{ DIY Beadboard FAQS }

 Happy Monday, pals!! Sorry I'm a bit late getting Monday's post up...We're exhausted from the weekend diy & fun! Guys!!!! We finally installed the cottage beadboard in the formal living room upstairs! We've been planning this for months, but couldn't find the time. We finally pulled the trigger Friday & worked until 10pm Sunday to get it all finished! 

With that being said, I wanted to come on here & share some FAQS l about this diy beadboard... I hope my thoughts aren't jumbled in this post, forgive me I'm nearly sleeping while typing ha.


Let's start by saying that DIY is h a r d! It's time consuming, costly at times & there are always hiccups, but boy is it REWARDING!


• SUPPLIES •

.White nails

. Beadboard 10x4 slabs

. Trim

. White paint

. Trim caulk 

* we didn't use any glue. It's unnecessary & can damage your walls if it needs to be removed in the future! 

•HOW TO•

Measure the wall or walls you plan on boarding! Take the total feet & divide that by 4ft { size of beadboard}. Measure the height of your ceilings & have the boards cut. We opted to cut ours ourselves but Home Depot could too. We nailed them up lining the seems together & added the trim after the vents & light switches were cut. Remember " measure twice, cut once". 

After the beadboard is all up, add trim, wipe down the beadboard & paint! We opted not to paint yet but you definitely can. 


The beadboard just leaning against the wall for a first glance!


This is the board with half finished trim but all nailed down!!


That's the mini update! I'll be back with a final look after tweaks, paint & styling!! Have you ever done beadboard in your home?

HAPPY Friday!

{ Rustic Halloween Mantel }

 Ugh, I'm so sorry about the lack of post these last few days! My site had a glitch & I'm still working in restoring the "DIY Beadboard Post". Today though I'm here to share a RUSTIC HALLOWEEN MANTEL  with you all! I finally got the living room somewhat cleaned up & of course I had to style a space..That being the fireplace mantel! Don't get me wrong the rest of the house is still a mess..No sofa, missing trim & well unstyled ha. Anyways come see this spooky rustic mantel decorated....


This moody rustic historical mantel was inspired by these delicious scented mini which brooms from HomeDepot.com  ! I picked them up randomly while getting a gallon of white paint quickly Saturday night! $1.50 each & they're scented cinnamon & apple! They're great quality + rustic vintage looking!


That candles are definitely the focal point. Just some cream & white vanilla lit candles on a wood tray..Ambiance, smell & they add a touch of spooky mystery!




The sign is from Target & I love the simplicity & plain black + white! The mini brooms stacked add texture & vintage vibe. The cotton stems add that touch of "foliage " & soften the minimalist mantel up..



HAPPY Thursday!
