Pinterest: Easy Christmas Wall Decoration

I made an easy Christmas Decoration, I saw THIS on pinterest/etsy, and new I could recreate it very easily without spending much money. In fact, I didn't spend any because I had everything at home. All I used was cardboard from a box, hot glue gun, scrapbook letters, and ribbon. Take the cardboard and wrap with wrapping paper using the glue instead of tape, or I guess you can use tape too :) Then run a long piece of ribbon along the back, make a … [Read more...]

Baby Shadow Box & Baby Welcome Sign

I just wanted to share two things that I had made for my youngest who was born November 2011. I just recently got back into blogging, so I hadn't had a chance to share them.

I recently got super bored with just the black picture frames on my mantel, so I bought a few things and decorated it different. I'm happy with it now, and it was super cheap. I'm sure I will change it around a few more times in the coming months. I don't know what happened to my before picture, but just imagine, plain black frames on it. Here is the after picture: The frame on the left I received as a wedding present, I love the detail of … [Read more...]

Barn Stars!

We recently moved to MS and I have always wanted to decorate with an Americana Country theme, so I am pursuing that! I recently purchased 3 red, white, and blue barn stars at Michaels on clearance for a whopping 79 cents a piece. I wanted them a color to actually blend in and not stick out, so I thought about decopauging them, which I actually started to do, but everything I did went wrong, it was just a bad day in general. I threw in the towel … [Read more...]

Extreme Room Makeover

A few weeks ago I posted about my mom's room that I was re-doing. We did a few things differently then what I wanted to do, but I finally finished, and she absolutely love it.

I added some sheer chocolate colored curtains, the "DREAM" letters that I made, the new duvet set, shelves that I stained, plush chocolate brown carpeting, and some vases/glass … [Read more...]
