Guest Blogger: Full of Great Ideas



Hi, my name is Stephanie from Full of Great Ideas. I am like most of you out there reading this; a mom to 2 wonderful yet demanding kids, wife to an amazing man, and a serious crafter who wants to save lots of money by doing everything myself. I have been inspired by House of Hepworths for a long time and I am so grateful to Allison for this amazing opportunity to share with all of you some of my best items. Allison is one amazing blogger and so kind to be willing to share her wonderful blog with others!

I started Full of Great Ideas as a crafting and home decorating tutorial blog. At first it was a way to share my simple and inexpensive ideas with total strangers and it has turned into my way of finding myself. Almost every post I do is a tutorial and the majority of the items I use are what I have around the house. I share many ideas in a wide range of areas, from craft to home decor to things to do with my kids. Please stop by to see what else I have done. I look forward to sharing with all of you.

I am happy and proud of so many of the projects I have done in our home. Many of my projects are small dollar projects but they have a huge impact like spray painting all the door hardware, stoppers and floor vents throughout my entire house for $25! I also love the simple crafts I do with my kids, like the teachers personalized notepad gifts that cost nothing but received rave reviews. And I have transformed ugly furniture into a beautiful kitchen set with a couple coats of black paint and a little elbow grease.

Here are my three absolute favorite projects since I started Full of Great Ideas 7 months ago.

1. Name/Date Established Art.

I have to say this is my absolute favorite (extremely simple and inexpensive) project I have ever made! I make this easy Wall Art as gifts for weddings, house warming, teacher’s appreciation, and any other occasion I can think of. To be honest with you, I think I have made these for every person I know. I give a simple tutorial and the links to where you can find the letters online for free.

2. Framing a Builder Grade Mirror

 I have always lived in new homes and have hated the horrible builder grade mirrors but I can’t justify ripping them out to pay to have another one installed. So my husband and I have framed them with simple moldings and glue. A simple and inexpensive weekend project with a huge impact.

3. Flat Screen TV Frame

When I agreed to put a TV in our bedroom (I know it is horrible 🙂 ) I made sure my husband knew I wanted the TV to be framed so it wasn’t the only thing you see when you walk into the room. We created a simple frame using crown molding and trim for under $35 and I think it looks amazing. Stop by to see exactly how we did it.

I hope to see you at Full of Great Ideas so I can share some of my other projects.

Thank you again to Allison at House of Hepworths for this amazing opportunity to share some of my ideas on her amazing blog!
