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!

  • Florida can’t seem to make up it’s mind with our weather and we keep getting little cold fronts down here! BUT, thankfully @rei has me covered with this lightweight - Trailsmith Anorak keeping me warm and providing me all the pockets 👏🏼 I’m sharing a few of my favorite spring finds from REI #ontheblog now! You know where to find the link ✨ #ad #rei #springfashionfinds
  • I just had to share these adorable captures from last night ✨ This really was such a sweet show and the cast was so nice too! Highly recommend it when it comes to your area! Thank you again @atthecapitol for having us 💕 #americangirllive
  • We really are stretching our girls’ trips these days but how could we say no to a night being hosted at @atthecapitol seeing the American Girl Live show?! #amiright 🤷🏻‍♀️🎉 We had such a blast and I shared a bunch of our night over on their insta so make sure to check it out! ✨ Double tap if you’re little one loves American Girl! If so, you have to see this show when it comes to your town! 💕#americangirl #americangirllive #aglive #americangirltour #capitoltheatre #atthecap #captakeover
  • These boys are still taking 2 naps a day and I’m not sure I ever want to give up these post nap mid-morning smiles ✨ Do I have to? 🤣 When did your little ones transition to 1 nap? #morningnap #twins
  • This photo perfectly sums up this afternoon- just a mess 🤣 1 dressed up mama, 1 kid missing (she’s back there somewhere), 1 kid screaming, 1 kid fake smiling and 1 tired teething toddler 🤦🏻‍♀️ BUT I had the absolute pleasure of meeting with another local news station today (with @aubreyonair who was SO amazing!) for another spotlight and let’s just say this is as real as it’s going to get when it comes to this crazy crew. I can’t wait to share it with you all! Stay tuned ✨ #mamastired #localnews
  • As we wait for our home to be completed (I can taste it it’s so near!) I think back to our last master suite and the one thing I’m missing most is our own bed. There is nothing like climbing into a cloud after a longggg day chasing all the tiny humans and we got that with our @tempurpedic mattress 😴 For the last 8 years that bed has been the place I find comfort in every night and I am so excited to have upgraded our old Tempurpedic mattress to the new TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt for the new house! I’m counting down the sleeps until we get to have our Tempur-Pedic back! Even better with their all new technology and pressure reliving power right were we need it to help rejuvenate us for another full day of parenting 👏🏼 #AD #luxeadapt #tempurpedic
