You may have seen this picture and thought, “oh hey, here is just another post about Noelle being extra” or “that girl has mega OCD” but I promise you’re going to love this one! And if you looked at this picture and your only reaction was that you LOVE this idea, well then YOU’RE my people (haha)!

Having kids means your house gets taken over by tiny dictators (that you created yourself) and SO MANY colorful toys. If you know me at all at this point you know I just can’t stand the burst of primary colors in my house especially when there is such an easy fix to hack it. So when I first started looking at basketball hoops for my boys’ birthday I just couldn’t find one that I wanted in my house (especially considering this isn’t a small toy!) So between that and my mom who spray paints everything she up-cycles I knew I needed to enlist her help! The truth is this project is actually super easy and while I could have done it myself it would have just been 10x harder with the kids around so my mom was happy to feed my crazy (after all, I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!)

SO back to the easy part….this really doesn’t get much more straightforward than this:

  1. Basketball Hoop: I chose this Little Tikes EasyScore set because it was simple and that is all we really need. And little tikes is a great brand! It comes with 3 little basket balls and is perfect for what I set out to do!
  2. Find somewhere to paint the hoop. Get a big tarp or cardboard, boxes etc to surround the hoop then it is time to paint!
  3. Spray paint: We used Rust-Oleum Universal Metallic Paint & Primer in One (Oil Rubbed Bronze) – You may need a couple coats to get your desired outcome but make sure the paint fully dries before moving it or doing any further coats. Letting it dry fully is key!metallic spray paint

AND just like that you’ve got a basketball hoop that is no longer an eye sore and can basically be put anywhere you want without causing much attention brought to it! Enjoy!! I know my boys surely are!

  • Today we explored @naples_zoo which was a total blast! Then we came back and swam the afternoon away and ended the night with a cook out on the roof top☀️ Tonight before bed Joie said she didn’t want to go home, not even to the new house, so I guess we live here now 👋🏼 🤣 #summervacay #naplesflorida
  • Family vacas are my jam ☀️ Nothing beats the quality time we get to spend together, even if it’s a little hectic at times having 4 little ones 5 & under 🤪 All it takes are smiles like Beau has here to make it all worth it! #poolsideviews
  • These girls never leave home without their “daughters” aka their beloved @cuddleandkind dolls so of course they made their way to Naples with us too! As much fun as we’re having I wanted to bring awareness to a special cause; Tomorrow starts Double Your Impact ‪over at Cuddle & Kind in honour of World Hunger Day. ‪Did you know that ‬66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world!? This statistic stopped me and really made me feel how fortunate we are. We can all do our part though and we can help C+K on their mission to fill hungry bellies all over the world! Here is how:
* With every doll sold, instead of donating 10 meals for each doll sold, they will donate 20!  1 doll = 20 meals!
* For every print sold, they will donate 10 meals instead of 5! 
Shop from May 25th-28th to help double your impact!! Head over to @cuddleandkind and browse their adorable collection ✨ #ad #worldhungerday #cuddleandkind
