Floorté Vinyl Plank Flooring from Shaw

More progress on the enclosed porch turned room makeover! When I visited Shaw Floors headquarters last summer, I had the opportunity to see all of their amazing high quality flooring products from awesome waterproof carpet to beautiful hardwoods to unbelievable waterproof planks. So much thought and innovation goes into the design behind the scenes!

The many features of a product called Floorté caught my eye. 

#shawstyleboard @diyshowoff

Floorté, enhanced luxury vinyl plank floor by Shaw is a luxury line locking durable, waterproof flooring option and I am in LOVE!

First, remember the ugly before picture from when we removed exterior siding and turned an exterior-interior window into a doorway…

to the after drywall/trim/paint and light fixture…it’s beginning to look like a different room altogether, right? That’s the plan! 

room makeover in progress @diyshowoff @shawstyleboard room makeover in progress @diyshowoff @shawstyleboard

to some floor prep work…

room makeover in progress @diyshowoff @shawstyleboard

to the installation of the Floorté. I chose the design “Antico” from the Classico collection. It’s a beautiful distressed-inspired look with gray/brown wood tones. I think it resembles weathered wood.

Did you catch the durability demonstration video on Instagram? 😉 

Our installer, Mike, subcontractor from A&S, knocked out this installation in half a day!

Next step is for us to install shoe molding and to complete decorating but I couldn’t resist putting up the curtains. I just need to make a few decisions on this room’s purpose then tweak the fine details so more on the final reveal coming soon, but in the meantime – isn’t she lovely?!

That DIY Party

Well, a whole week got away from me but it’s That DIY Party again! Show off your creativity and hard work by linking up in the blog linky party below and/or browse the links and pin to your heart’s content for inspiration for future DIY. 

That DIY Party @diyshowoff.com

Special request: In the past five years your prayers when my mom, younger sister, paternal aunt were all diagnosed with breast cancer (and youngest sister with a double mastectomy – but benign scare) have been so powerful. They’re all survivors and doing well! xo It’s been a huge part in opening my eyes towards making the changes for a healthier lifestyle. If you keep putting off creating a chemical free home, please move it up the priority list, even if it’s just a baby step! We had NO family history of cancer but there’s been this cancer epidemic attacking my family! It is evident that our environment and what we consume is a big contributing factor and I don’t want anyone else to experience this! I’m asking for your prayers once again. My aunt’s daughter, my first cousin, has now been diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer (another mother/daughter in my close family) and we’d really appreciate your prayers. Thanks so much, friends! 

DIYShowOff weekly recap: While I didn’t publish a blog post this past week, I do have them started and saved as drafts so watch this week for a flooring project with a sneak peak of a room reveal in progress.

That DIY Party 2017

Happy New Year, you guys! It’s That DIY Party time, the first one of 2017! I anticipate a busy year filled with lots of DIY home improvement and decorating for me personally since last year was quite ‘light’ on the home improvement with a heavier focus on crafts. I loved that I enjoyed more family time with my sweet grandson in 2016. It’s been a challenge finding balance but I think I’m seeing a shift in what feels like a more natural routine. How about you? What do you hope to accomplish in 2017?

That DIY Party link party at diyshowoff.com  

DIYShowOff weekly recap: Operation Pack Up Christmas is complete. It’s unusual for me to have it all put away before the new year but I just could not wait to de-clutter this time around for some reason. Maybe because we have a room makeover in progress. Speaking of which, watch for the reveal. Coming soon!

