10 Spray Painting Projects that Anyone Could Tackle! via House by Hoff

10 Spray Painting Projects that Anyone Could Tackle!

It has been a secret goal of mine to have a project published in the pages a magazine.  Recently, Canadian Home Trends magazine published my spray painted wicker chair in their July 2015 issue.  (See digital issue, here.  I’m on page 54!)  I was pretty excited to see it in print, and in honor of […]

Master Bathrrom via House by Hoff4

Decorating the Master Bath

Decorating my master bathroom has been a never-ending process.  Mostly because whenever I get something cute in here, I just end up taking it and using it elsewhere in the house… Since Mr. Hoff, Miss L., and I are really the only ones who “hang out” in here, I kind of felt like I was “wasting” […]


Happy Mother’s Day! {A Post for Miss L}

Last night Miss L. and I ran to the grocery store at the last minute before dinner.  I made a quick decision to grab her dress and headband off of the hook by the door as we were leaving.  I figured I might be able to get a few sweet pictures of her among the […]

Spray Painted Trunk via House by Hoff 2

Spray Painted Trunk Makeover (It’s $30 Thursday!)

So yesterday I actually Googled “What to do when you can’t get enough done in a day.”   (And then I Googled “What is the thing that connects your tongue to your mouth?” because Miss L. wanted to know.  It’s called your “frenulum” in case you were wondering.) Also, according to Google, I might have “chronic stress”. […]

$7 Piano Bench Makeover via House by Hoff

Reupholstered Piano Bench Makeover

 I can’t even believe that I let this piano bench sit in my basement for two years before doing something with it… For two years I let it go untouched.  What in the world took me so long?? Well, actually I know what took me so long.  I was a little intimidated at the idea […]

Painted Tin Can Mother's Day Gift via House by Hoff

Painted Tin Cans: A Mother’s Day Gift Idea

Of all the holidays, Mother’s Day is one that usually sneaks up on me.  Which is ridiculous.  There aren’t many people that I appreciate than my mother and mother-in-law.  They help us out a lot.  Also, I’m a mother.  So this day dedicated to celebrating us shouldn’t be such a sneak attack every year. This […]

Decorating the Master Bedroom: Mixing the Old and New

When we first moved into our house (nearly 3 years ago…wha?!} the first room we painted was the master bedroom.  It was an easy choice.  I always paint my bedrooms a light blue.  Always.  I like  my bedrooms to be serene, soothing, and callllllllmmmm. We bought a gorgeous upholstered headboard, some new bedding, and then […]

Great Cinco De Mayo Idea! Flowers in a Tomato Can via House by Hoff2

Flowers in Tin Cans

Mr. Hoff, Miss L, and I have been really enjoying the warm weather this week!  It feels so good to grill out and chase Miss L. around the yard…We literally have to chase her around, because she seems incapable of staying in her own yard.  She’s amazing at making up reasons that she has to […]

Spray Painted Lamp via House by Hoff

A Spray Painted Lamp

…There is a funny story to this lamp, actually. It begins with my ears perking up when the principal at my school asked me if I wanted an owl lamp that she received years ago as a gag gift.  She thought I might be able to do something cute with it. I, of course, happily […]

DIY Piping and Butcher Block Table via House by Hoff

DIY Piping Table

I had to pinch myself when Home Depot recently asked me to take part in a DIY Challenge.  I was all like, “Who? Me?  For real?!” As it turns out, they were for real, and I (obviously) jumped at the chance to take part in such a cool opportunity! They challenged 6 bloggers to use […]

How to Make a Message Board From an Old Picture Frame via House by Hoff2

How to Make a Message Board From an Old Picture Frame {$30 Thursday!}

There is something that never gets old about repurposing an old picture frame. (I see you.  You’re nodding your head.  Good.  I’m glad we agree.) I’ve been on a decorating kick in my classroom, of all places, and I needed a special piece that would catch the kids’ attention and motivate them.  I thought a […]
