My friend, Jen, is one of the sweetest bloggers I’ve ever met and she’s a hard-working mom of 4 and very successful home décor and craft blogger who lives in Utah. She is one of the craftiest people I know too and is always doing some fun DIY projects (many more than I ever do!…she wears me out). She stencils, sews, slipcovers and more and her house is so adorable because of all the effort she puts into making it a true cozy home for her family. As a long time blogger, Jen has a huge following and is well known in blogging circles in our niche group.
She has recently transitioned from the darker mood of a Tuscan feel to a lighter an airier palette, just as many of us have done. I think you’ll get lots of inspiration from Jen’s projects and home at Tatertots and Jello. With a blog name like that, you know it’s going to be fun. If you haven’t met Jen yet, hop on over and say hello. She’s a doll!
One of the areas that got lightened up at Jen’s house is the kitchen. She had dark cabinets originally and had them painted white, adding touches of aqua around the room, even painting her pantry door a deep turquoise.
She even painted the backsplash that was there to lighten it up as well, leaving off some doors for open shelving to display some pretty blue pieces.
There’s that turquoise pantry door, how cute is that. I’m loving bright pops of color these days too.
Inside that pantry is her infamous pennant pantry. Look at how fun these shelves are with the pennants around the top!
Jen is always up to something fun at her blog and she slipcovered her old sofa and painted this rug. The girl is a whiz at DIY and crafty projects.
Like these family picture frames that she made. I’ve noticed that cute dog is in most of her shots.
Here’s another rug that she painted. You can find all the details on her blog.
Chevron art, no problem for Jen.
Her laundry room even got spiffed up with a painted chevron rug, damask wall treatment and lots of storage options. This is so cute! Wouldn’t you like to do laundry in here?
Outdoors gets spruced up too with pillows, a cute striped bench and another stenciled circle rug. Jen is a dynamo!
Her teen daughter’s basement room got a nautical makeover, using blue, yellow and white and it’s adorable. Love the board and batten and the planked walls.
Here’s another look at the planked walls and pillows that I’m sure Jen made. Lucky girl who lives in this room!
More stenciled pillows that Jen put together.
And yet another beautiful project, this DIY upholstered headboard that she made out of an old wooden headboard, by adding foam, batting and fabric. Now that’s clever! I love this idea, if I only had another bedroom to do.
Hope you enjoyed the creative Jen and her beautiful blog, Tatertots and Jello. I know Jen would love to meet you. She’s so pretty and equally as sweet.

I love Jen! I’ve got plans to stencil a rug for my laundry room, too — she’s truly an inspiration!

Thanks so much for the post. I loved the airy look. I am repainting my home and now I’m thinking about Windsor blue pantry doors. Probably won’t be that brave but I’ll enjoy thinking about it. There were a lot of great ideas in these pictures.
I love this look! I have been living in my current house for four years and it still looks like we just moved in! I just don’t have the talent to decorate it on my own. I discovered yesterday that you do consults Rhoda and I was THRILLED to say the least!! I LOVE your style as well and am trying to get myself together with information to contact you. My entire house need help!

I love Jen’s blog. She’s super talented! Inspirese to craft more often and great pretty things around me house too!
Jen’s kitchen is so pretty and inspiring! I have a Tuscan style kitchen that I’m so ready to make over and these photos make me want to run to the nearest paint store now!
Thanks for sharing Jen’s blog with us, Rhoda. he certainly is amazing with her crafts, especially fabric painting!
hehehe I just checked out her Downtown Abbey post!
Too funny that the intrigue of the English gentry and the English sayings are giving such jollility (yes, that IS a word, cos I say so) there!
No, I’m not English- I am Australian (Adelaide, South Australia, to be precise), but my oldest son and his wife moved to London 2 years ago. I have visited once and look forward to many more visits, but because of your blog, Rhoda, I really want to visit your area.
Keep on keeping on Rhoda- looking forward to your porch addition!)
Love the way you have made that split level house your home! Truly delightful!

I think my fav is the laundry room (how fun to do laundry there!) and that chandelier over the kitchen table. AND I so agree with you about Jen being one of the kindess and sweetest bloggers – in all my blogging years, Jen and you Rhoda have been the nicest “big bloggers” I’ve ever “worked” with . I appreciate the both of you 🙂
I am still having trouble getting your latest updates. If I try to click on your home page or your URL name, it comes up to a couple of weeks ago! Any insight?
Jeanne, I have no idea what to do. My tech guy says that everyone should be able to get on, but still some are having problems. I do link over from my Southern Hospitality facebook page every day, so you could get the links from there and come over. I wish I knew why this was happening!