(see my adorable littler helper on Instagram)

DIYShowOff 2016 Review

Looking back at 2106, it was a year with more crafts than home improvement which means that we’re going to get crazy with home projects in 2017. We work as time and money allow and it seems to work out that way; a more productive year every other year. So gearing up for a super productive 2017 and looking back at a more relaxed 2016. Here is a quick 2016 recap:

2017 will see us back on track to transforming this old fixer upper into our dream home. On the to do list:

  • finishing up the home office – coming January 2017
  • a family room turned playroom
  • guest room refresh (bye bye baby crib!)
  • basement makeover (man cave)
  • livingroom refresh (old furniture to the man cave, helloooooo new living room furniture!)
  • upstairs bedroom makeovers – lots of donating, lots of paint! 
  • bathrooms? I HOPE SO! We have 2 in need of makeovers and updating but since they function, last priority. Darn!
  • craft room spring cleaning – it’s currently a junk room. Time to clean out and re-organize!

What’s your must-do DIY for 2017?

That DIY Party

My wish is for you to be surrounded by love this holiday season! It’s That DIY Party one day late.

Hand Dipped Holiday Marshmallow Treats

You can find me over with Jen at TaterTots and Jello today sharing the details about these quick and cute hand dipped marshmallow treats as a part of her Happy Holidays 2016 collection.

 I also added the following Young Living essential oils to my melted candy. Add 2 drops each and stir:

hand dipped marshmallow treats @diyshowoff #christmas

  • Orange Vitality
  • Nutmeg Vitality
  • Cinnamon Vitality 

hand dipped marshmallow treats @diyshowoff #christmas

Next year I’m going to use candy canes or peppermint sticks and add peppermint Vitality essential oil to my melted chocolate. Smaller marshmallows would be perfect for dipping into hot cocoa. 

All wrapped up and ready to gift. Perfect for parties, make & takes, hostesses, teachers and stockings.

Handmade Holiday: Essential Oil Infused Honey Gift Ideas

Handmade holiday gifts are the best, aren’t they?! Just knowing that someone put in so much time, effort and love into creating a gift gives it a special touch. 

handmade holiday @diyshowoff

I especially love a ‘useful’ gift, not to mention I really want those I love using non toxic products. One of my favorite things about my essential oils is the ability to feel better when everyone is feeling “yuck” and this Thieves tea recipe works so well to support a healthy immune system. It’s now our must have, go-to – especially at this time of year. I want my friends and family to experience the same benefits. 

So sweet! Essential oil infused honey and Essential Oil Holiday Hostess Guide @diyshowoff

Handcrafted gifts are unique treasures, thoughtful, unexpected and personal.

  5. Cap jar, secure a honey dipper with ribbon and decorate jar.

DIY Fall Sugar Scrub

It’s not often that I do a video. In fact, it’s extremely rare. However, I was recently challenged to put together a DIY video for a class and wanted to share here too. I didn’t do any fancy editing this time around and a lot of the quality was lost in uploading, etc. (ugh…practice really would make perfect). But here you go…a video tutorial for a DIY fall sugar scrub:

That DIY Party - autumn

 

DIYShowOff weekly recap:

Does anyone else wait until the busiest time of the year to begin a room makeover? I tell myself that I work better under pressure. Or I’m crazy. Probably a bit of both. It’s all a part of my partnership as with Shaw Floors. This week we emptied a room that was WAY out of control. Mr. DIY began some of the minor demo and I had a helper giving me his design opinions. Watch for more details in the weeks ahead.

It’s nearly time for holiday gatherings and family get-togethers, those seasonal occasions where a thoughtful hostess gift goes a long way in showing your appreciation for a welcome invitation, laughter, fun times, good friends and holiday cheer. The stuff memories are made of and perhaps you don’t want to show up empty handed. On top of all that, you might just have a passion for essential oils and you’re going to want to include powerful scents of awesome-ness because that’s how you roll. OIL.ALL.THE.THINGS! Am I right? Well, you’ve come to the right place today. Bookmark or pin for future reference! You’ve arrived at the best essential-oil infused holiday hostess guide on the internet! 

TO: YOU. FROM: ME. To kick off the occasion and because I was recently inspired by a Melissa Poepping video from the Young Living Live Your Passion Rally, I whipped up some super cute holiday gift tags. Not only will your creative gifts look festive and pretty but they’re going to smell amazing too.
