Of all the DIY projects you've done, which was your favorite?

Oooo...I have lots of favorites!!! Hard to pick just one.

I love, love, love our spiral staircase! It was probably the most "intense" diy project we've done!

I'd have to say to date, my most favorite room is the guest room. It only took 2 days to put together, and I was able to incorporate things into that room that I already had.

I really enjoy making chalkboards, and it seems like the chalkboards made out of cabinet doors have been the biggest hit!

I also love Pallet Art with inspirational words on them...the pallet wall...

Oh, and the bench made out of a headboard and footboard...

What's your advice for moms who want to decorate their home on a budget?

I keep my eye out on furniture that people have out in their trash, that I can re-do and make it my own. For the smaller things, I shop at Goodwill and I love Target clearance! I also shop on my local beg, barter, and sell site through Facebook. ((It's kind of like a Craigslist))

I paint and distress A LOT of furniture...makes such a HUGE difference!!!

Where do you find inspiration for keeping your home stylish?

I love browsing Pinterest, magazines, hgtv.com, other blogs, etc.
