How a Simple Cob Shed was Built "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Here is a description of how a small cob shed was made with all local, natural materials. The audio is compromised by wind, but you can still get a good feeling for how the structure was built. Nicely done I would say.

Bathroom Reveal + Paint By Numbers Wall Mural "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

TODAY IS A BIG DAY. Weve partnered with Sherwin-Williams and finally finished (like totally finished) one of the rooms in the Merc! Guys, meet my teenage daughters bathroom + closet!

When we bought the Merc, this space was on our weird and frustrating Merc perks list. The wall that separates the bedroom from the bathroom was one of those this is not moving and youre going to have to work around it situations.

When I was designing this space for my daughter Ivie, I wanted it to be perfectly teenager. Lots of light surfaces, eclectic design, and rocking my favorite statement wall.

I was originally going to paint the whole room pink but decided against it. The color white that I used is THE BEST WHITE PAINT COLOR IN THE ENTIRE WORLD! Its a custom mix at Sherwin-Williams called Mandi White, you can get the formula here!

There is this half truth floating around that in rooms like a bathroom that get heavy use and moisture that you need to use a higher sheen finish (like semi-gloss) for cleanability. In my opinion thats false- if you use the right kind of paint. Sherwin-Williams Emerald Matte finish is my go to for every space in my house. Its the perfect mix of style and durability!

DIY Paint By Numbers Wall Mural

As I was scouring my brain for something to do on the wall, I came across an image by one of my favorite IG artists Colleen. It hit me like a ton of bricks what if I had her design a paint by numbers wall mural!! She is amazing, you should definitely go and follow her!

A Buttery & Flaky Minced Pear Pie + Giveaway "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Who doesnt dream of a homemade pie or a small bakery that makes pies with quality ingredients that taste as good as homemade? I know I do and a good bakery, for me, is an essential part of my ideal neighborhood. Growing up in Nashville, my favorite was Beckers Bakery on 12th Avenue South for the little pastel-colored cookies they made. The neighborhood bakery sharing a recipe with us this week is Sister Pie, a little corner shop in a former beauty salon on Detroits west side. Sister Pie bakes up rustic pies that are nontraditional in flavor combinations, drawing on the native produce from Michigan, owner Lisa Ludwinskis home state.

I chose the Minced Pear Pie recipe from Lisas cookbook, Sister Pie: The Recipes & Stories of a Big-Hearted Bakery in Detroit. Its pear season, so you have this wonderful, pear-derived minced meat-style filling enclosed between two buttery, flaky crusts. What youll see below are the recipes for both the filling (which you could use to make hand pies or gift jars or whatever you like!) and also the crust (which you can file away as your go-to crust). A quick note about the recip...


In London, An Old Edwardian Home with A Fresh, New Spirit "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

They say good things come to those who wait, and for Louise, owner of a PR consulting business, and Ryan, a graphic designer, that sentiment couldnt be more true. Louise and Ryan had such a clear, and specific list of dream-house wishes that it took them 13 years to finally land the North West London home theyd always wanted. Their list was pretty simple but narrow: they were looking for a south-facing Edwardian home that was in need of a renovation, located in a particular area that included just five streets. After a year of calls to real estate agents, letters written, and watching the market like hawks, Louise, Ryan, and their children Arthur and Ivy bought this home five years ago before it even went on the market. The local estate agents knew us and what we were looking for and I was the first to view the property and made an asking price offer on the spot, even before Ryan had a chance to view it, Louise recalls.

It was the nicest, most central neighborhood that we could afford and it was as close as we could get to the area in which we were [brought] up and to where many of our friends and family lived, Louise shares. Our first flat was just around the corner from the...


Paint By Numbers Bathroom Makeover Details "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Did you guys catch the full reveal of my daughter Ivies bathroom?! It is one of my favorite spaces Ive ever designed!! This post is giving you all of the details on the eye candy and everything you need to know to recreate it yourself!

So lets get to sourcing!

The star of the show is the mural designed by Colleen Elizabeth, I have been obsessing over her creations for such a long time and was so excited when she said she would design one just for this space. You can see the full step by step tutorial for the Paint By Numbers mural here! The Memo Light is from Article and such a fun addition!

The black and white floor tile is from Daltile, you can get it at and read all about why I chose it here! I also used in stock white 44 tile for the shower and wall. Ive been wanting to tile an entire wall again after doing it in my $939 bathroom renovation and it just gives off a vibe unlike any other.

Money 101 with Sandra Grahame: How to Create Profit by Design "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Starting a business is a risky, often terrifying leap of faith one studded with sacrifices and countless late nights and those who dare make the jump tend to hedge their bets. They pad their chances for success by succumbing to the newly-launched-business martyrdom of paying oneself a sliver of their earnings, or not even paying themselves at all (until money is coming in at a steady pace).

