I love the boho vibe and how two completely mis-matched areas still have a cohesive feel. So pretty, so peaceful! Plans for a sliding barn door to separate the bedroom from the livingroom/dining room/kitchen area in the near future.

Featured

Woo hooo! Work on the #helloredreno series continues and is back with motivation to get the renovations completed by {hopefully} July 1st, 2019! That might be a tad ambitious but that’s the plan! This past week I installed a beautiful – stunning! – floral wallpaper mural! And you guys, I love the look of wallpaper. There are so many fun patterns/colors/designs – I could (and have) looked for days! But after lots of not-so-fun wallpaper removal in my past, I swore I’d never ever install wallpaper again. Well, the lasted all of a decade or two. I just couldn’t resist this. It’s just a small space, right? 

diyshowoff roeshel

I LOVE that I have creative freedom in this little slice of apartment oasis space to be bold and dramatic! Be still my heart. So many beautiful details and an inspired vision. The plan is for an airbnb rental but oh man, I want to live here. Think guests would mind? lol

Let’s take a little trip down memory lane, shall we?

(notice any other decorative changes?)

What’s new?

So, this isn’t a sponsored post. Just a review of what I purchased and a little overview on my installation experience. I ordered the wallpaper mural from MuralsWallpaper and the entire experience from start to finish was so easy that it’s something anyone can DIY! (Do you use “DIY” as a verb too?) 

vase of flowers de heem

This specific design is called Vase of Flowers by de Heem. This Vase of Flowers by de Heem Wallpaper Mural from 1645 is a beautiful design that will completely reinvent your interior with minimal effort, a wonderfully striking piece of classic art that will be sure to impress. This wallpaper will be particularly eye catching as dining room wallpaper, but the stylish floral design will work well in most rooms. It was love at first sight for me. 

The best part? It’s a custom! This mural was made to be the exact size of the wall space where I wanted to place it (with a little extra thank goodness, because old house = not square!). They send a mock up with quote for my approval BEFORE I paid for it. And because I wanted more of the colors on the left hand side, I responded with a request to ‘mirror image’ the design. No problem! The entire process was friendly, quick and easy. 

Ordering in three steps:

1) Select your image. Choose from the extensive collection of mural designs and photo wallpapers.

2) Specify your dimensions. Measure up your wall full height and width.

3) Produced and shipped within 3-5 days. For a custom order, it arrived quickly! Yay! 

wallpaper level utility knife

It comes in one continuous roll (with awesome packaging to ensure no damage) with printed instructions to use a straight edge and box-cutter/X-acto knife to split it up into pieces. My design size was divided up into 4 vertical pieces. 

mural wallpaper instructions

I originally was looking for a removable peel and stick type wallpaper and shopped EVERYWHERE so when I finally decided on this, I completely forgot and overlooked that I was looking for a self-sticking adhesive backing. But, this actually was a lot easier than I thought! 

What I did: 

I picked up a wallpaper paste and brush from the hardware store along with some other recommended tools: a seam roller and wallpaper smoother tool. Other tools: level and utility knife.  

wallpaper level utility knife

The installation probably took around 1- 1.5 hours. I unrolled the wallpaper on the floor, used a piece of cardboard underneath to protect the floor and using a straight edge, I cut along each dotted line to divide the roll up into 4 pieces. It has a nice durable thickness and the pieces were labeled.

cutting wallpaper

Next, I brushed the wallpaper paste onto the wall, picked up my piece and starting from the top left, smoothed the wallpaper down the wall over the wet paste. I used the smoother to remove air bubbles and to smooth the wallpaper into place. I had a wet rag on hand for cleaning up excess glue. So much easier than I anticipated. Hurray! The key is making sure that first piece is nice and level! 

installing wallpaper

There is no overlapping. Each piece butts up against the other, lining up the design. There is a little extra wallpaper to trim away on the top and bottom.  I used the seam roller on seams, wiped away any excess wallpaper paste. Top and bottom of the wallpaper was trimmed using a straight edge and X-acto knife where wallpaper meets trim.

diyshowoff mural

The last piece was a little trickier because it was wider and a lot of the right hand side had to be cut off. Again, I just used a straight edge and trimmed away the excess. 

Ta-da! The result: 

tada diyshowoff mural wallpaper

STUNNING! I am SO in love! It’s exactly what I wanted. Maybe even better!

Photoshoot:

And makes for a beautiful photography backdrop, doesn’t it? lol I told you it was love at first sight! Seeing it ON my wall makes me so happy! The vision for this space is happening!

