DIY Fire Log Holder

For me, fall means leaves crunching, apple cider sipping and fire-crackling good times. To maximize the frequency of these good times, we recently created a cozy outdoor space with some new furniture and an outdoor fireplace. It is a great spot to land at the end of a long week… grab a favorite snack and cocktail and let the weekend begin! However, a storage container of some sort was needed for all the firewood. I searched and searched and then decided to build our own. This project couldn’t be easier - basic carpentry skills is all you will need! I love it because it is a bit modern, yet rustic. We are using ours outside, but it would be a great storage idea for inside too.

Holiday Decorating with Spray Paint

Hi y’all, it’s Monica from Monica Wants It! The holidays are here! I always get really excited to see all the new décor out at my favorite stores… until I see the prices. Then I get really excited to recreate it at home for way less. I’m obsessed with black and gold lately, so I decided on black, white and gold as the color scheme for all the holiday décor in my home. Plus, it looks great all the way through New Year’s Eve.

Decorate a Mantel

We all love a roaring fireplace in the cold winter months, but they are typically one of the hardest spots to decorate. It’s a focal point in a room so you want it to shine, but it can be difficult to find the right mix of decor that works well in such a small area.
