Welcome to The Tattered Pew!

Here you will find an authentic, crazy hard working mom and wife who is an amateur photographer and self-taught designer. I am all about keeping it real and making my perfectly imperfect house into the home of my dreams. One step at a time…

My hope is that other working moms, like myself, who are busy and on a budget, will be encouraged through some of my daily shenanigans with life and home decorating! So grab some coffee or tea and join me as I share decorating tips and tricks, DIY projects, my eclectic style of coastal cottage farmhouse, and the occasional bout of sassiness! I pray you will enjoy reading about my home, my heart, my family and this crazy little family tradition of the church pew!

Hello friends! Today I want to share with you a quick DIY on how to make your very own citronella infused candles using essential oils. Here in Colorado summer is in full swing !

Hi friends, I’m back and so excited to share my latest post with you. As most of you know I have a thing for old church pews. I have been dreaming of adding one to our front porch for quite awhile now. And guess what? It finally happened! I have found another tattered pew to add to my collection. I hope you will click the link below to see our new pew over on the blog!

Hello friends! Just stopping by to share a quick post with you all! One more week of school for this teacher and then I will be able to enjoy 2 months of summer vacation! I am tired but I can see the finish line…
One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to garden and work out in our yard! So today I have rounded up a few of my favorite summer garden essentials from Target! I hope you will stop by to see what I picked out!
XOXO, KELLY

Hi friends! I wanted to apologize for the email that was sent out earlier with no blog attached! I had a slip of the finger! (I will go ahead and blame that one on Monday) This is what I had hoped to share… With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, I thought it would be fun to share a few easy fresh flower centerpieces that anyone can do! These ideas are guaranteed to make your mom smile! Click below for some flower inspiration! xoxo, KELLY

I have been searching for the perfect topiaries for quite awhile now. Ok let me rephrase that, “affordable” topiaries. Because you can usually find beautiful topiaries but goodness gracious they almost always cost a fortune! My love affair with topiaries started because of my mom. She has a set of beautiful boxwood topiaries that I have always admired and I especially love how she uses them in her home. Thus began my hunt for the perfect topiaries! Join me over on the blog today to see my new topiaries and how I have styled them! XOXO, KELLY

Hi friends I have a fun tradition to tell you about over on the blog today!

Hello friends! This past weekend I shared my girls’ bedroom makeover here on the blog and had quite a few of you inquire about the bed skirts that I made. So I figured I would give you a little tutorial in case you wanted to try them out for yourself! Click below for all the details! xoxo, Kelly

Hello friends! This past week was my Spring Break (I’m a kindergarten teacher) and I decided to tackle a mini makeover for the bedroom that my two little girls share. I love doing this sort of thing, you know…redecorating every chance I get? So for me this was a relaxing break from my every day normal routine. Plus it was truly a team effort which made it all the more fun…. and they LOVE it, and that makes it all worthwhile!

Click below to see all the lovely details and I hope you enjoy your weekend my friends!

Hi friends I hope you have had a lovely week! Can you believe it is already March? That means Spring is basically knocking at the door. So what better time than this to share my very first spring home tour with you.

I hope you will stop on by to see how I added some simple spring touches to our home and to see what the other talented bloggers are sharing as well! I hope you have a blessed day!
