I needed something both pretty and practical to put all of my office supplies into. I found a dining hutch on craigslist for $50 and planned to remove the doors, paint it and use it as an office bookcase. Along the way I thought of other ways to modify it and make it even […]
I picked up this cute little buffet through a Facebook ad a couple of years ago. I needed something in the dining room and wanted a buffet with intricate legs and farmhouse character. It was a distressed white finish when I bought it, and I liked it that way, but I needed a change so […]
We’ve spent the last couple of years making major changes to our house, and I love how far we’ve come. Although we’ve done easy diy projects we’ve also done some massive ones. We’ve put in a new master bathroom , updated our other two bathrooms, completely gutted our kitchen (pics coming soon), repainted the entire […]
While we were updating our laundry room and back hall, we painted all of the trim and doors white. I thought white paint would be a good fix for our ugly, beige flat door that leads to our garage. But all it did was make it an ugly, boring WHITE flat door. #FAIL We didn’t […]
In the last few days I’ve seen friends posting pics of their front porches enjoying spring weather. Those friends live way further south than I do. It’s 28 degrees here so it’s not porch time yet. Even when its cold, it’s still fun to look at porches and think about how to decorate when spring […]
We’re creating a Rustic Farmhouse Style Bathroom Design with budget decor. The flooring, vanity, fixtures, vanity top, mirror and bathtub in our guest bathroom are all being updated. After four years in our house, we are finally tackling the super ugly guest bathroom! This was our boys’ bathroom while they were home from college and now […]
Confession time. I have never achieved my farmhouse style porch goals or even come close! Houses with gorgeous farmhouse style porches have always been my favorite. I look at them and then stick a planter on my stoop and never do anything else. Then I forget to water the plant and it dies. Doesn’t that […]
We just got back from a glorious sunny vacation to the beach and it’s absolutely frigid outside. It’s supposed to snow this weekend which isn’t that unusual here, but its still sad for sun lovers like me. It’s a good time to catch up on my binge-watching and Christmas decor planning.
My name is Michelle from Our Crafty Mom, a DIY/Home Decor and Craft Blog. I am happy to be back guest posting at Centsible Chateau today! As Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away, I thought it would be fun to show you how to make a classic Thanksgiving Cornucopia.

My first guest is Michelle from Our Crafty Mom. All of Michelle’s designs are gorgeous and this DIY Rustic Fall […]
Pillows are one of the simplest ways to decorate your home and change it up. You can easily switch out pillows or pillow covers for holidays or seasons and you can find them almost anywhere in any price range. Homegoods, Marshalls, Christmas Tree Shops and Amazon all have options. But, when it comes to adorable […]

Nicole is a designer and her eye for detail is impressive. Her website is full of incredible decorating ideas and she also offers one-on-one eDesign consultations. Today she’s sharing […]
I know, I know. You’re googling and looking all over Pinterest because you want reviews on the White Ikea Ektorp couch and chair so you can prove to your doubting family that it will be fine to buy one. Then you can buy your gorgeous White Ikea Couch and live in farmhouse heaven until eternity, […]
Do you have a space in your home that you don’t decorate even though its ugly, because nobody sees it? That was my laundry room. I wanted to give it a farmhouse laundry room makeover but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money updating it. I had so many other projects to do, […]
After installing this shelf during our laundry room makeover, a friend pointed out that it looks just like a restoration hardware wall shelf that costs hundreds of dollars . Of course I was thrilled. There’s nothing better than knowing I can help people save a ton of money. Our shelf was really cheap to make, and […]
You may have noticed that I’ve become obsessed with lemons lately. I just love using the fruit in home decorating and I have been finding so much farmhouse lemon decor that I put it in a blog for you here. So I was so excited when Michelle from OurCraftyMom.com decided to make a lemon garland for […]
Decorating your whole home can be overwhelming and incredibly expensive. If you shopped for every room of your house at a normal retail store it would literally cost you thousands of dollars. We are often asked where we find all of our bargains. So for those of you who love budget-friendly decor, I’m sharing some […]
I’m so in love with zesty farmhouse lemon decor (zesty pun intended). I’m not sure when my lemon obsession started. It could have been because I binge watched the cutest show, called Hart of Dixie, where a girl named Lemon was the character everyone loves to hate. Maybe it started when I tried the Meyer […]
If you’re like me, picking a paint color is a nightmare. I love the Pottery Barn paint colors used in their catalog, but they are found at the Sherwin Williams store for $50 a gallon. Way too much for me. The Magnolia Home Paint at Target is $47 a gallon! When I discovered how people […]

I am happy to be back guest posting at Centsible Chateau for another $25 and under craft project. Today I will show you How To Make Gorgeous Moss Balls From Dollar Store Finds! These can be used in so many different ways and can be very pricey. In fact, one of the reasons I wanted […]
Last month the last episode of Fixer Upper on HGTV aired, leaving us all without our weekly dose of Chip and Joanna Gaines. While it’s been a tough few weeks of mourning, the good news is that there won’t be a shortage of reruns anytime soon. Since there are about a million replays a week […]
Hello! Michelle back from Our Crafty Mom. Today, I’ll show you how to make a Farmhouse Style Tiered Tray for under $25! The key to keeping the cost down is to use cake pans either from a thrift store or a craft store with a coupon. I lucked out while shopping at Michael’s and saw […]
Our laundry room is moving along nicely but I’ve added another quick project! When we removed the cabinet doors I realized I really wanted concealed hinges installed before we put them back up. The husband just loves making me happy (or is it that he loves playing with new tools?)so he installed them for me. At […]
We are giving our laundry room a makeover! Most of the makeover is painting, but we also did this really inexpensive modification to our cabinets that has taken them to a whole new level(get it?) By simply using some wood and molding to bring the cabinets to the ceiling, we changed the look of the […]
This week we had two days that felt like spring in the middle of February! It was almost 70 degrees and in western New York that’s pretty much a miracle. Once the warm weather appears, even for a day, I’m immediately in spring mode. It’s kind of hard to do major projects here in the winter […]
Hello! Michelle here from Our Crafty Mom. Today, I’ll show you how to make a succulent terrarium using faux succulents and a beautiful farmhouse style lantern. The best part is you can make it for under $25! I was inspired by the new Pier One catalog and the gorgeous succulent terrarium on the cover using […]

Last week we shared my elegant closet makeover with you. The closet was pretty useless but now it’s both pretty and organized. One of the most dramatic […]
