We’；d like to welcome Kim， one of the creative DIYers behind the blog The Bragging Mommy.？ Kim admits that she loves a good DIY project.？ When Kim and her husband moved into their new housepersonalised teacher gifts， she created a laundry list of DIY to-do items.？ That list included giving her hall hutch a makeover.？ Here’；s what it looked like before：
Simple and functional.？ Kim wanted it to have more personality and felt the best way to achieve this was through color and pattern.？ She fell in love with our Herringbone Stitch Allover pattern.？ Herringbone is a very trendy geometric pattern and this particular version puts a hand-crafted spin on it.？ Kim said， “；I knew it would look perfect as a backing on my hallway hutch and it DOES!”；
Kim started the project by painting the piece of backing on the hutch.？ She painted it an off-white color to match the existing piece of furniture using Olympic in Golden Mushroom.？ Once it was dry， she was ready to stencil. ？ Kim used painters tape to hold the Herringbone Stitch stencil in place and then painted the pattern in a gorgeous teal color using a dense foam roller.
When the paint dried， she nailed it to the back of the hutch.？ She said， ”； It looks so cute and really adds a fun touch to the whole piece.”；
Ready to see what her newly stenciled hutch looks like？？ Here is a great before an after shot to show how pattern and color can add a splash of personality!
The best part is that one lucky reader will get to win a FREE stencil.？ Just enter the giveaway at The Bragging Mommy.

The holidays are a time to celebrate a years worth of joy with great gifts, being thankful for great health is second to none. Every year we take a few visits to the doctor, and at times more often during fall and winter. These visits are sometimes taken as a frequent causal check-up, and we pay very little attention to the impact doctors have in our life’s. Our busy schedules over look the importance that doctors have played a key role in our health over the years. Many pediatricians take pride in seeing their young patients grow, they have seen them crawl, walk, run and cry in the presence of needles. Most if not many pediatricians tend to children from a few months old to young adults, they personalize their approach to the individual personalities of his patients to make the experience more enjoyable, but also to create an environment were patients can confide in their doctors.
