IKEA Rast hack using wood shims || AMAZING DRESSER

I am so super excited about todays post! I haven't dug in and done a real project in quite awhile (unless painting every room in my house counts!). Finally I dug deep and created a project I am super excited about! Just when you thought you had seen every single Rast hack on planet earth, I have come up with one that I've never seen before! I am smitten with my Rast hack and love it so much I think I'm going to make a 2nd one so I have a pair! Isn't it beautiful?! I started with a basic $34.99 IKEA Rast dresser and transformed it into this grid shim weathered oak beauty. I pulled … [Read more...]

How to organize bags, purses, and scarves in a tweens room

We have been slooooooowly getting organized at our new house. It always takes so long to feel moved in and totally comfortable at a new house. I heard the other day that it takes at least two years living in a new location to finally feel acclimated and at home. We've only been in Colorado 9 months so I guess I should stop being so hard on myself. I've really been focusing on making our kids feel settled in, totally comfortable, and "at-home" since the move so I've been focusing a lot of my energy on making sure they have friends and are involved in the community. Also, making their … [Read more...]

We love our Beddy’s bedding

Over the past few weeks I've shown you guys my son's and daughter's bedrooms. They both are sporting some new super cute bedding. I promised to give you more details about the bedding, so today I'm doing just that! Both of these bedding sets are called Beddy's Before I get too deep into this post, I want to be very clear... I paid for both of these bedding sets. I purchased them through the website like any other person would, and I paid full price for them. I was introduced to Beddy's from a few other blogs who wrote posts about them. As soon as I first saw them, I … [Read more...]

BHG Dining Room Table Review (it’s not great)

Okay, so let's talk about this table. I'm not going to beat around the bush here, the table is from Wal-Mart. Yes, Wal-Mart. I know, I can't believe it either. It does have one redeeming quality though - it's a Better Homes and Gardens brand, called Providence, which makes it a tiny bit more legit I suppose. I originally bought this table for the kitchen but it was too big (should have measured!) so it became the dining table by default. We needed furniture for the entire house and had only a couple days to buy it all. We headed to IKEA for almost everything, but I didn't want … [Read more...]

Our teenage son’s room is coming together

Now that we are getting settled into our new house, I have the very beginnings of some before and now pictures to share with you. Today I'm going to finally share our son's room which you got a glimpse of yesterday in our video walk through. Our son is 13 now (14 in January! Ack!) and wants a room that reflects him and his personality. I've been trying to put his room together and he has become so opinionated lately, which honestly, I think is great. I want him to love his room and enjoy spending time there. When we bought the house the room had two light blue walls and two dark blue … [Read more...]

Last minute Halloween decorating

Follow House of Hepworths on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest! Halloween is right around the corner! Seriously. It's in like 10 days. If you haven't decorated yet, here are a few ideas from my neighbors and myself that make decorating a breeze. We just moved here so I literally just threw out a few decorations and it took me like 3 seconds. Okay first up, we are a Star Wars family, so when I saw these two Star Wars Inflatables at Wal-Mart, I just had to get them. The $30 price tag seemed a lot cheaper than most inflatables so it was a no-brainer. We are officially the nerd family of … [Read more...]

Our tween daughter’s bedroom has a new pretty bed

The first thing I did when we moved in was paint. I had grand ideas of painting the entire house in one day hahaha! Want to know how many rooms I actually painted the first day? ONE. Yes, one. Obviously I sorely underestimated how long it actually takes me to paint a room. The one room I painted? My 11 year old daughter's room. I thought I'd start with the kids' rooms to get them settled quickly and then move on to the rest of the house. {{Still laughing at how silly I was to think I could do it all in one day}} Here's Kinsey's room before I painted, taken on our final walk through … [Read more...]
