Hot Beverage Station + How to Clean a Coffee Maker

I’m sharing affresh® in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™. #affresh

Hello there! One of my must haves in my kitchen is a hot beverage station. We do not drink coffee, but we are addicted to hot chocolate. ha! Annnnd in the winter (or on a super cool summer night like we have been having here) a hot cup of apple cider is perfect. About once a month or so I like to clean our single serve brewer really well with affresh® Coffeemaker Cleaner. It is amazing at getting out all of those hard water deposits & mineral build-up. Let me show you how! :)

10 Free Things to do in Northwest Arkansas

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of CORT. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am so excited to be partnering with CORT Furniture Rental to share 10 Free Things to Do in Northwest Arkansas! I have to admit when my hubby came to me 10 years ago & told me that there was an job opening in Northwest Arkansas, I was like Northwest where???  I had no clue what to expect! We drove up one weekend to take a look, and our family immediately fell in love with the area. We decided it would be the perfect place to raise our family! We moved here that summer. We live right in the middle of the beautiful Ozark Mountains. We have all 4 seasons. Fall & spring are both beautiful. Summer is not too hot, and we do get some snow in the winter. So fun! I LOVE where we live. We love it so much that we are planning on moving to new home soon right down the road. I will fill you in on all the details very soon. Annnnnd if you are thinking about moving here, even better! Let me tell you more!

7 Things To Do Before Summer Vacation

I’m sharing affresh® in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™.  #affresh

Hello there! Summer is almost here! Eek! My kiddos have exactly 3 weeks until the last day of school as of yesterday. Oh my! I am busy getting the house clean, in order & getting our summer break all planned out. I am so excited to be partnering with affresh® to share a little glimpse into how I prepare our home & family for summer break. I love to start summer with a fresh, clean home.  I love that whenever I have a specific cleaning job to do, I can count on affresh® cleaners to provide the right tool for the job. I know you can, too! So let’s get to my list of 7 Things to do Before Summer Vacation.

7 Things to Do Before Summer Vacation #affresh #ad

1. With all my kiddos home during the summer, we do a lot of cooking on the stove. To get the stove prepped, I always plan to clean the stove & oven before summer break starts.

To keep your ceramic cooktop shiny & sparkling like new you can use affresh® Cooktop Cleaning Wipes. These cooktop cleaner wipes are dual-sided with built-in scrubbers on one side to remove residue & a smooth side on the other to give you a streak-free finish*. They are specially made for your ceramic cooktop. (They can also be use on gas stovetop grates as well!) *When used as directed.

Armoire Makeover with Devine Color + Target

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Devine Color. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hello there! I have a confession to make. :) Even though I'm a DIY blogger, I still have projects on my to do list that sit and sit and sit. You know when you buy all the supplies to make something, and then they sit on your closet floor for months? Or you have tons of ideas pinned on Pinterest, but you just never get around to them? Or maybe you have a piece of furniture sitting in your garage (patiently) waiting on its makeover? Well, that was me! ha! I bought this armoire almost a year ago. It's been collecting dust & random garage items for months. It was dying for a makeover. With a little help from Devine Color + Target, it was finally time. :)

Armoire Makeover at GingerSnapCrafts.com #forthehome

Let me show you the before. A little bit 80s, wouldn't you say? :) I bought this armoire for $50 from a friend of mine last summer. I have a thing for armoires! ha! I knew it had good bones, and it just needed some TLC. I loved the crown molding & all the details. I loved that the doors swung all the way open. I loved the two huge drawers at the bottom. I didn't love the color, and the hardware had to go. It was a bit clunky & dated for my taste.

armoire before

Annnnd the back....not sure why it had a huge hole cut out of it? Hmmmmmm......

armoire before 1

Yep, it was time to plan a makeover & head to Target. :) If you have been to Target lately, you might of notice the amazing line of Devine Color by Valspar products in the home improvement section near the light bulbs. Tip: If you don't live near a Target, you can always purchase all of these amazing products online at target.com. Simply search for Devine Color & everything should pop right up. By the way, these products are only available at Target. They are designed to coordinate with Target home decor, and they are perfect for every budget. All I needed for my project was one can of paint & one roll of wallpaper.

   

I literally spent a good 30 minutes in Target just enjoying & thinking about all the amazing colors and design combinations. Tip: I love how the wallpaper has color swatches right on the label to match up with coordinating paint colors. It makes it super simple to decide what patterns match with what colors. I ended up choosing a fun almost coral color called Devine Primrose and a coordinating wallpaper to go along with it called Suit & Tie.

For this project you will need:

  • Devine Color by Valspar Creamy Wall Coatings Interior Paint & Primer
  • foam roller brush
  • drop cloth
  • hand sander
  • medium grit sandpaper
  • new hardware (optional)
  • wood filler (optional)
  • 1 sheet backing board
  • table saw
  • Devine Color by Valspar Peel and Stick Removable Wallpaper
  • straight edge cutter
  • cutting mat

Once I got home with my goodies, the first thing I did was take my armoire completely apart. I removed all the hinges & old hardware. I filled any screw holes that I wasn't going to be using anymore with wood filler. I let that dry. Then I sanded down my entire armoire. I didn't sand all the way down to the bare wood, but I did sand just enough to get any shiny, glossy areas off. After everything was sanded, I cleaned off all of the dust using a damp cloth. 

armoire before 3

Now the fun begins! It's time to paint!

armoire8

Whenever I'm painting furniture I always use a 4 inch foam roller brush. I find that it always helps give a nice smooth finish when you use that type of brush. Plus, the paint goes on quickly with a roller type brush. It was amazing to see how smooth this paint went on. Even with just one coat, the color was amazing. It adhered to the wood perfectly. I ended up doing two coats of paint on the whole armoire with a 3rd coat just to touch up areas I had missed.

armoire7

Next, I cut a new backing piece for the armoire. If you remember in the before the backing piece had a big hole right in the middle. Tip: Don't forget to cut a small hole for your plugs to go through!

armoire2

I mentioned this before, but here's a close-up look. I love how the wallpaper shows matching paint colors.

armoire3
To cover the backing board, I needed two sheets of wallpaper cut just a little bit longer than the backing board. I smoothed it out working on one end & smoothing it with my hand until it was all nice & flat. Just be sure to work out any bubbles. The great thing about this wallpaper is that it's removable. If you have an air bubble or if it's a little crooked, simply remove it & reapply.

armoire4
When my back was completely covered, I just flipped it over & used a straight edge to remove the excess wallpaper.

armoire5
Here's how it looked before I screwed it onto my armoire.

armoire6
Annnnnnnd here's the after. I kind of love it!


armoire1

I accessorized my armoire with a few goodies that I found at Target. I added a few baskets (I love baskets!), a navy throw & a fun rug. All these items tie in together to make our new armoire feel cozy & right in place in our home. I love how Devine Color products are especially created to coordinate almost seamlessly with the amazing Target decor line. It makes decorating your home so, so easy!

tv cabinet makeover with Valspar

These fun baskets from Target fit perfectly in the shelves. How cool is that? They are perfect for storing remotes & game controllers for my kiddos.

armoire2

I also used baskets from Target to organize the drawers underneath. Can you spot the Devine Color wallpaper underneath? I had enough on one roll to cover the entire back and the bottom of both drawers. Awesome! :)

armoire


If you look close, you can see my curtains. Yep, you guessed it! They're from Target, too!

Do you have an old piece of furniture sitting in your garage?
Don't be afraid! Pick up some Devine Color at Target,
& soon your home will have a brand-new look at an affordable price!
If I can do it, I know you can too! It's easy to make big changes in your home. :)
