How You Can Make A Vintage Lemonade Stand

A DIY Project to benefit girls around the world

How You Can Make A Vintage Lemonade Stand

I was challenged to create a Pinterest-worthy LemonAid stand. Inspired by my love of everything vintage, and by my mom's gorgeous country place by the ocean, I designed an old fashioned lemonade stand. I created one that could be set up at a summer party with family or friends, but the plastic glasses could easily be replaced with paper cups for a traditional roadside stand. 

Why a LemonAid stand?

IKEA Quick And Easy Textile Makeover

transform a room on a budget

by: Sarah Gunn

I am a huge fan of IKEA, so when they challenged me to transform a space in my home using only textiles as a part of their new Quick and Easy textile campaign, I jumped at the chance. It was difficult choice, because, if I am honest, so many rooms in our home still need some love. I narrowed it down to two spaces—our older son's bedroom and our basement family room. The winner, due to lighting issues, was the basement family room/guest room.

Win An Eco Room Renovation From The Property Brothers

Finally it's spring, which means it's time to start thinking of home renovation projects. I already have a huge list of things I want to change in my home to make it more functional and beautiful, but I get stuck when it comes to making green home renovation choices.

As much as I love the pretty, the reality is I need to focus on lowering utility bills, increasing my property value, and making our home a healthier and safe environment for my children.

Check out these amazing before and after shots

by: Sarah Gunn

Our basement storage room was a winning contender for an episode of Hoarders. Seriously. I had to climb over boxes and bins to get to my craft supplies. I redid the rest of the basement in the spring, so I decided to tackle this neglected corner of our house over the Christmas holiday. 

Here is what it looked like before . . . okay, if I'm honest, here is what it looked like before, after I cleaned it for about two hours:

Sarah Gunn loves interior design almost as much as she loves her two adorable boys and her hot husband. 

She has had a vision her whole life of her dream house. You know. The mansion that sits on the ocean with a pool and the massive wrap around porch. And a butler. Then she grew up. Turns out life isn't a fairytale and she's not exactly living in a castle. In fact, her house is in constant need of design intervention. Little things like children, exhaustion and budgets get in the way.

But this story does have a happy ending: years of experience watching decorating shows and clipping ideas from her favourite design magazines have equipped Sarah with the mad decorating skills she needs to turn anyone's house into the home of their dreams with great tips, tricks and inspiration. 

Join Sarah each week as she shares DIY projects, inspiration and her favourite new décor finds...all on a budget every mummy will love.

Sarah has recently had a dream of a lifetime come true: she now shares her mad DIY skills on the popular show, CityLine. She is also now designing spaces for children. If this is all a dream, then please don't wake her up.
