    Searching for the Perfect Sage Green? Try Gentle Olive, the Minwax 2022 Color of the Year!

    My go-to colors for my home are white, sage green and blush pink. They’re soft, clean, bright and airy. They’re organic, natural and calming. Therefore, when Minwax told me that their 2022 Color of the Year was going to be Gentle Olive, I’m pretty sure I said “AHHH! That’s amazing! That’s all over my home already!” It’s a gorgeous, nature-inspired sage green. Last year I created some wall decor and a console table in my living room using this color. I also created some modern bookends using this beautiful sage green color. As part of Minwax’s Color of the Year announcement, I created a giant piece of wall art featuring…

    Easy DIY Bedside Storage Solution for Children’s Room

    My young son used to fall out of bed – a lot! We often heard a loud noise and found him sleeping on the floor instead of in his bed. One of the primary reasons why this happened was because he slept with about 11 massive books! He literally did not have room to sleep. When we put him to sleep for the night, he read books in his bed until he was tired. When he got tired, he just set the books in his bed and fell asleep. Then all night long he rolled over and over the books, until he fell out of bed. What was my solution?…