This frugal planning can be all well and good for some, but it doesnt necessarily help the business, or the business owner, in the long run. Smart Cookies Co-Founder Sandra Grahame has built her own business and life around giving others easy-to-digest, real talk about planning finances related to self-started business ventures. Today shes sharing her tips on how other entrepreneurs and business-launching-hopefuls can plan the life they want to live based on their take-home profit, and have their business (and earnings) follow and not the other way around. Take it away, Sandra! Kelli

6 Dreamy Vacation Rentals for a Winter Getaway "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Thank you to HomeAway/VRBO for partnering with me on this post. All opinions are my own.

We just got back from a fun trip to Whitefish, Montana and we're missing vacation already! So we decided to plan another weekend getaway with some friends in January. I'm so excited! Winter vacations are awesome, because they give you something to look forward to during the darkest and dreariest months of the year. But "winter vacation" means something different to everyone. Some people seek out snowy weather for a classic white Christmas, or head to the mountains for an annual ski vacation. Others want to escape the cold and dream of laying on the beach. I found six dreamy vacation rentals throughout the U.S., to suit six different winter vacation styles. I'm curious, which one appeals most to you?? And see if you can guess which one fits me!

Winter getaways and the vacation rentals to suit them

1. Have a private mountain to yourself for the ultimate ski vacation.

Let's kick this list off with a super cool and unique opportunity. HomeAway/VRBO is giving away a once-in-a-lifetime ski experience with Eagle Point Resort in Beaver, Utah. The winner and up to 19 friends will get private ski instruction, a $5,000 travel stipend and a three-night stay in this luxurious cabin. Imagine skiing down powdery slopes with no other skiers, boarders or lift lines in sight, plus $5,000 to spend on your travels, and a gorgeous cabin to come home to. I'm not even a skiier and that sounds absolutely amazing!!! The sweepstakes just kicked off yesterday, so click to enter here.

2. Trade your winter coat for a swimsuit, a beach, and gloriously warm weather.

DIY Barn Door Hardware from Washers "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

We all love barn door anything, but the high cost of hardware can be prohibitive.  In this tutorial, I'll show you how we DIYed our own barn door hardware the absolutely least expensive way using all new off the shelf materials.  And it's pretty easy to make too, with just a drill and a jigsaw and some spray paint.

The barn door hardware is made up of two parts - the rail and the rollers.  The rail is attached to the cabinet.  The rollers are attached to the door and roll along the rail.


The Rail - Barn Door Hardware DIY

Let's start with the rail.

To make the rail track, simply use 1" wide flat metal bar, available at most any hardware store, for about $10 for six feet.  You'll need some leftover flat metal bar for the roller pieces too.  For our 4 foot wide project, I purchased a six foot long piece.

Using a drill bit designed for metal, drill holes to mount the flat metal bar to the cabinet.  Since we were using 1/4" bolts, we used a 1/4" drill bit to drill the holes.  You'll need to drill holes every two feet or so - we did three holes for a four foot wide cabinet.  Do place your holes where it makes sense in mounting to the cabinet.

The rail needs to be set off the cabinet so the door has room to pass.  You can find spacers at most any hardware store.  The spacer length should be equal to the thickness of your door panel - our door was 1" thick, so we used a 1" spacer.  

You'll also need washers, a bolt and locking nut.  We used 1/4" size.

Advice For New Home Buyers "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

This post is sponsored by Travelers Insurance; All opinions are my own.

There are a few moments in life when you actually feel like an adult. Truthfully, most of my life is spent looking around wondering if anyone can see through my 35 year old facade to the Barbie loving 12 year old underneath. One of the scariest/best moments of adulthood was when we bought our first house. It was in 2009. We found it listed as a short sale and it was in rough shape.

Thankfully we were able to look past the bad carpet and beige everything and see the potential. When we moved out 7 years later, this is what we had created. A home!

Buying a home can be downright terrifying, and for good reason. But if youre willing to let go of all the expectations that Pinterest has created in your mind, and open your heart to a little bit of adventure, buying a new home can be downright life changing!

Ive partnered with Travelers to share some tips for first-time home buyers, theirs are practical, mine are more pep-talky. I think you need to hear both.

Invest in an inspection.

Most banks require an inspection for financing, but even if they didnt, I cant stress enough what a huge deal this is. An inspector knows exactly what to look for. While we tend to see finishes and floor plans inspectors look for structural issues and damage. They are worth the investment!

If you hire a realtor, make sure they ar...


Living with Others, Part 2 "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Living with Others | Design*Sponge

The other week I ran into my old roommate, whom I hadnt seen or talked to in three years (time really does fly). We made plans to meet up the following week, and I ended up spending a wonderful evening with her and her friends, talking about life, adventures, relationships, hopes and dreams and what living together was like. Just like friends that youve had from childhood, you can have this unexplainable connection with someone youve lived with. You might not see each other for years but when you do, theres a special sort of mutual appreciation that only exists when youve shared something meaningful even though it might have felt mundane and ordinary at the time.

In Living with Others, Part 1 we spoke to some truly inspiring people about their most significant takeaways from living together as a couple, as mother and daughter, and as a family with kids. Today Im excited to share with you Living with Others, Part 2, where we hear honest thoughts on the same subject from another couple, Cindy and Mo, roommates Tyler and Alita, and J...
