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...]

A video walk through of our new Colorado house!

Follow House of Hepworths on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest! Hey friends, guess what! It's VIDEO House Tour Time! Remember when I posted pictures of our new house? Well, still pictures are like, so last year, so I did a full-on video walk through tour of our new house. And before you watch it, I have to say this next part in all-caps. I apologize in advance. IT'S MY FAVORITE VIDEO I'VE EVER MADE. I am getting obsessed with youtube. It is so fun making videos. OMGersh. I love it. Here's the video! If you are having trouble viewing this video, click here to watch it. … [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...]

More progress in the basement – the furniture is in!

The basement has furniture! Finally. I thought this day would never come. In the last two posts I talked about removing a wet bar and having carpet installed. You would not believe the difference those two things have made in this space. In the back half of the long narrow main living area in the basement we set up our Ikea sectional and entertainment center. And in the front half of the main living area we set up our foosball table and drum set. The space is not huge like you'd assume a basement would be, but it is big enough for our needs and we are happy with it. … [Read more...]
