Now that Elsie is getting older, we no longer need a baby monitor, but I would like to still be able to check on her at night, so we got a @bluebyadt camera for her room #ad Isn't the shelf I made for it to sit on the cutest? It would also make an awesome plant shelf for those who can keep them alive! We chose this security system because not only can I keep an eye on Elsie, but I can monitor other areas of my home as well. Since it is not hardwired, I can easily move it around in my home so I can check in on things while we are away. The great thing about @bluebyADT is that it is a completely DIY system so you won't need any technicians coming to install it. I set up my camera in less than 5 minutes! There is no monthly fee and I am able to view the cameras from anywhere using @bluebyAdt's free app. It's comforting to know that I have a reliable home security system in place to give me peace of mind. #diyhomesecurity #bluebyadt #macrameshelf #macrameplanter #hangingplanter #girlroomdecor #girlroominspo

I built this from scratch! And I don’t think I will ever do it again! This dresser was a lot of work but thanks to my Dewalt #AtomicPowerTools circular saw, that I got from @zoro_usa the job was much easier #ad This cordless circular saw is small but mighty! It is 20V and brushless and has so much power. Cutting down my full sheets of plywood has never been easier! And @zoro_usa has so many products to choose from, even hard to find items, free shipping over $50, great customer service and hassle free returns. You can grab my saw at https://bit.ly/33oHnNz (link is also in my bio!) What’s the most challenging DIY you have done?

The most important part of my mudroom refresh is definitely my @firstalert smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm #ad My home is only five years old so it isn’t time to replace any alarms yet but adding this extra one is giving me peace of mind that my family will be safe in case of a fire or carbon monoxide leak. Did you know that all smoke and CO alarms should be replaced at least every ten years? This is your friendly reminder to replace the batteries and check the dates on the back of your alarms. If the date is before May 2011, it’s time to get a new one! Upgrade with @firstalert 10-Year Sealed Battery Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm so you won’t need to replace the batteries for the life of the alarm! No more trying to remember to replace the batteries every six months or any middle of the night chirping! Why does this always happen in the middle of the night? I also took this opportunity to discuss and practice the escape routes and meeting location with my kids in case of an alarm! What is most important to me is protecting my family and I am sure it is to you as well, so make sure your alarms are up to date and working properly! #TimeToReplace #FirstAlert

The loft room is really coming together and on today’s agenda was hanging up this cute sconce light and adding bedding! If you have a loft bed or bunk bed there is no other choice than @beddys #gifted Beddy’s is one piece that fits over the mattress like a fitted sheet and then the top zips up so it is super easy to make your bed even if it is high off the ground! They are also great for regular beds. My kids all have Beddy’s and love how comfy and cozy they are and I love how easy it is for them to make their own beds. Do you or your kids have trouble making your bed daily?? I know I do! They are currently having a Memorial Day sale ending 5/31 BOGO 50% with code SUNNYDAY or if you don’t need two you can use my code MAKINGIT for 15% off (Link in Bio!). #loftbed #zipyourbed #girlroominspo #girlroomdecor #goldsconces #beddysbeds #loftbedroom #bunkbeds #DIYtogether #hgtvhandmade #hgtvhandmadehome #femalediycollective #checkoutmydiy #mycrumbshome #kidsbedroom #girlsbedroom #girlsroominspo #girlsroomideas #makingmyhaven #homesohard #loftbedroom #pucklights #boholighting #girlsroom #bohogirlsroom #bohobedroom #kidsroomdesign #makingitwithabby

It’s week 7 of the @oneroomchallenge by @betterhomesandgardens and I still have so much to do!! I finished another wall of my white board and batten, this @ikeausa dresser flip, and hung some pendants. Still left to do is a new floating shelf for under my tv, finish the board and batten on the other walls, shiplap ceiling, beams, some DIY art and maybe a bench. Do you think I can finish by next Sunday?? I’d say it’s pretty questionable at this point! Also, check out the cute black and brass planters by @plant_stacks Link is in my bio! #oneroomchallenge #bhgorc #ikeahack #rasthack #ikeafurniture #ikeanightstand #ikeahacks #ikeadiy #girlswithpowertools #womenwhobuild #diyer #doityou #diys #diyvideos #diyproject #diyhome #diyhomedecor #diydecor #diycrafts #oneroomchallenge #DIYtogether #hgtvhandmade #hgtvhandmadehome #femalediycollective #checkoutmydiy #mycrumbshome #makingmyhaven #homesohard #masterbedroommakeover #makingitwithabby #bedroominspo

How great do these @dapperanddarlingshop silhouettes of my littles look on my new white board and batten wall?? I could not love them more. Every detail of their sweet faces were captured and I’m so grateful that I will always have these to remember when they were small ❤️❤️. Not only does @dapperanddarlingshop make these gorgeous silhouette illustrations (with different wreath and color options) but they also make wooden silhouettes and gorgeous jewelry charms. I will definitely be hinting to my husband for a necklace with a charm for each of my kids! I am about 1/4th of the way done with painting for the #oneroomchallenge and I am so ready to be done!!

Everyone is loving our new @nectarsleep mattress, including the cat! It is a memory foam mattress that has the perfect amount of firmness and breath ability that keeps us cool all night long! We are also loving the look of our new bed frame also from @nectarsleep. My oldest has already tried to claim it as her own! Right now they are offering $399 in accessories (2 cooling pillows, mattress protector, sheet set) with purchase of a mattress. Link is in my bio! How cute are these 4 chilling on my new bed!? #NewNectarWhoThis #NectarSleepPartner #ILoveMyNectar #sponsored

The loft room is DONE! How many DIYs are in this room!? It’s hard to say exactly depending on how you count but I think at least 10! I’m so proud of how it turned out and I think it is the most beautiful thing I have ever created and I did it without any plans! (SWIPE to see all the details!). There are things in this room I have never done before! But I figured it out and got it done! YOU CAN DO HARD THINGS!! What have you done that you are most proud of? And what is your favorite part of this room? Let me know in the comments!

It’s week 5(!!!) of the @betterhomesandgardens @oneroomchallenge and this is my first update 😬. Is anyone else a serial procrastinator?? In this case I have just been so busy finishing up my last room makeover that I haven’t had time for this one yet, but that changed this week! I got up my beautiful @wallpaperie Boho Tile wallpaper and put up my new bed! The photos do not do the wallpaper justice! I love how it is subtle but gives lots of character to the wall and brightens up the space so much! Swipe to see some closeups and my other cute photo bomber!! #bhgorc #oneroomchallenge #springoneroomchallenge #DIYtogether #hgtvhandmade #hgtvhandmadehome #femalediycollective #checkoutmydiy #bedroommakeover #masterbedroomideas #wallpaperaccentwall #mycrumbshome #catsofinstagram #masterbedroomdesign #masterbedroommakeover #masterbedroominspo #masterbedroomdecor #makingmyhaven #homesohard
