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.
