Laundry Room Tour

Laundry Room Tour

I realized my home tour page was a little out of date when I moved the blog over from blogger to wordpress.  I’m going to try to update it a little as I go. Today I wanted to share the Laundry Room.  I struggle to keep this room tidy as it’s the “catch-all” when I’m picking up the house in a hurry. Building this Mudroom Wall is also the most difficult DIY project I’ve taken on to date.  Photographing it is…

First Birthday Centerpieces using Recycled Formula Cans

First Birthday Centerpieces using Recycled Formula Cans

I’m a creator at heart.  That’s a big part of the reason I write this blog.  I like to take old things and make something fantastic or useful or pretty out of them.  The downside of that is when I have something I think I will be able to use in the future, I have a hard time getting rid of it.  But there are only so many hours in a day and only so many projects I can take on.  Let’s…

DIY Medallion Makeover

DIY Medallion Makeover

I’m so excited to share a little DIY makeover that I did a few months ago! Last summer I picked up two of these faux medallions at Hobby Lobby for 90% off!  I’m guessing they were 90% off because of the horrible color.  I can’t imagine “mustard” working its way into any of the rooms of my home.  But I liked the design (and I loved the price)! Here’s a look at the “before” version straight from the store. ….

We moved!

We moved!

Welcome to the Bay Bush at its new home! I’ve been thinking about making a move over to wordpress and my own self hosted site for a while but finally got the ball rolling on it last weekend. I was a little intimidated about making the switch since I’m not that tech savy and had taught myself how to use blogger until was comfortable with it.  I went with Site Ground for hosting and they did an awesome job migrating…

Easy Birthday Banner

Easy Birthday Banner

Have I mentioned to you guys before that my oldest and youngest daughters’ birthdays are only one day apart?  So I’m trying to plan a First Birthday party for the baby and another party for my oldest and trying to make sure neither is overshadowed by the other.  And it tax season… So I’m not above taking a short cut or two…that’s where this super easy banner comes in! I was perusing the aisles of Target when I noticed this blank banner…

Krome

Krome

Have you guys tried Krome?  It’s an app that edits photographs for you. I’d seen mixed reviews of examples on Facebook but I decided to give it a try with pictures of the girls. Here is the original I used.  I left instructions for them to make the basket look like it was floating in the sky, color correct, center the baby/basket in the photo and to add more balloons. (One of ours made its exit into the real sky…

Quick, Cheap and Easy {My favorite DIYs}

Quick, Cheap and Easy {My favorite DIYs}

Someone asked me how I have time to do all these projects.  Here’s my confession… If it’s not quick and easy, I usually never finish it.  So for all the finished projects and tutorials on the blog there is a graveyard of half finished projects that I never finished because they took too long and I lost interest.  (I have the attention span of a 4 year old.) So I decided to compile a list of my favorite DIY projects…

Pretty Little Planner

Pretty Little Planner

I’m trying to get my life organized before school starts back.  I needed a new planner and loved the colors of this one I found at Target for $5.99.  It had a clear plastic cover which should be more durable than my May Book.   I really loved my May Book that I used last year but after 5 months of hard time in my purse, it started to look a little frayed.  No offense to May Books because I really…

Ditching the DVD Cases

Ditching the DVD Cases

You already know we have a hair bow problem… Well, this is my confession that we also have a DVD problem.  Two entire cabinets in my entertainment center were filled with DVDs. Why so many DVDs?  I feel the need to defend myself a little here.  We don’t have satellite or cable.  So if there is a cartoon or series that the girls like, they usually end up with the episodes on DVD.  The bad part was Miss Avery would drag all the…

Sharpie Mug {Porch Sittin’ Coffee Drinkin’}

Sharpie Mug {Porch Sittin’ Coffee Drinkin’}

I’ve been wanting to try on one of these DIY Mugs decorated with a Sharpie forever.  They are all over Pinterest.  I finally found a plain white mug at the Dollar Tree and gave it a whirl! If you make one you might want to sketch out what you are going to put up there on paper.  I didn’t feel like doing all that and since I only had $1 invested in the mug I didn’t feel a lot of…
