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!painted plastic toy, painted plastic basketball hoop, basketball hoop for toddlers, modern basketball hoop, modern toys, basketball hoop DIY, DIY for kids, spray painting plastic

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!

  • It’s an exclusive club and they may be the presidents (in my humble opinion 😍) #thegooddudesclub #raisinggentlemen / @thewishingelephant
  • We’re about a month (month and a half) out from move in of our new home and antsy is an understatement! Things may be kind of slow here over this time as we have to pack up our current home and de clutter like a mofo 😂 So bear with me! I’m also going through and organizing some stuff on my blog to hopefully make my posts more accessible for you all to sort through moving forward. So much fun stuff coming up and I can’t wait to bring it all to you! For now here is the picture that started it all! I shared Joie’s updated nursery featuring her floor bed many moons ago and it blew up. Everyone loved the idea of this floor bed (which is really just a trundle bed with no wheels) and from this I created a blog to dish all the details. And 3.5 years later here we are 🙋🏻‍♀️ Thank you to everyone new and old who has made this journey so much fun! #homewithnoelle #floorbed #montessorifloorbed
  • There’s something about wanting to disinfect and clean my whole house after that run the Flu gave us the last few weeks. #ad That’s about the same time I stock up on all the things from Lemi Shine.  I know I can trust their better-for-you line which gives me the safe ingredients I need for my family but also the power of citric extracts to clean the way I need my surfaces cleaned (and without leaving behind any toxic residues!) Lemi Shine recently launched some of their amazing products at select Publix locations over Florida so make sure to check yours to see if they’re carrying it yet! You definitely will want to give this line of cleaning products a try! #cleanbetterdobetter
  • Finally sharing ALL the details from the boys’ first birthday #ontheblog now 🎉✨ See all the decor, the adorable set up I had for the boys, all the great favors and gifts we were able to donate to toys for tots! It was such a memorable day! #onewildyear #wildonebirthday #twins1stbirthday
  • Getting their new @diono Rainier 2 AXT car seats adjusted before school pickup for the girls and I can’t get over how grown up these little boys are looking 💙💚 They’re both shooting up physically and developmentally and it’s so fun to watch! Also, #twinmoms please send me all the tips on getting them to the car and in their seats safely because switching from infant seats to convertibles with twins has been a learning curve 😂 (note: I realized after this picture that Beau’s headrest needs to be lower) #diono #rainier2axt
