Remodelaholic in Review: May 2016

School is out here and it feels summer has begun! The weather is finding its perfect balance here in UT and we are seeing less rain and more heat! June is going to be a fun month as Cassity heads to the Utah Valley Parade of Homes, and shares all of her favorites with us. To follow her inside each home, make sure you are following Remodelaholic on Instagram! We are excited to share all of our summer projects with you and for you to share yours with us!

Visit for beautiful home decor DIYs and inspiration like these!

In case you missed the news last month, Cassity has started a new video series with Wayfair. Her videos have been so fun and entertaining; covering everything from creating a fairy garden to updating your office in five easy steps! If you haven’t checked them out already, follow the links, give the videos a thumbs up, and let us know what you think!!

Cassity also shared how you can multi-task while “reading” your favorite books this summer! It includes the top 10 books for this Summer “Reading” List!

If you are trying to think of fun things to do this summer, don’t make it so complicated. An easy backyard game of yard Yardzee will be a huge hit and the fun can go to any family reunion or BBQ with you! Cassity shared a fabulous Yardzee Yard Dice Game Tutorial + Free Printables so you can make your own set. (These would also be a great gift for Father’s Day coming up in a couple weeks!)

Cassity was inspired by some decor she saw on Instagram and decided she needed it for her home. So she had one of our designers create these Free Feather Printables for her to use in her home, plus all of you too! Don’t they look gorgeous in her home?


We have so many amazing contributors on our team, each one is incredibly talented! We love them and all the awesome projects they create and share! Show them some love and click to visit their sites and follow them there.

Amanda from the Love & Renovations blogs about how she and her husband are turning our 80’s, builder-grade home in something a little more special. But today she is sharing a fabulous Goodwill find makeover with us! A DIY Gold Foil Globe Update! I love the modern look they created and it looks like so much fun to create!

Maria from Simple Nature Decor has a passion for Southern architecture and style. When we saw her DIY skills at work in Turning an Old Door into a Light Fixture we were blown away. It is so unique and absolutely stunning! What a fabulous addition to any home these door light fixtures would be!
