I have some really exciting news! This has been a long time in the works and has take a lot of time over the past several months to develop which is why you haven't seen as many posts from me recently. As a follower of my site I wanted you to be the first to know...
Introducing Burlap and Denim Home
This is a really exciting solution to a challenging problem. I'm so excited to share it with you and hope that you'll love it too.
It all started with my love interior design when I was a tween. It evolved into building and designing my own homes and then into being an interior designer for many beautiful homes. As family and kids began to enter the picture I still wanted to be able to help my friends, family, and followers and to share all of the fun projects I was working on - Burlap Read more [...]
If you are anything like me you LOVE shopping at Target. Let's start with the carts...if your Target has upgraded carts like mine does, you know what I am talking about. They are so smooth, light weight, and easy to turn. Well this post isn't about the carts, but it is about the app from Target called Cartwheel.
Downloading the app is a cinch, just go to the app store and search "Cartwheel". You can find it on a tablet, computer or phone (Android or Apple). I logged in with my Facebook account which allows me to see what my friends are saving on but you could use your Target.com login as well. Then you can browse all of the offers! There are offers in all the categories from clothing to house wares and even holiday. Each offer has a limited time and each one is different, there are up to 700 total offers. Read more [...]

I want to share an AWESOME website that I found recently. It's called:
They have the best fonts! You know I love a great font and graphic design and they have both. Once you become a FREE subscriber you can even download a bunch of FREE fonts to try out. (And don't worry, you won't get SPAMed for subscribing, I've checked them out, they are legit!)
Their Hand Shop pack is totally Burlap & Denim style. It gives you the look of a hand drawn sign using their fonts. In the past I have spent hours (seriously, hours) picking out the best fonts that go together and work for the project that I am working on. The great thing about FontsCafe is that they do the matching for you. So lets say you want to make a chalk board art piece that looks Read more [...]
In reflecting back over the past year (and a few months) since I started blogging, I realized that I usually share a cool project, list the how to's and send it out into the blogosphere and the world of Pinterest, but rarely share what happened to all of those projects over the next days and months. Instead of giving you a glammed up version of my best projects of 2012, I thought I'd share a few mistakes, changes, and fails that came AFTER I hit the "publish" button.
1. My pantry. While I love my pantry, I wrote that post mostly to show my organizing abilities in order to land a spot on a local TV program. It worked! And my pantry went crazy viral. I don't have a "fail" for my pantry, but some of the comments were hilarious and worth taking a look at. Especially this one "Your pantry is gorgeous Read more [...]
I'm the last of the 14 bloggers to choose my favorite Before and After project from One Project Closer's Habitat for Humanity series (read about their AWESOME party and how it helps Habitat for Humanity HERE). I figured all the great projects would have been chosen by the time I got to choose, but I was o wrong! There were over 150 amazing projects linked up! I battled back and forth between my top five and finally decided that The Little Cottage on the Pond is my winner!
Tricia transformed her everyday kitchen into a beautiful neutral rustic kitchen.
I love how she opened up cabinets and replaced the corner area with open shelving but still left plenty of regular cabinets to hide the unsightly kitchen necessities. The is the same as in the before photos but looks amazing with the Read more [...]
I am a huge Habitat for Humanity fan, and I'm not just talking about their ReStore shops. So when I was asked to be apart of a series that donates to Habitat, shows off your home improvement projects, and gives away gift cards to my readers, I was all in!
The awesome bloggers from One Project Closer and The Better Half have been putting this series on for four years. But, good news for us, they are expanding the series for this, their fifth year. They have invited Burlap & Denim and 13 other blogs to help promote and choose the winners, as well as featuring that winner in an article on that blogger's site! That means 14 chances for you to win!

I LOVE enamel signs! When we built our little french cottage a few years ago I so wanted a cobalt sign with our address on it but I couldn't find one. Well I hadn't heard of RAMSIGNs back then.

Aren't they perfect? They have many different colors, fonts, shapes and designs. For my house, I'd love a black and white one for my black front door. They'd Read more [...]
