Our nautical style bathroom remodel is DIYed from floor to ceiling! We even turned our old nightstand into a sink vanity. It's full of ideas and DIY projects to save you tons on your next remodel: http://bit.ly/1qDJa6o #hometalktuesday   #bathroomremodel   #nautical

Love this spring time porch!
 
I wanted to do something colorful for my spring porch this year.  I certainly deserve a little color after putting up with all the stupid polar vortex stuff this winter.

DIY blogger who is trying to create a home without breaking the budget!
Introduction
Hi my name is Melissa and I have always loved to craft, decorate and accessorize! I love finding great deals and I believe you can spray paint anything. I am happily married to a wonderful man. I have a fat, orange cat named Rocky and a beautiful baby girl! I am a firm believer of the saying "if you can believe it you can achieve it". http://keepcalmanddecorate.blogspot.com/
Bragging rights
My dad wanted me to be a race car driver! I even sat in a race car that he was going to buy me, I didn't want to do it. He will never let me live that one down. I guess he was all for girl power! 😉 And one time on my birthday while in Chicago, Nate Berkus ran out in front of our car. I screamed with excitement and all my husband could say was, "Who is Nate Berkus?". I couldn't believe his question. He now knows who Nate is!
