round up {chalkboard walls}

I have a thing for chalkboard walls. Perhaps they make me feel nostalgic. I used to play school as a kid like it was my job. And who didn’t love to write on the chalkboard in grade school. Chalkboards in the home are fun and functional, if you ask me. They’re easy to make. They’re [continue…]

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…]

tgif {roundup and favorite things}

Is it just me, or did this week go by really quickly? It was a big week for RICE, from being featured on Remodelista, to having 3 projects on the front page of craftgawker, and seeing a steady rise in readership. It’s quite exciting. I thoroughly enjoy sharing ideas, projects and the likes. My love [continue…]

round up {painted dining room chairs}

I’m back with another round up for you! More inspiration. More ideas. What are your thoughts on painted dining room chairs? I recently painted our chairs… twice. First in a blue gray. I liked the color, but not on the chairs. So I used leftover Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (which is much more durable anyway) [continue…]

round up {twinkle lights}

This week has been so exciting for me. On Monday morning, Remodelista featured one of my photographs. On Monday night, I got an email that craftgawker accepted one of my submissions. And last night, I got another email that they accepted another submission. It’s quite exciting and I’m very grateful! Crafting and creating is such fun [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…]

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…]

rambling about craig.

Well, his list that is. You know. Craig’s List. Oh brother. Someone take the laptop away from me! I was browsing Craig’s List earlier. Not because I’m looking for anything. But because I think it’s fun. Maybe I need to find a better hobby. But until then, I thought I’d share some of my findings [continue…]
