March In Review

Another month gone, and what a busy month it was!

Just in case you missed something, here’s March in review.


I started the month by ending my mini series showing how simple it is to add meaning to your home.
How To Add Meaning To Your Home | The Wood Grain Cottage

Then Anthony and I accomplished a project that had been on the “to-do” list since we moved in: Building a surround for our washer & dryer.  It may or may not have tested our love for DIY.

After that I showed you my second project for our $30 Thursday series: DIY Garden Globes.

We added a cushion to the breakfast nook bench:

I decided to spread a little bit more chalkboard love throughout our home and painted the pantry door:

I was beyond ready for spring, so the kitchen shelves got a much needed refresh:

I can’t wait to make some progress on my new shelving plan for the dining room:

One of my favorite projects was definitely my herringbone side table makeover:

I also shared a sneak peek of the new pillow covers I made for the breakfast nook bench:

And then I shared an easy peasy way to trace onto burlap:

In addition to our DIY projects, we’ve been really busy farming- and doing it at night to boot:

Our entryway was in desperate need of a few changes and I’m thrilled to have them done:

What. A. Busy. Month.! But then again, every month is busy. Especially when you have DIY fever.


What was your favorite project?

P.S. The next $30 Thursday is this week! Exciting!
