diy {pallet headboard}

And just in time for the weekend.. the long awaited pallet headboard! I’m excited to (finally) share this project! It’s the biggest project I’ve shared to date. Turning pallets into furniture or decor is nothing new, this I know. Last January, my wish of having a headboard became a reality, using, you guessed it, a [continue…]

diy {alphabet fridge}

When you have a preschooler, your entire life is a learning experience. Your home is a classroom whether you intend to homeschool or not! I’ve been trying to find and incorporate some intentional learning into our routine. Gabriel is an active and energetic three year old boy, so I’m trying to find hands on learning, [continue…]

diy {rock picture clip}

And just like that, the weekend is over and it’s Monday. This Monday has been particularly exciting. RICE Designs is featured on the website Remodelista! A couple weeks ago, I got an email from the editor in London, asking if she could use one of my images in a post. She was so kind and [continue…]

diy: paper plate holders

Isn’t it fun to have friends over dinner? I think so. What’s not always fun is cleaning up afterwards, when the food has started to fuse to every dish you own. It’s usually then that I wish I’d used paper plates. I know they’re not the best option economically and environmentally, but sometimes it’s just [continue…]

diy: stamped paper

It may be odd to write about wrapping paper in January, but surely December isn’t the only time gifts are given. Maybe there’s an upcoming birthday, or a new baby, or any other kind of celebration (or no celebration at all… sometimes ‘just because’ is the best reason)! If there’s a gift that needs wrapping, [continue…]

diy {rock place cards}

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m here today to share a quick diy project to add some charm to your Thanksgiving table. My main contribution to our family’s Thanksgiving is to decorate the table. It’s a self-appointed job that began last year (or maybe it was the year before) and is something I have fun with. For the [continue…]

diy: book page wallpaper

Wow. Talk about some serious neglect to the blog. To end this streak of silence, I have a project I’m pretty excited to share with you! We have a big wall at the top of the stair landing that’s been calling to me every time I walk by. You see the wall as soon as [continue…]

diy {road trip with a kid}

I’m here! I’m alive! Sorry for the silence! We’re getting ready for vacation (yay!) and blogging has been pushed to the back burner. I want to share some things I’ve done to get ready for our road trip. Gabe does quite well in the car, but even I can get antsy siting for consecutive hours. [continue…]
