How to easily replace door hinges

After only a few weeks of living in the new house, I had HAD IT with the door that goes from the laundry room into the garage. We use this door like 20 thousand times a day, and the door had self-closing hinges. These door hinges are seriously the most annoying door hinges in the history of ever. Okay, okay, I'm being a little dramatic, but seriously, I hate them. Every time I'd quickly run into the garage to grab something, the door would slam itself shut behind me. Seriously drove me batty. We tried propping the door open for a week or so but it was still so irritating. Also, … [Read more...]

Painting the Dining Room + cutting in tips (video)

As you can tell from the title, today's post is about painting the dining room. When we moved in, the dining room was RED. Like, RED red. It was so dark red that IMO if felt like a cave in there. No matter how open the blinds were, or how bright of bulbs I put in the fixture, the room was just dark. It also had these awesome curtains that I'm sure were super expensive and popular in 1995 when the house was built, but UmNoThanks not my style. The curtains came down literally the day we moved in. They were just old and permanently attached which meant that they had about 20 years … [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...]

They paired the entire outfit with some black leggings. To make the shirts I dusted off my Silhouette Cameo, found the M&M logo on google, … [Read more...]

How to change the plug on your dryer to accommodate a 3- or 4-prong outlet

Have you ever moved to a new house, gone to plug in your dryer, and CRAP! the plug doesn't fit? Most houses come with either a 3-prong or 4-prong outlet for your dryer.

So what are you supposed to do? Call an electrician for a pretty penny just to hook up a new power cord for you? It is one of the easiest DIYs out there. There is no reason you need to waste your hard earned … [Read more...]
