of fall (90+ all week...ew!)  I made this fall wreath before our weekends started getting busy with football games.  

This wreath cost me a total of $8 and I will get a good 3 months use out of it!

Rustic Wood Sign

God has granted my grandpa with the gift of wood working.  He receives requests from people at a faster pace he can build items.  Let's just say, family is last on his list :)  

He continually has wood he isn't using and I am snatching it up to make wood signs! 

Romantic Rustic Wedding

This past weekend I had the opportunity to coordinate a wedding for a Bride in Ankeny.  When sitting down at a  consultant meeting with brides, I like to find what kind of theme they want for their wedding.  You can have elegant, romantic, vintage, rustic, bohemian, etc. or you can have a combination between all those.  After throwing out some of those words at our initial meeting we decided on a romantic rustic wedding theme.  Her husband loves to hunt, and Dana wanted a romantic wedding.

I hope you enjoy this romantic rustic wedding as much as I did planning it!

Happy 1st Anniversary to my husband!

This past weekend Matthew and I got to celebrate our anniversary on the Plaza in Kansas City.  It was a get away and the best thing about it was I got to shop, dine & enjoy the weather with my best friend.  Here's a recap of the best year I've ever had!
