    Fall Decor Home Tour – My Secret to Adding All the Fall Feels to Your Home!

    Hello sweet friends! Welcome to our Fall Blog Hop!! If you’re coming from Crystal and Cleats, welcome!! So, it’s finally FALL! The best season of all, if you ask me! It means pumpkins, sweaters, boots, scarves, crisp sunny days! Okay, well maybe that’s what it meant back when I lived in Georgia – now its more so an extended summer, but with pumpkins.  Sometimes, I’ll turn on the AC and light me up the fireplace and just pretend for a few minutes 😛 But, even if its still hot as all get out here in SoCal, that doesn’t mean the Fall decor falls by the wayside.  In fact, it’s the…

    DIY Concrete Overlay Countertops

    Hey friends!! Now that the One Room Challenge is finally complete, I can finally get back to my regular DIY blog posts for y’all.  If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I had y’all vote on which project you wanted to see first – and this post is the result of that poll!  So here ya go – how to install DIY concrete countertops with Ardex Feather Finish concrete! I will also tell you, these counters are NOT impervious to scratches.  My husband already opened two wine bottles (cue downward pressure in circular motion movement) on them and they scratched.  Now, by “they,” I mean the SEALER scratched,…

If you haven’t stopped by before, the ORC is a 6 week “design challenge,” where 20 featured designers and hundreds of guest participants support each other to makeover one room in their homes in just 6 weeks (but really 5, because the Week 1 and Week 6 blog posts “bookend” the 5 weeks of work, if that makes sense).  The challenge is hosted by Calling It Home and House Beautiful, and you can check out all of the amazing room transformations over at the One Room Challenge page!  We here at Fiddle Leaf Interiors (or more…

    DIY Faux Brick Fireplace

Full disclosure:  I did this project after watching an Instagram video tutorial from Jessica Jelly over at @the_rusticpallet.  Definitely go check her out because she is the DIY #queen.
