Wall initials

I am looking for a little wall inspiration for a boys room & I saw these large oversized wall initials on Pinterest. I'm thinking in a chalkboard/magnetized paint...what do you think?

Minecraft Party Dessert Table

The boys had a great time at Evan's birthday! I kept the dessert table really simple with Minecraft cookies, Creeper Corn & TNT sour cherry bombs!

Can you dig it?

Oh yes, we are having a Minecraft party this weekend for our youngest. I am laying out the "creeper" background for the dessert table on the floor before it goes up on the wall. And yes, this is how I'm spending my Friday night! :)

Pretzel Hugs & Kisses

You know I love chocolate covered pretzels. It's the perfect combination of salty & sweet! Now I knew I wanted to make some for my sweeties for V day but I didn't want to do the same old ones I always do. Then I remembered they have circle covered pretzels & we all know they have pretzel sticks-okay you know where I'm going...hugs & kisses pretzels.

The X's were super simple to make:

1. Take two pretzels, break one in half.
2. Dip whole pretzel stick.
3. Dip each half pretzel stick & attach to form X.
4. Cover with sprinkles.

Enjoy! Sweet & salty hugs & kisses to you all!

Countertop Trend

Have you seen the hot rolled steel countertops? In my dream craft room, I would love a huge island constructed with this material with vintage lockers baskets in all the cubbies for storage. Ahhh...a girl can dream right? (Photo via Jennifer Gilmer)

Industrial storage

I am loving all the industrial storage pieces from Restoration Hardware Kids! It's perfect for my boys-all of their roughness just only enhances the patina! Do you like the industrial trend?

Marquee letter lights

A popular wall decor trend are these marquee letter lights. I think they are a fun addition to kid spaces, kitchens, family & game rooms. What would you spell out in letter lights?

Nailed it!

I have a confession to make...i have a slight obsession with nail heads. I love how they accentuate the lines of a sofa, curve of an arm chair & detail of a headboard. I also like the way they can add design & pattern to a dresser. What's your opinion of nail heads?

Just picked up this Rawley Nesting Desk for a bedside table for a teenagers bedroom! I love the industrial design & multifunction of the desk as a bedside table-& for the price of $149, you can't beat it!