This specific print is so interesting too. Each time you have a relaxing seat and gaze at it’s loveliness, there’s something new to discover. An ant or butterfly, a spider. The photos don’t do it justice.

I can’t wait for the entire room reveal! Stay tuned!

Share your thoughts! 

What do you think? Wallpaper fan? Not your thing? Not your style? Know what I mean when I say I sure loathe the removal? Willing to change your mind and take a risk when you fall in love with a print/pattern and it’s just want you and in mind for making a dramatic statement? I felt like this print was less trendy, the design is traditional. I absolutely love that it’s an art print mirror image. I can’t wait to design the rest of the room!

Spring Decorating with DecoCrated

Add some spring touches to your decor with a Spring 2019 subscription box from DecoCrated! That’s exactly what I did when I recently finished up my spring cleaning. Well, at least the main floor of our home is clean and organized. Upstairs is another story.  haha! 2nd floor, 2nd story, another story. See what I did there? Get it? I know. I’m so weird. 

decocrated wood organizer and chalkboard clipboard

Anyway, so…DecoCrated.com. With the exception of my monthly Young Living order, I am not usually a fan of subscription boxes. I find that usually they’re filled with sample items that I wouldn’t choose for myself (skin care with questionable ingredients, jewelry that isn’t my style, etc.). Know what I mean? The surprise part is happy, the contents … eh.

However, when it comes to decorative accents, count me in! I’m all about adding a few new pieces to freshen things up and I know you’ll fall in love with this subscription box too. Because if there’s something in there that you don’t care for, simply tuck it away in your “gifting” closet/box for a friend’s birthday or pay it forward and brighten someone’s day ‘just because’. But, my decor-loving buddies, I think you’re going to enjoy sprinkling some new spring accents around your home, adding a couple of key spring touches or swapping out something old for something new. 

decocrated spring pillows

It’s like treasure in the mail, a Christmas gift curated for your home each season, you guys! I love that! Imagine having a fun box filled with beautiful decorative home accents every quarter! You don’t have to ‘imagine’. Spoil yourself and make it happen.

Because I’m a nerd and really value getting the biggest bang for my buck, I mentally added up the items as I unboxed. Break it down. Each month when you walk into TJMaxx or Target or your favorite store or do some ‘window shopping’ online, how much is the cost of what’s in your cart for decorating? If you’re like me, it’s definitely more than $23.33 a month for an item or two. This Spring 2019 DecoCrated subscription box came with 9 items + a free gift (10!) so that’s approximately less than $7 for each piece of home decor when you use the code “DIY10” to get $10 off your subscription (did I mention free shipping?). SCORE! 

I created an unboxing video with all the details: 

After the video, I crated it all back up and popped over to the #helloredreno studio to refresh the decor. Take a look!

Eclectic Sun Room Makeover

Featured

This little room at the back of our house has gone through several transformations. We mostly call it the mud room but it’s more of a sun room, reading nook, sitting room, overflow from the dining room when entertaining (more seating)… a quite space off the dining room with French doors leading to the back patio.

Boho Sunroom Makeover

Well, the sun room got an unplanned makeover when we used some leftover paint from the man cave paint job. And it gave me a chance to turn Spring cleaning into something so rewarding – a room makeover with a zero budget by shopping the house. But first, let’s take a trip down memory lane for this little room…

When we bought our house, it had a single door and blue indoor/outdoor carpeting. Right away we added French doors, slate tile and a fresh coat of paint. 


It’s one of my grown up “doll house” rooms. I’m always changing it up in there by shopping the house for furniture and accessories. The HUGE mirror was frameless and above the fireplace in our living room when we bought our house. We moved it to this room to give the illusion of more space and light, added a frame and a vinyl monogram.

Do you move furniture and decorative accessories around from room to room to freshen things up or do you call it permanently perfect and enjoy things as is for years?

There was even a brief stint as a breakfast nook.

thrifty sitting room

I love an eclectic vibe of the collected decor…can you tell?

This DIY half globe light fixture cover is one of my favorite projects:

And these DIY no-sew script curtains. They didn’t go back up this time but I’ll be finding somewhere else in our home to use them. Do you have decorative accessories that you hang onto because you’re just so in love?

Remember when I had these vintage teacher desks in the kitchen too? Again, always rearranging. It’s just such a joy! Motivation to clean, something new without spending. I’m addicted. 

Holiday decorating too!

