Guest Blogger: Newcomb Home



** My next guest blogger, Katie from Newcomb Home, is one of my favorite blogs! I specifically asked her to guest blog for me because I know you guys will just love her blog as much as I do. Take it away, Katie! *

Hi there HoH Readers! I’m Katie from Newcomb Home. I’m honored to be at Allison’s site today to show off a few of my favorite projects.

I live with my husband and two furry roommates in Portland, Oregon and blog about all things related to my house and our life renovating it – great tips for home improvement, cheapo (and awesome) decorating ideas, and what to do when your water main starts flooding the garage 🙂 On occasion I’ll even throw in my feeble attempts at cooking (if I can succeed no doubt you can too!).
I hope you’ll head over to Newcomb Home to check out some of these projects!
That’s the husband and me, with wine and carbs. Two of my favorite things!
The first project I’m excited to share with you is my DIY wall art. I’ve included a super easy tutorial that will help anyone make some fantastic art for their wall. All you need are some frames, scrapbook paper, acrylic paint, and a stencil.
The best part is that this entire project cost 70 bucks! Including the frames! Can’t beat that price.
The second project I’d love to share is these elegant water pitchers.
They’re made out of wine bottles rescued from the recycle bin, a vinyl stencil, and some etching cream. As you can see, I like easy crafts. Any project that can be completed from start to finish while watching Glee is a win in my book. Pop over to Newcomb Home for the simple tutorial.
Finally, I’m stoked that I get to share my guest room reveal with Allison’s lovely readers.
I have 8 cans of spray paint to thank for this transformation, along with a few DIY accessories and new bedding. Check out the before and after pics to see what a difference some paint makes!
I hope you’ll head on over to Newcomb Home to check out all of our projects, recipes, and all the shenanagins we get ourselves into fumbling our way through home renovation.
You can also find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
Thanks again Allison for the opportunity to introduce myself, all of your fabulous ideas, and most of all, for your sense of humor. Hope you have a great vaca!
