Dahlia Stained Artwork on Dining Table

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Doing wood stain art is soooo addicting for me. I wouldn’t call it ‘instant’ gratification, but the transformation happens over the course of a couple hours... and it’s so fun to watch it unfold! If you missed my last Stained Art Table time-lapse video, click here! Shortly after posting that video, I was already having the itch to stain again, and Nick and I fell upon this dining table at a yard sale for $10 buckaroos! I know it appears to be raw wood, but it’s actually a pale … [Read More...]

Husbands and Hobbies

Top of the mornin’! How was your weekend?! The girls and I had so much fun making Nick feel special and loved this Father’s Day weekend. He loves that the girls share an interest in his model airplane hobby, and took ALL 3 GIRLS to the local air field. When I was a kid, they made bouncy seats for babies that had little canopies for shade... but I can’t find them anywhere these days! I always bring an umbrella outside with me to keep the sun off Cypress... and then I found this … [Read More...]

Rainbow Tie-Dye Layer Cake

How to make a rainbow tye-die double layer cake {Sawdust and Embryos}

A few weeks ago, I posted a picture of Nick’s Birthday cake to Instagram. The girls are old enough to want to get involved in things like birthdays, so when they proclaimed that they wanted to make their daddy a rainbow cake, I was happy to oblige. And he was just grateful to have cake. Since posting that pic, several of you have begged me to post a tutorial. And since I don’t think to photograph every little thing ‘just in case’, I begrudgingly HAD to make another rainbow cake to document … [Read More...]

Being Present in my own Life

048.jpg

People are always telling me they can’t believe how productive I am, and all that I get done with 3 kids (3 and under). Well I could write a whole post about not watching TV, and enjoying my projects, etc. Blah blah blah...But the truth is, I find myself looking at my phone A LOT. I’ve been feeling really convicted about this lately... especially when my girls are around wishing I was paying attention to THEM instead of whatever I’m looking at on Facebook or Pinterest. For the most part, … [Read More...]

How to Stencil your Backsplash

Painted-backsplash-Sawdust-and-Embryos.jpg

Well it’s been a week, and I STILL LOVE my chartreuse kitchen cabinets! It was fun to watch the wide array of comments flow in. I think it’s fair to say... you either loved it or ya hated it. And that’s ok! A lot of my design choices are off the wall... it’s just my style. And you still read my blog, sooooo... I love to mix different design genre’s to create my own personal style. If having white walls, white cabinets, and white counters are what it takes to have a magazine-worthy … [Read More...]

Extending Kitchen Cabinets up to the Ceiling

Extend cabinets up to the ceiling and paint a fun color! {Sawdust and Embryos}

Oh man... I’m SO excited to write this post right now! Let’s talk about my kitchen! Recall for a moment what our kitchen looked like just a couple weeks ago. We loved that dark teal with the glossy swirls for a handful of years, but it was just time for a change. I laid out some more details about why we painted the walls white in this post, and it really brightened up the room sooooo much. To be honest, when I painted the walls white, I wasn’t sure what the *#^& I was … [Read More...]

Cutout Silhouette Plaques out of Wood!

Simple-instructions-to-make-a-silhouette-plaque-of-your-kids-profiles-out-of-wood-Sawdust-and-Em.jpg

If you’ve been around our little blog for a few moons, you might remember that we made wall plaques with the girls’ silhouettes when they were babes. We used slabs of oak and vinyl as a stencil to paint over. (Full Tutorial HERE) I’m in the middle of making one for Cypress, and let’s just say her profile looks a LOT different with all that hair. How did we have bald babies (for the first two years of their life) and then have a little sis pop out with this mop of … [Read More...]

Woodshop Organization Spray Paint Rack

FREE-building-plans-for-DIY-Spray-Paint-Rack-Sawdust-and-Embryos.jpg

When we bought this house, we mutually agreed that the garage was Nick’s domain, and the house was mine... at least with regards to what goes where. But as the years have passed, we’ve both infiltrated each other’s domain. To Nick’s surprise, he found that he actually did have an opinion about design elements in our home. And to MY surprise, I found that I can build shit. Like with my own two hands. And the garage is my happy place. It’s been fun, actually, watching the dynamic of our … [Read More...]
