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!

I love my family, decorating, being a total mamarazzi, shopping small, and writing. Here you will find everyday KIDspiration from kids play spaces to room décor, mom life and more.

  • I’ll be done with the vaca pics soon but as I’m here unpacking from the trip (yes, I’m still unpacking 😂) I had to share this portable playpen from @babyseater.us that we received before we left! Normally the boys FREAK OUT if we try to contain them in any sort of baby jail (I mean play pen 🤪) but because this one can be left open at times the boys took to it much better. It was their space for them play and come and go as they please. They didn’t look at it negatively because of this! SO if I needed them contained it wasn’t a huge deal to zip the side up quick while I got done what I needed to do and they kept on playing 👏🏼 I may just keep this set up ongoing for them to have their own space since they seemed to love it so much! I’m going to link this in my stories now if you’re interested! Total game changer for these two #ad #twinlife
  • She was eager to get back to playing golf so we ran out to get a couple drives in before those dark clouds made their way in🏌️‍♀️ #5yearsold #juniorgolf
  • We sure are missing our sunsets at the beach house right about now! I just pulled these pictures off my camera of the girls and they were so happy running off their energy to this beautiful scene ☀️Now it’s back to hitting golf balls at sunset until we move! You can see these little ladies working it in my stories (a full day of the #usopen will do that to ya!) 🏌️‍♀️ #beachsunsets #mygirls
  • Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there! I’m so lucky to do parenthood with this guy. He’s patient, loving, so so funny and fills in all my weaknesses 💙  Everybody he meets loves him too (to the point that I get sighs when I show up to the kids’ pediatrician without him 😆.) I think it’s safe to say our crew hit the daddy jackpot (wether they know it now or not, they will!) ✨ He really is the best! ✨Also, only 1 of 4 kids pictured because, well #4kids 😜 #happyfathersday
  • Today was a travel day for us 🚗 It was time to say good-bye to this trip and hello to the rest of summer break ☀️ The car may have been loaded with a weeks’ worth of stuff jumbled up for our crew but I still love to keep my stuff together (and separate 🤣!) I have loved how multi-functional this Day Trip bag from @loganandlenora has been for this trip and I’m so happy it arrived in time to use! From a crossbody bag to a hand bag AND it slides right on your luggage too 👏🏼 Def my new fav travel companion! #ad #summervacay
  • Last night at the house called for ice cream on the beach for sunset 🌅 Swipe to see these crazy sugar high ladies (& Lo’s sassy self)🍦We had the best week and I hate to see it end but so thankful for the time we had! Hoping our next big event is moving into our house...if it’ll ever get complete 😬 #summervacay #sunset
