Winter Wreath Round Up

Need to add some sparkle speedy quick?! Wreaths are a great way to spread cheer before anyone steps a foot through the door. Here are a few of my favorites you can whip up yourself for the holiday season.  

Poms away! With pom pom makers in a range of sizes, it's a fail-proof and festive project you can complete if you have a little bit of extra time for wrapping and trimming perfect poufs. Simply tie, wire or hot glue pom poms onto a basic wreath frame -- or if you're pinched for time purchase this one from Anthropologie


She's a Brick House : Lindsey Crafter's Biggest DIY Project Ever!

It's finally happened. Last month I FINALLY got my hands on an amazing property--complete with a charming 40's era house, separate studio/shop with a fireplace and wood floors, and several acres for gardens and goats. I've been experiencing idea-overwhelm over the past few months while waiting to move forward, but I can't wait to walk you through this house week by week and not only share my progress--but its unique history in my hometown.


Live and Let Live : 15+ faux plants that fooled me.

For years I turned up my nose at plastic plants. Dust? Shiny leaves? YUCK. Luckily, the standard ficus + basket combo of office lobby nightmares are rarely in production and I'm seeing more and more convincing cacti and fiddle leaf figs. Here's a list of my favorite finds (may include affiliate links) that you can add to your home whether you're lacking in decent southern exposure or a green thumb.

Interior Color Trends : How to Incorporate Lilac Into Your Home.

Years ago I lived in a three family home in a 2nd floor apartment. It was in a word "dated" with a faux sky light and orange wood floors, but it had some redeeming qualities like gorgeous wood pocket doors and a FANTASTIC lilac tub. Little did I know, but lilac would quickly replace blush and millennial pink on the home trends board. What's been most interesting is after working with this shade in a few spaces I'm recognizing it as an extremely versatile color that can create a lot of different moods - from quaint country cottage to modern glam. Check out these inspirational spaces below and give purple a second chance!


Painted Dresser Makeover: Tips and Tricks for Painting Thrifted Furniture

luxe purple dresser with tassel and brass pulls

The saga continues! After a successful run of painting this ikea dresser a few years ago I decided not to press my luck and hadn't flipped a piece of furniture since. HOWEVER, when I got my hand on this free dresser with excellent drawers I was met with the opportunity to challenge myself to use an impossible color choice *gulp* purple. So yeah, violet is the color of the year--but every year we always bend the official color to more tolerable hues. In this case I think I can get away with a plum, wine or eggplant shade while still falling within the challenge boundaries. I picked a Sherwin Williams shade, Mature Grape , in a high-gloss door/trim paint. Here are some of my tips for painting furniture below!


Boho Cowgirl Bedroom Refresh for under $300!

Boho Cowgirl Bedroom Refresh for under $300!

This month has been nothing short of a RODEO of new projects, side hustles and adventures out west--but I was lucky to squeeze in a quick project for my sweet (and lil') friend Lola. Lola is a bona-fide cowgirl, but additionally creates amazing abstract acrylic pieces on canvas. She needed a "grown up" studio space with a desk and a refreshed look in her bedroom. I married rustic textures with bright patterns and bohemian motifs to create a simply styled space she can create and rest in! Check out the full flip below! P.S. We did it all for under $300.

A $30 Target Hack That Transformed my Closet

Transform and organize your closet on a budget with this $30 Target Hack by Lindsey Crafter

Closet makeovers are quickly becoming one of my favorite things to do for clients--mainly because I think it has an under-appreciated impact on everyone's day and they immediately see a positive change. If you start your day struggling to find things in your closet and you end your work day by tripping over shoes (and can't to shut the door) that's TWO times it's robbed you of time and maybe even joy. Here's what I've discovered after a couple of makeovers of my own.

The results are FANTASTIC! Scroll down for the detailed steps.
