DIY scrap wood frame, Homedit article


How did Christmas go?! Did you get what you were wishing for? Did your kids? I would love to hear all about it! I am maxing and relaxing this week with my three little ones at home. I am sure you can guess there is not too much maxin or relaxing. But we do get to sleep in a little more, so yay! Last week was a whirlwind of preparation. I realized I never shared with you guys what I made out of some scrap wood. I shared the tutorial and project over at Homedit.  I made these DIY scrap wood frames and am completely in love with them!


I actually reused these same DIY wood scrap frames for some kitchen Christmas decor. I had so much to share with you all I never got to fully explain the tutorial to these, it is pretty self explanatory and I might roll out the very complicated way I made the paper Christmas trees.

I am sure I will be reusing these frames all over my house through out the year. I made them super quick and last minute. However it is love at rustic, dark walnut stain. Like usual!

That is all I have to share today, really simple. I do not think me or anyone else can handle more than this. I feel like I am in the lull before the next round of storms come. That being New years eve and then the new year itself. After that I have to get my decorating booty into gear because Nora will be turning 8 at the end of January! It never ends my friends, which I am so lucky to have this full life. Sometimes I need to slow down and catch my breath though.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have some fun plans for New years eve! I will be sharing my round up post sharing some of my favorites from this past year. Be sure to look out for that this week! Also, remember to go over to Homedit here to see the way I made these DIY scrap wood frames.  How was your Christmas? Have you recovered?