Let’s see the latest look, shall we? Finally, right? I am in love with the happy and bright atmosphere with the dark moody wall color! The collected decor from shopping around the house gives it an eclectic boho feel!

And all that’s new in this room is the wall paint (which was actually leftover, so again, zero dollars spent! Gotta love that!). Wall color: Carbon Copy (Behr)

Birthday Bash

Hi DIYShowOff friends! Oh dear blog friends, I’m so blessed by your friendship and so happy you’re here. Thank you for your encouragement and support! 

Birthday Bash:

I love that you’re here. Our mutual interest in DIY has brought us together and I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you on a more personal level. I love our collaborations, our stories of putting so much love, so much of ourselves into creating  a beautiful home.

unicorn essential oils make and take

If you know me by now, you know that not only do I love being creative and crafty with DIY projects, I’m passionate about wellness and a chemical free home so as I celebrate my last year before hitting a big birthday milestone in 2020, I wanted to share some fun birthday incentives with my favorite blog friends. 

Savvy Minerals make up

Giving back: 

It’s my birthday month! My birthday wish is to give back in a big way. That’s the plan! For March, when you purchase a Premium Starter Kit using enroller/sponsor #1836762 at YoungLiving.com, I’ll be donating 25% to providing product gifts for some special recipients! I’d love to gift the Thieves Disinfecting (non toxic) Spray to cancer patients in our area! Thieves is SO amazing and smells good too!

Thieves spray

6 (SIX!!!!) close family members diagnosed with cancer in the past 6 years! That’s 6 too many! Sharing about chemical free products, essential oils with no side effects and making healthier choices may only be a super small imprint on those I love, their families and the world – but it’s one positive step in the right direction!

I appreciate your shares and referrals too! Thank you so much for helping me!

Gift of Wellness: 

Think oils aren’t for you because you’re not a hippie? Not crunchy? Or that there’s no way they can actually work like the “crazy oil people” say they can? See, that’s where you’ve got it wrong. Sooooo wrong. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to try.

It’s my goal for every one of my friends and family to have essential oils in their home so they have options to live above the wellness line and non toxic choices for aches and pains, immune system support along with support for other body systems too – you need these oils in your life!

diyshowoff

You guys! It’s not about sales! I don’t care where you get your Young Living products from – reach out to your closest bestie who loves the Young Living lifestyle, link arms and get off the fence! But if you don’t have someone close to you, geographic location is of little importance in today’s world with connection at our fingertips! I’d be honored if you chose me as your enroller/sponsor. I’m so super passionate about sharing wellness, purpose and abundance. Who you join under does make a difference and we have a rockstar community for support and education ready and waiting for you (you might even recognize blog friends that you know!) so that you’re not all alone wondering how or why to use essential oils in addition to lots of education, resources, fun, incentives, giveaways and so much love and support! We’re a close-knit group who values friendship. 

Premium Starter Kit

^^^ THIS Premium Starter Kit is the BOMB! 12 essential oils and the Desert Mist Diffuser!!! It’s beautiful, has LED lights including a candle flicker mode! And has settings to run 5, 8 or 10 hours!!! The value of all of that on it’s own is over $400! Wow! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

A little about Roeshel: 

As a home DIY and decorating blog author, Certified Aroma Freedom Technique Practitioner and inspired Young Living user and business leader, I share DIY decorating tutorials here on the blog but more importantly, I love teaching that a beautiful home begins with creating a happy and healthy environment. We can do all of the pretty cosmetic renovations and fill our home with beautiful decorative accents but surrounding ourselves with positive energy and promoting emotional and overall wellness are the most important accessories. Living our best life is the most treasured “do-it-yourself” project of all.

roeshel

Before blogging transformed into a full time career in 2007, my work history included nearly 20 years of administrative support in healthcare and especially because my family history within the past 5 years dramatically changed from no medical history of cancer to include cancer survivors (4 close family members), I possess an interest in health, healing and natural approaches which led me to Young Living and the Aroma Freedom Technique. I am passionate about promoting wellness from the inside out, developing an attitude for gratitude, raising awareness for chemical free living and empowering others to achieve their goals.

Wellness Inspired Living: 

As I’ve mentioned and can’t help mention and feel compelled to mention because it’s been so life changing for us – I’m also very passionate about raising awareness for wellness with essential oils, products with non toxic ingredients and creating a chemical free home. I provide fun educational events (local and online) and support so that it’s not as overwhelming as it sometimes feels. Baby steps to a healthy choices are steps in the right direction! I’d love to share more of my story with you.
