5-Ways-Fake-Built-Ins

A little over two years ago, I posted 5 Ways to Fake Built In Shelving.  Evidently, there are a lot of people out there who are looking for ways to get the look of custom built-ins without the expense of hiring a carpenter.  And in the two years since I hit the publish button on that post, I’ve seen even more great examples of how people are using inexpensive shelving units to make gorgeous faux built ins.  So here’s the sequel, folks:  5 MORE Ways to Fake Built In Shelving.

DIY Decorative Wooden Arrows from Scrap Wood

Hey there!  It’s Carmel from Our Fifth House, and I’m back today to share a super simple and easy little DIY project.  These decorative, wooden arrows are fun to make and add the perfect amount of whimsy to a gallery wall.  I made them for my daughter’s room, but I think they’d be great in any space!  They’re so quick to whip up you could even create a whole wall of nothing but these fun arrows, which as side note would also be a great way to use up any leftover scrap wood you might have lying around your garage.

Creative Way to Announce Pregnancy

No I am not pregnant! However, I love how creative women have gotten with announcing pregnancies, revealing the gender of their babies, decorating for baby showers and even nursery decor.  I think there is nothing more magical and amazing then bringing a child into this world. And getting creative and having fun with the process is part of the fun. While 2 is my limit of kiddos being birthed by this woman, I am now enjoying that whole process with my cousins.  My side of the family had 4 new babies last year and at least 2 more this year.  So we have lots of little ones to enjoy.

If you follow me on Instagram you already have seen some pictures of my Florida adventure. Now we are not usually a big traveling Spring Break family.  If we do we usually go and visit family.  But this year I was talking to a girlfriend of mine (Erin) and her husband had to work and mine was out of the country so on a whim we decided to brave a road trip with 4 kids and drive down to St. Petersburg, Florida.
